I don't mind the actual shape of the coat, or the colour, but it's just too shiny. That kind of shiny material ages the wearer.

Let's face it, though, if there was ever an occasion where Kate's outfit isn't that important, it's this one.

Love the coat dress. Is it floor length?
Especially love the fit in the shoulders and the "princess" seams in the bodice.
Too bad about the blanket of hair about the shoulders, would have liked to see the top better. A very long loose chignon, with those curls, would look lovely on her.

I like the outfit but I think it would be more appropriate for winter/Christmas time, not high summer.

I think the ice blue/mint green (depends on the lighting) coat-dress was quite lovely and appropriate. The only thing I dislike is the shiny fabric, but everything else is perfectly fine.

I can only add: too shiny for me!

Can I just add that the flashes from the camera are to blame for making the fabric appear more shiny than it is?

In longer shots of the opening ceremony, the fabric is fine.

I like the icy color of the dress, but not so much the style and for me Kate excels in jewel tones. I didn't care for the shiny fabric, though. And I thought the jeans/jeggings she wore for the Olympic torch arrival looked painfully tight to the point where they creased in areas they shouldn't have and defined too much of her body. Perhaps she gained some weight, which is a good sign, but she should have worn a looser style and a longer shirt. The wedges she wore were too high; she should have worn flats or sneakers. But the color was great and fitted in well with the athletes' clothing.

I cannot understand why she keeps using these coat dresses, they are really unflaterring...and not in fashion at all!!

Because she likes them. They're smart and elegant and suit almost every occasion. They are very much in fashion at the moment actually.

I like Kate in coat dresses they are elegant but i wasnt keen on the one she wore for the Olympics opening cermony. The shiny satin effect seemd wrong for the event

I love a princess in a coat dress and Kate wears them particularly well IMO.

I agree with you. That last blue one she wore was so unflattering and makes her look much older than she is.

Kate attending Day 3 of the Equestrian events. I really love her casual style.

I like this look very much. I love a good blazer-and-jeans combo. She looks great.

Yet again, wish she would have choosen a cute skirt instead of these skinny jeans. Or even a nice pair of long/just-above-the-knee shorts.

Just hate the shoes! Look cheap.
Isn't it hot in London? Why is she wearing a dark blazer?
Well not like it at all!

LOVE the shoes,similar to Mary's ones worn yesterday. It's not an official event, they were probably worn for comfort. it's not hot in the UK at the minute, sunny but with a cool breeze over most of the UK with odd showers.

I like the whole look, shoes included.
A jacket-jeans combination is always a winner, and the wedges are pretty nice.

I love the whole look. Maybe a pair of flats instead of wedges... And are those the LK Bennett wedges?
