I'm sure we'll see her in lots of color. She's got the coloring to carry off bright and strong shades. As a very fair-skinned blonde who disappears in them, I envy her.

All the RF ladies are wearing coats with contrast collar, flaps and half-belt. This is a style that was popular in the late 1960s (for we Americans it was a "Jackie O" style). I still have my bright green one with navy trim.

Love the style and it seems to suit everyone.

LOL, When my browser opened the first words I read were Katherine Hooker, and I was like "Why are they calling her that!!!" then I read that it was the designer's name.

Anyway, I love the coat, the hair up in a ponytail. I'm not a big fan of the shoes, but they look ok. What I must confess is that I didn't get the whole point with the little hat/fascinator, none of the other ladies were wearing one, but it gave her a princessy look and I guess for this time, it is ok

I really like the outifit that Kate chose today! The coat is very pretty and also I think that she looks good with this hairstyle.

I like it, good job!
Hilary Alexander wrote an article about Catherine's outfit
http://fashion.telegraph.co.uk/columns/hilary-alexander
I'm wondering is it a new coat or is she shortened it. Anyway, I really like it. Colors are nice, accessories too. The fascinator is good addiction. Unfortunately because of the wind the hair look messy, but I don't care.
Can's wait for tomorrow.

She looked fab!
Nice touch of fascinator. The only thing I do not like is her boots.

Yes- I agree. She looks great. While the boots are not to my liking, they work well with the outfit. I LOVE that she choose a fascinator with Welsh feathers on the buttons- such a personal touch. I appreciate that she chooses British designers. And yes- the colours of this outfit were a little bland, but it was really fitting for the occasion. If she only wears neutrals, I will be disappointed- we'll have to wait and see. Princess Mary's engagement coat was a similar colour and shape. At the time, I remember hoping that her future wardrobe would be more colourful. It certainly has, and I hope the same will be true for Kate.

I also admire that she recycled her coat, hemming it to give a whole new look. Kate will always have to work to balance public expectations that she look good AND not spend too much money and in this regard, she is off to a great start.

Its possible that Kate still pretty much uses or has to use her own wardrobe as she is not a member of the BRF as yet and might not be have access to a clothes budget/personal stylist/designers as yet.

I don't think she used a stylist. This outfit is very much in the vein of things she's worn before. The coat is an old one that she had shortened, she's worn fascinators and pashminas tied like that before, she's always loved boots with dark tights. This is really a very Middleton look. The only things new are the hairstyle and the fact that the boots are ankle not calf-length.

So glad she finally pulled back her hair. I thought she looked great! Go Kate. The only thing I wasn't a huge fan of was the brown trimmed coat with black scarf/tights/boots. But overall, not bad!

Hope we get some good pictures from tomorrow's event as well.

p.s. Actually seems the tights and boots, at least, were also brown, so nevermind

One other thing I liked with regard to her look today was the thick under-eye pencil seemed to be a bit lighter. Not completely gone, but looked much nicer then during the outing with Camilla.

Kate looked great! The outfit was appropriate for the event. I'm really excited to see her on her wedding day.
