Thanks for letting me know the prior occasion Mary wore her hat, but I didn't say that she never wore it before, just that the style reminds me of ones the Duchess of Cambridge and Countess of Wessex had worn as well. Personally, I don't care for these type of fascinator/satellite-dish hats; just too OTT for me. But she did look beautiful.

Mary was her normal polished self at the christening of Princess Estelle. I thought that she herself looked beautiful. I appreciate that there was a sense of regal elegance to her outfit, but it does not work for me. I like the mix of white and gold, just not this particular combination – for me the dress and coat are lovely, are elegant and sophisticated, but not together. I do not like the hat, but the shoes are nice! Mary (and/or her stylist) has a fantastic flair for recycling, but I personally like this dress on the other occasions that it has been worn.

IMO the christening in Sweden outfit is amazing. I love the colour choices th statr with the bag is a knockout. The dress I love and itis so very understated. Love the shoes and I love the little "hat" I am a sucker for the flowers and hat combo.

I don't know how they do it! Looks like some serious foot pain not to mention how well you can walk on tip toes!

I shudder when they walk on uneven surfaces and where heels can get caught, like cobblestones.

I agree; the dress itself is just average, but the belt (and matching shoes) just manages to save it.

The stripes make my eyes hurt. Too busy. The belt is very nice, however.

Navy and white always great, belt with nautical motif makes it.

The dress is okay and the belt is nice, but I don't like the two together.

I love her dress and hat! they really go very nice together and perfect for the occasion, but I noticed her shoes look a bit uncomforable (kind of tight )

Ouch! You can see how her toes are bunching out over the left shoe in the second photo.

That looks so painful . I wonder though, if Mary has the issue that I have when it comes to buying shoes where one foot is one size while the other is too big. I always go with the bigger size, but that has its' disadvantages since the shoe on that foot is too loose and I'm always paranoid that I'm going to lose it.

Not really a fan of the dress. The belt does not look good with it to me.

Nice outfit. I also liked the matching belt and heels. Very nautical.

I think the outfit looks good on this specific event, nautical theme, otherwise it would look a little strange.
