I know she's worn Stella McCartney before, but this is the first piece of her's that I've liked on Kate. The pink shiny thing from Prince Philip's 90th birthday dinner with the other grandchildren was just not nice.

Oh I love this look! Fun, young, modern and finally, some real jewelry.

A+ in my book.

I love the dress, especially the color. The necklace isn't my favorite, but it does complete the outfit very nicely.

What a lovely color on Kate but unfortunately this dress isn't working for me. The lines are clean but there is no shape to it, the sleeves are at a length where it is unflattering to the arms IMO.

It's not a dull colour!!! Yippeee.

EDIT: She's wearing Stella McCartney.

She looks a bit matronly and I wish she would've paired it with some other shoes...but overall she looks great. Love the color and the necklace. Two thumbs up for Kate.

The color is lovely on her, but I think the dress would have looked very nice with her trusty beige LK Bennetts. I don't like those external darts. The dress called for a long necklace and the chain looks really nice and fresh, so it seems she's accessorizing better with her jewelry. I'm just glad it was long enough so that it wasn't concealed by all her hair!

I don't dislike the frock, but something about it reminds me of a 70's flight attendant look.

I like the color & cut of the dress, it looks flattering on Catherine, but I can't get over those pleats sticking out of her bust. They look like fish fins to me!

I have to agree with you on that. They do resemble fish fins.

Oh No! I hadn't noticed that! Of course it is the darts inside out. Fun for the designer maybe, but not flattering for anyone.
Don't think this blue would look well on anyone.
Like the necklace.

I love Catherine in blue. It's definitely a flattering color for her. The dress itself is nothing special. Yes, she does look nice in it, but it's nothing to write home about. I don't care for the shoes. They look as if they're a tad too small.

What a boring dress I really do not like Stell McCartney anything frankly, but this is totally boring and the necklace I don't like it with this ... but the colour is very nice if I have to say something nice, and, the hair all over the face look ... maybe the dress would have looked less boring with the hair up or back.... maybe.

Definitely a lovely shade and the necklace is very flattering. Would like to see Kate doing a bit more with her hair.

I am just not liking those silly darts. I do like the fact that she is wearing a piece of jewelry to break up the monotony of the simple lines of the dress and that one can finally see it!
Is it just me or is her hair getting longer and fuller??
