Oh, peplums have made a big comeback in the past, I don't know, three or four years. For a season or two, they were a big deal on the red carpet, but that's kind of faded a bit.
Yup. Peplums have definitely been in for a few years now. Kate's worn a few dresses or jackets with peplums on them in the past too.

I thought the dress was perfect for the occasion, but even so, Kate was criticized for wearing an expensive dress to meet women who probably could never afford a similar item.


Really, she can't win! If she'd worn a cheap dress, the same person would have said she was being condescending.

I like this look on Catherine very much - I can see how it could be accessorised for a more formal occasion with, say, burgundy hat, gloves and shoes. I'm so glad she has gone for a more structured, fitted look!

I think she struck a nice balance. The clothes were nice and professional and up to par with her role, but they were rather "plain" in colour. I think she did nicely, there will always be someone complaining.!

I'm reminded of the Queen Mother's visit to the bombed-out East End during the Blitz. When someone questioned her elegant manner of dress, she said, I'm sure they would have worn their best clothes if they came to visit me.
At any rate, the women who met her today would have been disappointed if she had show up in jeans and a sweater. (Remember the schoolkids several years ago who didn't think Kate was a princess because of the casual way she was dressed?)

The hair-fingering and head-tossings to keep the coiffure out of her eyes and off her face are very distracting and unprofessional.

Huh? Is this a general comment or specifically related to Kate's appearance today? Because I just went back and looked through all of the pictures from today, and the only time I saw her touch her hair was in a short video clip, where you can see her brush her hair behind her hear for a split second (which seemed quite normal/practical rather than unprofessional in any way). Personally, the only think I noticed about her hair today is that she seems to have had a good blow out, as her hair looks nice and full.

She looked very nice and professional I can imagine choosing an outfit for this visit took some time because you want to look nice but not too nice; bring some color but not over the too flashy. I think she struck a good balance even down to the beige shoes. And I for one love how she holds her purses, she's been doing that for years; I recall hearing somewhere that such a pose is an unconscious defense mechanism.

The Duchess looks lovely.

I'm not sure what to think of her hair, one moment I love it and the next I want her to go the the hairdresser as soon as possible..

I agree, I think this dress could really work well with more distinct accessories, but on this occasion a very elegant ensemble was ruined by her usual hairdo.

I have to admit I see very little difference in her hair. It is still all over the place and in her face.

Although I'm still not fond of the bangs (they're a little too long), I like the way her hair is styled today.
She looks absolutely lovely and elegant. The outfit is very beautiful and sophisticated.

I love the outfit Catherine wore to the prison. The colours match perfectly and suit her well. I'm still not a fan of her bangs though, I stand by my original comment of them making her look older than she actually is. I hope she reverts back to her original hair (though I will give her that her current hairstyle seems tidier and less in her face than the old one, but she can't help that, curly hair looks pretty but is a nightmare - I should know).

You mean "coiffure"?

I agree. She looks very trim and smart. Nice. Her long hair just works for her.

I'm not a fan of the trousers Catherine wore to the rugby match. The outfit also feels too casual for me, though everyone else is wearing casual clothes so I guess it's appropriate. Personally I would've worn jeans instead.

I agree about the leggings, I'm not a fan of them being worn on anyone unless they are at the gym or performing ballet.
