I do appreciate you placing blame on the maker and wearer!
I think what has made me cross is that it is beautiful material but made IMO so that the front and back are each cut in one piece - that way you could appreciate it. What a waste

Colorless, ill-fitting and made in an uncomfortable-appearing fabric which reminds me of heavy brocade chair upholstery... in style, it could be a provincial cocktail dress from ca. 1954.
Along with an odd hairdo and rather too bright lipstick definitely not a 'great' look but rather a miss.

The back of the dress is good - looks well made and interesting but which apprentice did they let loose on the front? Why didn't the front replicate the "V" at the back and the same beading??

The material is blerg. And the hair defies comment. Everyone who complains about DoC hair should look at this as a penance!

I loved everything about Mathilde´s look yesterday, that dress is amazing.
For me, she was the best dressed guest.

For a party at the Belgium House in London yesterday, July 28, Mathilde recycled the wonderful summer dress she has already worn on June 29:

Mathilde likes her coloured animal prints - yesterday for a reception celebrating the first Belgian bronze medal
of the 2012 Olympics at the Belgian House, she wore a red and white dress with that print - it reminded me of
her green and white animal print twin-set.

Really dislike the print of the dress. I also think the animal print dress is awful. Don't like the color but I do like the cut.

Im not sure whats up with the animal print but it is not flattering IMO.
Great to see her trying a new hairstyle but not sure if I like the front view of it.

Looks like a leopard just riddled with bullets and bleeding from a hundred wounds. Awful print.
