I totally agree. What a dreary dress. Just hangs on her, is too short, and the cut would be better on a woman with some more curves.
If it is a youth event, how about matching Williams look, maybe slacks, something fun.

I'm in the group too. This time her dress is a bit disappointing; not bad in terms of cut but the gloomy color...

I don't agree ,the dress suited Kate perfectly,while the woman "with more curves" could look fat in the same outfit.She is slim and tall,a perfect model for such a suit.But I would prefer to see her in more vivid colours

I'd have to agree with you. Bigger women would look just terrible in this outfit. She pulled it off beautifully.

Kate and William are at the evening Canada Day celebrations and she's wearing a purple dress with her hair up. It also appears that she's wearing the maple leaf brooch.

From what I can see, she looks great.

Yeah some colour other then navy blue. I like the dress and her hair. She needs to wear more colour there is too much navy blue. Maybe she thinks she needs it too look professional but she is young and colour can be just as nice! Nice to see her hair different and the brooch.

I love her evening attire and hairdo. The purple dress makes the maple leaf brooch stand out, and she looks very youthful and relaxed. Well done yet again :).

Isn't this the same dress she wore for the engagement interview, but in different color? I know the other one is navy blue.

I like the brooch's history but I really still dislike it as a fashion statement- I think it's too old for her. I wish she'd have used it in a different way- maybe as a pendant on a necklace or as something for her hair.

Daria -- I think it is, if not the same dress, extremely similar.

Hermione -- I completely agree! Would have loved to see her do something unique with the brooch, but I suppose she's still "feeling her way" and doesn't want to set a foot wrong. She'll get more adventurous over time, I'll warrant.

A shot from a video, you can see better the front of the dress. Searching for it online, and could only find similar ones

Thank you so much for the clarification.

Mia_Mae, the fist picture you posted is fabulous. He looks at her like she's the only person in the world. It's great to see them having a fun evening.

I really like this dress. Especially the detailing in the front.
