Oh I love Al-bina's comment! It is rather a perplexing choice! I think it is a little too bridal but the material is nice.

For the return dinner on Finland State Visit, Princess Mary is wearing a gown from H&M Conscious Exclusive 2013 Glamour Collection. The gown retails for US$299. The collection became available online April 4, 2013 but only in European countries. Only 140 stores worldwide carry this Glamour Collection.

I do commend CP Mary on taking the risk, but this style is the equivalent of having the dress tucked into her pantyhose after a trip to the ladies room, only in reverse!

I am sure that Mary is in the public eye so much that she keeps looking for 'new' things to try. Must be hard to find so many suitable clothes.

Is a stack of chairs blocking the model in the corner wearing that dress sending a subliminal message that she shouldn't be let out in an outfit like that?

It's nice to see Laura Ingall's wedding gown again, but why ever did she take a scissors to the front like that? Did Mary get the wedding sunbonnet as well?

I don't see Fred in Manly's finery.

From some angles, she looks lovely. Others, not so much. I love her hair..

Mary looks really good in classic styles, but she does it oftentimes very wrong when she takes risks. It simply doesn't suit to her. The H&M model looks actually good in that dress, but this dress is nothing for Mary.

Nope, not a fan of this dress. Not a fan of mullett dresses in general. The boho style needs loose hair and strappy sandals. Too bad because I love white lace dresses; just not this one.
Oh my! That dress would have looked okay if it wasn't a mullet dress but it is just bad!

although the side view of the H+M dress isn't the most flattering, i admit i like the front view of it.

I would very much have preferred the dress was long all the way around. I don't understand why some dresses are shorter in the front. I think the dress looks lovely and very romantic on Mary, but IMO it would had been gorgeous if it has been long all way around. But it's bohemian style in a classic way as only Mary can do it! I think Mary looks lovely in these bohemian dresses and it's nice to finally see a new dress on Mary. It reminds me of the boho-dress Mary wore to the family photo session at Gråsten Palace in August last year.
