Well I would much rather see a petticoat than her bare butt. I've seen the queen's "slip". Can you imagine if she didn't wear a petticoat? A black petticoat with the Ralph Lauren dress would have been fine with...two more buttons on that dress.

In general, it seems to me that Kate's long hair and long legs are traits of hers that she seems to like. I think many (if not most) people have certain aspects of their appearance that they favor, and I think sometimes people stick to those highlighting those things because they might feel they detract form other areas that they find less flattering. Much as it drives some people crazy, Kate seems comfortable with her hair and her legs, and I don't really anticipate her to make any changes in those areas any time soon.
The issue with the slit is how far it goes up on the thigh....nothing to do with how good her legs are, that's beside the point. You don't expect to see that type of slit on a day dress while working.

If the dress is lined she doesn't need a slip.

To me, it has to do with how good her legs are in the sense that I think she's comfortable with showing a little bit of leg. I don't see anything wrong with that, or anything the least bit inappropriate with what she's wearing. Obviously, though, people have different experiences and different perspectives on what they think is appropriate. What I expect to see and what you expect to see are likely quite different.

A slit showing over halfway up the thigh is inappropriate for a working environment...unless something major has changed in work attire the past 6 months.

Moving away from the slit discussion, I thought Kate's hair was better today . The bangs/fringe were to the side not falling in her eyes like yesterday.

It depends where you're working, what you're doing, etc. (a "working environment" can mean a very wide range of things. Attire has varied widely in the different places I've worked.) However, as there increasingly fewer "rules" when it comes to fashion, a lot of what's considered appropriate is in the eye of the beholder. And Kate doesn't exactly have a regular job in a workplace where there might be a specific tone set - she's not there to blend in. It's just a case of different strokes for different folks, I think.

I don't like the bangs...I think they are at an odd length. If they were shorter or longer I think they'd be ok. Really I've always liked her hair before...this is the first time I've not really liked the style.

I learned from blog posting about yesterday's engagement that a lot of woman go thru a post baby hair loss especially around the hair line. So maybe that's why the bangs to cover up the fine hairs growing back after the hair loss. We have seen her hair like this before and it didn't stay so come later this fall. It's probably going to be different.

What's with the "bare butt" comments? Once, maybe twice Kate has had a malfunction due to the wind .... I don't see that as requiring "bare butt" accusations.

Exactly! I personally find some of the "cleavage" showing on some people far more offensive than showing a bit of leg.

I think she's had an extraordinary number of exposures. If she utilized fashion precautions she wouldn't have to worry. Even when she arrived at the Anna Freud Institute, she gets out of the car and awkwardly grabs the back of her dress to avoid another disaster. When she's so paranoid about it too, maybe it's time to rethink her fashion "foundation". It would make everyone more comfortable.

BTW, I think the actual count is upwards of five though...

If there had been only one or clothing malfunctions no one would say much about it...but there's been well over that number.

Over half way up the thigh is more than a 'bit' of leg.

Over half way up the thigh is standard skirt lenght for many people, especially in the summer. I understand that she can't have that skirtlength but her flashing that high for a second is a non-issue to me. I myself like to have longer skirts but I think things have changed alot and a little leg is no big deal. I guess it can be a generational issue.

I agree ... but, if it is a "generational issue" I'm one swingin' old lady.

Because 'many people' wear something doesn't mean it's appropriate. The DoC is not just a regular person. While working (as she was) she represents the monarchy.

I'm under 50, I have a number of friends under 50 (and family) who would agree. It's not generational.

Well.. Maybe I should refrase it. Most people wear short shorts and skirts nowdays (and this is coming from me who doesnt). I'm in my early 20s so to me you are in another genration/my mothers generation and such. So I think what "many people" do have something to do with this discussion since it is a mark of what is acceptable. Your parents probably was shocked about some of your hairstyles just like your grandparents were shocked over your mothers skirtlenghts. Kate's clothing in general magazines are coined as modest, and I think that she dresses nicely. Noone died from seeing a bit of thigh.

Yeah, to me, seeing a bit of leg is fine. I mean, it's not as if she's wearing hot pants or something. I actually don't even notice how much leg Kate is or isn't showing until people start mentioning it on here, and then I realize how different people's expectations can be. Some of it I do think is generational, but not always, of course.
