Kim Kardashian and Tulisa have both worn Duchess of Cambridge's Alexander McQueen pageant dress | Mail Online

Love the colour, the dress is pretty but I hate the hat. Would have loved to see her in navy and white, sailor girl

I'm glad she didn't wear any navy and white, or a dress with boats or anchors on it. I really don't like themed clothing; to me it's just cliche and naff. Although, incorporating local emblems, like the maple leaf in Canada, can work.

I agree... I think that was more a thing of the 80s associated more with Diana's style. although jewelry tends to transcend that cliche, I don't recall whose wedding gift it was... Could have been Queen Mary, QEQM or even maybe Elizabeth & Phillip... But i seem to recall a diamond anchor brooch as a wedding gift... That may have been appropriate today.

I think Catherine looked stunning in the red dress and hat. The color choice was a good one, because as others have stated, she blended in with the decor of the barge, which was most likely the point of wearing such a shade of red. She didn't take away from Her Majesty, but the pictures of just her and William were definitely stunning. She looked elegant.

Catherine looked just lovely today and I really liked her hat. The accessories were a wonderful choice as well... the clutch and the tartan wrap especially!

I liked her hat as well; certainly not oversized. And I noticed how much her hair got wavier in the dampness and rain.

That would explain why it takes her and her hairdresser so long to blow-dry her hair! It is obviously naturally curly and it takes lots of patience to dry it straight and then have to style it.. :)

I actually thought her hair looked more beautiful as the elements worked on it!

I haven't seen the footage of the flotilla yet! *sigh* I don't know why I have missed it. :(

I thought the red on Kate was a bit of a standout until I saw the barge - red, red, red. Kate just faded into the background while the Queen in white stood out, which was completely appropriate. Kate also made sure to stand further towards the back. Kate is not the type to draw attention to herself.

As for the color, I agree that no royal lady just turns up in a color without prior approval and/or direction from the Queen. All the royal ladies, except for Queen and Camilla, were in navies and red. Eugenie had a cream coat but she was not on the same platform.

Who would have ever thought that red would have been an appropriate color if you don't wish to detract from the Queen? A very smart decision to wear it given the color scheme of the barge.

Such a gorgeous red! This dress is very classic and elegant. The hat is interesting, I like it. Overall, I though she looked great!

I thought the dress was thoroughly appropriate (didja notice that Pippa wore blue and Mrs. Middleton wore white? between the three of them they covered the Union Jack!). I do think red shoes with a lesser heel would have been pretty and a lot more practical. We know Kate has these shoes

in her wardrobe, and I think they would have been a better choice than those beige ones.

I liked the red dress and hat. It was bright and stood out against the dark uniforms of William & Harry. At times, Kate red hat was the only thing you could see in the wide shots once the royal barge moored up by Tower Bridge. She can't be accused of stealing the Queen's spotlight. I also loved the dolphin brooch she got from the Royal Navy submarine service which William is the royal commadore. Glad that the boys wore their army and raf uniforms and not navy ones since that is where they serve with. The navy had plenty of representation with Phillip, Charles, Andrew, Anne & Tim.

Pippa and Carole were present? That's nice. I think Kate looked great in the red and as usual a half up half down looks amazing.

I think red shoes would've been too matchy. The nude heels were the right choice. Although, her feet must've been pretty sore after over 4 hours of constant standing.

Not on the royal barge - the whole Middleton family was on another boat with a whole 'lotta other people, too.

I'm not sure "too matchy" is really much of an issue when you have a red dress, red hat, and red clutch. My point is that the beige heels were impractical, but Kate is not known for her practical sartorial choices.

(editing to add: and a red umbrella, too! LOL)

She took my breath away- stunning! If that is not princess perfection, I don't know what is!
