BTW, she has been quite glam this week.
I'm glad you find me amusing. I'm not related to Kate, I don't know her at all. I hope, however, that I could be relied upon to point out when any woman is compared to a clown or a panda. In doing so I'm not attacking anyone, merely pointing out that it's pretty sad behaviour.

Maybe I've spend too much time looking at celebrity events but when I think cake on make up I don't think of Kate or any royal ladies

My fave celebrity makeups

Not the best outfit for planting a tree.

She does look like a very modest panda when she applies too much eye-liner though... Don't take it to heart.

And yes Miche, the best make-up are those on women on the runway and celeb events. But the difference is, is that it gets applied by professionals.

I didn't say they wore the best make up. Looking at that link, some of the close up of the celebs is what I think when people say cake on make up

Oops, my bad haha. I don't find any of the ladies in the link you posted having caked on make-up. I was thinking more like Courtney Stodden. But that's preference.

The Duchess of Cambridge Amost always dresses and wears make up way more appropriately than Sarah Fergusson ever did, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, Zara, Princess Letizia, Princess Stephanie, Princess Martha Louise and much nicier to my eyes than Princess Anne, Princess Letizia (daytime fashion) and Princess Mathilde; even better than my favourite princesses Maxima and Victoria. As a matter of fact, I think she only doesn't have the wow factor (which can be a good and also a bad thing) Diana and Caroline once had - and no other noble woman has that right now. Princess Mary and Princess Charlene also do have a style that appeals to me.

For what it's worth, I think she looks lovely....very tasteful and appropriate for the occasion. If anything, Kate is proving that she is a regular gal....sharing clothes with her mother and wearing earrings that once belonged to Princess Diana (a lovely remembrance that seems to have been lost here). Isn't that what daughters do? She is always appropriate to the occasion with emphasis on the charity she is visiting or the role she is playing (passing out Shamrocks to the Irish guard) and never tries to steal the show with her wardrobe. Well done Duchess!

The nicest piece of fashion was that garish orange/purplish bracelet - which can be purchased for US $11 online and is a fundraiser for the charity - let's hope the Kate-effect results in some serious fundraising through bracelet sales thanks to her wearing the bracelet.

Now there are mixed reports on whether that was an identical copy of her mom's dress she wore or actually Mrs. Middleton's dress. The bracelet was a great touch as well.

There's also the report that it was Mrs Middleton who borrowed the dress off Catherine in the first place, not vice versa. When it comes down to it, they've both worn the same dress on different occasions. Personally something I would never ever do.

It's almost guaranteed to make a woman look dowdy and middle-aged.

(Yes,I do believe Sarah Chatto looked frumpy at the royal wedding).
The mid calf would be for a very light weight fabric that you would wear with flat shoes to a picnic or some other casual event. Doesn't look frumpy on anyone because the fabric. It would look summery and cool.

Which ever way it is - I think it looks better on Catherine than her mother. Looking at the pictures of them side by side, it doesn't look like they wear the same size. Catherine looks like she is several sizes smaller than her mother. No offense to Mom.

I like the colour of the dress, but apart from that I have no strong feelings either way on today's outfit. Ultimately though, given the topic of today's speech, the fact that the press is choosing to focus on what Kate was wearing is pretty sad.

We'll have to agree to disagree on this, because I think that is a look very unflattering for anyone. I have never seen a single example where that length looked good.

I love that shade of blue on Kate, and that black belt looks so snazzy- completes the look!

I love the color but I think the dress is too big on her. Her first speech was very well done.

Mid calf skirts....good gawd no! I agree that the look is atrocious. I've seen the older royal ladies wear them sometimes and they never look good. I think the thing I liked the most about today's outfit were the shoes, she's worn them before and I love the height of the heel as well as the fabric of the shoes.
As for this idea that she looks like a panda, I must also be watching too much American tv because Kate doesn't look anywhere close to the panda look that I have seen. The actress most associated with it is Taylor Momsen from Gossip Girl.

No, let's not revisit mid-calf lengths, please. That look has to be retired along with shoulder pads!
