Moving along.....


I loved today's look, a fun but smart look
People accept it but think it would look better on occasion if she did something different. It's a fashion thread, people make comments on what they think looks good, bad or what would be an improvement (in their eyes)...

Its a fashion thread, no one is going to agree on everything. As long as we are all respectful of each other, I don't see how anyone has the right to tell others to stop commenting on something.


Kate likes what she wears, like she likes wearing her hair down. If we shouldn't comment on her hair because she 'likes it' and that is good enough, well then we may as well close the thread. Because by that argument we shouldn't comment on her clothes, jewels or anything else.

A lovely outfit. Very Mary indeed, so I guess that's why I like it so much. Though I would have preferred it an inch or so higher up the waist.

Interesting - one of the things I liked was that it rode lower on her waist than she usually does ... i think with her long torso she tends to wear too high. to each their own

and yes I too think it was very Mary

I agree, with her longer torso, the lower riding skirt looks better

This is a very professional look and definitely outside the square for her usual choices. It was flattering and elegant but even though her hair looked great when she exited the car, I can understand the "hair problem".

It's not bad, awful or that I dislike or hate Catherine personally. However, once the breeze gets to her hair and she starts moving around (as one does with boxers gloves), it's a shambles. Princess Madeleine of Sweden is another younger royal whose preference is for leaving her hair down, but she can wear it down and off her face. Even wearing a tiara it is not budging and her jewellery isn't tangled in it.

It is all in how the hair is styled and, I suspect, more than a little hairspray and product. Now if her hairdresser would talk to Catherine's, I suspect we would all be happier. Catherine's hair would stay the way she styled it and it wouldn't end up all over her face or tangled in her jewellery. Most of us would probably be quite happy because she would look just as professional when she finishes an engagement as when she started.

There's a part of me that would like Catherine to take a leaf out of Mary's style book.

I like this outfit for the event, the flying hair, not so much.

Most of this engagement appears to be inside. It's windy at Portsmouth. You don't try to sail at non windy locations.

Yes if you know that it will be windy, why not pull your hair together?

Because it's not a outdoor engagement. She is touring the building and doing a official opening of the tech deck of BAR HQ. That's all inside. The initial greeting was just outside which is usually what happens.

Well, I'm not particularly fond of that suit ensemble, but I like the skirt very much. Hopefully, next time she will have a similar engagement Kate will recycle that navy miltiary coat seen back in 2011.

Exactly. It was a "Hi, wave, shake hand" and then they went in for the rest of the engagement.

If you are going to be in a windy place, it's not like pulling your hair back is going to be much better. Because then you'll have fly-aways, and the prudes on this board will be all like, "OMG, her hair moved."

I found that outfit too costume-y back then, and I still do. Would prefer that skirt wiht a well tailored, but still loose sweater

It's not my favorite of her outfits, but it does have nautical vibe IMO. Glad to see she's wearing an older ensemble.

'Nautical vibe' equals costume to me Sorry but far from my favorite look on her. Perhaps this one has been recycled enough and can be retired.
