She looked nice in that coat. She has a thing for furry hats this winter.


I think Kate's hair would look great styled like this. Less curly, but more wavy

Gawd I'm tired of the overuse of thr word updo. Despite that I agree that the blue sequins dress looked tacky and made it look like she was wearing a sparkly sack; no shape at all.
Is it the word "updo" itself or is it the notion of putting her hair up that you are tired of?

A nice surprise to see Catherine - I like her outfit. It's nothing exciting but still nice.

The coat is gorgeous on her, very elegant and chic. That is one of my favorite coats that she owns, the hat..........is it fur? Can we tell by pictures or maybe it is fake fur for some fake furs look real as I know that for sure.

I know flat ironed hair is the style but I love Kate's naturally curly hair. Hair straightening takes lots more time too.

According to 'what kate wore' its alpaca.

Like the coat, which she wore Christmas 2014, the hat is old.

Thank you Countessmeout for the info on the hat. Catherine looks nice in that hat yet I really love the dark brown one she wore earlier when checking out the site. That is one classy looking hat and would love it for my hat collection. Fur is not my cup of tea, yet I have a fake fur that is 15 years old and some people still to this day think it is real and it isn't. Just take care of it and keep it in a linen garment bag over the summer time and works all these years for me as it is the warmest coat I have......so I wear it when it is below freezing here.

Alpaca and Angora are lovely textiles that you can gather/use without harm to the animal so it's a great option for those who like natural materials.

So soft. Touching an Alpaca is like sinking your hands into a cloud.

Agreed, alpalca and angora are definitely humane (not harm to animal) and good options I actually love angora.

I hate this hat, not because I don't like wearing fur, but because I just find it ugly.

Love Pippa's hat at the service. Very nice decoration. Looks classy. Loving these real hats.

Fur keeps one warm. No getting around it's a wise choice and usually a major investment across years. Kate would look good in St Petersburg, Russia.

I think that Kate looked very nice in the tweed coat and I liked the alpaca hat on her, as well. I especially loved the Chanel bag that she carried as it has handles and she cannot clutch it to hide whatever she tries to hide! :)

And IMO the pattern is a practical choice if you're working with kids and paint!

Very smart looking coat and a timeless design! But I don't care for the dress. It has a cheap looking fabric and I don't think it flatters the Duchess.

Really love that coat Catherine had on, one gorgeous wool coat that looked very well made and perfect on her. Think a nice scarf and gloves would of dressed it up a bit.......she looks so happy and having babies does agree with her....
