How old does this outfit look? (daily hate link,sorry)
I think she could still look really smart and formal, but MODERN and showcase the best new UK designers like Michelle Obama does with US designers.

Really boring, IMO!

Except for the tart's trotters, it looks like something to wear to the office.

I suppose this is her job (or at least role) now, and the Royal Family are often dull and worthy.

I think she looks lovely. Very classic but what the hell does she carry in her bag?!

JoleneJoleneJoleneJoleeene Thu 30-Jun-11 18:48:27

She could be so much more though. She has a sample size figure and access to any designer that she wants. I'd like to see her in more dresses like the one she wore to the tennis. She's 29 not 59 ffs

I think she looks smart. We're talking about an outfit to wear to say hi to the Canadian High Commissioner and then get on a plane. Not really an opportunity to be 'out there'.

Just needs a shorter, curvier jacket imo - straight-up-and-down doesn't flatter her.

JoleneJoleneJoleneJoleeene Thu 30-Jun-11 20:13:56

A bit better...
I wish she'd wear brighter colours.

meditrina Thu 30-Jun-11 20:14:41

She changed for landing - here's the flock wallpaper arrival dress.

JoleneJoleneJoleneJoleeene Thu 30-Jun-11 20:20:16

I like it, very on trend and very clever choice of designer.

Navy tailoring is a big mistake on a plane. Apart from the non-regulation heel height, she looks like an air hostess.

JoleneJoleneJoleneJoleeene Thu 30-Jun-11 21:47:18

You are exactly right Matsikula

She doesn't, her hairdresser who she's taken with her does.

chipstick10 Thu 30-Jun-11 22:42:57

The polly push lock mulberry she is carrying will sell out im sure.

MerylStrop Thu 30-Jun-11 23:09:18

I think she looks amazing in the Erdem. Shades of Jackie O. And the hair is awesome.
The navy suit is awful, though.

I think she's a bit meh with toooooo much eye liner - very ageing

lachesis Fri 01-Jul-11 00:17:30

I think they love each other very much, have a strong relationship and are very compatible. I think that shows no matter what he or she wears. They both look immensely happy and that's the best accessory.

I think it's a shame that she has felt the need to say that she will not be accepting freebies from UK designers.

IMO she should be praised for choosing to wear clothes that are given to her by UK designers - it's not as though she won't be promoting the UK fashion industry abroad.

VivaLeBeaver Fri 01-Jul-11 00:26:53

Ha ha. In one of the photos the lad in the wheelchair is so checking out her arse!

lachesis Fri 01-Jul-11 00:28:37

grin, Viva. At least he has good taste! She is a beautiful woman.

Northernlurker Fri 01-Jul-11 16:42:20

Have you seen today's outfit?
Themed hat and a brooch borrowed from Granny with the Reiss white dress from the engagement snaps here
I think she looks lovely though I hope she never wears that hat again - definately one for Canada Day alone grin

MrsGypsy Fri 01-Jul-11 16:49:41

Today's outfit is a bit of a shocker. If you're going to wear red shoes, make sure they're --Come Fuck Me--sexy shoes or else they look like they should be on Minnie Mouse.

Today she needed a stylist. And yesterday. All terribly dull. And safe. And yawn.

Northernlurker Fri 01-Jul-11 16:55:20

I think she looked nice. Very complimentary to the country to wear their colours.
