She looks so beautiful in this pink dress. This is definitely one of her most flattering colors. I had no idea she was so tall. I would love to have legs as long as hers.

I loved the black and white dress. The print is very modern, and the shape of the dress looked very good on Mathilde. I hate the beige/gold trousers. She looks terrible in them. They are not flattering at all. The top that she is wearing with these trousers is very pretty though. The outfit may have looked better if the top was a bit longer and if the trousers were cut differently.

I like the print on the black and white dress - the cut of the dress falters her figure

The top and trousers combo is awful - the top was first worn at a gala dinner about 2/3 years ago and was lovely then but combining it with those trousers is a big mistake. She has nearlt always favoured those wideleg trousers but this pair are far to long as you cant even see the tip of her shoes. http://i36.tinypic.com/r9o954.jpg
MAfan you mentioned in your post about how the outfit made her look fat - i agree they dont suit her figure at all. Since she had her last baby she has struggled to get the baby weight off (but i suppose after 4 kids thats what hapens to some women - Marie Chantal is an example of one of the lucky women who can regain her pre-baby weight even after 5 kids)

I meant that this outfit makes her look fat, while several other ones make her beautiful, despite the four pregnancies...

This last pants outfit is not a good one, I agree. But I don't think it's the pants, I think it's that the top hits her in a bad spot on her tummy. She needs a longer top. As far as the rest of outfits during this trip, some are good, some could be better is they fit a little looser.

More unflattering trousers in Indonesia:

The top is very nice, though. I really like the yellow color.

Whereas I agree that golden pants (see post #232) and grey ones (see post #235) could have been chosen better, I tend to share princess getrude's opinion that short tops in both case highlighted Crown Princess Mathilde's midsection, thereby making her appear fatter than she might really be. A yellow-grey silk top was comparatively better than a lacy golden one. At the same time, Crown Princess Mathilde did an amazing job pulling off an unusual combination of the bright cold yellow and grey colours. The makeup and hairstyle looked flawless.
Crown Princess Mathilde's white and black dress with an abstract pattern(see post #225) was an great choice because it is a variation of a shift dress, which draw little attention to the waist. I hope my definition of the aforementioned dress is accurate.

I find jade-/mint-coloured dress appropriate. Its soft colour brights out Crown Princess Mathilde's complexion, whereas an A-line (trapeze) silhouette masks the problematic zone, (i.e., the waistline). An embellished collar adds a festive touch this simple dress. It was wise on Crown Princess Mathilde's part to wear minimal jewellery.

I love this dress. The detail on the collar is really pretty, and the color looks wonderful with her complexion.

Here are some photos of a very pretty red dress worn to a gala in Indonesia on 27 November:

I like this dress too! The shape of the sleeves and collar is really nice.

The red dress is just perfect. Simple lines are enhanced by collar and sleeves. Did Crown Princess Mathilde recycle this red dress? I remember her in a similar dress attending some celebration in Belgium.

Well, two nice outfits, after some bad choice...
I hope that sometimes she recycles her dresses...like other human beings...

To me, Princess Mathilde's wardrobe on the whole trip amounted to a Natan desaster: An array of the most unflattering and unimaginative designs possible, and made without any good craftsmanship on top of it.
The only nice piece was the evening lace top, though ruined in the ill-advised combination with wide pants.
Natan has become the most under-talented but over-used Royal designer these days, and it escapes me why Princess Mathilde chooses to let him slowly but surely destroy her appearance. She only shows glimpses of her former considerable elegance anymore.
If she wants to show support for Belgian designers and stick to them, she should do so as there are many others, instead of exclusively promoting one Belgian designer's eyesore clothes all the time.
