When I first read posters discussing a RED and PINK dress I started reaching for the smelling salts...yikes...Valentine's Day is over, right?!

Then I clicked open the photos. OMG...how beautiful is that evening gown!! What on Earth has gotten into Stephanie lately...is Saturn in retrograde? Is Venus aligned with Mars? That girl has has come out with a vengeance this month. I haven't been so stunned since she appeared in that show stopper bridal gown.


She has now joined the ranks of Royal ladies to watch!

Let's get together and send him/her a fruit basket! If she knocks it out of the park on National Day next month I will officially declare her an emerging Royal Fashionista.

I vaguely remember when she first got engaged to Guillaume when they were standing in the garden at Berg she said something about being into "surprises"...then again last year when a reporter in Lutzembourg RTL asked her about having children she is alleged to have said she wants it to be a "surprise" when it happens.

So maybe she has been planning to spring this sudden transformation on folks all along.

I'll kick in 10 dollars towards that! LOL

Her wedding dress was simply gorgeous and she looked amazing in it. I think the white dress (was that Armani?) with the amazing earrings is closest I've seen her come in comparison.

This is the second time she has been caught not really knowing what to do with her clutch.

The dress is beautiful though. She looks perfect!

The Cour provided a bigger photo. No watermark.

I'm cautiously optimistic on style change. Paule Ka has worked well for Stephanie in the past so I don't necessarily believe she got a stylist. These few weeks had big/fancier events (Norway birthdays, Venice, Cannes, Octave, state visit) where anyone would glam up more.

Her clothing has never been this improved though...she's had hits now and then but mostly lots of disappointments. The past 3 weeks at least...she's been on point..daywear and evening are all hits.

Hereditary Grand Duchess Stephanie looked great, indeed. Red colour became her well. Grand Duchess Marie-Teresa's stole reminded me of the epitrachelion an Orthodox priest wears.

:

I couldn't think of what it reminded me of and you nailed it! That is indeed exactly what MT's stole looks like!

Underneath the ummm....epitrachelion...the Grand Duchess's gown appears to be lovely. Hair and makeup as well.

The red dress with the pink detail was wonderful on Stephanie. I'm not sure who is helping her shop/dress, but please keep it up. She hasn't looked this good since her wedding.

The dress doesn't seem to fit very well, and it makes her look dumpy.
Not a flattering look at all.

I like the dress but I agree that the fit is not right.

I'm taking the long view and remembering those days not long past when she wore a shawl everywhere. I loooove it when a royal lady's style evolves in a positive way.
She used to look like she was hiding in her clothes. She is decidedly moving away from that! Yay, her.

I agree. She is taking baby steps and she now has more HITS than MISSES for the first time since she became HGD. At least she takes chances with color and doesn't stick with the same dull things over and over. That rose is divine on Stephanie.

And yes, sayonara to the shawl!.

Rome was not built in a day.

The color is great! Not necessarily her style...but she's looking better overall lately.
