Kate Middleton Steps Out In A White And Gold Alexander McQueen Dress On Asia Tour

13 September 2012 by

Following her first overseas speech in Malaysia today where she wore a Jenny Packham dress the Duchess of Cambridge has arrived at an evening event wearing a floor length Alexander McQueen gown. This is the most regal we’ve seen Kate look on her tour of Asia so far, where she’s already worn pieces by Singapore-born designers including Prabal Gurung and Raoul. The reception is being held at Istana Palace in Kuala Lumpur where the royal couple have been greeted by and posed for photos with officials.

Kate Middleton Steps Out In A White And Gold Alexander McQueen Dress On The Third Day Of Her Tour Of Asia

Kate's jewellery, including earrings and a bracelet, are from her own private collection, but it's the intricate detailing on the DoC's dress which we're most interested in. The gold embroidery features the national flower of Malaysia, the Hibiscus. Yep, another politically correct move. She wore her hair pulled back from her face completing the fairy tale princess transformation.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have had six engagements since the begining of their tour, including Kate's speech earlier today. Although the DoC kept her cool during the event she is said to have joked this evening that she was very nervous about speaking in public. She told guests 'I am very glad that is over with'.
