But she has one. Did you mean she needs a different hairstyle?

There's not much of a difference between a stadium full of cheering fans and an angry crowd screaming abuse at you. They're both just making a lot of noise. How you take it is up to you. Convince yourself they're cheering for you. You do that, and someday, they will - Sue S.

I like Kate's outfit from the Derby. Less sure about the gala dress, except for the shoes! I would wear those in a heartbeat!

I thought Catherine looked wonderful. The dress was not to my taste, but I thought it worked for her, and it was good to see her glam it up a bit. I think she might have real potential to develop as a fashion icon in time.

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.
I think LK Bennett do sell in the US now, so you should be able to get them. Have a look at their website, I think they do have some US retai operations.

I am so glad that the Duchess of Cambridge has gone for the glamourous but discreet look. She is not a 'celebrity' - she is a working member of the Royal Family. There is a fine line there. I thought she looked lovely.

I favour the view that she should keep her hair down if she feels comfortable with it that way. Even loose chignons can make some people look severe. I feel sure that, over the years, she will experiment with her hair, but she has so much new to deal with that being comfortable with her hair down probably helps! :-)

Only disappointing part of her overall look looking at the pictures again was her heavy make up.

I agree, the make-up is very heavy, especially eyes & eyebrows are too much.

Nice full view incl shoes

Nice dress, appropriate for a new Duchess. I find her too thin but I'm showing my 44 years.

I think her overall look was marvellous but there was something not quite right. It wasn't until I saw the picture on the model that I realised that it was her hair. It was obscuring the shape and detail of the top of the dress.

So, yes, I would love to have seen her with a soft and feminine up do. I would have like to see if she carried herself any better than the model, although the model didn't have her accessories . . . . the earrings, the clutch, the shoes . . . . . . the handsome prince.

I think I like Catherine's version better.
