I quite like the white dress. Its good to come out of the closet. I am a bit surprised with the neckline, her day outfits she has been very cautious to be modest in these traditional countries. I wouldn't bat an eye at the neckline back home, but seemed deep for India/Bhutan. I adore the necklace the queen gave her on parting.

The blue and white is probably her best day look. I haven't been overly fond of her attempt at Indian prints but this one really worked. I loved she used an Indian designer for this event. The color and style looks great on her.

Perhaps she chose the dress especially to show off the necklace?

I do think it's a good thing Kate wore a couple of items she'd worn before; critics can't say she splurged on an entirely new wardrobe.
 
:previous: Her outfits would have been planned out well in advance of the trip. Unless she was told beforehand she would receive such a gift, I think it a happy coincidence.
 
Love the blue and white Taj dress. It's perfect. Lower heels would have been better. But the dress is a big thumbs up! Takes inspiration from the region but in no way even touching on costume-y, as a couple of her outfits earlier have done.
Kinda wishing there was a big tiara event on this trip, but oh well.
 
Really not bothered about the white dress - neither liked it or disliked it. Love the dress for the Taj Mahal both style and colours. I do hope we see some of these outfits again in the UK.
 
I think Kate had done this trip she can't be accused of misappropriating Indian style.
 
I liked the effect of the white McQueen suit but wondered at the deep neckline in Bhutan. The style of the Taj Mahal dress is one that suits Catherine very well, as to the design, the jury is still out.

ps: I think it would have been appropriate for Catherine to wear a camisole with the white McQueen ensemble. Her bra was plainly visible right across her back through the Broderie Anglaise.

I love the dress she wore during the Taj Mahal visit! Beautiful!
 
She looked amazing in both dresses, especially her Naeem Khan dress, which matched the scene very well.
 
I was astounded that they did they taj shot. Good for them. Catherine looked so beautiful in the blue and white, looked well with William. Why does he wear brown shoes with the blue?

I would have been astounded if they didn't

He does that to irritate us. And it works. His posture seated on that bench is atrocious, BTW. ;)

A gentleman wears brown shoes at the weekend 😚
 
Kate wore mostly lovely dresses, but I think that the cobalt blue gown worn in Mumbai, as well as the last outift at the Taj Mahal are top contenders.
 
A poll has been planned and should be up soon. So stay tuned!

That's what British men do, that's our culture. Smart casual us always with brown shoes.
 
I haven't posted for a while but was inspired to check in by photos of the Taj Majal visit. I absolutely adored the Naeem Khan Resort dress. It almost seemed designed for a trip to the Taj Majal.

Catherine looks great, as usual. I didn't look like that after my second child, and I ran after them a lot.
