Just hours after giving birth, Kate looked gorgeous posing for photos outside St. Mary’s Hospital in London, holding her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge. The Duchess stunned women worldwide by simply looking stunning. "Extra" has all of Kate's picture-perfect secrets via Editor of HELLO! magazine Rosie Nixon, including the dress and the glam squad Kate hired to meet her at the hospital.
Kate's personal assistant, Natasha Archer, helped style the Duchess of Cambridge right down to the buttercup silk print Jenny Packham dress. Nixon told "Extra," Packham is one of Kate's favorite designers. The Duchess of Cambridge's shoes were L.K. Bennett nude pumps, and her perfectly coiffed 'do was courtesy of hair stylist Amanda Cook Tucker, who did a bedside blowout! When Tucker arrived at the Lindo Wing, this was the first clue that Kate would be posing for pics that afternoon. We hear Kate did her own makeup and manicure!
