I think the lace is too heavy and open and to my mind, did not flatter her figure in any way, but agree the heavy eyeliner was too serious, in fact I would go further and say her whole makeup look was very heavy and, as another poster commented, made her look hard.

What do others think about the shoes and clutch bag, because I think these are really poor choices.
Hmm, I was very disappointed with the her hair. If Catherine had put it up herself well, with her heavy schedule, it would have been fine. But, she took a hairdresser and that has got to be one of the most messy and unfinished looks I have seen from a 'professional'. I also think the front didn't have any 'lift' and looked very heavy around her face which accentuated the 'tired' look.
As for the accessories, well I agree they are too heavy to wear with lace.

In a nutshell.
I would be very surprised if she wasn't tired. I know there are people who think that a Royal Tour
is a doddle but I strongly disagree. The amount of prep work required throughout a tour this long must be incredible and, add that to mixing the wardrobe, etc. I think she has done pretty well across the whole tour. Some fabulous hits, some ho hum repeats and some just plain misses. But that's what this thread is all about.
Props to both of them for being up in the wee hours for the ANZAC Dawn Parade and Service. It must have been chilly as she apperared to have bundled up with her white or cream scarf wrapped up high around her neck.
