Malaysia: Simplicity , elegance and grace in white
When Kate Middleton wore the gleaming white gown by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen for the Malaysian Head of State's official dinner, the usual awe of style experts followed after. The gold Hibiscus floral prints on the outer layer of the dress showed a lovely tribute for the country's national flower, and the Duchess bloomed in such beauty.
William and Kate's duties in the royal tour continued outside a mosque, where the Duchess was seen wearing a Beulah London "Sabitri" dress. The said dress, used to be Lady Natasha Rufus Isaacs', a close friend of the Duke. To observe customs inside the mosque, the Duchess took off her beloved LK Bennett pumps and carried it around. Not only does Kate know how to care for her favorite items, but she's absolutely cool about wearing hand-me-downs.
The string of elegance continued at a tea party held in Kuala Lumpur when the Duchess wore a laced Alice Temperley dress, which she also paired with her trusty beige LK Bennett "Sledge" pumps. This is when the heat of the topless photo scandal fired up the internet and press, but Middleton remained calm, collected, and impervious to ridicule.
