Holy WOW!! She looks beyond stunning and Kate should wear that colour more often. Kate really hit it out of the park tonight.

Thanks to one and all for all the links to pictures. :o)

I have been looking at comments - from the public - at various newspaper sites and it's clear to me the word most used to describe Kate's appearance tonight is "stunning".

...and I totally agree. Stunning.

The hair has no organised form; the dress flattens her chest and those big clompy sandals should be lost for good!

What does 'no organised form' mean with regards to hair? From what I can see, this is the most organised Kate's hair has ever been!

she looks pretty as ususal. not to sure of the dress tho. love the back and her hair, but the lace seems to be a shade or two off from the dress and thats throwing me off. but overall, very nice change of pace for her.
just a side note: some one should tell her to throw her shoulders back and hold her head straight up. she always has is leaned foward and it really does not do her any justice. and she holds her shoulders not back, but kind of pulled foward. The higher the heel, the more your shoulders have to go back and the head should follow. Sorry. Pet peeve of mine!

catherine is perfect! simply perfect and beautiful!!! a 10 for our future queen!
Today the world has embraced new royal Princesses in the form of Mary of Denmark and Maxima of the Netherlands. But it's questionable whether even these hugely popular, increasingly glamorous future Queens will ever capture the world's imagination in the same way as Diana.
As Mario acknowledges: "She really was a true Princess".
