I was wondering the same thing. I'd love to get my hands on that and the scarf.

I think she looks good. The dress fits well & the detailing in black is quite nice. I just wish she would wear her hair up with some outfits like this which her hair is covering most of the detailing.

I dont mind the colour and it would have been ok if it were skinny jeans or some kind of quality pants - its ok to be sporty but she looks like a Hockey Mum.
Then the 'chavs' in your area where really expensive trousers! Like EIIR said, a real chav wears name branded joggers to drop the kids off or there pj's. Also, is it wrong to look like a "hockey mum"?

They're jeans, which are far removed from sweatpants.

You're not alone, I for one love the outfit! Love the mix of colours, it was perfect for the event and she added personally touches like the scarf. I'd change the heels though.

I love this dress! It's really elegant with interesting details (the neckline). The shoes and bag go nicely with the look as well.
Now THIS was a fashion win for me.
I don't mind the dress, but grey washes her out. Her earlier outfit shows she's not afraid to wear colour, so maybe on official engagements she purposely dresses older.

Not sure if, like they say, the first impression is always the most genuine one, but when I first saw the outfit with the leggins paired with heels my reaction was: YUCK! Now, such tight trousers rarely look wonderful IMO. No matter how toned or skinny your body is, it's always a bit risky. The combo of such tight trousers and heels is awful. It does look a tad tacky. I agree that flats, ballerinas especially, would have made the difference. Other than that I loved the blazer and the scarf, looked classy together and I see that the trousers might have been useful for playing hockey. The color of the trousers is actually pretty as well.

The grey dress is very pretty. It has a nice cut and makes Kate look more feminine. I even like the detail on the neckline.

Catherine looks good with the grey dress. Nice style, I like the details on the neckline and the lenght of the sleeves.

People are constantly complaining about Kate's hair; she doesn't vary it enough, etc., etc.

But how many other royal ladies ever change their hairstyle?
Starting with the Queen, there's Anne, Camilla, Sophie, Beatrice, Eugenie, who are always the same!
But only Kate gets the criticism, and she varies her hair more than anyone.

None of those ladies you mentioned have their hair constantely in the face, are fiddling with it or hiding behind it - and none of those ladies have such long hair, what is the point of having long hair when having it hang down all the time, playing with it.

The grey dress is very nice, al la Mrs. Chatto. However, the crochet or whatever that bib thing is spoils it. Makes it look like "loving hands, made at home."

I like the grey dress, I think it has the perfect length for Catherine. I'm not sure about the black applications on the top though. There's always something 'missing', at least so far. Hope she improves gradually!

She looked great on both events.

The point of long hair is having it hanging down, imo.
If she's going to put it up, she might as well cut it short and have done with it.

She has years and years to wear it up, or cut it.
She should wear it down for as long as she can.

I also fail to see how occasionally tucking your hair behind your ear is such a social faux pas! If she was in an arena where food was being prepared, I could understand it, but I don't find touching your hair from time to time particularly offensive.

The way people go on about it here you'd think she was walking along picking her nose!

I don't remember seeing Kate wearing her hair up.
In any case, hairstyle is up to individual's tastes; it is an expression of one's personality. If this is the hairstyle Kate feels most comfortable with, why should she change it? Personally I may be somewhat tired of the never-changing hairstyle (almost as much as the ever-present eyeliner), but it's Kate's choice, not mine.

The dark blue blazer that Catherine has worn yesterday is from Emilio Pucci
