IMO it looks better on Tessy, but Maria Teresa shoes are more elegant than Tessys
I never realized that. I thought the outfit was familiar but couldnt figure it out. I liked it better on MT simply becasue she wore it better and the necjlace etc made a difference. On Tessy, the color was too old for her and it did look old for her

I meant an entirely new creation of the same outfit. For example Tessy bought the same outfit but in a much smaller size.

Or Tessy could be wearing MT's outfit but obviously had it adjusted to her size just like what the ladies in the Dutch familt do, we remeber Maxima & Mabel wearing QB's dresses

I thought it was lovely when Mabel wore Queen Beatrix engagement dress. I believe that Martha Louise also wear her mother's red engagement dress. They weren't recycling the dresses; they were wearing them as a sentimental gesture.

What dress did Maxima wear that was worn by Queen Beatrix?

I only know of Mabel wearing QB's dress so i'll speak of that.The difference is that Mabel's and QB bodies were more similar so the alterations would be few if any at all. However MT's body is significantly much larger than Tessy, much alteration would be needed. Hence, I believe if it would be easier to purchase the same outfit in a smaller size than to carry out such alterations.

IMO it would seem most likely that it is the "same" outfit, but they each have their own.

Wow. I can see someone from a diffrent house wearing the same dress, or even recycling, but it seems odd that after all of the comparissons that she has gotten to Mary, that Marie would wear the same dress, which (in my opinion) was worn better by Mary.

With all the comparison to Mary, I couldn't believe this: Royal ladies and their similar style - Part 1

WHY Marie? WHY?? We've all been trying to differentiate you, and say that you are completely different, and then you go wear the same dress (AFTER I might add)!

the purple is a nicer colour than the silver/grey and it would have really suited Mary as well

^true, but why would she choose to do it when everyone is comparing her to Mary? Does she like it, or simply not care?

Probably Marie is a natural woman to whom does not care about comparisons or forums where comparing her with Mary and people are outraged just because she wears a dress just like her sister-in-law one.

Either Marie didn't care, or she thought that since her dress was in a different color, and since Mary wore a sweater over her dress, that people wouldn't notice. I will say that I like the color of Marie's dress more than the color of Mary's dress.

True, but Mary wore it as a day dress, and Marie at evening, so the colours were most appropriate the way they wore, IMO.

I think that the way Mary wore the dress is better - looks more stylish somehow. Moreover I like grey colour more than purple.

to be honest, i didn't notice the same dress, even though they wore it shortly appart in time. i think the colours are distinctive enough to consider them different ones visually. i think they both looked great in them (although i prefer marie's choice of colour, the other one looks to me a bit washed out) and i consider it quite a gesture of camaraderie that they share their wardrobe secrets, just as any other two female friends would. i think they have proven that they are different (despite the same name, similar features and wearing the same dress) in countless ocassions and i doubt a dress would make us rethink that. :)

IMHO Mary helps Marie with selecting dresses, especially from Danish designers and as they both normally chose items from a Pret-a-porter-collection, it's understandible that they might end up with pieces from the same collections. Maybe they even view the latest collections at Mary's home together.
