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.
Methinks you are being too harsh. She looked lovely!

Wow! I'm surprised to see Marie's outfits provoking so much of a reaction!
With the exception of the grey suit, which was not only unattractive but all wrong for the event itself, I think she's looked very nice.

The black and white oufit in Berlin(?) was simple and classic, as was the lovely blue coloured dress. She has the perfect figure for such girlish styles, having very slim shoulders and toned arms.

Both of the purple evening dresses were lovely, the first with the ruffled skirt was particularly nice. The longer dress was pretty, even if the style has been seen before. Plus she won marks in my book for having the good sense to bring a shawl.

The grey suit with the rather masculine hat wasn't one of those moments I see pics of a royal person and go "wow". But the purple gown was nice. I think Marie will get there. She just need some time.

Just look at Mary. She has always looked great, but she turn out better and better I think.

http://royals.web-log.nl/photos/unca...mary_marie.jpg i think this outfit was a mistake for Marie
It doesnt seem to fit her right abit too big in all places especially the sleeves
Not keen on the shiny material as it looks cheap and very creased
Its abit too covered up the long sleeves and the high neck - was it a cold day???
it must be hard for Marie especially when Mary turned up in the most lovely outfit ever

Marie will find her royal style with time. Marie may be one of those lucky people who dont really compare themselves with their peers.
At the moment, it looks like Marie may be quite classic, which Mary is, but she is also quite fashion foreward too (if that makes any sense). So hopefully they'll end up with two complementary but differing styles, especially for events such as these where they have to sit side by side.

You can't even compare the two...this is a thread pertaining to Princess Marie's style, not a comparison to Princess Mary's style...which frankly has been getting a bit boring of late, too safe, too polished, too stiff and dare I say it, verging on the Stepford Wives...

I thought Marie's grey/silver suit was fine...the hat was unusual, which is a good thing...I think she is trying her best and I do recall Mary wearing something similar once (yes, I am aware of the hypocrisy)...All her other choices have been satisfactory, but come on, she has been married and a princess, for what, two minutes...give her a break and wait and see...I like what I have seen so far and maybe with Marie it is more like, "What you see is what you get", whereas with Mary her motto could well be, "I'll give you what you want to see"

The material is very strange and stiff-looking. I really don't like the shape of the hat. This outfit is just wrong for her.

Xeara, I totally agree with you, when I said that Marie's Trillby was masculine I thought it was a good thing. It was just so different from most hats that royal women wear that one has to give her credit for that fashion risk which really worked for her, the only problem was the fabric of her suit. Had the fabric been softer and her heels sky high with that hat she would have made one hell of a sexy princess.

From what I can see there's nothing controversial about any of the outfits she has worn.

I think the hat would have looked fine on her, if she had gone for the Katharine Hepburn-style with trousers for the suit making the proportions seem longer. As it is, it looks a bit odd with the rest of the suit. (not to mention the colour).

Thank you dazzling, beautiful relaxed picture. Marie looks beautiful.
Perhaps she has it right with her clothes. She is not a movie star and she does not need to dress like one. If she accepts her role as a gentleman farmer's wife she should dress as one. I like her more and more.

I would define Princess Marie's casual outfit as very American. Well, I might be wrong. Jeans and an embellished tunic top could be a new definition of the French chic. Overall, the outfit looked nice on Princess Marie.

I think this outfit looks great on her. The jeans are a good cut for her (she looks like she would be a petite person), and the top is casual, yet chic. When Marie dresses casually, she looks great. Now, if only I could say that about her more formal outfits (i.e.-her suits and some of the dresses that she has worn).

That blue dress is Marie's best work to date and as for the shoes, I think you are onto something, LadyS...and here I was thinking they were some clunky comfy looking HomyPeds or something and they are Prada no less...I think that is the style now...chunky heel and rounded toe making all Mary's spike heeled, pointy toe shoes look so old school Go Marie!!!

I keep watching for someone to show up on those C Louboutin/Carrie and Sex and the City monstrosities one of these days. Thank God neither one of them is going anywhere near them.
