Kate Middleton wows in pastel Emilia Wickstead dress

Pregnant Kate Middleton wowed the crowds at the opening of the Art Room charity at the National Portrait Gallery in London last night.

The Duchess of Cambridge showcased one of her first proper maternity looks as she dressed her baby bump in a powder blue Emilia Wickstead frock for the occasion.

Her ‘50s-style, A-line pastel frock was nipped in above the waist to show off her pregnancy shape. 

The Duchess styled the look with a pair of grey suede court shoes and diamond earrings as fans gathered to watch her make the entrance into the venue in the capital.

Kate looked breathtaking with her brunette locks tied into a half-up, half-down style which allowed fans to catch a glimpse of her stunning make-up look.

Diamond drop earrings and her wedding rings completed her fashion-forward, spring look.

She was criticised recently for her floral Erdem look, which was labelled by some experts as ‘frumpy.’

And many people have wondered when the pregnant Duchess would begin to start showing her baby bump, as at six months down the line she has yet to truly show.
