I find the coat and the hat really awful.
Ugly colour, ugly material and ugly fur details.

Try as I may, I can't seem to warm to this dress and hat. The colour suits HM, but I don't think the rest works.

I disagree, I love the toque hat and the fur details. It looks very Edwardian, perfect for a lady of the Queen's age and stature.

My first reaction to both the day and evening outfits was of horror. But after looking at the pictures again, both have grown on me. It must be quite chilly (or even cold) in Slovenia, hence the fur trim. (Of course, where I am I'm sitting in shorts as I write this...we don't think of coats and gloves until January!!)

I do like that she is going for an Edwardian/Queen Mary look. I think it's a nice tribute to her beloved Grandmother. Whether that was her intention or not, who knows, but I think she looks lovely. The blue of her day clothes was beautiful and just set off her lovely white hair. I liked the toque hat (very QM) and it was nice to see her in a different style. I'm betting that the jewel on her hat was real, maybe a relic that was dusted off from the vaults (wishful thinking??)

The only flaw in her evening dress is that the neckline should have been a tiny bit lower to show off the necklace more. Or the necklace should have been shortened. I'm not a fan of the ruby tiara, to me, it's very spiky. If I ever get the chance to see it in person one day, perhaps I'll change my opinion.

I will be interesting to see if she keeps up the Edwardian & fur theme tomorrow.

The bright turquoise is great; but I'm not going to comment on the rest of the outfit...

The turquoise outfit was a little of a mistake but the toque alone looks great and if she had chosen a turquoise vest matching the hat with a black skirt, that would have been less shocking, IMO.

As for today, I think it's pretty alright. Except beige is a tad too dull but it fits sobriety after the extravagant turquoise.

Goodness day 2 is just as bad as the arrival outfit - the hat is so dumpy - i dont mind the coat and the tweed fabric but on both days she has choosen two awful hats

in this weeks hello magazine it says that during these two visits she will repeat the pink outfit from easter 2008 (during the transfer between Slovenia to Slovakia) and the red outfit from maudy day 2008 (weather permitting on a walkabout in Ljubjana). It also says that the evening gown was made from a piece of silver-grey fabric woven with gold brocade given to her as a gift in the middle eat over 20 years ago. However they did predict that she woudl wear Queen's Mary's diamond tiara - they got that wrong

But i seriosly hope that the pink andred outfits make an appearance as they were striking and elegant and will be a massive improvemnt on the two she has so far chossen to wear

The Queen's outfits seem to have impressed some.

Could anyone identify the dress Her Majesty The Queen wore during the Festival of Remembrance on Saturday 8 November. She wears Queen Mary's Kensington Bow Brooch with poppies. But I have seen the dress, but don't know when or where.
On Remembrance Sunday, The Queen wore a new black coat and new black hat.

She is looking younger and more elegant, lately. I bet she´s got a new cream, not in the market yet.

Look at HM at the age of 82, classy and chic combination, she is by far the best dressed lady of the evening from what I have seen so far, and that includes all the younger princesses as well. She is such a fabulous role model even in fashion, making others look like trying hard but not quite getting there because you can't buy class and style.

You stole my words, Duke!
I totally agree, the Queen was the best dressed lady! Very elegant and classy!

from what i can tell the dress isnt new - it is one of her timeless banquet dinners. This lady knows how to dress for the evening occassions

She looks beautiful. The color really suits her, and this outfit looks so soft and feminine.

I just think HM looks amazing and am in awe of her style especially in the last 10 years. I read an acticle in Majesty and wrote to her and praised the gorgeous look and colours. The gown on this occasion does not disappoint I remain crazy about her.
