I think it's a nice enough dress, but like Baroness of Books said, I'm not bowled over by it. The skirt is pretty though.

That's probably it. The shape is a bit distracting and just doesn't work for me.
Otherwise, a beautiful dress.

LOVE these views of the dress. In the second in particular the color of the dress almost looks gold rather than pale yellow. Very pretty!

I seem to think so, too, to regarding the color of the dress, and the shoes seem gold as well.

ITA. This is a very beautiful lace dress and I love it from the back. The bodice is either too tight or small or she's possibly not busty enough for the dress. I don't know either, overall it is really beautiful. Maybe a necklace or boatneckline would've worked better.

To me it is the lack of balance that spoils it. The top high cut arms that are 'sporty", more suited to a sports swimsuit or beach dress. Or a swimsuit with a sarong. Maybe the dress needed to be slimline with those shoulders?

Somehow the bodice is neither feminine or flattering and leaves the shoulders sort of exposed. If the shoulders had been wider I think it would have looked much more balanced, more elegant, more "evening" with that deliciously feminine skirt and those fabulously chic heels.

The dress was beautiful, feminine and elegant and very well accessorized. But something about the overall look was not right for me. I cannot put my finger on it, whether it was the hair, the neckline, or the layout of the lace, but I think it is as MARG said that the upper bodice, arms and neckline are not 'in balance' with the rest of the dress.

Without analyzing every detail of the outfit I just think it's
a lovely, feminine dress that looks very nice on Mary.

May 24, 2012 - Mary at a concert in a recycled deep pink dress. Pretty dress and a pretty fit, love the color on her. Her hair pulled back works week with the dress.

I think the last time Mary wore this dress was during the Prince Consort's 75th Birthday festivities in 2009.

Mary looks beautiful.
I love that bright shade of pink. The dress is just perfect for her, as are shoes and the magnificent hairstyle.

I love everything accept for the actual style of the dress, or more specifically the 'skirt' portion of the dress. But as with Marie's, I hope to see better photos as this dress also looks a tad tight across the bodice, only this time from the front (or perhaps it is my eyesight ).
