Great job Duchess. I for one do not love her style but this works great for me.

I like her outfit. But she is too thin for me.

Everybody has a different body and shape,some women are naturally slim...when you are rather tall like Catherine you also look thinner than a smaller woman.

I think Kate looked fantastic! The red looks great on her.

Catherine looked great. I love the coat (the belt's OK, not bothering me really), and the boots go well with the look. The outfit appears to be comfortable, in a classy, understated, very Catherine, way.

@ Daria- Agree with you 100% Love it! Especially love the coat!
The best part of any Catherine outfit- her smile.

Rose, that goes without saying. Her smile lights up the room.

Say what you will about her, but it's hard to visualize "Catherine" and "tacky" in the same sentence; that's definitely not an element of her style. And Muhler and EIIR, thank you for the explanation of the poppies. We also have poppies in remembrance of living and deceased war veterans for the U.S. Memorial Day; I just didn't realize about the World War I remembrance in Europe.

Poppies and their symbolism and the poppy appeal.
As for Catherine and the word tacky of course we can use those two words together, it is our opinion and it is certainly an element of her style as she, for me, quite frequently looks tacky. She just has to learn.

I love the whole look.

The color is great on her.

I like boots and coat is not bad (but seems to be a little too big or not flatter Kate's body well). Yes, belt is horrible, I just can't stand such a shiny belts so I found it tacky. I prefer original version of this coat.
As always boring hairstyle and harsh make-up.

The red is very pretty. It has a lot of richness to it. The style of the coat isn't my thing but the color is simply beautiful.

My understanding of "tacky" is something that is shabby or in bad taste - no I don't think so.
I personally liked the outfit ( including the belt). I agree that comments about her thinness are a little repetitive, but looking at the video footage I was struck that her facial features seem to be "sharper" if this make sense.

I think the coat would have looked better above her knees. The belt also Would have looked better thinner like on the model. The thick material of her coat was also overwhelming. Few alterations though and it would look more flattering on her.

I agree with another poster who suggested Mary and Kate should have worn jeans, a UNICEF shirt, blazer and their hair up. Maybe then they both would have looked less awkward to me.

I realize that anyone can express what one wants here, but IMO it just seems incongruous to use a term that also means distasteful or offensive in that context. We all know that Kate has a fashion learning curve, but I feel she's always dressed in a manner that certainly isn't tacky.

Mary looks better today. Kate's coat was too long. She is young person - younger than Mary, but she always wear clothes which make her older than she is. She always has this hairdo and make up with roses cheeks... boring for me.

In complete agreement. Catherine's style is anything but tacky. It's classy. If she makes a few mistakes, it's all right, because we all have had days when we made poor fashion choices in the eyes of others. It's part of being human.

I am always surprised to see people freaking out about the slightest critical comment. Nobody said Kate's style is tacky, it was about the belt, an accessory.

I personally find Kate's daytime style classic and elegant, yet at times too old for her age. The hair is annoying at times too, sometimes I think she is keeping it down only to be able to fiddle around with it, giving her something to do.

For me Catherine's outfit was a big disappointment. As soon as I saw the shiny accessorised belt and enormous stilettos I knew she had decided to make a fashion statement. If I had any doubts her hair and makeup took care of that.

I know it is not warm there so I expected a coat and, if she had kept the original belt it would have been "practical", but she didn't. The dizzying height of her stilettos boots were just plain ridiculous, as was the highly coiffured curls tumbling down face and shoulders. She seemed to spend the entire engagement pushing her hair back or trying (in vain) to tuck it behind her ears. How distracting for the poor man trying to show her how to pack the box. All he could see was her hair or her hand shoving it off her face!

IMO, her whole "look" was totally inappropriate for the engagement at hand, but a great look for the glossy mags!
