With her spot-on fashion choices, Kate Middleton is nothing short of a fashion icon, making heads turn every time she steps out. This time, the always stylish Duchess of Cambridge looked gorgeous in a striking cobalt blue dress by Indian-origin designer Saloni Lodha, when she attended the 2015 Fostering Excellence Awards in London Nov. 17, according to a report on dailymail.com.

The 33-year-old royal cinched the inverted pleated $780 “Martine Dress,” a frock made of textured, crinkly material, with a black belt and paired it with black suede pumps and a black clutch. She styled her hair in a partial updo with soft cascading curls to go along with the midi-length dress of elbow length sleeves.

Contemporary women’s wear designer Lodha, who was born and raised in India, founded her London-based label ‘Saloni’ in 2011.

Her famous clientele includes Emma Watson, Carey Mulligan, Naomi Watts, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jessica Alba. Mulligan was also spotted in this exact dress.

Apparently, this dress is sold out but the brand is available worldwide at 50 stockists, including Net-a-Porter, Harrods, Matches and Selfridges, said the report.

‘Saloni’ subtly draws on Lodha’s Indian heritage, reinterpreting prints, silhouettes and colors in a modern way.

Lodha studied in Mumbai and later moved to Hong Kong and London before returning to Hong Kong where she now lives.
