I actually like the assymetrical aspect of the dress. But I hate the sleeve side. It ruins the look. It would have looked much better if it had just been a wide strap on that side, and ended at the shoulder.

But I don't like the odd length of the dress. And the shoes are hideous.

It wasn't the best night for either of the royal ladies. It is a rather unflattering design for Victoria.

Exactly. Especially the sleeves. Pick one or the other.

I like T-strap shoes, but not these. And especially with tights.

I like edgy dresses and Victoria can pull them off. Alas not this time. Her overall style was all over the place --- her left bare arm looked weirdly naked compared to her right side, those shoes were hideous with her black stocking, length of the dress made her look short and stocky and black didn't look good with her pale skin. Sorry but wrinkly and badly designed dress are not my cup of tea; perhaps if it had been of some other color I would have liked it better. Her hairstyle look good from the side but from the front, the same&usual flat and tight

One time I definitely thought the men looked much classier then their wives.

Couldn't have said it better. Agree with all your points.

This look is terrible. I don't like the skirt or the shoes. The blouse is the overall worst.

I have to agree with many of you, this is awful! That skirt is just cheap looking and the shoe booties with that skirt just make it worse.

Oh God what is the Crown Princess wearing looks thrown together and a fashion disaster.

No. Simply no. The materials are extremely cheap looking and the BOOTS. They are awesome, but why under a skirt like this?! Any decent stylist would not approve of the footwear tonight. Not to mention the slit just makes it worse.

I like neither the skirt nor the top - but I do have to admire the edge of the overall look. The pop of that blue clutch against the black and red made it for me. And, I am finally at peace with short boots.

I could not call it "royal" And it is nothing I would wear (that red shirt!). But I do think it fun and risky without being inappropriate or too young.

I still think she and Kate made a pact to wear gutsy choices together and to share the fallout. We can remember it as "that official visit with the wacky evening wear."

Starting to think Victoria and Kate made a pact to look like their stylist went on strike

This is bad. The skirt is cheap. The slit is horrible. I don't mind bare legs, but it looks horrible here.

I like the top, the pop of read but doesn't save the look at all.

The boots wouldn't be bad with a pair of trousers. But with the skirt

I've no problem with either of them, I've decided. Victoria looks snazzy. The shoes and skirt length are totally okay. I'd wear it on a night out. It's almost as though Victoria is 'breaking out' of the rigid confines of an eternally conservative style, 'mom approved'. Good for her! JMO.

The black skirt just looks cheap to me. Her red blouse and the boots make her outfit look like a costume, does her no favors

Totally agree with you 100%, both ladies tonight look ridiculous and it is a shame that neither could find a chic elegant dress to wear given all they both have in their closets. If this was to get attention, done and all for the wrong reasons. Just horrible dresses on both Catherine and Victoria, what were they even thinking is beyond anyone's guess.
