  1. A vibrant, sparkling and healthy look Duchess in a beautiful metallic pink silk dress. Shows her respect and goodwill wearing silk and earrings of the Indian Jeweler Anita Donge. Beautiful photo of the Duchess having her hand on Williams back. Dress to the T with the pair of sparkling shoes. Stunning!!

    1. There is a photo of Kate with her hand on William's back while they look at one of the exhibits. I thought I had seen it here also, but it appears on the Daily Mail Gallery. Very lovely photo of a rare PDA moment.

  3. Catherine looks radiant and lovely here. The dress suits her well and her shoes are fabulous! Earrings are also perfect.

    1. Yes and I love when she doesn't carry a purse. It allows her beauty and attire the chance to shine!

    2. Yes, what a difference it makes when she holds a glass of wine in her hands instead the omnipresent clutch. Best photo in this series.

  6. Even if her dress was a flattering color (which it is not - and Kate looks fabulous in many colors so why she goes back to this sickly pale yellow/cream again and again baffles me - it makes her look tired and sallow) and even if her dress was a flattering silhouette (which it is not - on her figure it hangs like a nightie, and does not convey the haute hippie look I assume she must imagine it does) she will never look good as long as she wears her hair to her waist in sausage curls with the sides twirled and pinned like a Sister Wife.

    1. Look on the Daily Mail. Eugenie looked like she was going to a funeral and hadn't bothered to comb her hair.

  9. Whilst I think she looks wonderful and she is the only person so far whose very slender frame could carry well this type of dress I still don't like the dress itself, for the same reason I mentioned when MM wore it: the pencil pleated top part isn't really flattering on anyone. It's just too much pleats that make the wearer's bust appear heavier than it is in reality and to top of it all it places the heaviness towards the hips, making the wearer's breasts look like they are dangling there all the way down to her waist like two giant pears. It was an unpleasant sight when MM wore the same dress or when Angelina Jolie wore a long version of the same style. Kate managed to avoid it just because she is not an expressedly busty type (I hope I formulated it politely enough :)
    Her hand on W's back is a rarely seen but very sweet moment indeed. I love it :)

  10. This dress is beautiful and shoes are gorgeous but maybe this length isn't very suitable for Kate, she looks better in shorter skirts. Anyway she is star of this evening a real beauty.
