Kate Middleton wearing Green Dress from Diane von Furstenberg
After nine days touring Canada, Kate Middleton -- aka, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge -- touched down in Los Angeles with her prince in tow. After what felt like mere minutes in California, Kate was off to her first event: Variety’s Venture Capital and New Media Summit at the Beverly Hilton Hotel (click through photo or link to see full photos and details). Her outfit of choice was a very American pick: a lawn green silk dress from Diane von Furstenberg.

Kate Middleton's green dress was a wise choice for her first US engagement. Not only was it insanely flattering and a perfect shade for a sunny LA day, the dress's designer is the current president of the Council of Fashion Designers of America. You gotta love a politically correct fashion choice.

Want to steal Kate Middleton's green dress style for yourself? In keeping with her love of affordable fashion, Kate choose a straight-off-the-rack new arrival priced at just $398.00 -- the Diane von Furstenberg Maja Dress. This 100% silk dress comes in a stunning shade of lawn green, with a deep-v back that features gold button closures -- a fun feature that isn't apparent in most of the press pictures from the event. The matching green silk tie belt is a nice addition that helps to define the waist without taking away from the overall beauty of the single-shade dress.

Like most Kate picks, this green dress is selling out fast. It's still available, as of this writing, on the DVF site. And, of course, it's popping up on Ebay, which may be your best bet for finding this dress over the next few weeks. But, given that it's a new summer arrival, I suspect it will be back in stock soon.
