September 11, 2012 - Kate is wearing a kimono-style pink dress with an orchid pattern by Jenny Packham.

Im not crazy about the dress but the cut seems to be quite nice. The print and color works for the visit IMO.

Nice. Not one of her best, but fresh and sweet. I think is also a kind of compliment to Far East.

Looks like something Sophie could pull off, I get the point but again Catherine is dressing old.

It is a lovely dress but the delicate colour and pattern isn't quite working for her in the photographs I have seen so far. I do like the kimono style however and I'm sure the dress will be appreciated by her hosts.

mary stuart 09-11-2012 05:36 AM

i like the dress but i think it should have been in a diffent colour like an amethyst to bring out the flowers and also to go with her hair

Archduchess Zelia 09-11-2012 05:36 AM

It's not a favourite of mine, but it's not horrible. It's alright.
I love her hair, it curls very beautifully.

fandesacs2003 09-11-2012 05:49 AM

New shoes!!! LK Bennett also??

biboquinhas 09-11-2012 06:17 AM

I don't like the dress, not modern...but it suits the ocassion! Her face seams fuller...

Don't love it, don't hate it. It's very appropriate given the location and the fact that they were there to see an orchid named after Diana. The hair's the star IMO, from the side it's even more beautiful than usual.

Not one of my favourite looks on Kate - the idea of the orchid print is lovely and a nice touch but it is the rest of the dress that fails for me. It looks heavy in a way and im not keen on the shape of it on Kate

Yes, it is L.K.Bennett for the shoes and for her purse.

The kimono style, the color and cut are great. However, I would have absolutely would have loved the look if it did not have the floral print. I don't think the floral print was necessary. Love the hair and the shoes. She looks beautiful.

After flying so many hours, she looks tired, but elegant and the colours of the dress could not have been chosen better to freshen up her complexion.
The cut of the dress is beautiful but can only fit thin or not too curvy tall women like the duchess. The dress was picked to please her guests and I am sure it did. I think the way she dresses is thought fistly minding her position of a royal representing the UK, secondly to compliment the guests / occasion and thirdly what looks good on her. This balance is not easy and has been accomplished so far. you have to be very unselfish to not to pick up clothes that would only enhance your beauty.

Looks like the entire bodice is padded.

miche 09-11-2012 09:31 AM

Good for her if it was :ermm:

(Are comments on female body necessary?)

Mirabel 09-11-2012 09:42 AM

I like the dress, it's a nod to the host country without being over the top.

(Also it's not so extreme that she can't wear it again).

Dman 09-11-2012 09:47 AM

I think she looked very beautiful.
