Who sold her that coat? Is this natan by any chance? Simply awful, it is too tight, the wide tucks very unflattering, terrible place for bisecting the colors. Then, ugly brown tights which don't match the beige or black of the coat with black pumps and a feathery mess on her head? Her hair does look wonderful, but the outfit is one of her worst, imo.

The coat looks terrific. Her tights look the way 60-70 denier black tights do, once they are stretched over flesh. A very together and "hip"look I'm thinking.

Colour is nice, the jacket/dress/top coat thing looks awful! A tailored jacket cut at the waist would have looked lovely IMO.

Alexander McQueen thanks to info in the Events thread, not worth the money.

I like the colour but that coat is something else...It's also really odd to see Sophie in trousers. I like the change but I agree, a tailored jacket would have looked good. I like her shoes though - I am sucker for pointed heels.

I would very happily wear that ensemble. Love the jacket.....steampunk in silhouette but conservative in colour. Just gorgeous.

It is a long time since Sophie got it wrong but this is awful, IMO. No to the colour (blerrgh), the folds/pleats/length of the jacket and then matched with trousers. This is an adaptation of the white f/length coat Catherine wore to the Trooping of the Colour a few years ago.

Last time I remember a miss was the white jumpsuit she wore in Gibraltar.

But I love the fact she experiments.

Definite miss!
Don't like the jacket with the bedspread ruffle tie thing, and paired with those trousers? I like Sophie in color, and I have seen her in IMO, much more elegant outfits.

I could see it in a cooler Muslim country. Sometimes, if you ask a friend to take a front and back photo from about 15-20 feet away when you try on an outfit you can make a better decision.

I think Sophie has just got it wrong on this one, IMO.

I agree with you - this outfit and the jumpsuit are Sophie's fashion misses. They both should be ripped from her wardrobes and burnt...

Oy. I'm not liking this look at all. The jacket just doesn't go with the choice of trousers (and I hope that a very helpful housekeeper will 'accidentally' put this little piece of 'originality' into a 'must be burnt' pile and soon).

There is a picture of Sophie in a bright blue outfit if you scroll down the article and she's wearing a very interesting hat!

I thought it looked familiar. I love her blue dress and jacket, which I believe are a Roland Mouret combination, though I am unsure about the hat. It's quirky and very Sophie, but I have to say I would not be best pleased if I had had to sit behind her in the chapel; the feathers would block my view somewhat!

I love the colour of the dress and jacket and paired with her black Jimmy Choo's is a good look.

Sophie - her waist! She has an excellent figure. Sophie - the back of the coat and dress and her hairstyle.

Nice that Edward waited for them to walk in together.
