Goodbye NZ blue suit really dreadful with the dull color and back zipper. Made her look much too skinny.
The yellow dress was fab, thankfullly changes were made to orginal. LOVE a square neckline and she looks great in that, plus hair back a little made all the difference. Necklines and ability to see the face is so important in a public figure.
George is simply too, too much. I can't get enough of him!

Like the dress and it suits her. I could never wear it but she looks delightful and cool on a warm day. Right balance of dressy enough for the occasion versus too casual.

Also - not blazer/breton top/skinnies combo which I like but would prefer a change.

I loved her take on the yellow dress. The squared off neckline suited her so much more than the original as did the reversal of colours. It seems to have been chosed with steps and stairs in mind. The only reservation I have is the appearance of the ubiquitous neutral/beige/blah LK Bennett Sledge heels. Couldn't she not have forgotten them when she packed

I loved this look and thought it looked cool and elegant, but . . .

Oh dear, it looks like furniture or curtaining material and . . .

I don't know what it is about those wedges but every time she wears them it ruins her posture and tends to lead with her head.

The print of the dress looks lovely in close up pics but perhaps a little busy in the long shots . I like the style but I wonder is it the same pair of wedges every time - or maybe she has several identical pairs.

Lovely dress with a flattering and simple fit to it. I just wish she had her hair in a ponytail to highlight the dresses collar which is hidden with her hair.

Unfortunately we've only seen one ponytail on the tour so far but I think it would showcase a lot of her outfits.

I think the dress is very flattering. I really like the pattern.

I'm not a big fan of wedgies but these are okay. I am constantly amazed at how graceful she is. I would be falling off my heels several times a day if I wore the shoes she wears-- and that is just walking. I don't dig holes, play cricket, etc...

The dress is absolutely gorgeous! The wedges are too high, she does not need them.

Lovely dress which suits her, most would look very wide in that pattern.

Those wedges should really be burned, there are so many other shoes in the world!

what about a t-strap?

I can't get excited about this. They are reasonably fashionable shoes, she clearly likes them, she is continuing to recycle them and get her money's worth..... what is the problem here?

I like the dress, but not the wedges.

The DVF dress is very pretty on the Duchess. The wedges I don't mind with this dress, since I tend to think that wedges go with casual wrap dresses. And William actually looks cute with his jeans on. Great outing for them. Can't wait for the zoo visit.

She looked very pretty even if the dress is nothing special IMO. It reminds me of this Erdem she wore during her pregnancy.I don't know why though:

Kate Middleton Photos - Kate Middleton Visits a Primary School - Zimbio

The only thing that bothers me : Why is STILL wearing those horrible wedges? Sorry but there's an occasion for everything and it wasn't ideal to were such shoes high on a mountains! At the vinyard she almost slipped and today she didn't have a go because of her shoes. She said the same thing when she didn't try badmington in October at Sportsaid and she specifically said itwas due to her shoes.

I like this outfit. It's different for her and the wedges are a nice touch. Very simple and elegant.
