dazzling, apparently she had it specially tailored to fit. I thought it looked fine.

If she had it tailored to fit I don't see how they did a good job, the sleeves were simply baggy compared how the dress was fitted. I personally didn't think it looked good.

I loved Kate's classical outfit. A pale, yet simple ivory/cream shade which seems to work well with Kate's dark hair. I think the slightly baggy sleeves were part of the look and I did not find them offensive at all. HM looked lovely as always. Wonderful to see the two of them in public together.

I thought it looked ill-fitting too and only stressed how thin Kate has become. Agree on the need to a colourful accessory to break the boredom.
But I guess this boredom is on purpose, it makes Kate so popular with the BRF.

She really needs to lose the cross-over dresses with the deep V necks. They just emphasise how much weight she has lost and how thin she is. Her hair looks almost too heavy for her small frame.

So funny how differently people can view things. I thought the outfit was perfectly fine. Nothing super special but it was a private event so I wouldn't expect it to be. Kate has always been thin. Honestly the talk about her weight and how thin she looks is getting annoying. I guess I'm sensitive about that because of how much i was teased about it as a kid. Even if people didnt or dont mean it in a bad way, it is really hurts and is frustrating especially when its just speculation or rumors. I can't tell you how many times I had to deal with people. Funny enough usually they were not all that small themselves which annoyed the heck out of me.

We are really not supposed to talk about weight issues here.

Is it not possible that the dress was designed with sleeves which give the wearer a bit of room? They're not skin tight but I wouldn't say they're anywhere near 'baggy'.

Yes, EIIR. If you look closely, you'll see that the sleeves were designed to be somewhat loose. Look at the pleating effect on the shoulders. It's hard to see in the pictures, but it's there.

The dress is very simple, elegant and suitable for the ocassion, sometimes simplicity and neutral colours are the best choice...

I loved her green dress she wore at the pre-wedding event.

The green DVF dress is nice but nothing great. I wish she'd have spiced it up a little, maybe tomorrow.

I'm still not liking the green DVF dress (thought maybe after a second or third look it'd grow on me). It reminds me of a rather long sweater.

The talk about Kate's weight is annoying to ms as well. I don't know how long it's going to take for people to just get over it.
Looks like Kate's hair is growing a little bit.

I loved the colour of Catherine's dress at the event. It was perfect with her dark hair, and her shoes were beautiful.

I was not a big fan of the green dress (Diane Von Furstenburg I believe). She just recently wore this dress...she should've given it a bit more time before she wore it again.
