Kate Middleton Had an Alexander McQueen Easter

Plus: An unlikely game of Who Wore it Better between Middleton and Mindy Kaling.

One of the reasons we assume the Duchess of Cambridge is so likable is that people feel they can relate to her. For instance, she'll wear a white eyelet dress with wedges and you think, "I could totally wear a white eyelet dress with wedges and look just like her," but then every so often, she gets real royal, like on Easter Sunday, when she looked positively regal in custom bluish-gray Alexander McQueen. It fits the Duchess perfectly and could arguably be one of her most elegant looks to date. She paired the dress and coat with a hat by Jane Taylor Millinery, a McQueen clutch on which a skull clasp was replaced with something simpler, and gray LK Bennett pumps.

That was only a small segment of her eventful weekend in Australia. On Saturday, she went to Brisbane wearing a lovely sheath covered in blue poppies from the ready to wear line of her go-to footwear label, LK Bennett, which, awesomely, Mindy Kaling wore first, in last week's episode of "The Mindy Project." The Duchess paired the dress with blue suede Alexander McQueen pumps.

After Easter service on Sunday, the Duchess changed into her second dainty eyelet dress of this tour, a custom made yellow frock, which she first wore in the Solomon Islands during the Jubilee Tour of 2012. This time around, she wore the dress for a sun soaked afternoon trip to Sydney's Tarongo Zoo, where she and Prince George shared some of the most adorable moments of his life thus far, at least that we've been able to see. Here he is checking out a Bilby who is also named George. Fun! Also, the Duchess' hair looked really pretty.

For her arrival in Australian capital Canberra later that day, she wore an understated solid blue sheath dress by Stella McCartney, which she first wore in July 2012 to an event at the National Portrait Gallery. She must have also been feeling blue for baby George, who wore a sweater of a similar color by Rachel Riley.
