I don't like the colour but the dress is a classic so it's ok.

Great color but quite a boring dress, there is nothing to it nor nothing in the cut.

I like the color of the dress, though the cut is a bit dull indeed. Not that bad.

I'm undecided about this dress. At least it's simple and quite elegant. The colour is ok.

They went with her to her last fitting appointment. They don't reveal in what color it will be.

Like the previous years Laurent and Claire want to put a Belgian fashion designer in the spotlight. This year it's 28 year old Bernard Depoorter

She looks really great in this 50's/Grace Kelly style dress IMO.
The Flemish TV show Royalty went to visit the designer and he showed the fabric that the dess is going to be made of. It's a 'maron glacé' color, sort of light brownish grey.

Black and white, always the classic option.
Claire looks very happy.

Except the shoes the rest of the outfit looks ok. The make up maybe it's too dark for her.

The trousers look perfect on her - every woman must have a pair of these in her closet. I'm not too keen on this particular blouse. It looks odd and thus not so pretty. JMO

The black and white outfit looks elegant and alright. The top looks like NATAN to me, but I could be mistaken. Does anybody know the designer?

Her outfit for National Day hasn't been posted yet, but I thought we could look back at her previous outfits.

Claire's dress is beautiful, but imo not for a parade. She looks overdressed compared to the other ladies.

She's a beautiful woman, but some of her past National outfits are a little out there. Not in the Mabel kind of way but enough to make you go WHAT?! Which is weird because she always seems so appropriately dressed.

I think the dress is beautiful on her and when you put her beside Queen Paola and Princess Mathilde, it fits right in. Don't just compare her to Princess Astrid, who is in uniform!

I really admire how Princess Claire has made this annual event (where she is required to attend, and to dress up!) into an occasion to showcase the work of an up and coming Belgian fashion designer. Who knows- she might not like some of the outfits herself, but continues to wear and promote Belgian fashion.

The neckline on this dress is particularly beautiful on her.

The dress is beautiful, but too much for the parade. I love the fascinator in her hair.
