Now that was just plain mean. You really should have started you post with:

Ok, this mustard-colour (I could not say it better) is really hard to wear for everybody, but would suit better for a Lady with a Little more tanned Skin .... on CP Mary (who has a very pale Skin) it Looks very washed out. The belt destroys the rest of the Dress...

The earrings are great!

I think this color works best on darker skin. But the extra fabric gives it a costume look. Like she just left dress rehersal...he!! Positive? Hair perfect!

I am totally in the minority here but I don't have a problem with this. You can tell that she's playing with different styles and that she has a bit of an edge - and I totally respect that.

I get the criticism of the belt and accessories, and this isn't the best color for her (it actually makes her hair look much lighter), but I applaud her for trying new styles and not sticking with the same old/same old.

If this is Mary's new hairstyle, middle parting and longer a la Kate, its not working.

I'm not sure how I feel about this outfit. One the one hand, I like that she is experimenting and adding some edge with the belt. But on the other, the color is not the best on her and the cut is making her look bigger than what she is. Her hair is good and the earrings are very nice.

The color looks like something my cat would throw up. The dress itself is lovely but the wrong color for her. It's just screaming 'look at me' which is not appropriate for the event. Actually a nice tribute to the Red Cross would have been a red dress...not cat barf yellow.

The gladiator belt is so not working. If it had been a thinner jeweled type belt it would have worked better.

Overall a miss.

OK- sorry but the dress reminds me of vomit. That's not a good one shoulder cut either, and the bag and belt are both awful. The belt looks painful. The dress needs an iron. I like what Marie wore better than Mary- doesn't happen much. Huge miss.

A big miss. The color looks nice on her and her earrings are beautiful, but the dress and belt are pretty bad. And her clutch...looks like she's carrying a small bird.

Oh dear. I am not liking this look on our beautiful Mary at all. The color is awful, as is the belt and furry bag. Even the style is odd, to say the least. The only positive to say is that Mary herself looks lovely with her hair and makeup and pretty smile.

The yellow dress is an awkward choice. The crumpled Grecian-style dress is further aggravated by a belt.

i am also not a fan of that dress. the colour doesn't really suit mary, but nevertheless that colour is really hard to pull through. the design and fitting of the dress could have saved the colour issue, but in this case it doesn't work for me.

I love the colour and usually I hate mustard yellow (I agree with carlota in regards to mustard yellow being a hard colour to pull off), but it just looks wonderful on Mary. The dress is alright, but I feel that she has worn nicer ones. However, I don't like her earrings, belt or bag. Her earrings are not my cup of tea, her belt is as iceflower said a little strange, and her bag does indeed look like an animal of some sort.

I'm sorry, but this is an awful look on Mary. The color is awful, and the style of the dress isn't much better.

A real miss. Not only is that awful belt painful and costume-y looking, the dress is way too long and the one shoulder doesn't even have the same material going up over the shoulder in one piece! Dislike her hairdo, ugly clutch too. don't mind the color but it is not for her.
