I like the colours but the coat looks heavy and bulky, not very flattering. Kate looks stressed out and haggard, hair as usual no comment.

It's not her best. But tragic?

I see. I visited Scotland and liked a cool summer very much. Hopefully a cold spell will end soon.

Don't like it all. The fabric, the stripes, she reminds me of a piece of fruit but I can't think which. I want to say strawberry.
I know what it is. A blob of raspberry jelly.
I hope that isn't too unkind, but it is what it really makes me think of.

Here's Tom and Lorenzo's (snarky) take on it

I don't see her as being haggard and stressed.

I don't like this outfit at all. The coat is too big on her and once again she seems to be hiding behind a big coat and her curtain of her. The brooch, however nice, was very badly used: not only it's hidden behind the hair, it's also badly positioned. She should have worn another coat to make it shine. Bad choice.

I love the shade of red, but that's about it.

A half updo for her hair, and it would have been altogether a perfect outfit for the weather and occasion.

I don't think the coat is nice. The color (I hate red) to the fit. It doesn't really fit like a glove.

What is the deal with coat dresses anyway?

I like this coat on her, the rosy red is perfect. The shading of the reds is unusual and yet it's a very pretty coat. Over all, it's a nice outfit for the day out in Scotland where I hear it's a bit chilly. She looks very tired/stressed and completely worn out, I hope the press leaves her alone....

Love the coat, looks like mohair to me, and the color. But not on her. Would look better on a blonde, and the hair ruins the striping effect, imo.
For once, she really does look tired to me.

I like the coat, but worn with a belt, like in the catwalk

I don't really like the red coat. But what really bugs me is I can't put my finger on what exactly I don't like about it.

Actually, looking at it again the coat reminds me of a blanket with that pattern.

Now that you mention it, I think we had a woolen blanket with that kind of pattern back in USSR. It was itchy, and I hated it. Now wonder I'm not so fond of the coat. Brings back awful childhood memories (I still have no problem with the shade of red, however).

The coat per se isn't that bad, it's not stylish enough though. The sleeves are rather bulky, I think.
With passion and poetry...

she looks great as usual. is that a new fascinator? the coat is very appropriate for today's event, and i liked how she styled it this time, rather than in australia with the ponytail...
