I don't like the dress or the hat. I agree the high neckline doesn't help.

Her ascot outfit was not great dress too long and neck too high. The hat looked silly to me . I have grown up around hats and big ones this one just looked strange. I get that Ascot is about hats but this one just a no for me.

I guess the odd one out, in that I loved yesterday's outfit, especially the hat. It was outrageous and the dress fit well. I thought she looked looked wonderful.

Sophie's ensemble is très chic.

I thought Sophie has looked great this last week, well done.


That said, I so do wish she would reuse her clothes a lot more than she currently does.

absolutely adore the emma wickstead cream high necked dress. fit her beautifully, she carried the length and the high neck and sleevless looked great on her. The hat was her best, crazy but you could see her face and nice hairdo and earrings. Really hands down won best

September 11, 2015 - Sophie in a nice orange dress but the fit is unflattering.

Oh, no, this orange doesn't do anything for Sophie. The color reminds me of a prison jumpsuit, and the fit is awful.

I actually think she looks great in the dress, and I adore the color. The fit looks better in some pictures than more than others, I think? Because when I was looking through all the pics on Getty, I had the overall impression that the dress was very flattering, but it seems like that might not be the case from all angles. Or maybe I just like the dress - other people's reactions have thrown me off.

I am in the minority here but I like the orange dress...It's a very brave colour choice considering the dress comes in white and royal blue as well, but good on Sophie for branching out!

I think it's such a lovely colour and it doesn't look too bad on Sophie. I feel if I wore it, as I am EXTREMELY pale, it would look terrible on me.

The dress is by Victoria Beckham.

Sophie yesterday in Gloucestershire in a beautiful dress by Erdem:

You're not on your own, Molly, I love the orange dress too. I'm the opposite to the popular opinion as I think the colour is amazing and flatters Sophie. She doesn't wear orange that much so it was nice to see her in this dress.

I like her floral dress too, it suits her a lot. I used to think Louise was all Windsor, though looking at these latest photos of Sophie I can see A LOT of resemblance between her and her daughter.

Okay, I'm glad I'm not the only one who likes her in the Victoria Beckham dress. I, too, was thinking it was nice that she went for such a bold color.

I love that Erdem dress, too. I was thinking she'd worn it before, as I think she has some other dresses in similar prints, but nope, upon closer glance, it's new (and thankfully Anna's blog has all the info on that kind of stuff ).
