Harsh? Maybe, but what we love about the Labor Day star is her penchant for colorful, curve-enhancing frocks that let her personality shine. This square frock is what a PTA president wears to a retirement party! Not that we're saying the Duchess of Cambridge dresses like a suburban mom. She probably wouldn't wear this Narciso Rodriguez look either.
It's not only that the black-and-white combo is more boring than we expect from this blonde beauty. The proportions on the top vs. bottom are way off! It's like Kate is wearing a white t-shirt under a black strapless dress. And despite how hard it tries, the wild fascinator isn't distracting from the overall look.
Maybe Kate-the-actress could have a sit-down with Kate-the-royal to talk style shop? Kate W could teach Kate M how to wear red, and Kate M could teach Kate W how to never wear this dress again!
