The Duchess looks lovely, the coat is very nice. However I don't like it with the dress.

She looked great today - so happy and youthful and healthy.

I love it that she wore the hair down, had that kicky swing coat, that it was so short (you go mommy to be) AND that the peter pan collar stuck out at the top. So fun and young.

You know we tend to gripe when she dresses "older than her age." The flip of that is that we should support it when she pushes the YOUNG button.

I love the coat - I'd like to see it with a navy dress (the Mouret for example that she wore when leaving for Canada) or trousers (not skinnies) and a top. IT is a coat that can be used again and again. Good buy.

Glad she took our advice and bought a nice, looks to be lightweight wool crepe pale pink maternity coat. That'll do for the next couple of months.
Really dislike the thick black tights and suede pumps and black accessories with such a pretty spring coat.
The plain black nothing dress could easily be improved upon, Cepe's ideas above are terrific.

My two cents about the length, she is one who can wear short skirts, who has attractive knees.
Most women don't and shouldn't.

Because it's appropriate.

How so? The Queen often shows leg. Yes, her skirts may be a bit longer than Catherine's (always past the knee, although up to her knees are shown when she sits), but the Queen's legs are also shorter and the Queen is herself older and from a different generation.

Catherine has long legs, giving the illusion that she's revealing a larger portion of leg than she actually is. Her dresses (when they're short) hover around her knees, usually either just above or just below - both within what is in style while also maintaining a level of decency that is due to her position.

I loved the coat! It basically can be worn with anything. The dress is way too boring and plain IMO. The peter pan collar looks silly to me. The overall outfit is also way too short, I'm not fond of such short outfits on anyone.

In the pics I saw her skirt was well above the knee when standing.

You answered your own question there. I explained that I understood these clothes are not maternity and would probably be knee length without a bump.

Surprise engagement today -

Saying someone should consider a more modest fashion does not mean anyone is calling for Victorian times or burkas or anything else of that nature.

Seriously ladies how far has displaying the wares for all to see gotten you? That is supposed to be great strides for women? Walking around in micro minis and tops with everything on display?

It always cracks me up that women think they have proven something because they can do this...what has it gained you?

As for the outfits bein' short or not, for me it depends on the type of clothes, some look nice with knee showing, while others a bit of lengh to cover the knees would be better. It all lies in the clothes, their cut, color and type.
So for my taste, I think this white coat (with black dress) have a nice lengh.

Just saw today's outfit, it is really the same coat as Mary once used, and I really love it!!! I always loved dark blue coats and I like the black sparkly sidelines throughout the coat.
Everything is nice on her, earrings, hair, hat, tights, but there's is one thing that I don't like, is the shoes! She has been wearing them all the time since this year as begun. If she used a more delicate and probably in dark blue color it would be better.
If she could be more innovate with her shoes...

I love the white coat and dress. However, the dark outfit today is dull and boring.

Giving up she's pregnant I would assume she opts for the most comfortable shoes, and those may do. I think at some point one just care to be comfy and want to wear shoes that won't hurt feet. Maybe she tried a few different options and those are simply the most comfortable shoes she found?

I've seen Kate wearing quite a bit of different shoes before her pregnancy, that is being more innovate, no?

Yes you have a point there, she probably tried a few before and still feels more comfortable with those black shoes, but when I said more innovate I was refering during pregnancy, not before (I know her shoes pre-pregnancy as I made a collection of pictures of her wardrobe since her engagement to William [posted on the Old fashion Thread]).
I'm not trying to be rude or anything, its just that I would love to see her in a diferent pair of shoes, that's all.

Perhaps Catherine is following the Queen's lead on this issue.
