Sometimes the seaming is ok as a design element...but I think it's often overdone.

I loved Sophie's hat and hair...her dress is just boring to me. The color is good..the style is good...but it just looks to heavy on her.

i dont think Sophie's Ascot dress was flattering on her- it was fine, i just think she is better than that dress.

My only issue is the seam running down the front.
Is it not possible to make clothes with the obvious seams?
i don't believe it would have been possible to have such a multi-gored bottom half of the dress without a centre-front seam.

I loved the earrings but i'm not a fan of sky blue, but of the two Ascot days, this was my preferred Sophie outfit.

The blue dress is certainly her color and a good cut but not for her.seen from the front, a pic walking with princess mary, she almost looks lost in the skirt of the dress. Way too long and large for someone of her size. Height of closer to six feet and skinned could pull this off. From the waist up she looks great.
The white puffed sleeved one also,looks,like,a,nightgown

One thing I love about Sophie is she is not afraid to try new things! I love the skirt and her hat is a bit extravagant, but I wouldn't expect anything less from Sophie! I also really like the colour of the skirt.

I like Sophie's skirt but that's about it, her top looks ill-fitting and her shoes are the wrong shade to go with her skirt and fascinator.

I love the skirt, especially the color Not a fan of the top. And I have to say I love the over the top hat. It is Ladies day, while royal Ascot is always known for its hats, Ladies day is the day where they really shine. Love she really took a leap with hers.

a bit over the top for my taste - but it is ladies day at Ascot so if not now then when?

and obviously there was an orange/ coral memo circulating in the castle network

I have to agree with TRF members noting that the top is not flattering. The hat and the Tiffany T bracelet are nice.

I think that Sophie can wear anything just as long as she smiles. She has such a beautiful smile! It's the dimples I think! Well done James for inheriting those.

Sophie

That's just what I think. The colour of the skirt is very pretty and perfect for summer, but the rest of Sophie's outfit is a little strange.

I'm with you on this one....the skirt is the best part ...the rest was just not done well.

All of those are extremely flattering photos. Take a look at the video of her from slightly above as she is walking. Or the still shots of her head on. She looks like she is drowning in the skirt and very top heavy as well

Wonderful! The white top and coral skirt are just perfect! She read my mind! After seeing her in the blue tea length dress, not flattering, I was thinking, how could a shortish, busty woman get away with that skirt length? Exactly, a contrasting color crop top to make her look taller and less busty. I think it worked. Ugly shoes however
