Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Island Print – Governor General Dinner

Following the welcoming ceremony to the Solomon Islands, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a traditional island feast, hosted by the Governor-General and his wife.

It has been reported that Catherine had planned another outfit for this feast, but that she opted to wear an original Solomon dress for the occasion which was presented to her upon arrival.

The vibrant pink-and-orange batik-print strapless dress from a local shop called Island Print was styled with Stuart Weitzman Minx wedges and a gold bracelet.

This is my second favourite look after the Prabal Gurung dress.

I’m hoping this tour will open Catherine’s eyes to wearing more colour in the future.

    New shoes, yay! She looks great with an effortless styling, I love it.

      She’s actually worn these shoes before, to a polo match with a greenish dress.

    She looks great, the Islanders know how to dress her.
    Love the other lady’s dress with the print and the beads

    New shoes … I’m shocked O_O

    Pretty! A dress that she couldn’t pair with her beloved shoes ;)

    im getting really sick of this hair and make up =/

    this beachy/flowy dress called for a lower heel. the hair is getting ridiculous as well, she needs to chop at least 3 inches off of it.

    So grateful isn’t wearing those pumps. Glad she is wearing more color and prints. This is lovely.

    This was my favourite look from this Tour.

    They have tone the ugliest pair of shoes I have ever seen

  10. Susan September 17, 2012 at 17:25 #

    Love the dress.

  11. Sarah September 17, 2012 at 18:10 #

    I’d actually venture to say this is one of her best ever looks… I think it’s beautiful!

    Really nice, I like it on her more than Prabal Gurung.

  13. Amy September 17, 2012 at 19:43 #

    color and prints do wonders for her. I don’t why she’s so afraid to wear them.

    Love this look. The only that could have made it more perfect is if she’d worn her hair up. Also, although these sandals are a welcome change, I agree with the comment about wearing a lower heal. It would be nice to see her in a flat sandal sometime. She’s so tall and slim, she certainly doesn’t have to wear heals ALL the time (especially in a more casual setting).

    She looks gorgeous!!!! Finally I’m saying this!!! This dress looks amazing on her! I also like her wedges. I just wish she could take some makeup lessons.

  16. Dhppy September 17, 2012 at 21:52 #

    What? Bold colors? Print? And she loooks happier than ever. What is happening?

    • Dhppy September 17, 2012 at 21:55 #

      Oh, and strapless, too. Who is this?

    “I’m hoping this tour will open Catherine’s eyes to wearing more colour in the future.”

    I hope so too.

    Beautiful dress, beautiful Kate! William, on the other hand, looked like her uncle. Men should stay away from Hawaii shirts and golf tees – both are loose, shapeless tops that age a man.

    Gorgeous!

  20. bee7 September 18, 2012 at 07:15 #

    Nice dress but I’m so over her pageant queen hairstyle

  21. Jaimie September 18, 2012 at 11:07 #

    The designer of this and Prince Williams outfit is called TAV its a Cook Island clothing label not from the Solomon Islands.

  22. EmmaWoodhouse September 18, 2012 at 13:07 #

    So pretty! Love the print! She looks relaxed and great. Grateful for new shoes! :)

  23. Director September 18, 2012 at 18:55 #

    this is not perfect. this is not stylish. this is “I don’t really care, I was just feeling like wearing a relaxed bright comfortable dress, so there”. and she looks great! it gives that therapeutic laid-back vibe all of us, stuck-up workaholics, so desperately need.

  24. Noemi September 18, 2012 at 21:17 #

    Wow, she wears colors… this is more a scoop than the topless photos! :-)
