I think she looks her age. I find her pretty, and I love her style in clothes. She does indeed look tired a lot of the time but I think so do a lot of young women with an active life...

I certainly hope more of her classic style runs down towards the bottom end of the fashion market. I have been waiting for a long time for someone who actually wears clothes I like with a high profile. It might make shopping for clothes less unpleasant for me who hates fashion and shopping. She has timeless, classic style but with nice little modern touches which I find quite charming.

I must say as a Republican ( in the British sense , ie : opposed to a Monarchic system)I find her a good role model and she has definitely brought in a huge breath of fresh air to this dusty and outdated institution.

I am against her position but would find it hard to find fault with her as a person so far. She has conducted herself with grace, dignity and charm so far and I pray the paparazzi and their blood sucking audiences will leave the poor woman alone, especially now she is expecting. She deserves privacy.

And BTW 40 is not old, thank you all the same !

IMO, she is an attractive woman. and i wish her the best with her pregnancy and future life. But she is not young.
Huh but Kimmy looks hawt, is older, and shes pregnant too (or is she?). Katey fine too, but she looks like she's in her mid 30s compared to her:

Will the real Kim Kardashian please stand up? Not disputing Kim Kardashian is hot in full makeup though.

I think Kate Middleton looks more like herself without makeup on as it were.

FYI: generally speaking, people with a natural darker complexion (read as more melanin) age better than people who are naturally lighter.

So if you are lighter...you really need to be more agressive on the antiaging front. Wear sunscreen. Drink water. And start using the "serums" and anti-aging products early.

One of my closest friends has a similar skin tone to Kate M. She is 32. She looks much younger than Kate does. She has been wearing sunscreen and using anti-aging stuff since I met her a age 18. Her mom started on the anti-aging bandwagon in her mid 40s. She is now in her late 50s, and looks about her age. But she is also from the generation that did a lot of sunbathing. These two ladies swear by Chanel skin care and are aging well, especially factoring in their naturally super fair skin.

If you have fair skin, it is a good plan to limit your sun exposure. For darker women as well, but we have it easier.

Kim's had so much Botox and lip filler that she looks to be well over her actual age. Thank you, Kate, for not indulging in that. (Without make-up, Kate would probably look like a kid herself. She's probably not allowed to be seen in public without it.)

Well, Prince William chose her. She's royalty now and has to carry herself accordingly (maybe why she was chosen in the first place), so she doesn't come across as youthful/playful as someone without her responsibilities. She'll live a very different life than that of Kim K. and will be in the history books for hundreds of years to follow along with all the other kings, queens, princesses, princes, etc. Kim will not - most actors, actresses, and models are forgotten after a few generations.
So it appears that Kate is the choice among royalty and Kim is the choice of commoners. "Thems the breaks!" as the old-timers say.

It isn't surprising to see that teen and twenty-somethings view someone older than them as 'old.' I did too. And it also isn't surprising that older people view someone younger than them as 'young for their age.' Although, poor Jason Segel looks like he's in his mid-40's to me. And Jason Sudekis does, too. Some people have baby faces, some do not.

You forgtot to take away the hair extensions for both Beyonce AND Kim.

Come on,let's see them in all their glory... pull it ALL off.
People are not being realistic with this.....
I know that Beyonce and Kim have dark circles,when I saw pics of them without makeup.

I'm willing to bet once we pull the hair off those two,and then compare...
Kate will come out number 1.
I like Kate,she hasn't shown up butt naked and dancing on stage,and still can't catch a break.
But I think she looks her age,but I guess not wearing hoe wear makes her seem older to some.

I guess most people would chose to be a busted,ugly 18 year old over a beautiful 31 year old?
I know plenty of beautiful older women and ugly younger women.
The beautiful older women(who looked their age) still got more male attention than the busted younger women.
