Well, considering the nature of the event and that Mabel is not a member of the royal house I do not mind her dressing up rather flamboyantly, she attended the event on her personal title, not on behalf of the royal house. The princess is certainly not one of my favourite royals but her dedication to some good causes is admirable, esp. as she lives in London, has a normal job and is not a member of the royal house (not to mention that she was involved even before she was a princess).

The event raised 800.000 euros btw, which is a record for the AmsterdamDiner. Text in Dutch here.

IMHO She is one of these people who can spend money and still look like they picked their clothes at the Salvation Army bin.

OMG, what was she thinking, Mabel always keeps surprising me, not in the most positive way I'm afraid!

You have to remember that she is the "muze" of V and R.
But I agree, it is absolutely horrible

Well, she has managed to look like a Cone Head at the Aids event - made even worse by thet spangled Pucci outfit --- eeeeeek!
The she shows up in a burgundy potato sack with orange-red shoes!
I bet she thought that she was the height of fashion --- what a nightmare!
Mabel, get thee to a good stylist - and fast!

I agree with many of you! Mabel has looked hideous in the last several outings that we've seen her. She makes Maxima and Laurentien looked quite boring with her extravagant outfits! Someone please help her.

is it just me or does that outfit look like a cross between a graduation gown and the cape/apron/smock that you wear when getting a haircut?

Princess Mabel was in Johannesburg for a meeting of 'The Elders' on July 16th and 17th. She met Nelson Mandela too, just a few days before his 90th birthday.

A picture here.

Very nice photo. Mabel does do a lot of good work, unfortunately, it is often overshadowed by her sometimes outrageous outfits. This photo is very nice, and it is good to see that Mabel looks a bit more normal.

Oh for crying out loud! She looks like a cross between an 80's groupie, a mid-century school marm, and a gladiator.
