Yes, it looks like the image has been stretched. It's a really bad photo and we have seen so much better in recent days.

Of course. This pic is abnormal.

I liked her gown. It was a nice different touch and her hair was very nice.

I think the dress could be shortened and worn for daytime, if Kate wants to recycle it.

The dress is sold in that pattern in a short version.

I love the colour of the dress Catherine wore to the Spectre premiere, though I do agree with the poster who said that the front of the dress reminds them of a dressing gown. It's a shame because the dress in general looks lovely on Catherine and the colour suits her. I like her hair in a bun, she looks elegant in it.

I would've liked Catherine's Erdem dress if it weren't for the hem. It just makes the dress awkward and slightly matronly IMO. The print is really nice on her though.

I've heard on other blogs that the prairie hem made the live movement of the dress a great thing. I'm assuming they are not lying.
And the blue dress was great in action (I bothered to watch that video) and the swirl of the chiffon and shiny layers was beautiful. So maybe Kate is on a live-action dressing kick for evenings.

I don't love but I don't hate the Erdem dress. I'm completely intrigued by the interesting piecing of the bodice. The flounce... Eh. Yes, it does look better in motion but I read a comment, perhaps on Twitter, that day, from someone who said they would have liked the flounce better if it had had a split in it, and I tend to agree. I think it would have given it a more modern edge that's lacking with it being just a straight 24" of fabric gathered and tacked on to lengthen a knee length dress.

I actually didn't mind her hair with this dress. The only shame was that we didn't get a really great look at those heirloom earrings she was wearing. Getting a look at the back of the dress, I can understand why she wore her hair down - it was a simple, basic v-cut and there was nothing special about it at all.

The blue dress from the Bond premiere has definitely grown on me the more I look at it. I agree with the comments about the front but the rest of the dress, especially that flash of skin at the back and the little details of the sparkly buttons and the jeweled waist really lift the look.

I loved her hair with this dress - not just because it showed off the gorgeous earrings - but because it very effectively drew attention to the dress' back which was the highlight of the dress.

The skirt of both the red gown for the Chinese State Banquet and the blue from the premier were both pure romance. Their top's however, were pure dross.

Attending the Festival of Remembrance, the Duchess of Cambridge looked elegant in a black lace dress by Dolce & Gabbana.

The black dress is exquisite. Very elegant and regal. It's one of her best dresses.

Yes, a perfectly judged outfit. I like her hair worn back over the shoulder ( you can see her wonderful earrings) wonder why she doesn't do this more often. It might be the make up, but she looks very good and fresh faced.

I like this lace black dress very elegant. But i disagree about hair and makeup. Hair is a big mess. And the makeup makes her older.

While looking to the BBC for the Remembrance Festival most of the tweets on "the second screen" (Twitter) went about Gregory Porter (one of the singers) with his inseparable hat. A lot of the other tweets went about "the globs of make-up plastered on Kate" and other rants against the Duchess of Cambridge. So Twitterland was not so impressed with Kate's appearance, to put it mildly.

A lot of the tweets I read were very complementary. I love this dress on her

I like the dress but it's nothing special, it's like another black lace dress. The disappointment was her hair, it was really styled badly and the blow-dry wasn't done nicely IMO. Moreover, I find such dresses should have hair pulled back half or all.

Totally overwhelming look. The dress is another lace, boring and banal black dress, which was even unflattering on her. It made her look busty in the upper part. Kate has a lot of similar and much nicer black cocktail dresses, and yet she chose another new piece that does nothing for her. Pity.

I know people keep saying she has alot of similar pieces. And in a way she does... But I can't see one that would work here. They are either gowns or more full-skirt and frilly (and sometimes even edgy) more fit for galas and cocktail partys. Unless one seeps from my memory.

If she really needed to buy a new piece she could have at least chosen something better... I fail to see how this dress is remarkable oer even pretty...
