I would like that dress more if it weren't for the fussy, bulky material in front. But I thought her hairdo was very attractive.

June 22, 2014 - Mary attending an awards event wearing a strapless dress.

Not liking the lipstick, I don't think it suits the overall look. The dress and the look is lacking something but I can't pinpoint what exactly. I do like how the hair is styled.

Crown Princess Mary's Eveningwear Part 13: January 2014 -

It looks like she is holding her breath in because the dress looks way too tight around the rib area. She has a great figure but she often has her skirts or dresses tailored just a tad too tight. One big meal or breath and it could end up being a wardrobe mishap. It looks so tight around the rib cage. Just letting the seam out by a quarter to a half inch would make the outfit look better on her.

i thought this dress looked familiar indeed!
it is a pretty dress, i like how the length of the skirt if 3 quarters, yet i don't believe strapless is a very appropriate neckline for a princess...

I think this is just my problem with this dress. She looked much nicer the last time she wore it, and this may be the cause.

I always love everything that Mary chooses, but this isn't a favorite for me. It looks ill fitting and while I usually love lace, this looks a bit old fashioned and prom-y IMO.

I like this dress. It's simple and appropriate for the event. Good on her for being able to fit into a 9 year old dress.

The dress looks the same on the model

I think she looks her best in the most recent outing for this dress. I really like it.

The dress looks nice on Mary although personally isn't my cup of tea, due to the colour combination (I've never been a fan of dullish colours like brown and black together).

I agree about the dress being too tight, I find strapless quite unflattering on Mary and her skin (apart from the face) is not to show off.

And hair up would have stretched the look. Nothing bad here - but it could have been better. I say this as I pause and look at what I am wearing, today.

She looks very nice. I would like her hair up. Her skin looks very nice.

I give props to ANY woman who is 42 years old and can still fit into a dress that she wore before she had 4 children! Compared to what other women wore to the event...CP Mary looked a hell of a lot better!

It does looks pretty tight across the waist, the dress is pulling. Like the nude hose much better than the black she wore the other times.

For a 42 years old lady, I think her skin looks good.
For a 10 years old dress, i applause Mary for been able to fit into a dress first worn during her pre-baby days. The tightness is understandable.

I never liked the Celine dress and I think it is too tight for her across the top not a favourite IMO
