Don't you mean the comtesse de Lannoy's sister?

No one upstaged Countess Stephnaie it was her day

I can safely say that no one dressed to out do the bride, all the ladies dressed beautiful no one was able to anticipate wether the weather would have rained or shine although a few of them could have travelled with appropriate attire in case the necessity had arisen.

The star of the day was Countess Stephanie. She wore that wedding dress with "such elegance". A Big COMPLEMENT to the designer, seamtresses, make up artist,hairdresser and all those who put Stephnie together.

I must mention that on two ocassions Stephnie embraced Grand Duchess Theresa, her body language told of her profound gratitude. I envisioned that Stephanie has found a new mother, who better can play this part other than GT?.

From the moment MT stepped out of the car with her son to the very end of the ceremony, this was one woman that was totally sending sunbeams out every time she looked at the bride and groom. Its very plain to see that mother and son have a profoundly deep relationship and I'm almost positive that Stephanie and MT will grow quite close also. It must really have supported Stephanie a lot to know her mother-in-law was there for her after losing her own mother just a short time ago.

I thought everything that MT wore for the wedding suited her. The vibrant color of the dress almost (but not quite) echoed the happiness that she just couldn't contain.

I agree. It was very moving. Stephanie said last week that she has a new "Luxembourg maman" and we all saw that the last couple of days. MT seems to be acting as both surrogate mother and fairy godmother to her new daughter-in-law now. How beautiful, and what a relief for Guillaume that he will not be pulled between these two women he loves most, like his father was back in the day.

I wonder what Stephanie calls her new mother-in-law? She might not feel comfortable actually calling her maman out of loyalty to her own beloved, late mother Alix.

Im not crazy about Letizia's outfit. Yes she looked good and the color was great on her but I found the coat to be wearing her rather then her wearing the coat. It seemed a bit too big for her. She looks better in softer outfits, softer lace, softer fabrics.

Best dressed was most definitely Princess Letizia. The rich lace coat over her outfit was exquisitely chic and elegant whilst the combination of the peach and pale aubergine shades was strikingly unusual. A very lovely and refined look indeed.

I agree that Countess of Wessex lands on worst dressed list. Her overall was really nice but what was on with the print of her dress was just off. I was also disappointed that her outfit was too dark for a wedding.

Princess Tessy surprisingly was dressed really nicely. Though she could've gone for a different color and still look as good. Does anyone know who designed her dress?

Unfortunately Sophie, Countess of Wessex, got it completely wrong after a series of show stopper creations. This dress, from the gaudy black print to the design and fit was just too awful for words. Not a very flattering look at all.

In my opinion :

Best dressed: Princess Lalla Salma and Princess Letizia of Spain
Worst dressed: Princess Maxima of Holland, Princess Victoria of Sweden, Princess Mathilde of Belgium ( although Friday was gorgeous in her royal-blue dress), Princess Caroline of Monaco

Countess of Wessex 's dress pattern is nice but as upholstery fabric. Is not suitable for the royal wedding.
Princess Tessy of fashion designers do not know what I'm wondering.

I think the top is too revealing, the length of the dress does not bother me, together she showes too much

Edouard Vermeulen /NATAN said on TV that the Grand Duchess MT telephoned him about
Tessy ’s dress and he adviced....
He was sitting next to Elie Saab in the Church and said to him it is a Princess’s wedding dress. Elie Saab told him that the dress took hours and hours work.
I think that Natan who is working to gether with Fabienne Delvigne could do better. The material of Princess Mathilde ’s dress was low key.
He should not adice MT to wear his Natan’s fake brooch as she was wonderful jewelry herself.

For me the designer should not disclose who called to him, is not it? He is indiscreet. Especially when it revealed that who will be wearing outfits designed by him at the royal wedding. He could tell it after the wedding and not before.

I guess I'm the only one who didn't like Letizia or Tessy's outfits. Letizia looks overwhelmed by the fabric and that hat. I liked the color of Tessy tunic dress but I thought she looked too old for such a dress.

Does anyone know if Prince Felix's girlfriend attended the wedding? I know she attended Felix's cousin, Archduke Imre's wedding.
