Duchess of Cambridge dresses
tiny bump in £298 MaxMara
wrap dress for official
outing... but dazzles with a
diamond necklace that
costs TEN TIMES as much

Daily Mail (UK), by Deborah Arthurs

The Duchess of Cambridge returned to the day job after a relaxing holiday on the island of Mustique today - and she looked the picture of health this morning as she attended an official engagement in London, her tiny bump highlighted with a flattering wrap dress. The Duchess, making her first appearance since returning from her break last week - and for the first time at an official engagement with a baby bump - chose a black and white MaxMara Studio dress from the 2011 collection, decided to forgo a coat, despite the chill in the air, and accessorised

Those wrap dresses are knockoffs/adaptations of a style that new designer Diane Von Furstenberg introduced in the mid-70s. Flattering on anyone with a good, slender figure, they were available in a wide array of very attractive prints. Some had a laid back collar and cuffs that turned back. Perfect for business, perfect for traveling. They were a huge success.

They no longer have a collar nor the turn-back cuffs, but are otherwise the same dress.

Here is one example of the original from the Metropolitan Museum of Art:

DVF also brought them back a few years ago.

You won´t see Mooch in these because they are awful on anyone with a big butt.

What is the big deal about a $2800 diamond pendant? Many women have them. I have one that I´m sure cost close to that. ?????

BTW, Kate is a tall girl. At 5´10, she is only an inch shorter than Moochelle.

What a difference, no?

I have a diamond pendant that has been appraised at $5000.00.

Agree, #1, that famous wrap dress of DVF never goes out of style. Thanks for the link to a beautiful dress.

Wrap dresses are very flattering, but dear Kate is terribly thin. Still, I think she´s one of those naturally skinny women. I hope the baby is well.

What a beautiful woman. Will is a lucky guy indeed.

I don´t understand the DM hyperventilating about the necklace costing 10 TIMES AS MUCH as the $298 dress. That´s only $2,900. Not much for a duchess. My wife has a piece or two in that range and I am most certainly not an heir to the Throne of England. More the opposite.

Kate is a knockout and represents her country well, whatever she wears.

She has beauty, class, manners, good taste and knows how to dress and conduct herself appropriately for any occasion.

We get stuck with Big Moo who has none of the above.

She looks beautiful. My SIL, who was always stick thin, never gained much weight in pregnancy. She blossomed quickly, though and by the end of her pregnancy, her profile looked like she had swallowed two softballs and a basketball. I suspect it will be the same with Catherine. All of the sudden, she will bloom and people will leave her alone about being "underweight."

#8. No, not naturally that thin. When she was just "Kate" and before intense photog scrutiny when things heated up with the Prince, she was never this thin. The camera adds 10 lbs., and now that she really is a standout fashion wise, she intends to be very thin. I don´t blame her at all. She is a wonderful asset to her husband and the Firm -

Those who are fretting about her weight seem to have forgotten that she lost weight before they married. And then she was so ill with morning sickness in the early weeks (months?) of her pregnancy that at one point she had to be hospitalized for some days.

I love looking at her. She is fresh and lovely. Her maternity wear is more discreet than so much I see that "clutch" at the tummy rather than draping it.

William reminds us so much of his mother. The two of them also remind us of what *could* have been with his parents´ marriage, if Diana had been given a fair chance from Charles and family.

#9, perhaps not an heir to the Throne, but if your wife has several pieces of jewelry like that, most ladies would say you´re a prince!

I detest the use of the term "bump." Kate looks lovely, and saying she´s protective of her "bump" is ugly phrasing.

A few years ago I participated in a radio debate on "white privilege" with a certain man, whose name is unimportant, who had a Ph.D. in "ethnic studies." At one point he introduced an argument by saying, "If whites are 80 percent of the population...," which prompted me to interject and point out that whites (non-Hispanic) are now only 63 percent of America. Of course, you might think that someone with a doctorate in "ethnic studies" would know what the ethnic and racial composition of the country is.

President Obama’s remark that “We’ve got close to seven million Americans who have access to health care for the first time because of Medicaid expansion” achieved the dubious assessment of Four Pinocchios from "The Fact Checker" (a.k.a. "The Truth Behind the Rhetoric" by Glenn Kessler of The Washington Post). Four Pinocchios designates the highest form of prevarication one can commit on The Fact Checker scale. Simply put, Obama told a “Whopper.” The seven million figure, according to Kessler, most likely comes from the 6.3 million people that were deemed eligible for Medicaid from October 1 to December 31, 2013.

MANILA, Philippines— Police clashed briefly in the Philippine capital Tuesday with about 300 protesters opposed to a planned visit by President Barack Obama and continued U.S. military presence in the country. Riot police holding up shields across a road from the U.S. Embassy were pushed back by the demonstrators, prompting the police to retaliate with truncheons. Carrying placards saying "US troops out now" and "Obama not welcome," the protesters allied with the May One Movement workers´ federation were able to hold a brief program of speeches denouncing U.S. imperialism in front of the seaside embassy before dispersing peacefully.

Bill Maher, a famous purveyor of the politically correct who usually throws spitballs at conservatives, Christians and traditional values, thinks the Internet has destroyed the American culture. He would even bring back newspapers.

The administration is quietly introducing “policies that would undermine the integrity and success of the Medicare Part D program” according to the subcommittee. President Bush signed Medicare Part D into law in 2003 to subsidize prescription drug costs for Medicare beneficiaries.

The Obama administration warned Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday not to react too aggressively to the fast-moving developments in Ukraine, where pro-Western demonstrators forced the nation’s Moscow-backed president from power over the weekend. National Security Adviser Susan E. Rice said the situation unfolding in Kiev “reflects the will of the Ukrainian people and the interests of the United States and Europe,” and that Russia would be making a “grave mistake” if it sends in military forces to try to reverse the developments — or to seize control of pro-Moscow eastern Ukraine.
