Her skin is damaged by the sun (she lived for many years in Australia) and now after many cosmetic treatments (especially peelings) she must be more careful. But compared to 11 years younger Kate, Mary looks really good.

Mary wore a repeated but modified gown at the New Year's reception:

Even though I do prefer the original version,I thought she looked great! I love the color and the jewels.

There would have been a lot of (wasted) fine velvet in that dress if it were not modified and reworn...

Very pretty! I love the jewels in her hair. I first posted they were from a brooch, but I see in another post that they are part of the tiara.

I tend to believe it's a new dress made by the same person who made the other red velvet dress. I understand when royals recycle, but I do grave for new gala dresses occasionally.

I love this red velvet gown. So lovely, sensual and elegant. Then again, I'm a sucker for velvet gowns :)

I wasn't aware that the cleavage stands out. To me the colors look nice on both of them. Fred looks sharp in the uniform with the black hat on. Of course Mary's old fashioned velvety gown looks good in that pose. They looked pretty once again and I just hope they and everyone had a fabulous new year's celebration. Things seem so good for them and the world so, it's nice to see this new day dawn. Good luck people.

I am not sure whether this is the same dress with modifications as worn a few years ago. It pretty much looks the same but the modifications are too many I think. So maybe it really is a new dress that reminds us to the one she has worn before. But I am not very sure on it..

Mary looks sensational and that's a gorgeous purple velvet gown that so flatters her coloring. The style is really beautiful as well and that looks like a fishtail train, if I'm not mistaken. I really like that jewel in her hair; I believe it's part of the ruby parure from another thread I've seen.

I agree. The original dress was elegant and flattering and, if this is the same dress, I would go so far as to say it had been ruined. The front sillohette is completely straight and figure hugging, and not in a flattering way. It needed a little volume at the waist and in the front of the skirt (a la Queen Margarethe) to give it the required gravitas for such an occasion.

I would go so far as to say that a fabulous train is not sufficient to overcome the obvious deficiencies in the front and, in the end, fabulous colour and material notwithstanding, it did not meet the required standard for a Gala Gown.

The dress looks nice on the Danish crown princess although I don't like that it's velvet but it's nice anyways.

I think it's the same dress that's been altered because of the new, set in waist, and also because of the "skimpiness" of the front as Marg above mentioned. I remember thinking the maternity dress was skimpy in front also.
The maternity version had a scoop neck and empire waist. All you would have to do is to cut off the original bodice on the front from the waist up, ripping out the sides. Put in a new front bodice piece, stitch it across the waist and sides. Then add a new waistband all around. The bell-like sleeves are the same.
We have a really nice picture of the back and the train, I don't remember the old train.
All this depends upon saving some old fabric and having it match after 5 years, lol!
