I love this simple repeat dress. She always looks amazing in the color. Also the dress is just simple and elegant. Her earrings are a similar or the same leaf style that Princess Marie has worn recently.

Hm, silver earrings, golden clutch, silver shoes? Could have been better.

Also: the colour of the Dress is a WOW, the cut is an arrghhhh, she nearly looks fat (I NEVER expected that to be said about CP Mary )!

Looks fat??? We saw the same picture???

CP Mary looks amazing in this dress, but I don't like the top of the dress.
I think that this clutch doesn't match. Silver clutch would be better.
Louboutin's high heels are beautiful.

Pretty dress. I liked it when she wore it with the nude CLouboutins though. Earrings are nice but not my first choice with this dress. Something looks off which is unusual for Mary.

I'm not overly excited about this dress. There is something off about the look. I think she needed a necklace. The bag didn't go and the shoes are just okay. If she'd had on a necklace and some strappy heals with a different bag, it would have pulled the whole look together for me.

I really love the color of the dress. Mary looks beautiful in it.

I absolutely love the color but the accessories are mismatched; her bag should have been silver. I don't care for the cut of the dress top and she definitely could have used a necklace. The earrings are pretty, but something more jeweled would have been outstanding.

The dress is terrific except for the bodice, it looks as though the sides are just going to come down! Yes, a necklace may have helped.
Wonderful makeup

I love that shade of purple, it looks lovely on Mary. However, if I have to be picky, then there's something about the left side of the neckline that I'm not too sure about. Her bag is a little bright for my taste, but I think gold and purple go nicely together. I like her shoes as well.

I agree with the comments, her looks is alright but NOT great. I think the style is for a larger frame woman perhaps, so it looks somewhat big on her shoulders, and those big earrings are not doing much for her either. I like her hair style

Not my favorite dress but Mary still looks lovely. I agree that a silver bag would have looked better than the gold. Love her shoes..

I agree. The clutch was move of an over-statement than a statement.

But I have to admit, I am a little confused. Deduct marks for clashing clutch, or harmonise the entire look and be marked down as too matchy matchy! It's a no win situation so I guess she just decided to play with us.
