I actually like the length of the dress. It makes a nice change from the usual "knee or ankle".

I really am in the minority this time aren't I?!?!
I really love the length of the dress, I think it makes the dress more unique and eye catching. The texture and colour are gorgeous.
All in all, I love it.

I wish I liked the dress, but Mary....Studio 54 called and they want their clothes back! Not a very flattering outfit on her. She looked great at the cinema the other night so I'm not sure what happened. This dress along with her first outfit in Bulgaria makes me wonder if her stylist suddenly didn't show up for work? Please Mary, get back on track...and quick! I enjoy seeing you look like a million bucks and working the camera.

Me too! Don't understand why all dresses have to be the same two lenghts - this is a really nice change.

I love the dress and I think the lengh is just perfect, that is why I love Mary because she inovates, because she is in fashion and she is not afraid to wear something different

I adore the dress at it's present length. The shape of the dress lends itself to longer lengths very well. I don't think that a shorter version would be as formal.

The one from the Vogue photoshoot was provided for her by the Australian team who interviewed her. The article mentions this. Also, it was a long gown rather than below the knee dress. Perhaps she liked the Hugo Boss dress gown and got one for herself after.

Yes very appropriate (meaning here for the event, her skin tone, and body shape etc)
Interesting background to the pic.
This is the only picture I've seen so dont feel I can comment more yet.
