This evening, the Duchess of Cambridge stepped out for another glamorous affair (the third one in a week!) to attend the annual 100 Women in Hedge Funds gala.
The 100 Women in Hedge Funds organization is described as “a leading nonprofit organization for investors and professionals in the Alternatives industry”. They host an annual charitable gala, where you can usually count on a royal in attendance! This year’s London gala was hosted at the Victoria and Albert Museum, a London landmark perfect for a very formal affair.
Each year, the gala raises funds for a London-based charity – this year, The Art Room was the chosen organization. The Duchess of Cambridge has been patron of The Art Room since 2012, making this event particularly special for her.
Last year, Prince Harry was the royal attendee as the fundraiser sponsored one of his patronages, WellChild. 100WHF is also a member of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Charities Forum, which may explain their interest in royally-patronized charities! Kate has attended the event twice before, in 2012 and 2013, and it has become an expected event on her calendar.
Kate really wowed with tonight’s look! She wore a bold and bright floral print gown from Erdem. The “Alouette” dress was inspired by 1960’s Japanese floral graphics.
The Duchess really brought the glam with a pair of diamond and sapphire chandelier earrings, once owned by the Queen Mother. She also accessorized with her Jimmy Choo “Cosmic” pumps and her Anya Hindmarch clutch.
Another glittering gala for the Duchess!
