The Duchess of Cambridge set foot on US soil for the first time wearing an elegant blue-grey dress by Roksanda Ilincic.

UPDATED 7.12.2011:  The shoes are the “Lovely” style in the powder pink colorway. Jimmy Choo posted the following on their Facebook page today.

The Lovely is not currently available in the Powder Pink worn by Kate.

The shoe has a 4.3″ heel (110 mm) and is available in the Black Patent for $525.

Kate and William’s first stop was a conference on venture capital and new media put on by Variety magazine. The designer is worn by many notables, including Michelle Obama and Gwyneth Paltrow. Born in Serbia and now London-based, Ms. Ilincic is described by the Telegraph as “Famous for her fluid, draped designs in dazzling, jewel-box colours…”.

With an enormous thank you to WKW Facebook pal Janice and AnnieElizabethN on Twitter, we are able to show you the dress at Matches Fashion, the two eagle eyes discovered the dress there almost immediately.

“Peridot” Dress at Matches Fashion

Here is how the dress is described at Matches Fashion:

“Light blue grey. Draped neck to one side. Cap sleeves. Pleats down from drape neck to waist band. Pleated skirt. White tulle neckline and cuff trim. Centre back pleats. Small pleated panels from back waist band. Exposed centre back zip. Beige grosgrain front tie.”

If still available, the dress is quite a bargain, currently reduced in price from £815 to £570.  It is also available in other colorways, notably a rich turquoise, at other online sites, your best bet is to do a search for “Roksanda Ilincic Peridot dress”.

Kate carried the LK Bennett Natalie Clutch again, and it looked like she kept her Kiki McDonough Grace Earrings on from earlier today.

As previously mentioned, we do not recognize the shoes, a very pale peachy nude with a pointed toe and no platform.  We’ll update as soon as we know the maker and style.

We will return tomorrow, the day holds a host of activities, from polo to the black tie party tomorrow night.
