  1. Well.....from the back Kate looks ok, but from the sideways position she looks like a board. This thinness is not nice anymore. Liv

  5. for some reason, this outfit screams Unappropriate for me. its like, she tried to be sexy and all, but needs to be demure, and so on and so on, I'm pretty sure there a whole bunch of selection for her, but then..she picked this. ah, but well maybe its just me.

  6. i mean, she could have just a knee length dress and that would be ok.

    1. I love that she wears a maxi dress. We are on our way into the season of a lot of maxi dresses and why not embrace changes. It's so boring when they use the same thing all the time so yes to mini( not to short though), midi and maxi dresses.

  7. This is a nice color on Catherine, and I like that she is experimenting with different silhouettes and design features. That being said, I don't think the straight vertical lines on the bodice are doing her any favors.

    It is always nice to see her out working and smiling though!

  8. Meeting with young people from the two countries they are going to visit is an excellent and original way of preparing the journey.

  9. Kate is groomed perfectly, however there is no smile in the eyes, again the stiff grin, I wonder if she is at ease at all or is anxious and depressed.
    On the outfit, I totally love how the dress color is a great match with her engagement ring 'Big Blue', magnificent.

  10. I do not like this dress at all. Maybe without that central transparent part it would be better. Now it looks kind of untidy.

  11. She looks good, the dress is not bad but she is soooo skinny! Unfortunatly i dont see her as trendsetter, i see Charlotte Casiraghi or Queen Maxima or CP Mary more influencial, but is my opinion

  12. Love the colour ! Love the design ! Just not too keen on the length ! It might have been a little more effective at knee length. Other wise I think the DOC is looking stunning !
