Duchess Kate Dazzles In McQueen at Official Dinner

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended an official dinner given by His Majesty The Agong at his official residence, the Istana Negara, in Kuala Lumpur.



The Duke and Duchess signed a visitors book before entering the Istana Negara.




The couple chatted with guests and Kate admitted she was very nervous about today's speech 'I am very glad it's over with' she laughed. The Duchess of the opulent palace 'It's beautiful. those chandeliers are wonderful. It's amazing'. William said Kate was suffering from jet lag and jokingly revealed he would love to swim with whale sharks 




We have been waiting to see Kate wear a full length evening gown and while the Duchess didn't wear a tiara as hoped she certainly didn't disappoint in the style stakes.



The Duchess wore a bespoke long cream gown by Alexander McQueen. The stunning gown features an overleaf of sheer material with embroidered gold hibiscuses, the Malaysian flower. The dress has a sweetheart neckline, a full skirt and fitted bodice. What do you all think of the dress? Thus far there appears to be mixed reactions with many of the opinion the neckline was too low.




A look at the exquisite detailing on the dress.



The McQueen Pre Spring 2013 Collection features gold in many of their pieces. Below we look at the McQueen Silk Chiffon Bustier Dress a draped bustier dress with an internal bodice. It is quite similar to Kate's and available for €2,145 in green and €3,645 in black print.

Kate wore her hair half up half down.




Kate wore the £420 Spread Your Wings Bracelet and the £80 Double Leaf Earrings by Catherine Zoraida (With many thanks to the wonderful What Kate Wore) Kate carried her gold Wilbur and Gussie clutch bag.

After posing for a group photograph the couple received gifts. The Duchess was given a pair of black lace peep toe shoes and a glittering clutch bag by Malaysian designer Lewre the Malaysian equivalent of Jimmy Choo. Kate was also given a traditional Batik dress.

    1. I agree! To me it looks al oat as if the dress has slipped down , revealing a cream coloured bra. I think she should have covered her chest a little more.

      Delete
    2. I also agree! I think a sheer panel over the top would have been more appropriate and not look like everything is so "out there." I also think that she should back off of the extremely high heels. She is tall already but compared to the people she is meeting on this trip she looks like a giant. I worry she is going to damage her feet and back someday. I do think the dress otherwise is beautiful, she looks lovely.

  6. Dear Charlotte,
    thank you very much for your wonderful job. Your blog is really always the best and fastest source of information :-)

    Regarding Kate's dress: Wow, it really looks magnificent. I have only a question also to the other readers. Don't you think the dress is a bit too sexy for a Muslim country like Malaysia? The other women were all covered-up...

Brazil is not a Muslim country, is a secular country where different religions coexist harmoniously and in peace.I am a proud Brazilian religious freedom there is in my country and yes, there are many, many Muslims here, all very welcome and has a beautiful story here (such as trade on the famous Rua 25 de Março ou o Bairro do Pari ou Foz do Iguaçu .. Make sure that you and anyone else who wants to visit are very welcome here ...: D

  7. Every inch a fairy tale princess! How beautiful Kate looks! I am not even disappointed by the fact she does not wear a tiara. She is so gracious, so charming. I am sure William realizes what a lucky man he is.

    And I really like her speech too. She feels much more confident than she did for her first one.

    Thank you a thousand times Charlotte. Your blog is really the best!

    All I can say is WOW WOW WOW!!! The Duchess hit this one out of the ball park. She looked just stunning. I do have to say that her chest look's bigger (sorry) but with all the baby talk recently I just had to point that out.
    I did miss the tiara tonight but she still looked just beautiful. I always wonder what her Prince thinks of how she looks.

  21. She probably couldn't have gotten away with this dress at home, but I'm so glad they're touring somewhere exotic where she can get out of her usual style a bit (like the Prabal Gurung the other night), because this dress is AMAZING. I can't wait to see more detail. Too bad there is no tiara, but it probably would have been too much with this dress' detailing. Maybe one day!

    Thank you Charlotte! You're not only miles ahead of any other Kate site, but you give so much information and fun detail about what they're doing as well. Hope you're getting some sleep!

      But the beautiful duchess has looked just stunning in everything she has put on so far. And the dress tonight was just stunning.

  26. What?! What was she thinking? This is a horrible dress. In fact, i havent been impressed at all with her sartorial choices this tour.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm still gasping for air here....oh my lord, just exquisite. Thankfully she did not wear a tiara, otherwise I would have fainted (just kidding, but barely).

    Just exquisite. I literally got chills. What a gorgeous dress, so "regal" (no pun intended). It's the sort of dress that also combines, somehow, a bit of east and west. If I wore such a thing I'm sure I'd sashay around, like a little girl pretending to be princess.

    This level of sartorial beauty is a first!!!! Silvia

  28. Everything has been said about the dress, maybe it's time for us girls to address the makeup : SHE'S WEARING FALSE LASHES !

    I think it's undeniable, on the photo where she sits at the desk. Her hair is as sleek and shiny as ever, beautiful.

    I'd like to hear other thoughts about the false eyelashes, because it's the first time she wears some, right ?

    Thanks Charlotte!

    2. I noticed the false eyelashes too, right away. I have never noticed her wearing them before. Are they considered "stylish" now? They don't look horrible, just a bit different. I am not sure about the hair stylist she has accompanying her on this trip.... I wonder if she is influencing the make-up too?

      Delete
    3. Ana B. from Brazil13 September 2012 at 20:11

      I am not a big fan of this new hairstylist. I think Catherine's hair looks good, but hers locks used to be STUNNING. In my own experience, hairstylists can very much influence your make-up! I noticed her eyeliner is not that hard lately.

      Delete
    4. Thought so too... I really like them on her on these pictures. I do find her make-up is getting better and better. Much more subtle than a year ago. Really beautiful. I'm sure the hair is more difficult to style because of the humidity.

      I didn't know you were studying law. Are you looking at a law future? Any way I do have a question for you, hope you can give me some insight. On this tour (and the Canada) everything has been the focus of the beautiful Duchess. I was wondering how William feels about all the attention going to his beauitful Duchess? We all know that his father just hated all the attention William's beautiful mother was given. I just hope that William is not like his father. The Duchess & her Prince are such a great couple together.

    7. My thoughts EXACTLY Siobhan - and I visit so often because Charlotte's take is always so positive and never resorts to gossip or speculation. I rarely read the comments as invariably someone has negative crap to say which is so boring(and funnily enough usually anon). We read this blog because, like Charlotte we have genuine affection for Kate and Will and have no desire to tear them down. Huge kudos to you Charlotte!

  34. She looks stunning. I love it very much

    ReplyDelete
  35. While this gown is not one of my favorites, I think that it is really pretty and appropriate for the occasion. On the other hand, I think that her hair is needs a change up - the half up/half down look is getting old. I think a nice side pony would have looked more modern and young. Between the gown and the hair she looks way too old for her age. Just saying.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Can I love a dress and dislike it at the same time?
    On one hand, it's a beautiful, exquisite dress, fits perfectly, and flatters Kate's perfect figure. On the other, it's a bit too much of a good thing... I get the feeling that she is not completely comfortable wearing it.
    All in all, looking very beautiful tonight, quite stunning.

  37. Not a great fan of the dress, I think the white bust part conflicts with the rest, and I also think it is too low cut for the country. The other ladies are more covered. I do love the embroidery though.

  41. I love the dress! I thought it was perfect until people mentioned all the other women are covered. So maybe for this occasion it's a little low cut. Otherwise she looks like PRINCESS to me.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Absolutely stunning! As others have said, every inch the fairytale princess, and totally appropriate in the exotic place she is visiting. I would love to see the shoes. They look like gold sandals. Re: tiara, I wonder if the reason is that because William is not second in line to the throne it is not appropriate for Catherine to wear them yet. For example, Diana was Princess of Wales. Does Catherine have to wait until she is Princess of Wales? Does anyone know?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. She can wear a tiara and does not have to be Peincess of Wales to do so. I imagine she has chosen to look more simple. She is wearing only simple jewellery -it's not a glittering occasion. I saw Kate a few weeks ago leaving the house where she lives in Anglesey and she looked very ordinary- hair in a ponytail and what looked like a sweatshirt- you would not have looked at her twice! Hard to imagine its the same person!

  43. I did not like it either. This dress should have been in chiffon. It looks cheap material. She pulled it off though. Yes it was a but low neckline IMO

  48. I'll bet that when the dress is worn in the UK, it will be minus the sleeves. I agree that the neckline was way too low for a conservative Islamic country such as Malaysia. (Although I was surprised that the Agong's wife did not cover her head!)

    ReplyDelete
  49. I can't believe Kate wore heels! When you are a guest somewhere you respect the peoples likes and dislikes and culture. It just shows her lack of interest and disrespect. I mean is it so hard to not wear heels for one night? And not have such a low cut dress when you are in very conservative and mostly Muslim area?

    1. Exactly. Not everyone is interested in seeing Kate's girls. What is more, Kate, by wearing such very very high heels, does a great damage to her own spine so not the best choice at all...

    2. As with all royal tours, I am sure that everything in her wardrobe was well planned out. The royals are very careful about protocol.

      On the other hand, I've often wondered why many foreign royals/dignitaries do not dress in western style clothing when they come to Buckingham Palace as guests of the Queen?

  50. I'm surprized of the clavage/bust part,but i like it,it's unusual of her,she looks like sheherezada from 1000 & 1 night.I'm sure royal protocolar department which is involved in every state visit wouldn't approve something inappropiate.her shoulders are covered and european ballgowns use to have a low neckline. Her yellow gold jewellery proofs me my belief she looks better in warmer colours. I bet the upper layer is separable,allowing her to wear again the gown,or just as a cream one,or maybe with some different overlay or bolero.

  53. I love the dress and I don't think the neckline is too low. I wish that she had worn some kind of necklace. I believe that she honored the custom of the country, covering her shoulders and legs, but kept to her own sense of fashion too. She really is fab!!

And she could have worn a nice diamond necklace instead of a tiara. I love this lady in jewels. She can carry them off. Let's face it. She can carry off just about anything. Once again, a great job YRH.

  57. I don't know whether I like the dress or not, but it's a real fairytale princess dress. When I was a child I drew pictures of princesses all the time, and this is exactly the sort of dress I always imagined a real princess wearing :D I love Kate's hair and jewellery as well.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Absolutely stunning and regal! Perfect. I also agree that a tiara would have been too much. I have a feeling she will choose a very understated gown the first time she wears a tiara.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I think the dress is really appropiate for the occasion. Kate certanily knows what she's doing. The dress is beautiful, but for me golden details are just a little too much. But I' m too pretty shure that the upper layer is separable,and that we will see Kate wearing this dress again but just as the cream simple version.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Personally, this dress is not really my cup of tea and a departure from Kate's usual style.

    However, I think Sarah Burton and Kate absolutely nailed it if their intention is to create a modern/ western take on a traditional Malay 'kebaya' dress. Just look at the dress the local Malay ladies wear in the pictures and you can see the similarity of Kate's dress with them. Kate's dress does not look out of place at all and they all have quite similar embellishments and fabric style.

    In that sense, this dress is perfect for this occasion. Sarah Burton and her team fully understood how the women dress in this country and create their own interpretation of the local style. It is a success to me.

    The only thing I found it funny is how exposed bare arm is not allowed but it's okay for cleavage. :)

      If these pictures are released tomorrow it is going to be a shame. I just can't imgime how she and William are going to feel while on tour. It is bad enough to have them released while you are at home but on a tour for the Queen. I hope the fans here on this great blog will not stoop that low and look at them. I know I will not. It is their privacy again being invaded.

      Then you will have people saying she should have known better but I would disagree with them. They were on private property and there was no one else there. She was with her husband and I would think that if William was worried that there could have been photos take of his topless wife he would have suggested that she not do it. But they were together enjoying each other.

      Delete
    8. How sad :( I feel sorry for Kate. I was wondering where it could have happened. Why she would feel so "safe" as to do that and I just read Charlotte's comment saying it was at Viscount Liney's house, WOW! Unbeliaveable! How embarrasing this must be for Kate. I would be so angry and upset. Now, with the internet THE WHOLE WORLD will be able to see such an intimate moment... Prince William must be livid. He already hates the media.

  69. It is a horrible invasion and disrespect of privacy, needless to say. Nonetheless, the Royals KNOW how terribly invasive and cameras are and how shamelessly photographers operate-they know how a picture can be captured when and how one LEAST expects it (need I recount the number of incidents: HRH at the beauty parlor, their honeymoon, their family vacation, etc. etc.???). If I were a royal, I would, quite simply, never ever go topless. Just never. It's too much of a risk.

    Hopefully the photographs will NOT be published. Silvia

  70. Bea you are absolutely correct. William WILL be livid. He watched the paparazzi hound his mother to her death and now he must feel helpless in trying to protect his wife. And for this to happen when they are on an official tour........and if she IS pregnant...........it's just disgusting beyond belief.

  72. Not everyone in Malaysia covers their head. Only Muslim women does it and even then not all them does it such as many women from royalties and Ministers' wife do not cover their head. Example, the Queen, the Prime Minister's wife, Deputy Prime Minister's wife all do not cover their head.

    Thought she would have worn a Malaysian designer dress like in Singapore and a long dinner gown in the Malay style would have done wonders for her. A bit disapointed there :((

  73. I'm a great fan of Kate's style, but I don't like this dress at all. It's too much. Too much golden embroidery. The top of the dress is a little inappropriate for the occasion. Plus, it's ageing and old-fashioned. I cannot believe this is a MacQueen dress...
    My favorite so far is the beautiful and exotic Prabal Gurung dress.
    Kind regards, from Portugal.

  74. I love this dress!!! The top is not too low at all- she looks like a Disney Princess!

    Re: the France pictures, they were taken during a private moment and without her consent, they absolutely should NOT have been published. Shame on the French media.
