I tend to agree with you. I feel that the shawl and brooch were too large. I think that I would have liked it more if it had been smaller and more in proportion with MT's short stature.

the bride was beautiful.

Mary looked best in the daytime minus the hat.
MT has perhaps a thyroid problem but no matter what she wears I can not get over how fat she is.

in the evening paola, claire and mathilde were pretty, did not like what astrid was wearing at all.

Caroline was disappointing, do not like either outfits.

Luxembourg: The Cousins at the Wedding

I am shocked/perplexed/surprised to see Archduchess Marie-Christine's ensemble. It is not summer. The dress is too short and too revealing for attending the event in the church.

When fate gives you relatives, there is no guarantee that they will have good taste. Royal or not - that's life.

I can't get over how disgusting this statement was.

I know that many here have complained that some of the female guests have been wearing too short skirts, but I guess that many of the dresses have been ready-to-wear and not especially made for the ladies, they haven't been able to adjust the skirt lengths, as much of today's ready-to-wear dresses are short. I rather see a woman in a dress she wants to wear even if the hem is above the knee, than in a dress she's uncomfortable in and would rather not wear, but that has a "appropriate" length.

According to this article in Wort.lu there were hair dressers arranged for the guests: Wort.lu - Tom Marcineau Coiffeur der Braut

Meraude, it seems to be a matter of mere inches which is at stake in these short dresses.
I make my peace that skirts may be a couple of inches above the knee, as that is the young fashion. However, when they are 3 1/2 or 4 inches above the knee, it begins to get dicey. Some of the youngsters with the Austrian contingent had very nice legs, but I wonder if that's reason to show them off so daringly. I would say 2 inches above the knee is enough. I know, silly subject. I am just an old lady, for whom a proper skirt hits middle of the knee or lower. Some of the young ladies had very nice presentations with middle of the knee skirts, including Stephanie, Claire Lademacher, Xenia whom Claire arrives with, and so forth. It seems the men really like the short skirts, though.
If hunting...

I think Tessy is definitely pregnant, she does have poor posture but still usually looks slim.

Alexandra looked lovely at the civil wedding, I actually liked her little suit. However her bridesmaids dress was terrible. Worst of the day.

Maxima had a beautiful outfit which was just let down by the eccentric hat.

I thought the Countess of Wessex wore a lovely outfit as did Princess Martha-Louise.

That is the cruelest thing I have ever seen on this forum. Were you a bully growing up or were you bullied and this is who you have become as a result? Either way, you don't strike me as a very nice person.

I still remember my teens when mini skirts (and hot pants) were in fashion, and for me those short skirts shown at the wedding are far longer than the ones I used to wear in the late 60ies. Then the fashion quickly changed and I went from wearing skirts that hardly covered my butt to dresses down to my ankles within a year.

Best Dressed was definitely Letizia then maybe M-M, but I gotta say the outfit Maxima chose was probably the worst I have ever seen, I don't know what she was thinking?? Sometimes, and this includes everyday people, I wonder if people have full length mirrors. Maxima usually picks winners and looks great but this outfit was awful!!
IMHO, these were some of the worst dressed royals I have seen in a long time

Maxima looked fine, Leteiza looked lovely, Mette-Marit looked like she was attending a funeral, beautiful woman, horrible outfit. Caroline looked comical at both events. Sophie looked like she was going shopping, when someone asked her to come to the wedding, so she grabbed a hat. M-T is a beautiful woman. She is a plus size. At the gala she looked stunning, the wedding outfit was just the wrong color and style for body type. Mary Matilde and Victoria looked very nice.

I haven't said much about which sartorial splendors I liked, so here goes. I loved Letizia's dress for the religious ceremony. I loved Mary's dress for the religious ceremony; the hat was daring but worked. I didn't hate Alexandra's orange gown as much as some did, but it did look home-made, with seams that were not perfect--astonishing! I thought some of the men's suits were great, particularly those of Felix, Louis, and Sebastian--what great looking guys. The late Countess de Ligne's sister, escorted into the cathedral by GD Henri, was smashing, perhaps the best of all of them, and even carried off that platter hat without looking silly.
