I agree about the hair, the dress is pretty dramatic, too dramatic to go with lose everyday hair.

As it was a cultural award, upswept hair would have looked too over the top and dramatic

Give the poor woman a break. Maybe the twins haven't slept all night or perhaps all four children have been sleeping in the bed with their parents leaving only 2,5 inches to each adult.

i agree with you, the hair was not her best. but i like that prada dress because i like the details of the lace.

A ponytail? You did not care for her ponytail to an semi-formal event not to long ago. Why the change?

Click on the photo to see the very large and detailed view of Mary's face.

Funny! I see no puffiness...and the same wrinkles are there as before!

For a woman who gave birth 4 months ago, she looks damned good!

I love Mary but this time I found the dress pretty old. For me it's exactly the kind of dress woman in their 60's have when they go to theatre for exemple. I saw a picture recently of Raissa Gorbatchev (late wife of the former prime minister of Russia whit exactly the same dress at a reception in London). The cut is not fantastic, maybe too longue (I'm not sure). And of course you are right the hair not like this, She can wear them long but more sophisticated.

She looks beautiful, but god, did she use a paintbrush to apply the make-up?
Itīs way too much! I bet you almost can to sink a finger on her face!
Itīs a joke, but I think she shouldnīt use too much make-up. I understand she may be tired ( I also would be, four kids, two of them newborn twins ) and so. But please, to hide it it isnīt necessary to look like a porcelain doll.

The picture I posted is very detailed...it is a HQ version. If you look at the other photos from this event (for example, the photo posted by Duke of Marmalade above), you do not see such close details and the make-up does not appear to be that heavy at all.

I still think the dress is pretty, but I agree with you, it's a bit old. Maybe a little shorter, at the knee lenght, would look better?
But I love the deep colour of it.
