It's only the first day of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton's royal tour to South East Asia but already we have to say the style icon has had a fashion fail.
The 30-year-old's wardrobe for the tour has been highly-anticipated, especially after the success of last year's tour to Canada and California as well as her recent addition to Vanity Fair's best dressed list last month.
But we have to say, we're not keen on the garish long-sleeved purple shift dress with psychedelic print the Duchess chose for her second engagement of the tour, which she matched with black suede pumps and matching leather clutch.
Kate wore the dress, by New York-based desinger label Prabal Gurung, to a State reception and dinner at the Istana in Singapore.

It marked a departure from her usual choice of British designer and from the blues, yellows and creams she usually favours.
The edgy print is a far cry from the elegant Jenny Packham dress, the Duchess wore earlier in the visit to the Singapore's Botanical Gardens. The pale pink colour perfectly complimented Kate's tumbling brown locks and simple make up.
No doubt she went for the designer, who hails from Singapore as a compliment to the host country, but for us it doesn't really work as the dress is a little fierce for the conservative royal.
While Kate made the bold statement, her husband Prince William played it safe in a blue suit.
The couple are set to have a busy tour as they spend the next nine days visiting Malaysia, the Solomon Islands and Tuvalu.
