Some days ago, I found Marie-Chantal on the photos looking rather worried amd felt pity with her.

What sort of photos were they?? I do not particularly like the lady but I have no ill feelings towards her either. She is just too much with all those statements of perfection. It goes under my skin.

I think that Tilla may mean the photo of Marie Chantal arriving at Prince Charles' 60th birthday party.

Did she look worried?? It may have been because she looked a tad too much like Madonna than herself!!!!!!!??????

Or maybe because she knew that she looked terrible that night.

Oh God!!! I just saw MC' s dress... and the haircut... The first, a complete disaster. What to say when you think that she is a designer herself...? The haircut? Ok! Anyone has the right to make mistakes! I liked Mary' dress, although a little heavy, I think that it suits her. And her haircut was very nice.

Everyone is entitled to an off day. However someone like MC who did not make any faux pas since she burst on the royal scene, the few last appearances are unfortunate to say the least.
Perhaps she should urge Valentino to come out of retirement again, soon.....The dress she wore at the opening of the latest boutique in London was nothing to rave about either...

Okay, I know I am in the minority here, but I really don't think she looked bad at all for P. Charles' party. I felt the wild hair was a break from the everything-in-its-proper-place Martha Stewart coif. It wasn't outrageous. I liked the gown. I like dark fabrics on fair-colored people, esp. for something formal. Perhaps there was a slight - albeit very slight - resemblence to Madonna, but I highly doubt that was the look MC was going for. I will agree with the comments she didn't look like she was having a good time - at least in the photo of her in the car. But it's hard to make a clear assessment on something based on one snap shot.

They seem to believe it.I still see many blogs repeating it...
What can I say?Having 2 daughters married princes,you've got to be someone and when you're not,you have to "think" of something ...so there you go
This expression emanates from a long time ago, when at a party she landed in a balloon, dressed as an Incan Princess!

Sorry guys but i've taken out the latest round of ridiculous speculation as none of us know who (if anyone) Marie Chantal doesn't speak to at parties.

The ancestry of Marie Chantal's mother is discussed at length in the two Miller Family threads.

Everybody has a right to have an off day. Even Marie Chantal.

The last annual issue of Life & Style (December 2008) just came out.It has the "Best Dressed of 2008":Pavlos and Marie-Chantal were both in.Nikolaos also made it (they mentioned his sur mesure suits and silk scarves).There was Anna-Maria as well and last but not least,Princess Olga(my favourite).It was mentioned that she wore a Venetian-style wedding dress designed by Prada I always thought it wasn't traditional Greek,so no more wondering...
No other royal members on the list...maybe next year

Indeed, Olga made the difference.
I saw the magazine and all the photos are fantastic. I really liked Anna Maria, she is truly elegant and stylish.
However, I didn' t like Marie Chantal, especially the photo in the first pages of the magazine, although she was supposed to be natural and not at all heavily dressed....

Have you noticed the grey-light blue suit with the skirt (the one with the black lace) Anna-Maria was wearing?Well,she has worn it twice:at Arietta's christening and later,in 2005,at Pr.Charles' wedding.
I didn't like MC with the silk light green gown.She was photographed with Valentino in that picture.It was also mentioned that she likes wearing Chanel and Chloe....what else?

Iakynthi, you make my mouth water talking about those pictures in this magazine we

I agree with you.

In my opinion:
The woman most elegant of the family is Queen Ann Marie.
I think that, the elegance is not wears with a expensive dress of a famous designer.
the elegance is "one way to be", "one way to behave", "One way to behave in the presence of the various spontaneous circumstances"
The elegance is not repeat or not repeat a dress, elegance is how to take a dress. The dress does not lead to the woman, the woman is wearing the dress, I mean with it, the dress does not make elegant to a woman,
it is the reverse, the woman make to the dress elegant, with their gesture, with their movement of hands, with their way to go.....

A symbol of elegance are the gloves, the standards protocol say when the women should put gloves, when should put only one ,when should withdraw it.
The Queen Ann Marie carries to the perfection the standards protocol about gloves..
Her gestures are very delicate, her movements, her way of walk...it is a all.
I think that the list of the magazine is not fair.
Queen Ann Marie is a woman of 62 years, her elegance can not be compared with MC .Mc is 40 years .. The age determines a different concept of elegance, The Queen of England with 80 years is a very elegant, if the Queen of England get dressed the dresses MC, she will be horrible, and if MC get dressed with clothing from the Queen of England, she will be horrible..
Finally, I think that Queen Ann Marie is very elegant.
I think that Mc is very elegant.She deserves be into list of women most elegants.But, I think, that she need more protocol.

Lovely photos! Olympia looks more grown-up than in the photos from the store opening a few months ago. It is nice to see them out together.

Does anyone know how Pavlos's hedgefund is doing, or if he's still got it? The reason I ask is I just read an article in the January issue of 'Vanity Fair' called 'Profiles in Panic' about Wall Street and the world of the Big Rich collapsing. It talks about hedgefund managers trying to sell their luxury homes while the trophy wives are hocking their jewelry. It made me think of Pavlos and the hedgefund he had going with Prince Alexander von Furstenburg.

Thanks for the photos, Ice! I agree, MO looks very grown up. She's losing the little girl look and is noticeably more of a teenager (tho I know she's not quite there yet). Her face seems to be filling out a bit and I want to say she's starting to resemble her aunt Theodora a bit. I like the bag she's carrying. I'm sure she'll be a fashionista as she gets older. MC looks very nice. Everyone should be happy to see she's back to her trademark hair-style.
