o my God, what a mess the styling of the countess - and a cross on the necklace. it is better to keep the mouth shut about that stylish desaster. the countess is a strong and clever woman - no more comment.

Yes, those shoes are horrid with that dress.

Thank goodness my eyes are on the Countess's beautiful son Nikolai rather than her unattractive and inappropriate shoe wear.

She looks too young to have a grown son.

Nonetheless, it is prince Joachim who is the younger parent (48, so not that young either); the countess celebrated her 53th birthday 2 months ago...

As much as I've always been fond of Countess Alexandra I must say that her fabulous sense of style as a Princess hasn't made the transition to a "mere" Countess very well.

A definite miss for me. The shoes and dress are a mismatch.

Since her break up for her 2nd husband, her dress sense has been on the decline. One just needs to remember Felix's confirmation

I am sorry to agree. I found her one of the most consistently stylish women during her brief time as a Royal spouse, but after she was "liberated" from the constraints of dressing like a Royal she seems to have gone a bit off the rails.

Although still quite beautiful, she is not a 25 year old anymore but appears determined to dress like one for as long as possible.

From what I remember Alexandra was very elegant when married to Joachim. Stylish and appropriate.

Given how different her personal style has turned out to be post royal life I will say I appreciate that she took dressing for her position seriously when she was a royal. Alexandra easily matched Mary's high level of professionalism as part of the DRF and I think it's sometimes forgotten what a great asset she was for them.

I like her dress here and think it calls for eye catching shoes or accessories. But those particular shoes are eye catching in all the wrong ways.

We need to remind that Alexandra is no member of the Royal House anymore and is, because of that, not subjected to what we expect from royal ladies. Essentially Alexandra has all freedom to dress as she likes. Those shoes would not have been my choice, but she looks neat and nice.

The dress is ok but those are one pair of hideous looking shoes,her son is very tall so maybe she was adding a bit of height!

I like the dress but think it is too short. The shoes are just awful, she needs to wear those with a maxi dress or maybe throw them away.

Every woman needs to have at least one pair of fabulous and foolish shoes which others may not like.

I agree..a very stylish princess. She appears to me to be trying too hard to be young and it doesn't work.
