The bangs are a nice change. Kat looks tired but the colors she is wearing also doesn't help IMO. I Think if she wore brighter colors somehow she would look fresher but it's Autumn.

The Duchess of Cambridge's Daytime Fashion Part 15: July 2014 -

I like the outfit, however I'm not a fan of Catherine's hairstyle. I respectfully disagree that she looks tired, though I can understand why some might think that, but I think it's just her makeup giving off that impression because it's quite thick and heavy.

I would have to agree about the makeup. I wish it were a little lighter, then we could really tell if she was looking tired. As to the hairstyle, I like anything that softens the hard straight line of her hair hanging down each side of her face. Now we have a feathered fringe and I can only hope, feathering around the side of her face.

A couple of pictures of Catherine, taken in a car, travelling at speed.

And we have a new hairstyle (really?); issues about make-up, how tired she looks , - etc etc etc"

All of this based on a nanosecond. I think the least we can do is wait till the 17th when we can at least see her properly.

Well, that's what a fashion thread is about! Plus, Kate hasn't gone out for 2 months, I think it is really logical that royal fans would comment on her appearance and would scrutinize her... And let's be honest, it's all about fashion and hair when it comes to Kate...

I liked the hairstyle in the car photo, as Kate pulled her hair back there

I don't like it at all with her hair hanging down full scale, Kate looks very old and the coat dress, well, its windy in London, isnt it. What a surprise.

I like the dress. It is a tad too short but it's okay... I don't midn the bangs, even though I think they don't flatter her all and made her look even thinner... But at least they seem coiffed

(..) And her thick hair makes nothing but underline her thinness...(..)

Wow she looks healthy and happy. And for all of you who hate the bangs - it will grow out.

I almost think the bangs are at an odd length. Shorter would work better. However I like the look of less hair overall.

The dress....a hair short and a bit revealing at times...other than that the style itself looks very good on her.

I don't think she looks thinner now than she has before.

The dress is okay but god the bangs are awful. Either cut them short so they cover the entire forehead or not at all. Not this inbetween stage. She looks proper middle-aged.

I like the dress very elegant but yes the hair is awful should be cut closer.

The dress is fine and fits her well. The hair, oh the hair. If she is going to have bangs that length, she needs to cut at least 6 inches off the length so that it's not weighing her face down. If not, then she needs to trim her bangs a bit more. (I personally think that she needs to cut the length). It's nice that she is trying something different though.

Have to agree with the overall opinions that the dress is hit but that the hairstyle is not quite right.

Did not like anything about Kate's return to engagements today - the dress did nothing for her and the hair is awful. One of her worst appearances of her royals years i think
This is the stuff of fairytales

I think she looked fine nothing dramatic that is not her style simple and classic.
