Duchess Kate: Emerald pleated printed silk midi dress by Rochas

Emerald pleated printed silk midi dress. The dress with an off-white floral pattern features side slit pockets, button-fastening keyhole at the back and zip fastening along the back. By Rochas.

This dress is interesting in the way the fabric flows when in movement but I find it a bit too dark and a bit too long.

1- The Duchess of Cambridge wore it on 22nd May 2017 to attend the Chelsea Flower Show in London.

Bespoke blush pink, ankle-length silk dress featuring a deep vee-neck and billowing sleeves which are cuffed with three self-covered buttons, pleats at the front and back of the skirt. By Alexander McQueen.

I don’t find the style of this dress very attractive, it is way too fussy. I like the colour and the fabric though.

I can’t decide if I like this coat or if I don’t. It looks very regal and fitted for a Princess but on the edge of being a bit too much. I would however say that it is a hit on the Duchess, the colour is delightful.

1- The Duchess of Cambridge wore it for the first time on 27th July 2012 for the Olympic opening ceremony in London.

Bespoke version of the long tier black mix violet jacquard dress. Kate’s dress doesn’t include the thin straps and boning within the bodice with built in bra construction. It is instead an off-the-shoulder version of the dress.

It has organza layering throughout the skirt. From the Alexander McQueen’s Resort 2016 collection.

I am not a big fan of this dress, I think it lacks lustre and it doesn’t fit the Duchess as it accentuates her lack of feminine hips.

1- The Duchess of Cambridge wore the dress on 12th February 2017 to attend the 70th annual British Academy Film Awards at the London’s Royal Albert Hall.

I am not a fan of this dress, it isn’t modern, edgy or young-looking. I don’t like the print either. It isn’t a great pick for the Duchess.

I am not a big fan of this dress, it is too dark, the fabric pattern is too fussy and the cut not very modern in my opinion. The only thing I like about it is the quality of the fabric.

I don’t like many things about this dress apart from the quality of the fabric which is silk. The overall look is dated and not very flattering.

1- The Duchess of Cambridge wore the dress on 18th October 2016 to attend the reception for Olympic and Paralympic heroes at Buckingham Palace.
