She looks smashing, in our opinion. Smart, cool, and appropriate. The suit fits her impeccably and doesn’t draw too much attention from the boyfriend in the spotlight. (Of course, Kate Middleton steals attention wherever she goes by virtue of her place as not-yet-engaged royal girlfriend, but there you go.) And the hat … well, it’s better than that ghastly funereal thing she plopped on her head for Peter Phillips’s wedding. The 1940s style of the hat works with the overall silhouette, and I like the size of it. But good lord, is there a single milliner in London who doesn’t put random curly junk or feathers on the top of a hat?
(We apologize if Phillip Treacy is reading this — we know 95% of these hats are probably yours, and you could also have us killed in a suspect millinery accident, we’d wager.)
