The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are officially on A Trip — and you know what that means when it comes to royals: new outfits. On the first evening of their two-day tour of Northern Ireland, Kate Middleton and her betrothed attended a party at the Empire Music Hall in Belfast, where the Duchess wore a sparkly lurex pleated dress by Missoni.

While it initially appears silver in most photos, the dress is actually apparently mint-colored; paired with the all-over sparkle, it's pretty adventurous for Middleton, who tends to prefer safe, classic designs. The elegant silhouette, however, is very her. (If it's also very you, you can grab it on Net-a-Porter now for $2,480.)

Perhaps she's making a new effort to jazz up her eveningwear: Just two weeks ago, she showed up to a gala wearing a rather show-stopping pink Gucci gown. We always love a little fashion surprise from the Duchess, and hope she keeps them coming.
