After a successful Canadian tour full of lovely sleeved dresses, maple leaves, and only one wardrobe malfunction, Kate Middleton has arrived on American soil for the very first time. Welcome, Duchess Catherine!
We’re dying to see what the fairer half of the royal couple will wear to tonight’s star-studded BAFTA Brits to Watch gala, but she certainly made some fantastic choices during her first day in the States. She left Canada in a proper red dresscoat (obviously embellished with the Queen‘s maple leaf pin), and emerged from the plane in Los Angeles in a glamorous pale blue frock. The Roksanda Ilincic sheath had flattering draping and an exposed zipper down the back.
Wasting no time during their short stay in California, Kate and Prince William went straight to Variety‘s Venture Capital and New Media Summit at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The pair attended a reception at the British Consul-General’s house later in the evening, and Kate did her earlier ensemble one better. She chose a dress by none other than Diane von Furstenberg, a smart move considering DVF is the president of the Council of Fashion Designers of America. It also happened to be an amazing shade of green, had sleeves, and fit her perfectly. Yes, we love it.

this is some kind of spaceship or something.
