Beautiful dress! Exquisite design. One of my favorites so far.

I'm really liking all the Temperley dresses she's worn so far...well all of her dresses really except not a fan of the peplum on the red print dress, can't remember the designer of that one, a Packham perhaps?

the red dress is very lovely and works well, especially because they are in India

I really like the color on the green dress, and her hair, so much better

Love both of these dresses on Catherine. The jade color and design of the second one and her hair is fabulous.

Those long and lovely dresses

I must admit I am covetous of Catherine's daytime dresses. Back in the day in my hippie days, I wore very similar ones.

I like both of the dresses that she wore today. Her hair looks nice for both occasions but I really do like the updo.

Yes this style of updo really suits her.

I really like the red dress a lot. The print is great on her and the color. I like she did a half up do as well. I love that she is showing she can in fact wear flats (would have been great if she had worn them with the cricket dress instead of wedges).

The only thing that bothers me is the color of the shoes doesn't seem to go with the outfit. They almost look like they were intended for the cricket dress as they would have gone with the more subdued colors better then this dress.

As for the green. I Absolutely LOVE the color of the dress. Her hair is great, and her earrings as well. The over all length and style of the dress is great but I am not a lace fan, and the patterned lace and how it is laid out on the dress is a bit distracting for me (too much). But over all still a great look, though she needs some support.

This has been a fun tour for fashion. All of the bright colors (save the white dress) and prints! It makes me wonder how she will re-wear many of these outfits as they are so memorable. It's not a bad problem to have!

I seriously adore the red dress. Not a huge fan of the green Temperley but it's OK. I think it could somehow be styled a little more, maybe a different pair of shoes, or some bangles or something in her hair. This trip would provide the perfect opportunity for some hair ornaments, flowers, whatever.

I'm not sure if I should feel uncomfortable that she wore a very inexpensive dress to meet the poor kids, and a very expensive one for lunch. I'm not uncomfortable with it, and I don't know what the solution would be. I do think she looks great, and appropriate and I love the fact that she went with flats for once.

As to the problem that we cannot talk about...getty images has a photo that is a bit more revealing than the other ones I've seen.

I understand the dresses and the costs. It doesn't bother me. I think even if she had been back in the UK, and visiting any children, it would have been the same. It speaks more to the event itself then to the wealth of the people she is visiting. If she was home in the UK, you would expect her to wear something fancier to have lunch with the PM, then what she wore to visit say a school.

Not sure if this is inappropriate for this thread, but I came across a lovely series of images of Jackie Kennedy in India, circa 1962. How times have changed!

This is a fashion issue because undergarments can make or break an outfit.

However, if someone started talking about her body itself, that would be a problem IMO.

lol Wyevale, thank you for that
I'm conflicted about the green (is it almost turquoise?) dress, way too much lace IMO, and I love lace, and the vertical strips on the bodice are not flattering, bad choice there. The trim at the neck and wrists looks uncomfortable. I love her hair up like this, really suits her, and love the earrings. Those nude pumps need to go in the bin with the wedges though.

Not a miss today. I really like both dresses. A more fun style suits her really well

I like both caftans/tunics that Kate wore today. I really think this should be a look she ought to choose more often, because it complementes her style so well: neated shapes but with intricate and interesting motives.

No sure about the turquoise/green dress. That high collar should go.

Since we don't know what kind-if any-undergarment she is wearing, or if there is one built into her dress, we are, in effect, talking about her body.

They call them unmentionables for a reason, and unless we are talking about a black bra with a white dress, there is no reason to mention them.

As my southern lady grandmother said, "no lady should ever mention her unmentionables, or those of another lady."

This was my thought as well! I love the red dress.

I like the edge of blue at the end of the sleeves. This color blue contrasts quite well with the red.
