I do not like that gown. But that is just me. Pneomuenia is nasty, hope he has recovered well.

She has another evening dress from Erdem that looks a little similar (as all Erdem dress look similar to me) but it had cap sleeves and the flowers were more berry in color. She also has a day dress by Erdem that is similar.

The dress itself is very pretty but unfortunately on Mary I found it very unflattering. It looked like it was a size too small especially around the middle area. The hair had no effort into styling. The earrings are lovely!

I'm actually not a fan of the dress Mary wore to the party, though she looks elegant. The design of the earrings is nice but they're a little too large for me, though it is sweet that they were a gift from Frederik. Perhaps she wore them to remind her of him, given the fact that he missed the party.

These last evening gowns are all really beautiful and suit Mary very well - I like the fact that because the patterns are floral, the actual shape of the gowns are very simple and straightforward so work well.

Mary indeed looked stunning at that Tranekjær birthday. Love these simple (floral) dresses on her, she has a radiance that makes she doesn't need big dresses. Didn't knew the earrings was from Frederik, he has good taste

The big soft curls in her hair always suits her a lot. Her floral gown and hair are especially visible in the video and 'in moving':

While I like the style and colour of her dress, I did not like her hair. When she moved the dress moved and looked lovely, the hair stayed still. I found her hair too flat and straight around the face but, when she turned around, there were curls.

For me, it just seemed like a bad case of helmet hair which is a pity because Mary's hair is usually spot on. I thought the hairstyle didn't do the cut and style of the gown any favours and worse, often obscured those fabulous earrings.

So for picky me, lover of jewellery, I think she should have styled a relaxed updo to allow us to see the top of the gown properly and drool over unobscured aquamarines and diamonds.

Love the dress. Really love the earrings. I could see Catherine Cambridge wearing that. I love both dresses in post # 324- especially the second one- and I can see Catherine in all 3!

He sure did! The whole Aquamarine set is gorgeous, lucky girl. I Imagine he had fun looking for something really special for his new Princess. And he did well.

Have you two been watching a pre-screening of Mary, the making of a princess?

Absolutely lovely, both the gown and earrings. I loved that the gown was of a floral print instead of glitter or sparkles. This was chic and elegant on Mary. Only problem was her hair, to stiff looking, not the soft flowing kind I am used to seeing. Fred has great taste in jewelry.
