I think the dress is great actually, but I don't like the styling. Normally, I'm not on Team Updo, and I think her hair usually looks great down, but with this dress- it overwhelmed the dress. She needed sleek hair and some amazing earrings to really make the look sophisticated.

Catherine's, Duchess of Cambridge, dress per se is fine.
On the other hand, the hairstyle is overwhelming. Sleek ironed hair would have been much better. Glittery shoes are cheap.

I agree abut the hair. I usually don't care whether she wears it up or down, but I think an updo would have really complimented this outfit. That aside, I think she looks wonderful. I really love the simplicity of the dress and I think the shoes are cute. All in all, this is one of my favorite outfits.

Haha I agree about the shoes! The dress on the other hand is ok, but the way she wore it makes it boring. It needs something extra.

One of her best ever looks.
I agree!
It's funny, just recently I read some criticism that she wears boring shoes, never open-toe.
But now that she has, some people dislike that.

I think the dress is fine, anything else would be too much with the shiny shoes and the dangling earrings.

Same shoes she wore at Bafta LA event. Don't remember any criticism then.

She also wore the shoes to a reception in aid of the National Memorial Arboretum Appeal at St James's Palace on November 10, 2011 in London, England (with silver Jenny Packham dress). I disliked the shoes then, and I dislike them now. They did look better with silver dress though, whereas they just clash horribly with this cream one.

Just love the dress. Don't think it goes too well with her haircolor, just my impression.
A necklace and some kind of updo would have really improved the look of the dress.
The shoes don't go at all.

The dress itself is absolutely gorgeous but styled like this there is something just not quite right. Maybe her hair should have been styled differently and the shoes are really distracting. The styling lacks - as always in my opinion - a certain "je ne sais quoi" and her red toes are just ghastly.

It's not been confirmed, but so far the consensus is that the dress is by Roland Mouret. Carla Brunii wore the dress in a different shade back in 2010.

The cream dress Kate was seen wearing to the... | For the Love of Catherine (scroll down to see Carla)

I think a necklace would have been too much. This type of dress needs minimal accessories.

The dress in that green shade is absolutely fantastic. And it just goes to show a proper hairstyle can work wonders.

I agree. A different hairdo would have really made this dress pop.

The hair is really my only criticism though. I think this is one of her best outfits.

ok I've got over the green-eye re being able to wear a dress like this, although I will say she doesn't look so thin in it (so what chance have I got )

Cream is not easy to accessorise so I'd go for bronze or gold - not silver because its lost again all that cream. Perhaps a hip hugging belt to liven it up?

Not a great look overall. b+ and let's hope for some fireworks on Friday

Love the shoes & dress. Separately, I think it would have all looked great. A nice updo would have gone much better with the dress.

I would actually go for green or pink. But it should either be earrings or a necklace, not both.

I think Roland Mouret's dress looks fabulous on Kate! It is quite a surprise to see Carla Bruni wear the same dress, in green, at a different function on the same night.

(silly me, yes Carla Bruni wore this dress in 2010)

I absolutely love the dress - the design is simple and elegant. With the high neckline I think having her hair up would be nice.

I agree, an updo would have been ideal to show off the lovely neckline. This dress is gorgeous!
