She looks very very inflated, and the dress doesnt help at all...maybe it was because of the flight hours...she doesn't look her best!

I do believe the flight must have been very rough. I love the dress I think it is wonderful when she wears something to pay respect to the country she is visiting. I think it went great with the flowers all around her.

The purple and white dress she wore for the 2nd event I loved and thought hey that is something I would wear....bet I couldn't afford it though LOL.

2 hits so far! I bet they just want to sleep some and I hope they get a break today to rest up!

I loved both dresses.

If you look at the cutting and placement of flowers on the Packham dress, it is AMAZING. I am not a fan or prints, and yes I find them a bit stodgy, but done tastefully, they can be very impressive. The eastern styling of the style was beautiful. Was the dress a bit dull - yes, pink embroidered flowers rarely shock people. But it was LOVELY and totally appropriate. Sometime I think people won't be happy until Kate pops out of a plane in a bustier so that we can all be horrified. In a nod to her youth and figure - check out this photo which shows off both. http://whatkatewore.com/wp-content/u...t-11-20122.jpg

But if we found the first dress a bit wanting, that Prabul Garung frock was a complete wow. The color, cut and use of print were spectacular. Young and fresh while completely appropriate.

And hair wise, because we are all watching, not a bit of frizz to be seen. :)

I love, love, love the first dress. Absolutely beautiful.

I liked the second dress, but IMHO, anything she wore after that first dress was going to pale in comparison. She hit it out of the park with the first dress. Wish I had the figure to wear either / both dresses.

Lovely look, very appropriate for representing her country. She must have been exhausted but still able to smile! :)

Im not crazy about the dress but the cut seems to be quite nice. The print and color works for the visit IMO.

I love this look though I can see some may think the cut of the dress a little matronly, but it is a really nice colour for that heat and has the orchid thing happening good for the start of the tour... compliment to host and so on and more importantly she has the hair back ... IMO she needs to take a leaf out of Mary's book get a stylist and get help with the tour robe as I do see what you all are saying re the cut

No I don't think she needs to take a leaf out of Mary's book. Majority of the time when I see Mary I think Stylist or Runway. If she's going to take notes from anyone let it be Maxima, whether it a hit or a miss Maxima personality always shine.

Princess Mary is one of the best dressed royals around, if not the absolutely best dressed. She usually looks respectable yet at the same time stylish. As for Kate's pink kimono as someone else said, I don't love it I don't hate it; it does seem to clash with her tan skin though.

i LOVE this pink modern Kimono dress, love her hairstyle, LOVEEEEEEEE the shoes and especially the earrings^^
its a nice change for her usual dresses and i like it very much.
i agree about Princess Mary, always sophisticated, respectable but fashionable and stylish, i guess now they've been together i wonder if they make contact with each other and/or give Catherine some advices!
Maxima dresses well on most of times, but i dont think her fashion is Catherine's cup of tea.
but i imagine Catherine wearing some of Mathilde's clothes and it works!

I think Kate should pick what she like and what fit her personality in term of clothes. They don't all need to look like cookie cutter clones. Maxima and Marie personalities always shine no matter what they are wearing.
They might not be stylish or people might not consider them to be stylish but they pick what they are comfortable with and as long as it professional I don't see the problem. We might not like what they wear, they might not like Mary's style. It there choice
They (Kate) doesn't need to look to Mary or ask her for advice in term of fashion.

Looking at more pictures of the Jenny Packham dress the deep v neckline is very low especially in pictures when Kate is leaning over. This is prob an instant where having a dresses or stylist would point out that at times the dress is nearly reveiling more than is appropiate. The top of the dress definitely needs to be modified - i can imagine as a bespoke piece it cost quite abit but i really hope we dont see Kate repeating this

I think Kate is always well dressed. However, if she needs any pointers she should call Mary of Denmark.

Judging from what I see from some stylist, they might have put her in more revealing, tight form fitting clothes. A stylist might have point out that but that not always the case

I think Catherine looks very sweet and innocent in the light pink kimono-style dress, and the hair is absolutely stunning. The other dress is very pretty too. I love the touches of purple.
