How pretty Stephanie looks, and how happy! I can't think of a better match for Guillaume, they are so sweet together.

No, I don't consider it an insult. I just don't think that many of the styles that people call matronly, are actually matronly. Like I said earlier, some of the outfits that are labeled that, are things that I see people my age and younger wearing.

I don't see anything wrong with the word either. I just think it's used way too often and I get confused when I see it used on an outfit that I would never consider matronly. But your point about people having different meanings for it, would explain why it's used so often.

My only point in saying I would like to see her in a style similar to Kate's Emila Wickstead is that I think the silhouette would be far more flattering than most of what Stephanie wears and the tailoring would certainly be better.
I agree that the wide pants and jackets just don't flatter her. She needs to continue wearing things (like the last two dresses) that are tailored/fit better.

The green dress and cute matching bag and shoes, not to mention the earrings and necklace is really an elegant yet fun look.

Oops, I forgot the great hair;

Stephanie looks lovely in green, and Guillame's arm around her shoulder is adorable and sweet. I also love the matching bag & shoes, and her jewelry. I hate when necklaces get caught around the bust; it has happened to me many times, but at least I did not have an army of photographers to record it.

Oh wow...Stephanie is on a roll! I agree Furstin Taxis she should visit Mr. Lauren's atelier more often. And look at those enormous ruby and diamond earrings!!!

Could it be? Has the HGD finally located her inner fashionista?!

She looks just beautiful! The dress fits her perfectly. Lovely.

As always, her hair, make up and jewelry are perfect.

She looks incredible. I'm tempted to call it her best look ever. The dress is great on her, this clean lines style suits her and so does white colour. I'm drooling about the earrings and hair.

Every other month someone says "that's the best she has looked since her wedding!" but I agree with you DanyT...this Cannes Film Festival appearance is one of Stephanie's personal bests.

She looks especially stunning compared to some of the overdressed vulgar starlets and models on the walkway.

And I am speechless over those earrings and that jeweled clutch. Are they from the Grand Ducal collection, I wonder?

Fantastic dress! Not the most exciting for Cannes, but one I don't doubt she'll enjoy wearing on many more occassions. It's a classic. Those earrings though. Major love for them!

I don't remember ever seeing those earrings on any of the Grand Ducal women. If they are from Stephanie's personal collection I will die. That is what you call big time bling. It was very smart of whomever advised her to keep her gown as simple as possible because those kind of accessories can't take much competition!

This is just about perfect! Style, color, accessories! She better be on the fashion poll for the group next week!!!!

There is a close up at Luxarazzi but the article just says that they are "new".

She's going to give Kate a run for her money if she continues as is.

Every since the birthday party ..she has just killed it. The green dress yesterday (although the earrings were a miss for me) was great for her. I don't think she's worn anything I don't like for the past week. It's a new record. I'm really excited..I hope she's turned over a new leaf...her wedding gown was so perfect...she's finally appearing to get back into line with that level of clothing.

I am normally not a fan of white ...this Cannes dress is gorgeous on her. She doesn't even look plump anymore.

Calvin Klein(along with Giorgio Armani) is known for clean, classic no fuss lines. He can hide/minimize any figure flaws. I would love it if the HGD started working with him more often.

She (or more to the point her husband) can certainly afford it.
