The more I look at today's dress, the more I like it. The tailoring is great, the print is fresh and fun, and most important: she wore red shoes!

I like it! It seems like it would be too much, contrasting cuffs, tiers, scalloped hem and print and pearl buttons, but it does seem to go and look like fun!
Loved yesterday's outfit, esp brooch and the hair! The children, impeccable!

The style of the dress is nice but the style and the intricate embroidered fabric was just a bit too much, too heavy for a full dress like that which involved layers. The hair looked messy and with a high neck, hair should always go up, even if it was a ponytail. Moreover, I thought this dress was a bit underdressed, ideal for a more informal event.

This is was a total miss!

Its a miss for me, high neck and hair all over, style/print too much, I find the layers too busy and the print reminds me of a table cloth/china porcelain.

4.000 GBP Alexander McQueen dress

I have to say I agree. Even the red accessories seem too bright and glaring a red against the busy white and red pattern which toning down the colour considerably.

There are those who have alluded to fine tablecloth material and on the boards, they say she got the dress wrong as with a couple of buttons undone at the neck and red cowgirl boots she'd be dressed for a Country and Western engagement . . . to be honest, they may have a point.

I like her earrings but her hair is a mess again after such a great start. I have to agree with those that say a high neckline calls for an updo, either formal or even an elegant ponytail.

I see Kate's efforts to give a nod to the host country, Canada (= red/white).
But like in India she's wearing mostly UK designers trying to catch the host country theme, instead of trying a local designer.
I find especially AMcQ designs totally overpriced, eg 5.000 Euros for the red/white frock.

red cowboy boots and ponytail would be perfect for Country Western

it's been two outfits. I'd wait until the end of the tour before raking her over the coals for only wearing non-Canadian designers.

The red and white dress is actually really good and a more interesting choice for her.

The coat on day 3 has a disgusting color.

Her ensemble is ok but the skin tight pants do nothing for her.I also feel the safari jacket had a slightly ridiculous feel. I wish she had followed her husbands lead and worn what he wore, some slightly baggy cords and a sweater.

I actuall find myself liking the safari style coat. I think it is casual and fits event. I also love the boots. Give her points also for Canadian earrings

But the pants are too tight. And not a fan of the top she is wearing under. Look is much better with the coat. By far the most interesting of her three looks.

I think the safari jacket would look better without all those pockets on the front. Side pockets that are invisible would have been just fine. I like the sweater, button-down shirt, trousers and boots ensemble. It's very casual and fitting for the event and weather.

She paid 4,000 for that?

That would make more sense to me.

The overall look is neat but I dislike the color of the jacket, seems to a shade of yellow/cream to me and the skinny jeans almost look like leggings. Maybe a different shade would've worked better.

I think a light parka would have worked better in either red or blue.
