That shade of pink is indeed gorgeous. She looks pretty!

I'm on the fence about this dress. The color is okay, but the cut/fit is bothering me, especially around her bust and mid section, it could almost be a little bit bigger in those areas. The shoes with this are awful, those bows on the toe are the worst thing I've seen in a while.

I agree about the fit but I love that she wore a strong color.

I think Stephanie has a thick midline like Charlene of Monaco. But unlike Charlene, Stephanie does not have the height and shoulders to draw attention away from that area and as a result she sometimes looks matronly even in clothes that are youthful and pretty.

A good tailor could easily solve the problem. The color is beautiful and flattering, imo.

Princess Stephanie looks nice. The color of the dress fits her. She should wear dresses in vivid colors.

And... today PS didn't have a scarf/shawl

The dress wasnt pretty at all and I wouldve never guessed it was by Prada. The bottom layer looks like an add on because the actual dress was too short for her. Also, I find the dress slightly tight waist up. I liked her hair and the soft make up.

I liked the color on her and thought it was one of the best things she's worn. A nice neclace would have helped.

Is the dress Prada? I thought she was wearing head-to-toe Valentino when I saw it.

I think she looks beautiful but the bows in the sandals are a bit too big

I think you are right, those who think Stephanie has a somewhat thick midsection. It may be why there are occasional pregnancy rumors for her on the forum. And yes, Moonmaiden, I think good tailoring could fix that thick mid-section look. It is beyond me why a person in her position does not have someone looking into this. The family may just be against tailoring? Want to look natural? But the men all are well-tailored. hmmm. Maria Teresa looked well tailored, though.
Claire's father and brother are so tall that one can just see the next generation, unless MT's genes kick in.

The dress that Stephanie chose is a very lovely shade of pink, and she looks so pretty in it. However, those shoes remind me of the ones in the dress-up corner of my preschool classroom. Something else would have looked better.

Her hair looks great, she's beaming, it's a great color on her and no scarf! Yippee! Her clutch and shoe color look great.

I like her pink dress, but I don't love it.

I may be the only one, but I think the toe bows are cute! I would wear those shoes, and it's nice to see Stephanie expressing a girly, fun side.

Now that I see Stephanie in a full view picture, the pink\coral Prada including (bow) shoes & purse with up hairdo look very stylish. I like her look. Regarding fit, I suppose it depends on how Stephanie came about acquiring this dress but it seems Prada would provide their clients with a stylist & seamstress/fitter.

I like the shoes; they're very frivolous and match her clutch, and it adds some interest to a simple outfit devoid of decoration. The color is beautiful on Stephanie, although I do agree that it could have been better fitted across the midriff. I don't think I care for the tiered hemline, either.

That's a beautiful photo of Stephanie and Guillaume. Whoever did the bride's updo must have done Stephanie's as well, her hair looks perfect!
