Talk about a day-to-night transformation!

Kate Middleton made her first public appearance since announcing her pregnancy with her second child this afternoon, and now she's wowed for the second time in one day.

The Duchess of Cambridge arrived at the Natural History Museum in London this evening for the 2014 Wildlife Photograph Awards looking so lovely in a sky blue Jenny Packham wrap dress with nude peep-toe pumps. 

Aside from a simple clutch, she kept the rest of the accessories to a minimum and wore her hair down in soft curls. The three-quarter length wrap dress showed just a bit of a royal baby bump.

Kate never shies away from color—just one of the many things we adore about her style—and this particular shade of powder blue is so flattering, and gives her that perfect glow.

We'd say this is quite the successful return to the spotlight after being out of the public eye for a handful of weeks while suffering from Hyperemisis Gravidarum. Kate Middleton was forced to cancel several appearances due to severe morning sickness, but it's obvious that she is healthy and in high spirits.

By the looks of her two appearances today, the Duchess of Cambridge is recovering quite nicely—and looking as chic and polished as ever. While her light blue Jenny Packham dress was a perfect choice for an evening event, her afternoon ensemble was equally appropriate for the more conservative occasion.

Earlier today, Kate opted for a gray Alexander McQueen coat dress and a matching gray Jane Taylor hat as she and Prince William welcomed Singapore President Tony Tan Keng Yam at London's Royal Garden Hotel. 

Which of Kate's outfits do you prefer more: her afternoon coat dress and hat ensemble or her sky blue Jenny Packham dress? 

We're just glad that the Duchess is back to feeling healthy again and was able to wow at not only one—but two!—events today. Congrats to the expectant mother!
