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!
I am so with you on this pamk, dinky is the perfect word to describe that tiara, it is beautiful but lacking so much substance. Especially when Marie is wearing a much more dazzling one.
I do love the dress with Marys' hair up, it is such a polished look. But it is nice to see her hair out with this dress, it gives us something to talk about and compare!!

She looked very pretty, and I for one thought her hair looked lovely down.

This is my first post, so hello everyone.
I agree with you Madame Royale. I like Mary with her hair down on this occasion, especially with Frederick on crutches. She would look taller than her husband if she had her hair up. She is very radiant and fresh. I vote for her dress too. It suits her well.

Welcome, Mellie.

Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket I really don't like this dress. It takes work to get the sash crisscrossed just right. I'm pretty sure the gown was first worn perhaps three or four years ago. There were comparisons of Mary and Duchess of York in the same outfit. It's not easy to make it flattering on most ladies unless they are rail-thin.

I completely love this dress and her hair down is a nice little change from the norm of the up do. I do love that tiara.

I really like how Princess Mary looked on this event, she is very regal and at the same time fresh and modern.

I like the dress but think that the gap between the lace and underskirt is far too wide. The outside combination with the jacket looked really odd, a simple black coat would have been better.

I love the dress, it´s wonderful.
But it would look better with a coat. The jacket is beautiful, but with this dress I also think that a long coat would be better.

Fabulous pictures. I like this gown, beautiful design, and the shiny blue has a red touch on occasions that matches the ruby tiara.

The ruby tiara is pretty but also very "heavy" jewellery, there is always the danger to look a bit "over the top" but for these official pics it works very well.

The second picture appears to be too short, they should have cut it below Mary's feet as Frederik gets a full body view, why not Mary.
