If this dress looks familiar to you, it’s because Kate has worn it before. I liked it then, I like it now, and let’s all give praise for the fact that it’s apparently Shoe Inspirational for Kate, because the ones she wore with it previously were cute, too, and this evening we’ve got these Sparkly Jimmy Choos, which she wore to the BAFTAs in January.
Kate’s inherent chattiness is a real boon to her in this gig:

I loved these pics:
“What’s remarkable about @ActionAddiction is that it goes beyond helping those who are suffering on the courageous journey into recovery – it also lends direct support to the children and families affected by addiction – for as long as it takes.” #AddictionAwarenessWeek pic.twitter.com/O09CAnin23

And, indeed, she also gave a speech:

(A) She’s VERY coordinated with the inside of this venue, how chic, and (b) her speech-giving has improved quite a bit over the last few years.
