I think the dress is alright. Just some fit issues.

The dress is okay for the occasion. I'm only surprised at the "vows" for this dress, which it is a boring, black lace dress. That's all. At least in twitter I read comments similar to mine.

Why is she supposed to buy things that are remarkable she buys what she likes and wants to wear.

I like the dress, suitable for the event. I love the hemline. The dress looks better on her since everything is porportioned correctly.

Kinda like the side bang she's got going too.

Busty isn't a descriptive adjective I'd ever apply to Kate!

She looks fine; the dress is conservative and well-suited to the occasion, and it's the sort of thing she'll probably wear again.

I agree that the LBD is nothing special, it looks similar to the velvet D&G worn at the Chinese State Visit:

Kate already owns lots of short black dresses and short black lace dresses, but I guess she just needed another one. It's fine for the occasion, the hair is a mess as usual.

Can someone show me what dress she should have repeated? This is an super honest question. Because I know it feels like she has alot of them... but I can't see which one she should have used. She has the gowns, that would have been inappropriate. Then she has the cutout ones with fuller skirt which are too edgy. The only one I can see is the Beulah from NY. But it's rather short and "cocktail-y" in my mind and not really fitting. Am I missing one?

NY dress would have been perfect.

then there are these ones that are probably considered not suitable or too ugly to wear

I agree that the dress worn in NYC has a hemline that is too short for the occasion. The others with the cutouts in the material are IMO inappropriate for this event.

Exactly. I see how people get the feeling that she has too many black lace dresses. I get that. But in this case I don't think any of them would have worked too well at this event. + She was 4 months pregnant in the Beulah dress.

I have no problem with the dress that she chose for The Festival of Remembrance. It's not overwhelming, and suits the occasion. Catherine looks great in it.

As others have mentioned...I don't think any of her other lace black dresses would have worked... She wore while pregnant or not dressy enough. The only dress which may have worked was the black Jenny Packham Kate wore in NZ with the fern diamanté on her shoulder. ... A tip of the hat to Charles in NZ. But I do think she looked lovely last night...and the lace pattern did have a bit of a 'poppy' flavor to it.

Oh, I forgot about that one! That might have worked... Maybe not with such a big fern though...

I so do wish Catherine would not wear foreign labels like D&G.

In fact since announcing her pregnancy Victoria majority of what Victoria has worn has been Seraphine and Asos both British labels

Kate is not a patron of British Fashion, she doesn't need to only wear British designers imo

Dolce&Gabbana Siciliana lace dresses are said to be the best in their class. There is nothing wrong with an occasional dress/suit/coat from a foreign label.

I would have to agree. Catherine's D & G black lace dress was
both the most attractive black lace dress I've seen her wear and the most appropriate for the occasion. Of all the varied black lace dresses she owns, not one of them would have been engagement appropriate.
