Doubt there were any weights sewn in, at least not judging by this picture from DM.

I go for both, granny on Little House on the Prairie. Kate looks horrible, very unkempt.

^^ No weitghts sewn in, but this pic will no doubt inspire a lot of speculations...

Well, Kate looked skinnier than ever during last night's gala, so no speculations of that kind for a while, I'm afraid.
It's just a horribly unflattering and ill-fitting dress.

^ Yes, but you know medias, they are able to speculate about anything!

This dress is ugly and looks matronly

I am not a fan of this look and I don't know why as I do not mind the dress. Perhaps it is that it just does not suit her nor does it fit properly, IMO. I really do not like the shoes.

I'm not a fan of the look. The shoes are all right, but the dress is absolutely awful. Doesn't fit very well and the color looks as if it's been in the washer too many times. Sorry Catherine, but this was a miss.

Meh! What was she thinking? And then there are her wedges . . . she looks taller that Wills and Harry!

And not very practical footwear to wear on uneven surfaces, at least for me.

Probably good for stamping down the divots in the field at half time as is the custom. I felt sorry for the ladies who showed up in heels, very impractical given how wet it has been and not good for walking out onto a polo field.

Yep, you get all dressed up to attend a polo match and then you march out on the field at half time and fix the divots. Heels are not recommended.

Honestly, I thought you were pulling my own leg (encased in a flat slipper) which is why I had removed my post. I didn't think well-dressed ladies at polo matches wearing heels would stamp divots at polo matches! Must be so much fun.

Well sometimes they bring their glass of champagne with them, so it is sort of like a cocktail party out there while stamping down divots. A womans work is never done.

I suspect drinking champagne while stamping divots would increase the levity of a dull task. Men get to play and women must toil.....

Plus the style of the shoe does not go with the style of the dress. I had a thought about the fit of some of Catherine's clothes. I know she has lost some weight, but what about this idea - maybe because of her height, she has to get some of the off the rack things a little larger to keep them from being too short. I spent a lot of years having to buy blouses a size larger to get the sleeves long enough for my arm length. This was before tall sizes became more prevelant.

I had not thought of that, but a seamstress could always alter them slightly for her so that the fit is a little better.

If that's the case, then she needs to have those clothes altered and taken in. But I can't see why she can't find clothing proportional to her height if she's concerned about the hemlines. And I thought as a petite person, I had problems with hems too long!
