I think she looks absolutely brilliant and she and William make a stunning match. Married life does not treat them bad so far - I like that

Love it! not only the dress but the fact that she chose something out of her normal comfort zone. May this be just the beginning!

Definitely different, but not at all bad. She can pull this particular look off, and I'm personally in favor. Love the hair as well. Very nicely cut and colored.

LOL - could be something a D-list star would wear but it's so much better on a royal duchess!

She looks great. I really like this dress on her.

Cute.

I am not crazy about it on the model, but I think the DoC looks smashing in that gown. Her hair and makeup look fabulous!

ETA: An upsweep would have really put her over the top...but she still looks beautiful, imo!

Love DoC's look, it reminds me of a glamorous 1930's look. Just excellent!!!

There is something on this dress that I find somehow strange. Can't tell what and why. I love the colour. Her make-up, hair are very nice. Maybe it is the upper cut of the dress. Don't know.

An undo would have looked better but Kate looks amazing. I love the dress on her than the model!

Lovely

I know that everyone (most people) seem to want DofCa to have her hair up but I have now reached the opinion that it wouldn't be right. I personally didn't like the bun the other day but I think that is because she always wears her hair down and seems to be comfortable with it.

Saying that though, there are times when it would be appropriate to have her hair up (but mainly to keep it tidy).

(Just my opinion, so don't shoot me )

I'll stop rambling now!!

I think a loose chignon would have gone with the "mood" of this evening gown PERFECTLY.

I did not like the way she wore it at the Derby because it didn't go well with the severe little hat...in fact the entire ensemble seemed mismatched.

I was disappointed with the Derby outfit...but not with this Jenny Packham gown! I like it.

OMG.....I L.O.V.E her shoes! I actually was thinking of ordering them and having them shipped from England.....until I figured how much they would end up costing me! LOL!!!!!
checked out the web site and I must say that I love the vast majority of all the shoes. Wish they were carried here in the states.

Yep, that makes a lot more sense than what I was babbling on about

I like the dress, but I'm disappointed that it was worn first by that actress on the Gossip Girl show.

(Although I believe Catherine looks better in it).
