Danielle Lineker was a serious style competitor for Kate Middleton when she attended an event last night.

The model and wife of former football Gary Lineker attended the event at Claridge’s Hotel in London, where she dressed in a stunning pale blue Grecian gown.

To complement the gorgeous colour of her dress, Danielle added some chic jewellery, with a huge gold cuff on her left wrist with a large stone laid into it.

She added a pair of dangling gold earrings that were partially hidden by her sweeping retro hairstyle.

Danielle added a touch of fun to her outfit by carrying a clutch bag that was made to look like a copy of the Tennessee Williams play Cat on a Hot Tin Roof in its original first edition binding.

Perhaps Danielle Lineker felt she needed to dress up for the occasion as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were also attending the monthly meal hosted by the Thirty Club, which is made up of some of the most powerful people in the media and advertising sectors.
