I do like the concept of the dress, and the colour works very well with HM. That said, IMO, the tailoring could improve considerably. Look at the side view pic above.

I am also not a fan of the matchy hand bag. A clutch bag to match the shoes would have been great, in my view.

Indeed very elegant. And an outfit from the French house of Dior with Belgian Raf Simons as creative director is the perfect diplomatic choice.

It looks to me as tho' standards are slipping at Dior.. The concept and colour is ravishing, but the execution is very poor..
The hem is so badly stitched i my first thought was this must be by Natan !

Perhaps I didn't look closely enough at the tailoring, however Mathilde looks every inch the Queen!

I didn't notice a problem with the hem stiches but do see too much gapping at the closure.
The outfit is simply elegant and what a great color. I just think it screams for gloves.
the hat, hair and earrings are just perfect on her.Every inch a lady (except gloves!)

I fully agree with you. The side seams appear to stick out and not to be properly pressed. One would expect precise tailoring from Dior. Perhaps a gray clutch would have diluted the pink colour.

Love the overall look but when seeing the side view there is a "pulling" effect as if the fit isn't correct. And I'm not sure about the finish at the waist and hemline.

High definition really brings home the issues. But I still love the look - very 50's to me, with a touch of the Maxima's as well.

EDIT: - sorry, just seen that Muriel and others have said the same about the finish.

Neither did I. Queen Mathilde looked very elegant and trés chic today. Every inch a Queen.

Not keen on the bow, but otherwise lovely.

This look is fantastic. Very regal. And good choice of a french brand with a belgium designer. I think the clutch was appropriate in this colour. A pair of gloves would have made it look even more regal.

Im surprised that reports are saying this is a Dior creation, I wonder if it is ready to wear or Haute Couture. My impression that it is a Natan outfit, its very much his style and look.

I love the color on herm the idea and the cut but I find the fabric to be very thick and stiff.

Love the overall, but the bow is too sweet sweet for my taste. Idon´t like bows. But i love the colour and simple hat. So nice.

She looks lovely and every inch the Queen. Beautiful soft color. But I have to agree with the others about the poor tailoring. It is indeed gapping across her chest area and the seams aren't pressed well. I also agree that gloves would have added to the regal look. That said, this is a wonderful, flattering outfit for Mathilde.

She looks even more elegant than she normally does. And the pink/black color scheme is so very French!

I didn't even notice the substandard tailoring until it was pointed out here..

She wore gloves but in "neutral"

I think you must be right, this is Natan, with the bow he uses a lot and the poor fit. It has got to be.
Glad she wore gloves but matching pale pink would have been perfection.

Inside and outside the main outfit , King Philippe wore a winter coat outside.
