Catherine looked lovely. I think she is growing into her position. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come.

Perhaps her second best evening look behind last years black strapless number. Both times she looked beautiful.
I also need a better image of those shoes, from what I can tell they look fantastic, I just need some better pix!

Whilst not being a fan of the "Negligee" eveningwear trend, I thought the back view was very interesting, if giving a little too much exposure, and we would never have seen the beautiful neck and shoulder line merging into a full back row of buttons, if she had not worn an up do. Makes me yearn for the detailing we have missed before.

I share your love of the Jimmy Choos, Xenia. They're fun without looking tacky or cheap. Although they weren't the star of the show last night.

Finally her hair is up - and what a big disappointment, she looks much more better with her hair down. The up hairdo just highlights her thinness which is also seen in her face, and makes her look much older. The cleavage is too revealing and doesn't work well on a woman who has so little to show. The colour of the dress is very lovely indeed, and the colour suits her well.

I agree - I am surprised nobody has pointed out before. I find the neckline far too low on this dress. Not a fan of the lace at all, the "shoulder pads" are ugly and the backside is painful to watch.

On the positive side - the colour is gorgeous and I absolutely love the hairdo. The eye make up is too harsh for me but Kate looks very pretty.

Although not perfect, Catherine has really stepped it up! And, wow, she looked radiant and stunning.

It was a lovely feminine dress in an ideal color for her. I really like the mix of fabrics, however I find that the different shades do not match particularly well. I am really glad she wore open toe shoes with this dress, and although I have not been a fan of this particular pair of Jimmy Choo's, I actually don't mind them with this dress.

The updo was gorgeous and the jewelry lovely. Her makeup was a little heavy, but that is how she likes it, and it was an evening event so...

The only element I really dislike (although I like the lace) is the low neckline and low back - it is too celebrity for me. That aside, Catherine looked like a sophisticated and glamours princess.

I think she knows that having her hair down is a better bet for her for a variety of reasons- but she is a very pretty woman and having her hair up is a very freeing and elegant look for her. As someone mentioned, one can very easily see a tiara tucked in there or glittery hairpins.

I found her ensemble and whole look overall very fetching, with only minor issues. The gown is gorgeous - love the way the designer worked with the fabric and folds and lace and colors - really cutting edge to my mind. Loved the flow of it as she walked. Must have been wonderful to wear, feeling the dress ripple about one. Is it silk?

Have to agree - the back is painful to look at. We will have no surcease from the make-up any time soon it appears, either. But she really did look quite lovely in this outing - and very happy and seemingly relaxed.

With regard to the low back, if you look carefully at the pictures from the back, there seems to be a line of color change right below her shoulder blades. I have decided that there is a nude lining of some kind from that point down.

I thought Catherine looked lovely, though there is something that is keeping me from saying this dress is my favorite. Unfortunately, I can't put my finger on what it is.

I like her hairdo, although it exposes her bad posture.
It's amazing what a good straight posture does to you and the gown you wear.

Actually, you're right about the flesh-toned material, but I believe its starts just below her neck right at the top button. You can also see it on her shoulders as well.

While Catherine is very thin I don't think this is ugly on her.
It's funny to hear you pointing to her thinness while you never do it for one of your favourite royal (Letizia) who is in my opinion bonny (remember her ugly back in a strapless purple dress in William and Catherine pre wedding dinner hosted by the queen not to mention her skinny arms)

I think Catherine looked absolutly gorgeous.Everything looked perfect:dress,hairdo,shoes and even the heavy make-up which was ok for an evening event.
Lady Finn,while you say the dress is revealing you say that she has nothing to reveal that's funny
I don't think the cleavage is revealing and more important she doesn't look vulgar.

Letizia is in a whole a petite woman, Kate is a tall woman, 10 cm taller than Letizia. That makes a big difference to me.
