I love the pink dress. One of the best looks, if not the best. So far.

Not a good look for her imo. Agree with a lot of previous remarks about blah look, could have used a brooch , a bit low cut for day, and especially that the cut doesn't do much for her long waisted shape. A belt, even self samed could have helped that. Also, I prefer her in strong colors.
She seems to have lost a lot of weight on this tour and really is looking thin. That could have impacted the odd hemline on the skirt. The skirt is really lovely.
Do like the way her hair is back and is making an effort with the hair.
Hope we get to see PG!

Today's green CW dress -Holy cow- that is, well, bright.
Baroness, your description of a lime was not far off at all.
Do not like it at all.

The Duchess of Cambridge's Daytime Fashion Part 13: April 2014 -

Well there won't be any complaints about revealing necklines today. Kate is zipped up to nearly her throat in this bright green outfit. She has apparently commented she feels very warm in what she is wearing. This is one of my least favourite looks of the tour so far.

Don't quite understand why she's wearing this coat dress when she's told many reporters that she's "sweltering".

Where a light summer dress instead then?

I like the fact she's wearing colour, that's about it.

Love the color of the green coat but I don't like that its a front zipper and the top part looks like a body/wet suit fit to me. My least favorite on the tour.

I agree with posters, if she felt warm why didnt she wear a dress instead with a jacket?

Not a fan of this coat dress. The color is too high combined that fact that she zipped it all the way up make her look uncomfortable.

A woman in the crowd who spoke to her noted that it was an usually warm day. Apparently that area is usually quite windy and Catherine prepared for that- and then it turned out the weather was different than expected.

I like the color but I don't like the zipper in the front or the neckline. It's unfortunate that she didn't check the weather report; she does look uncomfortable. I would be surprised if she didn't have back-up outfits.

Well, at least she's got two choices for next St. Patrick's Day! And while the green is bright, I do like her in these vibrant colors. I can visualize a short-sleeved dress with a cream-colored jacket in that heat as a better choice. And the long hair with the zipper and long sleeves gives this outfit a very heavy look.

I love the shade of green on Catherine. Don't care for the zipper.

Not a green girl myself but I do think both serve the purpose .. but why 2 green dresses in one day ?? I think that is a bit weird only IMO though.

They weren't in one day. She's worn 2 green outfits on the trip.
We were just comparing them.

Yup. I didn't like the green dress either. The zipper thing is awful.

I wonder what are the chances we might see the Wattle brooch tomorrow? It is a fitting engagement on a significant day, plus there would be a nice symmetry to the tour as she arrived wearing the "NZ Fern " and could complete her engagements wearing the "Aussie Wattle".

The pink outfit also addresses the "long-waisted" look that others have mentioned - gives her a nice silhouette. I think it's a little pale, trying to think what it would be like to go from such a pale pink to two bright green outfits within such a short span of time (I wouldn't like looking at the outfits in the same closet, myself...)

Does she wear Kelly green (or whatever shade we want to call that) so often? Or this is a recent trend?
