I don't like the yellow dress it's too childish and frankly IMO she looks ridiculous I am really surprised that no one thought to "weigh" down the heam on this fabric either, it is like the Stella McCartney too shiny and too babyish for her figure ..or lack of. IMO

According to one of the royal photographers, the dress seemed to be weighed down. He said that the wind was just incredibly strong. I watched the arrival and I do believe she had some type of weight in the hem. Otherwise (with that wind), the dress would have been over her head.

William as a cowboy looks pretty HOT! Catherine looks like Country Barbie. It's just not a good look for her.

I think Catherine looked great in her cowboy attire, it totally works for her; but she shouldn't do it again. Because cowboy attire by law is uncool no matter what.

Hmm. The yellow dress is a very pretty color, that pale butter shade, but the design is quite little-girlish. I wouldn't be caught dead in it.

And perhaps it's meant to hang a bit loosely, but it just didn't seem to fit well on the Duchess.

I think it was meant to hang loosely. But I wanted her to grab a skinny belt just to give it more proportion.

Not a bad look at all, quite elegant and appropriate also fits well.
Apparently this was said to be a Catherine Walker outfit.

Oh, now I do like that. I've always been a fan of fitted coats with a little interesting flare (and flair) in the design. And it's nice to see her in a rich color.

She's fortunate that she's got the coloring to wear orange and yellow shades, because they're hard for many people to get away with.

The color looked more red than orange to me, but yes, she can pull off colors like yellow. Her complexion permits it. I imagine if she were a bit lighter, the color won't suit.

Is that a coat or a coat dress? Hard to tell. It's pretty either way.

I like the color. Very gentle on the eyes.

I agree. William looked great. My problem with Kate's look was that her hair covered a lot of the detail so the look was off. The white shirt was a better choice although I am not certain why she felt the need to change.

Her red dress/coat was a nice look just not for the event. With a tan hat it would have been a great choice for an arrival outfit/national day.

Not sure about the Los Angeles landing because the gathering looks off from the angle I am seeing. Maybe it would work better on a curvier person like the Alexander McQueen sailor dress would have.

Love that color- sort of a tangerine/melon cross color
Love the style of the suit. Very classy and stylish!
And you cannot beat Catherine Walker!

I love how the fabric seems very floaty.
I love how the design just flows.
