Kate wears casual/ outdoor gear like no other royal IMO. I love the blouse she is wearing for the rainforest walk. She looks so comfortable in her clothes - Mind you her figure helps a little :)

She really does. I've always liked her casual style.

She's dressed for the event perfectly. That shade of her top is lovely on her. I like her hair pulled to the side, it looks good on her.

I love the blouse! The color is great on her. I thought she looked nice for the event.

I really liked Catherine's look for the rainforest. It was practical, comfortable and appropriate. The color of the blouse was very nice and the hair in the pony-tail, off to the side suited her.

Her hair was down and loose in the pictures I saw from the rain forest. Just one showed it to the side, looks like she pushed it that way from hiking.
I think her hairdresser should have arranged her hair in some kind of pony tail instead of loose, it looked hot and uncomfortable.

I don't know why she doesn't wear a French braid or something; much cooler.

The only reason I can think (beside vanity) that she does not do a pull back/pony more often is that it will tend to break the hair on the front sides.

But a loose french braid is a great solution!

Her hair was on a side pony tail when she got off the plane. When her hair was loose the pony tail holder (scrunchy?)was around her right wrist... At first I thought it was a bracelet). I think her hair came loose and she just left it til she could fix it again

she sure does rock casual wear. the blouse is lovely, perfect for a day like this.
unfortunately her hair does not react to humidity very well...

IMHO the print of this cotton dress (which strikes me as remarkably overpriced) is not pretty, rather of the retro kitchen table cloth variety, while the strange head piece looks very odd with it.
The side curls left and right are quite unflattering and a wrong choice anyway as it was a given that she would wear a welcome wreath which would compete with the hair.
Along with shoes which I don’t care for, this is perhaps my least favourite look from the tour so far.

I don't care for the print of the dress but the colours are quite nice. The dress also fits well and I like the cut. I don't get the hat/head piece, its not flattering nor is it a nice piece.

I do not understand the enthusiasm of the Kate's style. For me, it totally does not know how to dress. These shoes are disgusting, this dress is pretty but not for her...

She chooses a cheaper brands and it's praises, because there is a crisis, but some of the clothes in general it does not fit and it just looks like a 40 year old.
And her hair... the image shows the damaged hair - should be cut because it looks awfully messy

Well, so far she has not chosen 'cheaper brands' on this tour, and as far as I can see she didn't wear one single repeat, crisis or not - it's an all-new wardrobe with a lot of the pieces custom-made.
In the case of today's mismatched cotton dress, I'd say it has a nice fit, but certainly nothing about it suggests that it deserves its €1000 price tag.
In general I find 'enthusiasm' about her style not quite understandable either.

The welcoming dress is okay. It fits great and I do like the style of it - especially the back, but I'm not a fan of the pattern. I actually think the head piece is cute and works with the outfit.

I'm confused...what's so disgusting about her shoes?

People have different tastes. What may not be stylish to you, may be stylish to someone else. I happen to be one that really likes her style.

She changed into a strapless summer dress for the reception. I really like this outfit.

I very much like her in the Jonathan Saunders dress - I think the cut and colors really suit her.

I like the headpiece, but I don't think I like it very much with that dress.
