We love a good sparkly dress. Some of us are wearing sparkly dresses right now, even those who work from home. The shimmery princess dress Kate Middleton chose for her first post-baby formal event pleases us greatly.

The dress was designed by Jenny Packham, who is starting to seem like Middleton’s go-to designer, and it’s a custom-made item that is rumored to have cost around $6,300.

Of course, the first post-baby evening gown is a momentous event in the life of every woman princess, so US Weekly made sure to scan for any sign of a remaining baby bump.

Those closest to the Duchess, meanwhile, have been marveling for weeks at her amazingly slim figure following the Prince’s birth. “A few weeks after George was born, you could hardly tell she had just given birth,” the source marveled to Us of the 31-year-old Duchess. “Kate’s still breastfeeding, and the small weight she gained while pregnant has just melted off. She’s not dieting.”

Honestly, it’s Kate Middleton, so of course she looks gorgeous. She always looks beautiful and elegant and just fashion-forward enough to not look frumpy.  She doesn’t exactly take risks, so it’s not like she’s going to turn up wearing something weird and avant-garde and hideous. It’s just not going to happen. Trust us, we’ve sacrificed like 14 pigeons to the Gods of the Internet to make Kate Middleton wear Brian Lichtenberg to dinner with the Queen, and if it hasn’t happened by now we have to admit that it just is not going to.

But if she’s not going to show up wearing a freaky Gremlin skirt, at least she’s bringing her A-game when it comes to the sparkle.
