Another day, another incredible dress the Duchess of Cambridge stepped out in that we want in our lives immediately. The stunning wife of Prince William headed to London's Design Museum last week, for an event hosted by the British Fashion Council. Kate was there to present the Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design.

The brunette royal wore a stunning belted dress by Edeline Lee that perfectly encapsulated her feminine silhouette. Complete with a chunky belt, funnel neckline and subtle knots at the sleeves, the striking emerald dress is an unrivalled addition to Kate's dress repertoire. Love! Costing £785, it's not the cheapest of frocks the mother-of-three has worn, but not the most expensive either. If you fancy investing, you can pick it up in Harrods.

However, if you're looking for something similar with a lower price tag, we've found this gorgeous dress by Reiss, that is giving us serious Duchess vibes.

The 'Emily' dress costs £188 and is designed in a very similar shade that Kate wore. The website says of the style: "The Emily dress is crafted from a luxuriously lightweight linen blend fabrication, to a midi length with a belted midriff that allows the profile to be cinched for an elegant silhouette."

During the appearance, Kate met representatives from the British Fashion Council and the wider fashion industry, including Editor-in-Chief of British VOGUE, Edward Enninful. After Kate resented the award, she watched a fashion show from the winner.
