That is exactly my thoughts too. Mary is a slim princess, but I've always thought that she looked very healthy.

Mary looks lovely in that brown dress tonight, it's very simple and elegant and she glows in these pictures

I always liked Mary in brown so this dress looks good.

IMO a rather boring monochrome in terms of color and quite unimaginative as far as strapless evening dresses in chiffon go.
The look would have benefited from some more contrast and most of all from wearing a necklace.

I have to agree, the color is not great on her. The style is okay, but nothing to get excited over.

Pretty style, but should have been in a better color. It's not one of her "wow" looks; very understated.

The brown gala look is all right. Crown Princess Mary decided to play it safe.

I think the dark brown dress is very elegant, I especially like the jeweled waist, and the gather of the top.

I usually like Mary in browns but this one is underwhelming, though she looks lovely otherwise.

Mary looks really pretty this evening but I myself am not fond of brown in general. A great color and this dress would be so much better.

I agree with your evaluation here. I love the style of the dress, but the color is a little dull. I think it would have been stunning in a dark jewel tone (sapphire, perhaps).

I personally find the choice of this subtil color came out beautifully. The contrast of the chocolate brown of the dress with her porcelaine skin is definitely well-constructed. To me less is more, and the belt/brooch and the earrings are enough. The whole look is understated yet very appealing and refined.

I also find this to be a terrabily chic look. Even though a few have mentioned that she is slim but not thn, only a very slim woman could war such a draped, from the rear, and gathered dress. Also, she is able to wear strapless without the slouch which often accompanies the look, no bulges or droops.

I find this to be a very elegant and understated look and I love it. There is no need to be always WOW... Sometimes less is more.

Mary looks good but has looked better. Top part is too plain for me, no jewelry with a strapless dress is just too boring for me. She could've gotten away with her hair being left open and styled nicely, maybe soft curls have pulled back.
