Is there more pictures of Mary with that dress, when entering the party or so?! Mathilde is using that gorgeous one but we already had seen pics of it, but not Mary's.

Let's wait for more detailed news on the event...

mtbcm :)

As far as I'm aware (and I've looked!) there are no pictures of Mary entering the party.

After looking at all these photos from Luxemburg, I think that "La belle du bal ", was Infanta Elena, so royal, so regal, lovely dress,for me she was the best of all.

I love Mary's dress!

And to answer a previous question...yes Mary has met Letizia when the latter attended her wedding in Denmark.

For me, Mary was definitely the belle of the ball! She's really the first thing you notice in the picture!

Yeah, I agree with you 100%. Mary looked WONDERFUL!!!!!!:)

Mary's hair looks really nice and youthful with the red flower in her hair swept to one side. Very glamorous and very "Carmen"!

Mary's dress is very spectacular and very beautiful. It suits Mary to perfection. It is lively, youthful, and summery.

IMO, Mary looks more vibrant, elegant, stunning and exotic than anyone else. Mary is really "the queen" of the evening.

Princess Kalina's appearance

HRH Princess Kalina of Bulgaria really is a wonderful lady. She has had a severe illness which needed heavy medication and even her nose needed major surgery due to infection.

The Princess has a remarkable taste indeed, but she is a regular guest at royal events, mainly in Spain and Italy. In the 80's and 90's she really was one of the royal beauties walking around. Her 'weird' appearance is partly her not-mainstream taste but also part a result of serious illness.

And I just love how they have included everything from MT's cool relationship with J-C to Henri's supposed affair with Lydia Polfer in it. A little vindictive, if I may say :p

I don't know what think about this group-photo. I like them all, but they looks strange here.
Maybe that's fault of the lights or that's bad copy on the cover that they all looks artificial, unnaturally. That's only my opinion.

Btw. It's good to see former GD Jean.
