Can a princess dress too racy?

That's the question raised by USWeekly.com in a post about a red carpet event Kate attended in London last week at the BOA Olympic Concert, where she appeared in an emerald Jenny Packham pleated gown featuring a low-cut neckline and a sheer, lace back (see pic at left).

USWeekly.com described it as a "racier-than-normal number" for the style icon, who attended the event with Will, and suggested she "stepped outside of her style and beauty comfort zone."

They also asked, "Do you think this dress was an appropriate look for the royal to wear?"
So what do you think? Not conservative enough for a princess? Or just let her dress the way she wants and experiment, and create her own modern-day version of a "princess"?
