I agree, the colour doesn't complement her skin tone or dark hair colour (both of which i love imo and suited the red dress completely!)

I thought she looked great that night fur and all.It's one of her better dresses, in my humble opinion. The dress flatters her body and curves in every way.
Had the dress been a nice bright color like fushia, apricot, or even a mint-tarragon color, it would've easily been my favorite gala dress from Mary.

I don't like the neckline on Mary. It makes her look awkward and she's not an awkward lady.

I don't think it's the photographs. It just looks like variations on a big black tent thingee. Not a good look and the colour makes her look sallow. All in all, not a good look, for the very first time. Worse, the haircut just adds to the whole wash and wear, 'I am having a lousy pregnancy, I just can't be bothered, and, I feel as good as I look .
I hope she improves (on all fronts) in the very near future.

Heck, if she is having a "lousy" preganacy, sign me up for that!!! My pregnancy was lousy!!!!!! Much worse that anything Mary has ever had. Mary looks amazing for a pregant woman. Nothing seems lousy about it. When she doesn't take a shower, do her hair and make up and wears the same outfit for two days, then she's having a lousy pregnancy!!

It is difficult to find a decent outfit when your pregnant. Even after all these years the offerings are not too great. Now, I know some will say Mary has money etc. True, but there is only so much you can do with a pregnant figure. Mary is most likely wearing an outfit she is comfortable in. She likes more muted tones, but does go in for the occassional bright ensamble. In that outfit she is not distracting from the King or the hosts in anyway. She sort of blends into the background which is what she likes sometimes I think. Maxima on the otherhand has a much different personality and it shows.

I don't actually mind the dress itself. It just looks boring on Mary.

I liked the black dress. I have to keep in mind she's 5-6 months pregnant, and therefore she wants to be comfortable as well as stylish. Comfort should come first, or else why go? I mean, if she's going to look great but feel like poop because the dress is too tight or she thinks she looks bad in it, it'll be a waste of energy for her to bother attending. It was classy, but it wasn't like she was hanging out of it either. That little sheer part at the top was cute, especially with the beading.

I don't like this dress on Mary. IMO it doesn't suit her at all.
If you copy and paste it, then brighten the picture, it doesn't look as big as it does in the dark picture and it seems that there are sequins or ? around the waist and neckline. The shadows do make it look bigger than it is though.
I think she looked pretty.

The dress is one that doesn't photograph well.

That is such a beautiful collection of all her gowns, Mims111 ! I can not say, that I have disliked one single one of them, except for maybe the grey/beige one worn in Sweden. That one really looked horrible on her.. Other than that one, she is always beautiful and appropriate.


At the 2nd gala in Norway, Mary recycled this dress

Wow! Now that's more like the Mary we love seeing. Perhaps the black one did indeed not photograph well.

For the State Banquet during th State Visit from Brazil CP Mary wore the blue gala dress she already wore for her portrait in Australia.

This is just one of my all-time-favorite Mary-dresses! The color suits her very well and I love the cut of the dress!

CP Mary looked stunning at the gala - a dress both regal and with a touch of 1940's-style glamour, the wedding tiara looking a bit more substantial than usual with this hairstyle, great posture as usual - IMHO, Mary is the only one among the current CP's who evokes the image of our childhood's fairytale Princess.
Compared to the dress worn by CP Victoria for the Swedish gala, which drew inspiration from the same time period, Mary's gown is so much better cut and executed. Does anyone know who the designer is? I too like the fact that Mary seems to realize what her best outfits are and then 'recycles' them.

Finally the dress being recycled. Beautiful color & not many crown princess's would wear. Love the cut, does shape her really well. She looks just as good as she did when she first wore it in Australia

I agree with you Boris. IMO Mary represents everything a crown princess should be. Her cloths are beautiful (this blue dress is Amazing) but put the same cloths on any other crown princess and the end result wouldn't be the same. Mary is truly special.
