I love the color of her dress but for some reason its not flattering. I think there is too much fabric which makes her look a bit wider than she is. The style is nothing special, its seen before and will be seen again in the future.

Love this gorgeous dress. It would be very simple for an experienced seamstress to alter the dress worn to Victorias wedding. the colour is very flattering as is the waistline.

I have to admit, I like this incarnation much better than the "Wedding" version. Somehow the lace version seemed overly prissy and fussy and this version is much more classic "Mary".

Nice dress, but nothing special. I've impression that I saw many similar dress among the royals. Color is nice as well jewelery. Mary should care more about her skin visible dry in some pictures, sun is dangerous especially for women with pale skin like her.

If only it were a more attractive colour. Fairly mediocre, like something someone would wear to a school prom.

I agree that the dress itself is nothing special. But that is part of the equation that adds up to an overall stunning look. Simple gown, minimal but interesting jewelry and subdued makeup and hair. She's not unattractive nor is she a raving beauty, just a normal, pretty woman. Maybe Mary has finally realized the power of "less is more". IMO this is one of the best looks she has ever presented. So much better than at Victoria's wedding...a total disaster on all levels. THIS is classic and elegant. Bravo!

Can you show what pictures you mean where you can see dry skin?

Or maybe it is just the lighting at the time the photo was taken..i.e. flash photography?
Certainly no dry skin or bad make-up in these photos from Newscom - Multimedia for Websites and Publishers (search for Crown Princess Mary)

Different people, different opinions. Everyone is entitled to his point of view.

Yes, the newscom photographs seem very much photoshopped, not a wrinkle or a sag in sight compared to the Bille Bladet shots taken the same moment. Nice to see non-photoshopped close ups for a change, thank you for pointing it out.

I think that the problem is 'invention' of the photographers. Very rare are 'au naturel' pictures without additional light or photoshop. Mary's skin in Denmark looks ok, even without make-up, but Australian climate is different and such a change can be visible on her face, especially without suitable make-up products (heavier for Denmark, lighter for Australia)

The photographs do not appear to have been photoshopped to me.

The Billed Bladet photo's were taken without flash. That is clearly identifiable by the shaddow that can be seen behind the Crown Princely couple. Capturing the different shades and angles of shaddow as a result of other photographers using flash, but the subject themselves remain untouched as the BB photographer was not using it.

The rest were taken with flash which always softens the subject and equalises any perceived physical lines. And you'll note that the shaddow behind Mary in these photographs is almost barely recognisable.

I dont think Mary has good skin as all. There are lots of pics out there that show some damage.To me it looks that she has tampered with it a lot (peelings etc) and maybe her genes just arent good. She has a recent tendency to very heavy make up what doesnt make it any better. Skin eventually doesnt lie, but hey, nobody is perfect. 4 kids certainly do not make people look younger, Mary as public person HAS to look good hence various treatments, make up on a constant basis, flying across the globe, everything comes at a price.

I too think Mary is looking perhaps not as refreshed as she was some 18 months ago, but the woman's also nearly 40 and it's natural that a few lines should start to appear. I occasionally have to remind myself that she is no longer the 32 year old she was when she wed, and add to that four children and a high pressured lifestyle (however cosy some people would prefer to describe it as, it is still highly demanding).

I think you've hit the nail on the head here. It all comes at a price.

Though I still think she looks fabulous, be it with a maturing appearance.
