What Kate wore in Kuala Lumpur 13 - 16Sept 2012

  • William and Kate leave Singapore, boarding a scheduled flight to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where they will be met at the International airport
  • The pair’s first engagement is a lunch hosted by the Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Najib Tun Razak at Seri Perdana, his official residence. The lunch will include a musical performance by young people
  • Following lunch Kate and William visit Hospis Malaysia, this is where the Duchess will give a short speech to patients and staff, “drawing on her own growing experience of the hospice movement in the United Kingdom.”
  • Thursday evening the Duke & Duchess attend an official dinner given by His Majesty The Agong at his official residence, the Istana Negara
Following the tea Kate and William headed to the airport for their flight to Sabah.
Kate wore khaki pants, a deep green shirt and hiking boots by Scarpa
Her blouse is  a 2010 Zara piece.
  Kate had her Le Pliage in the helicopter. You can just about see it in the upper right photo in the montage below, just the top of it by her leg and hiking boot.

What she wore for at the HOSPICE was the same outfit that she had one while at the Kranji War Memorial in Singapore  the same morning.l
 Following yesterday’s very busy morning and early afternoon, Kate changed to an exquisite dress by Alice Temperley for tea at the British High Commissioner’s residence in Kuala Lumpur.

 The frock is from the designer’s fall 2012 collection. In addition to the elegant embroidery it features a boat neckline, flared skirt and three quarter sheer sleeves.

The dress remains available (in one size only) at Harrods, priced at £1550 (about $2500 USD).
The Duchess stuck with her LK Bennett Sledge pumps and carry the Natalie bag. Kate styled her hair in another updo.

Beulah London Sabitri Dress
The Sabitri is £895, approximately $1450 at today’s exchange rates

Clearly time and thought went into creating the dress, it was a very good choice for the occasion.
 Kate’s dress is now available on the Beulah website. It is called the Sabitri
 vertical pleating radiating downward from the waistline, the gathering and darting at the waist and bust.
 Kate accessorized with the earrings we have seen earlier this week, as well as her LK Bennett Natalie clutch and the oft-worn Sledge2 pumps.

 As the Jubilee Tour continues, Kate and William’s first full day day in Kuala Lumpur began with a visit to As-syakirin Mosque.
 For today’s events Kate returned to another label she likes, Beulah London. It provided a refined silhouette while also offering proper coverage, yet it retained a distinctly feminine look that was very pretty on the Duchess and the soft hue enhanced her coloring perfectly.

Kate had her head covered in observance of Islamic religious law. (For anyone questioning the lack of toenail polish, it is inappropriate, Muslim women cannot pray if wearing it.)

Kate Wows in Custom Alexander McQueen Gown

Kate continues to return to favored designers for important occasions, tonight she wore a custom Alexander McQueen gown by Sarah Burton for the State Dinner in Malaysia. The function was hosted by His Majesty The Agong. Below we show William and Kate heading in to dinner.

The gala was at His Majesty’s official residence, the Istana Negara; here we see Kate with the Queen and other guests.
The bespoke creation was a jaw-dropper, but there was more to it than meets the eye. As is customary for Kate, the piece showcased an homage to her host country: that glittering gold embroidery is a hibiscus, the official flower of Malaysia.

 ate wore her hair partially pulled back and up, a very pretty look.
 The jewelry is by Catherine Zoraida

  Kate wore the Scale Bracelet and Double Leaf Earrings

 The clutch carried by Kate tonight is one seen previously, the gold Wilbur and Gussie bag seen on previous occasions
