Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Jenny Packham - State Reception

Following the Blenheim War Memorial, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge attended a state reception held at Government House on Thursday evening (April 9) in Wellington, New Zealand where the Duke unveiled a portrait of the Queen.

Catherine opted for a custom LBD from her other favourite British designer: Jenny Packham.

The fitted dress with a swing skirt was accented with a glittering fern on her shoulder to represent New Zealand’s national emblem for a charming touch.

Black pumps and a black clutch completed her look, while she opted to wear her hair down this evening following a rare ponytail earlier in the day.
