The Duchess visited Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool, on Valentine's Day. The coat she wore was pretty and well cut, in chocolate brown
It's a nice enough coat, but once again, there's no wow factor, no hint that this is a member of the royal family. No adornment save a thin belt, no pretty scarf or blingy brooch, no hat, no accessories except a black clutch and black shoes.
OK, well, let's see what the dress beneath looks like:
OMG. Solid black. Head to toe black. Unadorned, plain, boring to the point of shocking. C'mon, Catherine, these are sick children you're visiting. Do you not want to cheer them up a little? Is your need to blend into the background so strong that you can't put on a bright colored dress for the little ones? I'm sorry, folks, but this is really awful. I'm not saying she looks bad, I'm saying it's the wrong outfit for the occasion.
What do you think?
