Am thrilled to see the hair up... like the colour of the gown on her and the bit of lace is just charming enough she looked really cute.IMO

A very lovely look, perfection! Hopefully Catherine will opt for more color in the future as she wears it well and it really is stunning on her. I would not be surprised, however, if she sticks to nuetrals when she is in the company of the other royal ladies simply because color on her makes her stand out even more.

She's finally heading in the right direction when it comes to style and versatility.

Kate looks magnificent and Wiliam looks ever so proud of her, and he has every right to be so

Maybe William volunteered for that arduous task, though his fingers aren't quite delicate enough for doing up those small buttons!

I think Kate's hair looks great at this event. I also got a good glimpse of the shoes and they do seem to be the same Jimmy Choos she wore with the white dress; they work much better with this dress IMO. Seeing her in a dress like this makes me realize that summer is on the way for some and is already here for others.
As for the plunging neckline, I feel that it would be vulgar on someone who had a bountiful bosom because you would be able to see inside the dress and the side of their breast. But for someone like Kate I don't find it vulgar because nothing is being shown. I felt the same way with her wedding dress and Pippa's bridesmaids dress. People with different body types can get away with different fashion choices.

If you can see the inside and the side, the woman shouldn't even be wearing that dress, because that's an ill-fitting one.

It's amazing what a good straight posture does to you and the gown you wear.
My thoughts exactly, the long hair and slouch have gone together and are a very common bad habit.

Catherine looked really lovely, I love her hair, it's nice that she wore it up for a change although she looks quite stunning with her hair down too. The dress is fantastically beautiful, I'm normally not very fond of teal dresses, but this one is really beautiful, if she wasn't as thin as she is I think it would suit her a bit better, but I definitely don't think it looks silly on her just because she's thin. A really wonderful look.

This is the one factor that detracts enough to make her normal, not regal. Once you see it it's hard to watch. Mary of Denmark either always had or has developed a regal stance - which just means good posture: her shoulders are back and her head up, aligned with her spine. Makes all the difference but if not trained early it has to be a conscious discipline to hold the correct posture.

Talking about her hair-do, while the design is nice, it's not properly done. If you compare hers to Mary, I find her hairdo has too many stray hairs popping up here and there. It's not been smooth down properly before braiding.

i think a lot of her posture has to do with the veru high heels she wears. they pitch you forward and it is almost impossible to stay squared shoulder.

Mary's hair is more silky and less tick comparing with Kate's hair, but she does look good with an updo.

Should we really be comparaing Kate's updo with Mary's? I think not. Discussing and comparing are not the same.

Finally an updo!
She looked beautiful with her hair like that. Hope she does that more often.

Maybe people can't help to think about Mary as she's knowen by her updos, also because Kate never wore her hair up, but she really looks stunning, and we don't have to compare, because they don't have the same quality of hairs.

I think Kate looks nice wether she have her hair up or down then again it depends on the dress and her choice to hairstyle. The dress she wore on the other hand I didn't like very much I think it's because of the lace back with buttons but the color is nice.

I do too, but it's refreshing to change up once in awhile.

I do think the dress required her hair to be up. I bet she would've worn it down, but her hair would've taken away the beauty of the dress. Wonder if she needed some coaxing to put it up.....
