The couple are being hosted by the Aga Khan, 82, at an event to showcase modern Pakistani culture ahead of their official visit to the country later this month.

The Duchess of Cambridge debuted a new dress today by a label that might not yet be on your radar.

It’s by ARoss Girl x Soler, the brainchild of Amanda Ross, who previously worked at Harper’s Bazaar and has also been a celebrity stylist and jewellery designer. The brand’s most famous other fan just so happens to be the Countess of Wessex so maybe Sophie and Kate have been swapping style tips!

We love the teal colour and contrast emerald belt on the ‘Amanda’ dress, which you can see up close by clicking (right) through to NET-A-PORTER. Add in some earrings by Pakistani designer Zeen and a classic pair of court heels, and it’s a very elegant look.

The Duchess of Cambridge was perfectly polished for the engagement today, plumping for a flowing teal dress by little-known label ARoss Girl X Soler, which has previously been worn by the Countess of Wessex. 

The dress, made from silk-georgette, boasts a chic waist tie that flattered the royal’s figure and delicate button cuffs that added to its feminine charm. 

The ensemble was more modest than even demure Kate typically wears, suggesting it might have been chosen out of respect for her Muslim host.  

The Duchess finished the look with a pair of towering green suede heels and matching green suede clutch bag. 

She added a pretty pair of green earrings by Pakistani designer Zeen, which complimented the green shadow brushed across her eyes.
