Unfortunately she doesn't seem to have them. That's why she's so often caught by the wind.

I don't like this coat. That huge belt is awful. This is one of the ocasions where she seems to be hiding from the world inside a big coat and that curtain of hair.

I didn't think her pink coat was too revealing or vulgar at all, although I do think the neckline was lower than usual. I think some have reacted the way they did because we're used to seeing Catherine wear clothes with fairly high V necks, and I think we're just trying to adjust to an alternative. That aside, I generally think she looked very elegant and sophisticated that day.

I prefer her green coat from today than her previous one she wore, although the colour is a little bright for my taste. I know this sounds picky, but the buckle on her coat is a little large IMO. A smaller one would've been much better.

That green is her color. A hairstyle would have helped the look, pulled a little back at least. Love anything Catherine Walker, she looks terrific.

Today's suit and hat

I like the fifty-ish or is it forty-ish"?- vibe of this suit and hat. She wears a vintage look well.

Coat is not bad but that hat looks ridiculous!

The outfit is very reminiscent of a "coat-frock" (as it was termed) my mother had in around 1956-57.

I'm also not a fan of the hat. But what a great coat dress!

Didn't like the neckline of the green coat. I hope she will have it altered.

I loved the taupe dress she wore a few days ago. That colour looks so great with her skintone. It highlighted her face together with the,warm colours of the Australian weather.

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

The coat dress is lovely- a pleasant change to see a patterned coat. The style is very flattering to her figure and the length is perfect for her. Not so keen on the hat, but when Kate wears her hair down and framed round her face getting the proportion right is tricky.

I like the hat, I think it's cute. It's a perfect outfit for the occasion.

I don't like the hat--but I like the color.

The hat is by an Australian designer, Jonathan Howard; that is probably why Kate chose it.
She has been criticized for not wearing more clothing by local designers.

The coat is really nice and I don't mind the hat, but she has worn nicer ones. She sure went for color coordinating today.

That hat is heinous. I like the coat dress though it's not a favorite of mine.

There was a lot of mis-identification of the Kors coat. Many tweets calling out both Walker and Tom Ford? LOL.
I thought it perfect for the occasion. You could find her in the crowd but she was not the natural center of attention.

I really like the tweed coat but that hat was too small and I dislike the Winged Mercury-type protusions. And what a shame that the lovely poppy brooch was obscured by the falling hair.

Hats and where they're worn

I, like many women, seldom find an occasion to wear a hat, unless it's cold or sunny. Are hats like Catherine's or fascinator-style hats worn in the US? I obviously don't move in the circles where they are worn- if they are.
