I think that this dress isn't appropriate to a crown princess and a women in her age. Too short, really unflattering to her figure. I guess she wore It beacuse these type of dresses are trendy at the moment and she follows whatever trendy in fashion.

I agree with dazzling; this is just not her. I understand attending the "fashion week" calls for something a little bit more daring than a suit or something she'd wear for a formal event, but still ... no.

I have to agree with you guys...not her best outfit.
I think the dress is silk...but not sure. Now, for starters, the belt does not go with the dress (it is a dress, right?). The shoes don't go with the belt. Two compeletly different styles. I guess you could do the dress and the shoes, but she needed another type of belt to pull the whole outfit together. Also, for my personal taste, I'd have liked the dress to be at least at the knee. But that's just my opinion.

Definately the belt doesn't match the dress and the dress is not for a princess attending a Fashion week. I wonder what was wrong with her.
Alexandra's outfit was perfect.

Not everything in fashion is to go for. such dresses, leggings, patent shoes, belts are in season, shoes one thing that is in season and go for it rather than having one look trying to fit everything into that look. I think she tried to hard..

I agree with everyone else that unfortunately Mary has the "fashion victim" look about her...I was silently wondering when she was going to go all *boho* on us...Seems the time has come

And she was going so well there for a moment...with her blue concert dress, the Legoland smart casual and the Grasten photocall outfit...I was also going to say Mary signature look/style seems to be the three-quarter length sleeve starting of course with her engagement outfit up until now with her red cardigan over the black and white sundress...

But I just have to include a dishonourable mention to the strapless navy blue dress in Croatia...It seems Mary is unfortunately developing a slight case of *tuckshop lady arms* even if the rest of her is trim, taut and terrific...Well, two kids in two years and middle age will do it to anyone, princess or not :)

I agree 100% but that's the thing with Mary IMO she was allways a fashion victim sometimes her clothes works and sometimes they don't I don't think there's a "Mary look" (better said "an Anja" her stylist) allthough this time It does seems like It's one of her worse outfit. I also think she tries too hard.

I agree Xeara, she started out the year well, and in my opinion this outfit is nice too except for the belt. I don't see what's wrong in following fashion, especially when she is visiting a fashion show. Just because no other royal does it, except for few, does it, it's not okay? It's a fashion show btw, not a royal duty , do can you blame her for not wearing a hat and a suit. This was not a royal duty, so she can wear what she likes, and she doesn't have to think about if it's too darring.

It might not be a royal duty but she is a royal in particular the crown princess of Denmark therefore she is allways a representative of Denmark and should look the part. I don't think she should wear a suit but between a suit and a dress that is too short and doesn't fit her age or her position there's a long way.

I think Mary wore the outfit because she was attending the designer's show. I personally didn't care for it, but I think she wore it well. As for Alexandra, I think her outfits are nice, but the way she wears hr hair ruins the look. It's like she forgets to finish the look. She must be doing her own hair thses day. It looks just awful everytime I see it.

I like the dress! Although Mary is a fashion victim, everything she wears just turns good on her! The belt work just fine in that kind of dress, very different and very stylish for a fashion show, another good choice for Mary. We must aplaude her for wearing such different clothes!

"tuckshop lady arms"? I don't know what this is, but it doesn't sound good. Ouch!

I also didn't like the strapless navy blue dress, it just didn't fit her figure at all!

I think she looks great and long, long legs are in. Young mothers need a lift and this flirty style won me.

This is OT, sorry mods!
I think "tuckshop lady arms" is pretty much an Aussie saying - not a flattering one at that Let me explain for those who don't understand Aussie slang: a tuckshop is pretty much the canteen/cafeteria at a school. The women who work there are generally stereotyped as those of the larger, plum variety. They often have large, wobbly upper arms. This of course is a stereotype however. So when we say "tuckshop lady arms", don't take it as a compliment!

In the UK, they are called 'Bingo Wings'!
And I really don't think Mary suffers from this, she looks pretty toned in my opinion.
I also have to say that I really liked the dress she wore to fashion week. The colours suited her and I thought that the style was flattering.

You know, I think the main reason the outfit just does not "go" is that the belt and shoes just don't match. They are different styles. She needed to wear different shoes to match the belt, or a different belt to match the shoes she was wearing. But the color (coral) did look good on her.
