Catherine, The Duchess Of Cambridge Hosted Naomi Campbell, Adwoa Aboah And More At Buckingham Palace Last Night

When fashion royalty meets British Royalty


Buckingham palace opened it's ornate doors to some fabulous and fashionable guests last night.

A seven-month pregnant Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, hosted the evening, which was held to celebrate a new creative initiative called the Commonwealth Fashion Exchange.

Wearing yet another gorgeous, Erdem gown, Kate welcomed designers, editors and models alike to launch the enterprise.

The 36 year-old mother-of-two spoke to British designer Stella McCartney at the event.

Ashley Williams, who showed her collection on Friday at London Fashion Week, was also at the event, and posted her invite to the palace on Instagram.

Models such as Naomi Campbell, Erin O'Connor and Neelam Gill turned up in their finest clothes (naturally).

Adwoa Aboah, who earlier this week posted a snap with London Mayer Sadiq Khan at the Ashley Williams show, wore a tie-dye suit by Alex Mullins, while 47-year-old Campbell looking breath-taking in a vintage Pierre Cardin dress.

She also posted a snap on the invite which showed her name spelt incorrectly.

The Londoner didn't seem to hold it against anyone, however, and was photographed talking to Sophie, Countess of Wessex and the Chief Executive of the British Fashion Council, Caroline Rush.

On it's website, the Commonwealth Fashion Exchange says that its aim is to, 'showcase the power and potential of artisan fashion skills to deliver new networks, trade links and highlight sustainability.'

That's something we can certainly get on board with, particularly if we can nab an invite to the next Buckingham palace soiree.
