Great hairstyle - here is a more detailed picture.

Red and Black are the regional colors so a really appropriate look.


This suit is the best so far, very chic and still lady like. I love her style this
today, a nice change. She really looks great in red, even when she was descending the plane upon arrival with PG, she looked fabulous in that outfit. There is such a change this time around, more self-confident, more self awareness and genuine warmth in her actions, this time she isn't afraid of doing something wrong like before. I like what she is becoming, and a good role model for young girls to look up to. Wish I was in NZ to see that beauty of the places that they are seeing.....great looking country!

Looks like the Duchess of Cambridge is recycling the Luisa Spangoli red suit she wore to her and the Duke’s visit to St. Andrews in 201.
I think it is an entirely new suit as the top looks like it fits far better and the skirt is longer. Now you can take up a hem but it is rare to be able to let one down without it looking rough and there is seldom that much hem to let down.

But that lovely pencil skirt isn't holding her back any and nor are her shoes!

You have to admire someone who is willing to get down and (possibly) get dirty.

Love this suit. It's stunning. It's easily one of my faves. Glad to see her wear it again!

I like what she did with her hair.

Perhaps she's grown into the top a bit (not unusual to change after becoming a mother) or more likely the top has been fitted to her better, last outing was when she was first engaged. As for the longer skirt, it's clearly about 1" or maybe 2" longer than in 2011, a skirt will fall lower if you've lost weight or it's possible the original hem was wide enough to accomplish that, or perhaps it is a new longer pencil skirt. Did anyone get a good look at the multi color bracelet she was wearing?
edit:I'm leaning towards new skirt - compare this http://whatkatewore.com/tag/kate-aqu...-rhumba-boots/ with this http://paimages.co.uk/preview/?urn=2.19561854

Best outfit of the tour so far. If Kate had done something with her hair, I'd give it 10/10.

Imo this is the perfect skirt length for her. She looks elegant in a pencil skirt

Are we looking at the same pictures? She did something with her hair...

Queen Rania has long brown hair but it's never so overwhelming as with Kate. Imo it would be better if it were straight and hanging down her back. I don't like the cocker spaniel look of 2 big curly parts next to her face.

The suit looks good, it fits which is a bonus. It is the second most interesting thing she's worn for me this tour, and like DOM if she'd done something with that mane it would have been even better.

Lovely suit and I love the belt with it. Her hair looks good twisted on the sides. I agree with a few posters that this is the best look so far.

Elegant from head to toe.
Red and black is such a good color combination- so classy.
Like I said in the trip thread, one of the two best outfits so far.

Catherine looks wonderful! Red is such a strong colour and looks good on her. At first I didn't particularly like her belt with the suit, but when I took another glance at it, I decided that I'm giving it the thumbs up. I also really like her hairstyle, very pretty.

On another note, I like how Catherine is wearing a lot of ferns during her visit to New Zealand. Very thoughtful.

The red looks good on her but the outfit itself is more suited for someone 15 years older.

She's rocking this look, and I love what she did with her hair.

Whilst the outfit is in no way "on trend", I think it is just fine for the occasion: a classic design, the right colours for the location, from the depths of the wardrobe, and no need to buy newer expensive clothes.

Goodbye NZ

I like the suit very much, as usual flying hair & bad posture.

Both departure and arrival outfits are beautiful.
Just don't like the nude platform shoes.

George squirms like he wants to escape, cute. I wonder if they dressed him on purpose to look like his dad when he first visited Australia.

I like the departure suit, although frayed edges on an outfits always make it look unfinished to me. Never makes sense.

I would have preferred the arrival dress to be all yellow, the white patches add nothing. It's also not a very fitted dress which IMO doesn't suit Catherine. It's a bold colour, which I do love.
