The dress is growing on me. At first I did not like it but seeing it again this a.m. I think it looks very lovely. I've also noted that many of the runway looks have this "transparent" look about them so despite the comments about her not being up to date ... apparently she very much up to date. I do agree I would have loved to have seen her hair in a loose chignon. I am not much for up dos as I think most of them look very contrived and as if they are kept in place with super glue. :)

Laura Linney wasn't an actor in the series, she was the host for Masterpiece that broadcasts Downton Abbey in the U.S. She introduced the characters and gave a brief synopsis of DA, and that was the outfit she was wearing that I described. Anyone on the forum watching this in the U.S. last night would know the outfit I meant.

I have to admit that I'm not a big fan of the dress. Too much lace going on. I think a lacy dress should be left on a short one, like the blue lace she wore in Canada.

Same hair, same makeup... Boring.
And the dress just looks sad. Don't get me wrong black can be beautiful like the velvet looking one. And lace can be great too. But this dress is just wrong.

I don't understand why she keep that look all the time (almost).
Often we see other princesses wear the same dress three or four times, and still manage to look different every time because they change hair, makeup, jewels and so on...
The Duchess often manage to look boring the first time she wears an outfit IMO.

I don't think Catherine wants to be high fashion. If you are waiting on that I would advise not to hold your breath. Lets just enjoy her simple elegance. She will never be fashion forward.

Yeah that's a rut alright :note sarcams: Only thing I don't like is the hair, this is one time she should have tried something different.

Oh DM, it certainly wasnt "the epitome of glamour" but rather went wrong
Kate Middleton wore lace and it was the epitome of glamour, but it's a look that can easily go horribly wrong | Mail Online

I dont get Kate's need to add a belt to every dress she wears.

Oh alright! I was so confused there.

And I agree Duke of Marmalade. Then you scroll down and see Anne Hathaway and Claudia Schiffer and they wear their lace much better. They're glamour, Kate looked pretty good, but not glamorous. Jennifer Lopez, that's Glamour with a bang. Not the nicest dress, but glamour nonetheless.

I think that this dress was a fine choice for going to a movie about WW1. I think that a dress in a vibrant colour and/or with too much skin showing wouldn't have been appropriate.

Oh, I must disagree! I thought Schiffer looked terrible, why those ruffles bunching around her waist? Hathaway did look too bridal, red lipstick or not.
And I never have liked JLo in anything, she never looks classy.

But I think the DM got it right in their other choices.

I thought Jennifer Lopez looked awful and really don't care how she looks most of the time. I do in general like the use of lace, but in smaller quantities. Anything too much looks like a curtain, a tablecloth, a doily....take your pick!

The dress she wore to the " War Horse" premiere was not my favorite Cathrine dress, but the Duchess still looked amazing! A unique dress.

Out of the DM list of those who got it right Anne Hathaway epitomised the way to wear lace. Lustrous dark brown hair juxtaposed with heavy cream lace, hair arranged to one side to emphasise the unique neckline, and ballerina length to give the whole look elegance. Mommy.

As for Catherine's lace curtains? What was going on with the saucy slit in the back from the neckline? That was just plain wrong!

The bottom up to the mid-section is nice, but then I see the top and cringe. That is one boring dress. The top should have been a different one, in my opinion. Atleast the structure. And I would add more of a pop. A belt, shoes, clutch. Anything to break all the grey.

I quite like this dress on the Duchess. My one complaint about her evening looks in general is that she isn't flattered when her shoulders are showing. This, however, is beautiful on her. She can wear a portrait collar and a double-breasted front like no-one else can!

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, looked all right. However, a sleek straight hairstyle would have been a better choice.
