According to this site Duchess Kate: Duchess Kate Joins The Queen at Glittering Team GB Reception Beatrice and Eugenie were at this engagement as well.

If true, it would be interesting to see what they wore. In my view, while Kate's outfit was a miss this evening, it's the first of her outfits to do so.

On the other hand, I've never seen Beatrice and Eugenie wear anything that has ever impressed me.

This is what I take from last night. I also think the earrings/bracelet are an encouraging sign! Yes it's a little too fussy for my taste, but I don't think it is in any way the disaster described in some posts.

This dress is awfull, it is a dress for a woman who is 60 years old and not a young woman who is 30. She must change all her wardrobe, too old.

I like the white version of the dress on the model. It is very pretty, although it does remind me of a nightie. The souped-up version that Kate has is, well, overdecorated.

The dress is nagl. It looks dated, yet I can't find a suitable time period for it. The white version is more tolerable, but barely. She should wear more dresses like the Prabal Gurung she wore on her tour, not this frilly crap.

It is the mid 1960s in style. And not the breakout fun fab part of that period either.

This is a miss. This dress would've been great on a resort.
Kate does not pull off bell sleeves and the dress had not cut which was very unflattering.

I think that the dress needs some help. For me what wasn't quite right were the black straps that were showing through the top. What would have been easier and much better looking would have been to extend the solid black all the way up the sheer part on the front of the dress. That way Catherine could have worn a strapless bra with the dress and it wouldn't have looked so messy. Other than that, I think that the dress is unique (in a good way for me). And the shoes and jewels are nice. The hair on the other hand, I would have liked it pulled away from her face with this dress.

She should have worn the black dress the original and not changed it. This was just not pretty.

Yes!!!!

I just hate when bra straps are showing; why didn't she wear a strapless one?
Or since it's bespoke, why didn't Temperley put a built-in bra inside?

Other than that, I didn't mind the dress, although she has looked better.

I dont think they are bra straps - I think they are the sapghetti straps of the slip part of the dress -continuing up from the scoop neck

I think they're spaghetti straps too.

Sort of looks like something you'd wear over a bikini or swimsuit on a holiday. And black really? For a celebration event.

Yes, but most of the women were in black as well!
