Opaque black hose have been the height of chic here in NYC for several years. I like them, especially on someone as long-legged as Catherine. My problem with her outfit is that the skirt was much too short and the skirt was not as flattering on her frame.

I almost didn't post this because I think KL usually sounds like such an old poop - but what the heck?

Karl Lagerfeld has praised The Duchess of Cambridge's high street fashion choices - hellomagazine.com

Though the headlines read like a complement, somehow, I sense his snark coming though.

If Kate is 'plain' then there's not much hope for the rest of us.

I think describing anyone as plain is cruel and at the very least rather rude and undignified. I'm quite sure the wrong word has been used in reference to the Duchess of Cambridge and I am even more certain that every woman has her own charms and beauty of which she should be proud. However I'd be quite happy to describe Williams shirts and ties as plain.....

Thanks - you mean Willaim's 5 ties and two color choices for dress shirts, don't you?

HRH has a timeless quality to her. A young modern well educated princess, that also respects the traditions of the family and institution she belongs to and represents. IMO HRH has the most beautiful smile in the world Catherine is many things but 'plain' she most certainly isn't.

If Catherine is "plain" then an awful lot of women should probably put a paper bag over their heads before they leave the house each day so they don't scare the children and dogs.

Have to agree with that one. Catherine is hardly plain in my opinion. She is quite a lovely young woman with grace and elegance. She is definitely not unfortunate looking.

I congratulate the Duchess on having avoided the celebrity/runway look. She is making a point of not being a fashionista. She looks lovely and happy.

I am wondering if what you are really saying is not that she is ugly but rather that Catherine is not a noted beauty a la Princess Grace, or fabulously photogenic like Princess Diana, both of whom would have looked fabulous in a sack, but is rather an attractive woman who is striving to establish her personal style, with somewhat mixed results . . . to date.

Unfortunately this is absolutely not the case! Whatever Catherine's personal beliefs nothing is going to alter the fact that If Catherine wears it, It is in style and whether it is High Street or Haute Couture, if she wears it, they will rerun and re-release it. In that respect she is the ultimate fashionista! Love or loathe her personal style, she is starting to set what is in fashion!

Hahaha! If I was to ask my friends who is the the most beautiful of the three, Catherine would win hands down. Maybe its a generational thing , I don't know but in my peer group of 20 somethings, Di Spencer and Grace Kelly wouldn't make the top top five. CP Mary even rates higher than Spencer and Kelly.

I think "plain" meant no charisma or "it" what of often defines people who get the coverage the dutchess gets.
She's an ordinary girl who married Prince William, thats all.

As this is a fashion thread I think it's okay for folks to express a view that they find her style unremarkable, but I hope we're not going to get into trading comments about her personality now.
