Duchess of Cambridge Fashion Style: The Coats during Royal Tour

Duchess Catherine
Duchess of Cambridge Fashion Style: The Coats during Royal Tour Kate has always been a big fan of a formal coat, and it was no different on this trip. The arrival was going to be a key focus, and she stepped off the plane in a vibrant red Catherine Walker military-style coat. The military theme continued with bespoke McQueen in Blenheim before Musto was practical on the water. There were two green coats which had different shapes but similarities in the stitching detailing in the form of Erdem and a second Catherine Walker number. And Kate waved goodbye in yet another smart coat, in the form of Michael Kors jacquard twill. Which is Kate's best royal tour coat?

Duchess of Cambridge Fashion Style: The dressed down looks

Duchess Catherine
Duchess of Cambridge Fashion Style: The dressed down looks Kate showed us all how to do smart casual with two outings for her Zara blazer - once worn over stripes (for sailing) and the other over checks (for a vineyard tour). While she may not have been dressed quite right for the cricket, gamely taking part in her red suit, the Duchess was more casual for a rugby coaching session, wearing a cosy Jonathan Saunders sweater. In Australia day dresses were as dressed down as Kate got on official engagements, but she and William escaped for a night together at the rugby in Sydney, with Kate keeping off any evening chill with a Beulah scarf.

Duchess of Cambridge Fashion Style: Best New Names Labels

Duchess of Cambridge Fashion Style: Best New Names Labels

Duchess Catherine
Duchess of Cambridge Fashion Style: Best New Names Labels There were six labels which benefited from the Kate Effect for the first time, as the Duchess stepped out in their designs for the first time. Prince George's first official engagement saw a debut for American Tory Burch - the only new name on the New Zealand leg of the tour. In Australia Kate wore local label Zimmermann on the beach and carried a bag by another Aussie brand, Oroton, on a visit to a military base. Australian milliner Jonathan Howard provided a distinctive hat for the final day of engagements in Canberra. There were two more American names to add to the roster though, with Lela Rose's white circle dress and Michael Kors' twill coat. What was the best new label?

Duchess of Cambridge Fashion Style: Best Tour Hats

Duchess Catherine
Duchess of Cambridge Fashion Style: Best Tour Hats Kate stepped off the plane in New Zealand wearing a Gina Foster hat - which had the unfortunate side effect of making her look rather like an air hostess - while for sailing in Auckland harbour she donned a practical baseball cap. With the tour taking place across Holy Week and Easter, Kate had two church trips and chose Jane Taylor each time. An ANZAC day service to remember the war dead saw Kate wear a design by Australian milliner Jonathan Howard, which had some Twitter commentators mentioning bunny ears.

Duchess of Cambridge Fashion Style: Evening Dresses during Royal Tour

Duchess Catherine
Duchess of Cambridge Fashion Style: Evening Dresses during Royal Tour With William and Kate wanting to maximise the time they spent with Prince George there were just two evening receptions, one in each capital, and they required cocktail dresses rather than floor-length gowns. But the two dresses chosen packed a punch - and shared accessories. In New Zealand Kate wore bespoke Jenny Packham with a silver fern embellishment while in Australia she chose a ready-to-wear white Lela Rose circle lace dress.

Duchess of Cambridge Fashion Style: The day dresses during Royal Tour The royal mum went for monochrome for Prince George's first public engagement with a Tory Burch dress. Her second daytime frock of the tour had a familiar feel as she swapped pink Emilia Wickstead for blue. Roksanda Ilincic was a winner on this tour, with Kate's eye-catching yellow dress for her arrival in Australia followed up with another sheath style at Uluru. In between we saw a striking Diane von Furstenberg print in the Blue Mountains, Australian label Zimmermann at a hospice and then the beach, Kate clamber into the cockpit of a fighter plane wearing an LK Bennett sheath and another appearance for Kate's 2012 Stella McCartney shift. And at Uluru there was still time for the return of Kate's Hobbs sundress for an...

Duchess of Cambridge Fashion Style: The Suites

Duchess Catherine
Duchess of Cambridge Fashion Style: The Suites Suits did not make frequent appearances on this trip, with just two recycled looks and one new outfit. The pillar box red Luisa Spagnoli suit made a memorable cricket outfit while the blue boucle Rebecca Taylor separates' biggest test were police dog puppies on the final day of the royals' New Zealand visit. Kate's blush pink McQueen peplum top and skirt were a softer style in Adelaide - although the plunging neckline added an edge. What is Kate's best royal tour suit?

Duchess of Cambridge Fashion Style: Which is Kate's best recycled outfit during Royal Tour? It wasn't just favourite shoes and bags Kate dug out of her wardrobe for the trip, she fished out a few familiar outfits too. There was a second outing for her Luisa Spagnoli suit in Christchurch - previously worn on the day three years ago when she and William paid tribute to victims of the city's devastating 2011 earthquake. New Zealand saw a second repeat in the form of Kate's blue boucle separates by Rebecca Taylor - a Kiwi designer. In Australia there was a second outing for a lemon yellow broderie anglaise day dress - worn on the 2012 tour - and a Stella McCartney dress which also debuted two years ago. And at Uluru Kate brought back her Hobbs sundress for iconic pictures at sunset in fron...

The tour had a very different flavour to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's two previous overseas tours, with Prince George very much the centre of attention on the occasions he appeared in public. But all eyes were on Kate's fashion choices as ever. Recycled looks and favourite go-to designers were mixed with new pieces and new names. As the unpacking begins (and we suspect it may take some time) we look back on Kate's outfits from the trip. The coats Kate has always been a big fan of a formal coat, and it was no different on this trip. The arrival was going to be a key focus, and she stepped off the plane in a vibrant re
