In total the dress is wonderful, great colour an I like the cutouts, making something special of the dress.....
The hair - ok, she did it again, keeping it open :-/.
Slight minus points for the dress looking a bit too big for her fragile body, i.e. the breast area.

Fragile body? She is very thin but she doesn't look fragile when you see the muscling in her arms/legs.

I think Kate looked perfect yesterday evening! Seriously, this blue gown is the best evening gown I've seen on her! It perfectly fitted her body, it gave her curves and was both elegant and particular!
Kate is a woman in her thirties now, and finally she has sported a gown for a woman, and no longer for a girl!.

I don't see this at all. All of the darting is hitting at the right spots, there's no sagging or pulling, and the neckline and sleeves are perfectly fit.

This dress is amazing in construction. Structured but not fussy, and emphasizes all the right places.

Catherine's blue dress is beautiful. I adore the colour and it suits her so well. Her hair looks quite nice here too.

It's interesting how we all see things differently . I personally love the top of this gown and the cutouts. Her hair loose actually works for me with this look. One of my favourite evening looks for Kate. And the earrings too are so lovely.

Interesting to see what Catherine wears tonight at the EACH dinner in Norfolk tonight. I am hoping for a repeat of the lovely turquoise lacey gown she wore just before the Olympics in 2012, or perhaps a repeat of the gown she wore 2 weeks ago, but with the Queen Mothers sapphire fringe earrings this time.

One of my favorites from her wardrobe. Glad to see that she's wearing it again.

Pretty gown, but the shade is too subtle for her dark colouring I feel.

One of her few evening looks I absolutely love I agree, could do with being in a brighter color, but happy she brought this one out of the closet.

So elegant. This is a real classy look and I like the subtle shade - a brighter colour would have made the gown too flashy with the shiny embellishments.
Kate is looking so good this summer and we can't complain about any lack of a variety in the way her hair is styled.

^^ lol I was just thinking that about her hair. Her low chignon is lovely. Very elegant look.

I like the pink dress even better now than I did the first time. Not sure why exactly.

I likes the dress when she wore it back in 2010 and I still like it though she looks thinner. I also love when she repeats cu I know it pisses the press off.

Very nice dress,with a good. Neckline for her. Her hair looks really lovely from the side and back but not from the front. Needed better styling in the front. The orangey highlights fight with the color of the dress.

The pink gown is stunning! Very regal, elegant, and refined. This is one of her best looks.
