I liked Kate's appearance. By dressing as she did, the focus was on the athletes versus her which is as it should be, imo.

She looks wonderful and professional

Though I still think she managed to be the centre of attention. It's not her fault really!

I love the scarf, I think Kate should wear scarves more often.

Nice outfit but I hate these wedges. She has plenty of black and navy heels which would be much more elegant and suitable for that event. I don't like Kate's new hair color, too yellow in my opinion, she looks better with dark brown locks.

YAY SOMEONE ELSE UNDERSTANDS THIS. If she'd worn heels, she would have aerated the lawn. Just sank right in. It had to be wedges, or flats. This is a rule of lawn sport spectating.

That was my first thought, too.

Despite the Air Hostess outfit, she looked glowing. She seemed really excited and humbled to be there.

I have been one of the staunchest defenders of wedges, but the two-tone wedges here in black and tan don't go with the outfit.

Bad shoes, just don't go with the oufit. could have worn the scarf in her breast pocket, the way she wore it looks too air hostessy

Well I for one thought she looked quite nice. Yes maybe a little air hostess like but quite clean and businesslike. I rather like the look. I really like the wedges, always have.

I understand about the wedges but... couldn't she find a pair with black or darker jute instead of the glaring light straw color? They wouldn't be as in your face then..

Smart choice for presenting the medals - my only issue was the dress underneath was very figure hugging and you could see it bumped up at the edge of the jacket at times. I dont have a problem with her wearing her favourite wedges they would have been comfortable and more practical than heels
This is the stuff of fairytales
