The Duchess of Cambridge looked like a movie star as she attended the first annual gala dinner in recognition of Addiction Awareness Week.

The mum-of-three braved the rain in a stunning off the shoulder dress by Brazilian designer Barbara Casasola and a sparkling pair of Jimmy Choo heels.

Kate looked as classy as ever as she arrived at the gala dinner. The Duchess spoke about how much the cause means to her during the event.

Speaking at the dinner, The Duchess said: "What’s remarkable about Action on Addiction is that it goes beyond helping those who are suffering on the courageous journey into recovery – it also lends direct support to the children and families affected by addiction – for as long as it takes."

Action on Addiction is the only UK addictions charity that works across all the areas of research, treatment, family support and professional education.

Addiction Awareness Week’s aim is to encourage people to have conversations about the many different facets of addiction. They also hope to support people and families affected by addiction and boost public awareness of the far-reaching and negative effects of addiction.

“The ultimate aim is that as honest but inspirational stories are shared, those affected by addiction will then feel more able to take the necessary steps to access help, hope and freedom from their addiction,” Kensington Palace explained.

Kate has received high praise for working with such an important cause. Fans of the Duchess couldn’t help but commend her for her inspiring work.
