Royal Visit To India Continues

The Duchess of Cambridge is ever our favorite style icon -- and she and her colorful wardrobe are continuing to nail it while in tour in India with Prince William. The Duke and Duchess just completed their second day of the tour, and though Kate had one less wardrobe change today, both looks were positively stunning.

To start the day, Kate chose Australian designer Emilia Wickstead (a favorite of hers) and wore a lovely white day dress with two pockets on the chest. Though it was windy at the somber event she and William attended and Kate's skirt threatened to recreate a Marilyn Monroe moment, she looked lovely all the same.

For the evening in Delhi, Kate changed into an ensemble by British designer Temperley London.

A crop top is one trend we never really expected to see on Kate, but we have to say she pulled it off with an elegant flourish.

Designer Alice Temperley is known for her intricate embroideries and the look Kate chose for the celebration of the Queen's 90th birthday was perfection -- not to mention cropped. Yes, you read that correctly -- our stylish yet conservative Duchess rocked a crop top (in the most elegant way possible, of course).

The matching Delphia Crop Top and Long Delphia Skirt (which also come in a pretty pale blue variation) looked like a dress when paired together, but when Kate turns to greet guests or help William cut the Queen's birthday cake, you can see that it really is two pieces. Who says royals can't rock the latest trends?
