We know it's a bit too early to say this but the holiday season is quickly approaching (it's already November!) and with that comes the inevitable parties which naturally require evening dresses.

No one is more aware of how busy one's social calendar can get during the holidays than new mom Kate Middleton.

The Duchess of Cambridge, who recently moved her family into Kensington Palace, will be hosting and attending some of high society's most exclusive events and as a result, she'll be wearing some pretty fancy formal wear. (We're hoping that she wears a winter white Alexander McQueen ballgown at some point.)

Prince George's mum isn't a novice at playing dress-up; just last week the brunette beauty attended the 100 Women In Hedge Funds Gala wearing a stunning black draped Jenny Packham gown and dazzled in a sequined gown at the Tusk Trust Gala in September.

Suffice to say that the busy Princess has a lot of practice going black tie for formal events.

So while we wait in anticipation for her first holiday soiree, we take a look back at Kate Middleton's best evening gowns:
