Disappointing choice for Madeleine today. I assume it's a couture piece from the designer who could've done a better job. The shiny fabric is too shiny and its very stiff. The detailing on the side don't suit her and I agree with members, she looks uncomfortable. She looks like she can't move her arms to me.

I loved the color on her but thats about it. The headpiece looked bit silly. Would've been more appropriate on Estella in a few years.

Bad headpiece and dress design; the satin is too shiny and stiff. But it's a lovely color on her.

Great colour, good style, love the neckline, ignore the shine.

She didn't select it with photographs in mind, maybe she should have done but she didn't. When looked at without flash I think it's probably stunning. Friend of mine chose pale pink silk (with sheen) for her going away outfit at her wedding. She looked great, the pix were awful cos it just reflected all the light back.

She looks v happy but she should tell her mother and sister in law to ditch the flower pots.

I don't like the shiny material for the church service, the colour is lovely. This kind of dress isn't Madeleine's style at all and she looks uncomfortable in it. And I wish she had had her hair up.
I quite like this dress. I think it would have looked better without the pleats. The colour is lovely on Madeleine and the neckline suits her. I think the dress isn't that shiny in life, it's probably just the flash photography making it to appear so shiny.
I like the hairdo, make-up and the little bow on a side.

All in all I think Madeleine looked nice on her day.

Unfortunately, this dress isn't very flattering IMO. I also believe that the shininess comes from the flash of the camera. The top portion looks ill-fitting and I don't understand the flaps at her hips. On the bright side, the color is pretty.

The flaps are the peplum that is on the back of the dress.

Really is not the dress for her. I don't even like the color on her. It would be a wonderful dress for someone who is terribly underweight, with a boyish figure to create some curves. She already has a great figure, and this overemphasizes it.
I keep staring at her bustline...not a great design.

I actually think it looks quite nice and balances the long hair over one sholder look.

Here it is, it looks odd, would suit well to a 15-year old girl.

I agree. The cut and fabric is all wrong. (not a shiny fabric person). And the color is not good. And the hair accessory is just awful.

Not a flattering choice. I agree with most posters, the dress is not for Madeleine and the headpiece - OMG!

Out of all the designer dresses she could have worn, she chose a very unflattering "gangrene" color dress. What was she thinking!

I'm in the minority but I love the dress. I'm sure without the flashes the fabric was fine.

And the headpiece was different, but not ugly.
