Loved the "short" trousers look. That purple jacket is something an actress would choose to wear. Mary is above that kind of bra with a bow make believe design.

Good to know if you like the style. I think it looks like a top-stiched sack and, although I have always thought she would look good in a sack . . . . I was only kidding!

The only only redeeming feature of that outfit is it's absolutely gorgeous colour. She looks fabulous in that wonderful purple.

I agree, the color was amazing. I didn't mind the top-stiching. It was the fabric that was the problem. It was too thin and could not form correctly on top.

I agree, I thought the outfit was awful except for the color.

Mary finally recycled the beautiful purple Hugo Boss dress she wore a few years ago!
I really love that dress.

the dress looks much tighter now then in 2004, but i am impressed that she still fits into the dress after 2 pregnancies. I don't fit into most of my clothes after just one pegnancy.

The dress is well fitted, not tight...

WOW!!! This is one amazing dress. Given the fact that I am not keen on patterns, I have to admit that Crown Princess Mary looked superb in the Hugo Boss dress. Cold colours complimented her complexion as well as the style enhanced her figure. Hairstyles and shoes were well-chosen for both occasion. At the same time, I like the hairstyle from 2004 better.

Just Me!

I posted this comment on the Fred and Mary Current events post and I think this is a more appropriate forum. Posted comment from earlier today:

I have always loved the black shoes that Mary wore in the 2004 photos and I have to say that black shoes look much nicer with the dress. The grey shoes tend to die out in the photo and the dress pattern overpowers the shoes.

I dont think that the shoes are over-powered, I just think that they aren't such a feature as they were in 2004.
Hair-wise I think that I maybe prefer the 2004, but 2008's was good too.
I'm glad that she left the dress as long as she did (its a very distinctive dress) before re-wearing it at a public event, but its wonderful to see it again now.

I too like 2004 hair better. But she is in a much different position now than four years ago. The hair suits where she is now.
