We've had an event today;
Kate Middleton is demure in white as Royal couple attend Princes' Charities Forum | Mail Online

And I do love the vintage look, particularly the high waisted skirt.

From what I can see I like it, although I am not a fan of poofy sleeves.

The Duchess of Cambridge: a year of record fashion sales - Fashion Galleries - Telegraph

Fashionistas may find her clothes boring but retailers have certainly benefited from people buying copies of whatever she wears.

From what I can see I am not liking her white outfit, I may change my mind with a better look, but so far it's not flattering. I also am not in love with her blue 2 piece from the 26th with the flowers around the collar, it wasn't necessarily unflattering, it just wasn't anything that stood out to me. For some reason it gave me the feel of a politicians wife.

It's a nice top but I do not like the sleeves.

I agree - I didn't like cuffs like that when they were in fashion back in the early 1970's. I was in junior high at the time and thought they were awful then and my feelings haven't changed

Agree - sleeves like that must actually fit, too, to be a success, and in this instance they are actually sliding over her hand. Oh dear. Bad hair day, too. Nice smile, though.

From what I can see of he outfit, it looks all right. I'd like to see a better picture in order to make a better judgement.

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.
Catherine has good fashion taste and good PR sense. Her fashion choices are not for the elite haute couture set but seem tailored for the "people" that admire and watch the BRF. This combined with her genuine openness and charisma, her fashion choices will always be a retail success. Princess Diana had many of her outfits made to order and her image sold magazines all around the world. Catherine's image is selling magazines and clothing. And this is good for British fashion.

Personally, I don't think that has anything to do with her fashion sense. She could wear a potato sack and it would still be sold out the next day, just because of her popularity and the popularity of the BRF in general.

Prinsessan, I believe you've hit the nail on the head.

Are there any? Apart from overly expensive ones that 99% simply couldn't afford?

From what I've read, just about everything Kate has worn has sold out except for those outfits that have been in her wardrobe for awhile and are no longer in stores, or the very unaffordable items.

Unfortunately, there are no better pictures. However, the blouse Kate is wearing is Ted Baker STARDY blouse.
The blouse is almost see-through, as can be seen in the picture of a model wearing it.

I generally love Ted Baker but the blouse is definitely not among my favourites.

I like the detailing on the front, but not the collar or sleeves. Thanks for the better photo of the blouse, Artemisia!

Ted baker can create some nice pieces and shoes but I don't like this blouse very much.
