close up, not a pretty sight: the heavy eyleliner makeup looks horrific, the hair unwashed or unkempt and kate is already aging badly for a woman who is not even 30.

It is a dress with a jacket she most propably only wore while outside. I don't see how beige doesn't go with black/white IMO there is no need to match everything you wear from shoes to purse. As long as she doesn't walk around looking like Carrie Bradshaw in her haydays...

She looks old in these pictures... The outfit is very nice, though. I love the skirt/dress and the boots.

Poor Kate, those really are unattractive photos! The dress itself doesn't look bad IMO, but I don't like how she combines dresses with what I think are too tight and too short jackets that may or may not coordinate. She must really like the look because she wears it quite frequently to weddings and such.

I agree that she needs to ease up on the eyeliner. I can't imagine why she thinks she needs so much in the first place. She's a gorgeous woman!

Also, again just my opinion, she needs to get a handle on hair care when she doesn't have a professional helping her. The ends look dry and brittle and the color needs a definite boost as roots and ends are not remotely similar. I hate to sound harsh but I think that being beautifully turned out in public (down to the smallest detail) is now part of her job description going forward, like it or not.

I agree with you.
I think she needs some professional help.

The jacket is out of place, for sure!
Never liked her make-up preferences, too heavy for a young girl (or anybody).

It would be nice to see Kate do something different with her hair. Kind of boring to always see it
down.

I thought her jacket was very pretty & did fit very well. The skirt is not bad. I think the overall look was nice but ruined with the very dark tights that looked like really high boots.
This would've been a nice summer look minus the tights.

I assumed the skirt was a dress and she threw the jacket on outside- oops! She should have had the jacket open it's looks unflattering on her zipped up like that but of course it's cold so function first-

I do wish she would smile a bit like Camilla is doing. I realize the press must be annoying but ya know what you're signing up for- embrace it a bit and try and look happy! :)

Edit- in another pic the skirt looks tan colored so maybe it does match jacket-? Also I feel she needs to cut her hair it seems to be getting a bit long and 'weighs' her down IMO

I agree that she is not aging well, she doesn't look like someone who is only 29.

i wonder if she is getting worn down from the pressure of actually getting married and marrying into that family? I can only imagine now that its offical she has a lot more pressure on her to behave, be pretty and always look your best.

Good observation. I believe both Kate and her sister have rather bad skin, they're not going to age well. As to the outfit, it's horrible. Just horrible... I like nothing about it, the boots and jacket being the worst and tackiest part, IMO. I see she went out just for lunch but still. She's going to be the No1 Princess in Europe very very soon, better start to respect herself and her position. Her appearance is the mirror of all that, something that the avid fans of Letizia for example don't seem to understand.

I agree that Catherine's outfit for lunch with Camilla was not her best book, and she look fatigued as well.

Maybe she was trying to be careful not to upstage the Duchess. Maybe she's trying to avoid the mayhem that ensued following the engagement pictures, to avoid any appearance of "endorsing" any one designer or look.

Kate seems to do better wearing one-pieces rather than trying to combine skirts and jackets.

I still think though, that overall, Kate is a lovely woman and dresses well. But I don't think she would want the focus to be solely on her clothes.

Who really knows? Just speculating . . .

Marigold, I'm afraid there are no excuses this time. This was a good hot mess and besides, the media will always follow Kate and comment on her outfits and general look. Why not go for class and elegance, when you have all the means to do so?? In a few months she'll start to represent a nation. I'm sorry, I couldn't help comparing her to Letizia. Well I changed my mind, at least Letizia is pretty and takes care of her skin, hair and make-up. (...)

Fitted jackets like that are supposed to be worn buttoned or zipped, not open. The skirt or dress (it's not clear what it is) isn't as short as it may look at first glance; it's got a wide band of black at the hem. I still rather like the outfit and would not want to see Middleton dressing in a stiff suit for a casual lunch. I've never thought much of the way Letizia of Spain dresses. her clothes seem to me to be quite forgettable.

However, I'll agree that Middleton has to do something about her hair, which is too long and getting a little boring. I've long suspected that Middleton thinks her hair is her best feature and that she'd look less attractive without that long mane. The truth is that she may be correct -- though her looks are appealing, she's not a great beauty -- but she could still take off some inches and get a better cut.

As for her skin, she simply wasn't born with a great complexion, and there is only so much she can do about that. Her skin is thick, somewhat large-pored, and has some olive undertones. A porcelain-skinned princess she's never going to be.

I liked the jacket and the dress for that matter, but all round her appearance was washed out. The hair has got to go either back or cut into a more Princess-like shearpness, it looks in the photo dull and in poor condition.
I love the diary as I always have one and loath phones and so on.
The eyeliner is a big question make ..what is it just a really bad photo or the real thing.
I also think she has lost a lot of weight .. but am loathed to go on as I do not wish to start that discussion.
Verdict IMO anyway ... needs work.

True, of perhaps William prefers her with long, loose hair.
I think that everyone, to an extend, adapts his or her appearance to the partners preference.
That said, doing something different once in a while with that long hair would be nice.

Like I said on the other thread, she looks like she came straight out of the jungle. Her face looks beat up too...she must be stressing a lot.
