No, those dresses are certainly not trashy. In fact I find the two Chanel dresses simply gorgeous (and I'm not a huge fan of Chanel's latest collections)! Sadly I have to agree with Al_Bina - I don't think Kate could pull them off. Kate is pretty and fine, but it needs tons of charism/personality and a great hairstyle/make up to pull such dresses off.

I would love it if she would ever wear stuff like this

The first one is McQueen, the second and third are Chanel. The fourth is a vintage Lacroix dress and the last ones are Miu Miu.
To me, when "young girl" is used, it references a 13-14 year old, not an elderly teenager.

I like all your samples. The first one is gossamer lovely. The second is highly suitable to Kate. Notice that the fourth one, the vintage Lacroix, is modeled by a woman who looks mid-30s to 40. It is astoundingly lovely. The others are the type of clothing I wear to work.

Kate needs to get on the ball!!!!!!!!

Not even the Lacroix Cate Blanchett is wearing? Because if there ever was a dress that screamed royalty, it's that one. That, and almost every other Cate has ever worn.

Like those choices. That second dress and fourth gown would especially look terrific on Kate. I love the color and style on the dress and could just imagine her wearing diamonds and sapphires (and maybe a tiara?) with the latter.

I think Catherine needs to cut three or four inches off her hair and get it out of her face. She isn't 18-years-old any more and needs a more sophisticated hair style in my opinion.

Yes, I can see Kate with a shorter hairstyle like Princess Letizia who looks really lovely with her new look.

I think the "hair" question is more a question of style rather than length. There is a wonderful photo last week of Angelina Jolie with hair down on the Red Carpet. She looked elegant and chic having managed to style it off her face. Unfortunately Catherine still uses hers as a curtain to hide behind.

With this length hair, she could do so many versatile things with updos and semi- updos (wedding). I'd love to see some variation.

Such a shame the length over powers her at times, plus she has the distracting habit of always running her fingers through it.

I think a few inches off the length would look good if Kate is going to keep it in her normal style; otherwise updos and half-updos would look marvelous with her current length. Long hair is lovely when it's styled in a versatile manner rather than constantly hanging like a curtain with curled ends. I really want to see her step it up a notch for more formal occasions when she wears an evening gown that deserves a more sophisticated look. You need to have a difference between daytime-occasion hair and formal-occasion hair.

Jenny Packham cruise 2012 collection

Evening dress - Color is soft, embellishments are placed lovely and the belt is soft showing off the waist, a lovely dress for Kate that has cap sleeves that she can pull off well. This would look great on her with diamond earrings & hair pulled up.
Halter neck dress - The detailing around the waist and hips is for someone with Kates body shape. This would look great on her but would prefer it in another color.
Short dress - Very pretty and very spring/summery, perfect with a pendent, studs and a nice brooch. I love the color but not sure if Kate is confident enough to pull such a strong color off.

The Jenny Packhman evening dress looks EXACTLY like something the Duchess of Cambridge would wear, great scouting, you should be a stylist, dazzling (or maybe you already are?)!

Nice suggestions from the Daily Mail, but the Jaeger dress they chose for the formal dinner is too boxy. It's shapeless.

The first Jenny Peckham is really pretty, but I feel like it wouldn't translate as nice outside.
My suggestions:

(Rochas) ImageShack® - Online Photo and Video Hosting
(Yves Saint Laurent) ImageShack® - Online Photo and Video Hosting

Just some suggestions, some of them may be a little too flashy, but the style is nice.

I absolutely adore the Elie Saab HC SS 11. It's so rich in color and fabrics. It's heaven.


Just something to drool over

Those are so not Kate looks I hope she doesn't stumble and use their suggestions. That evening dress is just hideous and shapeless.

Empress Merel - I really like the Elie Saab suggestions.

Yawn. Kate will probably recycle outfits she already has, which is fine as there won't be any photos.

I like all those choices, with the exception of those deep plunging necklines. I don't see why she wouldn't wear a color like the short dress since she wore an almost similar color in Canada, the infamous dress at the airport that kept whipping up in the wind. I actually like that bright aqua blue color of the gown, too, and she also wore a similar color to the Boodles Boxing Ball before her marriage:

And maybe for Christmas Day church, Kate will wear her red coat that was worn to the UNICEF visit in Denmark. I don't care if it's recycled; it was only worn once, it's a great color for her and certainly festive, and I hope to see a wonderful hat accompanying it.

Jenny Packham Spring 2012

Mint evening dress - A shade I would love to see on Kate, the embellishment is simple. She could pull the simplicity off easily. Th sonly change is that I would not have such a low opening.
Dress - I quite like the work on this dress but I would change the style and color.

Jenny Packham Fall 2012

Skirt & top - The whole look matched with a boxy black/nude jacket or even a coat would look really pretty.
Black evening dress - With her slim figure, Kate would look great in this. The detailing at the bottom is quite couture like.
Blush dress - The combination of the two fabrics is unusual. It would give her a taller look. Embellishments on the shoulders is nice. Would be great with hair pulled all up.
Grey dress - Pretty but without the silk panels on the side. The embellishment sleeves are nice and I actually like the red belt. If Kate wanted something a bit more daring then this is a nice choice.

Erdem Spring 2012

Printed dress - Great cut, print & colors. This is a perfect spring/summer dress matched with a jacket or even a coat. I don't mind seeing this in Autumn as well. This is a dress which would also look great with a nice hat.

Erdem Pre Fall 2012

Printed dress - Lovely print. Id like to see this matched with a jacket in a similar shade of orange as the print or a white. Kate can get away with color easily.

Jonathan Saunders Spring 2012

Printed dress - Print and color are amazing. Such dress style/cut would look great on her.
