Should have seen it coming. Get down, hide, here come the stones. We're eavilly picking on Kate. Every inch of her is perfection. If we see something wrong, it's because we're blind or were spiteful.

Guess what's if you go on any fashion thread you will find critiques of every Royal. No one gets it right every time, and even a seemingly elegant look may have a flaw for some people. Kate isn't some scapegoat martyr.

If I saw this look on another Royal, like maxima or Mathilde they would have got a harsher critique. I find the style matronly but it seems to suit Kate. Maxima I expect more colors, more modern, more risk.

As for the hat, well it's well established my opinion of a pill box on almost all occasion no matter who. There are the rare lady who pulls it off without it being matronly, because the rest of their outfit gives it a modern feel.

Whoa, holy overreaction, Batman. No one said anything even close to that. I was expressing my own opinion, not criticizing yours.

Mine is that Kate does not always pick the most interesting outfits, but always picks appropriate ones. Some other folks agree. Some don't! That's fine.

The Duchess of Cambridge hosted a group of athletes running for Heads Together, in a reception at Kensington Palace today.

Nice and simple look for this event

Yes simple/casual ..works for the event. Not many women can pull off horizontal stripes.

Great casual look. Like the stripes on her

As I said in Canada, many of her best looks for me are her casual looks. Manages to be modern age appropriate while still appropriate for the event.

I agree that she shines in casual looks. She always seems more herself. I think of her more formal outfits as her royal uniform, her casual ones seem more like who she really is and how she's most comfortable.

I love the Armani suit, the top looks so different from the usual jacket styles.

This is one of the loveliest outfits I've seen her in a while. Great from head to toe, it fits her like a glove. Her hair looks very nice too.

Like Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney ? Both brands are own by French company Kering run by Selma Hayek's husband. The fashion industry is pretty wide spread across the globe.

I adore the suit and it fits her like a glove, but, I do think that with William and Harry both with no ties/suits, this outfit might be a little to formal for the visit. A nice spring shift dress with great shoes would have been my preference. Leave this suit for another day.

She looks great in it ...from the front view it almost has a sporty feel to the top.
