Mary has a great body, with or without giving birth to twins, but this dress was hugging her in all the wrong places. The color was great and her hair and makeup looked wonderful.

I don't like the fabric of the dress or the color.

The fabric is what's killing me, it just makes the dress looks so cheappppppp. Love Mary, but this one is not a winner.

How nice for you! Were you outside or inside?

I think Mary looks beautiful and the dress suits her very well. Nothing is showing that can't be shown...
Judging from the pics, Frederik thought so too.

The saying that comes to mind regarding this dress is: All that glitters is not gold...

Not a bad dress for Mary but I don't like that part around the neck. Nice hairstyle

At first look I really liked the dress, but after seeing other pics, I changed my mind. It's still lovely but it just seems a little long in the skirt and sleeves and she was picking at the Demi-train quite a bit.

At first glance I liked this dress, but it is unflattering in many pictures. I just think the dress is very unforgiving, because Mary is in great shape, especially after 4 kids.

Not a bad dress but I don't think it looked great on Mary. But hair & makeup looked really nice.
Absence is, in my opinion, important to find out whether something in your life is meaningful and important! It may be difficult to endure, but the end result is always revealing.

The dress is too tight. She looks very good from far away and while dancing, but it's very unforgiving in other photos. She has a great figure for someone who has had 4 kids, but to rock this dress you need to be as flat as a pancake! Love Mary, but this is a no from me :(

I do think this is a most elegant and exquisite gown. Simple, classic and so very flattering on Mary. Absolutely beautiful. I do love her earings and classic hair style. Let us not forget Crown Prince Frederik. A very fine and dashing partner for a very lovely Crown Princess. They are such a wonderful couple.

I agree that she looks amazing for a mother of four, but let´s face it: the dress its too tight on her.
I don´t think Mary is going to be less wonderful for not having a teen body
Totally agree!

That was a killer, thanks!

Her evening gown for the gala is from Ole Yde Autumn/Winter 2010 collection:


I can't tell who wore it better: Princess Mary or the model.

On model dress is hanging, for Mary was too tight. Actually that gown is really ugly.

The dress on the model looks ugly, but on Mary it looked stunning possibly because Mary actually has some 'meat' on her bones. I would kill for a dress like that.
