She was very well dressed and looked pretty. Beautiful shoes and bracelet. I liked her hair, but please, stop touching it!

The cut of the portrait collar is very flattering in the DOC, and I especially like the embellishment of the belt. Nice bracelet bling, and good shoes/bag. Agree, watched the video, stop the nervous habit of hair touching, or wear it up!

I think she looked elegant and classy, which is how she looks almost all the time. Those heels made me cringe. She could have done some serious damage to herself if she tripped on the steps. Here are some more pictures.

Pretty dress, jewelry and accessories, and that's such a flattering portrait collar on Kate. I'm glad to see her experimenting with styles, but she's got to stop fidgeting with her hair! What good is four hours in a salon if you're constantly running your hand through it?

I think this is perfectly suited to the engagement. Everything works together for me.

The makeup is a tad heavy handed. I would have LOVED the dress had it been tea length and in another fabric. Looks like something TPR would pull out of her 1950s closet.

However, she does look nice enough. High heels and short skirts are a bit dated.

But, she is working and I'm all about that.

I love the dress, shoes, and hair. It actually looks like she did something different with her hair; not a big change, but styled a little different. I love the color and fabric of her dress; it looks really sleek and elegant. This is the one time I would actually buy something Kate wore. Plus I'd buy the shoes, though I'd fall on my butt.
Is this from the store Kate usually shops at? Because this look appears more fashion friendly than her other ones which people tended to call boring.

She looks radiant! She's trimmed her hair and I love the dress! The whole ensemble suits her. Well done Kate!

I actually thought the make up is getting better and less harsh than it used to be. The dress is very pretty and Kate looked very nice overall.

She needs to do something about the hair rather than constantly touching it as if it gave her something to do with her hands, and this wall of hair hanging down gives Kate such a bad posture.

I love her bracelet and the earrings are very lovely. I'd love to see the necklace up close. The pendant on there looks like a disc of some sort. The hair fidgeting is a little irritating, but since I work with kids who have special needs, I've learned to overlook small things like that and just concentrate on the bigger picture (then again, a child with developmental delays playing with his/her hair and a typically developed public figure doing the same are not exactly on the same level....the teacher in me is thinking of reinforcements and sticker charts for Catherine to work on that hair playing habit ).

Picky, picky. How about overlooking small unimportant details and focus on the incontrovertible fact that she looks amazing!

That may be Kate's diamond disc pendant that she's worn before and discussed in the jewelry thread. And from what I can see of her earrings in photos where her hair is away from her face, she's wearing those lovely art-deco ones.

And maybe the bracelet she first wore to the BAFTA event in Los Angeles and on several occasions.
