This is so cute on her, what a difference this is. This shows a different side to Catherine and I like it, the color is great on her and the style is relaxing and looks down to earth for her, not the fancy gowns she wears all the time. I can't seem to find pictures of those earrings that everyone is talking about yet I agree that some bling is needed there, hair up in loose waves and earrings with a few gold bracelets would really make this dress pop. And flats not heels of any kind would be better.

This off-the-shoulder berry red dress looks very beautiful and it suits her perfectly. Its more relaxed style and she seems to find it comfortable to wear. I would have added a lovely brooch/long necklace/belt or some interesting hair pin, because overall style seemed to lack something.
I really like her hair this length, it looks very thick and healthy and makes her look younger.

Great dress for a beach party.

I like that she tried something new but it didn't work. The dress is lovely and a great color and style. The shoes are pretty but not with the dress (I think these shoes would looked great with the Erdem outfit in Poland), the red earrings were just too red with the dress. The overall was boring as she didn't accessorize it properly.

I like the "concept" but I don't like the execution or how she looks. The bust area reminds me of Madonna's cones and her hair makes her older than her years.

Super interesting!
Great dress for the beach (I wore several dresses like this in Majorca when I was a teen). It's not for an official visit.

I like it, but it's too long; that makes her look dowdy.

I don't think the colour suits her. Not a fan of the dress or the sandals.

I don't care for it either; she has much better dresses.
But I suppose she wanted to wear a German designer to please her hosts.


(She can always retire this after she gets home).

But what I want is for someone to tell William to stop mixing colours in his clothes. Earlier we had brown, black, navy and white. Now it's a mis match. Like ugh!

I have to say, I prefer this dress and even the shoes to the red dress outfit. I too think that William needs some advice about his colour choices, and that jacket looks a bit creased as well.

Not a good look IMO, dark and downy. This dress is to dark for her, all I see is a mass of dark fabric and those shoes are horrible, are they really shoes to begin with? Do not like the print of the fabric nor the color, yet the style would be nice in a different fabric.

William, now is that jacket made out of linen? I looked closely at the pictures and could not decided if it was linen or something else. The color is nice on him as always and the pattern in the fabric is very nice, so does anyone know the designer of this jacket that could help tell us what it is made of. Maybe the valet if there is one could of had it pressed before hand...that would of helped with the wrinkles.

I really like this dress and also how she has worn a German designer. The colours suit Catherine well.
