I agree about the hair. Her hair is beautiful, imo.
Actually it is the current trendy style, if you look at the pictures of most of the young actresses in Hollywood.

Unhealthy?
Freewheeling? - yes
Casual - yes
Tumbling - yes
Tousled - yup
Imperfect - messy - non-traditional - sure, if you think so
Not sprayed with laqueur within an inch of its life - yes

But unhealthy - No

Really dislike the whole look, can't really abide black opaque tights on grown women. The skirt is too short also, imo.
Do love the jacket, it appears soft and cosy.
Her eyemakeup seems to have lightened up.

Yet others criticize the Duchess for looking older than her years. She has lots of years ahead of her to look mature.

Perhaps nude stockings would have looked better. I don't like the ruffles or whatever that is on the skirt. Otherwise, I don't mind the look.

Love the colour. I really like the top half of the outfit. The cut of the jacket is nice.

I don't though like the skirt as the length looks odd. I also don't like the opaque tights. I hope she isn't going to become like Mette-marit and wear them all winter long.

The skirt's too short and the shape of the skirt is wrong for her figure type. She's relatively narrow through her hips. The kicky hem would have worked if it were a few inches longer.

Her hair looks lovely today.

Her hair is certainly not unhealthy; it shines and has a great look to it. Where and what do you see what is unhealthy?

As to her looking more mature, isn't she already criticized she looks older than her age? How much more mature you want her to look?

Also, I cannot help but asking: where do you see messed up hair? It basically sits straight with the curls at the bottom, nothing sticks out.

This has to be my least favourite of Kate's outfits ever.
I'm not particularly fond of the skirt suit, and certainly not with those tights and especially the print or lace top.

A definite miss for me.

I like the outfit. I think skirt suits are nice and elegant. The color is very nice. I think the lace top works with the outfit. The only thing I don't like is the black stockings. Overall, she looks lovely.

Agree with you. Plus the skirt was too short. Okay, that's today's fashion but I wish Catherine would project a bit more glamour instead of girlie glitz.

Good lord u sound like a bunch of school marms scolding a girl for daring to not wear her skirts below the knee.
I don't like the black stockings, like someone else said it looks strange on a grown woman, it especially clashes with the shoes. I think if a woman wants to wear black stockings they should be sheer.

Re dark tights, they seem to be the rage in London the last 2 winters, and you see a very large number of office going women of all ages in them. Personally, I prefer sheer, but this seems to be on-trend here

The outfit's nice, suits her well. But it's not my taste, she looks so much older than 30.

She's wearing a dress by Reiss today.

It is only three inches above the knee.

As for the tights, people made fun of her before for wearing nude tights and now they don't like the opaque ones either! Is she supposed to go bare-legged in winter?

I think the opaque are a great choice; she is most likely trying to silence the critics who will say her skirt is too short!

Count me into the miss-camp, too. Lovely colour but the skirt is far too short. A lace shirt underneath???
Thick black stockings - ick!
I dont think anyone denies that Kate has beautiful hear but the way is worn is just terrible. Hiding behind a wall of hair.

Hang on, is it just me who sees a difference between stockings and tights?

The UK is freezing at the moment, beautiful sunshine though. Tights are a must!

Green Reiss coat with her standard black boats for today's outing. It's still cold so I don't mind the coat look.
