Kate Middleton is one of those women with an effortless glow about them, and on Monday she upped it a few notches further, with some help from a sparkling, champagne-hued dress (below). 

Middleton joined her husband, Prince William and Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham Palace for a celebration of Indian culture, hosting the event along with the Queen to mark the launch of U.K.-India Year of Culture 2017. The Year of Culture is celebrating the ties between the U.K. and India, as well as fêting the 70th anniversary of Indian independence.

The dress, made by British designer Erdem, reminded us of a more casual version of Oscar-nominee Isabelle Huppert's gown from last night's Academy Awards, and we're loving it. Middleton paired the mid-length silhouette with earrings from Indian designer Anita Dongre, and matching pointed-toe heels.
