Kate Middleton and her travel wardrobe: Which look was best?

Kate Middleton showed off quite an extensive travel wardrobe as she toured New Zealand and Australia with her husband and their baby. While Prince William sure looked dapper and Prince George sure looked cute, Duchess Kate became the center of fashion attention during the 19-day foray due to her sartorial selection. In fact, on April 28, Hollywood Life stated that "Kate showed off 22 looks in 19 days."

That's a lot of outfits to keep track of when considering what to wear to what event during the royal tour taken down under that ended earlier this week. Meanwhile, at the beginning of the long journey, Kate stunned in a lipstick red Catherine Walker coat dress, as displayed by Forbes in a photo show depicting this new mother's fashion parade.

Also on offer by Kate Middleton during her first official trip since this beloved Brit gave birth to Prince George eight months ago were frocks by a number of other designers who work out of the United Kingdom such as Alexander McQueen and Jenny Packham.

That said, Kate's alleged $65,000 wardrobe included outfits by Australians designer while Middleton's favorite wedges were donned for times when traveling meant exploring rough terrain such as Australia's celebrated Ayers Rock.

Coat dresses were this fashionistas go-to travel attire. However, at times she was seen in less tailored ensembles while at other times she put on fancier dresses more appropriate for formal evening engagements. At least once, Kate recycled an outfit from her own wardrobe while on this historical trip.

Meanwhile, now that this seminal journey came to its inevitable end, Kate Middleton can be proud of how well turned out she was without wearing any skirts that were too short, at least as considered by the keen eyes of her conservative grandmother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth.

Prior to her family's journey to Australia and New Zealand, the 88-year-old matriarch warned her granddaughter-in-law Catherine to represent with decorum and with longer hemlines than she typically has been sporting for quite some time in her native England. In the end, both Queen and Kate were no doubt happy with Middleton's travel wardrobe decisions which obviously served everyone well during the most recent official royal trip down under.
