I would have to agree with the general feeling that the top and bottom don't match. The bodice is ill-styled and ill-fitted and just looks plain odd, and then we have Catherine's preferred high-waisted skirt.better pictures
Wind is not Kate's friend, we all know that.
Her posture is horrible and she still seems to be very insecure or nervous - at least via body language - about where to stand, go, wave, maybe that has to do with the bad posture, having to fight with the hair and skirt while pressing the clutch to the spot where the legs start, what looks unfortunate anyway.
The pleats on this gown are warring with the ultra-fussy top and just as you shake your head and wonder what sort of evening gown this is . . . out pops her leg from an extremely inelegant height and the effect is even odder still. Hello Catherine, for a minute I thought it wasn't you! Glad we cleared that up.
DoM, I think the points you mention are mannerisms rather than any sense of insecurity or nerves. Women that wear such slits in their evening gowns, showing as much leg as Catherine wont to do in almost all her evening gowns, do not suffer from lack of confidence.
