I think Catherine looks great. The length, color, style and texture of the dress suit her quite nicely. The hairstyle works well with the whole ensemble. It's a simple and elegant choice for an evening event that is not a formal affair.

I love the dress! It's such a lovely color, length and it has a nice flare to it. However, I dont think the belt is suitable for an evening event/dress. I like the black pumps and clutch with the outfit. The hair style is ok but the one curl in the front looks odd.

I like the look of the Duchess. Nice dress the color the hair. Maybe yes the belt does not fit so but overall nice look.

Lovely as the dress was, did she really need another new dress for the engagement? Could there not have been another dress in her wardrobe tat could have been used again

I'm sure she didn't but I've been known to buy myself a dress even I don't "need" one. Sometimes, you just fancy a new dress...

I agree. Also, I think she might be trying out the brand a bit for the India tour.

Yes we agree. Marty91 states in post 198 that they wished Catherine had worn that blue Reiss dress ( there was link to image). My reply was that the Reiss dress was borrowed.

Yep. I really like that dress and I hope that mum lends it to Kate again sooner or later

Royal photographer Mark Stewart verified the Duchess was in a gown by Alexander McQueen. It is another piece using lace, it also features eyelash lace, similar to the McQueen dress worn for the Jubilee church service in 2012. We compare lace at the necklines below.

I've would like to see more of that dress! It looks like it has puffy sleeves and the color seems to be icy blue...

Her 'go to' dress for the formality of the Diplomatic Corps Reception. would dearly loved to see if this is a straight evening gown or whether the skirt flows out.

Watching the footage of the Diplomatic Corps reception and seeing Kate in action in full length in the McQueen ice blue gown its is not how i imagined it -
1 - the lace doesn't continue into the skirt
2 - its a fuller skirt than previous ones she has worn
3 - the skirt is not a "floaty" and is more stiff - somewhat like the bottom of her wedding gowns which again were McQueen
