The kings and queens of Hollywood came out to meet the future king and queen of England, and not since the last Oscar ceremony has there been so much glamor on the red carpet.
The event was the British Academy of Film & Television Arts’ Brits to Watch gala. Prince William is the president of BAFTA, an organization that has a strong presence in Hollywood.
Kate was definitely the style standout of the gala, held in downtown L.A. The Duchess of Cambridge wore a lilac chiffon Alexander McQueen gown accessorized with earrings she’d borrowed from Queen Elizabeth.
Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Garner, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson were all there. Jennifer Lopez was seen chatting with the Prince before the dinner got underway. Barbra Streisand and husband James Brolin got some one-on-one time with the Prince as well.
Blake Lively, Maria Bello, Zooey Deschanel and Elizabeth Banks were among the fashion stand-outs. We also spotted Jack Black, Piers Morgan and Mary-Louise Parker.
