Arrival at Changi Airport Singapore and straight to the Botanical Gardens in a pink coloured Jenny Packham dress with Orchid prints. Paired with LK Bennett shoes – sledge off-white, carrying a cream coloured clutch and wearring her diamond pearl drops by Annoushka. I love, love the dress but I think the v-shaped neckline is a bit too low for these events when she has to bend down to shake hands with people…

Kate’s wearing a cream and lilac Rorschach floral patterned wool-silk dress by Singaporean-born designer Prabul Gurung. Paired with Anya Hindmarch Bespoke Navy Maud Clutch, navy Prada satin pumps and wearing a diamond cluster bracelet.

Thoughts: While I love, love the Jenny Peckham dress that Kate arrived in, I think the deep v-neckline is a little too deep especially when she has to bend over to shake hands or sign a guest book. While I love her Prabul Gurung dress, I think it is much too simple for a State Dinner too. What are your thoughts on dresses?
