"What on Earth is she wearing? Did her stylist die prior to her steaming the wrinkles out of her suit? Who ever designed the suit should have used a better fabric. I can see his/her vision, but the execution of the ensemble... tragic. Now, that isn't Marie's fault by the way. As for the hat... oh dear"
you crack me up glittering tiaras, thanks for my laugh outloud of the day


OMG that's what it is, i knew the grey outfit reminded me of something, the TIN MAN, thank you duke of marmalade for putting your finger on it!

i'm sorry (and i certainly don't mean to pick on Marie, just the outfit), she looked beautiful and radiant and very happy but the day outfit was awful. i didn't like the dinky hat, the cut of the suit, those sleeves (she must be using fred's old tailor, remember how his sleeves used to always be too long), the bulky shoulder pads, the wrinkles everywhere.....hopefully it won't show up again in the recycle thread

that said- IMO Marie was flawless at the gala.

Goodness!!!!!!!! The sleeves are too long the jacket ill fitting........How did she leave home like that? Hopefully she will look at those photos long enough to learn how to move around in the clothes and see how they fit.
Whoever sewed this thing should be fired......

It's the little things that add up and make Marie such a fashion disaster ---
the grooming, the right accessories, the correct undergarments.
The gray (?) suit --- the skirt should have been lined or at least Marie should have worn a slip underneath so that the skirt didn't cling so much - a size larger in the skirt would have helped also - it just looked too tight and clingy.
The jacket was a mess and all buttoned up like that, looked uncomfortable and bulky. It looked like a straitjacket and hot. And the hat --- I guess that Marie thinks that just any hat will do.
Marie does not understand day time dressing. She only worked in lower level office jobs where she was not expected to dress in an appropriate business like manner. She is starting from scratch.
As for the gala gown --- it is very cheap looking --- in fact, all of Marie's clothing looks cheap and tacky --- as if she is shopping at very low-end stores.
All in all, these events which Marie has been attending have been planned for months and she has known for months that she was going to attend them (if she wasn't going to go AWOL at the last minute). She should have preplanned all of the outfits carefully - down to the tiniest detail. After all, it's not as if her Danish lessons were occupying all of her time.

IMHO Marie's ensemble did not go together. The outfit while is pretty did not go with the hat. Wish she could have worn a different one that is not so boxy

As for the very first so official event fot Marie her outfit wasn't the best choice. It's pretty outfit but for the older lady. Sleeves too long, material hmm... nice but too heavy as for her, I think. Shoes could be little higher.
We should take her some time to find her new royal style.

Mary comparing with Marie much elegant. And she has so nice hat.

It looks that they have quite good relationships on these photos.

What I can say about her light blue outfit... maybe that what I've say on the other board - pretty but for the older lady. Sleeves too long, material to heavy, shoes could be higher.

I've hope to see her on the next event in better outfit. She need some time to find her new royal style.

I have to agree here pamk, Marie doesn't even look a bit classy and I fear that this won't change because a) it perfectly suits Joachim who usually looks terribly old fashioned combined with poor grooming or b) she has already given up as she doesn't want to be drawn into this "who looks better Marie or Mary" competition.

Too bad because Marie does have potential ... hopefully she only needs more time to realize. Rome wasn't build in day.

No problem, and I'm glad to put a smile on someone's face today... it was beginning to become too serious in this topic. So I thought I would lighten the mood.

Back on topic, the gala gown she wore to the Bella Centre was lovely on her. Deep jewel tones suit her perfectly.

I think we all need to give her a little time. I seem to remember comments about Mary not as elegant as Alexandra, can't compare with Alexandra. Everybody makes fashion mistakes.

I hope with time passing by she will develop some basic fashion sense. Unfortunately it's inevitable that Marie is being compared to her sister-in-law who has raised the bar quite high in terms of appearance.
I agree, Marie must be aware that she will be inevitably compared to Mary and hopefully she will lift her game. Her gala dress is nice and appropriate, but not a knockout or as fashion forward as Mary.

The gala gown looked absolutely smashing on her.
If we can think about it. She must have had to choose a lot of clothes for her new life and it is possible that she will have some bumps along the way.
As long as she promises to burn the silver suit and the hat that went with it I will forget the whole thing ever happenned.

Right now, your link shows the grid. When you click on a picture, it looks like this:
royal news
On the right, just above the gallery of photos, there is a button 'Download'. Click on this button and a window opens up where you want the file to be saved. The default filename for all the photos is web.jpg so just give it a new name. There is one event that doesn't have the 'Download' button - Soren probably forgot to put it. Without this 'Download' button, you won't be able to save any of the photos and all you get is a blank file if you right-click and 'save as'. Good Luck!

I cannot belive!!!Look at that hat so masculine yes Queen Amina you are right masculine is the correct word!!! It is horrible it doesn't suit the outfit it doesn't suit her at all , it's too big and very inapropriate for this ocassion!!! Marie is not a women hat, and this one is really really horrible!!!! The suit is also awful and very old fashion!!

Marie's day time outfit was not that bad, as was said previously the colour works but it would have helped a lot if the fabric was different and if the suit was tailored. Hopefully she'll learn from this though it seems to me like she picked the suit at the very last minute and thus didn't realise that it would wrinkle that badly. As for the hat I really liked it, it was something different from the run of the mill royal hats. It was masculine and could have gone over well with the right kind of bag and better shoes.

Marie's gala gown otoh was inspired, it was the right style, the right fabric and the right colour overall this outfit really did it for me. I hope she can transfer the imagination and input she puts into her evening wear to her day wear as it would go a long way fashionwise.

The purple evening gown was a lovely choice & perfect color. The dress wasnt anything new nor was the style, ive seen it in almost every other magazine but it did suit her well.

You are right about the suit. Pretty awful. The shoes were wonderful! Not a total loss. Remind me of a pair Mary has.

I still think that the purple gala gown had an almost negligee or nightgown look to it with all of that flowing fabric --- creeped me out.
Just not right for a royal event --- even the medal pinned to the bodice looked badly positioned.
The narrow fringed woolen scarf used as a stole --- did she grab that from her winter coat? Get a proper pashmina in a lighter color --- they are sold everywhere. Ask Mary - she uses pashminas.
The overall effect was so dark --- dark hair, deep tan, purple gown, black accessories in summer? Better luck next time.

Hasn't Princess Caroline worn something very very similar?
