Having looked at Catherine's ensemble I have to admit I am in two minds about her headband. It has obviously been styled professionally and provides a deal is bulk behind the band. But I could see her wearing it to outdoor engagements rather than a Black Tie event.

To be honest, I thought the uncommonly intricate coils of her updo at the Cenotaph was sort of wasted when it would have rocked with her gorgeous earrings the night before.

However, I am think her headband would have looked too frivolous at the Cenotaph. Nevertheless, I think it is definitely a really lovely addition to her style file and would love to see it again.

On another topic, I loved to see some colour in the Royal Box. As HM has aged she has settled on black but that was not always the case. Catherine's dress was a timely reminder.

I thought Kate's dress was a dark navy but other argue it's black.

I adore what she is wearing ... did someone say the headband was childish? or was that another forum ? I stand corrected it was another ... but here I go headbands have again become he height of fashion I love that she is wearing one and the one she wore to the christening was gorgeous... the navy is still respectful otherwise she would not have worn the colour

I think she looked good this year. I’m on the fence about the headband but I think overall she pulls it off.

Usually DoC and McQueen are a great combo, but I'm not THAT into that dress. Something about the lace overlay and that beige/nude material is not speaking to me.

At least it's perfectly tailored. And she still looks stunning.

Not a fan of this dress and the back is awkward. I like the earrings though.

I agree the neckline is lovely. I wish this had been in a rich colour like midnight blue or emerald green.

I'm in the minority, but I think this is gorgeous on Catherine. The combination of the neckline, the fitted waist, the sweeping skirt, and even the beautiful black lace over a nude base are all spectacular on her. Blace lace over a nude lining has been around for decades so I don't see anything startling in that, and seeing her move in this dress is amazing.

Not really a fan, I normally like McQueen on her...but this one is just meh. Maybe a different color ...the nude lining perhaps gives it a too neglige effect? Bling might of helped...needed something for that neckline and something other than a dark earring for her ears.

It’s a nice dress, but I much prefer her other ‘black lace over nude lining’ dress:

The pattern of the lace on the new dress isn’t working for me. I agree that a different colour might have been better.

I had forgotten the earlier black lace over nude lining dress. Yes I prefer this too. I am not usually of the opinion she could be more frugal, but two very similar evening dresses where one would suffice?

Yes..I prefer the other one to this current one too!

Lace over a nude lining is always a bad choice to me. It just really cheapens an otherwise very expensive lace. It probably looks better in movement though.
