IMHO the hat/fascinator is cute, if a touch cartoony. What I dislike is the Anya Hindmarch straw clutch - even her website describes it as "perfect for beach cocktails or poolside parties." It just doesn't fit with the rest of the outfit.

i am not a fan of the canada day outfit. too much going on to my taste. i didn't like the erdem dress or the bird dress for that matter. i was hoping for something more special for such an important visit. let's hope it improves!!

Kate's Homage to Canada

Her outfit is a total homage to Canada. The shade of red is Canada's red and the hat has maple leaves on it. The white Reiss dress is one she owned. So what are the messages?

1. Respect to her host country;

2. Frugality at wearing a dress she already owned;

3. However in another significant mark of honour to Canada, the white dress is the one in her engagement photos (an important event in her and William's life) that she chose today, Canada Day, to be the second wearing;

4. The Queen's maple leaf brooch is a mark of the Queen's favour to Kate and to Canada.

I like the headpiece, its a nice idea, very respectful towards the hosts. Not liking the bottom of the dress at all, the ugly design makes it too short.
Same old hair

The white dress is nice but after all the weight loose it looks quite big and baggy which looks quite weird. The headpiece is just wrong and silly looking IMO especially with open hair.

Big and baggy? Huh? It seems to fit more or less the same way it did the last time she wore it. I don't think Kate has lost very much, if any, weight. Her face looks a little stressed and tight - but that makes sense.

I think the headpiece is fun and quirky. Canadians are noted, in my opinion, for our ability to laugh at ourselves. It was a nice piece of quirk inside a very traditional situation. Very Canadian.

LOVED the Maple Leaf brooch.

Yes. Thank you.

I agree with Susanna Wynne -- Kate looks beautiful! The maple brooch & hat are great touches to her outfit. It's her first visit as the Duchess and she'll get better over time.

I loved the outfit. And yes the hat is fun and cute. This is not a formal, stuffy event. Last year we saw the Queen in vibrant red on Canada Day but somehow I expected Kate to wear white. It looks great on her.

She has looked lovely over the last 2 days nad the red and white though nothing special is plain and easy to wear I do like the bag. Though not a fan of lace she looked lovely on arrival and the little bird number seemed just right for the first evening.

sorry to have to say I really hate the whole outfit. The hat is beautiful but she has to do something with her hair. The dress is awfull, too short, doesnt suit her, the bas is a onstruosity for me. A bad day today.

First I dislike Charlene wedding civil outfit, too dull and too night gown and know Kate's very ugly outfit. Not a good day for me.

A nice coat over a dress and a headpiece or hat would've been great.
Oh, I love that dress!

Is there any particular reason for this ugly handbag/clutch to be saved for a trip to Japan? Likening it to real Japanese fans, which are examples of exquisite craftsmanship, is totally inappropriate.

I think you are talking about the same dress - though in some pictures you can see that it's actually dark blue lace!
