Its Jenny Packham dress.
I do like the color, its a nice shade. The lace is quite pretty mixed in with the chiffon. I don't mind if she isn't wearing a necklace but I do hope she is wearing some eye-catching earrings.

The neckline on Kate's dress is not nearly so low cut as that one.

Didn't catch earrings.

- Clear view of the dress
- William and Kate
- Close up

LOVE just everything about it. And a nice hairstyle certainly compliments it.

She looks wonderful! Beautiful dress and hair. Anyone know what jewels she's wearing?

A close up of the jewellery. It's unfamiliar to me.

That's a show stopper. My disappointment that she wasn't wearing a necklace is gone. The earrings are great.

I literally wouldn't change anything about this outfit.

Well done, dazzling!

Maybe Kate reads TRF? Maybe she kept wearing her hair down just to annoy some of the posters who kept going on about it?

I think a necklace would have been too much with the lace neckline. She looks spectacular!

I think a necklace would be too busy with the lace; a distraction.

I agree Michelle. The lace at the back of her neck goes higher than I thought and a necklace would've been out of place.

Just saw William's speech on Sky News. He spoke really well about how excited he was for the Olympics to be here this year. He said Harry still goes on about beating Usain Bolt. William said it didn't even count because it was a false start. I suspect they've argued about that once or twice in the last few months!

Oh, yes, you will! But this member of the Greek chorus' updo brigade is singing a paen of praise over that fabulous hairdo; that sophisticated style has totally elevated the entire evening look to a whole different level. I can just imagine a tiara nestled in that elaborate 'do, or a couple of jeweled hairpins. Those lovely earrings and neckline are clearly displayed, and that gown is glorious in both color and style. I absolutely love the back and her matching clutch. Beautiful, sleek and chic; for me, it's her best look ever, including the wedding, and she looked just wonderful. Kudos, Kate, and thank you all for the great photos.

Now that wasn't so hard....
