Kate Middleton Duchess of Cambridge at African Cats Premiere

Catherine, along with her husband Prince William, attended the premiere of the Guy Ritchie movie "African Cats", a documentary that highlights Africa's threatened wildlife. The charity screening raised funds for the Duke's UK-based animal conservation charity Tusk Trust.
Kate wore a Matthew Williamson lilac grey dress with three-quarter-length sleeves and turquoise and gold beaded details around the neck and sleeves. She added her ubiquitous clutch bag (which she always clutches, as if it's her security blankie), a pair of Kiki McDonough earrings (the ‘Kiki Classic’ Blue Topaz and Diamond Earrings) and some heavy dark grey heels. The earrings are awesome, and my imagination runs away with me when thinking about what great outfits might be inspired by these colors. The dress itself has some interesting detailing - a peplum waist and those turquoise and gold stones save it from severity. I rather like it, although the pale lilac/grey is kind of an old-lady color. And -- dare I say it -- Katherine looks like she might have put on four or five pounds. Looks good on her. Okay, so here are my quibbles. I don't mind Kate wearing her hair down. She has beautiful hair. But please push it behind you so it isn't obscuring the few details of the outfit. Also, the shoes are way too clunky for springtime and for this light colored outfit. I took the liberty of photoshopping my changes and came up with this
Doesn't the whole look just seem cleaner when her hair isn't hanging down the front of her dress? And how about some cute springy shoes in turquoise?
What do you think?
