I think she looks fantastic and I love the low ponytail she's sporting. It's different from how she usually wears her hair and I hope she continues trying out different hairstyles. The only thing I'm not too keen about are the shoes. I don't think the black pumps are the best choice for this dress.

She looked great in the tiara from the other night, wish we also had a photo of the dress.

I'm quite surprised to see Kate wearing a French designer. I thought there was some kind of untold rule saying that British royal ladies must wear UK brands . I'm not complaining, she's looking sexy as hell...
I don't care about the Zara necklace. If she wants to be known as the highstreet princess, that's her problem.
My only complain is about her hair : a ponytail ? C'mon !

It appears Princess Beatrice was also wearing the necklace yesterday.

I think that a necklace with some gold tones would have looked nicer with the shade of the dress. I'm not a fan of dresses cut that high, but she's following the fashion rule by covering up elsewhere. All in all, I like the general look.

I've looked at the pix and it seems similar but doesnt seem to be on the same scale as the one DoC is wearing and it looks as though there is gold coloured metal. Need someone with forensic eyesight on this one (which counts me out)

She looks fine. She always looks fine to fantastic. I'm not a fan of the messy ponytail.

She looks fine; people are always saying she should try different hairstyles yet are critical when she does.
I like her dress, but I'm glad she tried to give it a new twist with contrasting accessories and that necklace.

I'm not a fan of the necklace at all. As soon as I caught a glimpse of the chains that fasten the necklace it was obvious that it was paste and looked cheap. If she wanted to wear a large statement piece to dress up or change the look of a gown that she has worn in the past perhaps borrowing something that is authentic or a statement piece that is a bit more original. Her make up was lovely, the dress is very pretty but I wasn't a fan of the hair. It was a bit too messy for my liking and didn't match the style of dress and large necklace. A younger, hipper less elegant dress would have worked better with the hairstyle.

Meh...it's ok. Not a fan of the dress or the necklace. I think the extension of the slit is a bit much.

Really - has it? EDIT: I've looked at pictures form both occasions and it looks the same to me. Angles can of course be deceiving. Agree to differ on this one.

Not mad about the outfit that the Duchess wore to the premiere of "Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom".

I love the white dress. I love the simplicity of it; very classic and elegant. I just don't like the necklace or the hair.

I like the look. For those that don't like it with the black shoes, maybe it was on purpose. Black and White together for the Mandela premier.

Interesting theory! It seems as though black shoes with white gowns (and vice versa) have been a staple on the runways and red carpets these last few months. Sometimes it looks sharp, sometimes clunky. Welcome to TRF!

I fully agree with you. A polished ponytail would have been much better.

Roland Mouret's dresses are timelessly elegant. His attention to tailoring and asymmetry are superb. You are right about the necklace. Cheap bijouterie, Chanel or Zara, is still cheap.

Not bad at all. Now that we know what she likes in a blingy neck-piece, maybe someone will get her one. Diamonds, graduated ropes that look geometric overall. 18-20 inches in platinum. William, are you listening?

I've decided Mrs. Cambridge (Wales, Windsor-Mountbatten, whatever) thinks her legs are worth showing off. I like a woman with a positive body image.
Oh and can anyone tell is she was wearing her diamond bracelet, because, I would nor have - with that necklace.

Catherine wore this dress before and she still looks great in it.
