All that glitters and all that. The Duchess of Cambridge has sparkled her way to the top of this week's Royal Wardrobe poll in a shimmering gown chosen for a regal reception. This week, there were five royal outfits in the spotlight with the question being which best summed up regal dressing in 2017 and the answer was Kate.

The metallic cocktail dress, with sparkling sleeves and pleated post knee length skirt, was worn to a reception for the start of the UK India Year of Culture 2017 hosted by the Queen at Buckingham Palace.

It's rather elegant and came with the added bonus of sparkling shoes - could this mean the nude heels so beloved of the Duchess of Cambridge have finally been retired? Or at least given a year off for good behaviour?

This is a standout look for Kate with plenty of glitter and sparkle while ticking the restrained elegance box at the same time. It suits her and the event down to the ground and more than holds its own in the grand setting of Buckingham Palace. What royal dressing is all about in 2017.
