I love the photo of her in sprinting pose. She looks totally natural and a nice look.

I love the color and the top, not crazy about the pants (whatever you want to call them).

Same.

That length of pants, (are they culottes?), has been around for awhile now and I keep waiting for the trend to pass. They dont flatter anyone. Kate is tall with long, slim legs and IMO its still not a good look.

I feel like that cut and material would look amazing if the length was extended down to make wide - ish leg trousers.

Disappointed. I usually adore her casual sporty looks. This was a miss.

The color is great but the culottes are a no. Proportions totally wrong.

And the fitted blazer with the sporty look wasn't good either.

It's a total disaster. Why did I want such a serious jacket if I had very cheap clothes? Fatal appearance in general and the ufff hairstyle ... lshe ooks pretty bad.

Catherine looks great. The outfit is great for such an engagement - comfortable for sports but still smart.

I liked the overall look of the cullotts and the colour really looked good on her. I also like that her hair was pretty but appropriately tied back for such a sporting engagement.

However, she ran into trouble with her mix of cheap and not. She got the no visible sock look down well but instead of her M&S trainers looking trendy, the calibre of the rest of her ensemble highlighted that they were cheap rather than harmonising.

Her jacket was just all wrong for cullottes. A looser, nor fashion forward jacket would have clinched the look but her tailored jacket screamed Vogue Country Casual.

Love the greens, love the print ...not sure on the dress style yet.

This is a mixed bag to me. I think the coat is okay but that shade of green is not my favorite. The print of the dress is lovely but not sure about the style of the dress. I will have to see it on Kate. The big problem is I don't think the two pieces look good together. The coat has more blue to the color while the dress has more yellowish tones. To me, they seem to clash. I absolutely hate the padded headband.

I think it's a perfect look- except for the headband.
I just really dislike those and hope the trend ends soon.

I love that green outfit on Catherine. You need a nice slim shape to pull that style off perfectly and she actually has that. I also am not a huge fan of the old 40s head bands but I can understand if they don't wear a hat as this type of band keeps the long hair from blowing into face...which always looks lousy. Over all, Catherine looks classic and well thought-out for the occasion. Cheers to her.

The Duchess of Cambridge's Daytime Fashion Part 28: January 2020 -

This is a picture of the dress that was underneath the coat:

https://twitter.com/packhamgown/stat...113884673?s=21

Unfortunately I find the pattern too busy, and I dont think its particularly good on Catherine. The coat is nice.

The dress is Alessandra Rich, and the coat is Catherine Walker.

awful. I had to look twice. Neither do I like the style, nor the pattern of the dress. The green is... somewhat o-kay. But there are better greens, even in Ireland.

Though March is a traditionally green month in Eire, I'm not overly mad about the print on the dress but I understand the sentiment of wearing green.

I LOVE that dress fabric but not the style of the dress (another 1970s rehash). The coat is beautiful - very elegant cut & no fussy add-ons.

Having now seen the dress, I don't particularly care for the style but it seems to be typical Kate and not necessarily in a good way. Unlike a lot of you, I like the print and the color of the dress. I think that fabric in a more sheath or pencil style dress would be better. I still don't care for the color of the coat.
