Its Temperly London

not her worst but not her best either. i like the colour but too much lace and the bow at the belt needs to go, the top part looks very granny. the hair is nicely styled for having it down, we still got the bad posture.

She does seem very fond of lace, but for the occasion, the dress looks fine. I really like Kate in green, and I especially like the earrings.

The dress is lovely and a great color on her, but why does it seem that we keep seeing this look on her. Kinda getting a bit boring, love the earrings though.

Love the color and I like the lace...but I don't like the top. It would of been much nicer if they had done something different with the top...the scoop liner or whatever it is looks odd.

It's nice, but I feel like I've seen her in this ten times before, even if it's new

It's not new, you have seen it before.

It actually has a semi-low scoop at the back that I like. I hop we get to see it with an updo in the future :)

I think I would of liked it better if it had been solid ...or a different configuration of the lining placement....

kate looks statuesque no matter what she wears... the fit it just perfect (even if the dress design wouldn't be my top choice on a rack, kate makes it come alive).

Yes it does seem that all Catherine's lace dresses are merging into an amorphous blob. The thing that distinguishes this one is the layering of lace, which is a little different but the contrast of lace against skin on the arms, decolletage and shoulders is both spidery to look at and way too stark although the green is beautiful and it does suit her.

However, I don't think the gold clutch and the shoes suited it at all and looked pallid and washed-out against the depth of the green.

All in all, I like Camilla's green lace an awful lot better and she's having a lot more fun with her jewellery!

Her hair is lovely. And the earrings are stunning

And I love the color if the dress. Green is lovely on her

That said, another boring lace dress. I agree with the atmospheric blob comment.

I find this lace matronly/aging. And the layering is weird, the area just above her knees draws awkward attention.

Great appearance with the green gown. She looked rested with perfect makeup and nicely styled, glossy, bouncy hair which let us see the earrings.

Yes the earrings are gorgeous! Most of her jewelry is though.

I think that Kate's dresses look amorphous because Kate doesn't have much differentiation between her hips and waist. I think she looks best in dresses that show a bit more skin or are a bit fuller in parts to give the dress some shape. I really liked this red dress that she wore in Canada - it has more shape and is different from any dress she's worn before: Kate Middleton dazzles in scarlet cocktail dress for reception on Canadian Royal Tour - Mirror Online

I like the dress but I don't think it likes Catherine. From the videos she can't seem to walk very well in it but that might just be the angle. The colour is lovely and I think if you suit lace, there's not harm in sticking to it.
