Here is a news clip from TV2. I had a chance to see the dress, semi-full length, and well... I hate it. Why? It drowns her. Mary is a small woman (height wise), and those types of dresses (with exaggerated, light textured fabrics etc, etc) would suit one who is at least 5'10" and up. Anyone shorter than that, even with heels, ... ahhh no. By the way, this is simply my opinion so don't freak out.

I think Marys hair looks beautiful. Classic and elegant. So hard to believe that she was not born into this life. She is such a natural.

I'm not so fussed on the dress either, although her hair, makeup and jewells are gorgeous as usual. At least she wears a variety of clothing, not all of a similar style.

I won't freak out, I promise! (At least not until I've seen a full view of the dress for myself) It's frustrating that the photographers couldn't get a full view of her in the gown. Love the hair, the eye make-up a bit over done (IMO), but all in all lovely as always! I'm sure her appearance and warmth made a favorable impression on her hosts.

I really want to see more of this dress! Hopefully there'll be more (and bigger) pictures soon! Until then, I cant judge it.

I thought Mary's dress was very pretty & very different for her, im not too sure about the hair do with that dress, it seems abit too much. Finally Frederik smiling & not looking bored at an official event.

now that we can see her face, i think not only her hair but also her makeup is stunning. Remember, it is an evening event and that calls for a touch more glamour. Night time light is so different to the daytime. The overall look is glamour and sophistication.

I think that Mary's dress was something different and beautiful in that own way. It's good that Mary is wearing different styles and it's suits her. I think that something more formal hadn't been so good but this dress seems for me like fresh breath or something like that

Thank you the extra pictures Paty! Finally, a nice view of Mary's gown - and I can't say I'm too impressed by it. The skirt is nice, the top really let's it down though.

I'm going out on a limb, I really like the dress! I know, surprising but true. It is quite ethereal. I love how floaty it is.

I also love the photo of Fred looking at the artwork.

I think I must have been channelling you over on the Mary nighttime fashion thread.

But I agree, I too also love the photo of Fred looking at the artwork.

Thank you Paty for the wonderful pictures. Unfortunately I found something I really hate in her evening ensemble. The shoes! Those nasty, pointy, elongated monstrosities! The look like some deadly weapons. Ugh.

She was born in Jerusalem.

i loved mary's dress! i thought it looked superb (although as GT said, maybe a bit too much for a petite person) and the make up was perfect. it really highlighted mary's eye colour.
