I doubt the children cared or gave any thought to what she was wearing.

The kids thought she was a princess from frozen. Probably looking around for Olaf and a reindeer

I have to admit I hadn't thought about it. But now that you mention it, you are right.

Agreed, she does not seem to have grasped the point of the exercise, that is to say, meet and greet. And for that she needs to be seen! The fact is, that she is dressing for herself instead of for the occasion. Disappearing into a sea of black and merging with the staff is certainly not the 'ideal' when meeting children.

I like the coat. But not for this engagement because for kids it's just boring. Actually, anyone wanting to catch a glimpse of her (which is why they are there) would be hard pressed to pick her out of a sea of black. The mission of the Duke and Duchess was spelt out quite clearly and it is all about being seen and being seen to be there!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit the United States of America

As to the length of her coats and dresses, they are as they always are, too short. I do not understand why she gets a free pass when she wears things like this. They are fine when she stands in front of a mirror, very elegant, on trend, etc. but, unlike most people, she is going to be sitting, standing, moving around, raising her arms or bending over or crouching, all things that alter the line, length and style of an ensemble. Most of us would not do much of that but if we did we would not have the cameras of the world with their telescopic lenses trained on our every breath.

I realize that there are differing opinions regarding how long Kate's dresses and coats are, but I think the vast majority of people looking at her don't really think about it one way or another. Personally, I think she generally wears things in lengths that are flattering to her. But this mention of a "free pass" makes me laugh. Kate's a grown woman, she dresses appropriately (I mean, even considering that some find the dresses a bit short, they're hardly risqué) - is there some branch of the fashion police that's supposed to call her in and tell her to alter her hemlines just because some don't find them to be perfect at every angle?

UGH. More black and the coat she wore tonight didn't do a thing for her. Why not a pop of crimson or green or even sapphire blue???? I don't expect her to follow in her late mother-in-law's footsteps, but this is drab and boring.

The black coat by GOAT is way too short. Kate looks like she is in mourning with all the black and a pop of color while visiting children wouldn't hurt.

Basketball outfit - I would've assumed that Kate must of roasted wearing that coat indoors though that looks was quite pretty.

Jeans for the basket ball are fine, but are they really appropriate for a reception at the British Counsel General's?

I liked the heels and skinny pants for the basket (even though unusual) but the coat is simply hideous... It does nothing fo her... It is totally a miss for me... Hope to see a better piece today...

I quite agree with you, all this black and gray is not making her look like she wants to be seen by the public, and the coat at the basketball game was ugly, doesn't any one in the family/friends/court help her with her choices of clothing for this trip? So far this is, clothing only, been dull and boring. If she is perhaps thinking that black clothes is the chic thing to do, she is way off base for her position as this is where she needs and must be seen. She is there to support her charities and should realize that many people want to see her and the media is around her all the time, so use some color and be seen.

A perfect choice for the basket ball game imo . Thought William was the one who was a little too casual.

It's perfect, if a bit plaid on Will's part for what a guy wears to a Nets game. Staff, seated behind W and C went rolled up shirt sleeves too. Those arenas are often warm and court side it's chaotic with the squeaking of shoes, bodies crashing and sweat flying. It makes you wonder why people pay more to sit on the floor?

How does one dress for a game of basketball? He looked fine and fit right in, those in suits and jackets look out of place. Been to many basketballs games, and most people are in jeans, shirts and sweater and sneakers.....

I LOVE that she went for a pink coat. Personally, I prefer a tailored coat but considering she's pregnant, it makes sense. I really like this choice.

Does anyone else find William sexy with his collar unbuttoned?

I disliked what she wore for the NBA game.
Love today's outfit.
That bright pink is divine and she rocks it!
My only ? - why didn't she wear the pink ensemble yesterday, and the black today? Would have been more event - appropriate , IMO.
