I see smoky eyes more smudged than heavy But I agree with you they do look like a pair of black eyes. Let's hope the fashion moves on quickly
Thanks everyone for replies

This is why Kate's make up is so unremarkable to me, I see it on friends and colleagues on a daily basis.

There is no 'class' issue here, I feel it is generic among a certain generation.
Thank you for sharing. You're from the same generation so you''ll be in tune with what is "in" for your age group.

I have been wondering why the Duchess of Cambridge has never worn any Victoria Beckham dresses. The media has indicated that the Beckham's and the Duke and Duchess are friends. I fully expected that she would wear a Victoria Beckham design during their time in California, but she didn't. Just wondering.

Probably for that reason :) She most likely doesn't want to look as if she's promoting a friend's business or "playing favorites".

Maybe the outfits she has from Victoria have not called for the right event yet.

I don't think that would be the case since Kate tends to wear different designers and not stick to just one.

I love Victoria Beckham, her style and most of her fashion creations. If I was Kate I would be wearing her clothes, but thats only because Vic is my fashion mentor.
Kate's eyeliner hardly bothers me, but during the Remembrance Day celebration it was more the amount of blush and foundation that bothered me.

Kate shopping today in London. Thanks to lancchick from the DofCam current events thread:

Kate Middleton Shopping at Zara Pictures

Kate looks very refreshingly casual today. She's wearing her standard black boots and a handbag I've seen before, I think for her departure for Canada, that I've always liked. The skirt is cute, but reminds me a lot of my Catholic schoolgirl days when we used to roll our pleated skirts up waaaay past our knees. And is it me, or are the boots too gappy around the calf? I think they'd look better with jeans tucked in them. It also doesn't make sense to cover up with that heavy turtleneck if she's leaving her bare legs exposed; I know I'd be feeling the chill.

She looks beautiful! So happy and casual, but in an elegant way. And the shot of her engagement ring is particularly nice.

I seem to remember an article from during the engagement that said that Victoria had sent Kate a bunch of dresses, but Kate sent them back because she's been advised not to take free/deeply discounted clothes.

Did I make that up in my head, or does anyone else remember reading that?

Granted, we don't know if it's true or not.

I think I remember Sarah Ferguson getting criticized for taking free gifts from people. I know some of them were trips and plane tickets.

She looks great. Very youthful and classy at the same time.

Also, I just noticed Kate is wearing what looks like her charm bracelet that has her cypher and Camilla's on it. I love that it's a favored piece of casual jewelry that she just wears when she's out and about.

I covet her Mulberry handbag immensely. If only I had a spare £850 lying around!

Nice and comfortable outfit for shopping. But Kate should eat something, she looks terrible skinny.

I don't see bare legs, I see tights. I don't think it would be possible for a real (unzippered) boot to fit over her feet and be any less in circumference than these are - her legs are very thin, which is why there's a gap which wouldn't be there on most wearers of this type of boot. We're accustomed to seeing a more seamless boot/leg on other women.

As I said on the other thread, it's refreshing to see her in motion, with her hair swinging and looking relaxed and casual. She looks glad to be shopping.

Oops, yes, I meant bare legs in contrast to wearing jeans or slacks in what seems to be chilly weather; obviously she is wearing dark tights. It is a cute look, nevertheless.
