Dress is nice, has nice color and details, looks god on Kate but it's nothing special. If you want to wear dress like that have a boobs, top part would be more full. As always loose hair cover half of her face and top part of the gown. (...)

I don't care much for the dress but it's good to see her up and about again.

Great color on her, but I didn't care for the bell sleeves. And, yes, an updo would have been lovely for the occasion, especially to show off those hoop earrings, and a larger necklace would have looked nice.

Mea culpa! I was wrong. Those were not patch pockets - and that was a PEPLUM. My bad. Apologies to all.

Having said that, a peplum that reads in photos as patch pockets, still has problems.

That's not Kate's fault, that's on the designer.

Surprised and happy to see her out and able to function in public with a huge ovation which would bring nausea to anyone!
Echoing Baroness, the dress "needs" jewelry and hair back would have exposed the earrings, or a least, a major necklace would have been a save.

The green SPOTY dress reminds me quite abit of the white dress worn to the private dinner in May or June 2012 as it had a dramatic slit and long selves - why Kate have another evening dress that as similair features. I did like that fact this dress was a lovely colour on Kate - agree she needed her hair even half up.
But im afraid it was another case of Alexander McQueen disappoints for me again
Also although she is pregnant barely 3 months yet - i'd hardly say this dress was maternity wear - its a normal dress not specifically designed for the pregnant Kate

Headline - to be designed by Sarah Burton

Text - "[Sarah Burton] hopes she will be assigned to design

Grrrrr! So the headline is a lie!

Access Hollywood is using Diana (of course) as the inspiration for the fashion video link in the article

I'm confused, the dress is a normal dress and not maternity wear. Like you she's barely pregnant and not showing, so why shouldn't my she wear normal clothes for as long as she can? It was never a dress designed for Catherine, nor a pregnant woman.

Sarah Burton commented last week that she 'hoped' to dress a pregnant Catherine in McQueen whether it would be a new maternity section, as I assume they don't have one, we don't know.

This board is calling it maternity wear fashion simply because she is pregnant despite the fact that she isn't showing.
