Kate Middleton fans are totally in their element right now, as the Duchess of Cambridge changed into two different outfits on her fourth day in New Zealand.

After turning heads in a stunning blue Alexander McQueen coat at a war memorial earlier that day, the 32-year-old sported a black body-hugging Jenny Packham dress when she attended a state reception in Wellington, where she and Prince William unveiled a portrait of Queen Elizabeth.

The simple yet elegant frock paid tribute to her hosts with glittering silver beading that was embroidered into silver ferns, which is New Zealand's national emblem.

This marks the first time Duchess Kate sported evening-wear and it's fitting that the mum chose one of her favourite designers for the special occasion.

Also not surprising? The fact that the Duchess let down her hair and styled it in her signature, voluminous waves, which complemented the dazzling beading on her shoulder.

Sorry Prince George fans- the little future King of England didn't attend the event, giving his parents a much needed break.
