Lovely colour, but somehow the cut is just not right.

Marie is a beautiful woman and ought to stun everyone in evening attire - but somehow she just doesn't IMO. It's the cut of many of her evening dresses - they tend to look a bit like night dresses (expensive night dresses though ....)

Marie looked great at the gala. She wears purple very well & the cut suits her.

I love the dress on her but I find it boring that she is always favouring this type of material.

I think that Princess Marie looks absolutely gorgeous! Both she and Crown Princess Mary look fantastic in purple, which is also the colour of their birthstone (amethyst).
But she seems to wear a new dress everytime she has a gala engagement. I think I can count on one hand the number of times that she has recycled an evening dress. If Crown Princess Mary did the same thing...she would be ripped to shreds and called extravagant by royal watchers! How lucky for Princess Marie that she is not the Crown Princess and future queen as she does not attract the same level of criticism that CP Mary does.

True, but Marie doesn't attend as many gala events. She's not the crown princess, and as such has fewer events. I guess, she can spend her money more freely.

I loved this purple dress on Marie. It is a shade that really suits her.

Great color on her, don't really like the cut. It's a little dull, imo

Princess Marie's evening gown exhibits a very smart design i.m.o. -I particularly fancy the asymmetrical v-neck and the diagonal flow from Marie's left shoulder to that nested overlay on her right hip http://kongehuset.dk/materialemappe/...finland-21.img. Moreover, I second your comments regarding purple as a winsome colour for her.

Marie has numerous purple evening gowns - and the colour suits her very nicely

But couldnt she have recycled one of her other purple gowns - did she need another?

Also i dont like the neckline of this gown - it is very very low partciarly cause of the crossover with the straps. It also looks very odd - has the effect of a one shoulder gown but isnt and it just doesnt work with the sash i feel

I do believe that Marie has a much smaller clothing budget (if at all) from the state than the crown princess, and therefore most of her clothes are bought with her husband's private money, and she is therefore under much less scrutiny regarding how much she spends etc.

How can anyone, beside Joachim and Marie, know whether Marie's clothes is bought with 'private money' or with Joachim's appanage - no matter the size of said appanage?

I love love love this outfit otherwise, but I think a sheer came underneath wasn't appropriate for this event.

I wish she'd broken up the unrelenting purple with some accessory (other than the shoes). My personal preference is to see a dress or skirt rather than pants. But that's just my personal preference.

Not a bad look. I like that the jacket and slacks are from different materials and textures. Marie looks lovely in purple.

I just love that sequined jacket! The slacks make it look too daywear, though. Maybe paired with a lovely chiffon skirt would have bumped up her evening look.

I like the separate parts, but I don't like them together, also IMO she is a little under dressed for a gala dinner.
