Kate Middleton's wedding dress isn't the only dress of hers that stirred up speculation. Now, everyone wants to know what she's going to wear to the BAFTA party in LA, when she touches down on our American soil in her L.K. Bennett. Whereas Sarah Burton kind of spilled the beans when she was caught sneaking into Kate's hotel (in that conspicuous hat), this time it's Kate's see-through garment bag that's to blame.

When Canadian soldiers unloaded the royal luggage off of the royal plane, a nude pleated chiffon gown was in plain site. That, at least, is how the Daily Mail has described it (they can just feel the fabric through the Internet). They also report that Kate was rumored to wear a Victoria Beckham design, but by the looks of it—if that is The BAFTA Dress—she's not.
