I think we may have to wait until Wednesday evening when the awards show is on the TV to get a really good look at that necklace.

It just occurred to me that the dress is somewhat reminiscent of Diana's black taffeta dress by the Emanuels- the slight ruffle detail at the sweetheart neckline made me think of it.

I think it looks stunning- simple, but very elegant.

Slightly better view of the necklace:

Is that a matching bracelet or the bracelet we've seen several times previously, most recently at the In Kind Direct reception?

At first I thought it was the bracelet we'd seen before, but in that picture it does appear to match- the stones are pink on both pieces. (Sapphires I guess?)

Maybe it's a convertible piece and the colored stones can be changed out for diamonds?

And are those the earrings we've seen her wear before too? I can't wait to get closeups of these.

Very nice black gown. Easily one of her best looks.
But, a few minor things; I really want her to push the hair away from her face. It just bothers me, probably irrationally so, but still.
And maybe an opinion I shouldn't express but a few pounds on her wouldn't hurt. Dare say her skin would get better from it, especially on the long run. There's no need in aging like Stephanie.

Love the dress; it does look like the taffeta Emmanuel that Diana wore in the 80s. That necklace does look like it's convertible to tiara. I'm so happy to see her in a signicant piece of jewelry. I also agree that her hair; while quite luxious and beautiful; would be nice if she tamed it a bit.

I think overall she looks great! Her hair and make-up seem better at least to me. Yeah her hair is hanging down, but can we at least hope she doesn't run her fingers through it and mess it up?

She looks lovely (and the eyeshadow was smudged a bit - looks better at night any way). Looks like she used a matte powder in addition to her usual liquid look - I hope she makes it a habit (she does look hot, and there's nothing wrong with her wanting to look sexy in daytime too).

I was thinking the EXACT thing about the reference to Diana's 1980's black strapless gown! The tailoring on Catherine's dress is perfection in my opinion, she looked breathtaking! Loved the ruffles, the slim fit to the knee, and the flair at the bottom is just great.

Beautiful, luxuriant gown. I like the frill around the bodice and the sweep of the skirt. Kate looks lovely, but would have looked spectacular with her hair in an updo to showcase that knockout necklace. Unfortunately, it obscures the view of what looks to be a marvelous piece of jewelry.
