She definitely looks like she has lost more weight.

She may feel pressured (by herself) to be a size zero now that she is working for Sony Pictures.

Which is why I said "almost" gaunt.

Beatrice looks nice but the dress doesn't seem quite right for such a formal event.

She knew she wasn't going to be the centre of attention and wore an elegant black cocktail dress.

I love the dress very elegant. She looks more put together then Catherine. And those heels!

I don't like the dress at all. It just doesn't flatter her figure. I'm not feeling her hair either, but I love the shoes.

I think Beatrice looks very nice here - love her hair and style, although the dress could have been a bit longer for the occasion I think. That is how a princess should dress - elegant and understated. Beatrice is getting it right more often than wrong these days. Beatrice will still make errors of course but she is still only 25 and finding her style (seems like she and her sister are starting to realise that single colours without the flounces etc suit them much better than any other style)

Love the shoes! Beatrice fairly frequently wears dresses that have puffed sleeves, which IMO, should be relegated to those under 10 years of age. I just don't think they are flattering to anyone over that age.

To me it doesn't look elegant, rather it looks a bit frumpy for a black tie event. I can't decide if the dress is so weirdly wrinkled because it is poorly made, is a bad fit for Beatrice, or because she 'wrapped' it wrong. She works hard to maintain her figure, why not chose something more flattering and appropriate for the occasion? When Beatrice gets it right she looks outstanding, for me this one was a big thumbs down.

The shoes are awful. The dress is awful.

Bea has worked hard to loose weight and she has succeeded. She looks amazing. Now she just needs to start choosing clothes for her new body. She looks amazing in figure hugging dresses without the extra material. She has an amazing body, she should show it off more, I know I would

I thought Beatrice's dress was just fine for this sort of event. "Black Tie" has a very clear meaning for men: dinner suit (tuxedo to Americans). But for women there is a bit more flexibility. This was not a ball and a cocktail dress was quite appropriate dress for women, and this what Beatrice wore. I'm not a fan of the puffed sleeves and I would like to see her in something a bit sleeker around the neckline and shoulders, especially when she's worn her hair down.

I showed the photos to my colleagues at work today as I thought the outfit looked similar to what my immediate boss at work was wearing and they agreed so I started wondering - had she gone to this function straight from Sony - had time to change her shoes but not her dress so needed a dress that was suitable for work AND for this type of function and she did nail that quite well.

I don't like the dress to me it is too frumpy and too dowdy for such a young woman. I do love those shoes though.

The blouse doesn't fit properly, and the skirt looks like she cut up a tablecloth.

That's what I thought too!
Still, at least it wasn't another black outfit.
