Kate Middleton (now officially Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge) changed into another dress by McQueen’s Sarah Burton for the post-wedding evening party at Buckingham Palace. Dress No. 2 is strapless, made of plain satin gazar, and nipped at the waist with a diamante embroidered band. Perhaps chilly, Kate’s also wearing a white angora bolero cardigan, which looks poised to shed white fluff all over William’s crisp black tux.

Hosted by Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, the party includes 300 guests and reportedly has an informal “disco” theme. A highlight of the evening will undoubtedly be Prince Harry’s toast to the couple, which is expected to be scandalous (and hopefully booze-fueled). The couple will spend their first night together as newlyweds in the palace. The Queen, meanwhile, has departed for a private weekend at an undisclosed location so that the youngsters can be as rowdy as they please.

Summary: For her wedding reception, Kate Middleton, now the Duchess of Cambridge, debuted her second dress and it was, obviously, stunning. She certainly kept Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen busy – Burton designed the second dress as well as the dress for the ceremony.

As she left Prince Charles’ home, Clarence House, on her way to Buckingham Palace for the big party, she showed off the dress, which complemented the ceremony dress but was more subdued. A sleek, strapless dress with a diamante detail at the waist, the dress was paired with an angora bolero jacket.

Kate’s sister Pippa also stepped out in her second dress, an emerald gown with jeweled detail that she accessorized with a beaded clutch.
