The Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine Middleton, never ceases to impress with her impeccable style choices and risks. She proved this point once again while attending the Sun Military Awards recently with husband Prince William and his rambunctious brother Prince Harry.
Middleton chose a stunning black velvet floor-length gown for the event honoring the countless men and women who serve in the British army. The strapless dress had a sweetheart neckline and was snug through her hips. The gown then went out a bit and touched the ground allowing for an ultra-glamorous train. The velvet material added luxury to the look and the deep, jet black hue, played up the vibe even more.
Although her dress was rich in fabric and feel, her jewels were even more spectacular. She rocked her famous engagement ring, a few diamond bracelets and a remarkable diamond and ruby encrusted necklace. To balance her ultra fancy jewelry, Middleton opted to keep her shiny brown hair down and perfectly coiffed with a few gentle waves, proving she really is the peoples' princess. Middleton's cosmetics were elegant - a subtle light pink lipstick in a matte finish and rosy pink blush for her cheeks worked wonders. Her eye makeup consisted of black eyeliner on her upper and lower lids and eyeshadow in shades of brown, gold and light pink.
