Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Whistles – Reception To Mark Launch Of Tusk’s US Patrons Circle

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William attended a reception to mark the Launch of Tusk Trust’s US Patron’s Circle in Santa Barbara, California yesterday which was the last day of their North American Tour.

The Duchess reverted back to her favourite safe colours of navy and white.

A navy and white Whistles crochet top was paired with a Whistles white pleated skirt.

Her favourite navy Prada pumps completed her look.

Fashion-wise many will consider this a successful tour for Catherine, but the only thing I will remember is her buttercup Jenny Packham dress and her red Lock and Co maple leaf fascinator.

Everything else blurred into one.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen – BAFTA Brits To Watch Event

DeJa Vu Award
When I saw Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge arrive on the red carpet at the BAFTA Brits To Watch Event, which was held at the Belasco Theatre in LA yesterday evening, I instantly had a touch of deja vu.

Catherine’s Alexander McQueen gown instantly reminded me of the Georges Hobeika gown Fan Bing Bing had worn earlier this year.

Mostly because of the colour, the pleats and the waistband.

The Duchess teamed her McQueen gown with a silver Jimmy Choo Vamp glitter-finish sandals and a Jimmy Choo clutch, proving she does have a wider choice of accessories in her suitcase.

Catherine looks beautiful, but I’m still waiting for her to wow me during this tour.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Jenny Packham – The Foundation Polo Challenge

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge cheered on her husband Prince William, as he participated in The Foundation Polo Challenge, which was held at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club in California yesterday afternoon.

She looked delightful wearing a Jenny Packham Spring 2011 summery dress.

Her silver marble grey hand painted chinoiserie silk dress was styled with her favourite L.K Bennett Natalie clutch and nude L.K. Bennett sandals which have their first outing during this tour.

I do love this look, but it would’ve benefited from some sort of belt or waistband, as showcased by the model.

I’m not sure what’s changed, but her since she touched down in LA her looks have vastly improved.

Jenny Packham is proving to be a great brand fit.

Hopefully this association will continue.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Diane von Furstenberg – British Consul-General Private Reception

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William were the guests of honor at a private reception held at the British Consul-General’s residence in LA on Friday evening.

Still wearing the same nude pumps, Catherine changed into a Diane von Furstenberg ‘Maja’ green silk dress.

An exotic Diane von Furstenberg Lytton snakeskin clutch added a remarkable contrast to her look.

This is a great colour for the Duchess; I hope we see more colourful looks from her as I’m on navy, beige, grey overload.

Something tells me this won’t be the last DVF dress we see from Catherine on this tour.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Roksanda Ilincic – LAX International Airport

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William made their way down south to the US on Friday evening.

They received a warm welcome as their plane landed at LAX Airport – where they were greeted by a procession before making a start on their busy schedule.

Catherine wore a dove grey dress by London-based designer Roksanda Ilincic.

The Spring 2011 ‘Peridot’ dress with pleats from drape neckline to waistband has been modified from the runway.

Catherine’s dress is pleated on the skirt compared to the puffy peplum on the runway.

This is the commercial version, so it wasn’t created especially for her.

She wore nude pumps again, but these aren’t the same pumps as on this occasion she opted for Jimmy Choo ‘Lovely’ pumps.

A L.K Bennett Natalie clutch completed her look.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Catherine Walker – ENMAX Conservatory, Calgary Zoo

Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge visited the ENMAX Conservatory, Calgary Zoo on day 9 of the Royal couple’s tour of North America in Calgary, Canada today.

Sporting a half-up-half down new hairstyle with tumbling waves, Catherine wore a Catherine Walker Marianne coat-dress with the Queen’s Maple Leaf brooch.

I love the way the coat nips her in at the waist before flaring out on the skirt.

We clearly haven’t seen the last of those nude L.K. Bennett pumps, as Catherine seems to favour them for most events.

I’m going to have to check out these pumps on Saturday, as they must be the most comfortable shoes in the world.

A nude clutch matched her nude pumps.
