Hmmmm....the name of the 'apprentice designer' is Alexander McQueen
The gown is a recyle from 2005

I still say she looks wonderful. However, she desparately needs a new Tiara....preferably one that sparkles! This piece looks like stainless steel to me and not important enough for a Crown Princess.

I know, but I still think that it is not one of his best works. At least to my taste.
This is one of the rare occasions where I prefer Marie's look to Mary's.

It may not be one of his best designs but it beats anything that Marie has worn, imo. The quality of his work shows immediately in the beauty of the fabrics used, the tailoring and just the over-all elegance. Nothing 'tacky' here!

Princess Mary's outfit is stunning. She looks like a fairy-tale princess of Denmark.

Mary looks lovely. princess-like. I remember this dress, she wore it before. I think she should have her hair up while wearing tiara, though.

I totally, totally agree - this tiara is so skimpy - Mary does need a really nice diamond tiara (Marie has a gorgeous one) - Mary can't wear the ruby/diamond one all of the time, so a nice important diamond tiara to go with everything would fit the bill. Surely, the Queen has one just sitting around in the vault!

No it is Alexander McQueen. Mary looks really good in it. But I think hair up would have looked better. She has worn the gown two other times I believe. Once in Belgium and once in New York I think. On a side note, Fergie also wore this dress. She looked awful in it. Mary looks great in it.

Love the dress but, while I have always liked her wedding tiara in this view, with her hair down it looks somehow incomplete. Llike there is something missing, . . . . . . . Buttons perhaps!

This evening dress has never been worn in Belgium. It was worn in New York and Denmark.

I love the Alexander McQueen dress! The colour, the fabric,.............. everything is just perfect for me!

However I think she looked more beautiful and regal when she had her hair up!

It looked so much better back then. The hairdo was perfect for the dress.

I agree, the satin on the enckline with open hair is abit too much but doesnt look bad at all. I dont think the problem with the dress was the hair do but the tiara. Its not one of those dresses you need a tiara for IMO. Thanks for posting the pictures, hairdo was beautiful

My mistake, I think she was having dinner with Matilde of Belgium at the time, which is why I said Belgium.

Everybody is so right about this dress. With hair up, you can see the draping around the neck - with her hair up, the whole appearance has a retro look to it - much more sophisticated and beautiful.
She does not need a tiara with this dress as the dress presents such a strong statement on its own. But the occasion called for a tiara, and poor Mary had to wear that dull, dinky little thing that she has - she deserves a bigger and prettier one!

As you so perfectly put it, Pamk, the occasion called for a tiara as all the other Royals were wearing one. Unfortunately poor CPMary is stuck with the most unattractive of all tiaras! She certainly deserves better.

It was Prince Constantijn and Princess Laurentien of the Netherlands.
