My opinion about Princess Claire's outfit is ambiguous. The jacket and skirt are perfectly/professionally tailored. On the other hand, colour-blocks and really, really wide collar paired with an explosion of an cobweb veil look somewhat awkward. It is not what I would call "couture-restrained and refined".

Her outfit looks ok , nice colour , nice bag but I don't think that this hat is a good choice.

I like this outfit. It looks nice on Claire, but the veil on the hat is not attractive. I think that it is a bit distracting.

The designer told in the newspaper that the design is based on a Mondriaan picture! The Belgian colours with blue as an extra!

Princess Claire as of late, has started to dress abit different, but not yet bizzare. It seems to me that the wives of the second in line princes allow themselves some sort of eccentric dressing, Laurientine, Claire, Fergie (many years back) Martha louise is the second in line, and our very new Princess Marie. It's not a fact, just an interesting observation.

She looks so much better without that "bridal" concoction she put on her head during the defilee.

With hindsight, I have to say that the bubble skirt and headpiece "killed" this outfit for me. The outfit was too busy. If she wore a simple straight skirt and headpiece, it would have accentuated the Mondriaan-picture-themed jacket.

That's a really interesting jacket, it reminds me of windows designed by Frank Lloyd Wright (here's a picture of one owned by the Museum of Modern Art in New York).

I'm not loving the bubble skirt, it doesn't seem to be doing much for her. I think the outfit could look more polished with a crisp tailored white skirt (maybe a pencil skirt?). The hat is ok in idea, but if the tulle was a little shorter, maybe half as long, would probably look better. I like that she is taking chances with her fashion though.

The outfit is really basic, but it looks nice on her. I really like the bag.

I agree that's nice dress but Ithink that not for her. Maybe if it would be longer and in other colour (maybe red) it would look better... Her legs on some photos doesn't look good in this dress.

The blue-white dress with an abstract pattern looked all right on Princess Claire. I wish the dress were a bit longer to cover her knees.

I love the red dress that she wore to the musical premiere! The neckline is so interesting and elegant.

I am impressed with Princess Claire's red outfit: an amazing hue of the red colour and creatively interpreted neckline. I wish we could see the whole look. However, I am not keen on her hair style though. It looked somewhat unkempt.

I like her hat and coat, but when you see what the others wore to this event, she seems to be too casual.
