HELLO! Online correctly predicts Kate's tour wardrobe


Could it be that the Duchess of Cambridge consults HELLO! Online?

Before she set out for South East Asia, we suggested a selection of dresses for her tour.

And our style expert was spot on. On Wednesday, Kate stepped out in a long sleeved version of the Erdem dress we picked out.




Erdem confirmed to us that the Duchess was indeed wearing a custom version of the short-sleeved design from their Spring/Summer 2012 line. 

Just as we predicted, the 30-year-old looked absolutely fabulous in the pleated chiffon frock which features Oriental-style print detailing.

Earlier in the day she had opted for one of her favourites, Alexander McQueen, wearing a bespoke broderie anglaise full skirted dress.

The style-setter followed this up with a nod to her host country, choosing a colourful dress by local fashion label Raoul.

Kate wore the floaty Erdem creation as she and Prince William finished a packed day of activities with a trip to Eden Hall, the High Commisioner's picturesque residence.


Built in 1904 on four acres of land that used to be a nutmeg plantation, the Edwardian home is a key part of the country's history.

The white building with its red roof was the site for the 'Eden Hall Tea Party', on 18 July 1961, which was a key meeting in the run-up to Singaporean Independence.



The royal visitors were the guests of honour at a glittering reception with invitees from the world of politics, business, the arts and sport.

The Duke and Duchess were invited to hear a performance by an artist from the Musicity programme, which is a musical project supported by the British Council that blends British, Singaporean and other musical genres.
