Count me in as well with your opinions, ladies, that would have looked sublime.

Yup! I think her "stylist" for the wedding missed BIG with her hair. Hair/tiara management is an art .... Check with Queen Silvia for the best advice :)

Oh my! Tonight Kate had oodles of "Princess Power". Very regal and the best I've ever seen her.

An up do, finally! Catherine looks beautiful this evening and the colour of that dress is stunning. She looks suitably regal, and I would like to own her clutch bag, please. Thank you.

She looks amazing! The color is gorgeous, and the lace details are beautiful. Her hairstyle is also wonderful! One of her best looks yet!

Also it is SO NICE to see an appearance where we're all in agreement that she knocked it out of the park :)

10 out of 10!!!!!!!

Radiant! VERY beautiful indeed and it seems what many people have been waiting for for ages!! LOL!
Now, without wishing to stir up the debate about hairstyles etc, it's a real treat to see her hair styled like that and such a surprise that I think it's nice once in a while to do it.

And the "hair brigade" duly notes her beautiful updo! Obviously, Kate is also taking note of how a flattering updo complements her pretty face and a lovely evening look.

I love the hair and it looks great on her. Why she hasn't worn in this way before is beyond me. It really suits her you can see her face and her lovely earrings. Love the strong colour of the dress. I think it's the best I have seen her! Yeah for Kate, I hope she wears her hair like this again because she really wears it well.

Catherine looks simply exquisite in the blue gown. The color suits her, and the up-do and earrings complete the looks quite nicely. I love the lace detailing in the back. The only minus for me is her choice of footwear (whatever was visible of it). She does look radiant, regal and sophisticated; everything a princess ought to be when going out on the town for a public engagement.

Isn't that something that Dazzling suggested this dress for her months ago??!!
Finally, a great hairdo showing off her pretty face!
Front of gown a little spare for me and do agree that a woman with slightly more, weight and bust, would look better. More draping and padding for Kate would have improved her look.
