The dress is simply gorgeous. I love the print, the colours and the cut.

Indeed, the print (and I am no fan of large prints in general) is lovely, and its varying patterns are very well placed within the dress.
The tailoring is actually rather formal, which makes a very nice contrast to the bold fabric, and the fit is exqusite - like the proverbial glove. Good detailing on the bodice, nice flow of the flaring train too. Beautiful.
Her hair went completely wrong. The very last thing to choose with this busy dress is a fussy hairstyle. Sleek, simple and straight, preferrably a nice low bun in the neck, and the overall look would have been perfect. The wavy styling doesn't work in itself either, it's shabbily done.

First I think Mary looks so elegant and refined in the official pictures that I was practically speechless.. Secondly, the dress for the New York event was quite modern and, along with her hair and jewels, I liked it. I think it was a bold choice and applaud her for it!

I like Mary's printed dress, although I think she wore better dresses. Yes, printed outfits are in vogue right now, and I like that Mary follows fashion. She manages to be classy and fashionable in the same time.
IMO that this printed dress looks much better on Mary than it looked on a model. Seems Mary made some changes to the dress, e.g. black stripe in waist area is much thinner in Mary's dress. I also quite like Mary's hairdo, but again she had better hairdos.

Believe it or not, I actually like the dress & the hair. Very fresh and a little bohemian. I adore this look on her. The dress is fitted wonderfully and she didn't over do it with the make up.

I agree, princess gertrude. No other woman would wear this dress like Mary does. I think this dress looks nice only because CP Mary is wearing it. When I looked at the same dress on fashion model, it seemed just average.

i think the cut of the the dress is very nice, i am not crazy about the print but mary has such a lovely figure that what ever she use looks good on her, some time i wonder if she has underneath any kind of body shape? she is very thin bu still the shape is amazing and sometime if you use one of this things, (sorry i don't remeber the name) can make you to look better shape even!

I'm not a fan of prints on anyone, I just don't really like prints especially bold colored ones. The cut is very nice though, perfect.

I think Mary looks really good. I agree about prints on evening gowns can really be a disaster but Mary looks great and has this whole visit IMO!!

I do't like the dress with the prints, and the hairdo isn't good either.

The cut of the dress is good though, and sometimes large prints and patterns are beautiful. But imo this one was not.

But CP Mary is shining and is indeed a beautiful woman.

I definately agree ! The only other royal I could imagine looking good in this dress is Rania.
