Kate Middleton always pulls out a few fashion gems once Christmas rolls around, whether it's bold accessories like an oversized tartan scarf, dazzling two-pieces and that iconic shimmering green The Vampire's Wife gown.

As a fashion darling, Kate never fails to make the most of a rich winter outfit, and her most recent appearance is no different.

The Duchess of Cambridge brought some vintage elegance to her look on her latest engagement, as she stepped out in a bold paisley blouse while attending in an exhibition of Fabergé eggs in London.

Kate visited the V&A Museum in London to view the new exhibition, Fabergé in London: Romance to Revolution, where a number of the artist's famously intricate Imperial Easter Eggs were on display.

Kate studied art history at university and is royal patron of the V&A, so no doubt it was a special engagement for her. With that in mind, she certainly dressed for the event, pulling out a dazzling patterned blouse by Ralph Lauren.

Featuring a classic paisley print in swirling reds, blues and greens, the blouse was a pussy bow style, one favoured by the Duchess, which was tied loosely at the neck. Voluminous sleeves added to the drama, while the delicate georgette material created a feminine, floaty silhouette.

Kate wore it tucked into a pair of simple black tailored trousers, and cinched with a black leather crocodile belt. She added a pair of double-hoop earrings featuring a delicate twist motif, which brought just the right amount of sparkle to her look.

She wore her hair curled into bouncy waves and scoped back into a high and voluminous ponytail, a fresh and modern look for the Duchess who typically opts for a classic curly blowdry. Her makeup looked like it had gotten an update too, as Kate debuted bolder, more filled out brows which are bang on trend for winter.

She added a subtle smoked-out wing which made her eyes pop, as well as gentle contouring around her forehead and cheeks and a final swirl of rich rosy blush.
