Re: Dress worn in Melbourne

Hiya Everyone,

Does any one know who designed her black dress that she wore to the charity dinner in Melbourne?

Also, has anyone seen it online for sale?


Any information would be greatly appreciated.


Perhaps, she shall wear a dress with more colour on Wednesday night at the Victor Chang gala with perhaps a new necklace.

She looked great at the event.

Having seen today's gorgeous new outfit, I hope Mary wears a new dress tonight!

Mary's dress at the Victor Chang Gala, a repeat from the Beijing Ballet Gala event. For me it's another perfect gala appearance from Mary, as I said before, she's one of those who can pull off the "regal look" (sorry Fred but that's something you can only dream about, he's more the type Bob the Builder, forced into a suit).

Me too PrincessofEurope. The hair style was nice (elegant but not too intricate) and it complemented the dress and I think it complemented the dress more/better.

Crown Princess Mary looked absolutely glamorous in an understated way. The silver or platinum cold colour became her well. The cut of the dress favourably enhanced Crown Princess Mary's figure. By the way, I was not keen on this dress earlier.

I love the dress. The more I see the grey polka dot dress the more I like it. I see something new each time. It is really beautiful but not overwhelming the wearer.

I do like it more this time than the last, but I dont really want to see it again in the next little while. Twice within about a month is enough for me

That's a very thin line to expect Mary to walk. Wear it too often and we, her adoring public, get bored. Buy new eveningwear and have the piranna pack of anti-royalists whinge about conspicuous consumption and her spendthrift ways.

I like this grey dress. I have not seen it before, so it's a nice surprise for me.

Bob the Builder, you're so right!!
Fred really looks better in jeans and a sweater than in a suit, that's for sure. He just isn't the type for suits and uniforms, that's more his brother's department. Why don't we have fashion topics on male royals anyway?

Whoever the designer of this dress may be: it's just no, no, no!! The pattern, the fabric, the cut do give the wearer the look of a midfifties housewive trying to be elegant for her first time ever at the opera

A stunning dress, imo!
It looked much better this time then it looked in China.
