Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge was the Lady in Red as she hobnobbed with several celebrities during the Dramatic Arts reception held at Buckingham Palace on February 17, 2014 in London, England.

Invited to the reception were several actors including Joan Collins, who looked splendid in her silver metallic coat and matching pointed silver pumps, Dame Helen Mirren, Dame Angela Lansbury, Alan Rickman, Uma Thurman, Sir David Attenborough, Helena Bonham Carter, Trevor Eve, Lenny Henry, Lynda La Plante and Richard E Grant – several of whom performed this evening. Film directors Steve McQueen and Sir Trevor Nunn were also in attendance.

Duchess Kate chose a red Alexander McQueen dress with pleated skirt and long sleeves for the star-studded event, which she teamed with a small clutch and black pumps. The ornate gold dangling earrings were very eye-catching as well…

Plum-pouted Helena Bonham Carter was in her element as well, donning her slightly quirky black signature look, this time with a Victorian style black plaid jacket, black lace-edged top and tiered skirt, teamed with black pumps and frilly edged socks.

Also attending the star-studded gala were Sir Roger Moore and wife Kristina Tholstrup, Ralph Fiennes, Joely Richardson and John Hurt.

Kate helped to co-host with Grandmother-in-Law Queen Elizabeth II, looking pretty in turquoise, whose shoes she will be filling some day…
