The-artist-formerly-known-as-Kate-Middleton has decamped to Singapore with Prince William for the first day of their nine-day tour of south-east Asia and the South Pacific.

Earlier today the Duchess and her husband was at the Singapore Botanic Gardens having an orchid named after them (Vanda William Catherine, FYI) and it looks like Kate's stylist planned ahead as an orchid print Prabal Gurung was Kate's outfit of choice for the subsequent welcome ceremony in Istana.

We reckon it's a vast improvement on her earlier ensemble (although we grudgingly accept that most of you think we were way harsh on the look).

Although, while we're addressing your concerns, if it was such an amazing dress, why did she change out of it so quickly? Exactly.

Anyway, is the Duchess of Curls Cambridge back on fashionable form?
