BYe Bine
Actually, I like it too! I agree that the material is a bit on the shiny side, but the cut is basically ok, the colour is basically ok and the small frou- frou train is basically ok as a cheeky detail! For those reasons I like it, and for once wee Marie stole the picture from CP Mary!

IMHO . . .

Pretty as Marie is, not everybody can wear everyTHING, I think.

This, sadly, seems to be a classic case of the dress wearing HER, instead of the other way around.

Bless her heart, for me, it's TOO shiny, the ruffled train in the back is TOO much, and --- great color notwithstanding --- all that loud Pepto-Bismol pink just slams me in the face. It's also TOO wrinkled-looking (did anyone not realize that fabric would end up looking like a crumpled tissue?!). I hate to say it, but it kind of almost looks like she might've slept in the thing the night before, or something!

And I agree with other posters above who said it looked as though Marie raided Margrethe's closet, too.

Instead of appreciating her overall beauty in a dress that would enhance and complement HER, I just seem to keep focusing in on that DRESS, saying "Whoah!", and completely forgetting how lovely she is.

Mary beat her out, this time.

Also, it must've been reasonably warm for a winter evening in Denmark, because I don't remember seeing pictures of any of the ladies rocking those fabulous furs of theirs that they seem to break out for this event, a lot of the time.

They all choose some bright and shinny colours...why??? Mary was the winner...this pink dress on Marie just doesn't suit her, that is not her colour....and I don't like the dress at all...

The pink dress reminds me at the pink dress Princess Alexandra wore at the wedding of Mary and Frederik.

The colours are similar and the shiny material, but: the styles and fit are different!. Alexandras 2004 gown looked like a panic buy from a '24/7 Chinese taylor' in Hong Kong, which it probably was since she was on the way out of her marriage and didn't care!

If Alexandra's gown was a panic buy what is Marie's?
Perhaps Alexandra didn't care anymore but she still managed to look regal (despite shiny material and all). And SHE wore the dress.
Marie manages to look tacky (despite tiara, order of elephant and all). I loved her 2009 gown, liked the one from 2010 and would have loved the 2011 gown in another colour. But this pink number is just horrible and the colour totally overwhelmes her.

Does anybody have a photo of Alexandra´s gown? Because I´m curious about it, since so many seem to compare both dresses.

Thank you, Artemisia
I´ll never understand the fondness of the Danish royal ladies for those shiny fabrics. For me they manage to make a dress tacky whatever the design is.

Alexandra wasquite an elegant princess, but this dress is ugly, IMO. And that thing over the shoulders looks odd.

I think it doesn´t resemble Marie´s dress so much, other than for the pink colour and shiny fabrics.

Marie's dress looks loud, cheap & tacky. Truly horrible!

Her posture is perfect, the neckline is nice, and the earrings are gorgeous. The dress, I agree with most, is pretty awful. Without the ruffles,maybe a lower back and a little more fullness in the skirt in the back could have worked.
I am a sucker for silk satin, but that color just doesn't suit her.
Her hair could have been less severe also.

To me, Alexandra's dress makes her look like a Fairy Godmother on leave from "Sleeping Beauty", or something (Note: She left her wand at home.).

Personally, I think she and Marie are tied in the "Fugly, Expensive Dress" category, when you take both these dresses into consideration.

I agree with you, Annie, that what draws these to together are the loud pinks, and the shiny fabrics. But even only those two things were enough to make a few people recall Alexandra's dress and connect it to Marie's.

There ARE times that Marie looks totally spectacular.

Sadly, this is not one of those.

I wonder if she might possibly eventually be in the market for a new stylist, dresser, or whatever it's called?

Princess Marie in black at the premiere of the Danish movie "The Hunt" in Copenhagen on January 9, 2013. The upper part is fine, but I would not have chosen those wide black pants and those shoes:

I like the jacket and the top but the pants are a poor choice for someone of her height .... and the shoes make it all appear very chunky and she shorter. IMO

Marie arriving for the twins birthday part in cream pants, puffer short jacket which is a bit too shiny for my taste and silver heels.

Full look 1 ** Full look 2

This outfit is terrible, IMO.
The jacket's colour doesn't look good with the pants, at all

I agree, it looks really weird together (and Joachim's outfit looks even weirder).

I second your opinion. Not a good look. A lighter colored coat (maybe woolen pea-coat) would have looked better, along with different color shoes.

Sporty crinkly jacket paired with dressy slacks and high heels. Not even the fur salvages this look.
