The red dress is nice, but I don't care for the chevron detail on the bust. I think that it would have looked better without that detail.

In Belgium no-body knows who pays all her Nathan clothes.. I read once that when she is abroad the The Foreign Affairs are paying her clothes ??.
She seems to have an unlimited amount and doesn't know very well what recycling is.

I love the big floral-print coat that she was wearing in the first photo. It is so modern and pretty. I also loved the mocha-colored jacket that she wore with the cream trousers.

Crown Princess Mathilde does recycle her clothes. You can check this thread http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...on-5543-2.html. Perhaps, the House of Nathan gives her a discount and loan most outfits.

Al Bina , Someone of Nathan's House told me that Mathilde has very long legs and that they had to make special trousers for her.
Nathan 's famous reputation is made since 1999 because have 2 wonderful Princesses : Mathilde and Claire.
Before 1999 Queen Paola prefered Armani.

If Crown Princess Mathilde and Princess Claire have contributed to the rise of Nathan in the fashion world, the designer can show his gratitude by giving them a certain discount. As for custom-tailored trousers, how many pants did Crown Princess Mathilde buy? I would guess not enough to make her family financially broken, thereby causing the public outcry.

She is also very good very flower motifs (remember that gorgeous evening gown in that chiffon fabric, old-fashioned by some standards, yet one of my favorites of all princess gala gowns of all time?) That chocolate jacket is perfect, yummy ! And lime looks good on her, a startling contrast to chocolate, climate-wise, (like drinking hot chocolate versus eating a pistachio ice-cream). I am not keen on the leopard motif, but otherwise, between her surprising yet successful choices and the more conservative ones on which she puts her personal imprint, it's always a pleasure looking at Princess Mathilde's fashion thread. Besides, what a lovely face, and modern, easy-going hairstyle that frames her face so nicely, emphasizing her well-defined yet sweet features.

The trousers suits suited Crown Princess Mathilde nicely. A soft beige jacket with a flowery pattern and red pants was quite lively. I liked the red wedge shoes (I hope I am correct since there is no good photo of shoes) A safari-style brown jacket with beige trousers and a soft lime green jacket with white trousers were well-chosen and comfortable to undertake engagements.

I like the red outfit from the 13th - while the overall style wouldn't have been my choice, the neckline is nice and it looks festive.

The earlier outfit, I am not so fond of. Whilst it has her normal nice jewellery & styled hair etc, it looks more casual - more "Mathilde" than "Princess Mathilde" - and even then is not my favourite.

I like the combination of an A-line skirt with a festive pattern and knitted jacket with ruffles making the whole look softly feminine. Dark brown and white colours became Crown Princess Mathilde nicely. Although I liked the jewellery set, I would say that the necklace seemed too much for the jacket with ruffles. A red coat was an all right choice on Crown Princess Mathilde's part. A bright hue of the red colour enhanced her complexion. Hairstyle and make-up were flawless on both occasions.

Red coat is fantastic. CP looks very good in that colour
From the earlier outfit I like printed beige skirt, boots and the jewellery set. I don't like the jacket/sweater - is too casual and destroyes whole look. (IMO)

Wasn't it the same outfit Mathilde wore while arriving in London for Prince Charles' 60 birthday last November??
