Tall indeed, not liking the bare shoulders.

I like the hair but the dress ... another nightgown, the top part is very bikini, something to cover herself up is missing. The colour is dreadful, not a good choice.

I'm agreeing Duke, a little celebrity like. Hair is very pretty though.

I thought she looked nice for a last minute event. Most likely its a dress she bought for her California trip. I wonder if she has pre shopped in anticipation of future events.

I definitely agree Rubies and Duke of Marmelade. She looks lovely, her hair is pretty but the gown is not a good choice this time. An insipid shade of pale blue grey chiffon and the dress does rather resemble a night gown. The bodice is also not a very flattering design for her. At least she is trying out different gown styles.

Gosh this place really gets me down with all the criticism. It's just so depressing. I'm thinking I'm just going to have to stop visiting these threads.

I think the dress is lovely. It certainly doesn't look like any nightgown I've ever seen.

You are right, the criticism does appear never ending! Perhaps the dress was not necessarily the cutting edge of fashion, but I thought she looked lovely.

I like the color and cut. Only bad thing are beaded strips on the top - too much IMO. These in center which are also straps are ok, but these around Kate's neck are not necessary. Overall not bad, especially if it wasn't planed event.

I think the dress is very pretty, and her hair looks nice.
It can't be easy to step in for someone at the last minute, and she did very well.

Does anyone know who the designer of the dress is?

In the scheme of things, it's not a bad look. Kate has beautiful shoulders and arms and it's nice to see them displayed. The gown doesn't overwhelm her and suits her willowy figure, but of course I'd have love to see it in a stronger color. I love her hair like that, and the style showcases her earrings well. As far as the hair extensions, I don't quite see the need for someone with such glorious hair to use them, but supposedly it's for more volume.

I actually like this dress - she looked lovely. I don't believe she has worn a dress with this type neck/shoulder design, so it's a nice surprise. It seems she's experimenting a little.

Here's a front view.

Mirabel, none of the fashion blogs/twitters have been able to identify it yet.

A dress absolutely appropriate for her as the daughter(-in law) of the house as the event took place at her in-law's residence, where she is family, not another guest.

I think she looks fantastic, the best I have seen her since the Canadian trip. The color is wonderful and I love the designs at the top. The only time I have ever seen a nightgown that looked like that is in Star Wars. It's also nice to see her hair in a different style, makes me wonder if she only wears it down when she is with William. Is it appropriate to call Kate petite? She's a thin girl, but she's a tall one which makes me think she isn't exactly petite. Homegirl is even towering over the men.

I do love the dress, the colour and the shape of the dress very young and modern, lovely in comparison to the guests...

It was reported as a vintage Amanda Wakeley evening gown.
