This dress is gorgeous! I have notice that all those who became princess were very unfashionable when they were normal. I guess thats what money does for all.

No one will argue that money doesn't help. You can buy more outfits at once and things to go with it. So you automatically look more put together. I do wish Mary would just wear her purple Indian Sari evening gown again. But I love that she has worn her blue green satin one shoulder engagement gown more than once. I love that on her.

Its not about money, you can buy a top from H&M and mix it up with a skirt/pants from zara and still look like your in designer wear. The thing is, they look more fashionable after marriage is due to people who help tem such as a stylist & some royal houses do have requirments on how one should dress
Some people do have millions but dont have tast nor style & some who have both

CP Mary IMHO is the only current CP who looks neither like a fashion victim - or like some TV anchor woman playing it all too boringly safe - or decked out as if she was on her way to a Hollywood premiere.
I do not particularly like CP Mette-Marit's and CP Victoria's taste in clothing but at least they don't fall into fashion traps either - but CP Mary is just the best dressed for me.
I'm certain that if you look back at recent pics from her in ten year's time, she will still retain a look of timeless elegance which holds up. Bravo.

She is beautiful...I love her smile, her bone structure, and her eyes; they just light up when she smiles.

I'd say overall that she has great taste in clothing. Her formalwear isn't overly grand, and her casual wear isn't slovenly.

It seems that she knows very well what looks good on her and what she can cast aside with little to no worry...or she has an incredible and honest stylist!

Here are some more links that I found of the same dress. The links above actually worked for me but they are messed up some. When I opened the above links I had to scroll down a ways to find the pic. But try these, hopefully they will work. Sometimes ANP is difficult I think maybe b/c of a high volume of users.

Cool

Mary certainly has the beautiful eveningwear. She has an elegant taste and I think that she also takes advice from fashion advisers seriously. My only wish is that Mary would wear brighter colors a little more often. She's a "cold color" person as I am and if I wear the brighter blues, greens, fushias she would look great. I've noticed that when Mary wears greys, taupes, brown or black, they tend to wash out her complexion. Since she's naturally fairer, black pales her even more. At the most she could add bright accessories.

I have not been able to find photos from this event on either ANP or PPE and was wondering if anyone else had had better luck, with finding pictures of the event which we are able to save?

Many thanks to anyone who has managed to and is able to provide a link for me.

I suspect that my searches of the ANP website are not so efficient as I would like them to be. Other people have been able find pictures is the past which I have not, but this may be simply because I search too early!

marmi, I have search on ANP, Polfoto, Getty, PPE, DRWBS and Corbis for pics of Mary on October 10th (the above pics) and the Soren Steffen pictures are the only ones I have found. It's strange, so few pictures

Well JessRulz, thanks for you efforts - it is nice to know that I am not the only one who is struggling, and your searches were far more extensive than mine!
It's a shame, from what I remember the dress she was wearing was a pretty one.

Couldn't agree more. I don't even favor Mary personality-wise above some of the other princesses, but anyone who follows royalty marginally would have to agree: Mary does the total head-to-toe appropriate-for-the-occasion looks better than anyone else on the royal scene.

She always looks like she's made an effort to wear what's most appropriate. Not only that, but she manages to do just that in combination with being more fashion-forward than any of the other princesses - and without seeming to become a fashion victim.

I think dressing up, for her, while she may enjoy the fashion aspect of it, really isn't about fashion at all. Rather, it seems to be for her about showing respect for A, her role as princess and her place within the oldest monarchy in Europe and B, respect for the people she will meet.

Of course, I can't speak for others let alone for someone who I only know from the media, but that's the ipression I get.

I wish that Mary would wear this dress again, if only so that we can see what it looks like when she stands, walks etc.

the dress seems lovely. it's a shame we didn't get to see any other pictures of it, but i'm sure we will see it being recycled at some point.

mary wore it at the silver wedding of the grand dukes of luxembourg a summer ago.

Yes - by all appearances most of the CPCs dodged the press that night (aside from M&P), so that photo is the only one we have of Mary.
