If she had scoliosis or similar curvature, I don't see Mike and Carol having not had it treated. I think it simply a matter of lazy/bad posture.

Isn't it (her stance) also partly a function of wearing such high heels? Heels as high as the ones she wears throw your whole body off kilter, unless you learn how to compensate.

She looked wonderful. The dress is beautiful, as stated before, much better than her usual style. I don't mind the hair but the look does highlight her bad posture.

Not sure about the sandal choice as well - you don't need to be matchy these days but the colour is and odd choice for the dress and bag.
A miss for me, Kate has nicer cocktail dresses in her closet that are worthy of a recycle.
you summed up what I think perfectly!

The model down the page has the kind of styling that would make this pop. The hair was down as well, but at least behind her shoulders giving a better view of neck and shoulders. A simple necklace, and a pair of silver pumps matching the detailing on the dress.

Kate Middleton Wears Cream Off-the-Shoulder Barbara Casasola Dress to Art Fund Museum of the Year Dinner

This is probably the best I've seen her in a formal setting in a long time. Her dress is exquisite on her thing frame; love her shoes. But again, as always, it's her hair. I believe that if she had wore her hair off her face, she'd had been taken more seriously. EVERYBODY knows by now that Catherine has gorgeous hair, but she doesn't need to have it in her face for a formal function!

The dress was nice and so was the fit. Catherine has nice enough shoulders to pull off this style but unfortunately her bad posture ruined it.

Glad that she has found sandal heels but they didn't match her outfit in anyway nor did they seem to be glamorous enough for the event.

It was a very striking outfit and very unusual! I do think this could also be a great day-time dress too.

i don't really see anything wrong in kate's posture - where do the other posters see this? i thought it's just a matter of her being tall, so in most pictures she is lowering herself down to be closer to her interlocutor.

I've looked at this dress several times and I still can't find anything I like about it.

I agree. It's a departure from some of her other dresses, but it's beautiful. I don't mind her hair being down tonight as she's been wearing her hair back/up more frequently.

This is a really lovely dress, but for some reason, it doesn't sit well in my mind. Perhaps it is the hair being down? I don't know whether it is because it gives off a sweater type vibe (being wintery white) or just the different directions of the lines. I don't know how to explain it, so its not making sense!! Ugh

It is a definite hit from me. I love to see her experimenting with different styles. A perfect choice for this engagement.

I agree with you regarding the posture issue. It was especially noticeable when she was standing next to a very tall man. She just frequently is talking with people who are much shorter than she.

Strongly dislike it- can't say why- best reason I can come up with is that it looks like it was made out of hotel bath towels, dishcloths, or sheets- can't decide which.

Even better pic of Kate tonight... https://twitter.com/allthingsregal/s...19968383705088

Not sure about the tea length dress rather than a floor length formal. Recycled yesterday's shoes and the maple leaf brooch, it seems.

Lovely dress, I like the length, doesn't need yo be floor length to be formal. Her hair looks great. Just a note Kate, you don't need to wear the flag we only wear red on Canada day not as a wardrobe here. But elegant look
