I don't find the dress to busy. It's a big switch from the dull evening dresses Catherine usually wear when back home. I think the dress highlights Catherine's beautiful figure as well.

I like the casual evening look really different for her IMO

Have to say I like it too. Very colorful in a good way.

I'd rather see Catherine go bold and colorful than anything else. Kinda of remind me of Maxima, Letizia or Mary. I'm telling you, if she hung out with those women, Catherine would catch on to what they're doing and more changes would be made.

WOW...this is a stunning dress....LOVE the red pop in the wrap/shawl. Perfect foil for William and his usual blue suit. Striking couple.

Very elegant and chic.

this is not a print - it is embroidery. The neckline is beaded. This is an extraordinary dress and I love it. I could never wear it but it suits Catherine, is appropriate and is a wonderful piece of workmanship.

I would love to see more of this "pushing boundaries". She has made excellent choices onthis tour.

EDIT http://hrhduchesskate.blogspot.co.uk/

if you scroll down you will see the beading and embroidery.

I agree, I would like to see Catherine keep it with this kind of wardrobe. I think she looks well when her outfits pop and she's got the elegant figure to carry it off.

The textile is just stunning...it really is a piece of artwork. So cool it's an American designer! See we aren't total barbarians over here! <G>

Perfect evening dress, and the scarf makes it.Gorgeous embroidery and still going with her "see through sleeves" theme on this trip.

I like this dress because it is so unlike Kate! I wish she were bolder and daring more often, as colorful outfits really do wonders on her!

Yes, it is something different and quite bold for Kate. It's certainly vivid and I'm not sure that the browns suit her. Nevertheless, it's unusual and it's good that Kate is trying some different combinations. Pity William didn't pack another suit, though!

Blasphemy currying, how dare you suggest that William could possibly wear another suit. I will forget I read that

The answer is never, never! He and Harry share that blue suit.

I've just taken a look at Kate's dress though, and it has got a high side split. The skirt she wore yesterday maybe wasn't tied properly and had the same. Isn't that a bit of a no-no in a conservative country?

Love, love, love! The color, the style is wonderful for this occasion and fits her like a glove. The shawl is perfect as well.

This is a very bold look for Kate--I like it! I've liked everything she has worn on this trip. I loved the peasant-style dresses in the 1960's-70's, and also like the new boho style. It's so comfortable and easy-to-wear in warm weather. The prints Kate has chosen are gorgeous to me.

I love busy prints--as a quilter, my favorite quilts are scrappy.

I love this dress - it must look exquisite up close. I so hope she doesn't mothball the wardrobe from this tour.

I usually like flame-coloured dresses and gowns. I have to say though that I'm not a great fan of this one.
