There’s no denying it: the Duchess of Cambridge stunned at the Absolute Return for Kids (ARK) gala in London Thursday. Hitting the carpet in a pearlescent rose-colored silk tulle Jenny Packham dress with sequin and Swarovski crystal beading ($6,300; currently sold out in the U.K.) — plus delicate L.K. Bennett Agata Rose heels ($315; currently sold out) — Catherine was the picture of a true princess. But she’s not the first star to step out in one of the British designer’s glimmering spring/summer 2011 creations. Ashley Tisdale made a splash at the Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Viewing Party in February, wearing a nude antique lace Packham gown with an asymmetrical neckline and crystal-beaded waist. Sandra Bullock dazzled at the Golden Globes in January in a powder pink one-shoulder crystal-encrusted gown, accented with understated jewels. And Leighton Meester wore a tea length Packham dress with similar sparkle as Upper East Side queen Blair Waldorf on a recent episode of Gossip Girl. We think all four ladies looked lovely in their Packham creations, but want to know what you think. Tell us: Who wore their Jenny Packham dress best? Kate Hogan, with reporting by Monique Jessen

she’s pretty but way too skinny!

Ohh Yes Catherine, HRH the Duchess of Cambridge, She is so beautiful. it’s doesn’t matter for skinny.
I am skinny too. that’s normal. I am fan of her.

She is so beautiful and that dress is perfect on her. She is extremely thin, but her frame is very thin. My concern is that, as she goes about her busier schedule now, she will be in danger of losing more if she doesn’t eat more. She is gorgeous, though, and a perfect match for William.

Well, so much for her not spending big bucks while the common people struggle!

Get over it Jane

I love the blush colours. The Duchess looks lovely!!
True she’s thin, but not too thin, she looks healthy. I’m sure she lost weight leading up to her wedding. The stress of millions of people watching will do that! I was stressed out and lost 15 lbs before my wedding, and I only had 120 people watching me :)

The dress is beautiful, she is gorgeous, but I’m not sure if it is flattering to her body shape. Seems to be meant for someone with an hourglass or slight pear figure, and she’s more inverted triangle.

@ Jane
She usually does buy clothes off the rack. She’s a duchess, get over it. I would wear beautiful clothes as well I were in her position

I seriously doubt she bought this dress. Having the duchess wear your dress would be any designer’s dream!!

Simply ESPECTACULAR!!!!
