I don't like the dress but hair and jewels accessories are really good!

The dress is very structural and made of v stiff material. Its a quite complex design - I like it.

I can't say I love the dress. But I love that Kate is wearing it! It's fun, it's quirky, it's fashion, it's structural. It's a risk. But a risk based on a very standard Kate silouette! And the styling is traditional, which works very well. I like it!

I'm not sure about the random black lines, but otherwise I like the dress. It's a good style and fit for her. I like the leafy (?) styled belt.

Her hair is fabulous, and I love the pearl necklace. It's such a fun, yet elegant, piece.

I don't care for the top of the dress but the dress as a whole is very interesting. It's great that she's wearing a polish designer and I like that she's mixing it up a it recently with her fashion choices.

Hair, make up, jewellery, etc are all spot on.

I often call Kate boring therefore i love this different and daring dress on her, for me the look works. A Polish designer is a great choice.

Brava! Nice styling, too! Head to toe good stuff, while using a local designer and making a more edgy fashion choice than usual.

I'm glad to see a neat updo, and in general I do like the concept of this white dress with black lines. There is something rather odd going on with the dart lines in the bosom area, but I think this is something new and different and fresh. Good to see a Polish design too.

Catherine's hair and makeup look amazing and her faux pearl earrings and necklace work extremely well with the cut of the dress.

Unfortunately, I am not a fan of the dress itself. The jagged black lines make the skirt look stiff and the piping at the neck goes around the neck on the right and stops half way up the neckline on the left. Too wonky an effect to lend itself to elegance although Catherine gave it her best shot.

Sorry not going to change my opinion she is boring. When 9/10 you wear the same standard silhouettes, the 1 time you differ doesn't make you not boring. Her evening clothes she at least takes chances. Her day looks how often do we say, is that a recycle it looks like...... And if not, well looks it's an inch shorter I'd a shade darker. Today's day look prime example.


Tonight......

Glad she took a chance. I like evenings (her casual looks best) as she does try. But that said the random lines are bizarre and not that flattering.

Her hair looks stunning. And I love the pearl necklace

Not huge fan of ear bobs, but dress modern enough, they work well.

Other then risk, thing I love about dress is belt. Love the detail.

Nice touch going with a polish designer. I was a tad worried she'd do as she dud in Canada, wear a British designer but Canadian flag color. This was great.

I thought maybe they were real pearls?

The hair looks great short but the curls didn't look good and the parting should stop, it simply doesn't flatter her in anyway.

I really like this dress actually, and I find Kate's clothes boring more often than not.

I like her shorter hair but I think she could wear it back, or up, more - that would enhance outfits like this one which may seem boring.

As for the white dress she wore today, I didn't mind it, but the chest area was a bit questionable...it could have been designed better.

I like the dress. Its kind of structural and edgy, a lot more different from the dresses she has worn before. Also nice tribute to wear something by the Polish designer.
Her updo and jewellery looked beautiful and well matched with the dress.

Well, you can't change your mind to the opposite just because she wore one nice outfit which isn't boring. More likely, I would think, this time she looked great! Sometimes she does dress boringly. Everybody has a view on fashion and its always different, we wont always agree with one another on whats nice, what isn't, colors, cuts etc.Opinions need to be respected even though one doesn't agree.

Lovely dress and I love the black lines. This really was something different and it suited her well. I liked the black pumps with the tie around her ankles and the black clutch. Im not fond of the pearls, they look bulky but did look good with the outfit.

I find the white and black dress terrible. One of her worst looks. It's a great style but not the design.

The jagged part of the bottom half of Catherine's dress ruins it for me. I like the design and the dress itself really suits Catherine but the jagged part seems unnecessary. Still; it's lovely that she wore a Polish designer.

The style of the white Polish gown is impressive though I'm not in love with the jagged design; but I feel the overall look is still a plus.
