Oct 10, 2009 - P.Mary attending a concert in a new printed dress with black stockings.
The dress itself is quite nice but I think its too casual for a concert evening
and the black stockings do nothing to make it dressier, makes the apperance to dark.

The dress looks lovely although it's too dark.

I like the cut of the dress, but I don't care for the print. It is too busy, and the neckline is kind of strange. Perhaps it might have looked better with a boat-neck. I don't like the black stockings.

A short flimsy dress with black stockings, too casual for duty. Is this a new trend? If yes, not for me. Royals should not follow the latest fashion in any case, like celebrities do or look like the average girl on a night out.

I like the outfit, but it isn't suitable for this kind of engagement.

I think the dress is very interesting, even original.
I agree with Dazzling, it's not the suitable for a concert evening, for such cases it needs to wear something more formal.

I agree Duke of Marmalade that the dress is way too casual even if the event was a casual affair. The dress is nice for the beach.

There's something about this dress I really don't like.
I don't know if it's the pattern, the cut or the colour... or maybe all of it together...

Hmmm, I'm not sure of this dress. Neckline is weird. Colors look beautiful on her but this seems like a day dress to me also. Black stockings I just can't get used to especially when your legs are fantastic like Princess Mary's.

In trying to stay positive, At least the outfit is not solid black or grey, as most of her fashion has been for the last couple of weeks.....other than that, I can find no other compliments.

I never thought I would dislike everything about an outfit that Mary wore but OMG! It is all truely awful and worse, inappropriate for an evening event like this.

Well, I like this dress, though I´m not very fond of the neck line. Maybe it looks too casual for the event because of its lenght (it´s too short for an official event, IMO) and the black tights. For a casual engagement it would be fantastic.

IMO one of the worst I've seen on Mary. The outfit is to busy. Is it still warm enough in Denmark that Mary is out without a coat?

I'm not fond of the print nor the neckline. But I think the dress is suitable for her engagement.

It funny, another poster wrote they were glad that she didn't wear black or grey. Honestly, I wish she'd wear more black or grey! I think it looks so chic on her. I'm not fond of about half the prints she wears or many of her pink outfits. But I'm sure some one would disagree!

I liked this particular dress because it was a "cool" change.A colorful "light" dress that reminds me of Missoni's dresses and knitwear.Maybe not for this occasion or combined with these black stockings,but it's definitely not an ugly dress.

I have to agree with MelinaB. The dress is bohemian and chic, but not a good choice at this event. And, I quite liked the dress better on Charlize & Becki without the dark tights.
