Putting Kate into Perspective

Each one of us might make a different choice of one or the other of the components of Kate's ensembles, (for me it, too, is the panda eyeliner -- love that description!), but to be fair and give her the credit she is due, this still- young woman has stepped into the full glare of the biggest spotlight in the world. No one in this day and age is getting the attention that the newly minted Duchess of Cambridge receives everytime she steps outside her door.

Yet she has not put a foot wrong and her appearances have been amazing! I am staggered at what she has been able to accomplish in such a short time... And we should compare her to everyone else on the world stage: her tailoring, her understated accessories, her poise and posture, her lovely smile: the overall effect is simply steller. What a credit she is to her husband, to the royal family and to her country!

I LOVED Catherine's military style coat; I thought it suited her figure perfectly, and I adored the fascinator as well. I have said it before but I think I will like pretty much anything she wears as long as she has hair on her head. Her hair is absolutely beautiful. :)

i love her outfit, but i'll give her a 9.7. why? the makeup in her eyes. i don't like that line in the eye. i never liked it.

the golden buttons reminds me diana. but it was perfect for the occasion. and i really love the hat. i want it!!!!

what i really like most of catherine is that she is very careful with the details. did you see the broach? it was an irish leave. perfect to go to an irish military event. she was gorgeous. stunning. and william was quite handsome with that uniform...

But love the shoes and hat :)

That is one lovely white layered dress on Kate, very summery and the fit looks great. I like the detailing on the straps as well. Its simple yet not too simple and quite elegant.

The dress is ok. Not really a fan of it.

Love how Kate looks today! Cool as a cucumber and the tiered Temperley dress is fun and fashion forward.

She looks great in this dress! Finally, age appropriate AND sophisticated at the same time. Perfect balance imo.

Don't they dress up in "days gone by" pioneer outfits on that day?

On the contrary, KittyAtlanta, her hair is her crowning glory and if I had hair like that, I would go with it, too. She looks youthful AND sophisticated!

I do think Catherine was very well dressed for the tennis today. Great dress, and very nice to see her supporting British designers.

Props to Duchess of Cambridge for having the patience to do this probably several times a day (I'd imagine she'd need to touch it up at some point).
I don't wear makeup because my facial skin happens to be my best feature and why would I, at 64, want to cover up super smooth, winkle-free, etc. skin. I do wear lipstick and eyebrow stuff, but I look funny without darker eyebrows (see my avatar --- no eyebrows)!

Kate has worn makeup all her adult life and will probably not change it for many, many years...and that's OK. She is doing very well with her clothing style and makeup. She looks pretty.

Kate looked very pretty today the color suits her. William must be very hot in that suit.
