Her hair, jewelry and shoes are fantastic. The dress, not so much. I'm not much on shiny fabrics. IMO, it kind of looks like she's wearing tin foil, you know the colored ones from around the holidays. I will say this, the cut and color are nice.

I also don't love the dress (I don't hate it either). The bronze color really suits Mary. As always, hair, makeup and accessories are divine.

Mary herself looks good but I'm not fond of this shining dress. Is this a new trend?

The cut of the dress is beautiful. The material however is not. It's way too shiny. I would have loved this dress in a different fabric.

I'm sure that without bright flashes from the camera (to account for the darker lighting in the venue) the fabric is not as shiny.

I love this whole look! She looks amazing!

I do not like the dress, looks too shiny and cheap.
The hair do look add to me

I am absolutely crazy about every little thing. The dress fits like a dream and is very interesting in the cut, boat neck, sleeves, inverted pleats, set in waist. I love that the pattern gets bigger on the way down.
Would love to see a closer up image of hair and earrings.
Both this dress and the blue unfortunately highlight her bony neckline, she has gotten very thin.

Mary looks every inch like the Crown Princess she is. Elegance personified in every way, from her beautiful hairdo, perfectly fitted dress, her simple accessories. Lovely...

Mary wore the same earrings to Amber Petty's 40th Birthday in Adelaide, South Australia, in 2010.

Personally, I don't consider Mary to have a 'bony' neckline, rather, she has a very feminine (shall I say svelte) décolletage which I find to be quite an attractive feature.

She looks exquisite when her shoulders are bare.

September 18, 2012 - Mary in a new dress, looks really nice and its different to what she usually goes for. I don't like the print, it looks like animal print (snake or lizard). Ponytail works well with this dress.

What a flattering dress, would like one in every color! Any ID on this one?

Perfect skirt and skirt length for her. Posture is so enviable.

Mary looks really pretty, the dress is lovely. The ponytail was a perfect choice for this dress.

So far, CP Mary's elegant wardrobe for the trip to Brazil has been fantastic IMHO - but this is the first miss for me.
The snake skin print is indeed not pretty at all, the cigarette ash shades do not suit her coloring, and the neckline is wrapped rather too thickly around her neck; the ponytail might work with the dress, but not really with Mary's age. Not even the peep toe shoes are a particularly nice choice... the earrings are, though.
