Neither Mrs. Kennedy nor Ms. Hepburn had long hair.

Well Ms Hepburn certainly did in this shot. It is from the movie Charade and she almost wore it up in the prevailing fashion. And in this movie as you can see the pillbox reigned supreme.

Those are all pretty large hats, almost the same size Kate wore but they suited Audrey's face a lot better I think and she had the right hair for it as well.
I loved Princess Haya's ultra-chic appearance at Ascot last year. Reminded me so much of Audrey at the time.
I think Kate would've benefited immensely from an updo with her pillbox.

:previous: Wow! Princess Haya takes the medal for that outing. She seems to have harked back to the 60's for that look and she owns it. Perfect hair, perfect hat and perfect placement of the hat.

So yes I agree, Catherine would have definitely beneifted fom and updo.

The dress is 390.

The Duchess looks lovely but tied hair would be more comfortable, especially while holding a baby.....

I love the dress and it suits her just well!:flowers:

The dress is quite pretty and young, great for Kate. She looked lovely in it.

I love Tory Burch's designs. This is a great dress on Catherine, she looks wonderful.

Frelinghighness 04-09-2014 09:15 AM

She looks great, would love the dress for an upcoming event myself but of course it is sold out.
Agree that tied back hair would have looked better.

Hope that she wears more form Troy Brunch because it has great summer dresses pale colours...some flowers...hope she has some more for this trip..

Catherine is looking nice and elegant, her outfit looks to be perfect for a spring/summer's day.

Daria_S 04-09-2014 12:47 PM

Very nice look for Kate. My only problem is that the pattern is a bit on the busy side.

Erin9 04-09-2014 01:01 PM

Love the dress!

Elly C 04-09-2014 04:29 PM

This looks such a comfortable dress and very stylish. Very appropriate for the occasion.

Lenora 04-09-2014 04:46 PM

Everything is fine except for too high heels, they are inapproppriate for the occasion.

Pranter 04-09-2014 07:04 PM

Love the dress...looks very comfortable.

In the 60s my grandmother was the cook at the local parish. She wore uniforms. In this color. With huge patch pockets (it was the 60s). I am having flashbacks. :eek:
I will admit grams' polyester version lacked the kicky vented pleats in back and that grams wore nursing shoes. Grams waist was also bigger and her hair was short and glued in place once a week at the hairdresser, next door. I just hope I do not have nightmares tonight. All fashion is local. :lol:
The walkabout is precious. It always is with these two. They do touch people's spirit.

julliette 04-09-2014 07:48 PM

I like the Tory Burch dress but the high heels were not appropriate for this event.


For today, she's wearing a McQueen coat and a ponytail.

I'd say it is a costumized version of this, but in blue and a collar.

Another version though the colour still looks different.

You know, I didn't quite get the constant calls for lower hemlines for Kate, but now that she's wearing her hemlines a little lower, I do have to admit... it looks more elegant and it suits her.
