On arrival at Ottawa, Canada, the Duchess disembarked the plane in a dress by Erdem Moralioglu. The dress was a navy, lace Cecile shift scoop-backed dress of contrast stone crepe with a navy lace overlay. The dress also had a sheer lace sleeve with a scallop detail.

She accessorized her dress with cream LK Bennett pumps (£175) and a matching rectangular nude snakeprint clutch. She’s wearing Tiffany Diamond by the Yard bracelet and a diamond and lapis drop earrings.

Thoughts: While I understand the diplomatic significance of wearing the Erdem dress on her arrival in Canada I personally felt its a little too formal/fancy for day wear. While critics did not like her navy Roland Mouret outfit or her Issa dress,  in my opinion the Issa dress was perfect for a barbecue which is a casual event! Her inflight outfit is genius for travelling – no one’s going to be able to see the creases and its a smart look.
