The black dress is simple and pretty, it also seems to be very comfortable. But overall it's not a memorable piece.

Looks black to me and it is a pretty dress. But the thing that stands out for me the most is how beautiful her hair and face look.

Nope. The nude mesh underneath is not pretty and it's not a memorable dress. The lace looks like a table cloth one would find at their grandma's house.

Her hair looks good though. It looks darker to me.

From a journalist not know to be all that supportive

As someone who was there, I'd say it was beautiful in the flesh but photographed terribly....mf

The champagne lining was actually very delicate but looks like American Tan tights in pictures...shame as it was a very, very pretty dress

I think she is appropriately dressed - she is there for the dinner and giving the award, but I feel that she is not staying for the ball (I may be proved wrong). Black tie is v specific for the men (lucky them) but there is a wide range of options for women - particularly in the Uk where anything from trousers thru to cocktail length to floor length dresses are acceptable.

I was about to say the same thing. I don't like the dress but I do think that it doesn't violate the dress code.

Ooh, I think the Duchess looks lovely. The design of the dress is very nice indeed, but as has been previously mentioned, because of the champagne colour underneath, it does not photograph well and I personally object to such a contrast in teh colours of the fabrics used.

I thought she would be in a gala dress as this was a gala event unless I understood it wrong. Nevertheless, the dress is nothing special, she could've worn a cocktail dress from the same designer which would've been much nicer. I like the shorter hair on her but I would've had it pulled up or back for the lace to show in the front. I wasn't fond of the red clutch with the look, it looked out of place even though it added colour.

It is a nice dress, except the front part, she seems like if she was wearing a life jacket, or a bulletprof jacket.

Nothing to dislike about the dress, but nothing remarkable either. I don't think there's any photos that really does the dress justice - she is either holding the clutchbag in front which is not a good pose or, her hair is cascading forwards so we can't see the top of the dress. I recall Catherine wore a lovely pendant on a long chain to an event ( I think it might have been a reception to do with the Olympics) - this would have worked well with this dress I think. It certainly needs something for a special evening. I haven't seen any pics of other guests, but I imagine they would be wearing outfits more suited to a ball rather than a reception.

It looks like a summer dress to me, not a cocktail or a gala dress...I think think it was a proper dress for the ocassion...she looks lovely indeed but she should have choosen a different dress..
