This is one of her better appearances. Cute, cheerful, and age appropriate.

I give her a "most improved" award for this one :)

To all those who (still) comment about her scarves: she hasn't been wearing them anymore for quite some time now.

Stephanie - Such an old looking outfit and the sleeves are outdated, seen and done. I think she should've gone for something much younger and a slightly stronger colour. Her make up was done well, she looked quite nice and not her usually dull looking.

Prince Guillaume Of Luxembourg And Princess Stephanie Of

No redeeming feature for me. The hat is too big (mind you, I think that would apply to anyone mad enough to wear it. Looks like a giant version of one of DoC's hats); the lace is aging; the colour washes her out and the actual style of outfit does nothing to enhance her shape.

Someone help her cos she is lovely!!

Yes, sadly this outfit is not flattering. I'll take pleasure in the lovely color.

Stephanie is in the unfortunate position of being a young woman with a pretty face....and the figure of a matron.(even though she has beautiful legs, second only to Kate)

She wears expensive and often quite beautiful clothes, but they rarely look quite right because of the fit. The only solution is to get expert tailoring, imo.

I assume, the clothes ARE tailored for her, still they look - ahem.....

Good News is that the colour (is this mint???) is a nice an fresh one, suits her lovely. The hat is .... but at least she gets Points for experiencing new things, no longer that boring! The Dress really is not that flattering (...)

I do not really understand why she does not ask to the designer/shop of every one of her outfits, to fit it in her body, this is always done in expensive clothes!

Stephanie can look fantastic when she dress in her age range. She tends toward either too young or too matronly.

I just saw a closeup and Stephanie's makeup was perfect...just flawless. The only other time it has looked so beautiful was at her own wedding last year.

And she has a complexion that glows!

The color of the outfit is so lovely, and Stephanie wears it quite well. However, the style of the dress and hat is something else entirely. Not the best choice, even if the color is spot on.

The big problem with Stephanie's dress is that it is sliding off her left shoulder. The jacket part of the dress has slidden, and the underdress has also drooped so that it's longer than the other side. She needs to attach the jacket with a pin if necessary. I used to have this trouble with one shoulder lower than the other and always had to pin one side. The other option would be to tailor the dress and jacket so they would fit closer on the left side and not slide. I am surprised no one else noticed this, as I think the dress would have looked 50% better if this droop problem had been solved.
I like the crazy hat just because it's jolly and festive--certainly nothing to be taken seriously, and from their expressions (the family's) I gather that they were having a whale of a good time. Probably had been feasting and festing the night before and too tired to pin a dress so it fit just right. No matter--they had a wonderful time!

Mint color perfect.

As always Tessy looks simple and unstudied and perfect. Is she naturally so perfect or does she just have good clothes sense?

Poor Stephanie. She really needs to hire a competent stylist and a team of tailors.

I actually like this dress. The colour is lovely on her, the lace coat is pretty, as is the flowing skirt. With a few fit adjustments (nipping in the waist, fixing the wonky shoulder, and adding a few inches to the hem) this could be so much prettier. The bag and shoes are nice, and the hat is okay, although I think she could have done better.

Her makeup is stunning and her smile is her best accessory, as usual.

I said this on another thread; Stephanie's jacket/dress looks like something my grandmother would have worn to clean house in. The color, however is very becoming. The hat is just way over the top for my taste, but, again, I like the color and the way it coordinates with the other pieces. Her other accessories are lovely - and her hair and make up are wonderful. She looks very happy and radiant and still in love with her Prince, so that's what really matters.

I think its a dress and coat. The top of the jacket (and maybe the rest of it) is not lined and therefore flops. Ive seen pix with both sides doing that. It has lace, buttons, loops, gathers and semi-frilled sleeves. All in one outfit.

And IMO the colour doesn't work - she looks great in stronger colours.

I noticed that one side of the Stephanie's hem is a lot longer than the other. I was wondering if she missed a button on the coat/jacket when she buttoned it. Something is definitely amiss.

As for Tessy, she is what Princess Margaret used to call a "clothes hanger." Tessy has a trim figure, a well proportioned body and good legs. In other words, someone whose figure is such that clothes fit easily. (Princess Margaret said this about the Duchess of Kent.)

They seem to be enjoying themselves. For some reason I like Stephanie's hat - it's fun and the border around it goes with her colouring. Lace seems very popular currently and esp. for a wedding. The fit depends on which picture we're looking at. Perhaps changes in posture can account for some of this dysymetry. I wonder how different Stephanie might appear to us in person rather than in the still photos.

Lindy, it is possible that Stephanie did not button the jacket to the top and that therefore it slid. And Cepe, if a jacket tends to slide because it's unlined, then it must be pinned or attached in some way to the dress so it will not slide in either direction.

The jacket may have been just too big. (...)
but she looks radiant, and again I say the crazy hat is charming.

Sigh. One step forward and two steps back. This outfit is dreadful- frumpy and fussy and far too old for her.

She needs clean lines, good tailoring and she needs to stop wearing pastels- they wash her out. Her coloring is so fair that they don't flatter her at all.

She needs some good, strong colors.
