Kate doesn't usually wear her hair up anyway. Perhaps she doesn't like it away from he face for whatever reason. Even on her wedding day, she had a side swipped bang. It seems too soon to definitely say she hasn't worn her hair up again because of the hoopla over her scar, at least IMO.

Kate's two-piece outfit for today's première of African Cats:
- Full view 1 - Full view 2
- Close up 1 - Close up 2
- Back view - The clutch

I'm not sure I like this look at all.
The makeup is too heavy for my taste although she did tone down the black eyeliner a bit.
The lovely details on the neck and sleeves save the outfit from being too boring but overall it's just an average look.

Not a fan of the look. I don't think the details looks good against the dress.

Perfectly nice dress for this kind of event where some people are in jeans and others are in full on evening gown. The detailing is really pretty and lifts what would otherwise be a plain dress.

Glad to see her giving Matthew Williamson some love, he's underrated in my opinion.

I think the African stones on the neckline and sleeves are an homage to the film's subject matter. She looks good, but I think the grey and turquoise are an odd color combo. All in all she always look nice if a little safe...but safe it's good.

I like the look a lot. And her eye makeup looks great! She's using hardly any dark eyeliner, and it opens her eyes up a lot and makes her look younger.

Really like this - its a beautiful pale grey and the turquoise and gold at the neck and sleeves are quite special. Love the peplum detail. Always difficult to get the right balance at something (a) that includes meeting up with children; and (b) starts at 18:00. I never expected full-on evening dress so not disappointed at all.

She looks lovely, as usual. However, I'm always perplexed by how she always, always, always, holds her hands in front of her. Her clutch is always held in her hands in front of her mid-section. I've seen so many other royal woman hold their clutches under their arms so their hands are free by their sides.

'Just curious ...

I ve noticed also but i presume she changes position once inside, as she has to greet people, so she should hold cluch with left hand.

I think she's not entirely sure of what to do with her hands on a public engagement. Even when she doesn't have a clutch she clasps her hands together. Given the way people over-analyse literally every little thing she does, I wouldn't blame her for being a tad self-conscious.

It reminds me of one of my friends who went on to become a barrister and as part of his course he was filmed speaking in public. He said when he watched it back he was doing all sorts of things with his hands and his tie and shuffling his feet and never realised it.

Same old, same old. I would have almost said that the dress is bland, but then it are the accessories that make her dresses look so boring IMO. Black-ish shoes and clutch with this lovely shade of the dress: no. Her curtain of hair that has quite a boring color per se all down as usual: utterly boring and common.

I really like the dress. It's chique, safe but the turqouise details around the neck and sleeves give it a playful touch.

But again, I would like to see that hair (albeit gorgeous) out of her face and change up her make-up. (iow: stop lining those lower eye-lids. It only does favor to those with big eyes)

[edit] Different shoes and clutch wouldn't have hurt either. This is why I appreciate Maxima's style, she knows how to do accessorize.

You like to play with fire, don't you?
I quite agree with you though; she could have done so much better!

It is not a dress? From the back it looks a two pieces!

Anything other than plain shoes and handbag would be clashing with the lovely turquoise and gold detailing. The detailing at the neck and the cuffs are the star of the show here. As we saw with CP Victoria lately and her bright green platforms, some dresses just need an understated shoe, and this is one of them.

But hey, at least it's not just another variant of beige like some royal ladies tend to go for.
