It looked OK for Laura's wedding although I can't actually focus on the coat: the horrid "hat" is too distracting.
Tonight though the coat sits perfectly on Kate's figure. I actually like it a lot better when not worn with a hat, especially the kind Kate favours.
Such a lovely coatdress, that color suits kate well.

Quite a disappointment that the dinner doesn't even have a dress code of black tie / long dresses.
Kudos to Catherine for trying to dress somewhat younger and in a vibrant color mix, but all I see in that VERY bold print and its not very fortunate placement on the dress is either a colored Rorschach test or an ugly lava lamp exploding.

Certainly a vibrant print on the dress. Nice nod to the hosts in Singapore and i always love anything with a purple colour in. Better appearance this evening than the outfit from the arrival

What a disappointment! I thought we would see a bit of glitter for this occasion.

Her dress is Prabal Gurung.
So much better than her outfit during the day. The print is really something else. Wish she had better taste in shoes though.

I liked the dress at first sight, but the more I look at it the more the print makes me crazy
I see nothing wrong about her shoes though.

I'm a fan of this dress. It's different and striking without being OTT. Would like a close up of the bracelet.

Here is a closer look from the War Horse premier. http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2012/...39_306x218.jpg

And Anna at My small obsessions on FB has a number of closeups in her Kate UFO photos. Here is one: http://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphoto...93970738_n.jpg

Its good to see her in such color and print, something you don't expect from Kate but it is not a pretty dress. I would've liked if she had her hair pulled back so the print on the shoulders/top part shows nicely in the front. The way the print is on the back is quite nicer than the front but the dress overall is different which is nice.

Isn't that the bracelet Charles gave her? That is one beautiful piece of jewelry and I can see Kate wearing it quite often in her lifetime. Charles does have exquisite tastes.

I don't loke this on her but I like it on the back view the front is IMO not glamorous at ll and I hate it with the black shoes.

Yes it is and yes he does. While looking for close ups I found this site - which shows how much this bracelet looks like several that the Duchess of Cornwall often wears. The resemblance is fascinating. Catherine's Bracelets

That dress is gorgeous. If she were attending Fashion Week, I would say wear a bright shoe and an updo, but for a state visit demur black shoes and understated yet elegant hair is perfect.

So, we didn't even get through the first day of the tour without the usual 'she should be wearing her hair up' complaints. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised.

This dress is a true work of art. I adore the colour, the pattern is interesting and bold and it fits Kate beautifully. This is a bit of a departure for Kate and it really works for her IMO.
