Kate Middleton in blush-pink Jenny Packham: gorgeous or meh?

fp_7442223_barm_prince_william_03_31

These are new photos of “Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge” and Prince William last night at a London fundraiser for ARK (Absolute Return for Kids). Will and Kate arrived in a blue Jaguar, and (I swear to God this is the text from People Magazine) “With William placing a guiding hand on his wife’s back, she giggled a little as she stopped on the purple-carpeted steps for photographs.” The gown is Penny Packham – I like it. It’s more sparkly and glam than Kate usually goes for, and this blush-pink is a really difficult color to wear. You have to have a very specific skin tone, and Kate, still glowing with a great tan from her honeymoon, really pops. Some sites are saying she looks “the thinnest she’s ever been” but I actually think she looked way thinner right after she returned from her honeymoon. She actually looks like she’s back to solids now.

Anyway, I keep reading about Catherine and Prince William’s Canadian and American tour like it’s the second coming of Jesus. Don’t get me wrong, I’m excited that Waity & Wills will be on American soil too, but even I don’t care for the breathless coverage of every single little nuance and twitch from some “palace insider” dishing on the couple’s travel plans. Here’s what’s known thus far: Kate is not traveling with a lady in waiting, nor stylist, nor valet, although the stylist or “dresser” thing could change, possibly before the trip. Rumor has it that Kate will be doing her own makeup and possibly her own hair for the trip, and will have at least three costume changes a day, or more. It‘s a ten-day trip, and reportedly, she‘s packing 40 outfits. And you know what the makeup thing means, right? Raccoon McWaity rides again! That girl loves her eyeliner. She loves to cake it on and on forever.

This Enquirer story was one of the more interesting pieces about the upcoming trip, only because the speculation involves Kate trying to “demand” that she and William spend more time in LA, so they can properly take in the sights and hang out with Oprah and Brangelina:

Kate Middleton hit the roof when she learned their upcoming visit to Hollywood would be strictly business, insiders say – and demanded to meet Hollywood’s biggest stars, including her idol Oprah Winfrey!

“Kate is a dedicated Oprah fan. She admires her for becoming a TV icon after growing up poor. She regards Oprah as American royalty and the queen of Hollywood,” an informed royal source tells The Enquirer.

The trouble started when Kate saw the names of the people who were scheduled to meet with she and William during their two-day stop in California.

“Kate asked, ‘Where are the movie stars? This bunch is so dull!’” the source divulged. William explained they were going to California as business ambassadors for Britain – and Kate blew up, said the source.

“She stormed, ‘I want to see Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Aniston and J. Lo!’” the insider revealed. “Kate has never set foot in Canada or the US, and she’s determined to make this an occasion for the family album. Her anger shocked William. He was all set to do his royal duty, but Kate was having none of it.”

She demanded palace courtiers make a call to Oprah so she could tour Oprah’s Santa Barbara estate, and persuaded William to push for introductions to Justin Timberlake and Reese Witherspoon.

The royal couple will definitely get together with David and Victoria Beckham, which “William thinks is a big deal… but Kate told him they could meet with the Beckhams when they come over to London. She’s not impressed.”

“Kate was livid because William agreed to only two days in California. She’s demanding at least four… she wants to see where the stars live and take in every aspect of LA life. She’ll be like a kid in a candy store!”

[From The Enquirer, print edition]

Now, do I really think Kate would storm around, demanding things? Nope. I think she’s still in geisha mode, although to be fair to her, her personality does seem to lean towards “even-tempered” and “reticent”. Even if she’s pissed off about something, it’s doubtful that she would ever raise her newly-posh voice. My guess is that Kate probably expressed a slight disappointment that she and William weren’t going to get to do any “fun” things while in California, and that was what got blown out of proportion. Also, it wouldn’t surprise me at all if Oprah and Kate met sometime soon. Oprah is probably working her way into some invitation as we speak. But how much would you love a photo of Kate and Angelina Jolie?

    Did you have to ask, Kaiser? She looks gorgeous, stunning, absolutely fabulous, dahling!

  2. viper says:

    SOMEBODY FEED THAT GIRL A MEGA CHEESEBURGER! SHE’S GONNA DISAPPEAR!

  3. JulieM says:

    I actually can see her storming around and demanding things her way. Maybe not just yet, Geisha Mode, I like it. But it will come. She’s waited 9 years to have it her way, and she will insist on it.

  4. Quest says:

    Absolutely lovely…she looks so happy.

    I think they had a little “biscuits and eclairs” combination in the limo

  5. MeMyself says:

    Love the color and style, but from a distance the skirt looks moth eaten in some bits.

  6. Eugene says:

    SHE LOOKS ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! OUT OF THIS WORLD! AWESOME

  7. BB says:

    She looks lovely, but imho she needs to lay off the black pencil / eyeliner and switch to a more gentle shade, maybe brown. And she really needs to stop lining her bottom lashline so heavily, it really ages her…

  8. apsutter says:

    I love Jenny Packham! She looks lovely…much better than that horrible white suit the other day. I highly doubt she’s run around acting like a damn idiot abot not seeing celebs. But I would be disappointed too because it will be her first time to California and they won’t be able to do anything fun together.

  9. teehee says:

    Sadly I have found her tastes so far to be ‘meh’ all the time. But, considering what being a princess ought to be about, thats ok.
    And if I had lades in wiaitng tailoring my every last detail from my hair down to the buckles on my shoes, I’d look just as good.
    Also goes to show, its more than the clothes that makes a spectacular sight; its the whole person and aura.

  10. machiavelli says:

    Like it, but…she needs hips.

  11. Lantana says:

    She looks gorgeous. She looks like she’s made of glass. If the camera adds 10 pounds, I can only imagine how thin she must look in person. I think healthy-thin looks good, but she’s bordering on scary-thin.

  12. Melissa says:

    LOVE the dress!! I think it would look a lot better on someone with some meat on their bones. She has lost way too much weight!! She looked so much better before!

  13. Toe says:

    She looks great, but she needs to gain some weight. Where is the pic of Liz Hurley? She also attended. She looked soo FAB. I want her body.

  14. TXCinderella says:

    She looks absolutely beautiful, just like a princess should!

  15. mln76 says:

    I give her credit for looking like a ‘real princess’ in that dress…I hope that she doesn’t meet the Brange just yet. I have a feeling the tabs would sharpen their knives on both of them , create some ugly feud out of thin air or accuse Angie of coming on to Will/Kate or both.

  16. Rose says:

    haha that enquirer piece is priceless, they really do just make this stuff up. That reads like a bad holiday novel

  17. Lucy says:

    Although.. I don’t mind the liner on top of her eyes, and the little flick of liner on the outer corners is nice, I do agree with BB7 – that lower lash liner needs to go!!

  18. mew says:

    The dress makes her look insanely skinny. Which, I guess, is part of the plan. Why to waste a good skinnyness.

    The dress itself is not exactly oh wow amazing, but it’s better than average, better than just ok. It’s nice. But nothing much more than that.

  19. guesty says:

    Cannot stand that cheesy smile of Wills. And she is still painfully thin imo. And yes I do think she’s more than capable of throwing a fit to see the ‘stars’.

  20. Bella says:

    She is lovely, but her style fails to impress me. She doesn’t have the WOW factor…ever. She is young and vibrant and a trendsetter. The dress is fabulous, but if it had a sleeker neckline, definitely loose the chiffon puffy things…maybe a modest halter cut showing off a little back? It would be more youthful and modern. The long flowing hair is sweet, but she should go for sophistication. She is a princess, yes, and should be elegant, but her style is more for a teenager, not a young woman.

  21. sandy says:

    i think she’s okay looking not stunning or out of this world like some papers will have us believe. I’ve noticed since she’s married prince William , u can’t say anything -ve about her without people thumbing down your comment. I think she’s really lucky that prince William married her, the dress is okay she reminds me of a young liz hurley. I think liz hurley at her age rocked the dress and had a wonderful body.

  22. Alex says:

    Like the dress, but not on her. Her skin is too dark, her makeup too garish, and in some other pictures the dress really gives her linebacker shoulders. It’s also painfully obvious how thin she is.

  23. heb says:

    I don’t believe for a second that Kate said any of that NE bs

  24. Hautie says:

    Wow. The National Inquirer really does love to lay it on thick.

    I seriously doubt this girl ever raises her voice. She looks like she knows how to handle him. With expert hands. :)

    And if she really wants to stay in LA for a couple of free days for sight-seeing… why shouldn’t they.

    They are newlyweds. And god knows William has his own private money, to afford to hang out for a couple of days.

  25. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    I don’t like the dress. Kate however is lovely look at that face. I remember their wedding actually preempted our local news in Chicago. It was Friday…this city needs its news, I was irritated about that, thank God for the internet. Anyway I am hoping the media doesn’t follow their every freaking move and report to us like we give sh*t..cuz we don’t.

  26. Pix says:

    Why does this woman look skinnier and skinnier every time I see her. I hope this is just a post wedding phase and not the development of a larger problem.

  27. Lala says:

    She and her sister look too old for their age and they both have to many wrinkles. Both look like they are in their mid 30′s.

  28. trolleydolly says:

    ‘Where are the movie stars? This bunch is so dull!’”

    Such a fake quote. English people never use “bunch” in that way. A bunch of grapes yes, but “bunch of people” – ah, no!

    Stunning dress, lovely hair, shoes and makeup are great – but she’s so painfully thin. If she gains a pound though, the tabloids will go wild..she can’t win.

  29. lin234 says:

    I’d like to talk about Will’s hair! It looks like he grew some back.

    They look like a couple in their mid- thirties. Her eye bags and wrinkles are quite deep considering how pampered she is. But I like her dress! I have a theory (please note the word theory) that people in colder climates tend to look older. I mean in warmer climates you can wear sunscreen but when it’s cold all the time, there isn’t much you can do to protect your face unless you cover it. Yes, I realize there are exceptions but generally from what I’ve seen, it seems to be the case.

  30. spinner says:

    sniff, sniff…I smell BS on this story. However, Kate looks absolutely stunning. Love the dress. A gorgeous princess, indeed.

  31. Deb says:

    Maybe the poor girl is thin because of the stress of having people constantly picking her appearance apart – from hair to make up to clothes. Would you want that kind of pressure to have to be perfect all the time yet knowing these is no way you will please everyone? I don’t envy her.

  32. michelle says:

    LOL about Kate’s supposed tantrum about meeting the stars!!! On an another note, considering that William has known her for 10+ years, how can he not be concerned about her weight loss and the impact on her health? Is he blind or stupid? Especially with his mother’s history, you’d think he would be attuned to this.

  33. sapphire says:

    That dress is goreous on her. But like everybody else, I think she needs about 15 lbs and brown, smudged liner.

  34. Kolby says:

    This dress requires a more formal hairstyle.

  35. Crash2GO2 says:

    Absolutely gorgeous.

    I think we are going to have to get used to the eyeliner. She seems quite attached to it.

  36. Brittney says:

    Oh, wow. I haven’t read the article yet, but after that first picture I have to say: STUNNING dress. Really amazing. I don’t usually care much about fashion unless it’s a rare red carpet success for Angie, but somehow I can’t get over this dress. I think maybe I’ve fallen into the princess-fervor trap.

  37. Brittney says:

    Also… oh, WOW. That is pretty much the same dress Blair Waldorf wore to her royal engagement soiree. Areyouserious.

  38. marge says:

    I think she would’ve looked great with a soft braid, something to clear her face. With all that make up, the overall look is too heavy for that dress. She could also have another type of make up on her sleeve; change is good from time to time, and occasion from occasion.
    LOOVE the dress

  39. Blue says:

    Lol that so called story of what happened was quite funny. She needs to eat badly.

  40. Onyx XV says:

    She looks absolutely fabulous. And they are quite the handsome couple!

    @ lin234: It is not just you! I grew up in New England and now live in the hot humid South and I share your theory. Also I believe that higher humidity helps keep the skin more moisturized and therefore younger looking. When I travel back and forth I really notice the difference. People’s skin really does age more in colder climates. I don’t know if that’s why Kate looks older than her years, but I do agree with your theory.

  41. Mia says:

    It is a beautiful dress, but she is too thin. My goodness. That is not attractive, but to each his own. I can only imagine how she looks naked.

    This dress is a far improvement over that white suit, which I thought was awful. You could see her shoulder blades through it.

  42. ladybert62 says:

    I would kill to be that gorgeous! She looks fantastic, happy and is so skinny. I love that dress! She is a class act all the way!

  43. lucy2 says:

    I like the dress, but agree they both look a little older than they are.

  44. Isa says:

    I guess I’m the only one but I never see anything wrong with her eye liner.

    And I like the dress.

  45. Isabel says:

    I adore this gown. She is gorgeous!!!!

    The story is bullcrap. Kate is so not the type to be such a brat!!

  46. insidescoop says:

    The girl is gorgeous! She could wear a paper sack and still look good.

  47. feebee says:

    I liked the dress but was too distracted by her figure that looks like my nine year old daughter (minus the boobs).

  48. Abby says:

    SHE.LOOKS.STUNNING. I would die to have her hair. And her make up looks gorgeous. Dress—beautiful. And that story sounds completely made up. I don’t believe it.

  49. lin234 says:

    @ Onyx XV: I grew up and live in the west coast so cold to me means anytime it hits above 75 brrrr. :P I fell in love with skiing years ago and I remember noticing how the really experienced skiers (past the age of 20) all had deep crows feet around their eyes. I made it a point to pretty much cover my entire face when I ski. When I met a lot of Uni people during a summer in England, I really noticed the difference.

    Since Kate is a skier, lives in a cold climate, suns, etc it’s no wonder she looks so old. I mean she’s around the same age as Natalie Portman, Michelle Williams, Rachel Bilson, etc. She looks like she’s a well taken care of 40 year old when you compare her to those women.

  50. Kayla says:

    Other than looking a little bobble-heady in the last picture, I think she looks amazing. I’m in love with this dress, especially the way the skirt moves. Nice one Waity.

  51. Marianne says:

    I think she looks gorgeous. A little too skinny, but gorgeous nonetheless.

  52. Tara says:

    Pretty much agree with everyone else. The ridiculous eyeliner makes her look like a cable news weather girl from the ’90s. The dress is lovely and she does look quite relaxed and happy. She is a bit fragile looking, however. It appears that Waity has always been extremely thin but gearing up for the big wedding left her absolutely skeletal – not a good look. Look at her throat in the last few pics…ewww. But alittle mutton and maybe a baby or two should do wonders for her figure.

  53. Bamafresh says:

    I think the dress is a little edgy for her, but she looks absolutely incredible. She is very thin indeed, but her figure is wearing the heck out of that gown!

  54. GoofPuff says:

    Dress is great, hair is meh. She needs to mix it up a bit. And lay off the piles of black eyeliner she cakes on. Oy too much!

  55. Denver Danni says:

    She looks so beautiful. I love it.

  56. P.J. says:

    The dress is very princess-like, very feminine and glamourous. This long column style looks great on someone with a body like Kate’s — smaller hips and no big breasts like Hollywood stars have.

    Angelina Jolie is 6 or 7 years older and in my opinion looks MUCH older than Kate.

  57. Nash says:

    That Enquirer story had me seriously laughing, I mean come on now!

  58. skibunny says:

    Gorgeous!!! Wrinkles? I think everyone is so used to looking at the those botoxed to hell Hollywood actresses.

  59. gamblea says:

    Pippa eat your heart out!

  60. REALIST says:

    Pretty. Remember, Kate can’t get away with radical fashion this early, although most of us old-timers remember then-Lady Diana’s black cleavage dress. Being the Lady she was, Di managed to keep her cleavage from falling out whilst getting out of her limo.

  61. Jennifer says:

    Kolby: agreed! Her hair is often too casual for the dress, I noticed that. It doesn’t have to be in some severe bun, but not that wispy long layers all over the place look for such a formal dress, either.

  62. Stephie says:

    I think she looks beautiful, and he looks great too. She’s soooo skinny though. I hope this ongoing need to be a waif isn’t his (or the Queen’s) doing. Kate, seriously, eat something.

  63. Dani says:

    I think she looks even prettier compared to her weeding day, she looks great!Loved the dress!

  64. endoplasmic_ridiculum says:

    She looks really gorgeous, and genuinely HAPPY.

  65. Redheadwriter says:

    Show the shoes! Her shoes were fantastic.

  66. richie says:

    The dress is gorgeous but she doesnt have a figure to carry that on! she looks like a stick and flat as a surf board.Her make up is great and a her face glows…..

  67. MourningTheDeathofMusic says:

    Paint those toenails!

    And shame on you Wills – when walking with your lady up a flight of stairs such as this, you should have your hand on her at all times, the small of the back, the elbow, etc. as a true gentleman would, to always ensure her safety.

  68. P.J. says:

    Skibunny is right, I think part of Kate’s appeal is that she’s for real. Most celebs are beautiful, but they have had a lot of work done to alter their faces and bodies. They’re beautiful but artificial.

    Kate is also very lively — look at those expressions she has! It’s so refreshing, and real. She’s not a waxlike dollface posing at a photocall.

  69. Hellen says:

    Beautiful color on her, and te dress is much prettier up close than at a distance. But she is ungodly thin.

    I agree, she is still in Geisha Mode. But just wait till she gets pregnant…

  70. Patricia says:

    I really like Kate but…I think she would look even prettier if she gained 10 lbs and softened her makeup.

    Also – I am so tired of the nude/blush fashion trend already. It just does not suit most women. She needs color!!! She looked great in the navy, red and brown she wore earlier his year. Please no purple and orange.

    Women need to wear what works on them – not just what’s on trend.

  71. France says:

    To tell the truth, I think this dress is everything except well cut, and elegant ! The top is awful and out of fashion for years and years, the stuff too. A kind of journey back to Dynastie tv show ! That (nice) young woman seems to “not having” the “little thing” for now… Her choices seem not to suit to her true personnality and it gives the feeling of a (weird) gap between the apparence she thinks (perhaps) she must have and who she seems to be… a young modern simple girl…

  72. anne_000 says:

    i like the color of the dress, but not the shiny stuff on it.

    i dunno if kate will ever get to the level of demanding b*tch that sophie (edward’s wife), fergie, & camilla seems to be at.

    if she does, then i feel sorry for william.

  73. SolitaryAngel says:

    Michael K showed the shoes she wore with this dress and they are to die for! Show the shoes!!!

  74. Ell says:

    She looks stunning. They both look very happy, lovely to see.

    Sorry to blow the aging theory but I’m english and I’m often complimented on my skin. I’ve never been one to sun worship. I think skin aging is simply from having too much sun. Kate and Pippa have probably holidayed abroad often, maybe they haven’t always taken care. Even though sunscreen helps I don’t think it’s guaranteed to protect you one hundred per cent.

  75. bluhare says:

    Only one person said something about her feet . . . but she’s stocking-less!!! Bare feet in peep toe shoes. It’s almost shocking!!!

    I think she looks gorgeous. I see Diana.2 press coming, albeit without the drama.

  76. Doken says:

    She looks beautiful, though the consensus is correct way too thin. Did anyone else notice you can see her white bra through the dress? Look at the close-up photo from her waist up.

  77. beclove says:

    She is gorgeous but (from my lumpy perch on the couch at least) needs a few pounds. She looks pretty extreme…

  78. moja31 says:

    Love the dress, adore the shoes, but the hair is getting tired. She’s definitely still losing weight, she’s thinner than the model that walked this down the runway which is insane; and if this is with the 10 lbs the camera adds, then I’m frightened to think of what she looks like in person. She was prettier 15 lbs ago, when her features were a bit softer.

    As for the NE, I buy that she wanted their cali trip to be more fun or exciting, since the side trip never seemed to serve much of a purpose in the first place, other than just wanting to visit LA; but there’s no way that discussion went down anything close to the way they describe it. If anything, she perhaps whined about it a bit to one of her friends or her family; and the NE went over the top in their imagining of a conversation that anyone under the sun might have about a trip they were taking to LA.

  79. Mimi says:

    The dress is gorgeous, but why would Angelina Jolie bother with her?

    Angelina has made a career, done a ton of stuff on her own. she is independent and never tried to marry for fame/fortune.

    Kate has no career, seems keen on fame and photo ops, always looked thrill that photogs want to take her picture even before she “got married”.

    It wouldn’t surprise me if she wanted to meet movie stars, since that all she ever seemed to care about- partying and getting famous and association to higher status and power-people.

  80. Kim says:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!! She looks absolutely gorgeous and what a modern choice for royalty!!! Love to see her dressing modern and not all stuffy. She does need to put on a few pds *& i would like to have seen the hair up with this dress but she does love to wear her hair down and has pretty hair. I want that dress!

  81. John Wayne Lives says:

    @ Kolby, “This dress requires a more formal hairstyle.” ITA.

    She looks beautiful, but eesh, too skinny :( almost gross skinny. I hate to say that. I’m sure (I hope) it’s the stress of the last 6mo though. When I’m stressed out I drop weight like crazy without trying. But I hope she allows herself to regain some healthy weight and not feel like she has to maintain this uber-skinnyness.

  82. 4Real says:

    She looks gorgeous! A fashion designers DREAM!

  83. Charlotte says:

    She is wasting away. She doesn’t even have broad shoulders or hips to help hide it. Geez, honey! The wedding’s over! You can start eating again!

  84. garvels says:

    They are certainly a striking couple. Attractive look for the Duchess. I like the dress for the most part but I do not care for the neckline. I agree with some of the other posters regarding a slightly more formal hairstyle and I really wish someone would hide her black eye liner. The severe black liner seems to age her face.

  85. kasper says:

    Princess Waity looks absolutely vacant. Prince Baldspot III has the same smile as Napoleon Dynmanite. If they can find him new hair, do you think they’ll find a way for him to close his mouth from time to time?

  86. aloe juice says:

    love it! envious of her figure

  87. snoots says:

    I have to admit this look makes me excited to see more style from her. The Duchess has arrived.

  88. phaksi says:

    The dress is pretty, better than what she’s worn before, including her wedding dress. Why arent there any pictures of Harry, I heard he was at the event

  89. Lisa Turtle says:

    Kaiserella, I see that you are in complete agreement with my comments regarding Cakey Kate. How bad do you just want to wash that shit off her face? Powder & Eyeliner Trauma. She’s too young to wear her “face” like that.

    Additional comments: Kate totally wants to meet celebrities. Sure she loves William, but Kate is in this for the celebrity, for the attention. She loves every minute of dressing up and playing Princess. I think we can agree that most of us would. But this chick is smarter than to leverage her first visit for a bunch of celebrity meet-and-greets. If Kate want to meet The Brange (which like – DUH who doesn’t want to meet The Brange?!?), she will just casually get involved with one of their international charaties. Ta-Da! Kate’s new job is just to bring attention to worthy causes, and be a tourism ambassador.

  90. crtb says:

    She looks great! And they always look sooooo happy! Too bad you don’t have a picture of the shoes. They were perfect with that dress.

  91. TG says:

    She looks gorgeous. Wish I were in CA to see them. And I would love a photo of Angelina ad Waity. Wonder who would out thin the other?

  92. lisa says:

    that was such a silly story. I don’t really follow Will/Catherine but even I can’t see her doing this

    Plus I don’t see Brad and Angie rushing to rub shoulders with the Royals. Each of them has already met Prince Charles. NOT to mention that they have also met many Kings/Queens, and other heads of states. Brad/Angie don’t seem the type to care. I mean neither of them have been to the White House dinners (although both have spent time lobbying on Capital Hill) If they cared they would have gone to some of those STATE dinners that any and every celeb manages to get an invite to.

    I think Kate is pretty, not beautiful. She has a maturity about her look. Which makes her look older. Like Angelina, they both look so much younger without makeup.

    But I don’t buy this story. Besides, when they come to the US in July Brad/Angie and family will be in Malta (if they are not there already) so a meeting is a mute point to begin with. YOU can’t meet if you are not in the same country.

  93. jemshoes says:

    Kate’s breathtaking in this dress – stunning! :)

    I don’t mind her preoccupation with eye-liner. She’s got big beautiful eyes that she likes to emphasise. I understand her (makeup and general styling) philosophy of sticking with something when it works for you – so many ‘beige’ and ‘vanilla’ celebrities do. And I like their looks and outfits a lot more than the Gagas, Rihannas, Keishas and Katy Perrys of the world!

  94. Common Sense says:

    What is the fascination with everything being outrageous? Her look suits her personality wise and also taking into consideration her position. She is someone who just entered a certain echelon of society in her country, why would she be walking around in something Kim K might wear? I think the dress and especially the shoes are beautiful. If she manages to gain a couple of pounds soon she will be totally on point.

  95. dj says:

    I did notice that her mother seemed to do the eyeliner also (at the wedding). Whatever, I like that she can do her own blessed makeup. She looks lovely in the dress. However, I think perhaps it photographs poorly because I like it much better in the closer photos. All these things she will learn as P. Diana did. She really has a beautiful smile. I think Prince Williams looks gorgeous himself!

    @lin234 – Great! The next stop from where I live is Antarctica – I guess I’m starting to look real old! Ha ha! Kate looks amazing. Skinny but gorgeous. Loving the dress.

    The only 2 times this woman has every looked like an ethereal princess;
    1. on her wedding day
    2. in this dress!

    Her makeup and hair here are REALLY flattering. Not to mention that shes wearing girlish COLOR for once :)

    Sublime dress, but big meh on hair and makeup. Get some help, Princess, you’ll be glad you did!

  99. Dressed as a Princess should be. Incredibly gorgeous, appropriate and above all she’s wearing the best fashion accessory a girl can have, a beautiful smile.

    She is gorgeous, and I love the dress. But she’s going to age really badly unless she puts some weight on.

  101. pato says:

    I stil can´t believe she is just 29. she looks so old, her neck!! I´m 35 and look younger than she does.
    and just knowing the dress costed 6.000 dollars makes me don´t like me reading all this stuff.

    He’s bald and a mouth breather – what a catch. She looks like if a thought ever accidentally crossed her “mind” she would giggle with shock and wonder.

    Wow – what a gorgeous dress! I think it would look even better if she added a good 10 pounds. I would love to wear that dress.

    I actually like the dress and those shoes are awesome. But I still don’t like her makeup and she should have had her hair up a bit to show off the neckline of the dress. And where’s a picture of Elizabeth Hurley beside Catherine? I’ll be the judge who looked better!

    As for Catherine throwing a hissy fit over the lack of “fun things” on the California trip, I seriously doubt that happened. I think she made a deal with William to get the ring on her finger. She’ll put up with the necessary British stumping for business if she gets to wear fancy stuff like that outfit and travel to places she’s never been.

    Anyway, Catherine has plenty of opportunities to visit the USA, especially if it is a free trip, in the future. This won’t be her last trip by any doubt.

    This dress is gorgeous! The color is just perfect. It’s definitely something I would wear (if I had appropriate events to wear it to, & more money than God, that is).

    One of the two only things that I dislike… is the fact that the top half of the dress looks like a big rectangle, & the horizontal high neckline should have been much lower (to flatter her neck) in either a pointed/curved design. It would have also broken up the ‘boxy’ shape.

    I think the wispy sleeves are very cute… But adding those to the top of the dress causes her body to look unbalanced & top heavy, because of her very slim hips. The dress is still beautiful, (as is she in these pics) but I think the ‘idea’ of this dress could’ve been improved upon.

    If only fat can be exchanged. I’d give her 30 lbs of my fat. She and I would have perfect bodies. Great exchange.

  107. Hunny says:

    It’s lovely and I like Kate cause she always smile and look so sweet with Prince William.

    I think Enquirer just add the “!” behind those insiders’ input of what Kate is “demanding”.

    I think it is more like a questions than a command words.

    The way I see it Kate is like a classic movie. You should never attempt to remake it. It is reliable. You will never get bored seeing it again and again. Keep up the good work on behalf of us Brits!
