The first outfit was okay, imo. The dress seems to be nice. I like the colour and print. Anyway, I think it was a little missmatched with the white jacket. The cross-necklace looked tacky. A smaller necklace would have been nicer.

I liked her black dress with matching jacket. The look was quite pretty.

The evening gown is really ugly, imo.
Pictures of the dress without watermarks:
The top looks quite oldfashioned and the skirt has a weird length.
Apart from that: She looked quite overdressed. Most of the other Ladies wore short dresses or suits.

Have a look at TRF Rules and FAQ

Every outfit was great until she wore that gown...I wonder what was she thinking?!

I'm not impressed by anything from this Mexico trip wardrobe.
The green & white print dress might have been nice enough, but the combination with the jacket did not really work.
The white office job blouse was dull, the proportions of the black cocktail dress with its awkward sequined midriff and bolero were all wrong, and the evening look is a real mess:
Skirt either too long or too short, old-fashioned sandals, wrap too thick, top too wide and too muddled and apparently sporting one perfectly idiotic, thin shoulder strap, which somehow slipped or broke or whatever - anyway it seems to have disappeared at one point:

Thumbs down overall.

I have to agree Boris, of the three looks I've seen, I can live with the black cocktail dress, but just barely, the neckline is too low and it's too short. The evening gown is a total disaster. The whole thing looks like it was thrown together at the last minute, makes Marie look frumpy and makes her appear heavier than she really is. A total mess.

a more basic style certainly suits marie, white shirts with a nice accessory, etc.

i wasn't a big fan of marie's long dress. it looks like the length isn't right and the corset doesn't have the right proportions in comparison to the whole length. i am normally a fan of flowers if used corrctly but i agree this time they make marie look a lot older.

Not that bad, IMO. The fabric of the dress indeed looks a bit cheap, but I like the pattern and colour.

The black outfit was great, she looked elegant. The floral pink evening gown is really ugly, hands down. Unflattering, ill-fitting and far too old fashioned for lovely Marie.

Marie has not looked good IMO on this visit, nothing looks right. ..and please when your husband is in a suit and tie next to you on a visit, Princesses please take off the sunglasses!! I mean are you kidding, hold them in your lap, do not shove them up on your head like your at Disney!! I know I'm being harsh but Marie has such wonderful examples with Mary and HM, she really needs to spiff it up a bit!!

As usual, Marie's outfits look not well thought of before the trip, some stuff thrown together and somehow it must do. I find Marie pretty lazy regarding her fashion choices, no need to become a fashion icon but I am missing some attention to detail that is essential to a person who represents a country.

apart from the gala dress, her outfits are not so awful...and she doesn't look skanky or anything.

I really liked the black dress and jacket. I thought it was pretty and stylish. The evening gown didn't look nice to me. I think the style of the top made her hips look really big, which they aren't. I actually thought the white jacket and green/blue patterned skirt looked fresh and very nice for an early spring. I didn't care for the big cross necklace though, maybe a smaller cross would have been better.
