Kate goes from hiking chic to evening glamour


The Duchess of Cambridge went from hiking chic to evening glamour as she continued her tour of the Kingdom of Bhutan with the Duke.

Kate looked elegant in a full-length red chiffon gown featuring a poppy pattern - a nod to the Himalayan blue poppy which is Bhutan's national symbol - as she greeted guests at an evening reception.

The £745 dress is named Juliet and is by British fashion house Beulah, one of the Duchess's favourite designers.

She partnered the striking gown with some simple black strappy peep-toe sandals.

Earlier in the day she had struck a very different sartorial note as she rocked a safari-style look as she trekked three hours to the holiest site in Bhutan, the Tiger's Nest monastery which stands 10,000ft up in the Himalayas.

She wore knee-high brown boots partnered with grey jeans, a white shirt and a khaki waistcoat.

The Duchess wore her hair down and sported a pair of sunglasses to complete the look.
