Talk about making an entrance!
All eyes were on Duchess Catherine as she and her husband Prince William attended a glamorous reception in their honour on Monday evening.
Kate commanded the room as she waltzed into British Columbia's Government House wearing a scarlet cocktail dress.
The midi dress, by London designer Preen, features an asymmetrical neckline and pulls into the waist before dropping in a dramatic A-line skirt, cut with pleats to sit just before the ankle.
The beautiful gown, which will no doubt sell out in a matter of hours, is titled by the British brand as the Finella Midi Dress, and has a price tag of £1000 or $1,800 AUD.
Kate's stunning red frock has already sold out on many online retailers!
Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s mother accessorised her look with a pair of red, suede Miu Miu pumps and a matching clutch.
She kept her jewellery simple with a pair of stunning drop earrings, and for the second time since touching down in Canada, the 34-year-old donned The Queen’s diamond Maple Leaf Brooch, which perfectly paid tribute to her host nation.
The stunning brooch was lent to the Duchess by Her Majesty herself!
Government House was a convenient choice for the lavish reception, as it also happens to be the place where the family shall reside throughout their week-long stay in Canada.
While Wills and Kate greeted locals and chatted animatedly to guests and attendees, their son George, three, and 16-month-old Charlotte slept peacefully upstairs.
