maybe she should wear clothes with a message like"dont eat meat" or " save the whales" or "im just dressing for the occaision so dont put me in the human coat-hanger group"..just joking or maybe "im more than what i wear"

It's so hard not to experiment with makeup, IMO. But Kate obviously likes keeping it the same. I don't get it, myself, but...it is what it is!

I do not think that she interested to experiment and to surprise. She has her style, which IMO is very nice for her rank, and she does not want to go further.
She wants to avoid to be a fashion icon, even if she IS ONE. When everything she wears is immediately sold out, wouldn't we call this a fashion icon?

Different hair and makeup from time to time would indeed make Catherine look more interesting from a fashion point of view.....however, if she started all that now and looked different each time we saw her, there would be nothing left to look forward to! As time goes on, there'll be more and more events such as state banquets and visits and tours and things and I'm sure it will be then that we will see new ideas.

I'd have to agree most people don't really change their style that much in their lifetime. Look at the Queen, for example, her style hasn't significantly changed from the time she first became queen. Plus, everyone is different and style should be comfortable and represent you not that a person should be defined by their style. Besides, other than some fine tuning Kate really doesn't have to change her style much. Sometimes it is refreshing not to have every public figure be a "fashion icon" or "fashion forward" or anything. Though I am a bit biased because I like Kate and have always liked her and her style.

Not only that Fashion isn't the most important part of her role. I hate to bring up Diana, but alot of what I know and remember about Diana is her close not to say that her legacy with the charities she has supported aren't also remembered, but in truth, at least in my opinion, alot of what defined Diana was her fashion. Kate isa different beast or person rather.

I'm with you.

Kate is wearing a strapless black floor length gown at the Sun Military Awards tonight. Seems very plain from what I just saw on Sky News. Hair is down again.

According to Richard Palmer on Twitter, her dress is from Alexander McQueen. She also wears some jewellery she got as wedding present.

But one can at least hope that Kate would vary her look and wear her hair up once in a while for formal events. That wouldn't scream "fashion icon" to me if she did this on occasion; she'd just be taking advantage of versatility with long hair. She's done so before, so it's not a matter of being locked into one certain look. I know she's obviously comfortable with her trademark hairstyle, but at least for evening wearing an upswept hairstyle suitable for the event and gown would be a nice change.

She's not wearing any sort of coat or shawl so she's bound to be freezing cold. Perhaps keeping her hair long is a way of keeping her neck and shoulders warm? Or maybe Prince William just adores her hair long and flowing? I've heard that suggested as to why she had her hair down at the her wedding.

Same! I hope they release some information about it, but they probably won't.

It also looks to me like it might be able to convert into a tiara... is that just me?

I had exactly the same thought. Pity she's unlikely to have to wear a tiara anytime soon.

Well, there are the tour events in 2012- there's at least a decent possibility of a tiara event then. We can dream at least.

Yes, I really liked the dress too- I just got momentarily distracted by the bling
