So can I change my vote or is it too late??
Can I ask where you saw it, please? I'd really like to see a clear picture.

There is a long history between Marchesa, Harvey Weinstein and the casting couch. Therefore this dress still gets a big no for me.

Her dress and shoes are much nicer tonight but I still think she should try a long lob with straight hair.

I usually love the way she dresses, but I'm not sure if it's the hair, her dress itself. or the shoes with the dress...something is off to me and the look is not on point like it usually is.
I love the shoes, I like the dress, and her hair is just ok to me. hmmmm...I don't know. for some reason, she is just not that "polished" looking to me. She usually has the "simple, elegant look to her. But it seems like she might be going for a "trendy" look??

The hair and dress and gold earrings are all lovely. The shoes, however, have odd spacing between the straps. The top strap seems too high ... something there is throwing off the proportions of shoes-leg-dress-hair we're used to with her day looks.

I usually love the Duchess' outfits, but this is a huge miss for me.
I just don't understand the combination of two shades of purple in the shoes and the bag, the blue dress and the golden earrings. The dress is okay, the earings are okay, but the shoes and the bag are not good with this outfit. Pearls and ivory accessories would have made it way more sophisticated and elegant in my opinion. Usually I'm totally in for some nice colored accessories, but this is a missmatch and not half as good as her usual style. I don't know what happened here, after her stunning appereance last night.
I'm still mourning her hair. I absolutely do not understand why she decided to cut it like this. It makes her look so old! I loved the curls and the long hair.

I like the shoes and the hair, everything in between is a miss for me. The dress is plain and quite boring.

Not a fan of this outfit and the shoes in particular stand out but not in a good way,she normally dresses so well but I guess it was an off day.

I don't like anything about her today, the dress is boring. The shoes arent great. The hair is horrible and the clutch isn't matching the rest of the outfit.

It seems like she's worn random items, not put together like she usually is.

I am in the minority because I like the simplicity and freshness of this look.

I regress. This outfit is vanilla, beige, bland, basic. I could give a few more definitions but I'll stick with these.

I like it too. Simple dress with unexpected fun shoes. Her hair looks so lush and healthy curled like that. The only nit pick I have is different jewelry.

Yes...a nod to the retro too. I am not a fan of white usually, but she looks great in this. If Charlene was in it people would be going on and on about how chic it was...(where is my eye rolling icon)...

So do I. The shoes are a good balance to the simple dress. Love her hair too.

That is what I think as well.
The dress is pretty but needs a necklace or pin.

The reports are saying the dress is pale blue. Hard to tell from the photos but In which case, I think the purple accessories would work well.

I wonder if she was trying to compliment the "Hope" display in blue and purples. she looked lovely but i thought a little under accessorized (but maybe she felt she had run the table the night before on jewelry and would just go simple )

I like her shoes & clutch, but the dress needs a necklace or brooch.

For those who do not like her shorter hair, IMO it is due to extensions being taken out, so if she decides she doesn't like this length they can always be put back in.

That wonderful necklace filled in her v neckline so prettily!
