Kate Middleton Hangs With Jackie Chan

Kate Middleton was a knockout for the second day in a row during the four-day state visit from Chinese President Xi Jinping and his wife Peng Liyuan's.

After wowing in a historic tiara at a state dinner on Tuesday, the 33-year-old royal rocked another perfect ensemble as she hit the town in an eggplant-colored Dolce & Gabbana Guipure lace shift dress with floral detailing and a pair of matching pumps. She wore her hair long and donned minimal makeup for the event at the Creative Collaborations: U.K. & China summit at Lancaster House in London, which was held in the Chinese president's honor.

Despite the dreary London weather, Middleton was the picture of perfection and was spotted smiling with the president and his wife, and one other big name -- Jackie Chan.

The martial arts star posed for pictures and was spotted getting chatty with Middleton. Not to worry, Prince William was also at the event and wore a dashing blue suit to match his leading lady's excellent style.

The President of the Peoples Republic of China and his wife arrived in the United Kingdom on Monday marking the first state visit by a Chinese president in 10 years.

Naturally, Kate has not disappointed with her fashion picks for the monumental occasion.
