Trip, I agree with you. As it is she looks like a "sour puss."

You can certainly tell it is her, but she does look older in the portrait...

She is in her twenties right. Cause she looks 50 in that picture. The artist put bags under her eyes, thinned out her lips and gave her winkles around her mouth. Also he gave her a fivehead instead of a forehead and made her face shape too long. She has a Oval face not a Oblong face. Plus she had some cute dimples that artist missed completed. See picture below for the real Kate.

Be honest this was paint by numbers right. The royal family didn't pay this clown for this picture did they. If so I vote off with his head.

I like katlady's photo much better than the portrait, which does not look like her at all...too old, and too much like Celine Dion!

I'm an amateur sculptor and I think I was closer with my likeness then this clown. I did to sculptors of two actors. For the record I can't draw or paint at all. So If she needs a bust done have her call me. But she will have to be patient cause I'm really slow. Experience probably helps with that.

Actor Jared Padalecki

My version not prefect I agree but you can tell it's him I hope.

This one was harder. Again I still think I'm closer.

With today's technology, why do we need portraits?

People in the higher economic levels, as well as different regions of the country, have portraits commisioned. Look at back of Southern Living Magazine,and you will see many many ads from artists, with pictures of there work.

LF, they must use those phones as planters

His 6 foot 4 inch love child with the amazing arms, pecs and 6 pack Abs. That man shirtless is like wow. Makes Ryan Reynolds look like he needs to hit the gym.

I do miss the Rotary phones. So elegant and beautiful. Plus they made the awesome sound. I hate my cordless phones.

The only person's opinion that matters is the Duchess herself. If she likes it, and it is reported that she does, then hers is the only opinion that matters. Do I think it makes her look a little older, yes, but she is still beautiful in the portrait.

Short of being photographed in the nude, the Duchess is required and expected to be completely pleased with pretty much everything that goes on in her life.
Of COURSE she likes it.....

edited to add: I think the artist was trying for a "Mona Lisa smile" here. Give us something to talk about.

What a shame to make that gorgeous woman look like that.

She (to me)has always been sort of a plain Jane even on her best day. One post mentioned Kate Winslet, ok or even Kate Hudson.
