Lovely to see Kate in Erdem again - this designer really works well on the Duchess. A beautiful dress for the dinner and suits the tour in Asia. The pattern is lovely.

It is an ok dress considering the conservative background of Singapore. If she decides to wear it again in the UK she could get rid of the sleves (like the model wore it on the catwalk).

I am really enjoying her evening dresses. I don't find them ageing at all but rather refreshingly bold and different.

I simply don't understand-how does that pattern age her? It's soft, it's not overpowering, it has classic colors.

I think it looks lovely.

Also, despite how it was billed, this clearly wasn't a gala event-William is wearing a business suit.

I agree; the dress is way too old for Kate (is it just me or does she sometimes veer between the too-young-for-her and the too-old-for-her extremes of the spectrum?) Usually, I admire her dress sense, BTW.

I don't care for the Erdem dress; it isn't horrible, but when the press does their HIT OR MISS polls, I'd put this in the MISS category.

I like the cut of Erdem dress, but not the print.

Did not like the Erdem dress. " Old granny" is a great description- washes her out.

I like the dress on her, I think it suits her. It is feminine and floaty, the pleats are good for her and the length is perfect for her legs.
If she had put her hair up a little, and maybe picked up the coral in the dress with some coral jewelry it would have been nicer.
It does have an asian flair, I think

Nothing to die for, but elegant and appropriate. I think she really knows how to put first the occasion's needs and secondly her own appearance. Bravo

My fav is the patterned purple dress, the kimono is growing on me, this newest one reminds me of a picture drawn by an Asian artist that I came across earlier this year, I think it was a painting or a water color.

Seems like if you're a woman of a certain age and a grandmother you may well be offended by some of the recent comments here. I am not sure what old granny curtains look like, but my grandmother had equisite taste in her soft furnishings and fabrics......if people mean that the fabric or design is old fashioned, I disagree because clearly the fabric and design is currently available in 2012!

You are fully right!

We have to decide in this thread if we want Catherine to get out dressed as a 15 years Hollywood 2nd class starlette, or as a 30 years Princess, future Queen of England, on official duty.

Well said. I have to admit that I quite liked the style of the dress . . . after all, I wore a LBD in almost the exact same style 20+ years ago!

I have to admit to severe reservations about the the floral design though and yes, I think HM would look wonderful wearing it.

. Are there only 2 choices as to what people find fashionable yet "royal", really? I've seen Catherine dress beautifully and said so. This is a time when I don't love what she's wearing. Catherine is not a much of a fashion martyr as she's been cast. Every royal lady has hits or misses fashionwise. It's not a crime to dislike an outfit or two.

The design of the dress is lovely. It's the print that is awful in my opinion

There's nothing new in the world of fashion. Styles and colours are just on a conveyer belt, coming back in and heading out again on a never-ending loop.

You are right, but I was not saying about opinions. You can find her outfits, nice or uggly, or non appropriate for each occasion, this is normal and this is the purpose of this forum. What personnally do not like, is that people criticize her either if she is "too oldish", or "too extreme, short, etc etc", like if she was already condamned...without judgement.

Better pictures will come but to me she looks like a fairy on top of a tree.
