Also, I'm loving the women who you can hear talking in the background talking about how they love her shoes and commenting on her wearing pantyhose.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the Southern Hemisphere is how heading into autumn, not spring.

Catherine looks so elegant in the blue coat. The lowered hemlines are not an issue for me. They make her look just a tad more sophisticated than usual. I will say that her knee-length hemlines are fine too.

While the color is pretty, I think she looks best in strong jewel colors. The pocket flaps make the coat look too bulky with the belt and is too overwhelming for her slender frame. And those deep pockets have never been an attractive look for me since the style reminds me of a house dress or apron. The lowered hemline looks great and it's nice to see her hair pulled back in a ponytail.

Yes! for the new hemlines which set off her proportions and legs better. Gorgeous coat the pockets are so large that they're not really patch pockets which I normally dislike. Lovely pleats, somehow accentuates her thinness though. Great that there is a new hairdo, hooray though I am holding my breath for a low chignon.

Yes, it's autumn here, and sunny and cold down here in the deep south.

She looks great in the black and white and the blue suit. And hey if she can rock the high heels--you go girl.

The look was very chic, indeed. I liked the colour and fit of the coat.

I think she looked very smart in the blue coat, and I liked her hairdo very much. I still have my fingers crossed for a chignon, but this is a definite improvement.

The new Alexander McQueen coat is beautiful. The color really flatters her. The fit is also very flattering and I love the pleats on the back. Finally hair pulled back, it makes such a big difference when its off her face.

And no platform shoes! Yay!
I like this fine tuning of her look. She looks more elegant with these little changes.

Catherine looked very elegant today and I loved her hair, a nice change for her. It showed off those beautiful blue sapphire and diamond earrings and her face, she is a very pretty lady now. Glad to see the hemlines a bit lower...

that was my thought as well, that the rumours on the queen suggesting lower hemlines to kate were actually true! ever since the start we have certainly seen her hemlines lower in all her skirts.

I have no issues with her wearing heels, her legs suit them well.

Sophie's worn this coat in a different colour I think!

I adore this McQueen coat on the Duchess.. the colour, the cut and the length are of exceptional elegance, and combined with a 'controlled' Hair style it produces an extremely chic image.

Bravo ! IMO one of the Duchesses best ever daytime looks...
