    Dumb question eh? But the word portrait isn't usually used for a photo.

    Weird. When I think of a potrait, I think of a photo before a painting.

    Portrait photography is many photographers specialty. And even places like Sears, Walmart, JC Penny advertise "Portrait Studios".

    David Bailey is also famous for taking portrait photos of the rich and/or famous. The article linked does sTate in the second paragraph that this is a picture rather than a painting.

    Personally I think it is nice to see the Queen smiling like that - must be the length of Kate's hemlines

    Yeah, dumb bells....or an extra set of hands. Michelle Obama had a similar problem debarking in a skirt....POTUS to the rescue!

    I agree HM does have a wonderful smile, but the use of a short lens distorts her face too much for my liking. This photo was always one of my favourites.

    The Duchess and an actress wear the same dress: https://celebrity.yahoo.com/news/kat...us-weekly.html

    Who wore it best? I have an opinion--do you? Love the dress, btw, so good for spring.

    Ah, I did wonder why the top half of the Queen's head looks smaller than the bottom half - why on earth did he do that? It's like a vague caricature and just odd. I don't like the photo for that reason.

    And Kate wore the blue poppy dress best

    I think Kate and Mindy both look very nice. Without seeing shoes, it is tough to say who is styled better.

    The photo of him holding down the back of her skirt just makes it look like he's grabbing her butt. And a Kate Middleton moment? Has no other woman in history had a skirt fly up before?

    ITA, no contest. But for some reason I don't love her second eyelet dress she wore to the Zoo: http://a.abcnews.com/images/Entertai...11x16_1600.jpg

    That is, I like everything about it but the sleeves. Perhaps if it were sleeveless or the sleeves were not so wide...

    I think the dress looks good on Kate. But Mindy looks smashing in it. The picture is not great, but from what i can see the dress beautifully accentuates Mindy's curves and her curves beautifully accentuate the design of the dress. So for me, the dress looks better on Mindy.

    The dress is fitted to/on the Duchess.

    Mindy, unfortunately, looks as though she has been "stuffed" into it.
    It doesn't flatter her at all, IMO.

    ^^^ Yes, that is what I think too. Mindy doesn't benefit from the horizontal design at the waist either, it draws the eye sideways and makes her look wider.

    Looking awefully cute in Earth tones. This dress looks familiar or am I inventing things?

    Just as there's no "the" in Ukraine, there's no "the" in Ayers Rock.

    And it's more PC to use its original Aboriginal name, Uluru.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    OK, they were at Ayers Rock. Thank you for the correction. These little things drive the native crazeee. Something small but nonetheless, important.

    Yep. Kate crushes that "competition." The dress is completely wrong--I'm sure Mindy (whoever she is) is not a large woman but the dress makes her look huge.
