I'd be very surprised if those d.r.o.n.i.n.g on {and on}about being bored with the Duchess' style have much with which to occupy their thoughts. Fortunately the Duchess is rather busier bringing widespread happiness...

I LOVED them in their Western attire. Even though I think she's far too thin and am kind of worried about her weight, I thought she looked adorable in the bootcut jeans, boots and hat! And PW...HOT in that cowboy hat!!

I wasn't a fan of her lacy white shirt and thought the first one with the black and white design was better (I think a cute plaid one or even a polo shirt would have been even better) but overall I loved both their looks over those two days. Although...why didn't PW have a different shirt for the second day? That was confusing to me.

This is a discussion board, right? I think everyone is entitled to their own opinion and just because you don't agree doesn't mean that the other people don't have much to occupy their thoughts.

Well put. I myself have grown tired of some plp saying anyone who disagrees or finds Catherine (or the tour) dress/style/actions not absolutly perfect as jealous, mean, critical etc.....you can like her and still be honest about how you feel about her actions/dress ....as long as the post is respectful, we are all allowed our opinions.....

This is also a discussion board about royals. If the rich cultural heritage and current customs regarding the monarchies and royalty are not part of someones realm of interest any opinion will be out of touch.

Would anyone join a discussion board about golf if their only interest and sports knowledge is soccer and their comments within that context?

The royal discussion boards are not about celebrities but about people that by either birth or marriage are carrying out duties that are within today's reality of royalty and monarchies. Sometime some efforts of posters to educate themselves about the how and why certain things are done would greatly improve the tone on these boards.

I live in Texas; far west Texas to be precise. And I stand by my statement that cowboy attire is uncool.

I used to live in West Texas, and in northern New Mexico too.

It all depends on the "cowboy attire" and who is wearing it. I'd certainly not allow one regime's use of cowboy attire to ruin cowboy attire forever.

I now live in Hawaii and California, and I think people (especially in Hawaii) have a very different view about the coolness of cowboy attire than people in West Texas (the paniolos are a much loved tradition on Big Island).

I've disliked the attire long before George Dubya came a long. Since I was very young I just haven't liked it, but everyone is not going to like all types of clothing and style.
For example th people on this board who constantly complain about Kate's eyeliner.

Actually I have been lurking around this thread for a while and I have to disagree. Some of the comments people make are not very respect for that matter true. The other thing is a lot of people who post on here not seem to like her style or are always complaining.

Personally I really like her style and the elegant dress, jewelry, shoes, and makeup she wore to the BAFTAs. Sometimes I think people overexaggerate, but you are entitled to your opinion, but I really think we need to tone down the comments a little. Some are a little insulting whether we mean them to be or not.

Kate's outfit in Skid Row. I really like. Lovely crochet top and the pleated white skirt.

Oh, dear. The white pleated skirt and navy crocheted top (I think that's actually a dress; you can see the bodice and straps) don't do anything for me at all. Another site claims that this is a Whistles outfit; unconfirmed. It just doesn't flatter her, and the navy heels she's wearing with it (plus the sapphire earrings) look too formal. Of all the outfits she's worn on this tour, this and the McQueen "nautical" dress have struck me as the poorest choices.

I personally thought she looked great. She's not a fussy gal, and it shows.

I happen to agree. Loved the outfit. The crochet top was wonderful.

I LOVED the crochet outfit, then i realized it was a lot because of the HAIR. It was off the face, in a bun,and back! Hopefully, she will cut a few inches off, already she is thankfully curling it to make it shorter looking.
She is not an every day gal, she is in the public eye and the long hair, touching it, which IS a faux pas, is not an option for her.
LOVED the green dress. The flower dress did nothing for her but fab shoes.
She has beautiful posture and is very supportive of her husband. Such an asset for the BRF!

I think for as long as William is with the RAF, she is not in the public eye. At least not fulltime.

.

Some are rude yes, but other respectfully say they dislike a look, find her or the tour pointless or boring or something tacky, all of which is respectful and an opinion. It's possible that like the threads for Mary and Charlene some plp just will never like what Catherine wears/does but as long as they aren't attacking her disrespectfully they have a right to that opinion. In general I love her look and doesn't matter to me if it's boring but that's just my opinion :)

I actually like her hair. She has always had it long. I really would hate it if she cut it. Maybe when she has kids or something or when she gets older, but for now I think she should keep it. I know it may get annoying but I dont think she is always touching it to be honest I think that is a slight exaggeration.

I actually liked what Kate wore today! Not only did I find it really cute and stylish, but I loved that it fit her! (See the green dress, that while I loved the colour, I found it to be too big on her small frame.)

Yes, she used a lot of variety in colour, print and style. I like the non-skin tight fit of her clothes as well.

She and William 'playing' in the clay, they are The New Face of The Monarchy and it is long over due. There has always been hair and hat touching among the members of the British Royal family. It is not a Kate exclusive

I really like this dress! I'm impressed with how she dressed for this first tour. She always looked appropriate, she dressed with the same formality/informality when he did. Her choices were very simple but elegant. It will be interesting to see how her style evolves.

I personally do not find her "style boring" I just feel like the fit is often off and that is disappointing because these clothes, relatively speaking, are not cheap. She also, in my opinion, tends to be off with the whole wrong clothes to the wrong event thing.

She does seem to embrace the idea of leaving something to the imagination. I have always liked that about her because you so rarely see that with famous, young people anymore. I just hope that she visits a tailor.
