Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, Day One of Far East Trip

On day one of their trip to the Far East, representing the Queen during her Golden Jubilee year, Prince William and Catherine arrived in Singapore. Their first stop was at the National Botanical Gardens, where they were presented with a species of orchid named after them. They were shown the "Vanda William Catherine" hybrid orchid, whose white petals with purple spots matched Kate's pale pink kimono-style Jenny Packham dress.

It's a pretty dress, a little too pale and washed out for Kate's strong coloring, and maybe a touch wide in the shoulders, making for a slightly boxy effect uptop. But I don't mind it, and I do like the pearl drop earrings. The shoes bore the heck out of me. I think she could have chosen something a little more daring than these LK Bennetts, which seem a bit on the heavy side. (Photos Courtesy Getty)
