Three jam-packed days, six events and five fabulous outfits—whew!

The duchess formerly known as Kate Middleton stepped up her style when she and Prince William arrived in La-La Land after their whirlwind tour of Canada...

She touched down in a chic dove-gray Roksanda Ilincic gathered dress (far right) with nude pumps and an L.K. Bennett clutch, then changed into an vibrant green Diane Von Furstenberg belted green number for a reception at the U.K. Consul-General's home. Love it!

Kate then cheered on her hot, polo-playing prince in a printed Jenny Packham frock and nude criss-cross L.K. Bennett heels in Santa Barbara the following day.

That evening, Her Royal Fashionista made a stunning Hollywood red carpet debut at the BAFTA Brits to Watch Gala in a flowing lavender Alexander McQueen gown and Jimmy Choo heels and metallic clutch. (Which, BTW, was revealed the day earlier when photographers snapped the gown being carried off the airplane. Oops!)

And for 29-year-old Kate's final day in SoCal—do-gooding in L.A.'s Skid Row area—she wore a demure Lina Dobby pleated skirt and navy crochet top, blue suede pumps and a tan clutch.

HRH brought her hairdresser along on the trip, so we were expecting to see more varied hairstyles, but she kept her locks loose and wavy most of the time.

Still, Catherine rocked some lovely and appropriate outfits at all stops on her tour. The best ensemble had to be the McQueen gown. The high-end British brand didn't let her down on her wedding day, and it didn't def disappoint in L.A.
