Royal Kate stops by a SportsAid bash

Kate Middleton made a stunning solo public appearance last night.

The mum-of-one stepped out in London to attend the SportsAid 2013 event in a figure-flatting designer black dress.

Kate teamed her knee-length lace Temperley number with a pair of plain courts and a red clutch which added a festive feel to her look. 

But it wasn’t just Kate‘s chic frock that turned heads, Prince William‘s pretty wife also revealed a darker new hairstyle.

The 31-year-old centre-parted her glossy deep brown locks and gently curled the ends to tumble around her shoulders.

Kate‘s latest shade comes weeks after she was snapped with grey roots at a Poppy Appeal function with her husband.
