PICTURE THIS:  The Duchess of Cambridge sported a vibrant blue Stella McCartney crepe dress Thursday when she visited London’s National Portrait Gallery to see a photo exhibition of athletes and individuals involved with the London Olympics.

Her fashion choice was an appropriate one, given that McCartney has created the uniforms for Britain’s Olympic and Paralympic teams. The duchess is both a patron of the National Portrait Gallery and an ambassador for Team GB and Paralympics GB.

The show, titled “Road to 2012: Aiming High,” showcases images of Olympic and Paralympic athletes, including tae kwon do athlete Jade Jones and sprint swimmer Fran Halsall, to shots of London Mayor Boris Johnson and chefs who will work in the athletes’ village dining hall at the Olympics. The exhibition runs through Sept. 23.
