I think that's a Katherine Hooker coat. It looks very much like one of her designs. And I like the boots. I mentioned earlier (somewhere) that I thought Middleton regarded her hair as her best feature and wore it long and down because she feared she wouldn't look as attractive without it. Unfortunately, wearing it off her face really isn't all that flattering to her. Still, I like the look she chose in general.

Not sure where the coat is from, but I am reasonably sure I have seen Carole Middleton in that coat before, quite possibly at Sandhurst.

I have to say I don't really like her shoes but the rest is just gorgeous.

Strange - I saw it just the other way round. I think with her hair open she looks pretty but wearing it in a ponytail enhances the classic features of her face. This together with her smile makes her more than pretty - she really is beautiful.

I think she looks very elegant - a wise choice for such a blustery day. I really like her hair worn off the face & I agree it shows off her features very well.

Muriel, Hooker's designs tend to be similar. And yes, Carole Middleton did wear one to the ceremony at Sandhurst. I suppose it's just possible that it was shortened and tailored for her daughter.

I suppose I don't see Catherine Middleton's features as "classic". I like her looks -- I really do find them appealing -- but she doesn't have the classic bone structure that works best with an off-the-face hairstyle.

I thought she looked perfect for the event, the colors are very winter & everything did match nicely.
Her hair looked lovely pulled back and her featured really shoed nicely IMO. I do hope she wears it back more often. I did not think her hair looked messy, it was quite windy, so who can blame her when it did at times.

IMO the coat that Carole wore is a total different colour:

She looked very good today.
Nice coat and hair. The only thing I dislike are the shoes.

I agree Dazzling, perfect comes to mind when I see Catherine at this event. I don't think I've ever said perfect for her before but she had the whole modern British royal look down to a tee. I'm so glad she wore a hat/fascinator, I was getting worried that Kate wouldn't be much of a tifter wearer. Idk if its just me but I bloody love the shoes!

No count me in too. The booties look classy and new, much better than Kate's usual worn-to-death boots.

Kate wore this coat in 2006 but it was longer.

I must be easy to please because I thought she looked great, from the top of her head to the tip of her toes. Her fascinator was a lovely light touch and her coat, scarf, tights, shoes and bag looked really good.

Her partial updo is a revelation, as her usual trademark look of hair down and partially covering her face leaves much to the imagination but with it pulled away from her face we actually get to see it for virtually the first time. She seems very fine featured, delicate and very attractive.

All-in-all a really great loolk and she seems to have understood that greedy old us want to see her face and a really good hairdo can really make her look great.

I have to agree with you! Loved the outfit, loved the hair pulled back! I thought she looked fantastic!

The coat is much better short. Before it was very old fashioned. Now is very stylish. Her all look is perfect. Very nice. Can't wait to see her as a bride

Lovely outfit. I wish the coat would have been the colour of the blue dress she wore to that wedding recently. More colour please Catherine.
