Her McQueen dress at the church service is so good. Perfect choice with good accesories.

What makes the outfit is that it is not short. The skirt is the perfect length. Amazing how skirt length can transform a girl into a woman. She looks beautiful.

Ragging on Charlene doesn't make Kate look any better.

Lovely and elegant, but my favorite outfit is the red one. She looks wonderful in bright jewel tones.

Another lovely outfit - very Duchess of Cambridge! I loved the sparkles on the hat and the satin belt detailing.

Two previous posters took the words out of my mouth, Absolutely Exquisite
and
skirt length is perfect, showing a long line.
Love to be able to see the beautiful neckline, the lace a nod to the luncheon table she hosted I assume.

Only criticism is the imo unfinished belt on the back of the dress. We don't need to see how it is fastened.

You're going to tell me off for 'ragging' on Charlene for saying she doesn't suit Akris's clothes after you've just accused Prince Harry of looking like he's on drugs in the Diamond Jubilee thread? Seriously?

I was making a comparison between 2 royal women who have tended to favour one particular fashion house above others. Charlene used to have some sort of partnership with Armani, which worked on her, but has now changed to Akris which simply does not. I'm not the first person to say this.

I think most posters here would agree that McQueen suits Kate much more than Akris suits Charlene. Saying so is not 'ragging' on anyone.

ITA!
She looks wonderful in the red, although the lace outfit is also exquisite.
Perhaps the more subdued color is better for a religious service.

Oh, absolutely, the pastel is better for a church service. I just meant generally speaking, she looks great in strong colors. And she's pulled her hair back twice in a row now; looks great with the fascinators.

An excellent choice for Kate today! I like the dress, the length of it, the color of it, even all that lace, saved from looking like lingerie by the perfect cut and fit. And if I'm not mistaken, Kate has lightened up the makeup a bit. AND pushed her hair back. Fab!

First off- Love the color, love Kate in lace, love the hat!
Once again, she took my breath away- stunning,elegance and grace personified- perfection.
If the Queen was the image of a Queen last night, then Catherine was the image of a fairytale Princess today.....

I appear to be in minority, but Kate's dress didn't really appeal to me.
The material, colour and design are all lovely, but I don't think it's a very flattering shape for Kate's figure.

I'm not criticising Kate, her fashion sense or choice of outfit; just sharing my personal opinion on this particular dress.
Of all the (senior) royal ladies today, I thought only the Queen looked impeccable.

Can't say I'm a fan of that hat. When I first saw it I thought it was Beatrice's famous hat which Kate borrowed for the service. The rest of the lace outfit is nice but lacks a certain "je ne sais quoi" in my opinion.

Artemisia and Kit,
I am joining your opinions on the look. The hat appears to be overloaded with a veil and a flower.

I know the hat was sold on e-bay but it really looked like it at first sight.

I'm not crazy about the hat but I love her in lace. Strangely, the only lace I didn't like was on her wedding dress(I didn't find the dress modest enough). But I love every lace piece she has worn since. I feel like I'm seeing dresses and skirts like this everywhere right now and she might have something to do with it.

Really? You mistook this hat: http://images.ctv.ca/archives/CTVNew...dge_120605.jpg
for this one? http://static.stuff.co.nz/1306095344/274/5040274.jpg

Well, they are kind of the same color, I guess. Although Kate's hat is a much lighter, more delicate shade...

Also she doesn't need makeup to stand out, we all have seen her early pics when she was younger without makeup, and she was just natural and stunning.
i never called her plain or average, so why quoting me? just because i said she was a little above average? i respect your opinion on Kate so i hope you respect mine, as you sound like if you're the correct one because my opinion is as valid as yours.
taste is subjective.

i didnt like her hat today, horrible, however, thats a wonderful dress and she looks nice in pastel/lightcolors
