She does indeed. I suspect this dress was worn with the red coat and pill box hat when she arrived in NZ earlier this year.

Now this is a great example of when Catherine's simple style can look amazing - classic red dress and black accessories, plus a lovely hairstyle. What makes it for me is the material that the dress is made of - it looks luxurious and well structured and I'd like to see this dress again in a plum or purple colour!

Apparently not Catherine Walker, but KAtherine Hooker.

All royal reporters have twitted that the original info was wrong.

She looks lovely. One of her best.

So yet another new dress. I know she is pregnant, but surely she must have some dresses and coats (either from her first pregnancy or otherwise, notwithstanding the difference in seasons when she was pregnant with George) that she can continue to reuse these days? IMO, she really does need to use her expensive (and inexpensive) clothes a lot more than she does. It is just not the right message she is putting out.

Such is the world of the Duchess of Cambridge. When she recycles people complain and when she wears a new frock people complain.

That's life in the fish bowl

Catherine looks very elegant. The simplicity of the outfit actually enhances it. The hair looks great as well.

So true. And of course this dress is only "new" to us.

Nicely pulled together, the dress is nice. Not sure about the ponytail, though.

I think I read elsewhere on the threads that the red dress might possibly be the one worn under a coat and pillbox hat when she arrived in NZ. Just because we've not seen it before doesn't mean its recently purchased.

I love the simplicity of the outfit and also noticed that in the current events thread where articles about the visit are posted, there is more emphasis on the event itself and some other tidbits rather than a focus on what she wore.

This is what I think she aims for.

She looks nice. It's a simple and nice dress. Nothing special but nice. Good accessories too.

BTW, this dress cannot have been worn during the arrival to NZ. People probably thought this because the original info was that this dress was from Catherine Walker (designer of the NZ coat), which is wrong, as cepe said: it's by Katherine Hooker. Plus, this dress is far more structured than the one she wore to NZ, it wouldn't ever fly like the NZ one did.

I'm right there with a lot of you guys. The dress is fine, but the hair is not so good. I'm all for a nice ponytail, but this is not sleek at all.

Her dress is rather simple, but elegant and appropriate.

I thought it looked very smooth when she arrived. Perhaps being with children had an impact? Or the wind maybe?

Kate looks outstanding today, imo. She hit all the right notes. And the color is gorgeous!
