The skirt is a tad bit short but she looks really nice.

She looks really lovely. Classy and youthful at the same time. Love the hair and the hat....and her tan legs are to die for. I do wonder if the jacket would have looked better with three-quarter length sleeves...

I like the white of outfit most because of the tan.
It seems to me the same on the basis of the photo posted by MRSJ.

You're welcome. I posted more in their current events thread :) I always find the greatest photos on TRF's instead of the papers/magazines because we have awesome posters!

I like the Derby look, with the exception of the fact that the skirt is just a touch too short. With heels that high, an inch longer would have resulted in a more proportionate look.

As for whether the skirt and jacket are different shades, I think what we're seeing is actually different fabric densities. It's not uncommon even for very expensive designers to pair a thin, floaty skirt/dress with a heavier jacket. I've always rather liked the look.

The hat is killingly chic, and wearing her hair up with it was exactly the right choice.

I loved Catherine's hat a lot, but I was unsure of the entire ensemble. I adored her shoes, however.

Loved the look ... especially the new hair style. Only makes me wish that she had worn her hair in this style for the wedding --- would have made a perfect topper for the perfect dress :)

Catherine looks really pretty, I like more the jacket that the skirt. The shoes are good. She looks lovely with the hair pulled up. The hat is very pretty.

Catherine looks older with her hair up. Perhaps today she was trying for a more mature/sophisticated look. Not bad at all.

Someone on the Fashion Spot noticed that Kate's shoes were from L.K. Bennett London.

Sledge2 Court Taupe L.K.Bennett

I like her hair in this style and the color does appear to be a little lighter.

Adore the hat and her hair up in a smart bun - jury for me is out on the outfit. The Reiss dress is lovely but just not sure if it was right at the Derby and the jacket is smart but is abit heavy for the floaty chiffon aspect of the dress. It is a good investment jacket and hopefully she will be able to wear it with other outifts. Shoes are great (Sophie and Eugenie have the same pair - both wore them at Easter) L K Bennett shoes are great and so comfy to wear and not expensive.

I like everything about the outfit but the hat. Really like her hairdo.

I have to agree with you LadyMac... I find the skirt way too short.The hair out of Catherine's face is different for a change and quite becoming as it shows her features more.

Nice to see Catherine out and about.
Love her hair up for a change.
She looks lovely, dress is a little too short.

As a first formal outing as Duchess of Cambridge I think she has done very well. I loves the white contrasted with the neutral hat clutch and (divine) shoes.

However, I think the dress is a little too short even though it is obvious that she has very long legs and it was not in the least vulgar. The chiffon type material in the skirt is also something that needs to be avoided for open air appearances as she is at the mercy of the elements and we do not want any "wardrobe malfunctions".

I loved her up-do and over time she will finesse the "finish" required, but the style was lovely and suited her chapeau. Perhaps Zara could give her a few hints on how to achieve the shine immaculate finish desired.

Overall an A for a first outing and for having the confidence to use an up-do, which is something that neither of the York girls have yet even attempted.

Nice summary. I agree with you that DofC II(the younger) looked smashing.Very lovely, youthful and well put together.

The York princesses are in a very different position than DofC II. I actually like many of the outfits the rest of the posters have fits about. They are individualists and somewhat eccentric in their choices and I like that. I would bet that the queen has fun with their choices as well or they would not be as experimental as they are. They appear to have a close relationship with their grand mother and would most certainly not upset her. I rather look at the York princesses than other young royal women looking like young versions of older matrons.
