The colour is nice, but imo the dress (especially the ruffles) looks quite tacky. I don't like it at all.

I love Marie but the dress is a mess. The colour, while nice in small doses, so to speak, is just too loud.
As for the style, I hate ruffles so this was never going to be my favourite.

One could almost get the thought that Marie had let QMII choose her dress
I'm definitely not a fan, the pink is too pink which wouldn't have been as big a problem if the dress hadn't been as big as it is. The ruffles? Well ... This kinda disappointed me, Marie always has such a lovely sense of fashion.

I actually love the color on Marie, but she looks like she needs to be ironed. The dress itself looks poorly made, and the ruffles on the back seem to me to be an afterthought by the designer. Her hair, make up and jewels are fabulous though. We'll hope for better from Marie & Mary next time around.

I like the color but it over powers such a tiny woman and the bottom ruffle doesn't help. It also looks wrinkled and ill-fitting.

Ill-fitting? Could it possibly be by Natan? His clothes are almost always "ill-fitting".

Is it Natan? If so, that explains alot of what's wrong. He's totally the wrong designer for a petite lady like Marie.

The color is nice, but in a more muted version, and a different (less shiny) fabric. The dress itself however, is a disaster. The ruffles are an overkill.

Seems like Marie didn't know whether she wanted a plain dress (the front) or a ruffled dress (the back). Such style doesn't suit her at all. Id wish she would invest in about 2 dresses that flatter her figure and she would actually recycle them then buying a new dress for almost every event.

ok, so it seems, I am the only one, who likes the dress, I like hers much more than Marys.... the fuchsia colour is a WOW effect and she can wear it.

I don't think it is a gown for this occasion I like the colour on her for a change though, but the train and the fru-fru I just don't know ...

Looks as if she borrowed the dress from her mother-in-law....

As long as she doesn't borrow that poppy tiara from the Queen all is well

I actually quite like the dress. The colour is great on her. The ruffles look silly from the front but ok from the back I think.

I thought exactly the same thing!!!

Not a fan of this at all; where it possibly could be passable, the ruffles killed it for me.

The back view is worse than the front, if that's possible!

Hahahahaha! I agree!

Those back flounces have not appeared on a dress since 1878. As for the front - that is the material and color one would expect on a bridesmaid in a Sopranos episode.
