Kate Middleton can’t hurt her style choices.
The 37-year-old Duchess of Cambridge looked fantastic when she attended the first annual gala dinner on Wednesday in recognition of the Addiction Awareness Week at Phillips Gallery in London. Kate, the patron saint of Action on Addiction, was without Prince William and wore a well-fitting, off-the-shoulder long dress by Barbara Casasola, which she combined with silver, sparkling Jimmy Choo shoes and silver clutch.
The mother of three, known for recycling her stylish ensembles, previously wore the dress at the Art Fund Museum of the Year in 2016.
Before dinner, Kate took the time to chat with Action Addiction customers who were preparing meals for the event.
Kate also took the stage that evening to speak out about the importance of prevention and helping people suffering from addiction.
“I have met so many people suffering from addiction, and I have seen again and again that the cause unfortunately often goes back to the very first years of a person’s life,” she said. “Unfortunately, for many people suffering from an addiction, they simply do not get enough help they need, they have already reached the crisis point before they find the support they need.”
“What stands out about Action on Addiction is that it goes beyond helping people suffering from the courageous journey to recovery – it also provides direct support to the children and families affected by addiction – while it lasts,” Kate added . .
Earlier this week, Kate and William left for the English rural community of Keswick, Cumbria. The couple visited the city to honor the leadership and volunteers of the community that helped the quiet rural area thrive.
