the mentioned docx file
I visited office.com and created the attached document to see how well it would open in libreoffice and the title of the page is rendering as Cambria Italic rather than just Cambria Regular, as regular is not listed under font style.

Side by side 4.3 dev and MS Office 2013
Can't confirm that. I do see that the image is not as beatiful as on Word, but for that please open another bug
Sorry for the typo *beautiful...
Maybe its fine on windows but it isnt on linux. I just tested 4.3 dev and its no different. Have attached for confirmation.

libO 4.3 on linux is the same
I wasnt thinking to submit a bug reprort for the image as i thought it would be low priority at the moment as ms office has alot of image effects. Just a note, when i right-clicked on the image in 4.3 and selected 'Picture...' the dialog wouldnt fully load.
I know the question is silly, but is the font installe. Can a program (!LibO) use the regular version? If so, bug otherwise WORKSFORME. You are right with the pic :)
Yes the font is installed and shows up correctly in kingsoft writer. If i had to track down the problem, i would possibly say that its because cambria regular comes with the extension .ttc rather than .ttf, as seen in the attachment.

cambria regular installed
Screenshot in comment #2 suggests you do not have the regular variant installed. Please attach output of 'fc-list'.
Also, if you simply create a new document, can you use the regular variant of the font there?
I'm able to select cambria regular in kingsoft writer and calligra words, only not able to select it in libreoffice writer. I have attached the output of fc-list and "Calibri:style=Regular" is listed.

output of fc-list
sorry i meant "Cambria:style=Regular"
I have the same result (NOT reproducible) as Florian R. (comment 2)
Tested using Windows 8.1 with LibreOffice Version: 22.214.171.124.alpha1+
Build ID: f4a6837025a293312cbc43b9c527851362f11030

As previously stated, this seems to be a non-windows issue. :)
This is because LibreOffice does not support TrueType Collection fonts (TTC) under Linux. So, it can’t render Cambria Regular (which is contained in a TTC file together with Cambria Math).
Weird that the OS can handle it and so do other linux office suites but LibO cant bring it in.
I can reproduce this with 3.5, so I suspect this is OOo-inherited.
