Kate Middleton Wears Alice by Temperley Dress And A Grass Skirt For Tribal Dance

18 September 2012 by

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are on the final leg of their royal tour and they've just landed on the remote island cluster of Tuvalu. Demonstrating how willing they are to adapt to local customs the couple gamely donned grass skirts in order to take part in a tribal dance. Kate also wore a headpiece of flowers as she got stuck into the moves of the cultural performance which is known as Fatele.

Following the exertion William and Kate were then invited to sit on heart-shaped thrones and enjoy a celebratory meal of local delicacies. When Kate removed her grass skirt she revealed a stunning floor length dress. While we initially thought it might have been the work of a local designer the vintage inspired piece is actually by one of Kate's favourite designers, Alice Temperley. The Alice by Temperley creation features gold buttons and embroidery on the sleeves, waist the below the necklineand looked like it could be a designer relic from the 60s or 70s. Its definitely one of the more bohemian frocks we've seen Kate wear on her tour. Those who like Kate’s free-spirited look will be please to know that it’s also available in blue from Alice Temperely.
