Everything that is old becomes new again and although I'm a young guy and don't follow fashion that much, from what I've read, the colour and style of Catherine's dress are very much 'on trend' so I guess its to each their own.

Not a fan of the dress or the bangs on Kate.

I suppose we'll agree to disagree since this is a dress I could easily see Princess Anne, the Queen of Retro Fashion Recycling, pulling from her flashback closet and wearing to a current appearance.

Dear Tarlita, please recognize that you don't have to denigrate the Duchess of Cambridge, talking down to her from the hardly unique position of a computer, just because you don't like her clothes. Cheers.

How is calling a dress unflattering and suggesting she hire a stylist "denigrating" the DoC? This is a fashion thread, right?

I start having real doubts about my fashion sense because I actually liked the green dress; I thought Kate looked kind of cute in it.
And to make matters worse, I like the hair too.

No need to question your fashion sense. If you like Camilla's black Laura Ingalls Wilder outfit from from tonight's engagement , you have very unique tastes

It would appear to be the case.

I do think the Duchess of Cornwall looks very nice - and not just sartorial-wise but because of the makeup and jewellery; she's positively glowing.

The same was true about the Duchess of Cambridge - I thought she was just glowing. That's probably why I liked the dress which is not, as I had stated before, something I would normally like or endeavour to wear myself.

What is so magical about hiring a stylist?
You just get someone else's taste instead of your own!
What happens if that person's taste is even worse?

(And a stylist is just another ordinary person anyway; if circumstances were different, I could see where Kate herself might even be a stylist for someone else!)

A stylist is hired to enhance another person's personal style, not to totally change a style. If not a stylist, then a dresser at least. The woman can't even get a bow belt the right way up. Seems she only cares about her hair.

Luckily the only opinion that matters is the British public's, and judging from the reaction Catherine receives from the public, they love everything about her, including her style.

She (and a lot of others posting here) aren't just saying, 'I don't like the dress,' or even 'wow, her style isn't to my liking' or 'that dress is hideous,'

No, the comments are now just downright rude and sanctimonious: she needs to hire a stylist because clearly she doesn't know how to dress; there's some ridiculous confabulation to ignore the fact that her clothes are ugly.

It's not the personal opinions I argue with, it's the sanctimonious, 'we know better than you,' 'someone help this poor girl' tone.

Since this isn't the place to discuss this (sorry), I'd be happy to discuss this in PMs or in another thread.

I'm not too keen on the dress or the hairstyle, in fact the more I see pics from last night I find I'm disliking the look with a greater intensity. And I was so looking forward to an evening outfit - when is the next one?

For sure you can like the dress itself.
The dress on her is just a big no. Maybe on Alexa Chung and possé but it doesn't really seem like her style all that much.
I know she has to dress modest but she's shown quite a lot of times before that she can dress really well for her age and position.

And honestly, I don't see why a 30 year old woman would want to look cute.

According to Tom and Lorenzo...

...her "gays-in-waiting" are not doing a good job.

She looks terrific. Reading some of the past comments - wow, harsh. Can you imagine if she DID hire a stylist??? Even more complaining. People complain when she looks good, when she looks bad, when she puts a belt on wrong??? Glad I'm not her. There have been plenty she has worn that I intensely disliked, but I never linked it to her intelligence.

Wow, she looks incredible! Her taste in evening wear is often hit-or-miss (or, hit-or-snooze) to me, but I love the dress and I think she looks fantastic.
