Catherine looks nice in blue. This is a very understated look, and she pulls it off well.

Uh...not that impressed. Love blue but not used in that way. I also don't like her hair this time.

I like her outfit tonight. And I always love her hair. Tonight it looks more natural? Less curls on the bottom. I am hopeless when it comes to this stuff.

A slightly better view of the dress:

I think Kate looks lovely. The dress is nice as is the hairstyle.

I love her clutch. Does anyone know for sure that the message shown inside the bag is of Kate's bag? If so, I think it's very sweet that William buys her gifts like that.

(I saw the image of the inside of the bag at What Kate Wore)

Kate's dress is a recycled Oasis dress
It’s a Whistles Repeat for Kate at Closing Ceremony (Spoiler Alert) » What Kate Wore

I agree that the print isnt anything special, somehow boring but the color is great and I like the added black belt.

The dress is by Whistles, actually, not Oasis. I liked this first time round and I like it again.

Kate's had a good Olympics sartorially speaking. She did her best to not be the focus of attention, which didn't really work, but that's the media's fault, not Kate's.

Oh my mistake
I like the dress without the jacket more. With the jacket, it gives a more formal /different look.

I like the dress/belt combo too but the long zipper in the back is unnecessary & ugly.

Tell me about it, many designers go for that zipper in the back, not sure what they think is nice about it

Is that your dancing dress, Kate? Duchess of Cambridge recycles Whistles dress she wore for Diamond Jubilee concert at Closing Ceremony bash

It's just the way designers take last year's dress, put an ugly zip up the back and run it in their current collection and reap the rewards. Kate may have worn it at night, but it isn't eveningwear.

That´s a pretty dress, but nothing special, IMO.
She should try differents hairdos for special occasions, that never-changing hairstyle is becoming quite boring.

How is it a never-changing hairstyle when she has change it (updos, etc)? A never-changing hairstyle is what Beatrix, Elizabeth and Anne have.
