Very dated look.

After her appearance as belle of the ball earlier this week, it was a more sober look for the Duchess of Cambridge on a visit to a homeless shelter today.
Three days after she dazzled in a £4,000 black velvet evening dress at a military awards, Kate sported a £250 Ralph Lauren olive green jersey dress, clinched at her tiny waist with a thick black belt, and knee length black suede boots as she accompanied her husband, Prince William on a visit to Centrepoint’s Camberwell Foyer centre in Camberwell, south east London.
The prince also abandoned his habitual suit for blue cords and a jumper and shirt.

very boring, but highly appropriate for the occasion (considering they were visiting homeless people). she should have ditched the belt though...

I agree, appropriate for the occasion or jeans would have been fine. From the side it looks nice but from straight on it's not flattering to her figure imo.

Minus the boots, I like the sweater dress.

As to how the McQueen black dress is similar to the Emmanuels engagement gown: both have a sweetheart neckline with ruffles bordering it, both have gathered skirts. Both are a deep black colour. It's mainly in the bustline that I see the similarities. No, the cut isn't identical, but it has a passing resemblance in my eyes.

Ha! I wasn't the only one to imagine the similiarities! And these two photos side by side show the similiarities better

I like this outfit although it would be better for her private wardrobe not for an official event. She could have worn something a little more dressy. And I wish she would do something else with her hair, I'm getting so bored of the bouncy curls. She should straighten it or something. Switch it up a bit!

I actually like this dress. Appropriate for the occasion. I'm sick of seeing those boots, but I'm not sure what other shoes she could have worn with this. Heels would have been way too dressy.

Love it - classic, flattering, and very appropriate for the event itself.

Why does she insist on dressing as if it's 2001?
