Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Lela Rose - Governor General Peter Cosgrove Reception

Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge arrived with Governor-General Peter Cosgrove and Lady Cosgrove to a reception at Government House on Thursday (April 24) in Canberra, Australia.

Wearing her second look of the day, the Duchess looked delightful wearing a Lela Rose Spring 2013 dress.

This frock is the epitome of modern elegance, exuding sophistication with its delicate macramé lace at the peplum and the short sleeves.

Sadly, I’m not a fan of the accessories – especially the shoes, along with the bracelet, the watch and the clutch – with this look, which is such as shame because I adore the dress.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Catherine Walker - Portrait Gallery Visit

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge attended a reception at Parliament House and visited the Portrait Gallery on Thursday (April 24) in Canberra, Australia.

The Duchess opted for a coat dress again, this time from British designer Catherine Walker.

Her beautiful emerald-green belted piece, which appears to be a bespoke version of two looks which appear on Catherine Walker’s website, was of course styled with her favourite nude L.K. Bennett ‘Sledge’ pumps along with some complementary emerald earrings.

I know many of you have been totally unimpressed with Catherine during this tour. There have been a lot of coat dresses, so how does this one fare?

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen - Playford Civic Centre

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge paid a visit to the Playford Civic Centre in the Adelaide suburb of Elizabeth on Wednesday (April 23) in Adelaide, Australia.

The Duchess wore an Alexander McQueen look again, this time wearing a soft-pink V-neck long-sleeved peplum top with a matching swing skirt.

She accessorized her look with L.K. Bennett ‘Sledge’ pumps, her equal favourite L.K. Bennett ‘Natalie’ clutch, Annoushka pearls, a gold chain with Asprey charms and Kiki McDonough pearl drop earrings.

What do you think of this refined take on the label’s avant-garde aesthetic?

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Hobbs - Uluru

Following her Roksanda Ilincic look earlier in the day, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge changed for a romantic stroll around the base of Uluru with Prince William, Duke of Cambridge on Tuesday (April 22) in Ayers Rock, Australia.

The Duchess recycled her Hobbs fit-and-flare ’50s-inspired grey and white dress, styling it with a white woven belt, espadrille wedges and the beaded necklace she was presented with while walking around the base.

I know many of you are so very bored with her looks, but despite their repetitiveness they have at least been event appropriate, and this is a perfect example.

If you are waiting for her to wow you, I would advise that you don’t hold your breath.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Roksanda Ilincic - Ayers Rock

Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge went to the outback, where they were presented with a spear during a visit to an indigenous training academy on Tuesday (April 22) in Ayers Rock, Australia.

Opting for a sandy taupe-coloured look (which colour co-ordinates with the Prince), the Duchess wore another Roksanda Ilincic frock.

This time she selected a loose-fitting cap-sleeved dress that was cinched in at the waist with a contrasting belt and styled with nude L.K. Bennett pumps.

The look is somewhat of a re-run, as Catherine wore the same dress in a much lighter hue to the UK’s Creative Industries Reception back in July, 2012 and at LAX back in July, 2011.
