I'm not too crazy about this outfit. The color is lovely, but I'm just not a fan of the material or the style.

One of the royal reporters said she might wear this outfit for the opening ceremony, but I hope not. I'd like to see her in something a little more fun.

Me too. I'd love to see Kate in something bright, but that's not going to happen today.
The material of this outfit is just too shiny for my taste.

Hmm, I thought it was light blue too. It reminds me of the suit Princess Charlene wore to the Monarch's dinner during the Jubilee. Shiny, light blue thing.

It's an awesome outfit! Lovely color, good structure, shows off her figure beautifully, looks rich, and classically beautiful.

You're right. It does resemble the suit that Charlene wore to the Jubilee luncheon.

I agree. I don't like the shininess of the dress. It might have looked better in a different material, but that satin just isn't working for me.

My inclinations were right, she's wearing the same outfit for the opening. Shame.

I think she looks lovely and the fit is VERY nice. Could have been a brighter color but I'm good with this.

I love the ice blue dress. The fit was perfect. All the darts, etc. were in the correct places. Wonderful fit.

Not a fan of the blue jeans. I don't think they are flattering on her at all. Don't like the shoes either.

I think she looks great in the blue outfit. She looks very sophiticated and elegant. The color is very beautiful. Very classic look!

Meh...it's an okay dress but it really doesn't flatter her, the color is to pale.

They wished for a brighter color on "Cathy", but thought "Bill" looked fab.

Looks like I'm going to have to have words with all my female friends who wear skinny jeans on an almost daily basis. They obviously don't realise how vulgar they are and how inappropriate it is for them to be seen wearing them in public. Some of them even wear them to church, horror of horrors!
Ima have to inform my supervisor that her choice of leg wear has been deemed vulgar. The nerve of some people daring to wear tight jeans.

I don't much like this outfit, not the design, fit or material. It makes her look awkward.

Here's Catherine at the ceremony. I like the full-length view of this coat/dress.

I'm encouraged at work in the UK to wear my company's super skinny jeans aka jeggings. Don't tell her just yet.

I really liked Kate's coat, it was a very flattering cut but the color was old for her & I thought the fabric was a bit shiny.
I liked how the coat had very clean lines, I wish her hair was pulled back so you could see the shoulders and top part of the coat.
This is IMO one of the best coats she has worn fit wise.

I liked the fit, but agree that it was too old for her in some other respects. Not my favorite of her outfits.
