WOW!
Im sorry but I dont like those skinny jeans/jeggings for such an event.
I also think those pants need a slightly longer top. I would've liked it if she wore the teams track pants or a plain skirt/pants.

I actually like the jeans. I think they were perfect for the event. My only complaint is that she should have worn flats instead of the wedges.

Speaking of ill fitting pants...William needs some new ones.

She dresses too old, she dresses wayyyy too old, oh my god, she dresses way too young. Where's the young look, she dresses badly for a royal, it's inappropriate, and finally, it doesn't meet "my"" dress code.

I'm exhausted - she knows what she likes and she wears it well. No stylist, no loans, no gifts. I LOVE IT.

The very purpose of discussion boards is to exchange opinions.
Not all people are going to like Kate's outfits and/or makeup all the time.

Don't disagree but this is my opinion.

On the other hand, maybe pants would have been more suitable for this event.

I love the cut of the dress but I dislike the print. If it were a simple white dress, then I would have loved it.

Which I respect.
And as a matter of fact, I quite agree with you on today's outfits; I thought the dress was lovely, and the jeans seemed entirely appropriate for the event.

The jeans are very British - "on trend" for her age group and figure.
If I was half my age and half my size I'd be wearing them lol.

I loved the dress and shoes from the early event. Catherine looked cool and professional. The torch event was another matter. Everyone says those pants are skinny jeans but to me they look like regular leggings. If you are jogging or running a marathon in cold weather or in the privacy of your home, they are fine. At a public event they are in the worst possible taste and the wedges make it even worse.

If I was half my age (I would be a little younger than Catherine) and her size, I still wouldn't be caught dead in those jeans/leggings, whatever they are.

ITA it's just too revealing.

Maybe its a difference in culture between the UK and the US, but they are very trendy for young ladies in the Uk and not considered revealing. I have also seen them being worn by young ladies in Manhattan last week so maybe it depends where you live.

Very trendy and in good taste are two different things. IMHO the electric blue leggings are too tight.

Im six years younger than Kate and wear skinny jeans and very occassional leggings but to me the electric blue Zara skinny jeans worn at the torch relay are too skinny for a public event. They are quite revealing and it doesnt matter that Kate has the figure to carry them off and is young but these in my opinion just arent right. I think you can tell thay are cheapish jeans

You may not like the fashion which is ok but to say that they are not in good taste is, IMO, going too far. Let's leave it that it is a matter of style

I was brought up (in a large city by the way) with the idea that it is better not to show all of your assets. That hinting at your figure is much better than letting everything show. Those pants leave nothing to the imagination and I am sorry if you don't like it but I do feel they are in bad taste. I am just expressing my opinion. You have every right to express yours and we don't have to agree.

I think it's funny, though, that Kate usually dresses demurely at public events but then not so much with these jeans. Wow! I don't think she looks bad; it's just a surprising choice especially with the sky high wedges. I am so excited to see her day after day...lots of outfits in the offing!

The dress is ok...not crazy about the shoes.

As far as the bright blue pants...I honestly thought she was wearing leggins or some sort of lycra type jogging pant....way too tight. When the pant wrinkles like that it's too tight. Again, not crazy about these shoes either.

I don't get Catherine at all. To me her leggings were just plain vulgar. I don't care if they are on trend or not, vulgar is vulgar and that back view is just that! As to the dress, while it looks fresh and summery it also looks too high in the waist, sort of unbalanced.

But, the issue I have with Catherine's clothing is that she is becoming just an unpaid model as they tout the make and price of the dress and the make and price of her shoes. Yes, there are lots of sheep out there that will buy anything that Catherine wears but that doesn't make it elegant, well made or even attractive. It just makes it cheap!

Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton sports £35 dress from Hobbs in countdown to Olympic Games 2012 | Mail Online

That is not a headline to be proud of. It just cheapens the whole Royal Family. I don't expect her to wear designer clothes just becaused they are more expensive. I don't even want her to wear "designer" clothes at all as it just feeds into the "show pony with a price tag" effect. I just expect a modicum of modesty and dignity from a very public new face in the BRF.

I agree with those that say the jeans/leggings are a bit on the tight side. I've seen women here in Manhattan wear pants like that, and it doesn't always look nice, especially if the top is a bit on the shorter side. I think with a flowing, longer top they look just fine. However, I, personally won't wear something that tight and revealing to an official/semi-official function. I will say that I think Catherine has the figure to pull these off, and looks quite fabulous. Ballet flats would have probably worked better too.

That said, I do own several pairs of skinny jeans and I love them with my boots or ballet flats. I try to pair them up with a top that's not too short, just to be safe.
