I don't like the overall combo. There is something about the dress that screams "cocktail" to me. Plus given the weather, it just didn't work. If I had been her, I would have called an audible and done a last minute change. I'm sure she would have had another appropriate dress that would have worked with the coat, hat and gloves.

Mary is so lovely, she can hardly go wrong. But this outfit whispers "just a little fussy" to me.

The coat and the dress are lovely, but it didn't get the purplish colored hat. For some reason the outfit didn't flow from the neck up.

Yes, Mary was on the VF best dressed list in 2010. And I for one liked this combination. Mary rarely misses, and shows a good bit of "dash" in putting outfits together. She has the confidence to carry this off, even if there are those among us who might question one or another element of this particular outfit.

Mary looks elegant. The only piece I could do without are the gloves.

When Mary's clothes remain consistent with current trends, are of the finest quality and have been worn only once or twice previously, it would be considerably neglectful of her to not recycle.

She isn't so frivolous as some would have her be, thank goodness.

The combination of the coat and dress is lovely but I find the purple hat and the pinkish gloves a bit too much. You had pink, purple, nude, black going on. Nude gloves would've worked very well.

I htink I agree just a bit too much all together. The gloves are also too heavy for the outfit. IMO I also don't like that much lace for day.

I agree with Susanna and Ceci on this. I love the combination and classy look of this outfit. This coat would look good with almost anything. Last time she wore it her hat was black.

Agreed.
Most parts of this outfit are elegant separately, but together it's just too much. Too many different colors and shades for me.

I actually think the coat would look better with a black hat.

I love the dress! Hasn't Mary worn the dress before or is it new?

I'm thinking a new dress here? She's look lovely. It's a real shame, she's not in Russia right now.
