I like the dress, except it's lacking a necklace or brooch.

MY husband, peering over my shoulder, thought it was a bandage. (note to self - arrange eye test for husband, ...or perhaps not )

LOL.. It does appear to be a bandage on her head! Hardly flattering. I'm not a big fan of her dress, either. But the color is lovely, and she does look nice.

I love this colour on Queen Mathilde and I love capes so I am impressed by the design of the dress! The hat is not the right one for the dress - maybe she should have had a hat in the same colour? A diamond brooch would have looked good with this dress!

The dress had a Gothic theme. However, the execution was poor. The turban hat is terrible.

I think she looks awful. What's with the superhero capes? Maxima is doing it as well. Her hat/turban/bandage is awful and doesn't go. Only thing I like is the dress colour and her smile.

I agree. The cut of the dress is nice and the color is wonderful but the hat is just terrible.

The hat was bad. I agree. She is so lovely, it is a pity that someone sold her that thing. But in the end she wore it. Between her and her mother-in-law, the milliners should be hung. A bandage, that was very apt. The dress is pretty, but nothing spectacular.

I'm with your husband! She looks like she came straight from the army field hospital with a concussion.

I love the cut and colour of the dress. It is a colour that really flatters her but it suffered from a severe shortage of bling to raise it from "meh" to "magnificent". As to the hat? I think it would take more than a spoon full of sugar to make that medicine go down!

Mathilde's dress idea is great but the end result could've been better IMO. The colour is lovely. Not sure what was going on with her turban which didn't really look like a turban but more of a piece of fabric around her head.

That thing on her head looks awkward. Either a hair or an elegant updo would have been much better. The dress is nice though.

She looks like she took one of Max's dish towels and wrapped it around her head, sometimes Max does the same thing.........and to think they pay money for this? I have some old hats, around 50 years old, if she wants she can have them. The dress is nice and the color is perfect one her, that thing on the head needs to be tossed.

I don't like the mummy returns turban it ruined her outfit which was nice but a brooch might have completed the look.

The dress is not quite my cup of tea but the colour is very nice on her.
The "hat" is indeed the worst part of the ensemble, what was she thinking?

It looks like she forgot her proper hat and wrap her head around some material she found in her linen closet. I like the color of her dress and her earrings but not those sleeves; Is that a coat/cape?

Love the dress, but the hat is a big miss.
