Maybe without so many ruffles it would have looked better.

I thought that was for the pre-wedding dinner for Prince Willem-Alexander and Maxima?

Me too, I was a bit confused when reading the caption the agency offered together with the pic, but I copied it nevertheless, so you could be right

I really love Marie Chantal's style and the clothes she wears are gorgeous. Some of the pictures in this thread I haven't seen before.

this one: Marie Chantal
For some reason I like this. In not usually crazy about wild dresses nor MCs sense of fashion... but this one matched her blonde hair and the color suited her

I liked this dress & if not mistaken this was in fashion back then. I think it suited her. She has a great sense of fashion but recently i find her boring, everything she seems to wear is above the knees & loose which makes her look like she's wearing a plastic bag. But she does know how to choose the right cut & color

I am trying to get a nice photo of the mint green coat/dress ensemble that MC wore to Infanta Cristina and Inaki Urdangarin's wedding in Barcelona. Does anyone have one or several photos of this outfit? IMO, it was among her best dressy, daytime looks. Thanks for any help! And if anyone can post Rex Features photos of MC's outfit at the wedding of Felipe and Letizia, I also loved that daytime ensemble!

She said that the clothes she designed weren't "grown up" as she likes children to dress like children and doesn't like the idea of children wearing clothes that are too grown up foe them.
It is a freestanding shop called Marie Chantal. She has one in London and one in New York City and in Greece. The website is Marie-Chantal
The clothes are all designed (supposedly) by Marie Chantal and are also sold in posh stores like Bergdorf Goodman in New York, etc.
The clothes are old-fashioned and expensive.
I think that MC herself dresses very Old Money. She must spend a fortune on her clothing - it seems to be the best quality.
You would never see her covering herself in a deisgner's logo just to be able to say: "I can afford Chanel!"
To look at her, she almost the clone of all of the wealthy young blonde women running around New York and London. I think that her sister Pia is
more beautiful, but with exquiste grooming, make-up and MONEY, Marie Chantal always looks very striking. However, she runs the risk of looking older than her husband who has a very boyish face.

I agree with you on MC's style. She has a very typical Manhattan socialite style. She is very Park Avenue. Of her sisters, MC always had the most classic style.

Here is a photo of Marie-Chantal taken at the opening of her London store in October 2008:

I like this dress. She looks very elegant in it, and she still has that baby glow.

Marie-Chantal attending Prince Charles 60th birthday party, November 2008:

I am not a fan of this outfit. It looks like Coco Chanel meets goth. I also think that MC looks terrible. Her hair is strange, and her face looks exhausted and angry (I would be exhausted too, if I had 5 children). Not her best fashion moment.

i think she got a bit confused when she read her invite - it wanst a fancy dress halloween theme

Her hair was a complete untamed mess - i know she only had a kid recently but if Mary had her hairdresser doing her hair at MC's house then surely she could have got something done as well
