Oh GOD, just when it was going soo well.. this dress is simply HIDEOUS, the fabric looks like 70s Hotel curtains, and the 'valance' only reinforces the image....

The only + is the Duchess' access to the Queen Mothers Sapphire fringe earrings.

Not sure how I feel about the dress. I don't hate it but I don't love it. That being said? Catherine is getting bolder and more experimental in her look and that I love, even when it's not to my taste.

And those earrings are lovely and it is so good to see her becoming comfortable borrowing from the family collection.

i think we are seeing a more fashion confident Kate - experimenting and trying new things and getting comfortable in the royal jewel box. those earrings may have been a wedding gift from Charles or HM or perhaps just recently loaned. But I like Confident Kate - and look forward to the show!

I love everything about the dress, except for the ruffled hem. The colors are pretty and the silhouette is lovely, but the bottom of the dress just doesn't work for me.

The earrings are really stunning.

I agree that it's great to see Kate experimenting with different looks. Not everything is going to work, but I'm glad she's getting comfortable enough to try new styles.

I really like the dress and despite my surprise it looks good on Kate! I think I am a bit perplexed as this dress doesn't come across as a piece Kate would wear but I am glad she is experimenting and risking a bit! Isn't it cold in London for such a summery dress though?

I love the fabric but don't like the wider part at the bottom.

I wish the duchess and all of her dressmakers would learn where her natural waist is. Almost every dress she wears has the waistline about an inch or two too high. She is naturally long-waisted and it is very noticeable in a dress like this.

I agree. Even when I don't like the garments I like her wearing them!

I've been saying this for several years now...too many of her dresses are not tailored to fit her waist so they look off and the porportions are wrong.

But she is only walking from the car to the door outside. Even with a stop for some photos, it not that long. At almost 10 pm, it 59 deg F in London so it's not super cold.

It has been very mild today - it was about 16C at about 7 o' clock.

I usually adore Erdem but the bottom is not my thing. And that blowout.. This is bordering on Farrah Fawcett

What I dislike most is the tiered style of the skirt and the cocker spaniel hair. Yesterday's hairstyle was so good. Not sure what to think of the print. I like Erdem prints but this one is too much Laura Ashley curtains.

I don't like this dress. I find the print too much and I dislike the bottom of it.

Oh dear Kate oh dear. Last night the top half was bad, tonight the whole dress but especially the bottom half is bad. The additional ruffle looks like it has been attached to make it an evening gown and the bold print looks like she decided to make a dress out of the spare material from the curtains at Kensington Palace. Her hair isn't great tonight as well - hides the lovely earrings. Struggling to like anything about this look for Kate - fashion wise, jewellery wise it is a good show.

Kate, you have a heap of lovely gowns in your wardrobe bring them out of hiding.

Really? Seeing Kate in a floral print dress doesn't surprise me. I don't remember seeing her in a floral evening gown, but I can't say I'm stunned. The bottom is a little different, but not too much so imo.

Kate's worn things that are outside her norm, but she's never really worn anything that's stunned me- that seemed really out of character. There was some article about her becoming more risqué since becoming a mom. I can't say I've noticed that. She's pretty conservative, but it's not a new thing imo for her to deviate a little from that here and there- be it a slit in the skirt or a lower neckline.
