From pictures I've seen of her college days, Kate has somewhat curly hair.

I don't think she needs a perm to have curls. If you look at her school pictures early on she did indeed have curly hair.

I honestly don't think she'll look good with perm or curls, despite her natural hair style.

I think Kate would look great with curly hair, frizzy even.

She goes thru a lot of time and effort to keep the ends of her long locks bouncy & curly. But I think a perm would over power her face!

Shorter hair with slight bangs would be my suggestion.

Like this:

But I have no idea it would age her. Maybe, maybe not.

I think Kate might look good with a fringe or some hair sweeping over her forehead.

I always thought perms were for those who had limp or lifeless or thin hair. Catherine's hair is not limp, not lifeless, and not thin. In fact, her hair is gorgeous. Why would she want to harm it by perming it?

No doubt she will continue to wear it down for most occasions. I certainly would if I had her hair! She'll have 6 or 7 decades in public life to wear it in an updo or to have a very short cut. I've noticed that many older women who have beautiful hair continue to wear it longer.

So blame the school that Kate didn't show up in her princess outfit!

Personally, I never thought she had dressed inappropriately. She was making a low-key visit to an art school. Things can get messy. But I did read several comments here and other places about how disrespectful it was of Catherine to dress in such a manner.

I also read that people felt Catherine also was unfeeling and rude to make the children wait outside in the cold to give her a send-off when it turns out that the school mustered the students outside to say farewell.

Some people expect her to run around in Haute Couture-gowns everyday....after all a Princess´s most important job is to wear tiaras and look pretty,isn´t it?

I'm in agreement. There's no reason to come into an art class dressed to the nines, especially if one wants to participate (and apparently Catherine did). She looked respectable. It's not as if she showed up in ripped jeans and her husband's old button-down shirt.

If Kate dressed as the school requested, then she dressed appropriately. Perhaps the school just didn't expect the children's level of disappointment over her outfit.

Catherine has made a point of "dressing down", "dressing High Street", not wanting to be a "Clothes Horse", being "ordinary". She seems to be under the impression that if she isn't seen to spend money at really high end retailers whilst showcasing the High Street, she is to be admired for her "economy" for not spending conspicuously.

But this is a double edged sword. This is not the first "scandal" about cheap labour, even slave labour, to come out of the High Street. And to be honest if Catherine had never married Prince William few, if any of these incidents and allegations would ever have reached the front pages. But her patronage of these outlets is sending their profits into the stratosphere which, in turn, will result in even more exploited workers.

I think the time has come for her to move on up. Yes it will cost her more in these financially straightened times but what is worse? Buying clothing from those who exploit workers mercilessly and without conscience all in aid of the bottom line, or Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, spending money she can afford on clothing I can't?

No contest!

Even the high fashion house used "slave labor".

The only way for Catherine to avoid using so-called 'slave labor' is to get her own personal tailor and have him/her make her entire wardrobe, from casual jeans/pants to evening gowns. However, if she chooses this route, then she'll be dubbed as a 'snob'. In any way, she cannot win, so maybe she should stick to what she's been doing.

For now I think "what she has been doing" is a poisoned chalice. It's either no shopping or, more probably, more clothing items like the "nameless" coat she wore at Christmas.
