I love the blue dress and matching clutch and shoes. I wish I could find a picture with a better view of the earrings and necklace. She looks terrific.

Her clothes are nice and appropriate but that's it, never anything special and more power to her for not giving info a shallow media's demands for her to be their barbie.
My only critique are those tea cozy hats I can't stand d then and don't think they look good on her.
I assume you're talking about Queen Mathilde of Belgium?

A thought occurred to me moments ago that because Catherine's engagements are few and far between at the moment, so are her engagement outfits. As such I think the frustration builds up a bit as we wait for the next outing and our expectations are heightened more than they normally might be.
When Catherine's role expands and we see her virtually every day, the odd disappointing outfit won't matter so much.
I have to admit that Catherine's wardrobe always seems incomplete without a brooch. She have a beautiful Harry Winston Polar Bear Diamond Brooch she received on the Canadian tour and she hasn't worn it yet.

Catherine looks lovely in blue. The dress she chose for today does look familiar, but maybe it's just me. In any case, she looked appropriate and nice.

I said at the time that she would probably never wear that pin!
The design was rather casual but it was set with diamonds. Betwixt and between, not really suitable for anything.

Crown Princess Victoria also wore the same dress in white for the ordination of Sweden's first female archbishop on 15 June 2014

Tom and Lorenzo: Cathy's OK, but Will and Harry are lacking..

Cathy Cambridge and the Case of the Recycled Frock | Tom & Lorenzo Fabulous & Opinionated

"Dear God, the men in that family do not know how to get a suit fitted, do they? Harry’s jacket is too long and both it and the pants are too full. Will’s jacket is a skosh too short and it gives him ladyhips. No wonder Cathy doesn’t overdo it on the style front. With these two as her co-stars, she only needs to show up in something that fits correctly and she’s won the day."

love this - particularly as it is so true!

And "skosh" - my US friend Judy uses that phrase but I've never seen it in print. Now I know how to spell it!

Oh dear, both William and Harry do look a hot mess. It is particularly noticeable on Harry after seeing him in his well tailored best dress uniform.

I wonder if either of them have have actually had a bespoke suit since they joined the military, because if they have their tailors should be run out of town.

Best to get Charles on the job. Whatever the currant fashion his suits are always impeccably tailored and, as he says, he comes into fashion every 20 odd years and last time round I think he scored higher than his sons on the Best Dress lists.

Perhaps Catherine really doesn't want to show the brothers up.

2013 GQ 50 Best Dressed Men: Charles 8th, William 37th. Say no more!

Really? I found it very suitable. William may not wear his cufflinks but I think Catherine would wear the brooch. Perhaps during the winter or a Canadian event.

I thought the blue was boring the first time and even duller this occasion there as those who will say ... It isn't about the dress but the ocassion... and so on and they maybe correct but this is a boring dead dull dress IMO and I just don't care what the engagement is ... and the hair .. I just cannot say how annoying I find her fiddling with it pull it back something .. horror IMO.

I think I prefer it in blue, but it is a nice dress, simple yet elegant. I think it flatters them both.

Yes, the white version of Catherine's blue dress is very nice indeed and I wouldn't mind seeing her in it (with a brooch of course). It could be teamed up with almost any coloured hat she wishes.

I'm getting a little tired of seeing Catherine in bright blue (even though it is a lovely color on her). It would be nice to see her in the white version of the dress. I like the style details of it, and she at least can wear a necklace, since she shies away from wearing brooches!

I don't like Victoria's dress especially not with the black hat. In blue you can see better details.
