I'm puzzled as to what hair has to do with evening wear, but I'll comment too.

I had my lovely, flowing sable locks cut short; was mortified, grew it out again and promptly got a pixie cut. It's been short ever since and I think when I retire in a couple of years, I'm going to let it grow again to avoid the haircutter.

I am not a fan of one's hair becoming a distraction. Even when Kate is talking to someone, she is often doing that hair-twizzling thing that drives me batty.

That can be a sign of nerves too though.

Goodness...I realize things are slow in Cambridge watching.

But are we still talking about hair?

Doesn't bother me at all. It's just one of her "quirks".

My two cents!

I would bet dollars to donuts that William loves her long hair, and likes her to wear it down. I don't think she is making the hair decisions unilaterally, but rather is taking into account what her husband likes and wants of her. And if he likes it down, that's all that matters right now.

As for the fidgeting and constant touching, smoothing, flipping, of her hair, I do hope she learns not to do this, it's very distracting and a bit inelegant.

But in some pictures she was doing it whilst talking to somebody else or listening to a speech. It makes her appear less focused. I doubt it's a sign of nerves because she rarely does it when it's up/in an elaborate style and she's so confident. It just seems to be an unfortunate habit. No doubt she'll have to get it cut or have it up more at some point.

It really is just my opinion, but it wouldn't bother me if she was talking to me and moved her hair!

I can tell that it annoys you, ...me, not so much. Different strokes for different folks as the saying goes.

I'm with you. She can twirl her hair in my presence if she desires. Heck, I'm sure I have a great deal of habits that others may find offensive (I fiddle with my jewelry all the time, and need to have something in my hands to prevent myself from fiddling with my fingers).

Some of the Royals have to buy long hair, e.g. Charlene with her chignons, and Grace with her huge hairpieces - she used to add several of them in the course of a day, apparently.

Most women with long hair do fiddle with their hair. It's just a natural habit. I don't know why it's such an issue.

Kate does have a beautiful head of hair which really suits her. She also looks very elegant when it is pulled back into a classic form of twisted "bun" in the nape of her neck. I do love this look on her especially with an evening gown. As for her evening wear, she always chooses a classic yet sophisticated look with no fuss and frills. I see Sara Burton is fast becoming a good designer for her. The pale lavender Graecian gown she wore in Canada recently was romantic and whimsical. I always love the little clutch bags she uses to assessorise. Kate is certainly becoming a real icon making the "A" grade in elegant fashion wear.

Of course she had hair pieces. Do you think that these enormeous voluminous chignons were her hair??

Caroline also had in some REd Cross balls, she was 17-18 years old and had short hair, and suddenly appeared to the ball with hair up...

as for Catherine, allo her to have a small tick...

13/10/11 The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at a fundraising Gala evening in aid of the Child Bereavement Charity
http://images.mirror.co.uk/upl/m4/oc...-732983355.jpg

Great colour for Kate, the hair as usual. I am missing some jewellery and all in all the dress is too nightgown-ish for me.
If I didnt know Kate's age I would ask myself when looking at William why they allowed him to marry a much older woman.
