A skirt would have been better with the jacket. Or a great sweater & scarf with the pants, but together, it's just not working.
DOM is correct in the statement - Frumpy.

I think if the slacks were a bit less flared, the look would have worked. However, I do love the idea of a skirt with the blazer and blouse, or a sweater with the existing slacks.

Yes a skirt would have been much better with the jacket.

Perhaps Stephanie is back to her original state which we saw earlier, before the wedding mavens turned her into Cinderella. She is more interested in things of the mind and spirit than in clothes? Could it be possible? Maybe Guillaume likes her that way? Maybe he is not primarily interested in clothes? I am not being snide, as I do like the well-dressed royals. Guillaume has had plenty of observation of the well-dressed and could want a shift.

yes its possible she likes it that way for bein' more comfortable. but looking at the picture, MT was really well dressed, it was weird in my eyes because it looked like Stephanie was the mother-in-law and MT the daughter-in-law (clothes point of view)...
she needs more tips from MT (like she did with Elie Saab before)

Stéphanie in China

The red colour is nice, but that's all. The dress isn't well tailored and the hem line looks odd. She should have left the shawl away. The shoes don't save this outfit.

A lack of make up, and the scarf is unnecessary. This jacket looks rather nice, but the scarf covers too much of it.

This could have looked much nicer without the scarf.

She looks frumpy in these outfits and they seem to make her look a lot of heavier than she really is. She should put more effort to her hair.

Stephanie looks really lovely in strong, jewel tones, so the red dress was a nice choice. The shawl was all right, but maybe a jacket or cardigan would have looked better. Don't really care for the second outfit, and in the third one, the scarf is one unnecessary accessory.

I agree. It's her first foreign trip, newly married, plus the recent death of her mother and her fathers frailty...no lie, she's probably dealing with a lot. Let's give her some time!

Stéphanie at a visit to contemporary ART workshops yesterday.

The jacket makes her look big, the pants are ugly and the scarf ruins just everything. The bag is beautiful though. By dressing this way she looks much older than she really is.

ITA, the piping on the jacket makes her look wider and the pants are just plain ugly. The scarf is enormous and equally unflattering.

She's obviously a scarf-maniac. Either she's easily getting colds or she is insecure and wants to hide behind scarfs.

She should have removed the scarf once inside. I also think the bag in cute but not with this outfit.

The scarf goes well with the jacket piping at least....? I'm trying to be positive. And her hair looks great.

But overall I agree with the things everyone else has said.
