I like the dress, black and white go well together. Her shoes and clutch bag are nice as well. Overall, I think this is one of my favourite outfits from Catherine this year (so far).

Too short but nice combination.
I know that everyone is saying that its Topshop but when you look at the Topshop dropped waistband, I just dont see how it could be.

Also, just seen a pix of Catherine with JKRowling and JKR is wearing ..... white with black dots!

I love the polka dots dress! I don´t mind if it´s too short. She´s still young and has the legs to wear it.
She looks lovely!

I love the dress as I love polka dots and I am glad it's from Topshop, though I do hate that shop, but at least it's affordable for her fans. It goes well with the jacket and shoes.

I love her hair and I want it on my head right now! She is looking much fuller these days, particularly around her face. It's healthy.

Catherine may have altered it herself, or had someone alter it for her. That dress is of course, sold out. Might pop into my local topshop and see if I can get it.

I LOVE this Polka dot dress, I always liked cute dresses with pregnant women, makes them look younger, cute and adorable! The Jacket, shoes and the bag goes well with the dress, you can never go wrong with Black&White.

Isn't that Jacket the one she wore the day after their wedding with the blue dress? It looks the same.

It has been an amazing week for Catherine, the upcoming summer weather allowed Catherine to wear free-coat styles, dresses suits her most while she's pregnant.

Well I´m also not totally conviced but probably it is a topshop dress. Good choice for a dress which she will just be wearing for some months.

JK Rowling´s dress is by Nina Ricci

Wow, that is the firt time, where she is really looking "heavy pregnant". Is it the colour?
Funny - or a drama (???) - that she was nearly wearing the same as JKRowling, hihi, dots on dots.

Cute polka dot dress today - and nice combo with the jacket. Cause of the weight issue of the fabric the dress did appear quite short at times. But i do like todays look on Kate - i'd say she maybe got the Topshop dress altered slightly and it seems an appropiate choice considering it was slightly more informal environment with children from their charities. She did i thought look tired - its been a long week of engagements and speeches for her

I'm feeling a need to comment on the Paternity fashion of the Duke of Cambridge.
We all know he owns this one style of navy suit and wears somewhere south of a dozen ties. Daddies to be sometimes also go through transitions while expecting.
From this back view it seems William needs to see his tailor: http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2013/...1_964x1170.jpg
I kvetched the other day about the fit of the Duchess' pale blue dress. Well here's some sauce for the gander as well! The fit of those trousers!

I said it was altered! Still too short for my liking though, the colours are good and I expect the weather was reasonable enough to pull out a dress.

One thing that I dislike is the hard, heavy make-up she's wearing. Too much black eye-liner on her eyes, I know she likes it that way because she wears it like that many times, but a softer and lighter make-up would definately suit her better.

Agreed - and I am beginning to suspect the ill fit is because the fabric has worn to the point where it bags. Sheeesh.
