I liked the Catherine wore today except her hat which I wasn't mad about.

I love the coat. Very beautiful and elegant. I dislike her hat however.

I hate when she plonks a small hat onto her head when her hair is hanging long and loose, no matter how nice the hat in question is it is never going to look good when it's sitting on top of untidy hair. She does this a lot and today was another example. Small hats only ever look good with an updo, Kate has worn them with updo's before and the effect is like night and day when compared to when her hair is just hanging there, even when it is half up and half down it is a big improvement yet she still returns time and again to the look she had today, I can't understand it.

See I disagree. I think small hats look good on loose hair and I honestly don't see anything untidy about her hair today.

I usually like the small hats/fascinators that she wears, but I didn't care for the one she wore today. I think it was the netted veil that ruined it.

Meh, I think they look nice. Pronounced brows are very in right now so it's nice to see her experimenting a bit :)

The Duchess of Cambridge's Daytime Fashion Part 16: September 2015 -

To those who think Catherine's hair is "untidy," I have some Aqua Net shares of stock I'd like to sell you. It seems as though everyone with hair down is labeled "untidy."

News flash: we're not in the land of helmet hair, and this isn't the 1960s. Long or medium length hair worn down is not untidy. Fine wispy hair worn down is not untidy. These categories are NORMAL hair.

It's a good thing the Duchess did not wear a large hat, she and Maxima would have had a dueling match going on. I do think she looks good in a large hat, she wore one to William's graduation and looked lovely. Wearing a small hat is much easier and "safer" getting in and out of cars (and standing next to others in large hats).

I agree casualfan. Her hair is pulled back from her face but is hanging loose. It's brushed and is back off of her shoulders. I fail to see how this is described as "untidy."

While I do not agree that Catherine's hair was "untidy", it was a definite miss in style. If she was wearing an Ascot-appropriate fascinator, such a hairstyle would not have been a miss. However, even though her hat is relatively small, it is an actual hat which looks to be made of black felt with a velvet finish, possibly to compliment her rather over-busy coat.

But a hat like that deserves an updo which could have lightened her whole ensemble. Instead, the straightened hair seemed to draw her face down and make her look draggingly tired.

I agree! Small hats/headpieces look so much better with hair up and we have seen it on her and it does make the biggest difference.

I liked her look the hat was a hat which is good and the coat was not just plain black and had some interest.

Why was she wearing a 'widow's veil'?

I understand the remembrance service is to honor those that died in War but neither her husband, nor her father, nor her brother died in a war.

Is she in mourning? Did a close family member die that was not made public?

What are you talking about? It's just a piece of decorative veil on a hat. It's not like her face was covered.

If that's a widows veil then there was thousands of people at the Melbourne cup in mourning 😂😂

The black veil covered her eyes.
It reminded me of the hat Camilla wore to her father's funeral.

The black veil showed her eyes. I could see them. Could you not? Just wondering.

Exactly. It was even thinner at the top to show the eyes!
