Totally agree her choice today is strange - like the skirt but not paired with the thing on her head

This is the stuff of fairytales

The thing on the head (great description PoE ) is the worst part of the outfit, not only that it looks odd it also clashes with the red of the skirt. Frederik looks good today, like the way he wears a matching tie (to the skirt, not the head piece ).

I do not like the outfit at all
The head something is bad, and the skirt looks like a piece of carpet

Also I noticed how old Mary looks . Never noticed before.

First, I think she looks beautiful! I agree with everyone that the outfit is odd. I love everything separately, even the headpiece if paired with an all black outfit. Overall, she has too many things going on...

The shoes are beautiful, very elegant. I love that jacket, she has used it before and always looks great on her but I think she would look better without the headpiece

The top half of the ensemble looks nice, but the rest... not so much. Sorry.

I wasn't crazy about the skirt the first time I saw it and am even more sure now that I don't like it but it is even worse with the headpiece. Love the little jacket and the shoes. Thanks for all the posts.

Is not the worst outfit ever, not my favorite either and about the head piece, the first thought that came to my mind was "uhm... very Blair Waldorf-ish of Mary"

I like this skirt a lot. The printed and colours are really beautiful. The shoes are just fantastic, I love them- how can such a simple pair of shoes look so elegant?
But I must say that I don´t like the whole look. I think that the jacket doesn´t match with the skirt (which is a shame, I love this skirt but I´ve never liked how she´s combinated it). And about the headpiece, I´m not really sure. I agree that it´s the worst part of the outfit, but I think that it´s because of her hairdo. Maybe it would look nice with the hair open. Not too fond of her hair today

I like the top and skirt. The skirt is pretty, and I think that it looks better with this black top than it did with the white blouse and grey cardigan that she wore it with previously. The thing on her head is very strange. I really don't care for it. Her bag and shoes are nice. Basically, the outfit would have looked much nicer without the headpiece.

I like the skirt and the blouse, but not worn together. It looks like it was just thrown together. The headpiece just doesn't fit at all.

i actually liked the burgundi bow headpiece. i thought it looked original. the blouse is great, but that skirt? she wore it recently and seems to like it, but i can't find the excitement with it. the grey-red match looks quite cheap imo.

Seperately, each piece is lovely, but together it looks a frightful mess. I think the look she was going for was very Dita von Teese (though I highly doubt she knows who Miss Von Teese is and vice versa)/late 40's early 50's look.

The outfit is lovely but the headpiece ruins the whole look IMO. The headpiece looks like someone had flattened a clutch bow and placed it on Marys head.
