Kate Wears Erdem to British Gala at Eden Hall

 

After a whirlwind day and a third outfit change, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge wrapped up day two and attended a British Gala at Singapore’s Eden Hall.

 
 
 
Their first stop was to sign the guest book.
 
 
 
 
Then they met with paralympic athletes and stayed for a seven course Chinese dinner in the Banquet Hall. Deciding to forgo the wine, the Duke and Duchess made toasts to the Queen twice with water.
 
 
 
 
Kate wore a white and blue floral print dress by Erdem (£895). It was a modified version from Erdem’s Spring/ Summer 2012 collection. The frock featured a pleated skirt, exposed back and loose-fitting sleeves.

Accessories included light taupe LK Bennett Harper suede heels with a concealed platform and 4 1/2″ heel height (£195). Kate also held a matching satin clutch that we’ve not previously seen and yet to be ID’d.
 
 
 
 

Kate Makes a Solo Appearance at the Royal Academy of Arts Reception

Last night Kate made a solo appearance at the arts institution in central London for a reception celebrating the best of British music, film, art and entertainment. The event was hosted by the Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt MP.

She walked the red carpet and was greeted by Prime Minister David Cameron.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore an elegant dove grey dress by Serbian born designer Roksanda Ilincic.

We first saw this outfit, which has an unusual slashed neckline, when she arrived in LA last year on her inaugural royal tour.

Roksanda Ilincic still has the dress available but you won’t find it at their boutiques. You need to contact them via email. They are selling it in the US for $1300.

However the dress is still available at stores in a peridot color. This is described as a petrol blue wool crepe.
