Gosh and she does have a stylist.... I am unable to believe how really horrible this outfit is it the shoes or the dress and the shoes together. I cannot see what conversation you would have with yourself about this dress before leaving home.

Sorry, but this is one of the ugliest outfits I have ever seen a royal lady wear.

Unfortunately I couldn't agree more, LadyFinn - this is ghastly.
A perfectly terrible design with those pinkish and black jet-embroidered patches on the shoulders.

epaulettes! that's exactly what it looks like, pink and black epaulettes gone bad. if they connected to something, maybe down the back and around the skirt or something, but just stuck up there for no rhyme or reason or worse no color
co-ordination, it's just tragically wrong...wrong...wrong...

i don't even think the dress and shoes would be that bad, boring maybe but not hidious with a pretty pin or necklace but those epaulettes OMG she's a beauty and still looks pretty but OMG is this a danish designers?

as someone that has seen some photos of myself and thought "what was i thinking" i'll give her a pass, it's early, and she's never came off as a clotheshorse, more simple chic but this dress needs to be thrown away and hopefully never makes the recycling thread.

Yes he is and that is why I cannot understand that he lets his wife look the way she does. That dress is so very, very, very UGLYYYYYYYYYYYY!!
My God, where do you buy stuff like that. She looks like a little girl in it.

I love the color of the dress on her, deep rich purple, but the rest... well that's obvious.

THAT DRESS! Where does she find this ugly stuff? Even without the pink things attacking her shoulders, the dress is matronly and cheap-looking. And her hair - let's style it a bit, shall we?
Marie looks like like a little girl in mummy's hand-me-down frock -

Was she going for a retro look?

Whatever look she was going for she missed it by a mile!! I think the skirt is too long, maybe, and that contributes to the matronly look. She is definately NOT a stylish princess yet by any means.

Well, points for wearing a dress; BUT lets leave it there shall we....
Small changes could have made this an average dress rather than what it is...

the more i look at the shoes the more i'm OMG frightful, i didn't see them closely before, i was mesmerized by the pink epaulettes. i haven't seen those since dynasty and michael jackson, maybe it's supposed to be 80's retro, it didn't work and since no fashionista has posted the designer, its not an excuse that it was a hip danish dress and we were the ones not getting it, general opinion seems to be it'll make the top ten worst dress of the year (that might be a fun poll) mabel and laurentrin might not make first this time

"Yes he is and that is why I cannot understand that he lets his wife look the way she does"
aww, sneeuwklokje, they're newlyweds, he's so in love he probably didn't even notice (if you can imagine) and using my husband as a guide, it takes awhile to read between the lines and plus he looks at all questions as a minefield, i can see his gears turning.....umumumumuuum...which is the right answer, which is the right answer, is this ultimately ending with "do i look fat/old" good hubbies know to never touch that live wire. early marriage he'd say "i like your blue top or whatever better" (he had sisters, he came well trained) now its "ARE You going to wear that" i know to check the mirror. my gay friends are my fashion stylists, they delight in saying "girl, you got to throw that away" and since they're all flawless, i always listen to them. a few catagories: elegant, classic, cute (as in "too cute" which is a big nono) churchy, oldladyish and tragic. alas, i fear this is tragic.

wish i could see the back. i'm on record not liking dark hose, so i won't beat that horse, but petite women have to be very careful and wear the right shoe or you look 3ft tall and stumpy, same for big pants with wide legs and of course everything should fit properly.
great color,....she looks pretty.... they look blissful... all's right in their world

Well without these strange something on her shoulders and with some nice additions (brooch or necklace) it could look quite nice. But maybe different colour maybe red she would look better...
Marie should do something with her hair cut them a little bit or change the colour?

Btw doesn't Mary wear similar colours as Marie or Marie like Mary?

Horrible! Sorry but Marie looks like straight from the 80ies, this dress is something Sue Ellen would have worn in "Dallas" 25 years ago. I reckon that there is a retro movement but this is the worst part of it.

I don't mind this outfit. It's fine. Could it be better? Yes, but I think she looks nice. I don't think she has a stylist. I'm not sure she will get one either.

Okay, I agree with everyone. This outfit is bad. It's the shoulders. The dress would have been fine without it.

Prepare the stones; I actually like how Marie looks. And I mean not only radiance and sweet smile, but also that dress. The dress iteslf is indeed hideous she kind of pulls it off quite smartly, imo.

OK, now you can throw the stones... :stuart:

It's a great thing that we all have differing opinions. So, no, no one will throw stones at you, and in fact I appreciate your input.
