Here are some additional pictures. Gotta admit ... it's a honker. However, I'm not loving it with this dress and her hair style. Notice that she isn't wearing any earrings.

The Duchess looks senbloodysational this evening !

Great hair, great gown and SIGNIFICANT jewels... if they are real {even if not it still represents a step forward in that it takes confidence to wear BIG jewels, and her choices ,to date, have been painfully timid.}

Costume or not it's still a big piece. I like it. She is coming out of her shell.

Wonderful pictures. Catherine is stunning, and William is William in a tuxedo.

William looks good and Catherine is beautiful. I like the necklace. I'm not sure about the dress. I like the fit--she has a great figure. It's a beautiful color, but a bit boring. I don't like the shoulders or neckline--although I admit it is a good neckline for that necklace. The dress is very plain and simple which, again, compliments the necklace. I'm just not loving it.

I'll look again in a few hours to see if it grows on me.

I agree, she's coming out of shell when it comes to the jewels. Her late mother-in-law wore a great deal of costume jewelry.

IMO if you are gonna wear such a large necklace and you have the means...it should be real. I wish the hair was all the up with some stud earrings, but she is beautiful no matter what she wears.

this is not my favourite appearance of kate, but she still looks lovely. however, i very much preferred this dress the last time she wore it because:

1. she looked less curvy and more slender in it (see pics below)
2. that ponytail looked slightly tacky to me this time and wished she had styled her hair differently. this is too ´cheryl cole´ material for my taste.

nevertheless, it would be hard for kate to get it completely wrong for me, and i think she still looks fab.

I like that wore her hair in the modern looking ponytail and that she recycled this dress again. The Zara necklace is one of the largest pieces I've ever seen her wear.

The attendance of The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge at this premiere is now made very touching has it is being officially announced that Nelson Mandela has died.
