And also the event was not proper for that dress, pricness Mary wore it for a gala night...a suit will be just fine here...sometimes people just try so hard to be in fashion and they do these kind of mistakes...really a full catastrophy, no words!!!!!!

I thought I saw a horror movie when that pictures crossed my eyes.
I have no more words to describe how awful this is...
Unfortunately, sometimes I feel like me and every ordinary women out there dresses up way better than this sartorial choices that we see every then and now on women that are called PRINCESS!

There's a difference in a fashion miss and dressing ridiculously. IMO, the latter is an insult to the people who organized the event she turned up at. The whole conversation turns from the purpose of the event to her looking like a bag lady. Like all princesses, she represents the people of her country, and I think she should give a little more thought to what she puts on.

Mary's ensemble was a fashion miss, but it was not put together in a ridiculous manner.

Very pertinent. Mary's dress was very appropriate, just some people did not like.
But MM was like a Carnaval

The dress is nice but MM ruined it by wearing it (a summer dress!) with black stockings and boots and a blazer on top. I wonder what on earth she was thinking. Nothing in her outfit matches anything else out there... proper messy, this is.

It's the very same H&M dress that CP Mary wore during the Finnish State visit about 10 days ago.
Why these dark hosiery ? I love the dress but this black !!!

Spot on,Gracie Giraffe
Usually,there are some people pro and contra,but in this case I find that we are united in the opinion that the design of the dress is not good!

I find Mary looked nice,except for that strange hemline
The lace and feminine,elegant silhouette was flattering,but the the asymetric hem was just strange and ruined the look for me.If she cut the dress to make a hem that has the same length on the front and backside,the dress would look nice.
With our dear Princess Mette-Marit I do not only object the hemline (which is entirely the fault of the designer who was trying hard to be cutting-edge) but the accessoires made it much worse...
To me it seems that she does not care a lot about fashion and superficial things,because sometimes she wears unflattering outfits and the next time she turns up in a robe that looks absolutely glamorous and fantastic!
I do not see a certain "trend" or "signature style" like I do with other ladies...which I find rather sad,because she looks great and could improve a lot with a good stylist who is honest with her and choses the right silhouettes,material and colour for her type.
That is IMO the most important mission: To find the right type of clothes,colours and patterns for your unique personality & figure,because everyone has different features and proportions.Everyone should try to give more attention to the good features (e.g if you have nice legs or pretty eyes-show it) to lead it away from your weaker points-because everyone has bad and good parts that need to be presented in the right way

I just want to know: Who is her boss and why is she not reprimanded for dressing too horribly beyond words, so frequently no less? Does no one in the royal family ever say anything? You know, something like: doing these public engagements is a job and with any job, especially a high-profile one, a serious dressing effort is required, even if you don't give a hoot about fashion.

I would think that a stylist would be on staff for such a senior member of royalty. MM needs a dresser to help her with her choices; sometimes, it just gets too farcical and one wonders if there is anyone there or if she makes her own fashion decisions. And if she doesn't care about fashion and just makes mistakes due to her indifference to what looks good (or not), then she definitely needs help.

I don't think there is a stylist on call , she has been a princess for a long time she should know how to dress appropriately by now. She just seems to be doing her own thing. Pretty much liker her sister in law.

And if she had a stylist or an assistant to dress up, what do you think she or he could say no for the CP of Norway if she or he see that she selects bad clothes?
I mean a worker doesn't say no for the boss...

I like both styles-the one of Mary is elegant and sophisticated, the one of Mette is more "fashionistas"...I think both wanted to show how you can dress something in various style...I like both.....and I find it good, that Mette is not so typical as others VIP....:-)

I am sure she has a stylist like most royals do nowadays.
But as I have already mentioned,it is important to have someone who is HONEST and tells her what looks good on her.As I know from personal experience, some outfits look nice in the mirror,but when you see them on a photo it looks horrible

BTW:The delicate lace adornment of the dres is very cute,it can be seen in the close-up picture,just like I am happy with Mette-Marit´s natural make-up and hair :-)

I would not be so harsh with the Princesses (of course I expect them to wear proper attire), but I find it much more important that they have a kind personality,care about their country & family and support charity!

What is wrong with the hairdo? She just has shoulder length, blond, straight hair here, that clearly has been styled. What is wrong with that?

It's too bad if Mette-Marit has a stylist who's not honest with her; what a waste of money (which I'm sure she can well afford) and what a disservice. After all, what are you hiring them for? I don't think it would do the stylist's reputation any good either if it were known that he/she was less than honest with the client, but that's just how I look at it. I'm sure any good experienced stylist worth his/her salt can diplomatically suggest fashion that flatters her without MM getting insulted. Certainly other royal ladies with stylists are often in the same situation where there may be a difference of opinion, but with collaboration a suitable look will result.

Other than that, I can only suggest a style intervention by Clinton and Kelly, the fashion gurus of "What Not to Wear."

I fully agree with you,Baroness of Books!
A fashion stylist should be like a good friend-you should be as honest as possible & able to tell them everything, even if it is not so pleasant to listen to.
A stylist should tell the customer if a certain pattern looks disadvantageous or if a certain colour makes them look pale etc. Of course always in a friendly & polite way-but it is better to have a stylist or friends telling you "Well,this look is not flattering" than showing up in such an ill-fitting outfit that does not do justice to you. Because,as I have previously written: Mette-Marit can also look absolutely fabulous if she choses the right designs and colours that suit her figure,look & personality :-)

Wow! Turns out I have a stylist in my life!

As for Mette-Marit, she has hit it out of the park so many times with her wardrobe choices, this is why I find her choices these days to be flabbergasting. It's as if she's in a funk of some sort.
