The whole ensemble had a very goth look to it. And it didn't help the flash of the cameras made her already pale skin look ghostly. I have to say I don't like this outfit.

I was disappointed in this outfit. The entire look is too dark, and the details on the edge of the jacket look strange in the photographs. I didn't care for the turtleneck underneath the jacket. I thought that it looked better when she wore it in New York in 2005.

I'm suprised people think this is goth. It isn't goth style. Yes, she does look pale but it has more to do with the camera lights than her skin or makeup I think. I think this is the best this jacket has looked. But it is not my favorite.

All black (or dark) outfits are not a favorite of mine. She is way too fair skinned to be wearing such dark colors near her face. The fit of this jacket is wonderful, I would love to see it in a different color on Mary. And just a side note, I've heard that wearing black near your face after a certain age makes you look older (I still do occasionally but not as often as I did when I was younger, don't need any help looking older that's for sure!).

I don't mind her in black. The gown that she wore last week with Frederik to the film awards was really pretty. She has worn some other things in black that have been pretty. I think that when she wears a lot of black (i.e. the outfit for Prince Charles' 60th birthday), it tends to overwhelm her, and make her look really pale. Perhaps this jacket would have worked if she hadn't worn the black turtleneck underneath. It washed her out. I have also heard that wearing a lot of black makes you look older. I think that this is due to the fact that one's skin stands out much more, and it makes any aging more visible, but I don't think that she looks older, just more fair.

the jacket is Prada and I think she looks nice in it. I like the fact Mary keeps her clothes and brings them back.

Well the lighting was unfortunate, and looking back, it seems that this jacket is (by Mary) only ever worn with black, but all in all, I think its ok. I would (& I've made similar statements before) like to see her try this jacket with another colour, maybe cream as I think that it would look totally different.

I'm sorry marmi but this jacket with cream would be hideous!!!! I am not a huge fan of the jacket but if it is to be worn then it has to be with black. I think wearing it with the black turtleneck was a bit too much, however it might have been quite cold and CP Mary wanted to be warm!

No need to apologise, you are perfectly entitled to your own opinion. I was just getting at the fact that Mary has only ever (publicly) worn it with black, and I'd like to see another colour with it.

I like her last outfit very much . It's elegant and I love the combination of the colours with her hair and complexion .

Now that I can see the details of this jacket up close, I like it even less. They look like the type of trinkets pinned on to blouses by kindergarten teachers (no offense to teachers!). It is not an elegant look.

This was a beautiful dress. I really loved the whole look. Her hairstyle and earrings were especially beautiful.
