Pale colours are always a winner to me...I admire for for not beeing too mucht pretentious...I admire her for her simplicity and elegance at the same time. She can be superior, tastefully but simple and to me that is the best aprroach!

Am new to this great thread.

Without commenting on individual past outfits I'll start off by saying that, to date, I find the majority of Kate's outfits to be very conservative. IMO, she dresses like someone much, much older than her.

Of the few "young" outfits which she wore I liked the dress and jacket she wore the morning after the wedding and the dress she wore to the Gary Barlow concert.

I'm looking forward to seeing what she wears next.

I think she looks nice, but not exceedingly madeup as her usual! it's good to just commingle with the crowd every once in a while . . . I believe I saw another royal wearing a similar outfit that night . . .

That night. ? As in at the dinner hosted by Charles & Camilla. ? I don't recall any of the ladies wearing a short, pleated dress.

Charlene of Monaco wore pink that night but her evening dress and Kate's day dress were streets apart.

I dont recall seeing Kate recycling in such a short period of time or recycling at all. Nice to see this again, its a nice coat dress for the event BUT Kate should've worn a brooch with this, it looks too plain.. I don't know what to think of the hat, its quite an old style which works well with the dress but I don't really like it. There are many nice hats out there.

For the amount of money Kate paid for the dress, she should recycle it, but a brooch would have been a nice addition as she wore for the luncheon. And with her hair pulled back nicely, a brooch would have shown up well. The hat is nice, but I'd have liked it better if not for the peak side; looks like a tricorn from that angle. But at least it's not a huge dish like some hats I've seen.

The hat is not my favourite; the general design reminds me of satellite dishes Sophie favours, with the addition of some rather ugly details.
The dress is nice but I have never been overly fond of it.

That's some ugly hat... weird size and a decidedly odd shape, extremely unflattering.
And why on earth would you wear Great-Granny's crochet coasters sewn to your hat as 'embellishments'...?!

I had the impression that she was beginning to tone down her make up somewhat, but here it is again applied with a shovel - not too smart for a day event.
But the shade of pink is beautiful, and at least her hair is not all over the place this time.

Completely agree with you.

The hat is horrible. Here is a close up; the more I see it, the more I hate it.
Her makeup looks just too heavy, especially the blusher.

Boris,
You are spot-on with your assessment of Catherine's, Duchess of Cambridge, hat. Tanned complexion is not particularly flattering.

you know what? I actually liked the hat and thought it went very well with the dress. And I also prefer the shoes worn this time. I did not lke at all the previous satin shoes - their shape was not flattering.

The only thing I like about the hat is that it keeps the hair out of the way. Other than that, this thing is plain ugly.
Make up ... no comment. It almost looks like theater make up, up close its rather clownish.
I do like the dress, the shade of pink is pretty. Without a brooch etc the design is too plain.

My feelings exactly, Boris and Duke! I cannot add anything to what either of you had to say...

I like the hat as well. The dress is rather plain, but pretty and suitable; and the hat can be "fussy" as a result. The Dss of Cambridge was there as junior to the Dss of Cornwall, and so it was only right that she didn't "turn up the volume."
