Princess Marie's Fashion and Style Part 1: June 2007 - September 2008

I thought it would be nice to have a thread to discuss the Fashion and Style of Prince Joachim's girlfriend Marie Cavallier.
There are many different opinions about her Fashion taste.

well, i guess she has a fun style, she does know when to dress casual and when not to.she doesnt seem to over do it, she doesnt go for anything flashy etc...

I thought this was great look formarie, its a cute jacket but im not too sure of the black stockings, its distracting the classic look of the coat in some way i think - picture (DRW)

ohh! btw, i think this was her first public outing with the CP couple & i think she did great, outfit wise.

Marie has all assets to become a stylish princess although I felt her last outing was kind of a blunder. She is very pretty or even a beauty, good figure, expressive eyes - all she needs now is taste. There are some people out there who could have it all but never get it right - I hope Marie is not one of them. Her relationship with Joachim shows that she's able to learn and adapt to what she has to. So with time passing she might not only have found a better way to deal with the press but also have learned how to dress properly

Black, white & colorful things. I think she should not wear a full brown outfit or purple. she should break it down. Prints would also suit her

how about a colorful print wrap dress with 3 quarter length sleeves. im thinking green & black shapes on white material. gold knot earrings and a thin gold braclet. stockings to match her skin color with plan pair of black sling pumps and black clutch hand bag.

Don't get me wrong, I like Marie, but she needs a brilliant stylist to polish her natural beauty and energetic grace.

First thing she should do: Cut, dye, add either subtle highlights or lowlights, and find a better style than that college girl bone straight, heavy bang look. She's in her early thirties not her early twenties, it's time to update her style.

Essentially, her hair looks incredibly healthy, but she needs to do something different. It's so blah looking.

Second, hire a stylist. I see her wearing Comme des Garçons, Jil Sander, definitely Dries van Noten and Chloe, Oscar de la Renta for evening and perhaps formal days, Sonia Rykiel, and definitely something from Gianfranco Ferre's last collection (may he RIP.)

Third, burn every single panty hose, colored and nude, she owns. A bare leg is so chic.

If she has discoloration or scars one can easily pick up a lightly tinted lotion from Sephora (or the Danish version of the store), and apply it hours prior to an engagement or the evening before.

Fourth, urge her to stay away from her jeans for the next year unless she is gardening or something.

Fifth, no more peasent tops.

Sixth, make-up. She's a natural beauty who should stay away from heavy eyeshadow, mascara, and blush. Her skin is amazing so she doesn't need pancake make-up for events.

That's all that I can think of at the moment, but later I might have something else to say.

Yes. However, no absolutely no dark browns or jeweled purples. And for heaven's sake no more of those tired wrap dresses.

She already has a very slim and well proportioned body (I'm guessing she's at least 5'6" and a 33-22-341/2. A perfect body for couture collections. Which, by the way begins on July 8 in Paris.)

You can't be serious Panty hoses are the saving grace for Nordic women - even in summer it can be really chilly at times. Bare legs are OK for a lot of places but they cannot be disregarded in the Nordic climate.
Personally, I find panty hose clad legs a lot more attractive than freezing bluish bare legs

I dont agree in the lack of pantyhose, she should wear it in the same color of her skin, I think it is correct/protocolary to wear them for this (at least my ranny said it was in the etiquete books)

IMO Marie has it difficult, she has the same "type" than Mary and comparisons will be inevitable (lets start with the name!), and we all know what a wonderful job Mary is doing at the looking regal business. She will have to develop her own style in a way she wouldnt look like a copy of Mary.

So far I think she is doing well, she is still a private person after all, not a princess with official duties, (I dont see anything wrong if she wears jeans in the airport or in the weekend while she is with Joachim or in her every day). I cant wait to see an improvement cause to me it looks she wants to try and do her best effort.

I'm completely serious.

Panty hose is so granny especially nude sheer or black sheer.

I understand if a women decides to wear very dark tights with a chic coat, especially in the cold Nordic winter, but sheer hose? Come on...

So are we following fashion or etiquette here? Which one? For me, I'm on fashions side and agree with Andre Leon Tally in his latest rant about panty hose.

Let's at least try to stay away from the Mary and Marie comparison, especially since this topic was created to discuss Marie Cavallier only.

It's funny- this aversion against panty hoses. I'm serious when I say that it's either panty hoses - or not wearing skirts or dresses at all through most of the year in Scandinavia. So no - it's definitely not granny.
Freezing bare legs are just so unsexy!

Then women should wear leg warmers, anything but sheer nude panty hose.

And by the way, I cannot imagine sheer hose would keep a woman's legs warm during cold winters. Is there some sort of new type of panty hose that keep their legs warm?

We all see your point, but please think that maybe where you live it works and women dress like that (I see you live in Miami and LA prolly at 35ºC you cant Stand wearin ´em), but there are different traditions in different places, for instance I dont live in a cold place, but dress codes in many companies here motivate the use of those for their executives....( I personally like them cause my skin is too white and they look terrible! and I never have time to tan).

I cant find a protocol link yet but I will, I am almost sure the use of pantyhoses is protocolary or at least etiquette

I've actually lived all of the world including Munich (two months), NYC, and Vienna (lived there during a very cold January) so I do understand what it is like regarding dress in different places. Furthermore, and most importantly I do respect each countries traditions. Don't assume I don't.

If ones legs are pale, try using a lightly tinted lotion, not tanning lotion, but a tint from Neiman's, Barney's or Sephora.



BACK ON TOPIC ABOUT MARIE CAVALLIER'S FASHION AND STYLE.

I think a lady should where pantyhose when appropriate. Such as to a church christening or work (if required by one's office) But not black sheer with a light colored outfit.

Also, I agree Marie needs to update her hairstyle. I'm sure it's only a matter of time before she starts getting subtle changes to her style like a hair cut that start the transformation process. I think the tone of her hair is fine, but she needs her ends trimmed or something. It looks shaggy. She should also experiment with chignons and buns at more formal events. Marie has great potential though!

I don't think they're granny either. I think they are a nuisance since they tend to rip easily so I sometimes don't bother. But I do think they look ladylike. Starting soon at work, you can't wear skirts/dresses without hose, so they are going to be a necessity for me!

Personally, I think nude stockings are elegant. They (stockings) are refined and make a woman look refined. With that said, I won't say anything else about stockings.... What other outfits are out there? The pink coat-dress she wore, is it a dress that's supposed to look like a coat or is it a coat that just looks like a dress??? Was she wearing a dress underneath it? I know it's a silly question, but please humor me

I haven't been wowed by her style, but I did like the leopard shoes she wore at Joa's car race.

It looks Chanel-ish to me. I don't know if it's a coat or a dress, but it looks good.
