Today's outfit is really lovely. I think this is great look for her.

Although I'm still not fond of the bangs (they're a little too long), I like the way her hair is styled today.

Finally a professional look for Kate! This suit is appropraite for the type of emgagement and her age! Her hair is also appearing much better:fuller, not flat and pinned it back like that does wonder! Today Kate looked the matured woman on 33 years old she is.... not a teen or a girl in her early twenties! Well done...

The hair looks better....the style of the outfit is very nice....but the color is kinda blah.

Is the monochrome look the new thing this fall? Everything matches.

I think it being blah might have been on purpose. Notice she is wearing unusually small earrings as well and only her engagement+wedding rings as other jewellry.

Nice look but I agree that much tediousness. All the same color clothes, shoes, bag. The hair is very much better.

It was a professional visit to a prison. My opinion, this was a professional look and totally appropriate but I am no fashionista.

I like the look; very professional. I think when going to a prison, you may have to go through metal defectors, so wearing a lot of jewelry may be more hassle than it's worth.

This beige outfit reminds me of one she wore similar on the Canada tour straight after she was married i think it was by Marlene Birger. It is an appropriate look for the visit to the prison.
At the moment i have to look away from her hair i just can't bring myself to like it that much.

She doesn't tend to wear much jewelry anyway so to me it's not any more understated than her usual look.

I like the outfit, it's appropriate for the event...just it's a lot of grey, monochrome....since Sofia did this the other day with beige...that's why I asked about if this was a new thing for fall.

When I first saw this dress in a thumbnail, I though "typically appropriate, dull Kate." Then I saw larger photos and was wowed by the texture of the dress - which elevates it completely for me. The half peplum also worked to my eye. Very ladylike and lovely.

I think it might be a thing this fall but I'm not sure :P The thing that made me react on her jewellry is that even though she doens't wear alot of it she usually wears some sort of dangle earrings and I noticed that these weren't! :)

I agree, I loved the fabric! It was a classic and professional look with something little extra!

I like the outfit, it does need some pepping up but maybe not on this occasion. Having said that, Kate has a terrible posture and I hardly could see the half peplum due to the awkward holding of the clutch.

The suit was great for this event.
But not liking the bangs, he hair already hid her so much, now with the bangs she has more hair in her face

i thought the same thing! i liked that dress as well - but I think that was a lighter weight fabric.

LOVE this outfit, and the hair looks great, too. The only thing that would make me like it even more would be if it had a bit more color to it, but I realize it's perfectly appropriate for the occasion as it is.

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.
