Keep in mind she probably has very little say in what she wears. She gets the last word, yes, but a team of stylists are to blame/praise when it comes to any celebrity looking bad/good.

I couldnt agree more. Many royal women have demonstrated many times that you can wear a 'uniform'-like modest formal dress that is entirely appropriate for this type of event but is still look elegant and beautiful-these things are not mutually exclusive.

I think she looked very beautiful, elegant, formal with much dignity fit for a future queen. Her gown is gorgeous from the close ups seen in CPMB.

I'm afraid I have to agree. I didn't like Mary's dresses that much, especially the second one. I'm not a big fan of that print, I think. The first dress was surrounded by a sort of medieval air, which can be really nice, but it just isn't my style. I'm sure Mary can look more stylish, even when you have to look formal for a occasion like this. But hey, I'm really in love with that tiara of the ruby parure! Wish I had something like that, I would wear it the whole day, inside the house ofcourse. I wouldn't want people to chase me down the street trying to get a hold of it!

There is no need to make excuses for Mary. The dress is not that nice. The design is kinda pretty but the colors butcher it completely. It looks like a flamboyent cheetah was killed to make that outfit. Im sorry, there are much more elegant and fashionable ways to dress like a grandeur princess then what Mary wore. The first dress was so so and she kinda got away with it but this is just wrong. The whole "uniform" explanation doesnt cut it. Federick and Henrik wore uniforms and they look dashing. Im sure Mary could wear a elegant"uniform" and look good in it. Is she wearing the family order for the first time? Will she wear a gala dress to her own Charity Cours? Was the new year event the only tiara event? Also, who was being honored at this event? Does anybody have a guest list or a programme?

Haha! Ten cool points for pollyemma!

Seriously, the dress she wore to this reception (the gold/brown thing) is terrible! She can do much better and we've seen the proof from the past. The formal attire requirement only gives her MORE options because there are so many pretty dresses out there. There's not much of an excuse for this one. Her hair is nice though. I much prefer the look she had in the blue dress from a few days ago.

I am not a big fan of either dress. Although the color and pattern of the second one was very interesting, I think that it would have made a better dress than jacket. Maybe these types of dresses are in style and I'm just missing it.

The color of Mary's first dress was gorgeous, but the dress was a bit matronly. I'm really just "meh" about the second outfit. I don't love it, but I don't think it's terrible. The ruby parue is a wonderful set. I thought Alexandra's dress for the January 1st Court was gorgeous, although I'm surprised she'd recycle her 2004 dress for the same occasion.

When Mary's event happens, on the fifth of this month, she'll go all out by shoving the housecoat to the back of her closet and break out the amazing dresses she's known for wearing. Or not.

Let's mix this discussion up a bit: I'll bet Mary will wear yet another housecoat, hair in a giant beehive do, simple make-up, and black shoes for her own kur. Anyone else think so?

The Queen and CP Mary, perfect candidates for the show "What NOT to wear..." My God what happened? I'm telling you, the style of the Queen is rubbing off on our Mary...horrible, horrible. Also, how tall is Mary's husband? He looks terribly short...

You know what. After looking at MUCH MUCH better pics of Mary at these events I have changed my opinion somewhat. The first dress was actually quite gorgeous. It was a bit tight and matronaly but very beautifull. Im still iffy on the second dress. Colors were horrible. Just isnt working out for me.

I have to agree. I've been browsing some pictures too and I think the first dress wasn't that horrible, though I still think the cut looks matronly on Mary. The color was gorgeous, though.
But the second dress... no I'll stick to my first impression... :(

Hopefully we don't get to see another of pollyemma's housecoats on Mary's own kur, I keep my hopes up high... Mary is a very fashionably lady!

Couldn't agree more!

But what was up with the hair styles? Esp. on the Jan. 1st event, it looked like Mary and Alexandra used the same hair stylist?!

You know, it really is strange that Princess Alexandra used the same dress for the same event two years in a row. How much do these dresses cost, anyway? Even in my modest family, for instance, the women would not wear the same dress to two family weddings in a row. If she had a different (lesser) character, I would guess that she is trying to make a point. But I'm a real believer in her character.

Her day clothes are also recycled to a strange degree. She has a beautiful figure, she really doesn't need terribly expensive clothes to look good or to look royal. I'm surprised and curious.

Mary's husband, I believe, is around 5'8" or 5'9". If anyone has his correct height please let us know.:)

It is obvious that Mary's husband is not 6ft or above like Joachim. The reason why Fred looks so short (from what I believe) may be due to his long torso. People with long torso's typically have very short legs; as a result he looks short.

I've read several times on this board and others that he's about 5'9 and that Mary is roughly 5'6-5'7...correct me if I'm wrong!

It is during the day and attendees have been advised to wear day suits.

[quote=Noelle9982]Well said fromEU!

Mary's job first and foremost is to act as a representative of one of the oldest royal families in the world, not to be a fashion icon. This dress wasn't worn to make a statement...it was worn because it was appropriate for the formality of the evening.

If I recall correctly, this event was held during the day, hence no tiaras.
