I love this dress. I'm not quite sure about the color. It looks like a pale mocha to me, but I could be wrong. The flow of the dress is very elegant.

I love seeing old pictures of Princesses,when they were fresh in the "business" Well,she doesn't look bad at all.I find the black jacket quite interesting,but not for a royal event,of course.It's just my type of jacket,that I usually wear with jeans

I really don't care for the jacket and choker. The skirt is nice, but the bows on the shoes are a bit much next to the skirt. The skirt would have looked nicer with a simple black top (no collar, or turtleneck) and shoes. The choker around her neck is awful. There is just too much division in this outfit (at the neck, the jacket contrasted with the skirt, and the shoes).

Mary didn't really wear that many "jewels" per se. She wore the Order of the Elephant around her neck, Family Orders and a Badge: All Honors. It was a really special gala so she was allowed all of the 'goodies'! :) (Plus all of her jewels.)
I agree that this is one special, regal gown and one of my favorites on Mary.

I like the color, but the style is a bit too medieval-looking for my taste. IMO, it looks like she is in costume. She should definitely wear more things in this color, though. It is really pretty with her skin and hair.

It's wonderful to look back isn't it? Mary has really grown. But I think all of us have. A lot in her life has changed and she seems to keep getting better, more comfortable with age.

showing the bellybutton wasn't something you'd except at a white tie event, let alone from a royal girlfriend, a major blunder she thankfully never repeated.

I don't think she expected to either, but one cannot control mother nature I never really liked that outfit, it looks very mish-mash.

You are so right. An errant gust and a (almost) royal navel was flashing. Not a good look unless on the beach.

Still, the outfit shows her fledgling fashion sense with a slightly larger budget than before. But lets face it . . . . you've got to break a few eggs to make a good omlet.

I agree with you I like seeing these old outfit for the same reason. It´s great how she´s improved her style.

Perfect dress on Mary purple is one of the best colours on her - so glad she recycled as its at least 4 years since we saw it
