Kate's white top is part of the GB olympic uniform I think, it has the olympic logo on the side if you look at the close up pictures.

Many members do comment on other royals wearing short stuff, its not just Kate. If you look through Princess Letizia day & evening thread, almost every other page talks about how short her skirt/dress is. Mary does tend to wear short stuff every now & then, its all in the threads if you go through.

Kate's skirt isnt short IMO, such denim white skirts (thats what it looks like) are typical at this length, I think it would look odd if it was a bit longer.

I like the top and the skirt, she looks nice. The color is great on her. I really like her make up here, looks very nice and natural.

I really liked this outfit, until I saw her wearing her navy wedges with it. I would've picked a different shoe.

I get that they look good with the Team GB range, but I much preferred the pretty dresses that CP Mary wore along with her Team Denmark pieces. I'm sure we'll get a lot more variety on the Southeast Asia tour -- I hope so!
It's come up several times in the forum. The cup half full understanding is that the Duchess wants the focus to be on the athletes and the competition, rather than on what she is wearing. So she has been a bit on the repetitive, dull side of the clothing rack.
Of course the DM may still want to total the value of everything she has worn to the Olympics and write a piece about how much more her kit cost than the average Great Britain athlete's kit did. LOL

I think Catherine looks very cute in her white outfit. She's one of the few who can pull white-on-white off and look good. I'm not a fan of the top. It looked a bit too snug (now, there's nothing wrong with wearing form-fitting shirts if one has the figure [and Catherine certainly does], but to me, it looked a little too tight). As someone stated, a blue Team GB polo would have looked a bit better in this case, as well as a pair of ballet flats. The skirt is very cute, and appropriate for a hot day at a sporting event.

you're right IMO, after the roasting she got recently on the amount spent for her wardrobe, she is playing it safe. and i think she just wanted to be comfy!

I personally think it has nothing to do with the spending. Kate has been wearing the colors & the tops of the GB team/uniform as she is the ambassador.

The skirt is nice; a bit short but perfectly appropriate for the occasion.
I agree with dazzling about the top.

I don't particularly like this white outfit. Yes, the skirt is the best item here, but it's so dated. I do love her hair though!

The Duchess of Cambridge handing out medals earlier this afternoon (at least I think it was afternoon):

Full view from different angles:
House of Windsor

She looks very business-like, which I think is quite appropriate.

Very nice. I like the over all outfit.

Yes, I agree. The outfit reminds me of the navy dress and jacket she wore on the way to Canada. The outfit said, "I am going to work."

That very well could be the Roland Mouret dress she wore when went Canada. My first thought was the navy skirt from her Amanda Wakely suit, but I think the hemline is closer to the Mouret dress, although that dress seems to have a higher neckline than evident. The jacket is her oft worn Pucci blazer, with the Paralympic scarf. Lovely.

I think she looked very "businesslike" except for the shoes which scream "casual with jeans". A nice pair of court shoes would have looked better. As to her hair? If ever there was a time people would like to see her face clearly, this would be it!

I have to agree. They are nice shoes, but don't go with the rest of this outfit. Not on this occasion.

She looks like an air-hostess without the hat IMO. She could've looked better without the silky scarf which would work when she is a bit older. The suit looks really nice though and very professional.

i do agree, she looks like an air hostess. maybe she just didn't want to take the attention away from the winners but a less secretary-ish outfit would have done nicely.

it's nice to see her out and about though. i'm hoping to see her again today in the olympic park...

I think Catherine is trying out a kind of Team GB corporate official look, but I do think it looks very smart and efficient. A nice pair of plain, dark blue court shoes and a nice little hat with a badge on would have completed an air-hostess look, but then that would be too BA first class - the only air-hostesses on the planet who I am actually scared of!

Minus the shoes, I love the look. Very classy, sophisticated and elegant. I absolutely love those kinds of jackets.

The scarf is the official Paralympics GB scarf. Given that she was presenting the gold medal to a British athlete and is herself a Paralympics GB ambassador, she was quite right to wear the scarf despite the risk of looking like an air hostess.
