Ditto. She gets it right 99.9% of the time, and almost always, there's something to compliment.

Vivienne Westwood has absolutely NO clue how to design anything respectable or suitable for anyone. In fact she is the one who came up with the dreadful outfit Princess Eugenie wore to William and Kate's wedding. As for Kate's so called "majorette" outfit, I actually loved it. So chic and elegant and very, very Kate indeed. Loved the gold buttons too.

Finally a logical word!!!!

How could people believe that this crazy out of mesure outfits could be worn by a person with the class of Kate, and being the future Queen of UK for instance!!!!!

Actually, I take exception to both statements . If one can look past the models' makeup, there is more than one item from the Fall/Winter 2011-12 collection that I'd like to add to my wardrobe.

Semisquare, the fact that the Queen doesn't carry much in her handbags doesn't mean that a modern, much younger princess wouldn't have quite a lot she might want to carry. The Duchess doesn't have a lady-in-waiting at the moment, and she goes shopping for groceries and clothes. She needs a wallet or credit card holder for those trips, and perhaps she carries some grooming items in her larger bags: hair brush, lip gloss, nail file, etc. These days, almost no one is without a phone.

What the Queen does may not be what other royals do.

Well, maybe Kate wants to be her own version of extraordinary which is a low-key, subtle and classic style. What designers want and expect, and what Kate desires are two different things and she needs to dress according to her own tastes and lifestyle, not live up to what others demand of her. Give her a break, indeed!

Exactly, Vittoria, every modern woman needs a handbag or accessory in which to carry necessary items, and Kate doesn't seem any different even if her lifestyle certainly differs from ours.

Actually I think that is why she (and others) use the clutch. And older royal ladies (such as the Queen and the late Queen Mother) used handbags but not shoulder bags. It might be more of a hassle to meet and greet while worrying about your shoulder bag falling off your shoulder.

Westwood is certainly not for me, either. Clutches are so darling, and sophisticated too - and all Kate needs to do is acquire more of them.

What I would want if I were a princess:

Balenciaga Pink Clutch Bag

I'd want a bunch of others, too. That would be my weakness. I'd also want some Balenciaga firsts to wear on my arm.

I see that a lot of European royal ladies use clutches on their meet and greets, but these clutches are a nice substantial size that you can easily tuck under your arm leaving your hands free. I have one that's long and narrow and fits comfortably under my arm. If Kate sticks with clutches, that's the size I like, not the little change purse types that leave you really no option but to keep in your hand. I like the size of the Balenciaga clutch, and if someone would like to drop $1,045 on that for me, I wouldn't argue against adding it to my wardrobe!

The cluches she is usually carrying are nice but not practicall at all. They totally block you one arm and you can`t put nothing inside eccept one small lipstick.deNo way to put one of the actuall mobile phones like.i-phone or simil and of course no cigarets (does she smoke??). In fact her cluches are strictly decorative items. Letizia carries a practical side of cluches.

That's a little too pink for me. Reminds me of an accessory that could be used by Galinda from 'Wicked' (she loved her pink). However, in another color this clutch could work.

Nice clutch, but it's the color of Pepto Bismol. I would like it in a more neutral color.

I completely agree. Its one thing to say an outfit looks bad; its completely another to say her outfit is somehow disrespectful to the occasion. Then again people say the same thing about Victoria of Sweden and Charlene of Monaco.

She does nothing for me at all. Those demure tea dresses are never going to offend but they could never be called stylish either. To be fair if that is how she wants to dress it's up to her, she clearly isn't trying to be a fashion plate but some sections of the media are determined to have their replacement Diana so will keep emphasisng what a style icon she is because that is what THEY want her to be. At the end of the day they aren't doing her any favours because their comments only emphasise how old-fashioned she is for someone her age.
