It's taffeta so it wouldn't be for summer.

The dress is attractive enough but not anything exceptional. Perhaps Kate chose it because it's something she'd easily be able to wear on many occasions? Still, she looked very pretty.

I don't love it don't hate it ... it is more of a day outfit IMO but I love the splash of red

It reminds me of one that Letizia has and has worn a few times. I think it's the fabric and cut that looks similar to Letizia's .
Her diamond bracelet makes another appearance.

This is not my favorite look on her. There is nothing special about it. About the only thing I like is the red clutch. I also hate those platform heels she is wearing..

Not a fan of this look...

Somehow the bodice looks unattached to the skirt, as tho a black T-shirt has been thrown over a lace dress.

It looks like a summer dress to me too. It's very similar to the day dresses she wore in Malaysia and Singapore on the jubilee tour.

I don't care for this dress at all. The only thing I liked was the red clutch, but even that didn't accessorize well with the outfit.

I usually love Kate in Alice Tempelery but that is an eyesore. Miss.

I love this dress, you're not the only one. The thing I would like to be switched there is the white behind the black dress, I think nude would've worked much better.

Kate usually nails it in the evening but I don't care for that black print cocktail dress at all.

On the other hand, her hair is back to looking beautiful and healthy!

It's not my favorite, but I'm glad that the on site reporters are pointing out the difference between garments in-person and in photographs.

Not my favorite either. I can't put my finger on it but it's like something's missing. Her hair does look a lot better. Color and shine are back.

Don't know about the dress. I don't think this kind of waists suit her, it makes her look like a little girl. She looks better in shapes that follow her body IMO.
The clutch is very nice.
Her hair looks great, but don't like how it is draped around her face in some pictures it looks like she has a giant beard.

I usually like lace, but I have to say that I'm not a huge fan of this outfit. I think the top half of the dress doesn't go with the rest of it and I'm not too keen on the pattern. However, Catherine herself looked good and I like her hairstyle.

Agree with many that the dress does nothing for her, a little girlish imo, not too elegant. Her hair, however, looked wonderful, color, cut and shine.
