One can't see the dress but for the awful shawl.

I don't know why she even wore a shawl. It's not like it's cold.

It looks lovely and romantic, IMO. I love the colors of this outfit and it's original.

I agree. I first wasn't sure about the outfit, but it grows on me and I think MC looked really lovely.

She had to wear a shawl for inside the church (covering the shoulders) but most of the other guests carried theirs (Mary, Maxima, Marie, etc) and showed off the dresses outside.

It is a lovely shawl. Perhaps she forgot to take it off outside.

I have seen her wear this shawl 2 other times and her mother wore it at one of her childrens baptism! I would love to see the dress without. She does look beautiful IMO though!!

I actually like this dress and thought it was one of the better looks at the wedding.

I always thought of Princess Marie-Chantal as a beautiful young woman with the finest taste, but that was beyond my imagination! She looked so elegant and aristocratic, simply perfect! Her hairdo is just amazing - great choices IMO!

Has she gained weight? Or is something else going on?

I also think the dress is not flattering for her, but it looks cool and feminine. I just hate those shoes and they are highly unflattering.
The dress for the wedding's day seemed nice but we saw little of it because of the shawl. Maybe the shawl was supposed to cover the soulders in church for decency. I think the whole look was simple and joyful... and MC wore colours at last !

I don't think so. The dress makes her look a bit more curvy than usual, which is actually nice, IMO. Plus she has given birth to five children! I think she's in a perfect shape.

Dress & Shawl Valentino.

I have seen in in boutiques & was actually a very pretty dress but with no special cut to, it was just a straight cut. The bead work is in metallic/rusted silver on the bust area. She had ruined it would covering the best part of the dress up with a Valentino flower shawl.

^ Thank you, Dazz! I first thought the dress was by Chanel (Charlotte Casiraghi had worn a similar dress earlier in the spring ). I don't think the shawl ruined the look, it rather added some 'character' to it. JMO

Thumbs up

i enjoy this thread so much. Marie-Chantal is one of my personal royal icons, she is exciting, she always experiments, never gets boring; superb lady! Her wedding outfit here is lovely and she always looks gorgeous when wearing Valentino. The shawl is so rich and yet underlines her statuesque features.

This fabulous shawl had thousands of crystals embroidered on it, something that very few noticed. MC is glorious indeed, luv the Miller Sisters since like 1993. Gr8 ladies n' fashionistas,they love Valentino but the Master loves them too. He has always taken really good care of them, they're among his very beloved clients. Pink dress was fantastic, excellent job by the Master, i'm bowing.

I agree Marie Chantal looked wonderful at the wedding in Greece even if a bit matronly compared to the other princesses with that heavy shawl. She is aging very well! It's unbelievable that she has five kids!

hermes, i so agree with you. The Miller sisters are phenomenal!! thousands of little crystals sounds so dreamlike to me, do you have a good picture of the shawl perhaps? i would like to buy it for my mother.
