After seeing more of the full length shots of Catherine, I still loathe the bow at the neck, but the overall effect of the lovely color and the floaty fabric paired with the huge flowers on the hat actually make for a very pretty English-summer type of look. If there were just a different neckline on the dress....

That color is great on Catherine. Love the skirt do not like the top at all. I could do without the flowers on that but that's just me.

Lovely color. Nice earrings. The skirt is beautiful but the top is so old-fashioned. It doesn't suit her at all.

No. The look is just too matronly.

Yes, the old fashioned top of dress harkens back to the 1950s. We wore that exact style back in high school. Witnessed quite a few on the NYC and LA fashion shows so I guess the high end lines will be bringing us more. Actually if they wanted to go back to that era, there were tons of more beautiful styles they could have copied. Upscale fashions now going back to more conservative, less cleavage and obvious trashy. But, I am sure that will all come back again soon when this fazes out.

Interesting. Didn’t realize this style was 1950s esque too. I think 1980s- based on what my mother wore and TV programs from that time. It seemed to be very in for professional young ladies then. And it is back again now.

Absolutely stunning! The colour is divine that hat is spectacular and I really adore the mix of modern and vintage.

This is my best dressed, possibly for the month of June.

I guess I am in the minority - but i love this look - very chic and elegant - with just the right amount of fancy for Ascot.

Much better today. The color is fantastic on her and the dress is beautifully made. What´s more, this dress gets to be fun while still being very much appropriate for the occasion.

Apart from the color, I don't like anything about this look.

It is better than some of the awful dresses other royal ladies are wearing, but that's about all I can say for it.

The color is pretty and the hat is nice, but too heavy, for lack of a better word, for that dress, which I do not care for at all. Very dowdy on her. Gorgeous earrings!

What a lovely look. Directly from a "my fair lady scene". Bravo your Highness. You nail at every point and you are at every inch already a queen.

Catherine looks as if she's raided the Downtown season one closet - I do like her skirt, though it looks very matronly when paired with the blouse. The colours are lovely on her though.

Elegant and very Ascot appropriate.

Sorry but the top is not retro it's just matronly. Especially the bow

The skirt of it is beautiful. Can tell its Saab.

I hate the flower under the rim hats but this is nicer then some.

Not one comment about the expensive foreign label to a major event. Oops.

Yes I really find this to be one of Catherine's best Ascot outfits. This Ellie Saab design is very lovely on her.

It's not unheard of for royal ladies including Catherine, to wear expensive foreign labels now and then to a major event. So since most posters here are aware of that, I would presume that no one felt it was necessary to comment.
