I'm not at all fond of the flowers around the neckline. The outfit would have looked much better without them. I do love the color though...it's really beautiful and I think this shade of blue really suits Kate.

As for her makeup, I don't get the big deal about it. It doesn't look any different than many of the other royal ladies (Madeleine, Beatrice, Mary, Zara). A lot of them seem to favor ample amounts of eyeliner.

I really like the suit and the colour suits her I think. The hair the makeuo always an issue for me .. I think the flowers are cute on the jacket.

For all the criticism Catherines fashion choices seem to get from fashionistas on these boards the buying public do not seem to agree. Almost every outfit she has worn has sold out in minutes after her appearances.

I love her clutch!! However it seems to be more of an evening bag than one for daytime use.

I like the suit, however not the flower designs. I love the color of the suit. I think she looks very elegant.

I love the color and fabric, but not the suit. The flowers around the neckline looked out of place.

Love the suit, love the color and texture. Do not love that the jacket, like yesterday's, just doesn't fit. It's too small, the waistline is really hitting her above her waist, and the jacket poofs out too high up on her. Sleeves shorter than they should be too.
Like the pic with the baby.

It has been mentioned at other places several times that most of the dresses Kate wore in the last year were from older collections of the designers, so, of course they would have been sold out very easily.

I like this outfit a lot. The suit is lovely, probably a bit aging, but she seems to go for quite conservative and simple stuff. I like the color, the shoes are alright and the clutch is of course great. Should be Bottega Veneta, no?

Make up to heavy, hair boring.

On the contrary, as someone who's tried on several occasions to buy some of the clothes Kate has worn over the last year, even when the clothes are from past seasons they're almost all still available online, before Kate wears them. You could've bought the Rebecca Taylor blue jacket at Nordstrom's this morning for example, but after Kate was pictured wearing it it had gone in minutes. Usually after Kate wears something the designer's website crashes as people try to get what she's worn. And it's not just clothes; after Kate was pictured playing hockey a few weeks ago sales of hockey equipment rose more than 400% the next day.

The same can be said of Pippa. I bought a Modalu handbag that she has been seen with. I had to wait about 2 months for it as the company had been inundated with orders. When I got it I wasn't fussed with the straps so I sold it on ebay. It cost me £149 and I sold it almost £400 and had people from all over the world messaging me to see if I would ship it overseas. It was bonkers.

That's really amazing; these ladies have got the golden touch when it comes to influencing fashion. They've certainly given a healthy boost to the fashion industry in terms of supply and demand, and the less of supply the more in demand, it seems. Glad you made a profit, EIIR!

I was pretty flabbergasted by the whole thing, Baroness. It was the one Pippa had the day after the wedding when the Middletons left the Goring. I couldn't believe the interest in it.

That's why however much the younger Middleton may hang around with plonkers who like toy guns I'll always have a soft spot for her!
