She's already impressed the fash pack with a chic Rebecca Taylor ensemble today and wowed the crowd in a Matthew Williamson frock at the 'African Cats' premiere last night and now Kate Middleton is back! For her second royal outing of the day, she's joining Prince William at a reception to launch the Imperial War Museum Foundation's 'First World War Galleries: Centenary Campaign'. So what's she wearing for the red carpet shindig?

Clarence House have informed us that her charcoal knee-length frock comes courtesy of Amanda Wakeley, the Brit designer who has dressed A-list types from Angelina Jolie, Amber Heard and Heidi Klum. She's accessorised the look with a chain belt and the black Jimmy Choo heels we've seen before. And doesn't her hair look super sophisticated in that half-up 'do with a slight bouffant?

Speaking of which, this isn't the first time the Duchess has selected a touch of the Wakeley. Most memorably, she attended her first solo engagement on behalf of Prince Charles last October wearing a sweeping gown from the designer's Autumn Winter 2006 catwalk. Prior to that, she visited the Royal Marsden Hospital in September wearing a grey felt Spring Summer 2011 dress with her favourite nude LK Bennett pumps and the week before her wedding, she chose a vintage navy Amanda Wakeley suit for a trip to Witton County Park in Darwen.

In fact, the aforementioned grey dress is the oatmeal-toned version of the charcoal dress she's wearing this evening. According to the brilliant What Kate Wore blog, Kate purchased the style in three colours last year for £450 each.

Same for most luxurious, or off-roadable, or any other measurement.

    The TT. Audi's diminutive sports car. Since production began in 1998, the two-door coupe has aged with the pugnacity of a grizzled New Yorker, but not in size. And why would it, as the arrival of the TT RS proved, adding some grit makes for a rather captivating dish. And so you'll excuse us for being puzzled by the Audi TT Offroad concept.
