I think she looked great. Usually the standard issue uniform only comes in to sizes: Too big and way too big :-). I just speaks to her fashion sense, that a pair of cool sun glasses, will enhance any out fit

By all accounts the troops were extremely happy that Mary visited which is the most important thing.
I couldn't agree more! It doesn't matter what she wore (makeup or clothing) the important thing is that she took the time to visit the troops and I'm sure they appreciated it!

Can we please move on from the discussion of Mary wearing make up or not to her recent visit to Afghanistan. Lets focus on her fashion wear.

Thank you

Mary dressed correctly on her visit to Afganistan. I think this is an arguement about nothing.

Horrific outfit, what was she thinking? The colour is ok but the suit is so ugly with the shoulder polsters (yes they are in fashion but don't suit Mary at all, makes her look like a robot) - and then the stockings with animal print shoes That's a miss, big time!

I like the colour of the suit, but that's about it. The cut of the suit doesn't work for her figure (makes her look like too rectangular), and the shirt underneath looks strange with the suit. The shoes don't appear to go at all with this outfit.

This one's a miss from me. There is too much going on in the outfit. She's got some sort of crocheted top, shiny suit with balloon sleeves, ill fitting skirt and to top it all off, animal print pumps.

The shoes by themselves with a simple suit would have been great as a signature piece.

I like the colour of the outfit, but the jacket IMO is very ugly and unflattering. The skirt is ok, though.
I like the shoes, but they don´t look good with the blue outfit and black tights.

Did she dress in the dark???. So unusual for Mary to miss it like that.

Cool

I definitely don't like the jacket and the blouse is a miss plus the shoes just don't match. I'm beginning to wonder if Royals ever look in their mirrors.

Everything about this was a miss for me, the jacket was ill fitting with those shoulder detailing puffs, the skirt a size too small, the lepord print shoes matched what exactly and the color of the suit wasnt her color.

The only notable piece of this ensemble is that delicious black lace blouse HRH wore to the Prince of Wales' 60th Birthday at Buckingham Palace. Simply exquisite!!!!

Though imo, it's much better suited to be worn with an evening dress such as the one she also wore to 'BP' that very evening.

That said, and even for the likes of this fashionista, tonight's presentation was a miss. Through and through.

Was it her intention to use some sort of eco-friendly design in shoes by making them really stand out??? Very weird combination.

ODD from head to toe. I can't get over this look.

In the close up the jacket looks way too big thanks to the ugly shoulder pads, and why combine it with this particular lace top, doesn't work at all. The hair is flat and dull.

In the full view I only like the skirt, the colour is nice and in the future it could be combined with different pieces. Why Mary chose animal print shoes is beyond me, I would understand if it was the WWF summit :-) but not at a fashion summit, it's so much out of place and makes the outfit one of her worst ever.

I never though we'd see our Mary in such a disastrous affair. So unusual for her, although in this outfit, I can understand where the pregnancy rumours are coming from.

Individually, I can see the pieces working. Im very very happy to learn that the gorgeous black lace top is a separate piece. Last we saw it, it was attached to some rather ugly white strip and black long skirt. So hopefully we will see it paired with a much more elegant bottom half one day. The skirt would look good too and even the shoes tooo. But I cant get myself to like that jacket at all. But even the best of us have bad days.

Mary could have left the shoes and blouse on(both beautiful) take the purple suit off and just thrown on a black skirt and it could have been one of her best of the year. I agree with Duke, hair looks greasy IMO , I think it's the color.

I find this outfit ugly and it doesn't suit Mary at all! I know that Mary legs and arms are not long, but with this outfit they look really disproportionate, IMO.

Oh My! The only part of this outfit I like are the shoes (they're to die for). But she can burn the suit! The black lace blouse is ok and I would probably like it better with something else, say a black leather jacket and jeans.
