Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge put the slightest flowy, bohemian touch on her signature polished wardrobe for a whirlwind weekend on the west coast -- her first trip to the U.S. Switching gears from a more buttoned-up look in Canada, Catherine arrived in a crisp lavender Roksanda Ilinic and nude pumps.

On their next stop, to the British Consul-General, Catherine came out in her first American designer: Diane von Furstenberg. She paired the punchy Kelly green dress with a DVF leopard-print clutch, coming as close as we imagine she can to a California-girl vibe.

Though it held to a muted palette of gray and yellow, Kate's Jenny Packham dress marked a rare adventure in prints for the Duchess, as she watched her husband play polo.

For her most anticipated outfit-change during the Hollywood weekend, Catherine opted for a serene lavender Alexander McQueen gown and glitzier-than-usual Jimmy Choo heels on the red carpet. The fairly understated ensemble made a mostly regal statement among all the movie stars.

Kate's last-day-in-L.A. outfit came from London's High Street fashion favorite, Whistles. The crocheted top and cream pleated skirt looked sweet but low-key, and appropriate for the day's activities: she and William attended a celebrity charity breakfast for Tusk USA, painted pictures with inner-city children, and met with military families before heading home.
