I know that the hotel was called the Mandarin, and that Mandarin is a Chinese dialect, but did Princess Anne have to wear a Chinese-inspired dress? It looks odd on her.

I don't mind the dress, as far as Anne's preferred style goes, but why does her hair always look so harsh? She needs softening up and a soft 'do' would really go toward that.

Anne's dress is a far sight better than Autumn's, that's for certain. In fact, I rather liked Anne's dress. Wish we could get a better picture of Zara's dress.

M-C's was not pretty. Beige is blah. And I didn't like the way it fit her, especially around the waist. Didn't care for A-M's dress either from the couple of pictures I was able to see. Same with big sister Margarethe's dress. I don't mind mixing and matching skirts but baby blue and chocolate brown should really be left in Vincent's nursery.

Love how Eugenie's dress gives the faint impression of an Edwardian waist. I don't hate Beatrice's dress, it just seems far too flashy for the night's festivities.

Don't like QE's dress at all. I hate the ruched waist on the front half of the dress, hate the cuffs on the puffy sleeves. The fabric is merely okay.

Loved the color of Mathilde's dress. It made her eyes POP! Stunning. Oh, and does anyone have any information about the necklace she wore?

I don't love M-T's dress. The color is gorgeous but the vertical bow in the front is distracting.

Princess Alexandra was so beautiful. Love the color, love the dress.

Sophie's dress is fail in all ways save the color, which looked divine on her. The wings off the top of the bodice front are too bizarre for words. Others have commented that the bodice itself seems to fit her rather stiffly. I wonder if that has to do with her broken rib. I assume that her torso is probably wrapped and that's what is giving the stiff appearance. Back to the rest of the dress. The straps come down at a weird angle in front, though they do show off that gorgeous necklace. And finally, my last nitpick about Sophie's appearance... Those tan lines! There are ways to hide the fact that one obviously does not tan on a regular basis but if you aren't going to employ any of them then step away from dresses that clearly highlight your tan lines!

I didn't mind Charlene's dress. I thought it was more of a silvery color than white or grey. Would have loved to have seen a better picture of Sofia's dress. Sonja's was okay on first glance and then I downgraded my opinion to a "meh".

Liked both Tatiana and CP Katherine of Serbia's dresses. Good colors on them and very attractive. Loved the flower in Tatiana's hair.

Already commented on Letizia & Victoria but they clearly wowed.

Would have loved to have seen Maxima. As well as the Victoria, Letizia, Mathilde, M-T, Tatiana, Katherine, Eugenie, Alexandra, and even Sofia and Charlene did tonight I bet Maxima hit it out of the park too.

ETA - LOVE the Duchess of Gloucester bringing out some BLING with those emeralds! And her dress isn't too shabby either! Add her to my list above, lol.

Best dressed in my opinion:
1. Letizia
DiarioFemenino
Simply perfect. The dress was fantastic and her hairdo and make up nice.
2. Victoria
Zimbio
Very beautiful dress. Red suits her so well. But I didn´t like her hairdo, it was too tight and made her look 10 years older than she is.
3. Maria Teresa
Zimbio
Beautiful dress, loved the colour.

Disappointmens:
1. Charlene
2. Beatrice
3. Tatiana

Oh really???!And you didn't even see Princess Máxima then.Not so surprising,she and her husband stay at the Mandarin,
so she didn't have to arrive....

I like Anne's dress btw,the comment on the origins of the name are below the belt,but then hey...since when does that
matter in certain circles..??...

Anne is one of the great woman that pull through and never was occupied with any special do according to the demands
of silly people craving on crazes of the day only.HRH is herself,regardless,whenever whereever.

Anyway,let's get this wedding on the road!!


The venue for last nights dinner:

Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park Hotel - A Luxury 5 Star Hotel in London, England

I agree. Autumn was also a huge disappointment. I don't know what she was thinning.

Beatrice and Tatiana were the worst dressed IMO.

... yes, those tan lines !!! ... reminds me of Zara at Peter & Autumns wedding. Haven't these ladies heard of spray on tan, would help disguise those lines. .... And how did she break her rib? I hadn't heard about that.

All the ladies looked absolutely lovely. Everyone seemed happy to be included in the festivities for this very joyous occassion. It is only reasonable that not all dresses appeal to us. Sometimes cultural differences make themselves very clear in comments posted here. But to use the rude and degrading comments and one-liners are inexusable. All ladies are wonderfully groomed and gala ready and they all willingly pose for the photographers so we can get a look at their gowns and jewelry. If the wonderful happenings around this royal wedding is not to your liking perhaps there are other sites with women and dresses more to your taste. This is after all The Royal Forum.

A little bit off the subject but I just saw a photo of her new baby yesterday and I went weak at the knees...what a GORGEOUS infant!

Any extra weight is well worth it!

Brava Mathilde! She was one of the most gorgeous of the Royal women at the Mandarin Hotel last night...ita that tangerine is her colour!

And her chignon was exquisite!

There were some really nice gowns and some plain, but overall not bad.

My favorite is Letizia's - color and embroidery are amazing, she looks 100% princess-like.
Victoria was stunning in her red gown, strong make-up and lovely hairdo.

I also like Marie Chantal, GD Maria Teresa, Eugenie, Princess Michael of Kent and Princess Alexandra.

Charlene's gown was hmm interesting, I would never choosed it but she worked it very well.

HM the Queen as always lovely.

Can't wait for today, these hats and pearls I hope
