There are high heels and then there are stilts! Louboutin has an excellent website that lists the Pumps, and then breaks them down further by:
  • Mid Heel
  • High
  • Sky High
I would venture to guess that Catherine's tend to be heading more toward the 150mm than 70mm.

Check it out. The 70mm shoes look just as divine as the 150mm!

But what is wrong with her shoes? They really lovely; to die for LOL. They are the same ones from the BAFTA event, correct? She looked lovely.

and William is tall - they look nice together. Not like the days with Diana when she had to wear little court shoes or kitten heels so as not to tower over Charles. Kate wears the heels and wears them well - she looks lovely!

Kate looks so beautiful! I love everything about this gown and all her others as well. She definitely knows what looks good and makes a great impression every time.

She looks lovely! I adore the dress, and it also looks like her figure is filling out a bit in a way that suits her very well.

Kate has years and years to wear her hair in an upsweep, or get it cut.
While she has such lovely long hair, why not show it off?

Shoes are great, IMO. And I love her hair, as well - I agree she has years and years of beautiful long locks before doing anything else. If her husband is anything like mine, he enjoys looking at that hair daily.

I really do like her hair in the half-way up fashion. She pulls that look off quite well and it softens her features too.

I don't see why Kate can't wear her hair in an upsweep or chignon for eveningwear when she wears stunning earrings like those drops. They'd certainly be seen to their best possible advantage with that type of style. And we always see her wear her hair down during daytime, anyway, so mixing it up for a more formal look on special occasions would be a treat, IMO.

I can definitely see the advantage of that .

They are ugly. That heel height will ruin her feet. Women who wear heels like that usually end up wobbling at the ankles because they are actually trying to balance on their toes. Unless you are in a Vegas chorus line or a member of the world's oldest profession, a lower heel is more tasteful and elegant.

Agree. She looked amazing and I adore this dress. The hairdo is beautiful, on one side they are attached and on the other one they are curly. New earrings?

dont like the shoes. But not really important. We dont see much of them.

Kate looks great apart from the FAR TOO HEAVY make up, she is still young, I wonder what will happen in 10 years time, there is Drag-Queen Potential.

I love the dress & earrings, ugly shoes.

What a lovely, lovely look. This graecian style gown is absolutely beautiful on Kate. The silver shade is perfect with her dark hair and the satin ribbon at the waiste brings an elegant finishing touch to the entire look. The earrings of course are just superb.

Simply W O N D E R F U L dress, 100 times better than the last one.
Great jewels, but too much makeup this time.
