How funny that, in the daytime when she wore a suit with all kinds of interest around the neckline (fabric flowers, enamel poppy brooch) she had her hair hanging down, obscuring all that detail, and now tonight she has her hair back when there's no detail at all. How about a statement necklace, this dress is screaming for something like that to liven it up. Especially as this was an evening event. (think Anna Wintour - she wears gorgeous statement necklaces all the time, or Michelle Obama when she breaks out the Tom Binns)

The eye-makeup - if she could just relent. Its too much - as is her hair - and yet both these items - particularly the hair (in my experience) is governed by the wishes of the feller. Maybe she likes it long but its getting very long - a lot of hair to manage. My guess is the hubby is having a say in the matter - as is the way, as we know. When babies come along she may reconsider. For now it is what it is.
u and others have talk about her hair and eyemakeup. i love how she wears her eye makeup shes not wearing false eyelashes or had plastic surgery but she is a reg looking women with as some have the opinion of wearing to much eyemakeup
and her hair is fine the way it is imo . after she has children i hope she wouldnt change her hair lenght why? princess mary hasnt just because some have had their hair shorten doesent mean she will...dispite what others may think she does sit the trend so the trend for rt now is long hair..if u cant grow it buy it , its still is yours


its all imo

1; Catherine's eye make up, is not the regular make up I see on a day to day basis. Whilst there is no heavy foundation, mix matched neck and face tones or bright lipstick her eyes half the time look like bruises.

2; I'm confused by this statement, Princess Mary has cut her hair, dyed her hair, up-doed it, down-doed it numerous times. Catherine keeps her hair down, with the occasional half do.

Oh no, there are much more circular ones. Sophia & CP, the triangle, Catherine's make up might be getting up their but it does change occasionally.

Kates eyemake up is definitely the norm in Hollywood, actually her eyemake up is less severe than those worn by famous women who are not royal who lean towards the smokey eye look. On campuses around America girls are going for the severe eye liner look and compared to them Kate looks modest. I really wish I was give. $5 for everytime someone on this board complained about Kate's makeup like she is the only royal lady who wears hers like that.
I also hope Kate never cuts her hair especially is she likes it the way it is. She could end up looking like Charlene.

I agree - I'm guessing that she bought the dress and thought that the slightly african inspired beading details would be a nice nod to the movie. She looks nicely dressed to show respect. That dress that Guy Ritchie's girlfriend wore was NOT - so much side cleavage!

I think that the belt was the statement. it really jazzed up the dress a lot. I also think her earrings added some flair so that it wasn't so staid. I think she did good! This is one of my favourite outfits so far.

I thought the gold earring were a "statement piece" in a way....I think a necklace, belt and the earring would have been way to much.

William and Kate attended a black tie dinner hosted by the Thirty Club.
She wore a cream long evening dress with centre high slit, combining it with silver high heel Jimmy Choo's and silver clutch.
- The dress (front view)
- The dress (back view)
- Close up and the bag
- The high slit
- The shoes

I can't say I like this dress or the overall look. It might have looked fantastic with the help of a necklace or even a brooch, but as it is, it's just a bland, average look.
But what I hate most are the shoes: open toe silver shoes with a cream long-sleeved dress like that? Not a very good idea. The shoes may be Jimmy Choo but they look cheap and tacky.

Usually I don't mind she's a bit of a "neutral" dresser for lack of a better term but totally agree, this is just bland. I don't mind the dress so much if it was maybe a brighter color, or had statement jewelry.....And I do greatly hate the shoes with it....she missed on this one, IMO, but oh well can't all be winners

Doing a Miss Angelina,
Be careful sitting down in that dress Kate! Duchess wows in a floor-length cream gown... with a thigh-high split | Mail Online

I don't care for this look at all. I think if she livened the dress up with some jewels, it would have been nice, but this is striking me as just going into one's closet, and grabbing the first thing that is within reach.

The dress is eh, and the shoes I don't like but overall she looks elegant.

Good lord but that's a stunning dress. It's amazing how something so simple can be transformed by a long, lean frame. On a shorter woman this would be awful, but on Kate it is glorious. The contrast with her dark hair is really eye-catching. Adore the Jimmy Choos as well.

One of her best ever looks.

Boring is right. A pretty enough dress, in fact, it looks like an interesting cut. A tiara or some interesting jewels in her hair or around her neck/face would have jazzed this up nicely!!!! :)

Hope she didn't get inspiration from Anja Rubik
http://www.zimbio.com/photos/Anja+Ru...ns/P1rHxR__ZMr
Kidding ofcourse.

The dress has some serious potention but it needs a pop. I would style it with either a popping necklace or earrings. And again, those locks should be out of her face. She would look much fresher.

Anyway, good effort, she looks really nice. Just not entirely my cup of tea.
