Catherine was very elegant at the Festival of Remembrance.

Yeah, that's the point! I know Kate isn't busty at all, but that dress made her look as if she were busty! She is very thin and can pull off better silhouttes

Oh, that's really pretty and elegant! The guy next to Kate doesn't look half bad either...

Here's one Alexander McQueen gown we can all hope Catherine NEVER wears:

Rooney Mara in Alexander McQueen at the 7th Annual Governors Awards | Tom & Lorenzo Fabulous & Opinionated

(not really OT, but this gown gave me a laugh today)

I'd like to see the top as a jacket. Perhaps with white or matching red trousers. A bit excentric but not too much over the top. Not something for the Dutchess though, not her style.

It's a lovely dress!

Love that dress. Divine, especially the color. Gorgeous, Elegant, and regal. Perfect for a princess! Or Duchess!

I don't like the dress, I think it is dowdy.


The hairstyle is okay.

Lovely dress but the belt isn't very attractive. Like her hairstyle.

The fabric looks interesting, however the dress is nothing special in my opinion. There are hundreds of dresses out there just like it. I do think Catherine looks pretty.

I think she look smashing! Great color for her, love the textured material and the style is classical elegance...and appears to fit her very well!

Sorry, but this is in my bottom ten all time. It is hard for anything to make Kate's derriere look large. This does. There is an awkward tulip shape thing happening with the bottom half.
It's the right color, nice length, appropriate and the fabric is gorgeous. But it's dull and not flattering. JMO.

Exactly my thoughts. Dull and not flattering is a great way to describe it. The fabric, as you stated, is gorgeous.

It's a classic A line dress....it doesn't even show her behind. I don't see how it can make her look too big....most of her dresses are A lines....

The dress is attractive. It is a great color. The belt and shoes match.

IMO, it is a great look that could have been polished a bit more without the 'Shirley Temple curls'.

Tulip-shaped. That was the word I was looking for to describe the 'full sail' look in the wind, and yes, it is an awkward shape.

But with the reappearance of the "sausage curls" the only thing missing was the four-inch wide sash and obligatory bows.

We called them 'boings'.
