While William arrived in a traditional tuxedo and bow tie, Kate stunned in a re-worn gold embellished white gown by her wedding dress designer Alexander McQueen.
According to PEOPLE, the dress choice was part of a fashions guide by the London College of Fashion's Centre for Sustainability, that the attendees of the event "dress sustainable" by wearing items they either rented, have worn before or purchased from vintage stores.
Kate first wore the custom-made designer gown in 2012, during a state dinner in Malaysia during their jubilee tour.
Daily Mail reports, it was designed by Sarah Burton to pay homage to Malaysia; the gold embroidery resembles its national flower.

Kate re-created the look by adding a matching clutch by Anya Hindmarch, gold Jimmy Choo heels. Her make-up included a smokey eye, and a glossy pink lip.
She wore her up in an elegantly braided up-do to show off her dangling earrings and layered necklace from Van Cleef and Arpels, costing over $15 000.
William and Kate might have been hoping for an event free of any talk about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal exit. However, when Margot Robbie accepted Bard Pitt's award on his behalf, for the best-supporting actor. In the speech he had written she joked:
"I'm gonna name this Harry, 'cause (Brad) is really excited about bringing it back to the States with him. His words, not mine. Thanks!"
The couple didn't hold any hard feelings about the jab at the family and were shown laughing it off with the crowd.
At the ceremony, William also took the stage when he presented the highest award of the night to Film producer Kathleen Kennedy with the Fellowship award.
