Kate Looks Elegant in Prabal Gurung at Singapore Presidential Palace

 

After freshening up at their hotel, the couple headed off to the official residence of the President of the Republic of Singapore, The Istana where they attended a state dinner hosted by president Tony Tan and his wife Mary.

 
Kate wore an eye-catching, yet elegant electric purple print dress which is a modified version of a catwalk look from Singaporean-born designer, Prabal Gurung’s spring 2012 collection (currently on sale for £710, originally £1,770).
 
 
 
 
 
The printed silk-wool blend dress features three-quarter length sleeves and a bateau neckline. STYLEmetv.com describes the sheath dress as:
 
‘Largely purple and cream Rorschach floral printed wool-silk dress from Prabal Gurung . Bateau neck. V-back leads into a concealed zip. Three-quarter-length sleeves. Four front and two rear darts for shaping. Single vent. Full silk lining. Specialist dry clean only.
Prabal Gurung doesn’t just settle for the charming nature of floral print, preferring to experiment with a more abstract Rorschach approach.

Body: 53% wool, 47% silk Lining: 100% silk Made in the USA’

 
 
 

 
 
The Duchess of Cambridge accessorized with items we’ve seen previously. She wore her black satin Prada heels, her bespoke Anya Hindmarch Maud Clutch (£450) in black satin (now renamed to ‘Jubilee Bespoke Maud in Black Satin’) and a diamond bracelet that she’d been given as a wedding present (we first saw this at the BAFTA Gala in Los Angeles last year).

Additional Info on Prabal Gurang
 
 
Prabal Gurung was born in Singapore and raised in Nepal. He launched his label in New York in 2009 and has since become a A-list favorite. Stars that have worn his designs include Amanda Seyfried, Mila Kunis, Rooney Mara, Jessica Chastain, and of course Michelle Obama.

Kate Recycles Whistles to London Olympics Closing Ceremony

The Duchess of Cambridge attended the closing ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics with Prince Harry. William had to get back to work as a search and rescue pilot

Kate and Harry seemed to be having a great time as they danced the night away to the likes of the Spice Girls and George Michael.
She recycled a pretty blue, black, and white print dress from UK High Street store Whistles. It’s the silk ‘Bella’ dress (£150) which Kate wore a few weeks back during the Queen’s Jubilee Concert.
The last time Kate wore the dress she had an Alexander McQueen blazer over the top but this time she left the jacket at home and instead added a slim black belt.

Completing her look, The Duchess carried her black Anya Hindmarch ‘Maud’ Clutch and wore her Kiki McDonough Blue Topaz and Diamond Earrings.

Kate Takes 150 Kids to the Theatre

While Prince William sat in front of the television watching football, Kate took 150 children from The Art Room Charity to see a production of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe in Kensington Gardens.

The children who accompanied her were from six schools in London and Oxford.

The Art Room Charity helps children from disadvantaged or challenging backgrounds to express themselves and develop confidence through art.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore a teal Zara dress and a black Helena Cropped Blazer by Whistles ($195 and sold out).

She finished off her look with black Prada heels, her black, bespoke Anya Hindmarch ‘Maud’ clutch (£450), her Effervescence Bubble earrings by Links of London and a sparkly necklace that is yet to be ID’d.

Kate & William Attend the Carter – Gillingham Wedding

On Saturday, William and Kate were seen at the wedding of Hannah Gillingham and Robert Carter. It was held at St. Andrew’s Church in Wingfield, England.

Hannah was a childhood pal and attended Marlborough College with Kate. They played on several of the same sports teams.

Kate recycled her blue lace Erdem dress that she wore during her and William’s tour of Canada last Summer.

She chamged things up by accessorizing with a black and gold studded Alexander McQueen belt, a blue fascinator, blue Prada suede heels and her ‘Marano’ clutch by UK designer Anya Hindmarch.

Update 5/1/2012

Kate wore a navy, box-cut, cropped jacket over her Erdem dress. The general consensus right now (thanks to WKW) is that it’s a bespoke Erdem jacket based on the Erdem ‘Tegan’ tweed jacket ($1,266). I will be emailing Erdem for confirmation.

Update 6/11/2012

Thanks so much to follower Hannah Gladman who kindly shared that Kate’s hat is a bespoke Rachel Trevor-Morgan creation.
