Get ready to hem, haw and curse the Heavens over the Duchess of Cambridge's dazzling first postbaby appearance. Sparkling — no, like, literally sparking — in a floor-length pale gold-glittered Jenny Packham frock with crystal motif, the new mama was every ounce the belle of the ball at last night's Tusk Conservation Awards gala (the first ceremony thrown as part of Prince William's African charity).
Though the first-time mama has been spotted out and about since giving birth to Prince George back in July, last night's dinner marked her first official public appearance. The proud parents left the royal baby at home with his new nanny, Jessie Webb. Kate told reporters in the crowd that her 7-week-old baby boy is a "mix" of both mom and dad.
But now — for details on Kate Middleton's stunning gown! Check out how fabulous the new mama looks:
