Just like her bag collection and her wardrobe, Kate Middleton has given her shoe collection a luxe, high-fashion upgrade.

On Tuesday at a dinner hosted by The Thirty Club in London, the Duchess showed some leg in a chic ivory Roland Mouret dress with a thigh-high slit. While her attire was simple but stunning, her feet were decked out in glittered Jimmy Choo "Vamp" heels.

The platform sandals, which boast a 4.5-inch heel, retail for $750 -- a few hundred more than her conservative everyday shoes, $325 L.K. Bennett nude pumps.

Middleton, 30, first stepped out in the dazzling statement heels when she attended the BAFTAs in L.A. when she and Prince William were doing their North American tour in July. She wore the fancy footwear with a gorgeous lilac Alexander McQueen gown.
