I like the dress but the shoes looks odd. Other than that Marie looks great! She looks great in warm, neutral colors.

The colors of the dress are really pretty & work on Marie quite well but I don't like the embellishments on the top part of the dress.

The dress looks as if was made of gold , vry pretty indeed! The hues are lovely, shoes excellent, the shawl is just cute!
It's nice to see that nothing but joy emanates from her.

I love the dress on Marie and am glad that she tried something different! I agree, all these champagne and chocolate shades suit her complexion a lot. Thumbs up!

Totally agree! She has looked wonderful and expressed her own style.

I think the 3 outfits on Marie I have seen during this HK visit (weird Joachim went to HK, since his ex-wife is from there?) are great and probably apt to the events she attended...

A travel wardrobe has to be assembled taking into account weather, event suitability, etc...Those comments about her black pantsuit when a cocktail dress might have been better, well maybe the event was a business-sponsored one and she wanted to look the part, serious and professional...Whereas the cute dress she wore was maybe for a more fun, relaxed event, like a sporting club perhaps...So if that is the case, both outfits suited the occassion...as did her black jersey dress for a balmy HK day...

It's worth noting that Marie probably has a fifth of the wardrobe money that Mary has at her disposal, and isn't on the "freebies list", unlike the Crown Princesses, who are constantly sent "samples". That makes Marie's clothing successes even more laudable IMO ...

You forget, that unlike Mary and Fred, Joachim has another income, not just his apanage. So stating that Maries clothing budget is a fifth of Marys is most propably false

For formal receptions i prefer dresses with short sleeves. I like the look when she wears the shawl with it.

The dress does look lovely with the shawl.
I am not keen on the shoes, and the red toenails stand out like sore thumbs, a colour in tone with the dress would have looked much nicer.

Hola! That's probably one of Marie's most interesting dresses so far. I'm glad that she goes for a bit glitter etc. I don't mind the toes nails, but I have a little problem with the shoes as they look a bit odd. Closed nude or bronze shoes would have been much better, IMHO.

Well said, Dierna23! I only disagree about the allegedly odd looking open shoes because I love the fact how they echo the bow of the dress' neckline in a mirror inverted way. Apart from that, their colour-combination is rather felicitous, i.m.o..

I love the dress, but I do think it's glitzy.
