Yes I know that there is a nude slip but you can see clearly the outline of her bra including the straps in the pictures from The Daily Mail due to all the flashlight. No doubt about that.

Due to flash photography Kate's underwear is visible, very classy. As usual flying hair and bad posture, nothing new here.

Wow that really is bad!
Gala implied something stylish.

I knew there would be fire and brimstone here after I saw the look for tonight. All I have to say is that for those of you kvetch all the time about how she dresses in too old a style - that ain't a problem tonight.

Calm down and look at the pics on the DM which show the full slip/lining.

She's a very attractive pregnant Duchess in an edgy dress. She looks good and healthy, and from the pictures, she seems to know it.
Some of you may not like the style and that's your right. The Duchess is feeling it though. Go girl!

I'll bet all of those who were there thought she looked wonderful. Pretty face, pretty hair, pretty figure, pretty dress... They weren't judging her by photographs, which may or may not represent her appearance accurately.

Yep. Plus it's happened to quite a few of the royal ladies. I used to think this was easily controllable, but it seems to be a common problem for celebs and royals. Kate's dress has a pretty thick lining, so I'm sure she assumed it could stand up to the flash.

But style is subjective. I've always liked Oscar de la Renta's take:

Kate looks happy and healthy which is wonderful to see. In the pictures taken indoors the dress seems nice enough. However in the pictures taken in the flash you can see far too much! Especially in the third picture quoted above.

The dress is quite funny and doesn't suit her well, it makes Kate's face look plump.

Well, she is pregnant and I hope that choice is temporary.

My thoughts exactly. This dress would undoubtedly divide opinion partly because it's so different. I need to remind myself of some of the outfits she wore the in the early months of her previous maternity, but I 'm sensing a more confident Catherine who despite the horrid sickness, is looking pretty amazing.

Look at Emblem Flare Dress — Shoptiques. It's the under-liner showing through on the bodice - not a white bra. LOL.

I'm so glad Kate is breaking the "no black in the evening unless in mourning" rule that the BRF followed through the 90's. Di broke the rule and was pilloried. Time for the rule to die.

It's definitely not my cup of tea, but it looks wayyyyy better in natural or semi-natural light.

No on so many levels! I don't like the black and white zebra stripy panels. I don't like that I can see her bra. Usually love Temperly, but this? No. What will T and L say?

It is a slip, you can see that clearly especially in the photos wear she's moving but don't tell people that they are convince that it a bra.

That white slip look exactly like the white slip from her other black lace Temperley dress

I'm not a fan of this dress. I can't find one positive thing to say about it. However, her smile is absolutely beautiful.

Same here. It's the first time Catherine has worn an evening dress that I did not like at all.

You are absolutely correct Marty, it just doesn't look quite right. And Dazzling, the difference between the outside photos show tanned arms and neck and the rest is sort glaring white. Worse, the stretch of white lining over the bust has somewhat dire consequences.

DoM, a bit harsh, and yet I can't say I actually disagree with you. But either way, Catherine is yet another victim of flash photography. Marty, that is a very astute observation and you just hit the nail on the head. It really does trend toward BDSM . . . which, I feel certain, was not the "look" she was aiming for!

I was looking for something along the lines of a stylish cocktail dress at the very least. But that? No way.

Jack, I think this dress falls into the "Art" rather than "Fashion" folio. It does not do her any favours and all the raves have been mainly about "cutting edge" and her "being brave and taking risks", all of which point firmly to "Art".

So, sorry soapstar, this dress was definitely not what Oscar de la Renta was talking about! He loved the female form and loved to dress it, and this gown is definitely "Fashion" as Catherine does not seem to have settled on her own particular "Style">

^I totally disagree. For one, I don't think this dress is that fashionable. But more importantly, style is about what you like, not about what others like. This is what I believe Oscar was saying. Don't dress for others, dress for yourself- wear what makes you feel good/beautiful. Which is something I think Kate does.

Thanks to you and AdmirerUS for pointing this out. I thought it was her bra, but looking at other photos, you can see that it's the beige slip under the dress. In these two photos you can see it's the lining.

Not really a fan of this dress. I believe she's done better before.
