Wow, I really can see throughout the dress. Thank goodness for the extra material in the front of the dress. Means it is a pretty cheap dress, not lined. Probably too hot to wear a slip under it there

The grey lace dress was quite unflattering in the fit, style and color. The dress seemed to be an off fit around the bust and waist area, the color washed her out and the dress was a bit too long. Moreover, the belt looked like it was a gift ribbon tied around her waist. She could've done so much better.

The dress at London fashion week was really pretty IMO and I loved those heels matched with it.

She definitely needed a better bra with the grey dress and the ribbon should have been shorter. I liked the look for fashion week.

Marie-Chantal attended the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party in Beverly Hills, California, on February 22, 2015, wearing a long creme white dress with a flower print.
The combination of that fabric with cut-outs creates the impression that the top part was bursting , but besides that it's nice.

Alexander McQueen Pre Fall 2014 dress

I love the hair style, its also looks slightly darker which is great on her.
The dress, as you said it looks like it's bursting apart. Besides that, the print and color and fit is something she pulls off well.

The top of the dress is definitely too small on her. A shame really, because her hair and make-up are flawless.

I don't like it on her at all it really does nothing for her IMO I agree though for once her hair is fabulous and her makeup not too aging very flattering. OIMO

Personally I think the whole "Look" just goes to show that money can buy neither class nor taste.
She looks like "Mutton dressed up as Lamb.
She should take a leaf from her Mother in Law - Queen Anne Marie has always looked classy. But then again she has true breeding.

Ah ha, that is because she messed with the dress to be a little more modest. If you look at the model, you can see that the middle slit should not be attached, the model has it left open showing a lot of skin in the center, typical cleavage area. This also makes the models breasts look kind of apart and droopy, a look maybe mc wanted to avoid. Only a dress a model with perfect posture could wear. The earrings make up for it

Are those real cut-outs on her dress or is there a flesh toned material there? I didnt know that she could wear something like that w.o. the whole protocol thingy.... I understand they arent reigning but they attend royal events regularly, sometimes more than other reigning families so...anyway no big deal, I just never thought she could where that! Love the dress either way.

Oh.. and she has eye-shadow eyes her eyeshadow was worth putting on if you know what I mean....

I was a little surprised too, but I do really like it. In the close up pictures you can see that the vertical slits over her chest are real cut-outs and the horizontal cut-outs underneath those have flesh-tone sheer material

Princess Marie-Chantal wore a Dolce and Gabbana gown, exclusive to net-a-porter.com at the dinner and dance celebration for her parents (Robert and Chantal) 50th wedding anniversary at Villa d'Este Hotel in Lake Como, Italy. The dinner party was hosted/planned by the 3 sisters - Pia, MC and Alexandra.

I think MC's headband is also from Dolce and Gabbana, but since the designers made several designs for their collection, I can't tell which one MC is wearing.

Both sisiters looked lovely. I like Alexandra's gown more as it has clean lines and bright colour. Marie Chantal's dress is all right. Richelieu embroidery adds a delicate touch to the dress.

I'm liking Alexandra's dress much more than MC's. The D&G dress looks to be a little snug on her. And for the price, I'd have picked Alex's dress. I mean, WOW, is the price of MC's dress correct? $24,000?

MC looks lovely, but I agree that her dress seems to be a little tight on her. I prefer Alex's dress.

Yes, it's $24,000.

But it's quite possible that the gown was borrowed.

Alexandra's: Monique Lhuillier One Shoulder Pleated Gown | SHOPBOP
Same with Alexandra. She's good friends with the designer so I think this might be a loan too. I wonder if it is the exact gown that actress Emmy Rossum wore:
