I like the pink dress. Color more than style.

I like the color very much but not the material. Too many creases & wrinkles, IMO.

Over priced for us common folk, or overpriced for Royalty? I doubt the Duke and Duchess are going to go broke anytime soon, LOL...

Overpriced for what it is, not who is buying it....

I like it on Madonna too. I think the evening light and flurry of paparazzi flashes is making it look shinier than normal on Kate. I also think it could do with a bit of tailoring.

Otherwise it is NOT a good choice, I actually think Madonna looks better in the dress than Catherine.

Sometimes buying things on sale just really don't work.
I agree with every point of your post, especially about Stella McCartney being overrated.

While it's nice to see some colour on the Duchess, this particular shade isn't the most flattering, IMO. As a matter of fact, NOTHING about this dress is flattering.

The amazing part of all this is how Kate still manages to look newlywed-lovely, despite the dress.

Actually , the dress is not bad at all and has a lovely colour. But I don't think, it looks good on Kate. Her hair does not look good also.

The only complaint I have about this dress is that it's so wrinkled. That said, I love seeing her in a bright color that's not blue.

I really don't like the dress:

I like it, but on Catherine. I think the colour suits her well. A bit to shiny for my taste, again, but it looks really pretty on her. I wouldn't say it's one her best choices, but she managed to look very nice in it.

that type of fabric will show any wrinkles, snags and reflects badly when photograph-heads up imo stay with that color but not that fabric plus shes dosent have curves so that style of dress might not suite her until after having a child or two or three or lets keep it even how about four

Not a fan of this particular outfit. I like the color, but not the style of the dress.

I too like seeing her in brighter colors, so I hope she wears some colorful outfits during the upcoming tour.

I like the color and the fabric, but not the tight neckline. This, I'm sure is one of the reasons that the Duchess likes the more flattering v neckline. That one is not flattering.

They look a lot more relaxed in these shots. Maybe it's the more casual atmosphere. William looks especially comfortable sans tie and suit jacket.

I dont understand why another black/dark outfit, yes it is casual and as William is dressed quite casual this is the perfect dress style, but some color would've been lovely especially as it is summer.
She seems like she is dressing and mourning someone. Sorry but the look doesn't appeal to me.

I wouldnt mind some colour too but all dresses are professional, with a clean cut an no frills. I really like Kate's style although, because of her age, some "young" accessories to pep up wouldnt hurt.

What I find boring indeed is the frozen make-up & hairstyle, it only adds to the "old" or "too mature" look. It is a good idea for women like Camilla, HM, most Queen consorts go for the "frozen" look but Kate is defo too young for that.
