I think she looked a mess (as usual). Sack this Knudsen guy on the spot!!
Why on earth does a 1.60 m petite woman wear a white jacket, a brown tweed skirt in totally the wrong shape, black stockings (she really has a thing for that somehow), black shoes and a beige/gold straw hat. If you are so tiny, wear everything in the same colour, it will put inches of length on you!! When you look at the items of her outfit separately they are quite nice, but together, a big no no. I appreciate the fact that she is not the ueber fashionista that her sister in law is, but that doesn't mean that she has to be the total opposite. Really, when looking at Mary and Marie, I'm getting memories of Diana and Fergie all over again.

The hat isnt her best choice but isnt bad at all. The jacket is very pretty and elegent, fits well. The skirt is lovely, matches the jacket nicely IMO. I liked this look very much on Marie though I think the skirt was abit too short. I dont like the dark stockings.

Too simple, the skirt way too short...the all outfit will be Ok to take your kids to school and go to work, not for a event like this, way to simple, she needs to find her way into fashion... Malene Birger has wonderful clothes but she needs to choose them very well according to her body!

I dont agree with you, these is abit too formal to wear to work IMO. She has a petite figure, so choosing isnt too easy. I think she should get a stylist (if ntot already has one) to help her out on the first few months.

She appaers to have a stylist: Dennis Knudsen. She should sack that guy on the spot if you ask me.

Maybe they're still working out what works for her (body/fashion/comfort-security wise) and soon they'll make a great team...? (I'm trying to be positive here)

I am in the same cheering section as you, Marmi. I like Marie, and I would love to see her working out her fashion faux-pas. I am a petite person too, and it has taken several years of fashion missteps to figure out what works and what doesn't (and I don't have access to the best designers and stylists in the world like Marie). I am still rooting for her.

I am hopeful, but dont think that I am not afraid to be critical, sgl

I'm not afraid to be critical either (that horrible purple dress at the science event, and the outfit from the opening of parliament spring to mind), but she seems so sweet. Since she is new at this job, I am trying to cut her some slack. She is making it very difficult though

Well I'm glad we're in agreement then (again! )

I really hope she will discoer wider brim hats too. The hats I've seen her in, kind of look too small for her.

I really like the white jacket and the brown skirt and dark stockings, but the hat kind of destroy the outfit a bit.

I'm crossing fingers, and hope she will find and feel more comfortable with wider hats in the future. It takes time to get used to hats. And it also put a presure on her, knowing she will be taken pics of, and of course she want to look good. But she also need to feel good. Maybe she doesn't feel good with big hats yet? I hope she'll wear them in the future!

When it comes to her purple/bluish lilac gala gown, I think it look good on her. It is not bad at all. The colos goes well to her complexion.

I think that big hats are going to overpower her - she evidently is quite short.
The straw hat for the Parliament opening is a big no-no --- you don't wear stra in the fall.
There are plenty of fashion lines which offer a second line for petite women.

Somehow I could see Marie going crazy with widebrimmed hats...

I don't know why though. But she seems to be wearing the same type of hat, so hopefully she will make a refreshing change.

I really hope she'll soon discover bigger hats. As her face structure is similar to Mary's I guess big hats would look great on her.

Close up

Full lenghth
If the hat the skirt and the hose was in the same colour the whole ensemble would be smashing. From what I saw, because of the light it seems like these three pieces were in different colours. Still somehow, for me at least, she shines and looks beautiful.

Just view post nr. 99 by Ricarda. Billed Bladet stated that her stylist is a certain Dennis Knudsen.

I don't think bigger hats will overpower her. I mean...what is big? She could never pull off "Maxima-big", but bigger hats than I've seen her in, would be nice. It doesn't have to be that big, just a diferent shape than the upside-down-flowerpot hats I've seen her in.

I think she will wear different hats and types of hats in time. She is just married to prince Joachim. she will wear other hats in the future, and i hope to not see that potty hat style too often.

I've seenMarie in hats, and so fat I've not liked any of them. It is something...they doesn't go well to her facial shape I think.

Her figure is very small and pettite she needs to get her fashion style quickly otherwise she will keep having negative points of the press!!! However if that doesn't bother her so let her keep this way...
