DAY ONE, July 8, 2011: Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, changed from her bright red dress and coat which she wore upon leaving Calgary, into a light blue grey dress with a draped neckline dropping slightly to one side for the welcome at Los Angeles International Airport. For the evening reception at the home of the British Consul in Los Angeles, Catherine wore a vibrant green dress with three quarter length sleeves., belted at the waist.
DAY TWO, July 9, 2011: For the visit to the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club, where Catherine went to watch William participate in a charity polo match, the Duchess wore a silk dress with a hand-painted floral motif in muted grey and gold. For the evening’s BAFTA reception, Catherine dazzled fashionistas in her pale lavender gown and five inch high heels. This was the most formal of the Duchess’s outfits, as the reception was a black tie affair.
DAY THREE, July 10, 2011: For the final day in California, Catherine and William visited an inner city school for underprivileged children and a job fair for military veterans. The couple then left Los Angeles on a British Airways flight to return home to England. On this day, Catherine wore a cream colored pleated skirt topped with a navy blue crocheted top.
