All eyes were on the Duchess of Cambridge Tuesday. She started the day making a fashionable appearance at a charity event at London's Islington Town Hall. But before the day was over, she stepped out in style again.

The Duchess wore a floor-length gown by designer Erdem Moralioglu. The royal blue and deep red orchid print dress came complete with a long, sweeping ruffle.

While the dress could be considered a work of art on its own, Kate was at the gala to support a different sort of artistic expression. The event was held to benefit The Art Room, a national charity that utilizes art therapy to assist children experiencing behavioral and emotional problems.

Duchess Kate has been the royal patron of The Art Room since 2012.
