Kate, Will, Harry, and Lupo at a Charity Polo Match in Ascot

Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Harry, Prince of Wales participate in the Audi Challenge Cup at Cowarth Park in Ascot to raise funds for the charities supported by both Princes. Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge was on hand to show her support for her husband and brother-in-law, and the Royal couple also brought along their black cocker spaniel puppy, Lupo to the polo match.

As the sun came out today the Duchess of Cambridge opted for a light silk shift to watch her husband on the polo field. Teamed with a pair of towering open-toe wedges the ensemble proved a little impractical as the winds began to pick up.

Kate was seen dashing across the grassy grounds in Ascot struggling to keep to maintain her modesty as the £290.00 dress billowed in the breeze. The buttoned-up teal petal print shift, currently reduced to £199, came from Hampshire-based label Libelula.

After the competition, Will and Kate drove away in an Audi A7.

Her dress is awful. You're not 50 years-old, girl.

she doesn't know how to dress for her age

the press keeps trying to make her a style icon but shes not

she borrows clothes from her mother, and they look better on her mother.

She's been looking quite good lately imo. But this one is terrible.

I would have liked the Roland Mouret if she bothered to have it tailored and wore the right shoes

I think her style is pretty boring, but doesn't seem like she's got a lot of choice since she's a Royal now. I guess she doesn't do bad within the boring dress restrictions, I think that's why people think she's so ~stylish.

plenty of royals dress well

look at Mary of Denmark.

Even look at Beatrice and Eugenie. At royal events, they dress appropriately. Its possible to be chic and age appropriate and still be modest/conservative.

She dresses like her mother in law who is 60+

She does have limitations on the way she dresses as she is royalty. She can't just wear anything she wants and it be OK.

I actually love those kinds of dresses myself. Trouble is, I feel like often you can only pull off the old-lady clothing if you happen to be super, super gorgeous -- then you're just "quirky" but adorable (like that one Deschanel I s'pose -- at least I assume that's what she's going for). Kind of like all the models they have on Modcloth or something.

I love pretty much 90% of everything she wears and feel like a lot of people scream it is old lady just because we are so completely unused to anything not too tight and sexual. However, this dress is a miss for me. A little too dowdy rather than just classy.

IA with everything you say ever.

Agreed with everything.

ia, if those sleeves were 3/4 length the whole thing would have been so much prettier and less frumpy. She's not usually quite this frumpy.
xdecadentx 14th-May-2012 03:03 pm (UTC)
Agree with this whole comment.
drownanddive 15th-May-2012 01:07 pm (UTC)
Agreed 100%
Her and Emmy Rossum are my style icons.
