The Duchess of Cambridge opened the Victoria & Albert Museum’s new Photography Centre in London, on Wednesday night, wearing a new dress by designer favourite Erdem.

Kate wowed in the £1395 ($AU 2.6k) ‘Iman’ off-the-shoulder embellished boucle-tweed midi dress from the Canadian-born, British-based designer’s spring ’18 collection.

She paired the dress with new, floral hooped statement earrings from the label and teamed the frock with deep purple accessories, including a waist cinching belt and plum velvet pumps from Jimmy Choo.

It marks Kate’s first engagement as patron of the V&A, after being named its first back in March.

The Duchess toured the new display entitled Collecting Photography: From Daguerreotype to Digital, which includes images from the 19th century to the present day. 

Kate studied art history at the University of St Andrews, where she met Prince William.

This is Kate’s third royal appearance after returning from maternity leave last week.
