Kate’s red, paisley-themed attire, with a shirt split in the front and a black underskirt has a distinct touch of Asia in it. Over the seven-day visit, the Duchess is expected to showcase a number of Indian designers through her choice of outfits.


According to ardent Kate followers, here’s a breakdown of what comprises her first look in India:


The dress — Alexander McQueen


Clutch — Russell & Bromley



Shoes — not Gianvito Rossi as was previously thought. It turned out to be L.K.Bennet Fern


The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived in Mumbai today on their first visit to India and paid tributes to the victims of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks. The royal couple, who landed in Mumbai shortly before noon, visited the 26/11 memorial at the Taj Palace Hotel here. They laid a wreath at the memorial and also spoke to the hotel staff who were present when the iconic hotel was attacked in November 2008.
