What Kate Wore in Singapore. 11 to 13 Sept 2012

First, Kate wore a white Alexander McQueen broderie anglaise suit while touring the city-state's Gardens in the Bay

Next, Kate changed into an ensemble from Singaporean designer Raoul. In a tara blouse and full pleat skirt from Raoul's pre-fall 2012 collection, Kate arrived with William at the Queenstown housing project 

 Later at a reception at the official residence of the U.K.'s High Commissioner to Singapore, Kate wore a blue and white chiffon Erdem dress with an exposed back and loose-fitting sleeves.

Her first outfit for the day: Alexander McQueen
Kate’s white McQueen suit was done in a broderie anglaise fabric, a material with cutout designs and embroidery around those cutouts.
The suit showcased a fitted top with cuffed short sleeves, a deep vee neck, and self belt.

The Duchess brought back the Stuart Weitzman Corkswoon wedges worn so frequently during the Olympics and Paralympics, from Russell & Bromley.

 Kate carried her navy suede Muse clutch again (also from Russell & Bromley), she also wore her diamond sapphire cluster earrings.

Then she changed out of her McQueen suit into separates by Singapore’s Raoul.

Raoul is a label we predicted/hoped Kate would wear, it embodies so many design elements she favors: clean, classic lines, minimal “frou-frou” or distractions, timeless styles. Kate wore pieces made exclusively for Matches Fashion, the silk “Tara” top and matching skirt.

The top sold for $221, it is described this way:
“a red and black cube heart print is reminiscent of vintage 70s styling…”
The skirt was $300, here is that description:
“…ivory silk print pleated skirt by Raoul puts a retro-cool slant on ladylike new-season dressing. This ivory silk knee-length pleated skirt has a mid-rise, a red and black cube print and a black waistband with a hidden side zip fastening

As one would expect, both pieces are now sold out and unavailable.!!!!!

The brand is a good one for Kate, this is a simple, refined look that worked well for the afternoon events

She wore  LK Bennett Sledges, and  the Annoushka pearl drop earrings

Kate and William returned to their hotel before heading out for tonight’s reception at Eden Hall, the British High Commissioner’s residence. Kate changed again, this time donning Erdem, a modified version of a piece from the designer’s spring collection.

A chiffon Erdem outift as blue and white with red detail, Oriental styling… a pleated skirt, exposed back and loose-fitting sleeves.

The bodice is lined, and sheer, flyaway sleeves have been added in deference to local custom and protocol.

The Duchess also carried a grey clutch .

 She is also wearing four-inch beige ( nude?)  suede heels, the LK Bennett Harper in light taupe
The shoe has a concealed platform, its heel height is almost 4-1/2″, it retails at £195, about $315 at today’s exchange rates.

THE  Duchess chose a Singapore-born designer, Prabal Gurung, again showing respect for the host country on this first leg of the Jubilee Tour.

He offers an edgier look than many of the designers and retailers Kate generally wears, this was a bit of a risk for the Duchess. Mr. Gurung was more-than-excited upon learning Kate was wearing a frock from his collection.

Kate carried  her black Anya Hindmarch Maud Clutch ( £450, approximately $720 USD at today’s exchange rates).

 Jimmy Choo’s Cosma Disco Bar Clutch, this links to that bag in a different color/decor.
The bespoke frock also has three-quarter sleeves, a self-belt, deep vee neckline and full skirt. Here we see the dress from the back.
 Kate accessorized with what looks like a new pair of LK Bennett’s Sledge pumps in the Off White color.
Kate selected a British designer for the launch of the Jubilee Tour in Singapore, wearing a pale pink Jenny Packham dress. Here we see the Duke and Duchess being greeted upon arrival at the airport.

 Kate chose another bespoke piece by Jenny Packham for this morning’s solemn visit to the Kranji War Memorial. Below we see William and Kate as they leave their hotel to go to the Memorial.
Kate’s dress featured a button front bodice, lace overlay on the bodice and sleeves, three quarter sleeves, and full, pleated skirt.

Kate wore her LK Bennett Sledge2 pumps, she did not carry a purse.

It was the couple’s last engagement in Singapore, they boarded a plane for the short flight to Malaysia. This afternoon Kate gives her first public speech outside
