Sure, she's royalty, but it turns out Kate Middleton's look for a Summer night out might not be that far off from your own. In a Barbara Casasola dress that captures one of the season's biggest trends, the duchess expertly bared her shoulders while attending a dinner at the Natural History Museum in London, and made us wonder: is Kate following trends?

From her usual picks, which veer on the more traditional side, Kate has embraced a ladylike look and a lineup of mostly British labels. This dress, however, comes from a Brazilian designer, which may be a first for Kate, as is the somewhat more daring neckline. Still, we'll admit, even when she's taking a risk, Kate knows what works; the dress suits her perfectly. The off-the-shoulder neckline elegantly adds interest to an otherwise modest silhouette, as do the accoutrements, including a pearlescent clutch and a pair of peach Schutz ankle-strap heels, which completed the outfit.
