Daring Duchess scores gold with stunning look at Olympics gala

Swathed in a teal floor-sweeping Jenny Packham gown, the Duchess of Cambridge looked very inch the elegant royal at a soiree in the Royal Albert Hall this weekend. 

The dramatic dress, featuring a lace bodice with a sheer back, marked a second daring sartorial move for Kate in just one week.

And in a sure sign that she is making a conscious effort to enter new style territory, Kate was sporting an updo that had been created by a team from the Richard Ward salon in Chelsea.

The intricate, braided undo showed off the beautifully detailed gown to perfection and was a refreshing change from her trademark, tumbling tresses.

Instead of her usual nude heels, the 30-year-old opted for the Jimmy Choo 'Vamp' heels that she wore for her show-stopping appearance early last week.
