Kicking off her royal tour in high style, the attends a dinner in Singapore wearing a violet digital-print dress by local-born designer Prabal Gurung.
FLOATY & FLIRTY
ANOTHER WHITE MCQUEEN
Returning to one of her favorite formalwear labels, Alexander McQueen, for an official state dinner in Kuala Lumpur, the Duchess gives a nod to local attire in a gown with flowing sleeves and a hibiscus print.
Again beating the heat in a lightweight, sheer-sleeve dress and a pretty updo, Kate visits Kuala Lumpur’s British High Commission in an ice-blue Temperley London dress and her standby L.K. Bennett pumps.
What does a Duchess wear to climb trees in the rainforest of Borneo? A navy button-up, fitted khakis, a brown belt and rugged hiking boots, natch! Apparently Prince William (not pictured) liked the look because he wore a very similar outfit.
PAGING JACKIE O
In her mod-print, short-sleeve Jonathan Saunders sheath, pillbox hat and perfectly coordinated accessories, Kate channels American royalty as she disembarks in the Solomon Islands.
Though the Duchess has racks of designer duds at her disposal, one of our favorite looks from her trip didn’t come from any runway. It was a surprise gift from a local Solomon Islands shop. She pairs the dress with summery Stuart Weitzman wedges and pretty curls.
For Day 7 of her tour (also in the Solomon Islands), Kate glows in a yellow belted shirtdress and nude heels, plus enviably shiny hair. (Whatever product she’s using to fight frizz, it’s working!)
FLOWERS IN HER HAIR
In another enviable yellow number – plus her Stuart Weitzman “Minx” wedges and accessories courtesy of the Tuvalu locals – the Duchess is all smiles next to her equally well-accessorized .
MOVES WITH SWAGGER
Her embroidered Alice by Temperley maxi dress is the perfect complement to the grass skirt and headdress Kate wears to show off her dance moves during a celebration in the royal couple’s honor in Tuvalu.
