Kate Middleton is currently on her first-ever royal trip to India, and she's already worn not one, but two rather brave outfits. First, she chose a colorful maxidress and heels (!) to play sports, and today, she wore a very, very white dress while surrounded by food.

During a visit with young Indian tech entrepreneurs, Will and Kate were invited to try the resulting product of a machine that makes dosas, or Indian crepes. But while William accepted the offer (and declared it "delicious,") Kate waved it away.

The dress in question is an older one by British designer Emilia Wickstead, one of Kate's most trusted go-tos. The wool-crepe midi dress was recently on sale at the Outnet for 60% off its original price of £1,760 (that's about $2,500), though naturally, it's sold out by now.

The dress appears to be lightweight enough to withstand India's temperatures, however — later on in the day while visiting the India Gate, Kate experienced a slight "Marilyn moment."
