Close-range photos of a mysterious line on Kate’s scalp emerged after the event, spurring rumors that the typically low-maintenance duchess was wearing hair extensions. However, the Mirror is reporting the line is a scar from a childhood injury, citing palace sources.

Kate looked striking in the floor-length dress with beaded-strap detailing. The empire waist is slightly different from other formal looks we’ve seen the duchess in, however the silhouette is flattering on her lean figure and may become a new favorite.

More photos after the jump.
