I love this dress. It's different but not overly fussy. It's still quite simple. And I love the aplique on the waistline...

Not feeling this dress. She needs some jewels (necklace, bracelets, big earrings) with this outfit. Just boring, except for the color. Wish she would have worn something like this...

Just NO ! Ghastly throwback to bad 70s, home-made elasticated monstrosities, thrown together by overenthusiastic Mothers on their sewing machines for their distinctly unenthusiastic teenage daughters...

This is just HIDEOUS..

She looks so cute and it is a different style for her. I'm happy to see she is being so unique with her style this time around; Ive never been so impressed with so many looks in such close succession. And for a woman who is so thin this just fits her well and gives her the appearance of curves.

I think Catherine rocked the red dress tonight. That colour is gorgeous.

Check out her red earrings. They're cute, fun and go perfectly with the summer dress. I think a necklace might have clashed with the neckline/off the shoulder look.

The more I look at the dress, the more I like it. She wears off the shoulder dresses well. It's cute, summery, and different from her usual style.

Pretty color on her, but she should have worn her hair up in order to show the earrings. Without any (visible) jewelry, the dress looks too plain.

Although I love the colour, I don't like the styling of this dress. Agree that if she'd worn her hair up, added a striking necklace and a different shade of shoes it would have helped. She has some great evening dresses which she has worn on just one public occasion, I wish she would repeat some of these teamed with some new accessories rather than add new, unremarkable gowns such as this.

Doesn't really fit in with the rest of the guests, looks like beach to me. All of the shirring adds the appearance of curves to her which is a plus, but it is too plain, I guess a necklace could have helped

I don't usually like off the shoulder style dresses but Kate carries it off. She's tall so it doesn't seem as unbalanced on her as it usually does to me. I also love the color. I don't really like the ribbons at the sleeves. Overall I think it looks good, though. And I truly can't say it enough, I love the new hair length and style.

I like the dress, particularly how it moves. But it needs a touch of zing!
Not a necklace because the neckline make that tricky. So maybe a belt - as its a tad boho maybe "gold coins" or links to brighten it up. Or statement earrings (needs hair to be up - but still in a lose style)

I like the shoes and having seen details of the earrings she wore they are terrific but hair needed to be up for them, IMO.

Hot day apparently - relaxed style matching others there.

Overall its a win.

I just wish William would ditch the blue suits (how many does he need)

I usually like tours for Kate usually steps it up. But this one is just meh

This red dress looks like she is going to a beach. Looks like the elastic dresses nana brought us back from Mexico. Not a good look for occasion.

The color is lovely though.

She should have worn her hair up, to show off earrings and her bare shoulders.

On the boat of those who say needs a necklace of other accessories. Would still not be huge fan of the Mexican fiesta look. But at least make it feel a bit less beach and more summer reception.
