I think that the dress is quite nice, although I´m not very fond of the ruffles. The shoes don´t match the dress, IMO. The hat is wonderful, love it

I do really like the dress - but it itself is very attractive there is no need in attractive belt, shoes and most of all hat. It well matched in color but unnecessary

The shoes are not best
And too high for her I suppose.

The outfit in its whole is just overdone – too many layers of ruffles on top, a decorated hat with a dress that IMO won’t look good with any hat, a slight balloon cut to the skirt… too much going on.
The dusty rosé color is lovely though.
The worst thing here are the shoes – hateful. Wedges are almost as ugly as exaggerated platforms, and I’m surprised to see Mary in a pair at all, let alone such a horrid one. They ruin every chance for any outfit to look elegant. A no-go.

I have to agree with you about the fussiness of the ensemble. Each piece by itself is perfect, but the look is overdone. The dusty colour, which can be difficult to pull off, became Crown Princess Mary perfectly.

I love Marys fashion, because its not just the same old fashion style, its a changeling style. And that is just so amasing. Thank you Mary fore that !!!

Goodness. I don't care for anything about what Mary is wearing. Way too much going on and the dress with all the ruffles is just not flattering, other than the color.
I do like her hat but certainly Not with this dress.
As for the shoes(?), there are no words to describe them, IMO. A total miss where Mary usually always shines!

I like the color of the dress, but I think that the combination of the hat and ruffles is just too much. The dress didn't need the hat, and the hat would have looked great with a simple sheath-style dress. Also, the hat would be fantastic in the spring, but not in September.

In some ways I feel that this is quite a departure from Mary's norm, and in other ways it isn't - how odd is that?!
I like the ruffles, although in some ways I wish they continued around the rest of the neckline.
The hat is a nice match and I'm glad she went for simple jewellery.
I'm reserving judgement on the shoes until I see a full-length shot

Yes, they are by Louboutin. Unfortunately, because I guess they might be worn again.
Must be the one of the ugliest designs in the collection.

Salmon / light pink dress with ruffles with a nice hat. A good luck but I don't like the shoes. One of Louboutin's ugliest model.

I am loving this outfit. The shoes match perfectly with the hat and the hat with the dress. Another outfit well done

I disagree! I think it's a very modern and nice design. And it seems and is very comfortable, too!
I have the exact same pair and also another one in black. I think Mary has them in black too.
However, the truth is that they match better with trousers! At least, I like them better this way.

Which red soles are you talking about with the shoes? I don't see any red soles.

Yes she has the same pair in black! I agree with you, this kind of shoes match better with trousers! Each time the princess wore them in the past, it was with trousers!

The red colour is almost gone on the sole because she wore those shoes a couple of times before but you can see it on several pics

Do the shoe's have a red heal, sole, wedge or are they the bamboo look that I imagine them to be? Thanks

I like this dress, especially the delicate rose color. I like the shoes too, but not with that dress. When I'm looking at that outfit, I think 'there is too much of everything': the ruffles, flower on hat, 'heavy look' shoes.
