The duchess' gown, a teal, pleated floor-length number with sheer lace at the shoulders and back, is by Jenny Packham, according to the Daily Mail. Her hair was styled in a braided chignon.

The black-tie event, called "Our Greatest Team Rises - BOA Olympic Concert," was held at London's Royal Albert Hall to mark the final countdown to the London 2012 games and raise funds to support Great Britain's team.

William, Kate and Prince Harry were named ambassadors for Britain's Olympic and Paralympic teams earlier this year. In March, the Duchess of Cambridge paid a visit to Britain's women's Olympic field hockey team during their training, and even showed off some of her own field hockey skills.
