Kate Middleton's dress at the Our Greatest Team Rises Gala Dinner at London's Royal Albert Hall has sent ripples worldwide. Without a doubt, the Duchess of Cambridge is upping her style quotient as time goes by. She wore a teal colored evening dress by Jenny Packham and paired it with Jimmy Choo VAMP platform sandals. Here is a rundown of the best Kate Middleton dress and everything that went with it including hair, makeup, shoes, jewelry and accessories that you can buy online.

Kate Middleton's hair and makeup

1) Hair

We've seen Kate Middleton carry off her long and wavy hair at one public function after another. This time she chose something different. At the Our Greatest Team Rises Gala Dinner, Kate Middleton had her hair tied up in a delightful Chignon style bun. Kate had her own version of the Chignon with a side parting that swept up into an updo that merged into a lovely knotted bun.

2) Eyebrows and eye-makeup

Shunning razor thin eyebrows, the Duchess of Cambridge carried off her usual scouse brow which gave natural touch to her look. The thick brows were fitting to her smoky black yet fading mascara, liner and a light touch of shimmery shadow.

3) Facial makeup

The beauty about Kate Middleton's makeup quotient is that it is never in-your-face. Her cheekbones were highlighted with a tinge of rouge. Other than that, she kept as much of a natural look as possible and let her glowing features do the talking.

4) Lips

Going along with the natural look, Catherine stayed away from pouty lips and dark/bright lip color with what seemed to be nude/clear lip color which made way for a lovely down to earth and warm smile.

Is this Duchess of Cambridge's best dress ever? Kate Middleton has yet again proved that her commoner style quotient is equally suave, if not more, than a royal.

This teal Jenny Packham dress could very well be the best Kate Middleton dress ever. From the front, one of the first things you notice is the bold plunging neckline. It appears that this dress was custom made for the Duchess of Cambridge.

The original evening dress from the Jenny Packham Spring/Summer Collection 2012 is green in color and its neckline plunges way down to the waist. In Kate's dress, although the neckline plunged almost below her cleavage, the intricate lace inner/blouse added an elegant touch of style while protecting her modesty.

Beautiful gems adorned the lace shoulders and the back of the dress. The back was held together by a line of buttons starting from the nape of her neck to her waist, ending at a flat bow on her belt.

On the front, the belt had a jeweled waist in an almost flower-like arrangement. The belt and its jeweled waist were slightly darker than teal, towards blue.

The gown of the dress from the waist down was heavily pleated. The pleats were heavy at the back and lighter at the front.

The body hugging fit at the top seamlessly flowed into an open and wavy gown at the bottom. The nearly floor touching length was perfect as the dress gave everyone a glimpse of her toes and the sparkling Jimmy Choo shoes as she walked.

In line with the teal colored dress, Kate carried a small clutch which also had an intricately designed fabric.

The color of Kate Middleton's clutch was slightly lighter than teal, towards green and was reportedly designed and custom made by Jenny Packham to match the dress.

Platform sandals by Jimmy Choo

Everyone knew they were in for a stunning spectacle the minute Kate stepped out of the car. Her Jimmy Choo Strappy Platforms were the first to catch the public eye.

Kate Middleton's shoes were Jimmy Choo VAMP platform sandals. The straps on the platforms are made from a shimmery fabric.

Kate showed she is definitely not shy of wearing the same thing twice in the public eye as she had worn the Jimmy Choo VAMPs only a few days back while attending an engagement.

Jimmy Choo VAMP platform sandals are available online in the exact champagne color as worn by Kate Middleton. They have a 115mm or a 4.5 inch heel, a leather lining and an adjustable strap that is held together with a lovely gold colored buckle. You can buy the same design online from Jimmy Choo's website for 550 pounds suede for a price of 750 dollars.Check out other Jimmy Choo designs to your right.

Kate Middleton's Jewelry

Minimal is the name of the game as Kate Middleton's jewelry was restricted to only earrings and her engagement ring.

1) Earrings

The Duchess of Cambridge wore long silver teardrop earrings which ran along the sides of her neck. Her earrings were quite the highlight this time around as she did not have her wavy hair covering them.

2) Engagement ring

The only other jewelry piece that Kate had on her was her engagement ring. Prince William gave this ring to Kate Middleton when he proposed to her. The ring was originally given by Prince Charles to Princess Diana when they got engaged in 1981. Replicas of this ring can be bought online on Amazon.com.

Metal Master's Co. sells a ring made of sterling silver that is a replica of Kate Middleton's engagement ring. A 4 carat blue sapphire cubic zirconia gem adorns the solid sterling silver. The ring has a very affordable price tag and comes in a cozy Metal Master's gift box.

Style check

Why is the teal Jenny Packham evening gown the best Kate Middleton dress ever? Simply because the Duchess has carried it off perfectly and paired it with the right accessories. The lace fabric of the dress on Kate's shoulders made way to a heavier fabric that seemed like the perfect fit for Kate Middleton's slender body. The lace back and buttons that ran along her spine made for a priceless Victorian era look while the custom made greenish-teal clutch matched the striking teal colored dress. So how do you describe Kate's look at Our Greatest Team Rises Gala Dinner hosted at London's Royal Albert Hall in just a few words? "Timelessly Elegant" says Princesswithapen.
