The Duchess joins sexy supermodel brigade
I'm pretty certain no one was listening that closely to Prince William's speech at the dinner he attended on Wednesday.
Not when he had such hot competition from his Duchess.
Flashing a glimpse of slender leg with a very sexy, Angelina-at-the-Oscars-style split, the girl from Buckinghamshire was clearly ready to try a new, less demure look.

In her place was brunette bombshell Kate, confidently sporting a £1,000 cream floor-skimming Roland Mouret number.
From the French genius' 2009 collection, it was a hit among the supermodels.
The stunning gown was previously modelled by sizzling Vogue covergirl Amber Valleta in teal and international glamourpuss Carla Bruni-Sarkozy.
Madame Sarkozy was seen sashaying down the steps of the Elysee Palace in it at a state dinner in 2010.
Kate topped it off with big, bouncy curls and sterling silver earrings from Beaut, which cost £195 and can be purchased from beautjewellery.com.
Then, there were the vertiginous Jimmy Choo Vamp platforms.
The twinkling, Princess-like peeptoe sandals — which she wore last summer to woo the Hollywood contingent — meant she had to eschew the nude tights that she so loves and go bare-legged.
And I love the va-va-voom crimson nail polish that finished off the effect.
