Modern-day princesses like Kate Middleton don't always walk around in ball gowns — she likes jeans just like the rest of us — unless it's a special event. For the East Anglia Children's Hospice fundraiser, of which Kate is a patron, the duchess of Cambridge arrived on scene in a flared Marchesa Notte dress. The designer piece featured sheer red panels and floral netting details covered the entire dress. Per usual, Kate went for matching accessories, carrying a clutch and sporting Kate Spade New York earrings in similar burgundy shades.

The royal smiled widely as she stepped onto the red carpet, and in this moment, she looked more princess-like than ever. Even without a tiara on her head, Kate's dress coupled with her poise reminded us why we all fell in love with the royal in the first place. And if you're absolutely head over heels for her entire outfit, you can shop her exact earrings and dress ahead, plus some similar gown options, too.
