|At 5'10" Kate doesn't shy away from wearing high heels. (A few reports say she's actually 5'8 1/2" sans heels.)|
I am an unabashed Kate Middleton fan. I know we are supposed to call her Catherine, but she's Kate because we love her.
Previously I stated that Kate can do no wrong. From all accounts, she has intelligence, a level head, a kind heart, a strong work ethic and is, without fail, an asset everywhere she goes.
One place Kate went recently was a formal dinner in London with Prince William at Mayfair's Claridge's Hotel.

Kate looked smashing, wearing a cream colored, long, to-the-floor, gown believed to be designed by Roland Mouret. Wow, did she kill it! Her understated gown had a high neckline and long sleeves, as well as, a thigh high slit to show off a pair of lovely, bare legs. What I love most about Kate's style is this: She is always classy, totally practical and never boring. She stands out without being showy. Her dazzling crystal [not diamond] earrings, crimson pedicure and shimmering, Jimmy Choo, 5 ½-inch-high sandals perfectly complement her elegant, simple dress.

The Duchess famously does her own makeup (said to be foundation and eye showdow by Bobbi Brown. Love B.B.!). The natural earth tones Kate favors balance her high impact red nails and glitter assessories. HRH is flawless and a role model for anyone needing a primer on looking glamorous.
London friends are reporting they are having the coldest May since 1698; therefore, Kate needs her long sleeves and is wise enough to wear them. Brrrr!
