Self Portrait dress which is identical to Victoria's but shorter sleeves.

I loved that mother and daughter were both wearing white dresses. Estelles dress was really classy and elegant. Victoria's dress was also interesting but surprisingly revealing for her.

the dress was a bit of a let down for me. For the baptism of her son, i expected something more elegant.

It was a bit of a let down for me also, polyesco. Her little Estelle looked more elegant than her Mother. Still she looked gloriously happy and that is all that is necessary.

Found a picture of Lucy Lu wearing the very similar Self Portrait dress in black. That fabric is popular with several designers and in several colors this year.

As it can be with wearing white when picture in light and on camera it can causes issues. This picture highlights perils of white as a outfit choice as it shows clearly the dress has a see through element. Would have preferred a different colour on Victoria today. The dress design itself was nice but just a different colour. Has the fascinator is a different shade of white and does not work with the dress.

Victoria's dress isn't to my personal taste, but it looked good on her and overall, she looked great.

Loved the look, but that dress needs a slip if you're going out in bright sunlight.

It looked to melike the dress was lined and then the sleeves and lower part of the hem and upper part of the bodice weren't. There were so many close up pictures of her with Oscar and her bosom area, all with lined white under the white holes. I don't understand the fuss

CP Victoria looked excellent. The eyelet/netting dress is unusual and while I wouldn't have chosen it, somehow she carries it off.

The dress looks good on Victoria! I don't think it's a big deal that the lining becomes transparent in the light, she has great legs and wears underwear. Also, I find it quite comforting for newbie princesses like Sofia and Catherine that also the experienced, royal born princess makes some mistakes with her wardrobe. Last year she wore a black see-through knitwear last year so it's not just a one time indicent, sometimes these things just happen.

I think she looked great! Loved the way she dressed Estelle, the perfect complement.

(Regarding the impression created with the one photo: Hard to 'predict' transparency' imo. So much at work in such a shot. The photographer simply lucked out (maybe). In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if there was some 'manipulation' to augment the illusion. I believe I see that in the front of her dress. All-in-all, harmless stuff, even if annoying. I personally don't believe it was as 'transparent' as that picture seems to suggest. JMO).

Well, if anything the transparency didn't show anything too revealing, aside from two gorgeous pair of legs XD. Victoria was wearing an apprporiate undergarment and, at least I, couldn't spot anything wrong in "private areas".

If it were truly transparent we would be seeing her undergarments. We don't, because it's not transparent. Somehow the illusion is created. It's a serendipitous snapshot (for the photographer).

I just think Victoria didn't consider the dress to be too flimsy. An error she seldom makes

I don't think the dress is revealing but I feel the dress is not elegant enough for a batipsm. Disappointed because Victoria dressed so nice for such events in the past.
