Pretty picture.
I think that in 25 or 50 years' time we will still look at her photos and say, "Ah, yes, that was/is her Style" - i.e. she is true to her own style :)

I have to admit, this young woman intrigues me. She is very brave when it comes to trying new styles or perhaps it is just that her marriage has put her squarely in the public eye and we are seeing Stephanie's twist on Royal Dressing as opposed to a private citizen in mostly casual attire.

I believe you are right. The colour is gorgeous and the hat is fabulous so, that just leaves the cut or fit. Hmm . . .

Princess Stephanie Of Luxembourg And Prince Guillaume Of

Oh dear. That is a seriously unflattering lace coat thingie . . . But the hat and her hair are terrific. A bit serious though . . .

Ah, that's better. Doesn't she look like she's having fun, and she looks like she's wearing the hat instead of it wearing her.

As do I. However, I think she would be wise to not continue to take her lead from her M-I-L. She is far to young to try to look that sedate.

Now this ensemble is absolutely gorgeous. It suits Stephanie and is less like something M-T would wear. The colour is flattering and she has accessorised with an elegant clutch and matching shoes. I am not sure what actual colour they are but the complement the dress beautifully.

Now that is a serious up do she is sporting. Very nice. Very elegant.

And aren't these the sweetest little bit of nonsense to finish off the ensemble.

She only does cocktail and wedding dresses, and stays quite classical, but does it while mixing fabrics and materials in a very qualitative way that you don’t see very often ....fell in love with the wedding dresses, made of fine lace and soft fabrics."

I then remembered a very early picture of Stephanie when she was much, much younger http://media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/73...c9bbd378a4.jpg The Le Grelle designs and early picture of Stephanie may give insight into Stephanie's fashion choice... at least this time 'round.
Wow, does she know how to wear a hat or what! She looks great and she knew, even then, that hair is an accessory!

I think you may well be right.

Countess Stephanie De Lannoy And Prince Guillaume Of

Check out this ensemble. I love how she has swept up her hair and used her earrings and clutch to create a 'pop' of colour not to mention whimsy. The up do creates a lovely balance for the neckline and shape of her top and allows her earrings to finesse the 'look'.

I think Stephanie is going to be fun to watch because for her 'demure' doesn't necessarily mean boring!

I think she looked very nice at the wedding. I must be the only one but I think the dress/coat was fantastic. One of the best things she has worn, IMO. And the sandals are good too. But the hat is terrible and she could have chosen a much better clutch

Lovely color but that's all I like. The hat simply horrible!

I agree with you, it was a very nice outfit, but the hat was uggly.

I liked the dress, hated the shoes and the hat.

Nine times out of ten that is the way it is when I see her...I like what she is wearing but there is always something to throw it off....

I wish she had worn her hair like this at her wedding:

Yes, this is one of my favorite pictures. I like the way her updo is styled including hair colour. In fact, I like her whole ensemble. I believe this was taken during the early part of their engagement (before Stephanie's mother passed away).

Yes, that photo was taken on their engagement day. The death of the Comtesse de Lannoy took place exactly four months to the day later.

In the Elie Saab sketch of Stephanie's bridal gown, that is the way the model's hair was styled. I think an updo like this would have anchored the tiara and veil better. Instead, Stephanie grew her fine textured hair almost down to her waist for the wedding and pinned the elaborate chignon low in the back. It was extremely pretty, but the lacquer and gel caused the dainty de Lannoy tiara to slip back on her head, and her hair began falling from the hairpins in the back even before the ceremony was over.

This might not have happened with her hair piled high like it was in the engagement photos.

Now I am very pleased that she didn't wear her hair like that at her weddin. A good hairdo for an engagement, but at a wedding I expect "tidier" hair. The lock at the side of her head is not what I call "tidy" for a wedding.

I haven't seen any slip of the de Lannoy tiara and falling hair at all, I don't think the person who did her hair would have been so "neglectant" as to allow that to happen. Had she had the hairdo that she had on the engagement picture, then I think the lock on the left side would have distracted from the de Lannoy family tiara.
IMO everything was in the right proportions but then, one can't please all people.

She looked so lovely and so happy I winced when I saw her Tiara tilt backwards like that.

Unfortunately it did happen and to this moment I can't figure out when they managed to straighten it up again.

As you can see, this had nothing to do with "pleasing everyone" but what did, in fact, actually happen. So yes, I think a little more "bulk" at the top would have given them more to work with and anchor the tiara more securely.

That being said, I have to admit, the back view of her hair was pure magic!

I enjoyed her wedding-day hairstyle a lot,it was different from other hairstyles I have seen and I love the way they placed the veil,it looked so elegant and beautiful :-)
Personally I think that we are seeing a perfect example of the old saying that "inner values are much more important than appearances"-HGD Stéphanie is definitely a very kind,intelligent & level-headed woman, I have found her charming and interesting from the very beginning because she always has a lovely attitude and warm smile IMO her outfit choices have been ups and downs, at times I was overjoyed and happy to see her looking absolutely fabulous and sometimes I have wondered who has talked her into something that unflattering...nevertheless I always have the impression that her sophisticated personality is stronger than her outfit choices and I also like that she is trying out different styles and colours!

Guillaume and Stephanie attended a gala this evening.

This is nice because it's simple and in a strong color. This time her ubiquitous scarf works.

(...) While her wardrobe choices may not always be to our liking, I give her a lot of credit for wearing what she feels suits her. I bet she feels very comfortable and confident in the attire she chooses, and that's one of the reasons we see so much poise. She's not worried about any malfunctions, or articles of clothing feeling too tight, or too loose. As a teacher, I know the feeling. I choose comfort over style, because I want to feel comfortable, when I need to play on the floor with my students, and not worry about a shirt riding up, or jeans sliding down.

I think Stephanie is a lovely young women, I just think she doesn't dress age appropriate. She is making herself look older.

The dress looks a little too big, but it's definitely a great improvement. It has a nice neckline. Love the colour and the shawl isn't bad, but I would pick a different shade.

This time Stéphanie has chosen a very flattering colour and dress, you simply can´t go wrong with a shift-dress!
Good to see that she has found a beautiful way of wearing her scarf,this time it looks very pretty :-)

The colour of the dress is beautiful, but otherwise the dress doesn't fit very well. And Stephanie's hair looks sloppy.
