I love the look with the coat. The coat is stylish and looks great on her

The dress underneath is mixed. I like the color, and the interesting neckline. But it looks wrinkled, like it needs a good steam.

The pink is lovely. The only thing that bothers me is the neckline. Yes, it may not be as sexual as it would be on a woman with not such a flat chest, but I still find a neckline that shows the side of the breasts, inappropriate for a day event, when she is meant to look professional representing her charity and the RF.

The coat and the dress are lovely pieces and Im glad she wore them again but together, it doesn't work. The coat is casual elegant, the dress is cocktail. I do get that she took it off later but there was no balance Imo of the looks.


The pink skirt and top was lovely for the later event but since she had open hair in the morning, I think she should've had a different hair style like a ponytail or even a soft bun. I thought her shoes were boring, it's spring, she could've worn sandals to give it a young and spring feel.

It was borderline evening event though. Considering the jewelry and such and it's on a museum. Seems like a more "glamourous" evening-ish event than the standard day event.

I loved seeing the pink McQueen get used again. Lovely ensemble, perfect for the warm evening we had yesterday.

The neckline did not bother me ar all, thus is London, nor Saudi Arabia!

i've always liked this pink combination and also her beautiful roksanda lilac dress that she wore in the morning. less so the kors coat, but overall, i thought these were great recycles! those two beautiful dresses deserved more outings :)

I would have to agree that the neckline is inappropriate for the occasion however Catherine marches to the beat of her own drum and definitely her own sense of propriety. Regardless, that really has turned into her "signature style" and we are at liberty to like it or not.

Comments about Saudi Arabia are insulting to other posters and merely emphasise a lack of sound argument in support of Catherine's preferred style.

I cannot understand why anyone could be offended by the V neck on Catherine's dress. Good Heavens Camilla regularly exposes real cleavage in some of her dresses. There is nothing lacking in propriety AT ALL about that dress/neckline. It seems like, yet again, there are those who have to find something to criticize with regard to Catherine.

It was completely appropriate, well fitted and stylish and the neckline comments scream "desperately looking for something to criticize"

She looked very pretty in pink McQueen dress but honestly her shoes (not just this pair) are so boring....I would like to see her in some pumps but with a subtle twist to lift up her look a bit. Normally her clothes are bland enough, her mostly bland pumps just double the blandness in her look...

The only desperation I see is in her die hard supporters who tear down anyone who dare not to think Kate walks on roses

Day or evening, this was a work event. A V-neck where you show the sides of a woman's breasts (not just the top of the breasts), is too deep IMO. Would you show your breasts like that at your office? I highly doubt it. This is a work event.

But I guess that means I think women should wear burkhas. I mean we are being accused of holding women to Saudi standards.

We are all entitled to our opinions. These belittling attacks on people who don't kiss Kate's feet are low.

I guess everyone have different standards for what constitutes "too much skin". This little skin on a rather flat chested woman on a evening event for me is no deal at all.

One of my favorite outfits from the Australian tour so I was happy to see it being worn again for the National Portrait Gallery event.

I agree; not that fond of the coat but really like the dresses.

I see nothing objectionable about the neckline, and the pink shade was so soft and pretty!

The pink dress is as inappropriately low-cut now as it was before - in my opinion.

I've never liked the low-cut neckline of this dresss that would be very pretty without the plunging neckiline. I don't think it was an appropriate look for the visit at the gallery, as it wasn't appropriate for a visit among children back in 2014.

May 16, 2016 - Catherine today in a printed skirt, white top, black pumps and clutch.


The whole look is lovely. I think this is such a light outfit, young and age appropriate. Hope to see more outfits like this. I was getting tired of all the coats and dresses.

The skirt is form Banana Republic and the blouse is from Goat.

I was almost sure that Katw would wear something smart, polished and fine today, and she did not dissapointed. I think that simple blouses and long skirts are really becoming her trademark, and she should stick to it. Especially for daytime duties. She looks great!
