It's only the lack of up-dos that I bemoan with the York girls. They have so many "Hat" fixtures and no experimentation in the area of hair.

As to the rest, they continue to provide an endless supply of shock, approval, dismay and good old fashioned green-eyed jealousy. I love the way they approach fashion. Hell, I even liked Beatrice' wedding hat!

Sorry I was wrong. Thanks to Ccile on her forum, the right answer is : Kate's dress is Reiss

Love it! So elegant and chic! Really good! The best part is hairstyle and hat! And what a handsome Duke...

She looks beautiful! The skirt could have been just a little longer, but her legs are gorgeous. Love this outfit!

A poster within the article mentions seeing a price tag hanging from the clutch purse - I looked and in one photo there does appear to be something hanging from the clutch, but only in one picture. Keys? The idea that it would be the price tags seems sooo odd - but it shows up in only that one photo and is clearly not there in the others.

Anyone else see the same thing? Price tags?

Thank you, bertie.

It was such a puzzle - and for such a meticulous dresser like Kate, perplexing that she would let something like that slip by her.

I thought the DOC looked stunning. As for the York girls ....as per usual, imo, just short of disaster. Eugenie's clothes just never seem to fit correctly.

The Duchess turned up very elegant. The total outfit would be much better if the jacket contrasted the white of the dress rather than the ivory which in some way took something away.
All in all she is finding her style and does a great job.

Seeing that Kate's outfit consisted of a dress and a jacket, makes me like the outfit a little bit more. Though I still think the jacket should have been a light beige color.

Nice dress though.

I feel like I should like this outfit...but I just don't. The skirt is waay too short, even though she has great legs.

And in some photos with that hat and hairstyle, her face looks pretty, then it looks aged and drawn....

I didn't think it was too short. It probably looked short as the pictures that were taken were of her walking not standing still.

I like that Kate is still purchasing clothes from the high street stores. It sends the message that you don't have to break the bank to look good.

Some details about the outfit. The jacket is a Joseph Nessie Tweed, different color of course Joseph Women's Short Nessie Jacket | Jules B
and the shoes are from LK Bennett L.K. Bennett Sledge Shoe Colour Light Taupe Online via Style Compare
Yikes her entire outfit is definetly expensive. But she is spending her money wisely on very nice outfits though.

Did she even need the jacket?
I thought one newspaper described the weather as boiling hot.

I read the Reiss dress (the white version) has already sold out...the company should just give Catherine all their clothes! They can't pay for all this publicity.

@ Mirabel

The weather in London was strange that afternoon. It was 'boiling hot', but with a fierce gusty wind, so probably a cotton jacket was welcome.

The Duchess is doing fantastic things for the {suffering} middle range British fashion industry, as millions of women worldwide can afford these things. They see them and they buy them.....

Its the gents who must've been sweltering in morning coats.

William has a large bank account, I bet.

I like Kate's Derby outfit. I said it on TFS and I'll say it here, but it reminded me of something the Duchess of Windsor would wear (severe hair/hat contrasted with a flowy feminine dress--her look circa 1930s-1940s). I think Kate almost got it right, but it's missing a snazzy brooch, earrings, bracelets--some accessory-- that would take the outfit from 'safe' to 'stand-out.'

The hat and hair are flawless though.
