It’s safe and dull and the demands of her job yaddayaddayadda. Whatever. Her bust and her hair look weird. The blandness of those shoes offends us. We’re bored and ready for a major scandal. Let’s make one up together. We heard she shot a man once.

      She’s a princess. I rest my case.

    • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

      That is a dress designed with give for a bigger bust. I like her hair in the first shot and was willing to accept the dress, but the shoes. What a let-down. That bag looks like it was fashioned from my mother’s couch in the 80s, before she had the good sense to re-upholster it.

      • Constant Reader

        I heard Cathy was jealous because she wanted your father for herself and she got her revenge by stealing the couch. She was in league with the neighbors down the street, who invited your parents to a dinner party and the couch was stolen while they were out of the house.

        • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

          That’s more scandalous than you realize on several counts, my parents were already divorced!

          • Constant Reader

            Oops! I apologize if that was inappropriate.

            • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

              No worries. :)

          • EveEve

            Already divorced and going to a dinner party together?! No wonder Cathy stole the couch. Actually, she probably wanted it so she could have her dressmaker use the fabric for a coat to give to her grandmother in law for Christmas.
            Didn’t Cathy and Pippa pose nude recently for an upcoming issue of Vogue? Or is that just a vague rumor started by Anna Wintour to drum up more subscriptions?

      • siriuslover

        Yes, I like the bust design, actually, but it does require a bigger bust to make it work as intended I think. The dress does look weighted in the hems though…

        • marlie

          Huh. I don’t see it (the hem). This isn’t the kind of dress that would *need* to be weighted though.

          • siriuslover

            I was joking more than anything, given the fiascos she’s had in the past. And you’re right, that dress is not going up unless it gets caught in her underwear after using the facilities.

            • marlie

              Ah. Gotcha. Late in the day = my inability to identify sarcasm/subtle attempts at humor.

            • siriuslover

              or rather, pathetic attempts at humor. :) I tend to think I’m wittier than I am, especially when I’m on TLo! :)

    • Danielle

      HAIR ENVY

    • http://www.argonauticos.blogspot.com/ jason

      I hope she shot the one who did that to her hair

      • LadyVimes

        It’s England, darling, they aren’t barbarians. There are only beheadings.

        • DuBey2

          Winner

        • Kristin McNamara

          And in that first pic, before I scrolled down at all, I totally thought that railing was her holding a sword. That would’ve been wicked cool. Then she could’ve decapitated her hair stylist with it.

        • AthenaJ

          How about a good ol’ drawing and quartering?

      • lundibleu

        I’m choosing to believe that Cathy is displeased that Natalie Dormer nicked her next planned outfit, so is trying to outpink her. Then, to add insult to injury, her hairdresser had flounced off in disgust so she had to take who she could find.

        Either that, or she’s had enough of seeing Pippa and James described as “stars” (oh WTFever, tabloids) and was too busy composing extended sibling revenge strategies to get ready properly.

        • MissusBee

          Imaginary feud between Cathy C and Natalie Dormer FTW. They could have had each others’ lives (if *only* they hadn’t swapped uniforms midway through that lacrosse match in 1998). One day their rivalry will erupt into public view, probably with a food fight on live television during the Royal Variety Performance (Betty will be initially disapproving and then pitch in).

    • AnnaleighBelle

      Those bust darts look like two hands cupping her boobs, so that’s kind of scandalous…

      • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

        I have a grey sheath dress with similar darts and the secret scandal of it pleases me. It’s also a very comfortable bust for a dress made of material with no stretch to it. (Cathy’s looks stretchier than mine though.)

      • kimmeister

        Or Wolverine got to second base!

        • demidaemon

          OUCH.

        • Raspberry2012

          Well now we can start questioning little Prince George’s paternity! Does he have teensy, tiny sharp little claws? Then I rest my case.

      • demidaemon

        Wow, you read my thoughts. HANDPRINT BOOBS. NO BUENO!

    • marlie

      I like it. The dress is pretty, and I choose to ignore the shoes. Cathy’s not a “Be me or do me,” but I do want to steal her wardrobe.

      • Constant Reader

        I like it, too. It’s not PhD-level fashion, but it’s pretty and I want her hair.

        • marlie

          Totally. Classic clothing with some interesting details. Something the regular office drone might aspire to.

          • Aurumgirl

            You said it. Something the regular office drone might aspire to. Well, not office drone. Receptionist.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        I’m totally fine with this look. It’s not exciting, but it gets the job done. Besides, we all know that Cathy’s first choice, which would have been fab, wasn’t available because that adorable baby upchucked on her just as she was heading out the door, hence the change to a very safe dress. Shame on Prince Chubbycheeks for puking on a designer look!

        • Fuchsiaforever

          Hahahha

      • conniemd

        I like the dress too. It’s simple and classy and elegant, which is what a princess should be.

    • Frank_821

      She only shot one? (to paraphrase the Great Gatsby :p)

      • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

        They both reached for the gun. :)

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      She’s on my irrational love list, so I can’t complain. Sorry.

      • Vtg Fashion Library

        Nothing irrational about that. She’s brilliant!

    • deelup

      Looks like she was felt up by Freddie Krueger.

      • demidaemon

        DOUBLE OUCH.

    • dulcinea86

      I’m not sure I have ever seen a judgment like “boring” right there in the heading of a T.Lo post. Is it fair to expect her to meet the same fashion standards as a Hollywood starlet or a pop star (whose job is to be provocative)? This is her work uniform, of course it’s boring.

      • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

        We’ve been spoiled by Fergie.

        • Coolekat

          I never saw Diana look boring.

          • J.W.

            There were many outfits that were twee however.

            • MRC210

              Oh, yes. The ruffles, the pie-crust or sailor collars, the plate-like hats. The polka dots. The horse-blanket coats. And later on, the power suits with the padded shoulders, as boring in their own way as Cathy’s little sheath dresses. Many of Diana’s looks that people remember were evening dresses: poufy, sparkly one-shouldered affairs by Bruce Oldfield or Catherine Walker. Her day dresses weren’t remarkable until after the divorce, when she started showing more skin and wearing Versace.

            • bitchybitchybitchy

              It took Diana time to find her look. She did go through some unfortunate style choices before she hit her stride.

            • Raspberry2012

              Plus, to be fair, most of that was the 80s.

            • bitchybitchybitchy

              Yes, there were a lot of crimes committed against fashion in that decade-mutton sleeves, beaded headbands on brides among them, and let us not forget the mullet.

            • J.W.

              Do you remember the mutton chop sleeves on the wedding dress?

            • bitchybitchybitchy

              Yes, I do. I also inherited my mom’s Bradford Exchange Diana wedding doll, with a faithful reproduction of those mutton sleeves. I also cop to owning a Franklin Mint Diana doll dressed in the “Elvis” dress-the strapless beaded long sheath with short-sleeve bolero jacket….Yes, I have a problem

            • imspinningaround

              The Elvis dress is one of the sickest outfits Diana ever wore. That look was OFF THE CHAIN.

            • bitchybitchybitchy

              I love that dress!

            • Bonnie Blue

              Don’t worry, I have my Diana wedding-dress commemmorative plate in my guest room, so it’s OK.

            • bitchybitchybitchy

              We’re good!

          • dulcinea86

            Fair enough. I’m not quite the right age to remember Diana’s fashion in its proper context…in photos her wardrobe always seems staid/stuffy to me, but I certainly understand that she was considered iconic in her era. I guess I just feel that royals, political spouses, etc are darned if they do/darned if they don’t, when it comes to making deliberately stylish choices.

            • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

              I think if you transported Kate back in time she would have been wearing exactly the same stuff Diana wore. It *was* iconic of the era but in much the same mould as Kate’s clothing – the very essence of appropriate dressing for the role. So definitely a bit boring, but seldom bad.

          • Fuchsiaforever

            True!

          • Aurumgirl

            So, so true. Nor, dare I say it, Camilla.

      • lunchcoma

        I compare her outfits against her previous choices and against the occasional things I see other royals wear, since I agree it’s not fair to compare her to professional entertainers. By those standards, this is a bit dull but not offensively so. She has worn more striking things, though.

        • CPK1

          Agreed. In her best looks she manages to look youthful while still looking sufficiently princessy for official engagements. She needs to dump those hideous shoes

      • EveEve

        If Queen Maxima of the Netherlands, and Queen Magrethe of Denmark can wear eye catching designs, so can the wife of the third-stringer to the British throne.
        Cathy is just plain boring, and she wears boring clothes and accessories. Sometimes the most interesting thing about her dresses is that the hems blow up in the wind and people can get a glimpse of upper thigh. Woo-bloody-hoo!

    • KateShouldBeWorking

      One incident or one bullet?

    • MilaXX

      This is a swing and a miss for me.The dart/boob detail is weird and minimizing on her in an unflattering way. The hair is too Brady Bunch looking. Usually I don’t mind her nude pumps, but this is just the cherry on the already bland & odd cake, so no bueno.

      • Grumpy Girl

        I love the description of the hair as “Brady Bunch”. Very on point.

      • Tracy_Flick

        I agree. The fabric is looking a bit heavy and leisure-suit poly, and that silver ring detail is tacky.

    • http://angrynerdgirl.net/ Jessi03

      “Doesn’t she look tired?”

      • MilaXX

      • FibonacciSequins

        “What did he say? What did he say!?”

        • scoobynacks

          So much love for this. We should all go on an adventure together and jazz up Cathy’s style.

          “Allons-y!”

    • dash1211

      Was she in Reno? Did she shoot him just to watch him die?

      • Glam Dixie

        Did she back over him with the car when she left?

    • Coolekat

      If it were her signature green or blue it would be much better. She owns those colors. Shoes are yuck. Much prefer her go to nude pumps with the little platform.

    • lunchcoma

      The bland shoes are so she can toss on a different dress and some big sunglasses and sneak off to have a torrid affair with Harry without anyone being distracted by daring footwear. Except one man was distracted by it. One very, very dead man.

    • mjude

      is it the color that offends thee TLO?

    • SuzyQuzey

      I hate this dress. It is unflattering and odd. Also, those are Jimmy Choos, allegedly.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork International Model

      I hope she’s going to go see Iona in Chinatown….

    • Angela

      Look at those heavy lids. Nanny or not, I blame George for this fashion miss. ;)

    • AuntyStephy

      it looks like the dress is grabbing her boobs.

      • FibonacciSequins

        I said the same thing. Jinx!

        • AuntyStephy

          double jinx no backsies! (even if you did post first.) ;)

          • FibonacciSequins

            1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 you owe me a Coke!

            You posted first. ;)

    • Denise Rambo

      I wonder how many pairs of those shoes she has?

    • Grumpy Girl

      She did need some sassy shoes to go with that dress. And how can it seem like she has on too much makeup, and yet I want her in lipstick? I think it’s that the color of the dress just doesn’t do her any favors. A softer pink would be better for her.

      • FibonacciSequins

        Her makeup game is not good. It looks like she wears a ton of foundation, and she needs to dial back on the eyeliner.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QFW22QV426LUOEPGASPZJWJMDE MishaFoomin

      Those hair curls are awful, and remind me of an anime character: Sally Po from Gundam Wing.

      I hear she regularly kicks the Queen’s Corgis down the stairs. and mocks their stub legs.

      • marlie

        Your “scandal” cracked me the hell up.

      • demidaemon

        Sally would have added some huge ass braids, which, for Cathy here, would have been HILARIOUS.

        This makes me want to see for anime hair on celebs just for the WTF entertainment factor.

    • nannypoo

      It doesn’t actually offend me. It’s just not good enough for her.

    • Thomas

      I like the dress. Classic and safe over a frankendress any day.

    • FibonacciSequins

      The only interesting thing about this is how there are claws grabbing her boobs.

    • TippiH

      Is it royal protocol that she can’t show her toes? For god’s sake, get her some darling strappy shoes!

      • TippiH

        Wait, maybe that’s the scandal….she has talons instead of toes

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          talons as well as the prehensile tail? Do tell!

        • kimmeister

          Webbed feet!

    • SewingSiren

      Goat dress , It just sounds weird.

    • suzq

      Hair cut. She should get a kicky haircut. And an ankle tat.

      • EveEve

        Oh, she has a tat alright. I’m not gonna tell you where it is (hint: there’s a reason why she likes her dresses to fly up so much. So far, not up enough…)

    • http://www.ellenciompi.com/ NurseEllen

      There’s something about Pippa…..

    • LadyVimes

      Boob pleats. Do not like.
      Scandal guess: She had a sordid below-stairs affair with a groomsman, but it turns out she’s just covering for Pippa.

    • Tracy_Flick

      Does she really have a “job”? I mean, can we call it a position or situation or a set if familial obligations?

      • marlie

        Perhaps it’s not as rigorous as a 9-5 job, but I still think it’s her “job” nonetheless, to support certain charities and to be the representative for the monarchy when appropriate. That’s why it’s a little bit more than “familial obligations” to me because they’re public. “Familial obligations” are showing up to great-aunt Hilda’s 86th birthday party in the church rec room, when you’d rather be spending the weekend at the beach with your friends.

    • Froggae

      “Shot a man” is no scandal. “Shot a man in Reno just to watch him die” … maybe. “Shot a man to stop him from revealing THE TRUTH about George’s paternity!” — THAT’S a scandal!

      That hair is atrocious. I picture her yelling to her hairdresser “make my head look both as flat and misshapen as possible!”

    • Hai Yen Nguyen

      Her dresses always look a bit off in the hip/bum area because she has such narrow hips. I wonder why she doesn’t get each dress tailored to fit perfectly? Or is a tighter fit too risqué for a princess?

    • Gatto Nero

      All that diagonal pleating looks fussy, and on such an unexciting dress.
      The putty shoes should be laid to rest.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      This is Cathy’s double, throwing us off the trail for her uncredited cameo in the new movie with Emma Thompson and Carlyle, in which Cathy dons a matching wig and a faux-cheetah skin coat over Naugahyde jeggings for that bender with Emma’s character. Cathy gets riproaring drunk and spills all the secrets of the Royals

    • GorgeousThings

      We heard she shot a man once.

      In the balls. With a crossbow. On a dare after watching GoT and drinking too much Drambuie at Balmoral over Christmas.

      • scoobynacks

        That sounds like the alternate ending for Downton Abbey series 3.

    • Pennymac

      The pink is the signature color of the charity “Impact Plus” that she was visiting. Its a charity that helps children who have addicted parents and is assisted by Comic Relief. Since I’m in recovery myself, and work in the treatment field, I’m going to defy the Great Uncles by saying I LOVE THIS COLOR PINK!

      • marlie

        There’s almost always some sort of subtle or hidden significance to the clothes or accessories she wears for these appearances. If you don’t know about the organization, you don’t necessarily know which details are of particular significance.

        Also, congrats on being in recovery.

      • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

        In that case YES to the pink, but no to the hair. And if she really wants to wear that shade of pink, she needs to ease off on the blush a little.

        • Grumpy Girl

          Yes, yes, yes. I still think a softer shade of pink would be better on her, but can certainly admire her charity-themed choice. Which means dial the blush waaaaaaaaaaaaay down.

      • decormaven

        Kudos for your recovery.

    • Janet B

      This is probably the most boringly awful dress she’s ever worn. She stole it from her hair stylist’s mother after seeing how dull her hair looked.

    • teensmom99

      If a dress every needed jewelry, this is it.

    • ShaoLinKitten

      I heard she had a bender in Vegas with Joe Manganiello. She did bumps of blow off his abs and he sniffed her neck riiiiiiiiiiiiiiight at the jawline. Will had her kidnapped by MI6 and brought back to London in a sack. She’s wearing this dress in protest.

      • t bell

        You gotta get a hold of that tape! It’s Vegas ; there must have been a camera somewhere in the room!

        • ShaoLinKitten

          If I did, I’m sure I’d be on the run, Snowden-style… either that or living like a king in Patagonia on the blackmail money.

      • CPK1

        Spicy!

    • bunnydiet

      She needs a new look and for sure a hair cut. The Shirley a Temple look is so unflattering on her. I wish she took more chances with fashion. Starting to get boring.

    • Imasewsure

      I’m actually fine with the shoes here. Her putty never really offends me for some reason. Looks perfectly fine with her perfectly fine princess wear I guess

    • Dreamwr8tr

      I don’t expect her to be interesting, but the darting is downright weird. And she could have an entire rainbow of shoes in the same make if she wanted to. I don’t think the color suits her. She needs softer eye-makeup because her makeup reads, “I need a nap.” And she probably does.

      I surmise she’s been ordered to make everyone forget that anyone sold privacy violating naked sunbathing pics of her on her honeymoon.

    • evave2

      The shoes do so much damage to the look. Is the look-book dress orange-y or is my color monitor off?

      The dress looks ok; how fashion forward should a bridge opening (or whatever) be?

    • Erica

      Well, since she’s evidently contractually required to wear hose, she needs to wear pumps, not sandals. Black pumps would have been OK, but detract from the dress. So, her favorite nude pumps it is. You can’t accuse this girl of not getting life out of some shoes! I read below that the color pink was on behalf of the organization she was visiting. I want to see a change in hairstyle, though.

    • Annistella

      She looks tired and tense. Well, as much as a princess is allowed to. Her slender physique following birth so quickly is remarkable – but not without cost I imagine and it shows.

    • ktr33

      why is everyone wearing wool all over the place? It’s a summery color, I guess, but it’s WOOL. And her hair is a little bump-it-y, but I’m also sort of relieved to not see it whipping around her face in the wind. When will she do a sport pony?!

      • ShaoLinKitten

        “When will she do a sport pony?” sounds like the beginnings of a rumor right there. Sorry, I have a really disgusting mind.

        • ktr33

          ACK! I meant a sportY pony, but far be it from me to judge your mind!

    • therealkuri

      I think with turquoise pumps and jewellery, this could have been wonderful instead of boring.

    • elzatelzabelz

      I have those earrings! That’s all. I just wanted to say that.

    • Mothra

      Even Princesses need a push up bra now and then.

    • DebbieLovesShoes

      I’m sounding like my mother here *shudder*, but doesn’t she look TOO THIN!??

    • quiltrx

      I guess even princesses don’t feel like washing their hair some days, and default to having someone make boring doo-doo curls with it.
      Funny, I thought the booby pleats were the only interesting thing.
      I heard she killed a guy in a flea market bathroom with a fireplace poker. And got ‘doody’ on her shoe. (come on out, Waters people…)

    • uprightcitizen

      I’ve always had a feeling I had seen her exact figure before (and in a way, her features) … that long-waisted, lanky frame. It just came to me. Kate Jackson! She should take a look at some of the clothes that they put on Sabrina Duncan (in the original “Charlie’s Angels”) because Sabrina always looked cool but completely effortless. Then again, I don’t suppose it would do for a princess to walk around in turtlenecks and bell bottoms all the time.

      • CPK1

        Looking back, I think Sabrina looks amazing. But when I was a kid, playing Charlie’s Angels (don’t ask), no one wanted to be her. Only Jill or Kelly.

        • uprightcitizen

          The show came out when I was in middle school, plus being a boy, I would have never “played” Charlie’s Angels, but I can totally see that. Jill and Kelly had cool hair to toss and didn’t have the unfortunate burden of being “the smart one.” ; ) I always felt bad for Sabrina because the other two got to drive Mustangs, and they stuck her with a crappy Pinto. Even at 12, I knew that wasn’t cool.

        • formerlyAnon

          Sabrina was my favorite. I wanted to be both gorgeous AND smart. (Not that she was all that brilliant, but she was supposed to be “the smart one” – you could tell because she wasn’t busty or blonde.)

    • annrr

      She got in a HUGE fight with the hubs, and is serving some “Don’t give a shit realness” Been there on a way smaller scale.

    • Kelly

      That hair is standing a bit too close to the edge of the Coal Miner’s Daughter cliff. Hate the shoes, but they aren’t her usual silly-putty standbys, are they? Don’t the standbys have bit of a platform and more height? Or did I just make that up?

      • http://www.snoskred.org/ Snoskred

        What Kate Wore has these as being the Jimmy Choo Gilbert heels. These are definitely not the LK Bennets. :) Those are a different shade of silly putty.

        • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

          ETA never mind – I see the point has already been well made.

    • Mona_Visa

      She’s wearing a Goat? That’s the most interesting thing about this look, actually.

    • demidaemon

      Her boobs look like they have handprints on them. NOT GOOD.

    • Zirza

      I like the dress but when I read GOAT DRESS my mind made up something much more fun.

    • MannahattaMamma

      Princess Scaryskinny. Like turn sideways disappear skinny. I am going with a scandal ala Diana: eating disorders, insomnia, failed pregnancies, maybe a secret attraction to her (female) stylist…

        Maybe stick with shooting a man. The bodysnarking is uncool.

      • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

        Body-snarking is not allowed and will result in getting banned from this comments section.

        • MannahattaMamma

          Wow, sorry. Didn’t mean to body-snark. Was more about worry that she’s gotten so thin. Point taken & will be more careful in future.

    • GeoDiva

      Her clutch is cute.

    • Innuendo

      Just imagine the shoes in yellow.

    • formerlyAnon

      She’s looking a little peaky. Maybe it’s just that the hair is unflattering and the daylight so bright. Or MAYBE: trouble in Paradise? The little nipper ill, and parents worried? Or, parents squabbling into the wee hours over time allocated to practicing with the polo team? OR is it very early first trimester morning sickness? Now THAT’s the rumor I’m going with.

    • MarissaLG

      Gonna be real picky for a minute- I don’t love that silver clasp on the belt. Makes the dress looks much less expensive than I’m sure it is.

    • bluefish

      Less snark about shooting folks would be a good move. Not funny or cool either. It can get pretty random up in here sometimes.

      This is a Jackie O look. A Jackie K look, I should say.

    • lobsterlen

      Never heard of a “goat belted dress”. Sounds sort of biblical … “and she came down from the mountain with a message wearing a goat belted dress.”

      • LadyLuck777

        I laughed.

    • Mr. J.

      I will now be bitten to death by enraged kittens and my lifeless body thrown in a ditch by the Uncles….BUT….the shoes are boring, she looks a little tired, her hair isn’t looking so hot….but she is, you know, a HUMAN BEING, and maybe she’s not feeling terrific and had a bad night and doesn’t totally feel like shaking hands. Yes, she is the most famous woman in the world, and it’s her job to shake hands and dazzle…..but she’s doing a good job. That’s also her job, even when she doesn’t feel like it or look her total best.

      Goodbye, cruel world.

        Oh, honey. We’re not so violent. Just expect lots of side-eye today.

      • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

        You could say the exact same thing about any other person we feature on this site.

    • elemspbee

      boring and creepy, the deflating boobs.

    • tereliz

      Great dress. I’d wear that to the office any day.

    • tallgirl1204

      Her worst day is so much better than my best day. But yeah, that is not her best look.

    • giddypony

      I his without love…I, a 50 year old matron in Reno NV would wear that dress. With a necklace. Can’t she throw on a tiara or something?

    • traceyishere

      She shot a man once and he is confined to an iron lung somewhere in India….where electricity is scarce….

    • Raspberry2012

      I think she looks fantastic, that’s a beautiful, fun color on her. But I also heard she ran the first legal brothel in Reno, so there’s that…

    • Aurumgirl

      Ooof. She’s been wearing some dowdy older woman’s clothing from the moment we laid eyes on her. You can say “demands of her job” and yada yada as much as you want, but it always looks like she’s wearing a costume. Not even a uniform, because let’s face it, everyone else in that family dresses more individualistically than she does and with much more flair. It’s like they took a robot girl, stuffed her in the clothes she’s supposed to wear, then sent her out to wave and smile and have babies.

      As long as that’s what she looks like, she will never have the authority and natural grace of her office. She’s not allowed to be who she is, or at least that’s what it looks like is happening here. And if that’s the case with this woman, then wow, hope the job pays extremely well somehow.

    • gingerella

      I use pictures of CC to show my fashion-conscious daughter that being royal is not all it’s cracked up to be, because these are the clothes she has to wear. It’s worked like a charm.

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      She looks exhausted. Do you think she is getting up at night with the baby?

    • Jecca2244

      i’m going to say it…she needs a new hair stylist.

    • Оля Берёза

      No one can be perfect all the time :))

    • http://birdybegins.blogspot.co.uk/ Eleanorjane

      There’s store/designer called ‘Goat’?! Unfortunate. And yes, that dress isn’t a flattering fit (especially around the bust). A bit too safe, I think.

    • Accademia di Moda

      The outfit may be boring, but that color is absolutely stunning! Love the bright and vivid pink combined with a neutral pump!

    • bluefish

      I’m going to say it again and you can ban me again. The fact that Tom is bored and whatever else doesn’t mean that you get to talk about public figures and gun shots again. Find another way to display your ennui. And yeah I get the pop culture reference. You’ve both gotten super lazy and seem to have not much respect for your readers. Take the gunshot stuff down, Lana Turner.

    • MichelleRafter

      Is it just me, or does she look thinner than ever? Wonder if royal duties are getting to her.

    • Avray

      56p a year is way, way too expensive for each British taxpayer to pay to have a woman with ringlets represent them. Sorry.

    • Andrea Lentz

      there is nothing boring about being this flawless :)

    • BLauDGaspode

      Looks like that guy shaking her hands is yawning – even he is bored. Her makeup, especially around the eyes, is aging her terribly.
