Mary's evening dress was not flattering nor did it fit well around the waits IMO. The back design should've had hair up, the soft balloon sleeve design doesn't work with an open back IMO.

Not a fan either. I was pleasantly surprised by the back but really can't see why she would have considered buying this one.

Do you think it could, possibly, be because she likes it

Nice to see something different. A perfect dress for a private event like this. Beautiful dress and it suits Mary very well.

her dress yesterday was really unimpressive. nothing wrong with it, but washed out and slightly boring. i like the simplicity of the cut, but if i were her i'd cut this and use it as a daytime dress rather than for a gala appearance.

I agree, I like it. To be honest, I like it more than the tiara outfit. I know I am in a minority but I never liked the outfit form the gala dinner/dutch inauguration, top & skirt, I don't think the tiara goes well with it, I didn't like the hairstyle either.

If ranking Mary's appearances for her MIL's birthday I'd put first the dinner on April 8th, the black prada dress, then yesterday's private dinner and last the gala dinner.

I like it very much

That would be my ranking too (although I like the Dutch inaug dress, just not with the tiara).
I think that this grey dress as well as Maxima's black dress looked better on TV than on pics though.

bertie5252003---you should never regret a post that is your honest opinion. You did not defame or mock or critique the shape of Mary. You gave honest opinion on clothes and style. The couture style now is for throw back to 60, 70 & 80s. Since I lived through them [and well before] the clothes bring back nice memories. To others they look odd. I am sure Mary has been "advised" on certain dress options that she picks from. Five years from now the "look" will be quite different. A point of fact: Letizia recently wore a gown with a huge black print on white. That look was quite the style at proms in the 60s. What goes around, comes around in fashion. I, for one, enjoy reading other's fashion opinions.

I had read once that she always asks Fred his opinion before purchasing "formal" clothes. If true, maybe Fred liked it and that closed the deal.

I'm afraid I am in the "dislike" corner on the grey dress. It think it ages Mary, and that is hard to do. I rarely dislike what Mary wears as she is able to carry most things off with aplomb and grace, but I just don't care for this dress. Still...

The grey dress is not my favourite either; but I kind of like that she tries something completely different from her usual style - gives us all something to discuss :-)

The gray/silver dress has a "jumpsuit" vibe to it - like it was meant to be a jumpsuit, but was made with a floor-length skirt instead. And that's probably why I don't like it.

The more I look at it the more I like it. Not an easy dress to wear.

Crown Princess Mary wearing a new gown to the anniversary reception of the Hotel d'Angleterre.

Gown by Yde Copenhagen.

The dress is busy but it works. Mary's hair and makeup are perfection.

_ Post removed from the daytime thread to the eveningwear thread_

F&M tonight participates in gala celebration at Hotel d'Angleterre on the occasion of the hotel's 260 year anniversary, Copenhagen.

Mary in long black Danish Ole Yde dress from 2013, long earrings and soft curly hair:

Nice dress even not my favourite. Mary herself looks absolutely beautiful.

I think the dress is awful. The style and design is too much.

I don't think it is actually awful, but certainly not my favorite of Mary's. Don't care for the fake "sweetheart neckline". The top just seems a bit off some how. Might look great in person, just don't know. JMO Otherwise, she looks nice as hair and makeup lovely.
