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.

    2015 Nissan Murano aims for the style-forward crowd

    Nissan says its 2015 Murano crossover, only the second major revamp of the car since it debuted in 2003, draws its design cues from the “age of future space flight.” That’s probably taking it a little far, but the new Murano, based off the 2013 Resonance concept vehicle, is an exceptionally lovely machine, all fluid, curved metal on the outside, and flowing, soft-touch materials on the inside. Certain kinds of comfort and charms that were unheard-of outside of premium vehicles five years ago have definitely trickled down, and reached a kind of design apotheosis with this car.

    Volkswagen brings new (ish) Jetta to New York along with Golf Sportwagen

    With its new President and CEO of America, Michael Horn, on stage in New York after just 100 days on the job, Volkswagen debuted its 2015 Jetta. You'd be forgiven for noticing little differences compared to the outgoing model, and in the words of Horn himself, the changes are indeed subtle. The most notable of those subtleties is the all-new 2.0 liter turbo diesel motor, offering 45 mpg highway and a modest increase of 10 hp. For VW, diesel is where it's at.

    With Vantage GT, Aston Martin races below $100,000

    Aston Martin is going downmarket, sort of. The 2015 Vantage GT, a sport-styled variant of Aston’s legendary flagship car, draws style and performance tips from their GT4 race cars, which will be running in North America this year. It’s also priced at $99,900, which shows that the market for these kinds of consumer sports cars has boomed in recent years.
