I love Mary's red coat. The black accesories were a lovely complement. I thought Kate's boots were brown suede.

Which part of it is not her usual style?

She has several hats in the same style, she has worn the turtle-neck several times and she had a very similar coat in a different colour years ago.

Mary was really elegant, she looks fine in red. The coat is lovely and I also like the black headpiece

Really!!!! I beg to differ...Mary wore a red coat with black stockings and shoes on February 1, 2007!!!!!!!!!!!

So CP Mary wore a red coat a loooooooooooong time before the Duchess of Cambridge wore one!
Maybe Catherine researched CP Mary's style and chose a red coat to imitate Mary! LOL!!! (just joking)! But seriously, anybody can wear a red coat!

I agree, Terri...red coat and black everything else is a classic combo...no-one has any claim to 'the look'...but all this Mary/Kate comparison was probably a case of bad timing/or worn too soon after the Cambridges visit...or maybe Mary knew exactly what she was doing and subscribed to the old adage 'any publicity is good publicity' Make all the comparisons you want (press/forums) but I know I do it (wear red coats) better (so says Mary)... :) Good on her!

The red trench is fantastic, a great coat and Mary is slim enough to wear such a coat.
Her Hair and hat also look terrific.
For the record, i thought her outfit for the UNICEF visit could have been even more understated, for example, a pantsuit, in the fabric that she wore for the pants. The harsh looking jacket looked to me as if she had just looked around and found something. Catherine's coat and especially belt, looked really crazy imo.

There's really no comparison; Mary has a natural regalness and elegance about her.

I really think its a pretty coat, very in season and a classic piece to any wardrobe IMO. I like the little hat with the look. Overall is simple and just what this event needed.
The DvF coat also comes in cream - Leighton Meester wore the cream version on the set of Gossip Girl on October 28th.

Leighton Meester ** Princess Mary

Both colours look really elegant - a great winter wardrobe staple.

As the outfits have been compared in a way, I have to say that I definitely prefer Mary's red coat to Kate's red coat. Mary didn't put a an ugly/outdated/tacky looking belt to her coat like Kate did and I think this shade of red is absolutely right and flattering for her. Overall I really like this outfit (one of Mary's best outfits this year, IMO) and I thought her hat looked cute.

That cream outfit is beautiful, I think Mary would suit that too.

I don't like that this big scarf covers the jacket. But suit is nice, I like the color. She wore one of my favorite earrings belonging to her.

The suit is Prada, very classy. Mary looks great, not liking the choice of snakeskin shoes though.
