I really like this red full-skirted Marchesa dress. Love its eye-catching color, its chic and has lovely vintage vibe. Very beautiful dress. Great find!
But this dress requires updo or her hair should have been styled away from her shoulders (now her curls were distractingly on her shoulders and hiding upper part of her dress and her earrings).
And I don't think her makeup is working for her because it aging her -- dark eye liner and shadows look too severe on her skin, it makes her eyes look smaller and she looks older. I wish she would go for something fresh and flattering for a change.

I am not so over the moon with the dress, it's something different, colour is great, what I don't like is the hair all over the place and that EVERYTHING is maroon, maybe clutch and shoes should have been black to break up this massive maroon appearance.
I like the earrings but they would have deserved hair up.

On the other hand, I think it all works well. I am not a fan of the earrings so am happy to have them hidden. But I accept your broader point, if you wear statement earrings, the hair has to be out of the way so they can be seen.

The Marchesa dress was a nice dress, nice fit and a great color of Catherine but the rest was a total miss and messy. The hair shouldve been pulled all up, the earrings i red, long and childish IMO, nothing pretty about them. She should've worn nice studs. The clutch and heels in maroon, boring! They should've been in black.

The whole look was too maroon, couldn't get a clear view of her earrings with the open hair.

It's a pity because Catherine has the nice outfits and sometimes it's just ruined with the easiest things like hair and accessories.

Personally, I like the matchy-matchy look occasionally when you are a Princess. So the dress, shoes and bag are okay. I am not a fan of the earrings, but if she had to wear them, then she should have styled her hair differently so that they were visible.

As someone with long hair, I often wear my hair long with earrings that dangle to give a glimpse and whisper of color or sparkle as you walk. I don't think all earrings are meant to be 'Seen'. Personally these are earrings I would own and I def would not put may hair up or pulled back to show them off - I would just use as a color accent and let the dress shine on it own.

Don't like the choice of earrings with that dress. The dress is busy enough as it is, and I would have preferred (as if she cares what I prefer LOL) to see simple but striking jewelry. Are there any nice ruby earrings in the vault?

The Duchess' dress is by Marchesa this evening. Pics to follow!

Pink Dress - 99% sure it's new.

I hate Marchesa. Don't think Royals should associate with this brand.

the dress is stunning so far and works extremely well to show off that gorgeous necklace. apparently the sleeves are bell sleeves. maybe it is a custom creation for kate?

i am guessing it is this dress made in custom with a long skirt and in pink:

The dress is pink/blush, but it has a wedding gown feel to it. The cleavage for a state banquet? The plunging neckline is what a Hollywood actress would go for, not a future queen. And for such a statement necklace, a streamline gown would have worked in a bold color if Kate didn't want to copy Letizia's red.
