What was Rachida Dati thinking? Her outfit was poorly-chosen. I wish she wore something more soft and feminine.
It's really horrible...and black...

I thought that CP Mathilde of Belgium and Princess Claire of Belgium looked very elegant. I was not impressed with the bridal gown. The train was pretty, but that blue bow on the front looked out of place.

Camilla of Boubon Sicily looked like a Barbie doll. Not an elegant look.

I loved the church! The blue draping on the entrance was very pretty.

I agree, Boris

The dress itself is nothing out of the common... I believe it's a strapless, which they decided to cover with this exquisitively embroidered jacket. It's very Lacroix indeed, but overall, the coloured jacket, the blue ribon and the tacky tiara just looks busy and unclassy... IMO, that is.

Is this lady is the Duchess of Montpensier? I liked her powdery violet ensemble.

No, the Duchess of Montpensier was taken in hospital yesterday. The lady with jean in the photo is Princess Marie Christine vuz Liechtenstein, aunt of the groom and sister of the Duchess.

Thanks for the information! Prince Jean bears some resemblance to his aunt. That is why I thought the lady was his mother. I hope there is nothing serious with the Duchess of Montpensier.

Has anyone seen Emmanuele Filiberto and Clotilde de Savoie or Aymone and Olga de Savoie ? I thought they were on the guests list ?

Duke and Duchess of Wurtemberg

What is the deal with the Duchess's hat? I don't think I've ever seen anything like it. And I assume that's a fur wrap, but I don't know... another "never seen anything like it."

Wasn't enamored with the gown either. I think Mr. Lacroix had too many things going on.

Clotilde di Savoia was in the guestlist; I don't know if Aimone and Olga were too, I thought yes because he is a cousin of the groom, but...I don't know...

It seems to have been a lovely, sunny day. Does anybody know why the duchess of Montpensier was taken to the hospital? I hope it isn't anything too serious?

-
Nice to so that so many of the Orleans family attended! Even the count of La Marche was there, with his mother! But also several Schonborn-Buchheims and 3 children of princess Anne were present.

The more I look at photos, the more I like her dress. The gold embroidered jacket is unusual, but I think it fit with the setting and the grandeur of the event.
