Maybe there is some truth in her wearing more bling.

I was there, but was pushed back by all the paps. My husband got annoyed, and we ended up leaving right before she arrived. Gah! Patience is indeed a virtue .

An updo would be much better with this amazing gown and this brillian necklace!
I just love this necklace on her, she can pull it off: I mean, look how amazing she looks with such bling-bling jewelry.
I hope she will take this necklace with her to Australia/New-Zealand in April. Love it!

I wonder when she is going to get a hair stylist because it is clear from this look that she doesn't have one. It looks like she didn't even bother to wash her hair - as it looks very greasy. It hasn't been brushed properly.

This woman seriously needs help in the way she dresses and looks as she is a huge failure in these areas.

As a result the entire look is off as we can't see the necklace which should have been clearly visible.

The see-through nature of the dress also means she should have worn a decent petticoat as seeing her legs through the dress isn't appropriate at an official function for the future Queen.

A... A petticoat? Seriously? In 2014?

Should we also have a fainting couch on hand in case she has a bout of hysteria and we need to send for the apothecary?

Lace her into a good corset?

Make sure to talk about the destruction to the family that will occur if women get the vote?

And her hair looks fine and curls like that take a lot of work.

Hardly unstyled. The style may not be to everyone's taste, but she definitely has a hairdresser working on her hair.

That dress is fully lined with a ink.dark blue chiffon overlay. Her legs are not visible IMO

http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014/...95_470x958.jpg

The black lining is obvious in this picture.

The hair was obviously curled for the event but the atmosphere in London is very damp and as she never seems to use hairspray its probably dropped. That said, I'd have preferred an "up-do" but I still think she look good.

The neckline on the dress compliments the beautiful necklace. I wish she'd worn her hair back to set off the jewelry better. The color is a tried and true favorite of hers.

Daria_S, so sorry you didn't get to see her in person, but I hope you will in the future. (Just leave the husband at home, they never understand).

I think she looks good. I love the dress and I wish my husband's grandmother had such wonderful jewelry and was generous with it!

Catherine has lovely hair and wearing it loose is a good look for her. With this particular dress and necklace though I think it would have been even more attractive if she had worn her hair up or even half up.
