Her hair is fine IMO!
Glad I'm not the only one then. Though I have no problem with the color, but the way the dress looks. It reminds me of a really long shirt.

Very plain/dull dress IMO. DVF makes some lovely styles but this is not one of them. Nice color but not one of the most flattering on her, I think. It does look very comfortable, however. I think Catherine is beginning to look rather tired, it's a good thing this tour is almost over.

I love the green dress, simple and clean. I do wish she would have worn a necklace of some sort though. And yet again, I would have loved it if she would pulled her hair back, either partially or in a low ponytail. Oh well, there's a lot of time for her to work with that gorgeous mane of hers. I would think about getting another stylist that is a little more adverturous.

For the BAFTA event, Catherine wears a lavender Alexander McQueen gown, with earrings lent by the Queen specifically for the event!!

Waiting for a good picture but not loving it. Kind of pedestrian.

Love the color. Subtle and pretty.

I think it's gorgeous. Soft and pretty without being too young for her. I'm looking forward to pictures of the earrings.

Also can you imagine what a godsend Kate has been for Sarah Burton? There were people who doubted Burton's ability to lead after McQueen's death but with the help of the Duchess the brand's getting a huge boost.

I think it looks elegant and chic....I just wish she had worn her hair up. I feel like the hair down distracts from the overall look

I like her dress and most of the clothes that she used in the tour and i like her hair, i think she has a beautiful hair , just that all the time it is the same style, i am sorprise she does not change, she should to have Mary's stylist, Soren, he really does wonders with Mary's hair, all the time different, I never get boring, Kate has such a nice hair and long yo can do anyting with it!

I love this dress. It's simple but chic. The color is really pretty too.

Is that the belt she wore to the evening wedding reception?

No, I don't think so. Looks quite different.

Goregeous! Love the color, the light shade of lavender, and the flowy fabric!

The fabric, flow, color and cut is nice and simple but the hair left open ruined it all for me. Her hair stylist could've made a simple up-do especially since the neckline is quite high, moreover this was an evening event which would've been perfect. The earrings look lovely but again you hardly notice them with the hair pulled all to the front.
