I'd have much rather seen Mary wear the divine burgandy off the shoulder evening dress which was worn to the NSW State Dinner at Government House in 2005. For the life of me, I cannot understand why the Crown Princess has not worn it since.

It really is a stunning garment.

Yes, and this ruins the whole look for me

Other than that I thought that it was a simple yet elegant look for Mary, not boring at all. But the transparent material - now we all know that Mary is wearing a corset underneath - is a big no-no.

The corset is Part of the dress. How else should it stay in place?

Yes at least once; at an evening event at the royal shooting society if I remember correctly. I would guess that the brooch is part of the dress but I don't know.
But the brooch is the reason why it is right not to wear a necklace as well. It would have ruined the clean lines of the outfit IMO.

Spot on UserDane! It was at the royal shooting society for an Australian event.

That was indeed a WOW dress and I too wonder why she never wore it again. Perhaps she didn't feel comfortable in it?
Anyhow, I think it would have been inappropriate for a rather low-key event in honour of foreign royals.

I don't it's a perfectly respectable evening dress and was already worn to an official function. Are you suggesting my dear ricarda that it's respectable enough to have worn it in the company of HM Queen Elizabeth's state representative, HE the Governor of NSW, but that it wouldn't have been respectable enough to have worn it in the equated company of TRH the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall?

Not that it really matters, of course. It wasn't worn and that's that.

The silhouette of the dress is flattering and perfect for her figure.The colour is not bright or extravagant but very understated and elegant,I like the look.

I didn't mean it's not respectable.
But it is a WOW dress, a perfect dress for the person taking center stage (as Mary did in Australia, she was the honoured guest then).
Yesterday evening Camilla&Charles were the honoured guests.

Although brown is not my favourite colour I think Mary - as usual - chose a very appropriate outfit (and the brown actually goes well with Camilla's blue dress).

I don't see which dress you are talking about. Mary wore so many stunning dresses, but your comment make me curious, and want to see how it looks like, It's possible to post a picture of it?

The design of this particular gown worn at the gala evening is exquisite. However I do not think the shade is very complimentary on Mary. She seems to really illuminate in the brighter colours.

Both gowns' designs are princesses' dresses, the burgundy one has some old touchs like Impress Sissi's dresses, and the brown one is more modern and subtil. Personally, if I had to choose between the two gowns, I will go for the brown one.

So far, from all what Mary wore, the top one to me is the red gown she wore at her pre-wedding, but that was the wedding.

I now better understand your reasoning. Thank you :)

Though if I'm being honest, Camilla's gown is not what I'd consider WOW (not saying that you've suggested that), though it is one of the more flattering in terms of giving her waist shape and not accentuating her tricky figure as is often the case.

I do not care for the off the shoulder neckline as it lends no flattery to her shoulders which are not particularly attractive in any case; though the colour itself suits her well and her hair was styled very nicely. It sat well and the length is decently managed for a change (normally I find it either too fluffy or too flat).

I like the model of the dress, but I really don't like the color. And Mary isn't beautiful as she can be in that dress

Thank you. I think is a brooch.
