How beautiful she looks! The gown itself is standard, and not especially noteworthy, but who cares? It's great to see her, and her smile and the pride in Naruhito's face overshadows everything else.

It's wonderful to see Masako at the reception again! And she's returned in style. A beautiful and elegant gown.

She wore this dress with matching hat for Emperor Akihito's 84th birthday in 2017.

Thumbs up

She looks really wonderful in both sets of photos-always great to see her smiling. The white gown itself is kind of underwhelming but she looks great.

I love this color on Masako, and she looks happy and engaged! I will admit that I miss the hat a little bit--I loved that entire ensemble when she wore it in 2017. However, she still has the brooch, so I'm happy

CP Masako wore the same or similar dress in the 1990s.

Lovely look. But oh, how tense she looks in the shoulders in the second picture.

Masako looks lovely, and very appropriate for the ceremony. I'm not a huge fan of the bumper hats, but those seem to be the go-to look for many of her events. My one small quibble is that I wish she would ease off the eyebrow powder a little bit; it's a harsh look, especially since the current fashion in Asian countries is for a softer, lighter eyebrow.

And yes, such complex expressions on both Naruhito's and Masako's faces.

I'm glad it's a dress she hasn't repeated as much.

Screenshot from NHK:

Looks like it's the lace dress she wore at the Tonga coronation in 2015:

I believe you are correct. When you zoom in on the details of the fabric of the Tonga dress, it is very clear that they are one and the same, although I'm not sure if there has been additional ornamentation added to the bodice. Can you tell, Prisma?

I knew this dress looked familiar, but I wasn't able to match it in my searches. Thank you for doing the leg work!
