    Sorry, I really don't like that wishy washy pinky grey faux Chanel ensemble.

    I think she looks fantastic. I'm proud of her and I am not even English!

    She does! She's an amazing woman but she looks better in proper colours.

    I'm not a fan of green generally and especially not that shade but she carries it off. Kate really needs to raise her game now. I think she aiming for understated elegance and "look at my awesome hair" at every opportunity but it's just predictable and boring.
    Whilst I think Kate might be workshy and I hate her in skinny jeans, I think she really is trying to look neat & presentable most of the time, unless it's a really glam event. Have read rumors PW likes her where she is and does not want her to spread her wing and also, more importantly, PC while supportive of his son doesn't want himself or his DoC outshined. I tend to believe this take.

    Sometimes her dresser/dressmaker Angela Kelly gets it right and sometimes, as in this case, very, very wrong

    And I HATE those damn shoes. I know they're sensible and all, but yuck-o.

    She and her bag are so funny .... I've seen so many formal pics of her sitting with her bag at her feet. Every other woman is bagless. What's in there that's so important? She doesn't have an attendant or lady-in-waiting that can take care of it for her while she's handshaking and taking pics? It just seems so humorous to me.

    I am also not a fan of the sensible shoes. They're awful and don't belong with most of the outfits she wears. I wish she'd wear a nude pump (not the white ones that she swaps out with the seemingly identical black ones) with a lot of her outfits; much more in tune with today's fashion and I think they'd look great on her, especially since she loves to wear a lot of color.

    The funniest to me is the presence of her bag in Prince George's christening photos. You can tell that no one had the nerve to request that she move it out of camera range.

    My recommendations for how Lilibet and other octogenarians should edge up their shoe wardrobe.
