We've seen the dress before:

a) 2006, b) 2006, c) 2008 and d) 2011

Also a flash back from earlier years of the award show:

a) 2006 - dress from Heartmade, b) 2007 - dress from Prada, c) 2008 - dress from Niels Kristiansen, d) 2009 - dress from Prada, e) 2010 and f) 2011 (i think this dress is also from Prada)

My favourites are 2008 and 2009 - lovely.

Mary looks lovely. I love her dresses.
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.

I loved the 2008 it was I think the length I liked the most a cocktail length and the skirt so straight. The colour was also a knock out IMO

I don't like this dress, it's ugly, too much going on and the colors are strange. This piece is hard to wear. Mary looked good only in 2006, I like silver shoes and hairstyle.
About the appearances at Culture Prize I like dresses from 2008 and 2009 - chic, good colors and eye-catching details. This year is nt the best. But not that bad as 'gothic' look from 2006.

Mary looks beautiful as far as hair and make up go, and the fit of the dress is great. But the dress itself, not so much. I don't like the grey and browns together.

I bet Mary has pictures like that printed out for her, like the ones Davis she can see what she wore previous years and not double up and wear the chosen dress a different way to the other four occasions she has before...

This is not one of my favorites on Mary.. It is just so .. odd looking. Her hair and makeup are flawless. She has grown so much in her princess role and is The most elegant and regal looking of all the CP, imo. This dress just does not do it for me this one time!

What a great collection of flashbacks! They show Mary's constant evolution, and thankfully she has polished her look as I really dislike the dress from 2006! My best looks for Mary at this event are in 2008, 2009, and 2010. 2007 is neutral for me -- the dress is pretty but something is off with the overall look. Although I'm not a fan of the dress she wore to the event this year, I think it is her best look in this dress.

Thanks for the flashback! I love love 2009. this year's dress is just so ugly, ugly colors, shape, gathers and details.
Her hair and makeup are the best, however.

It is a Prada dress. I do like it, the colors are a nice combination and the tailoring is quite different to many of the dress we see/seen. I like the look of it being "couture look". Mary's hair is really nice, it is too classic to go with the look but nevertheless the overall is quite neat. This is a dress which is different color and cut wise, not something we usually see Mary in (even if it is a repeat it is one of those few creative/detailing dresses).

Mary herself does look lovely but the dress is so aweful. Definitely a bad advertisement for Prada. The silver grey bodice clashes with the brown and caramel skirt, which already looks badly constructed. In fact this dress almost looks "home made" using a top from one dress and a skirt and sleeves from another dress. Not at a flattering item nor an elegant statement for that matter.

She probably wanted something different but this dress isn't particularly pretty. Nothing special IMO.
