IMO, i think the dress is awful....even as a skirt it would have been awful.

That was a Grade A faux-pas, my darling Catherine..no no....no, u just can't look like that next to Kim who looked fabulous..Kim is 30 years older than u, sweetheart....Come on, put urself together, pe'leez.. Tho the dress wasn't too bad..anyway, no excuses..Mon dieu,i think she needs an extreme makeover, just like the one Mary of Denmark has had...yeah,that's it, darlings..Does anyone have the Starmakers' phone number, it's urgent!

I don't think Kate is a bad dresser, but she does need a stylist to show her how to mix and match her clothes. To further elaborate: indvidually, all the pieces that she wears look good, but combined together look frumpy. Someone else pinged it earlier: it's like she has no understanding of colour.

I think she would vastly help herself if she gave those boots a rest! It seems like she wears boots with everything. Even if she's not into heels, there are tons of shoes out there that she could wear instead.

I bought it! :) I loved the cut and colour of the dress and jumped on the chance.

My sister said they were going crazy over her dresses on the Today show. I thought they were just trying to promote their coverage of the wedding. I'm almost speechless that women here are clamoring for her dresses. I don't find anything special about them...especially for the price.

Find a seamtress and have one made for you. When Anne Hathaway spoofed Kate on Saturday Night Live they couldn't get the dress so the SNL seamtress bought fabric and made one...looked just like the original.

IMO, VW is emerging as a bit of a cantankerous old bat. She slaged off Emma Watson last week as well.

Again Muriel..with the laughter.

Personally, while I agree that Kate (as of yet) is no stye icon and its a bit early to label her one. I am going to go with the old adage if you have nothing nice to say, say nothing.

If VW is not desigining the Kate's wedding gown, just say I am not and move on. TO me it looks like she is at the age when her filter is gone and whatever is in her head comes out of her mouth or she is looking for press (which I kind of doubt).

Frankly, VW and what we know of Kate's style don't seem to mesh. VW is more of Helena Bohnam Carter and Kate Middleton is Catherine Walker/Issa. And I also think that Emma Watson is a bit out of her style league. Instead of being rude, she should be flattered and happy that people enjoy her work.

But it is the first time, that I have agreed with a majority of the DM posters. Which is pretty scary to me.
