I like her a lot and she represents herself, Luxembourg, her husband, family and in laws very well.
Fully agree to all. She just need to forget the scarf at home.

I don't understand all the comments about the scarf! Did I miss a picture where she was wearing the scarf?

^^ The scarf didn't catch my attention too. I only noticed it in the video when she sat and put the scarf on her legs

She carried it folded and then placed it on her lap.

Exactly, which is why I don't understand what the big deal is. It was an accessory that she brought along, maybe as a precaution. I understand the frustration with HRH's clothes, but there's no real reason IMO to focus soooooooo much attention on this scarf.

[If Guillaume should wish for a "perfect gait" he could purchase a Lippizaner horse from the Spanish Riding School in Vienna,they are great in every way ]//quote blauerengel

This comment made me laugh and laugh....so funny and so true!

I also 100% agree with Meraude. Royal watchers can get their fashion fix from one of several cookie-cutter princesses dotting the landscape these days. Guillaume married a lovely, intelligent and sweet girl who pleases him, his family and his country, so that should be good enough.

She may well be all those things you say she is but that does not mean in a fashion thread we have to say she is well dressed. It is quite possible, even easy, to differentiate between the person and the clothes she wears. She may be a lovely person but IMO she needs someone to help her with her wardrobe, like making sure clothes are pressed and fitted properly.

Yup! I like Stephanie and I'd love to see her looking her best. There's no malice in hoping she'll learn what suits her. She doesn't need to be on the cutting edge of fashion so much as she needs to find a good fit and learn what colors flatter her skin tone.

The Duchess of Cambridge is a good example- Kate has a very defined style that some people find boring, but her clothes are almost always well tailored, classic and appropriate. I'd like to see Stephanie find a similar look.

I never intimated that she was well dressed and I agree that she needs some fine tuning. I've said so many times right here in this thread. I also don't think she's as bad as some of you say. She's worn several perfectly lovely outfits since she married but a few posters here make it sound like every appearance has been an imitation of Minnie Pearl at the Grand Ole Opry.

She is never going to be a fashion plate even if and when she finds a better tailor is all I'm saying. Waiting and hoping for it to happen makes us all look like Charlie Brown, waiting for the Great Pumpkin to appear.

And btw, I looked at the clip above and see nothing wrong with her walk...even if she doesn't glide like a swan.

Speaking of the Duchess of Cambridge I agree that she looks smashing most of the time. But some of her choices leave me cold, particular her yen for skin tight pencil leg jeans that leave nothing to the imagination. I am thinking of the ones she wore last summer at the Games. Those were neither appropriate nor dignified, and even if Stephanie had the figure for them I bet she would have the sense and the class never to wear them publically.

*lol*,I had to look up "Minnie Pearle" after reading this line: "She's worn several perfectly lovely outfits since she married but a few posters here make it sound like every appearance has been an imitation of Minnie Pearl at the Grand Ole Opry."

Minnie´s colourful hats bring a smile to my face, I find them extremely cute and for some occasions (Mardi Gras!) these hats might be fun to wear,but not for a dignified royal lady for a state event;-)

I find HGD Stéphanie has a lot of nice styles and outfits as well,only some of them did not seem very dynamic or modern to me and some did not have a good fit. Just like everyone else here,I would wish her to have less fashion faux pas-because I like her a lot & I want her to look great!

The Duchess of Cambridge dresses well most of the time,maybe the skinny jeans were not my cup of tea,but for state eventy she always gets classy,elegant dresses that fit well.

For HGD Stéphanie I would rather take Princess Mathilde of Belgium as fashion example,as they are both rather conservative & discreet,very little interested in superficial things,both highly educated & intellectual and don´t wish to be in the spotlight,especially not because of their appearance!
(Of course,I know that they are different in age,but Princess Mathilde´s style with a few adaptions could be used for younger ladies as well.)
Mathilde has a simple,elegant look and prefers comfortable clothes,without too much fuss about it. Most of the time I like what she wears,she has nice tailored clothes and choses good colours too.

true. stephanie may not be the most glamorous, but some of us actually think it's better that way :) there's other royals who can suit those looking for a clothes horse...
i love seeing these two out and about, whatever stephanie wears.
her similarity with mathilde is evident: both noblewomen who didn't need to marry a prince to live the way they do now, so no need to show off their newly acquired wardrobe, both simplistic in the way they dress yet highly educated.

As with everything in life-practice makes perfect & a good technique can also be helpful!
I have seen her walk in flats and heels and it is just in high heels that she walks awkwardly.
She should stick to low heels like P Anne and QUII.

The pants have the cut problem as every of her pants. Apart from it, I think she looks amazing. Had the pants a good cut and this outfit would be amazing

I thought that Stephanie looked lovely at the visit to the European Parliament. I really like the colour of her dress, it looks good on her. Her clutch bag and jewellery are nice too.

I really like her jacket, mainly because blue is my favourite colour . Her trousers and clutch bag are nice too, and so are her shoes. I like her hair style as well. Overall, I think she looks lovely.

Few times I like what Stephanie wears, but she looks lovely today
That shade of blue flatters her face a lot and the jacket itself is very pretty.

She doesn´t seem a very fashion-concious kind of girl, and I´m fine with that.
