Not sure what she was thinking with the neck wrap. If she left the feather wrap behind then I think she would've looked quite nice.

IMO, not quite the unqualified success that we have come to expect from Sophie.

Don't like it at all. The feather boa just makes it worse.

The boa matches the hats worn by the Queen and others . It looks silly to me.

A fuller, more 'New Look' skirt would have made ALL the difference ..

I don't mind it, could be worse. The feather boa adds nothing though.

I think it was very sweet for Sophie to bring her cat to the service today. I wonder how she managed to keep it draped around her neck the entire time.

I am probably the only person who liked Sophie's feather collar. It's different and I like things that are different and not "normal."

I didn't like the feathers but I did love her hat and hairstyle. I wish Kate would wear her hair up like Sophie does when she wears a hat.

I liked it too. It is unique and adds interest to the whole look. I liked the color and the fit is very flattering.

I like the outfit overall, a nice, neat, cream/white outfit and hat. I'm not sure about the feather collar, maybe a ruffled, silk collar would have been nice if a collar is what she wanted!

My thoughts exactly. On a more serious note, if she didn't have that furry thing around her neck, it would have been a very nice outfit.

Not a fan of this feather thing. It looks like she is headed out to a nightclub/party somewhere that is more appropriate attire. She actually looks silly, something like dress up day at the parade, not good at all.

I'll applaud her for doing something different, and it's certainly not the worst thing in the world, but Sophie's collar is not my favorite.

She looks fine, I , too , would lose the furry thing about her neck. Of course, the Garter outfits are silly, too. So she fits in.

Is that Boa part of the actual dress or is she using it to tie in the shades of her dress and hat?

Part of the actual dress- source Royal Order of sartorial splendor.

I like it. It all works for me. The fitted dress is especially nice - and the boa is fine, too.

I like the boa, just don't like the belt on the dress. She is pretty short and short waisted so should avoid belts, IMO.
