Scroll down in the article and you'll see Kate at a family dinner for Prince Philip's birthday.

I really don't like the dress:

I don't like this dress at all. The color is OK, but that's about it. It reminds me of a house coat/bath robe.

From what we can see, not liking the dress. Maybe there is a full view shot later on.

Ups, hadnt realized that there is an eveningwear thread!

I agree with you, Duke of Marmalade. The dress seems ill fitting, which is rare for Kate and the colour doesn't really suit her. Although, like you I'll concede that we can't really judge until we get some better shots (hopefully in better lighting, too).

That is one unflattering dress fabric & style wise, though the color is great IMO.

Hate to be contrarian, but I do like the pink shiny dress on Kate. Can't see enough to decide if it is ill-fitting, I just think its lovely to see some colour on her.

I don't like the dress but then, I never like anything by Stella McCartney. She's overrated, imo.

Has it been confirmed that the dress was by Stella?

Not just your opinion either. I rarely see anything designed by her that I like. I like the color on Kate (finally, people can see some color) but I need a better picture of the dress. So far not liking it. Autumn and Zara look nice though.

I'm not keen on the colour or the material from those photos. It's a kind of soft slipper-satin kind of material in what I would call "Krystal Carrington" pink, but it's a bit too shiny and polyester like! Well, I suppose I can't approve of Catherine's style ALL the time ;-))

I take back my comment about liking everything Catherine will wear as long as her hair remains long and beautiful..

I do not like this dress. At all. The colour is interesting, as is the style. But if Catherine feels comfortable in it, who are we to question?

From everything I've ever seen from her, the red Stella dress is number one on her worst outfits ever for me. Damn, that is ugly. Madonna wore it before and you know that when she wears something better than you, you have to get a better mirror. Or better friends who will tell you to take that rag off.

Well, f-ck me, I just realised this is a seperate thread now. For clarity: this comment belongs in the evening wear.

That is not an attractive, or a a flattering dress at all imo. Oh, Kate. You were doing so well. I guess we are all allowed mistakes though!
