Not liking this look at all, it gives me the snow white / evil queen vibe. Too dark and the cape doesnt help.

I favor the top of the black evening gown, but would have like to see the bottom in a different color, and without all the strange random pleating.

I am not sure about the gown .. I am thinking it is a bit boring it's nice and I love black I don't know that she could have worn a colour I love her eye shadow though.

There really seems to be an unspoken "requirement" to wear recycled fashion an adapt jewelry in various ways.

Fits well and is an ok outfit but I think it's a bit boring to be owen with a tiara and it's not a tiara dress at all.

Mary looks stunning and very regal, imho. I just wish that she had anther tiara to wear, one that had more sparkle. She cannot wear the ruby and diamond one with everything!

^yes i agree, although i love this outift and tiara, a more glamourous and sparkly one would fit better. she could do a Maxima and wear lots of tiaras, but it seems Queen Margrethe doesnt allow her to more choices;_;

It would be nice if we could see Marie and Mary lend QMII's small turquoise tiara once in a while in the future - now that we have seen princess Theodora wear it.
Wouldn't mind if QMII would share the Baden Palmette tiara as well with both her D-I-Ls - it would look amazing with their dark hair.
Some people say that cats are sneaky, evil, and cruel. True, and they have many other fine qualities as well.

First impressions of Crown Princess Mary's gala dress this evening - again a dark colour,
but very lovely, especially as to the combination of the jewellery:

Too dark again but I like the neckline, and the ruby parure elevates tonight's look. Her hair is absolutely lovely.

Wow! I would like to look that boring! She looks elegant and very regal!
She is wearing a dress that was first seen in 2004 - 7-8 years ago! I noticed that Queen Margrethe's dress is of the same fabric and color!

Dark again. But absolutely lovely.
I like that the fabric is similar to the Queen's.

And rubies. Yay!

I love the rubies and the dress is beautiful. But black just looks depressing at such a fantastic event. Colour please Mary!

Wow okay then. Still looks depressing that dark a dress. Mary's stunning velvet red dress would have been lovely or perhaps the one shoulder green dress worn for King CGs 60th. Or perhaps even something new.
