But she doesn't wear it this way for every single event. We've seen her hair in all sorts of different styles. She obviously prefers to have it this way, but she has had her hair up and half up lots of times.

I also don't know when touching your hair became such a faux pas.

I very much like this Matthew Williamson outfit and the way it has been cut. I'd quite like to see her wear it for a day-time engagement.
I have noticed that this is not the first time Catherine has worn a peplum style - it certainly suits her figure very well and gives abit of shape to her hips.

^And her hair is up. That should satisfy those that hate to see her hanging down all of the time.

Yeah, the peplum style really does look good on her. It gives her a bit more curves.

EIIR, I totally agree with your last post about Charlene.

could this be the grey version of the oatmeal amanda wakeley dress she wore to the Royal Marsden in September... IIRC it was reported that she had bought it in grey and black at the same time.

Good eye! I'd say it's very possible. In fact, I'm almost certain it's the same one.
- The Amanda Wakeley dress (including a picture of the dress as worn by Kate)
- The dress in different colours, including grey (which looks very similar to the one Kate is wearing today)

It does appear to be the same version of the one she wore at the Royal Mardsen.

Although I wish she would have worn a brighter color, I still really like this look. The white Amanda Wakeley dress has always been one of my favorites, so this dress is a winner for me. I also think her hair, earrings and makeup look really good. Out of the 3 engagements, this is definitely my favorite look.

I always thought she was so smart to buy this dress in all 3 colours as it is just a great fitting, flattering dress, that could be a great staple in her wardrobe. I do like that she jazzed up her hair and wore larger earrings than we have seen in a long time from her. I too wish there had been some color - if for no other reason, she is in a sea of grey suits.
but i quibble as I think she looks just lovely

How boring, at least we saw blue this afternoon. I wouldn't class her hair as up, half is in a bun whilst the other half drapes like usual. Although it looks better than usual.

She looks very sophisticated tonight. I like the hair, and it's so obvious now that she kept it down for her 2 engagements earlier in the day so she'd only have to change it once, for this evening's engagement.

I prefer this dress in the oatmeal colour from the Royal Marsden, I thought she looked truly stunning in it, but this is lovely too.

I agree with you on all accounts: nice but overly safe and somewhat boring outfit, and definite improvement in hair department.

So do I. The oatmeal coloured dress was beautiful but the grey version looks just boring.

Undecided if I finally like it or not.
However - I start to get the feeling that the shape of her dresses are always the same. Although I like the classical elegant look - I feel it might be nice from time to time to deviate?

Well, last night she wore a peplum dress, and this is certainly not peplum, so they can't be that similar.

Her hair is not her face. I feel like throwing a party. In my opinion, she looks much nicer now. Though I prefer her Matthew Williamson dress.

It's up and off her face, which has been one of the constant complaints in regards to her hair.

Agree. I think this dress is really flattering for her. I'm interested to see how she accessories the black version of this dress.

I think Catherine looks nice. It's her usual understated look, and it suits her fine. The dress is elegant and appropriate for the event as well. Her hair and earrings are lovely.
