Diane Von Furstenburg green dress

The Duchess was spotted in this bright green dress on a couple of occasions: first at a dinner and then at Zara Phillip's pre-wedding festivities.
True to Kate's style the dress features 3/4 length sleeves, waist detail, and a slim skirt silhouette.

Via: InStyle.

An expired on-line listing at high end retailer Saks Fifth Avenue labels the dress as the "Maja Belted Silk dress" by Diane Von Furstenburg.  While the neckline is a high wide boatneck, the back features a deep v with button closure.  In this picture below the bodice looks a bit more blouse-y than on Kate.
One estimate puts the price of this dress upwards of $450 U.S.

I actually do not like this look for Kate at all (I just don't think that shade suits her skin tone, at least in pictures it looks garish) and I never set out to look for this specific number, so I actually stumbled upon this repli-Kate quite by accident.
Like the original it has 3/4 length sleeves, slim silhouette skirt, and a bright emerald shade.  The only slight difference is the draped style neckline.
