The list will be extended as more information becomes available.

Sorry biboquinhas, but that sounds rather nonsensical to my ears. Her outfit has nothing to do with being 'fashion addicted'. You may like it or not, that's up to you. But like any other female guest invited, Mary dressed up and tried to look nice. Talking about being fashion addicted is rubbish imo.

The Claridges is the ££££££ place to stay. Very trendy, michelin star cook Gordon Ramsay - very famous in the UK for his cooking shows and his vibrant personality - has his one-star restaurant at this hotel. Those posters who have heard of Gordon Ramsay before can imagine that it would be a funny encounter if he and Maxima had actually met in his restaurant

Thank you to everyone who has posted pictures! Everyone looked fabulous and it was nice to see so much effort made for Charles official 'do'.

Claridges restaurants offer a variety of chefs beside Ramsey, thank goodness.

Prince Charles chose a formal uniform but a relaxed pose for the official portrait to mark his 60th birthday.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7727856.stm

Prince Charles, one of the longest serving heirs to the throne, celebrates his 60th birthday on Friday as a poll showed more people would now prefer him, rather than his son William, to succeed the Queen.

Actually, to my eye the proportions seem quite right. It's a great (airy, as is mean to be) fit, and looks lovely on her.

The only eligible reference to 'goth' would be the lacework on the blouse (which is a stunning piece as it is). The rest of the ensemble is anything but. It is MC's dress which could be considered 'goth', in comparison to Mary's.

If you look good in black, where it I think. And as it just so happens, Mary looks splendid in black...though of course we all disagree on many a variety of opinions.

With all due respect: you can't be serious!
IMO this is an insult to the intelligence of CP Mary! I doubt that she dressed up for the event at BP with the intent of turning heads! By the way, we don't even know if her dress was black, do we? The lacy top could be midnight blue for all I know!

Except Gordon Ramsay isn 't cheffing at Claridge's very often! Rumour has it that he is busy doing TV shows and inspecting all his restaurants!

Mary looks terrible because she wanted to be in her best fashion choice, sometimes she must be carreful because too mucht fashion addicted is not good! Why Marie Chantal was sitting in the back side of the car and her husband at the front???Why they were not sitting together???
Prince Pavlos was sitting by Marie Chantal side. Prince Nicolaus was the one who was sitting at the front.

O.K it was my mistake!
As for Mary's clothes I just think that she tries a lot to be into fashion, she achieve that most of the time, of course, I love the way she dresses, but sometimes I just hope that she could dress more like a Royal and not like a fashion celebrity that is all!

As far as I could see in those few photos, P. Mathilde was the best, very well dressed for the occasion, very chic, classic and beautiful, followed by CP Maxima, who looked stunned but a bit too flashy...

Camilla looked very very nice in pale pink!

CPs Mary and Marie Chantal were the worst... Mary's skirt simply didn't match with the upper shirt (although her earings looks FAB!) and Marie Chantal let me speechless with her Madona hair style (OMG!!!).

I agree Maxima looked too flashy although I liked the dress I don't think it was suitable for this occassion- a bit like she wanted all to know she was there a bit like a celebrity.

Well yes, dear Lucien. But your plea would have been more effective if you hadn't indulged in the fashion critique yourself!
Now, back to the party...
