London 13/11 60th Birthday of Prince Charles

Mary Mary ... I wish I had only seen her pictures from the car. The head looks great but everything from shoulders down ... Mary is usually at her best at evening wear but this one is for me clearly a miss, not a hit.

I agree. The car view picture, Mary looked like she was in a stunning dress. The full view shot is dissapointing. The skirt looks nice so does the top but doesnt look good at all when put together.

It's hard to see what Mary's dress really looks like from the photo. She has the skirt hooked up on one side obviously so that the hem doesn't get wet. I think that Fred would have looked much better in a black suit and not the navy that he is wearing.
This is my own personal opinion, I don't mean to offend anyone.

*shudder* That dress...

Very untypical for Mary to chose such.... such a dress.
The only good thing about her look was the lovely hairdo.

Not my favorite dress she has worn. I would have loved to have seen the purple wrap dress again. That would have been great.

Hmmm, I'm not too fond of this dress. CP Mary always look beautiful, but this dress is not one of her best choices imo.

Here's a little different view of that dress... it looks a little better here (still not very nice, imo ):

Thank you Her_Majesty! I agree. Great to see it from a different angle, but it is still not a favorite of mine either.

Gosh, look at Fred's suspenders His dark blue / black combo suit only adds to the horror of Mary's addams family outfit. One of the biggest occasions in international royalty and both of them get it wrong, big time!

I usually loves what she wears 95% of the time but unfortunately the dress was too gothic and dreary for me. I know it is fashionable to wear Victorian trends this season but her outfit looks more Morticia Adams than anything. From the neck up I thought she looked fabulous. Her hairstyle is impeccable. It's up there with Letizia's hairdo at the Copenhagen wedding. Flawless. But the dress is two thumbs down. She looks more like an emo queen with that ensemble.

I dont think it is easy to get a good look at the dress from those pictures. But so far it reminds me of the dresses worn pre-world war I.

I like the shape, but I don't think that the lace on top goes with the white stripes at the bottom. The white stripes are very modern and almost nautical-looking. The lace on top is old-fashioned and somewhat gothic-looking. Two entirely different looks combined together in a strange combination. The dress needed to have only one of these details, but definitely not both. This dress was a big miss, IMO. Her hair, makeup, skin, and jewellery are flawlessly beautiful though.

When I saw the pictures from the car I thought it looked unusual because of the neckline. Oh how I wish I hadn't seen the whole dress. IMO it really didn't flatter her. Not the best by any means

Agree with what has been said - the top half is great nut doesnt seem to go well with the bottom half - she would have been better sticking to the lace effect in the whole gown (naturally with a black dress underneath) or going with the stripped effect but not a combination of the two

Great hair and the earrings are divine

i prefer a classic black tux also, the blue ones ok for his birthday but not a party with the queen of england. mary looks beautiful LOVE the earrings and i like the top but not with the skirt and i like the skirt but not with the top. i'm sorry to say i'm disappointed in the goth addams family look, the hair and makeup looks fine, it's just from the neck down i find black so boring

I couldn't agree more. I'm very disappointed that for Mary's first (I think) appearance at Buckingham Palace she chose to wear a mismatched, dull outfit. The jewelry, however, was spectacular!

IMO CP Mary had a good idea - retro style. Hairdo and make-up amazing But the dress.. controversial. The top is ok, but the skirt (?) is awful, especially that white
strips. I'm really dissapointed. CP Frederic choosed a bed colour of his siut :(
