Duchess Kate dazzles in jade green dress by Alice Temperley

The Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, hit another sartorial high on Tuesday (Apr. 12) as she met Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi with her husband Prince William. Wearing another look by design favourite Alice Temperley, all eyes were on the elegant royal and her beautiful jade green dress. She completed the feminine yet modern ensemble with a pair of nude heels and her LK Bennett 'Natalie' straw clutch bag.

The cotton dress features a high mock neck, fitted waist and a fluted midi hem – a silhouette favoured by the Duchess. Fans of the Temperely Desdemona Lace Dress can get their hands on the garment for $1790.

It's the second time Kate has worn an Alice Temperely creation on the royal tour. On Sunday, she stepped out for a garden party in Delhi to celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday in a stylish crop top and skirt ensemble.

The Duchess has so far impressed with her thoughtful sartorial tributes to India, and the garden party was no exception. The black and white outfit, titled Delphia, featured opulent embroidery motifs of Indian Chintz and lattice – the top retails at $3670 while the skirt has a price tag of $3670.

The design features a fitted waist and a fluted midi hem.

Kate previously wore a striking sari-inspired Jenny Packham gown in a dazzling blue to a Bollywood gala on Sunday evening, and earlier that same day chose a striking mid-length pink and green chiffon dress by local Mumbai designer Anita Dongre.

The Temperley Desdemona dress retails for $1,790.

An aide revealed that the Duchess was keen to fly the flag for local fashion during the trip. "She wanted to wear a local designer at the earliest possible opportunity," they said, adding that the choice of dress was "a tribute to Mumbai's wonderful design talent."
