I surprisingly find myself liking her hat a lot. Rare for me when not proper hat.

I love the color of her dress. And the style of it is fantastic. Fantastic necklace

The fabric thohgh is wrong. I really like she chose a coloured stone to contrast with all green look. But the chunky earring it's set in doesn't work.

I thought Sophie's entire ensemble worked exceptionally well. Each piece working off the other such as the flash of amber/orange on the earring picking up on the pale straw colour of her hat and, at the same time, providing a flash of warmth under the shaded brim.
The dress seemed to be made of either fine wool or some such and that particular shade of forest green did wonders for Sophie's colouring. The style, with its long yet shapely line, was designed for a woman's figure and the tiny flirty flip at the hem was delightful as indeed was the length.

This dress was made for a woman secure in her own skin, nearer in age to Sophie than Catherine and Sophie rocked it. The precise tilt of the hat, her earrings, her deliberate use of a large green pendant framed by the green of her dress neckline was a master stroke. Her cream clutch and shoes and most of all her deportment, all of these worked together to produce a very classically elegant and confident woman.

The green dress had a great neckline and the jade necklace was perfect for it as was the hat. However, the way the dress was seamed,was,very distracting. I don't like a middle seam in a dress, especially in a solid color. They also seamedmthe sleeve right down the middle. A very cheap way to do things designed as "fashion"

Not crazy about the pink dress, it has a kind of droopy feel about it. But that hat is to die for!!!!!!

Interesting style and the side glimpse suggests the it would be good to get a view of the back. This is a lovely Ascot outfit.

This ensemble is rather elegant. I don't even mind a fashionable open-back.

A rich green dress paired with a whimsical hat was a perfect choice on Sophie's part.

The color is great. And I love her hat

But the collar and sleeves Reminds me of a little girl. Needs to go.

I love her hat from yesterday but the dress wasn't my favourite. The material just looked so hot and heavy. I think I'd like it more if it wasn't so long. If it was above the knee i'd love it. The colour is gorgeous though.

Very nice outfit for the Countess. I do like her in cream, which some don't seem to wear well. And of course her hair and hat are lovely.

I like this dress and much prefer the length of this dress. Sophie is with her dad today so she isn't in the Royal Box and she isn't wearing her Royal Box badge.

That hat is simply incredible. The dress is fine without the collar/sleeves.

I haven't like any of the dresses Sophie wore this week. Wickstead continues her trend of badly fitted dresses. Plus Sophie's insistence on wearing stockings and those ugly shoes brings the outfits into frump territory.

The hats have been glorious though. Especially the pink one from Wednesday.

I like what Sophie's wearing today -- the white ensemble with A-line elements in the skirt. The fabric on these current dresses of hers does seem heavy, but overall, they fit into what I see as her signature look. Great hat as usual for the Countess,

I am not sure about the pink and the white ... there is something about them that I just don't like The hat with the pink dress is very English country garden and a bit too garden for me. Is Emilia Wickstead for her I have started to question that fashion relationship.

The cream is by far her best look. This is the sophie I love

I love the detail in the skirt. And the neckline. Enough detail to make cream dress just that much more interesting

Beautiful updo.
