Kate's glittering winner

In the end, it was all about evening. The Royal Wardrobe poll this week looked at the Duchess of Cambridge's five outfits from Paris and the evening styles came out on top. Finishing first in the weekly quest to find the week's outfit that best sums up royal dressing was an ice blue gala gown, seen for the first time in the city of light.  Here's Kate's latest glittering winner.

The gown worn by the Duchess of Cambridge that won so many likes was created by Jenny Packham. It features mid length sleeves, a fitted top and skirt and plenty of embellishment with sparkling lines spreading out across the dress and a glittering waistband bringing it all together.

Two of the five Paris looks we saw from Kate were evening gowns and the black Alexander McQueen dress, worn to a reception just hours before the dinner, came second in the poll. Kate's first foray into the world of Chanel came joint third with the new Catherine Walker coat which she also wore to the St Patrick's Day parade. But it's the pure Parisian chic of the baby blue evening dress that best summed up royal dressing in this week's survey and will be Kate's lasting style memory of Paris.
