Royal Wedding, Wedding Dresses

When people say that all little girls dream of being a princess, I hope this is what they mean. Because if every would-be princess looked as stunning as Kate did for her first official public appearance as a newly minted royal, well, we'd be a world of well-dressed princesses. The Duchess arrived to the Absolute Return for Kids benefit gala—which raised $28 million to help children in Africa, Romania, India, and the U.K.—in London yesterday in a pearlescent blush Jenny Packham gown. The dress is cut from silk tulle and embellished with sequins and Swarovski crystal beads. And because it's from Packham's Spring 2011 ready-to-wear collection, you too can own Kate's gala gown for $6,300—if only it weren't already sold out in the U.K. To see more Jenny Packham designs, visit our Wedding Dresses gallery. —Phillip B.
