The silver gown looks like something princess marina of Kent or the queen mother would have worn in the 30's. To be able to wear a dress cut on the bias out of what looks like very thin fabric , it helps to be tall, very slim, or if you don't have that, strong undergarments and perfect posture. Stephanie' posture could be better.
Her hair always looks good up and styled, and the jewels are perfect.

It's actually powder pink, and it's by the same designer of the yellow Te Deum dress.

I love the Te Deum dress however for all this is a beautiful and flattering colour, I find it looks like something a child would wear. And, to be honest, I think it's that she has taken to having her hair hanging all around her face and shoulders so it spoils the cut and style.

As to the silver gown, I thought she looked magnificent and I love that she placed that tiara on real "tiara hair". It looked wonderful.

She did indeed look magnificent in that formal group portrait, wearing the silver gown.

Stephanie wears tiaras exceptionally well, imo.

Oh dear, this looks quite dreadful. It looks as though the belt is too big so it just sort of flops down and Stephanie shows that you don't need to be a swimmer for cutaway shoulders to be very unflattering. Her hair unfortunately is a mess as it is all over the place.

I hate to say it after such a fabulous weekend but, you wouldn't want to play a game of "Who Doesn't Fit in the Photo".

Sadly, you're right. The only thing I like about her look is the color of the dress.

She looks like a Flintstone.

I think she looks fine - the colour is lovely. I do, however, think that both she and Maria Teresa need to speak to the person who irons their clothes!

Well done! She looks lovely, so very well put together. Good fit, color, coordination, hair, makeup. A hit!

The back, including the hat looks like a bridesmaid dress I actually wore in the 1970s.

The National Day pictures of Stephanie look fantastic from the front. Her picture with the tiara'd family is just stunning. Very classy and classic.

Good for her! More hits than misses! Clapping!

From what I can see, Stephanie's yellow dress is nice. The colour is bright and cheerful - perfect for a summer day.
The silver gown she wore to the gala and in the official photo is just beautiful, and Stephanie looks very elegant. I love her makeup as well. I agree frelinghighness, the gown does look like the sort of gown a royal from the 1930s would wear; but I like that sort of style of gown so for me that's a positive point.

Stephanie's outfit she wore in Esch-sur-Alzette is great. I love the blue dress in particular.

I don't mind the green dress Stephanie wore, the colour is great but I think the fitting isn't flattering on her. The way the belt looks as if it's about to slip off is also a little awkward. But overall, she's worn some great outfits over the past few days!

The green dress is a mess wrinkled and the belt no tightened properly.

I love how in photos you can see that he really likes her. Loves her. It's the ultimate accessory. And it makes me happy that she makes him happy. Some days, it's the simple stuff that matters.

The green dress without the belt, and ironed, would have been fine. So many pictures of Stephanie with her mil and other family members in the past few days makes me confirm that she is short. Not as short as her mil but close. Many of her fashion mistakes come from not taking her height into account.fashion models are all tall for a reason, and many royal ladies are fashion model height.she needs to look to the successful shorter ladies and see what she can learn from them as far as what photographs well

I completely agree. The photos of Guillaume reacting to his wife losing her shoe tell the story. That has happened to more than one Royal lady. One in particular had a "prince" of a husband who just stared
blankly as if he couldn't have cared less.




Frelinghighness,

The only truly tall Royal women who consistently dress well are Kate and especially Charlene of Monaco. Tall Mette-Marit of Norway has been a fashion victim just as often as Stephanie and is proof that having fashion model height is no guarantee of sartorial success, imo.

having height is no guarantee you can wear anything as you gave a good example of that. You can only carry off more blunders, which would look even worse on a short woman.
You forgot queens max and mathilde as two more exceptionally tall royal women.

It's true that Max and Mathilde are tall, but it's not until they became queens that they started dressing really well, imo. Until very recently lovely Mathilde had a decidedly frumpy look and Max was hit/miss.

I am deliberately choosing to forget those unfortunate red shiny culottes Maxima wore recently.

I think of all the tall Royal women it's only the DoC and the Princess of Monaco who almost always get it right.

(I don't consider Letizia and Mary tall...they are average height females who look taller because they are slim and wear heels a lot)

Can we get back on topic and discuss Grand Duchess Stéphanie's fashion without comparing other royal ladies.
