Great to see this beautiful dress again. I like the simple pumps and clutch with the outfit. Even though its a great look, I wish she dressed it up with a hairstyle or evening look earrings. The overall look was more of a daytime look than an evening look IMO.

She looks like all she had in that clutch was a tissue at most - it looks completely flat and empty

Glad to see this dress repeated - and I think it looks better this time round in this evening event than at the Jubilee when worn with the red hat. The colour suits Kate's colouring and its a nice shape and length on her. She kept the accessories simple - I adore those gold earrings. A very polished appearance this evening from Kate

I like this dress much more this time than at the Jubilee, the black acessories look much better with red than those nude pumps.

Great dress and much better paired with black than with nude. Hair at least in a bun would look so much better.

I love this dress. It's one of her best. Her hair is a little long but it looks styled and good.

Did anyone else notice the band-aid on her left thumb? I would have gone with Hello Kitty, or if borrowed from George's box - Superman?

And I think it's wise of her to wear her clothes multiple times.

Yet (I know it's contradictory) I always feel a tiny bit disappointed when I don't see something new!
Which is idiotic but there it is.

Yup. I agree. I like the black with the dress. I also think she should have put the hair up. It would have looked better. The bandaid is curious too, I wonder what happened.

I always have the same reaction, so don't worry.

That shade of red is lovely and suits Catherine. The black shoes are a good choice, I often find that black and red go well together.

That red dress is so beautiful. Very classic and elegant. One of my favorite looks from Catherine.

Very true.. There has been a bit of fuss over Dame Helen wagging her finger in Her Majesty's face, but on the video the movement is over in a split-second ! {and then deliberately blown up to cause a rumpus}.

I prefer this second outing for the red outfit with these accessories. Such a change to see Kate wearing a more prominent pair of earrings. I like seeing Kate recycling her clothes when she gives them a new twist.

The dress is very flattering but I agree, the hair is too long.

The black accessories did look a lot better than the previous outing with nude pumps. The black courts looked a lot more elegant and feminine. As for her having her hair up? Chance would be a fine thing!

And that is why her long hair is inappropriate for public engagements. She starts out looking lovely and her hair was styled more in waves than her usual sausage curls which is a very good thing. However, Catherine cannot defy the Law of Gravity and the sheer weight of hair that long pulls out the styling and causes it to become less bouncy and then it starts to flop down over her face.

That's when she invariably ends up pushing her hair up or back over her shoulders or trying to tuck it behind her ears. Unfortunately her ears are not big enough to hold back that volume and so she ends up starting the whole routine over again. Very distracting and yes, perhaps even tacky.

Exactly! Why can she not see this?

And, on reflection, I'm rather glad her ears are not big enough to hold back that volume of hair!
