Euh... I am not aware of any European country where wearing fur is illegal. Which ones then? And what is the next step? Leather coats, bags, accessoires, shoes, gloves, car interiors, sofas, etc.? Seeing the fashion of last winter: coats with a fur-trimmed capuchon, I think fur is allowed in every European country.

There is a major difference between leather, which the animals are being raised for meat and the leather is a by-product, and the often inhumane hunting and farming practices for fur. People who have problem with fur have the same issue with hunting trophies. The killing of an animal for no other purpose but pure vanity. BTW, most 'fur trims' nowadays are faux.

As for European countries that have laws: Austria, the UK and Croatia have banned fur farming,and the Netherlands has for chinchilla and fox, and are working on mink. There is a current movement in Finland pushing for it. Sweden and Switzerland have very serious laws and regulations in place.

Alexandra was probably wearing something from her mothers wardrobe.

Uhm... it was just a simple question I asked out of sheer curiosity. I live in the UK and as Countessmeout has mentioned, fur farming is illegal here, and wearing real fur is a controversial topic. As I've said, I was simply curious about it's usage elsewhere in Europe. That is all.

I was the original poster who asked the question about fur, so I appreciate you for answering in a more helpful way.

It does come across as vintage/old to me - I think it's likely that you're correct.

GD Maria Teresa and Princess Tessy at the forum on learning disabilities on Jan 30th. I liked Tessy's outfit from afar (minus the brown purse and shoes), but the wrinkly shirt didn't tuck into the skirt properly on close ups.

I'm not a fan of this outfit personally though it suits Maria Teresa well.

I think the photo of GD Maria Teresa might have looked better had she had the model's arrangement of the jacket (asymmetrical, slightly open, only one facing of the lapel showing), and her angle to the camera.

I think she liked the coat and wore it , she seems secure in herself and in her body. She obviously knew it would make her look bigger and didn't mind.

2 of GD Maria Teresa's recent outfits.

Concert benefiting the Red Cross on February 26th. Nice lace top and black trousers. I dislike the chunky necklace.

Private concert featuring Stradivari instruments with family and guests on March 3rd.

Interesting brooch on the fluffy top:

Maria Teresa looked nice in both outfits, although I'm not so sure about her brooch with the second one.

Claire was very understated and elegant and regal at the Pope audience - best dressed of the princesses. Though Alexandra and Tessy were also very appropriate for the occasion as well and nicely dressed

Was disappointed that the Grand Duchess didn't wear a mantilla,Princess Claire was the best dressed,HGD Stéphanie's dress could have been a bit longer.

I do not understand why GD does not wear a vale. And what a faux-pas for Stephanie such a short skirt
