On Thursday night, British monarchy and Hollywood royalty mingled on the red carpet for the charity premiere of Tom Cruise’s new film, “Top Gun: Maverick.”
When the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at Leicester Square in London ahead of the screening of the “Top Gun” sequel, which sees Cruise reprise his most famous role nearly four decades later, they were the ideal wingmen.
Kate looked stunning in a crepe column gown by Roland Mouret.
A pristine white off-the-shoulder band complemented the tailored black dress, and she completed the spectacular ensemble with a black purse and a set of Robert Pelham starry drop earrings. Prince William wore a classic blue velvet tuxedo to match his wife’s stylish ensemble and wore shoes embroidered with two planes to symbolise his love for aviation.

‘In terms of the royal stamp of approval, this doesn’t just count for the film business,’ Jennifer Hodgson, another PR boss, told MailOnline.’Having this is critical for everything from campaigns to brands to everything in between.’ Every day, we witness this in fashion: the Duchess of Cambridge wears a dress, which sells out the same day.’Brands then use this as a selling tool to gain more publicity and marketing possibilities, as well as to improve brand credibility and consumer trust.’
