Kate Middleton, Joanne Froggatt and Bob rock winter fashion on the red carpet

The Duchess of Cambridge proved herself a friend of the felines as she hit the red carpet on Thursday night for the world premiere of heartfelt film, A Street Cat Named Bob.

Meeting the star of the show, Bob himself, she made him purr with a gentle stroke as she chatted to his owner, James Bowen.

But it was hard to tell who was turning the most heads at the event at central London’s Curzon Mayfair cinema.

Was it Kate Middleton in a stunning white Self Portrait gown…

…Or was it the handsome ginger bombshell himself, especially brushed for the occasion?

Downton Abbey’s Joanne Froggatt, who plays Val in the film, rocked a gorgeous deep red gown by Maria Lucia Hohan.

Once a homeless busker, the story’s writer James Bowen looked super elegant in navy, with matching tie and handkerchief.

Stars of the film Luke Treadaway and Ruta Gedmintas made the perfect pair in contrasting dark suit and white dress.

Their co-star Anthony Head looking classy. Because he always does.

Director Roger Spottiswoode emblazoned his blue suit with a poppy.

Penny Dreadful star Harry Treadaway comes out to support his brother.

Already a contender for the nation’s favourite Christmas film this year, A Street Cat Named Bob is released in UK cinemas on Friday.
