This is so true!! Yet another lace dress and all of them somehow seem to be the same although they aren't.
Lace is not Kate's best friend, very often she looks matronly etc.

I don't mind the print and the coloring but I think that shape of the necklice is more flattering on big-boned women, like, say Crown Princess Victoria! I like the ponytail though, it looks really fresh on Kate.

I love the ponytail, nice young fresh look on her. And the earrings

I like the color of the dress but the neckline and pattern aren't great. Dowdy or matronly.

I like it. Fresh, relaxed and perfect for a semi-casual event with family. I really like the ponytail and am always fond of wearing off shoulder dresses in different ways.

Kate, 35, opted for a full-skirted £1,105 Marchesa dress.

i love it! looks like a party dress. Cant wait to learn more about the earrings.... she is definitely experimenting a bit and moving out side her comfort zone.

I LOVE this dress! The color is smashing on her...the style is GREAT for her. Love the retro 50's feel..so elegant/classy.

The shoes are great too! Not sure about the earrings.

Love the dress & shoes, not wild about the earrings. I wish her hair were up so we could see the top of the dress better. Looks like it is covering some shoulder detailing.

Lovely dress but wrong earrings. Ruby earring would've been perfect.

Glorious! And I don't even mind the earrings. They are so fun. It's a over the top musical event. If there is any event you can wear tassles, that's it!

I am in heaven! That outfit is divine! I don't even mind the hair much but would have loved it a little pinned back if only for those stunning earrings.

I love it too!

It isn't really a formal event so I think the earrings add a playful touch.
And the color is amazing for her!

Earrings are Kate spade New York

https://www.katespade.com/products/p...welry-earrings

The earrings I agree are a change. The dress certainly is not. The retro fifties look is very much her comfort zone. But thankful change from lace.

Another retro dress but this is fantastic. The color is stunning, and I am in love with the style on her.

Though rubies would be lovely, I like her choice. It's nice when Kate chooses more fashion pieces and not jewels. It speaks more to her age. This is the kind of fun event the earrings work for.

I do wish her hair was up. Both to show off the earrings, and top of the dress.
