I'm not fond of the look; that embroidery looks sort of cheap. The dress itself seems more suitable for spring than for January.
But she is looking well.

The pockets under the breast are miss-placed IMO. Plus, the black tights against a navy dress doesn't work.

I totally agree. This look is a total miss IMO. Not only is the embroidery ugly but if you are going to an event for children you don't wear a dress that short. She can't bend over without danger of flashing the kids. I am beginning to think Catherine has secretly joined the Kardashian clan.

Really not liking this look. The embroidery on the dress is quite ugly, and the style doesn't do anything for Catherine. I have a feeling the dark tights were chosen to make sure nothing is seen if she does bend a little too far.

I get the need for the tights. I just think that navy tights would have been a choice.

Ok, this joins the very short list of ugly things Kate has worn! The color! The embroidery! Ghastly!

I honestly couldn't tell that the dress was navy. Blame my poor eyesight there , but in that case, yes, the tights that were the exact same color as the dress would have done better.

'Ghastly' indeed. I'm sorry, but I hope this dress is thrown in the farthest recesses of a closet, like the navy blue one with white collar the Duchess of Cornwall pulls out on some occasions.

I like it. I think the patterned tweed adds interest and the fact that the navy material is from a heritage wool company is even better.

I would have preferred navy shoes and tights rather than black but she looked lovely.

I agree with most posters, the Madderson London dress is too short, the embroidery is ugly, 450 GBP for this?? Combining a navy dress with black tights, omg.

I have to agree with other posters that this is one of the worst outfits Kate has worn. Interesting that it is currently still available to buy when normally anything she wears usually sells out within seconds.

I don't think it's that bad but the length could have been longer. Kate looks good though.

I think this dress is really cute. It has a very 60's Mod vibe to it- right off the Carnaby Street racks.

I agree that it can have to do with it not looking good.. But we have to remember it's maternity wear. Not everyone can wear it

I'm not understanding all the shock and horror at this dress. I liked it's quirk.

Tells you something doesn't it?
I'm surprised a website would crash for that outfit!
