When it comes to fashion, the bar set by Lady Diana on her legendary India visit could not be met by her daughter-in-law Kate Middleton on the first day of her visit.
With the duke and duchess visiting the country for the first time, all eyes were glued on Princess Kate but many were disappointed with her sense of fashion for the special visit.
There was a lot of hype surrounding the wardrobe of the duchess for her India and Bhutan visits. The media was overflowing with the speculation of her luxurious outfits but what Kate came out in was not a least bit impressive. She wore a red two piece and her hair were nothing extraordinary, Celebrity Dirty Laundry pointed out.
This was the first fashion example set by Kate Middleton in India and it was disappointing. While it was a casual dress, it was more of an Indian inspired one. She could have been fashionable while keeping it casual. The overall appearance was not quite encouraging.
Even though she missed the mark when it comes to fashion, she and Prince William played cricket and enjoyed a great time with Sachin Tendulkar. They paid tribute to the terror victim of India in 2008 at Taj Palace Hotel Memorial and this was followed by an open-bus trip with children.
While the dress in the morning may not be good enough for the Dutchess to showcase, she made it up with her evening gown, Indian Express reported. The Duchess of Cambridge wore a floor length blue gown, embroidered in gold. The India-beaded gown was complemented by a pair of earing by the Indian designer, Amrapali. The charitable Bollywood gala was graced by the presence of Anil Kapoor, Shah Rukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Sonam Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor and more.
The first day in India for the Duchess of Cambridge got mixed reaction as far as her fashion statement is concerned. However, she was quite appreciated for her personality and eagerness to meet people. Stay tuned as Morning News USA brings day to day update of the trip.
