I like the color combo...but I'm with the other two (so far) who think it looks like a sack...

Shoulders back would help more than a bit. But her general demeanor makes up for a lot. She always seems so pleasantly in the moment to me. Of course, the weight of the world is not on her shoulders, but I always think of her as the Aunt/Mom/Niece that lifts the room just a bit without being over-the-top perky.

I thought the girls looked cute too. Obviously not yet at the age where how their hair looks outweighs the pain of brushing the hair. That will come soon enough.

I have read that she is a former model, so she should have much better posture. Speaking of, does anyone know any details around her modeling?

This is what I suspect, but also hope someone will know for sure.

Not a model as in magazines and such. In her university days as well as bar tending, she is said to have done promotional modelling. You know when you go to a car show and they have girls showing off cars. Or handing out drinks at a pub or promotion. Basically good looking women hired to hang around and get men's attention. She did some minor acting as well.

Autumn at Royal Ascot today, June 20, although the colours and print are nice, it looks a bit matronly to me:

^^ Autumn's dress looks reminds me of the red & white McQueen Kate wore on Canadian tour. A blue version. I think she looks nice - but maybe the camera angle is what makes it feel a bit matronly.

Mercy that dress Autumn has on is so not good for her...makes her look squat and heavy.

lol I just thought the same thing. Then I saw your post. All I can say is it worked better on Kate. It's not my favorite, but Kate pulled it off better.

Yeah you need to be very slim and taller or you end up looking like Autumn looks..squat and dumpy. She usually looks much better...really surprised she picked this.

I wouldn't have recognized her if not for her husband walking with her. She's usually more dashing looking.

The dress looked great in the picture I first saw - waist up and in profile. The fascinator was cute from that angle, too.

And to be fair, he looks a bit squat, today, too (off topic, I know )

Honestly I don't like the dress on either woman. It one if Kate's worst tour looks. Not a fan of pattern and find the over all style matronly.

I actually think autumns would look better on Kate then the red. Pattern is nicer, and the shorter sleeves and neckline are a bit fresher.

But yes sadly, like her sister in law, autumn chose a dress not suited to her body. Both looked bigger then they are.
