Pretty, nothing terribly exciting. Is it just me or does Kate look like she's not feeling very well?

She looks tired. Can't say I am a fan of her hairstyle but the dress is nice.

The dress is ok, I like the colour better than the tailoring.

I don't like the hairstyle at all.

I agree, the hairstyle is rather fussy for a day time engagement with children.

The hair is still really poor and I don't like the vermillon colour at all I quite liked the blue previosly but this is untidy IMO

The dress is okay. Don't really have an opinion on it besides it seems to be a little too loose. But omg that hair. Like who taught her how to curl her hair?!

Nice colour of the dress. As usual, it is lovely to see the Duchess of Cambridge out and about. However, I'm going off retro styles now and wish that she would too. Her beautiful hair is styled in a bit of a dodgy way. Catherine appears to be slouching rather a lot - shoulders back dear!

I really like the color of the dress. At first I thought I didn't like the style of it, but then I realized that it's mainly just the metal bit on the belt that I'm not fond of. And I actually like the hairstyle - nice to see her try something a bit different, and I think it sets off the dress well.

Given that Kate can generally look good in anything, I do think she hasn't wowed or surprised us for a long time. I generally like what she wears but I'm finding her outfits so boring and safe. I don't want her to do anything ridiculous, but I would like to see a stronger statement in her clothes. I really think she needs some inspiration with regard to her hair- there is something almost childish in the way she wears it and today is perhaps the worst example of this I can recall.

I have to agree with all your observations, although in my opinion being on the "safe" side does not have to be "boring". I think she has yet to find "her style" for each occasion.

The dress per se is all right. Catherine's, The Duchess of Cambridge, posture and makeup leave much to be desired.

Today's dress is lovely. Great color and style. Catherine looked very elegant in it, without being over-the-top.

Dress is very nice, fits well, nice gathers on the bodice and good length and really gorgeous color. The shoes look very nice too, not clunky. Her hairdo however was really among the worst I've seen her wear, it does look childish, I agree.

Thus no press and only what appear to be snaps from a cell phone of Catherine and none of William. We don't know the nature of the meeting, but we can assume that neither Catherine or William were making a presentation. I don't know what type of meetings you frequent, but IME her dress is entirely appropriate for a daytime meeting in a professional office environment and much like I would see in less formal working business meetings and among the audience at conferences or presentations - particularly if the weather is warm. To criticize her choice of dress for this private meeting w/out even knowing the exact nature of the event or seeing how other attendees (if any) dressed seems to me to demonstrates a bias against the Duchess rather than being some kind of opinion or observation based on evidence.

One of the most noticeable things about her appearance is, not surprisingly, her hair and it's return to the dreaded "Sausage" curls which look delightful on a small child. On a mature woman, not so much.

I think the heavy eyeliner in natural sunlight is what makes her look tired and as the day passes, her hair straightens out making a heavy curtain which lengthens her face and often makes her look quite drawn.

I am glad others are noticing the that Catherine is beginning to slouch most of the time and it doesn't help the way her clothes sit. Tailoring may look bad when the problem is just the way she sits, stands and walks.

With the particular dress, we see a return to the "moveable waisteline" which I am assuming is a result of her being long waisted and the dress being not! (Either that, or . . .) This is one of the best shots of that particular phenomenon.

We all have different opinion and I stick to my opinion. Whether this was a private meeting or not, I still find her dress pretty casual. Im not saying she needs hair done, a fancy suit/dress on but something more appropriate. I personally wouldn't think of attending an office meeting, conference in such an outfit. Iw would wear that to the park or run errands but then as I said we can agree or disagree and many people in such matters might think it is appropriate and other not.
