No prob. I'm off for the night been up since 9am and didn't get much sleep last night so my body is kinda confused at this point. Gonna make some dinner then relax for the rest of the night. I'll check to see what else I can find in the morning. Otherwise we'll be at it again next Friday!

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....
Totally agree. She has done well. She looks brilliant - and she has been able to off-set the neck/posture problem somewhat with the extended up-do in the back. (But she is seriously hunched and that will only get worse unless she addresses it). She really does look relaxed and happy, though. Having the hair up is such a great change but she seems totally relaxed with it - so that's good. (We can still hope about the eye-make-up for one day, someday, to metamorphose - maybe when she's finally a mother).

Ah, so you see it, too. They have to avoid side shots - its been very noticeable in the past with side shots. If she doesn't fix it, it could bode not well as she grows older. Best to get in the habit now. Pilates? Feldenkrais? Or perhaps just a a few lessons in runway walking?

Only complaint is the dress flatens her chest, a part from that she looks great. Her face also looks fuller which makes her look even more pretty.

I think she is slowly growing into her position.

Yes, she might be starting to hit her stride after this initial year.

I've noticed that Kate leans slightly to the right when she walks as well, like she's leading with her right shoulder.

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

'WOW' is really the only expression that comes to mind when looking at Catherine's dress from last night's gala. She looked poised, regal, elegant, sophisticated, etc, and every bit the princess that she is. She rocks that shade of blue and I do hope we see her in it more often. I loved William's little jokes and digs at his brother during his speech. He definitely knows how to get people's attention. I'm glad that they were able to make this appearance. The Olympic fever is starting to rise, or so it would seem, according to the Duke's speech. It'll be an experience of a lifetime for so many.

Many thanks to ghost_night for all her hard work in finding videos and links. It is appreciated.

I absolutely love the dress and the hairstyle that Kate wore for the Gala and I've noticed something very appropriate for the occasion and I'm wondering if she planned this on purpose.

I sensed a bit of a Grecian undercurrent in the style of the dress and with the updo she wore, it reminded me of the recent ceremony in Greece to light the Olympic flame which began its journey to the UK. Perhaps I'm seeing things but I did check out the video for when they lit the flame and Kate would have fit very nicely into the ceremonial group. What do you think?

I had the same thought, Osipi. Obviously there are big differences, but the pleated skirts aren't dissimilar. I think it's more a coincidence than an intentional homage on Kate's part given that the flame lighting ceremony was only a couple of days ago. Kate's dress and clutch are bespoke so I'm sure they've been working on it for a few weeks at least.
