Kate shone during the official visit, proving that that she possesses the sparkle, poise and megawatt smile to rival that of any red-carpet star.
Sweeping into the BAFTA Brits to Watch black-tie dinner last night in a palest lilac Alexander McQueen gown, the Duchess left the film industry’s upper crust clambering for an introduction.
‘Well I’m such a romantic I’m so enchanted with them,’ Mary-Louise Parker told WWD. ‘They are everything you want them to be.’
Nicole Kidman, who said she had ‘no idea’ what she would say to the couple were she introduced because she is ‘quite shy’; Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Garner, Blake Lively, Zooey Deschanel and Barbra Streisand donned their red-carpet best to meet the royal couple.
The event saw Kate, also wearing a pair of diamond earrings borrowed from the Queen, a diamond bracelet, and a Jimmy Choo handbag and shoes, support emerging British film talent. 42 young actors and filmmakers including Juno Temple, Jessica Brown Findlay and Talulah Riley rubbed shoulders with established producers at the networking event.
