With the Royal Trip to East Asia fully under way, Kate Middleton has stepped out for day two, in three unsurprisingly stunning outfits. Beginning this morning (or last night for us on this side of the world), Will and Kate (Okay, Prince William and Catherine Duchess of Cambridge on this official occasion) were treated to a tour of Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay. Lauded as one of the country’s most beautiful parks, this place seriously wows (One Google search reveals such stunning flora and fauna that it rivals Kate Middleton herself…almost).
Kate seemed perfectly ventilated for the presumably steamy temps with the debut of a white cotton broderie anglaise skirt suit by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen. Belted and slightly peplum-ed at the waist, the bodice revealed a fitted slight corset detail, with a full skirt underneath. To accessorize, Kate Middleton relied on her trusty Stuart Weitzman cork wedged (the shoes were spotted on the Duchess throughout the course of the London Olympics), her Stuart Weitzman navy Muse clutch and her favoured passed-down pair sapphire and diamond earrings once belonging to Princess Diana. Kate re-appeared on visit to a Rolls Royce factory in the same outfit, but it wasn’t for long…
Later (earlier) today, the couple visited Strathmore Green in Queenstown (the Queen in the title would be Queen Elizabeth II). There were traditional dance performers, there was a little girl with a pocket of posies, and there was, of course, another outfit. This time, Kate Middleton was wearing the Singaporean designer Raoul. The off-white flow-y “Tara” top and pleated skirt both feature tight red and black geometric chevron prints. While the name is new to us, the label has been spotted on celebs like Elle MacPherson and Helen Mirren and a quick retail search for both items showed us that they are already sold out. Another slam-dunk for Kate-lookalikes. As for the accessories, the shoes were another trusty choice: Kate’s L.K Bennett sledge pumps. The simple pearl drop earrings were by Annoushka.
And finally, for tonight’s reception at Eden Hall, Kate Middleton appeared in a third stunning flow-y number: a white hand painted floral dress from Erdem’s Spring 2012 collection. Though the dress appeared on the runway as a sleeveless style, it’s been modified with added sleeves for Kate Middleton (the Duchess can’t be crass!). Alongside Prince William, who may we add looks quite dapper in a bright blue suit, Kate toasted (WITH WATER!), signed a guest book and waved to fans. The L.K. Bennet “Sledge” pumps reappeared in off-white.
