I love this dress, it's very becoming on Catherine. The ONLY thing I might have done differently is to ditch the wedges. I usually don't mind them but on this occasion I think a flat shoe would have looked better OR the dress should have been longer. Just MO, of course.

Love this dress, it's really gorgeous. Agree the wedges should go!

The wedges are way too casual to be wearing with this dress. A pair of flat gold sandals would have matched well IMO. I don't mind those wedges but they are daytime shoes and look silly here.

They were at a campfire at a national park. It's not a reception at the Ritz. Her shoes are fine. After the Daily Mail's foot analysis of yesterday, why should she want to wear sandals.

Dirt floor. Makes sense to me.

I love the colors of this dress but the pattern is too busy. I like the style and relaxed vibe...appropriate for the location.

Kate likes wedges, obviously. I've liked most of the outfits so far but not so keen on this one. I can't put my finger on why, the busy pattern perhaps, colours not so great, don't know.

I'm not a fan of the latest dress. The top and the bottom look too overwhelming and the different patterns give it a very home-made look. I think one pattern/print on the top and bottom of the dress would have worked better.

South Asians in general wear very colourful and richly patterned clothing often embellished with laces, embroidery, and other details. I guess to western sensibilities Kate's dress might seem busy but she looks very much at home in it. To me she seems to have made an extra effort to bring lots of colour and print into her wardrobe for this visit and I applaud her for being so adventurous and stepping out of her usual, sometimes unimaginative, style.

This one just looks a little baggy to me. And I agree, the wedges look out of place. Those nice beige flats worn with the red dress would have been better. They look relaxed. Maybe it is cooler there.

I love this dress, the print, colors and the style. This was a very casual event and this dress was very appropriate IMO. The wedges were a miss though.

I 'll reitarate and say that Kate looks more lovely in casual/sporty looks than formal gown. She looked greay in that tunic/maxi dress. I even think the wedges cut a fine fugure too.

I think she's wearing all the wedges due to the terrain in at least some situations. Not a fan of them generally otherwise. But really like the short pink dress. Looks very nice on her.

I agree with you on the more casual wear - these Indian-themed outfits do seem to suit her. I don't mind the wedges here either.

I just think that traditional outifts with colorful and intricate prints represents Kate very well. Far more that the frumpy night outifits. At least, in my opinion.

That blue evening dress she wore a few nights ago was anything but frumpy. It was very classy and elegant.

A bit late here.

The blue dress is divine, but I don't like it with that shawl, it makes her posture look worse. The dress is amazing on its own, it doesn't need "extras". Updoo was pretty. I might be one of the very few that likes the earrings (of course I'll love it more if it were diamonds). The open heels don't match the dress, they seem out of place.

The nude dress with black pattern is pretty but nothing outstanding, though I would love to have one for myself, I like it's simplicity. The hair was beautiful with an half up doo (I always said and will always say that this kind of hairstyle makes her younger, it suits her so much). Nice earrings and matching shoes

The green "hippie" dress is cute. I like the busy print! And...I like the wedges as well! We have shoes that matches with the outfit. But the hair is a bit wild, maybe it's the humidy with high temperatures, a ponytail would've been better.
