Not a fan either. Lace seems to give off a very 'matronly' look. Mary and Kate, who are two beautiful woman, tends to aged more when they're wearing lace dresses.

I think the lace itself is fine. I think the fit of the dress from the waist up doesn't suit her though.

Sorry, but she is not overdressed, she is dressed in a pretty summerly dress, like all other women and men in black suits. And it is certainly not a summer party, but an official formal dinner during the Danish Crown Prince's official visit Mary is dressed exactly as she usually is when attending the official dinners during the Crown Prince's couple's official business visits.

The dress is pretty enough, but I will sure be glad when the all lace dress trend is over.

Disappointing evening for both ladies for me

The lace is matronly. And the top isn't very flattering

At least if she had some color to it, would seem a bit fresher. I hope we move past this lace dress craze soon.

I'm also one of those who is really glad when this lace dress craze moves on. Lace looks good on windows, not on people. Or the lace has to be very special and beautifully done.
That aside, I'm glad that Mary changed her hairstyle for the evening and she looked very lovely.

I like the dress but it seems to formal for an evening summery outside party.

I would've loved to see something more lighter in fabric. Nevertheless, Mary looked lovely!

It wasn't "an evening summery outside party"
It was an official dinner.

I'm on the fence with this dress. Mary herself looks nice (as usual), but there's something about the dress that seems a bit heavy.

A really strange choice to a dinner on a summer evening (although it was raining) in the end of a friendly and lovely visit. The colours are boring and make the dress look heavy. On the other hand, it would go on a beach without shoes.

Doesnt work for me at all. Not a good look, something that Kate Cambridge might wear.
