I was so excited and surprised to see Guillaume and Stephanie! I liked her outfit, very elegant!

I hope she will make an appearance at National Day next month-

They did look good together but she needs to learn how to walk in high heels. She has the most ungainly walk I have seen in a long time, almost a John Wayne side to side amble, rather unfeminine.

Really lovely - she creates a very delicate impression, very elegant. Its also so nice that an engaged couple - clearly in love - were at the Christening. They sprinkled the charm of the soon-to-be-wed-fairy-dust!

Lovely Photo of Couple

LOL!! You are the second person who has said that! I was unable to see the live broadcast...only the photos! I noticed she was wearing platforms.

But I also remember her rather horsey, inelegant gait when she was coming down the steps at Berg last month...maybe Maria-Teresa has a lady-in-waiting who is willing to help her out?

At least she was dressed better than she was at Berg!

Tyger, they didn't seem as giddy today as they did last month. They looked sober and preoccupied. Didn't really smile or hold hands. But they are a lovely couple, no doubt.

If you go to the christening thread , I believe it is post 341 that has video link to the ceremony and you can see arrivals and departures. It is in the arrivals where you see Stephanie do her John Wayne walk.

Lovely though she may be I have this image of her walking down the aisle in cowboy boots and pistols on her hips,

Is Stephanie a tomboy?? Does she ride, play any sports? That might explain it.

Other than her impressive lineage and her academic prowess, we don't know much about her.

With a long wedding gown there is always the option for flat or low heel shoes if she's more comfortable that way.

With her heels she's almost the same height as Guillaume. I thought she looked great at the christening. It's a good time for her to meet the other royals is she hasn't already.

I wonder if her family is close to Mathilde's.

I viewed the pics of Countess Stéphanie de Lannoy at the christening in Stockholm and I must say, the couple look decidedly pleased together. However, I must comment (as is my nature) on what I consider the future princess' lèse-majesté, namely the length of the dress she wore. I sincerely believe that better attention should have been paid by her (and/or her royal handlers, if any) to the nature of the ceremony (a christening in a religious setting) and thus the appropriate attire she should wear. Being that she is a royal-to-be, I think the hem of her dress should have fell (at best) to her knees (not necessarily below, but NEVER above). I was pleased with the jacket and hat (though the clutch and shoes were a bit much and IMHO made her look quite awkward). I hope that I'm not being too harsh on the poor dear, who I'm sure will add just as much value to the stability of the monarchy in Luxembourg as her immediate predecessors (namely the incumbent Grand Duchess Maria Teresa and the late Grand Duchess Josephine-Charlotte). She just seems to be a bit "rough around the edges".

It was a short dress, but I wonder if you or anyone else saw the very tall young woman(someone identifed her as a model) with a sheer minidress that was so short it seemed to barely skim her hips??

And to make it worse you could see straight through this "dress" and realize that she was wearing thong underwear!

Stephanie looked like a novice nun in comparison.

I fully expect her to grow into her new position fashionwise...at least one can hope.

I expect she does not wear heels much. I hope she can find some shoes with reasonable heels, i.e. 2 to 3 inches, which is plenty. I do not care a lot for the 6 inch heels we see Catherine of Cambridge wearing, even though she is elegant wearing them. They are not healthy. Stephanie is charming and well educated and I see a happy marriage ahead. Guillome is so handsome, to me, partly because he looks like my late husband when he was young. They should have spectacular children if God blesses them with such.

Catherine has never worn any heels higher than 5", most of her shoes fall into the 3.5"-4.5" range which is the same range as the other Princesses like Mary
