Quite right. If it is not the length of the dress, she will be accused of being too boring in her sense of dress. When she wears heels, she will be criticised fo rnot wearing flats, when she wears flat or low heeled boots, it is suggested that higher heeled shoes will match the dress better. The reality is, those that want to whine, will, come what may!

So tired of lace but I really love this look - one of the best evening looks for Kate, so regal and beautiful.

One thing I love about black evening wear is that its the perfect foil for setting off diamonds to sparkle.

The black gown is one of her best looks. So very regal and stunning.

A very boring outfit, plain coat and dark tights and shoes.

I really like the coat and I like the boot. Not a fan of the pants/tights..whatever they are.

She needs something besides black.

Regular smart and elegant work wear for a pregnant royal. IMO, not every outfit has yo be exciting or make a fashion statement.

Agree 100%. Being fashion-forward can get wearing after a while (there's so much more to be interested in in the end). In fact there are two European princesses who I notice have latched onto particular styles for themselves and just endlessly 'repeat-and-rinse' said style, like boiler-plate. I totally get it.

I'm happy that she is repeating this. It's very beautiful and elegant. A marvelous look.

The first look is odd. The proportions are off. There is a reason people wondered if she was wearing tights or trousers. That is a dress coat, its meant to be worn over a dress. The way it is hanging off of her, gives the impression she has a huge baby bump, or a dress under. Or that there should be a belt on the coat and she left it at home.

If she is going to wear skinny jeans, she needs a more fitted coat. This makes her look more pregnant then she is. As we see in the second look, she doesn't have a bump yet. Coat better suited to dress or when she is further pregnant.

I do like the coat though, just not here. Though I don't like the odd white buckles or whatever on the sleeves and back. Seems odd. Like the collar.


The second look is much better. Once again, I love her simpler casual looks.

I actually love the puffy jacket. It works on her as not over sized. Red is great.

The sneakers fit the great casual look and the event.

Again, her casual looks she looks her age, and appropriate.

She is pregnant, so all yeah for looking pregnant. Wearing a coat that is so oversized, when paired with skinny jeans, that she looks several months more pregnant then she is, is a different matter. Nothing professional about it.

If it was a matter of clothes not fitting, her growing, would be different. But it clearly isn't. She is wearing skinny jeans, and a fitted jacket later on.

Actually, viewed from the side she definitely looks pregnant.

I really don’t think we shouldn’t be criticizing any pregnant woman on how she looks.

Pardon? This is a fashion thread, a maternity fashion thread to be precise. Of course we are going to talk about the fit, fashion and fails. That's what we're here for.
