Kate's wearing Jenny Packham for the Spectre premiere.

Not a good looking dress. The ill fit/design makes her look odd.

I love the back of the dress, but unsure about the dress from the front.

You might try refreshing, but here's some other photos if that doesn't work.

I love the hairstyle, one of the best I've ever seen on Kate but the dress ... from the front it looks like an ill-fitting bathrobe.

I don't know if I like the dress or not... I have a soft spot for that style, but the fabric makes the pleats look wrinkled instead of the flowy effect...

The upper part is "like an ill-fitting bathrobe", indeed. Catherine looks fine from the back. The hairstyle and earrings are lovely.

On a different note, Ms Harris is the best dressed lady at the screening. A simple cut and rich colour show off Ms Harris' amazing figure.

I think that it would have looked better in a richer colour. Burgundy or navy or dark green.

Yep. I'm going back and forth on it too. In some photos I like it, but in other photos the fit is odd.

I do adore the back of the dress, as well as the color. I'm also loving her hairstyle and the earrings.

I think the focus on the back was intentional. Since they don't stop and pose for the pictures, her back is what's shown the most. The same when they talk to the actors! So I understand the reasoning! I also think this is a dress that is best seen in movement. On the livestream it looked better :)

Same here. Like the color, updo (I agree that's maybe her best updo) and the gorgeous belt... but the front and especially the upper part really bugs me...

It's a lovely dress and colour, but the fit seems a little "generous" on the top part. The front reminds me of the Queen Mother's day dresses - the V-neck, cross over style.

I'd like to see the dress in a deeper colour too.

I love Catherine's hairstyle when it is put up like this.

It 's like there is too much fabric in the front and it doesn't drape correctly.

I think there's too much material because the dress doesn't fit her properly. Lovely colour though! It's bitter biting up here so I don't know how warm she is!

I love this Iook- I think it's glamorous and fun and different than her usual style, with the statement earrings and sparkle. And her up do is lovely.
