Re: Duchess Kate Holds Reception at Buckingham Palace

I'd rather see her dressed on the conservative side since she is a wife and a mother, then, to see her dressed like a hootchie and then, boy, people would go to town on her. ROFL

I think sapphire blue is her best color.

Kate's Erdem earrings - blue crystal and pearl - retailed at 310 pounds, about $400,  but no longer available

 

interesting to me that Kate's outfits for yesterday - Catherine Walker coat and Jenny Packham sapphire gown - were both in her closet, worn previously - but she refreshed them with accessories, particularly the ruby and Erdem earrings.

Re: Duchess Kate Holds Reception at Buckingham Palace

  I have never been a big fan of the Royals.I did like Diana.I felt that she was very compassionate & relatable. Kate reminds me of Diana. She appears to be real & not a caricature of what's expected of her.

   Kate always dresses impeccably. She looks beautiful in the royal blue gown. But I do think it's a bit to closed up.A bit of a lower neckline & a shorter sleeve would look just as dignified & classy.

I saw this dress in a video on Instagram and it was even more beautiful in the video than it is in pictures!

Kate is an attractive woman but her choice in dresses and other clothes needs help desperately.  One day she will be Queen Consort and I hope someone assists her with her wardrobe.  She is a young woman and always selects clothes for a 90 year old woman.

Would you prefer she wear the wide open V split down to the waist with half her boobage hanging out that is so popular right now with all the female celebrities from Lalaland?
