strange gown almost looks as cthough she has been bound across the bustline love the colour though the skirt is on the gown is gorg. Would it have looked better on someone with a bust? It is hard to tell .... is it that sort of gown.

On the other hand, her hairdo is great, and the earrings are just amazing.

I am surprised to read some comments, and lot of people don't like this black dress, to me Mary is just perfect, the gown, makeup and hair like most the time.

Wow, you like this dress? Like I said, to me it's looks like carpet. I don't know who the designer of the dress is, but I really don't like it. The textiles look cheap and it's not flattering on her. Mary dresses well most of the time, but even she can have a bad dress day. This dress is hard on the eyes.

Imagine this dress in other colour and with higher or with more cut out neckline. And with some necklace...
Beside the are not the best light for dark blue dress.

The gown itself wasn't that bad. I just really didn't like this dark look on Mary. It completely washed her out and made her look very pale. The hairdo and earrings were lovely.
I agree with magnik; in a lighter colour and with a necklace this dress could have looked lovely.

You've got a good point here. Mary should limit her total black appearances IMO. Black does nothing for her.

For me the gown did nothing for her wonderful figure. The color didn't bother me as much as the cut. Other than that, her hair and makeup are wonderful.

Cool

I thought she looked very good in the gown, the only thing that was missing was a necklace or her choker.

Agreed princess gertrude. Princess Mary has a great figure and the cut of the gown was totally wrong for her. I think she looks good in black because her hair and makeup work. I just love her earrings. She must like the cold weather because she is never bundled up when she does her royal duties.

A choker would have really balanced the look I think, it's bottom heavy in a way. But I love her hair and make up.

what i hate most about this outfit is the colour, black. no idea why mary loves this "all black" look (she not even from NZ) - it doesnt suit her one bit. her worst outing in that sense was charles' bday, where she went as royal Goth or Morticia Addams double.

this specific dress is not horrible but not up to scratch either. the bust looks like fake leather, already said on this thread, and the skirt like cheap crepe paper. some colour please.

I really loved the outfit for Charles' bday, it was a bit 1920's sophistication. I do like her in black and i do like the bust on this dress but i am not a fan of the unfitted skirt. It looks like a dress for a toilet dolly from back in the day that nannas used to have.

Wow! I guess you really do not like black do you. The CP has never been Goth or Morticia Adam's double. She is one of the best dressed of them all and I do not understand how you can ever say she is Goth of all things.

I agree. I think Mary is one of the best dressed princesses. She can rock black, but she doesn't wear it right. It really doesn't suit her sometimes. I don't think she should wear all black. She should pair it with a different, lighter color.

The second outfit makes her look like she just stepped out of the Sweeney Todd film.

I find it puzzling that some say she can't wear black very well. I think she wears it extraordinarly well. Better than most.

I recall having labelled the lace and silk blouse Mary wore to the Prince of Wales' 60th Birthday in 2008, as having somewhat of a gothic inspiration. The 'tag' seems to have stuck..lol.

To this day, it remains one of my favourite appearances en masse. She was simply exquisite, from heels to hair.

She looked nothing like Morticia Addams...lol.
