They came…  They went…  In less than 48 hours Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middeton created a media frenzy with their visit to the gold coast of California.  Everyone waited in anticipation of what Kate would be wearing.  It was rumored that her North American tour would include 40 carefully selected outfit changes.

The Duke and Dutchess touched ground in California on Friday, July 8th.  Kate embarked from the jet wearing a ruched dress in a pale gray color by Roksanda Ilincic. This was accented with a clutch by L.K. Bennett and a pair of nude pumps.  She later changed into a simple belted green dress by American Designer Diane Von Furstenberg to attend a private reception held at the U.K. Consul-General’s home.

Saturday began in Santa Barbara with a polo match in which Prince William took home the trophy.  Kate cheered on her husband in a Jenny Packham floral print dress and L.K. Bennett heels.  Later that evening both attended the BAFTA Brits to Watch Gala where Kate stunned walking the red carpet wearing a lavender Alexander McQueen gown with Jimmy Choo platform sandals.

Their final day was spent in a philanthropic mode with a stop at Inner-City Arts Center for children followed by a visit with veterans.  Kate dressed down wearing a Lina Dobby crocheted navy top , a white flowing skirt, blue suede pumps and carrying a tan clutch.

Kate Middleton did not disappoint.  She is truly as much a fashion icon here in America as she is in England.
