I think this gown does not flutter Caroline. Especially the sleeves are awful

I think she looks fabulous! The dress fits the theme, has that Caroline wackiness that I like and her hair and make up look great.

The patterns meet the theme that is the only compliment I can give

The sleeves, the unflattering bag like quality, the bizarre neck (choker or collar) she looks like a dressing room exploded on her.

Runway look? Sorry id call it a run away look....run fast and far away

That was my first thought too. The dress is... not my cup of tea, though, having said that; Caroline still looks good.

lol , lately i don't understand what happened to chanel i read a pit and watched couple of movies about gabrielle chanel and how she was revolutionary by designing wearable clothes that flatter women's figures but now her brand is the opposite of that and sadly lately princess caroline has been karl lagerfeld's guinea pig.

I wonder if she is obliged to wear whatever KArl Langerfeld gives her.

Yeah I'm beginning to think that too ,this outfit looks like its a left over outfit from the Monte Carlo International Circus Festival ,one of the worst ever.

I find this dress a waste of time, fabric, energy and I can continue
Caroline does not need this kind of attention at all I do not know why Karl does not respect that if he is her friend. Well I guess this is about the brand etc.


I hate when men make dresses for women in this way, my very personal opinion of course.
Too excessive for a person who does not need to show herself as that.

Caroline does love to push the fashion envelope, and has a great sense of humor about it. I like this look, in that spirit. Cannot imagine anyone else in the universe pulling that off, though. And may I say, her makeup, hair, face and demeanor are amazing.

I like the top part, but i feel the ruffles-especially around the sleeves are a bit much

Caroline doesn't dress like this on other occasions - I think she treats the occasion almost like a Fancy Dress party and has fun going to town with the theme. I don't think she's under Karl Lagerfeld's "malign influence" - if she didn't want to wear it she wouldn't. I'm sure she had input as well given their very close friendship.

So I don't think it's a dress for any other occasion but I think for this night it works and she has fun with it. Interesting to see if it can be repurposed in any way.

I hope there wasn't soup with those sleeves, more for the people sitting on either side of her...

Princess Caroline looked absolutely cute & wonderful. The dress fit the theme, and she's at an age that she can do whatever the he(double ll) she wants, especially as she's always had the confidence. Confidence in & of itself is a glorious thing to see, like a moth to a flame...

Interesting - thanks. Maybe Caroline's version was designed with flash colour photography in mind.

They made an exact replica but with more patterns and fluff, an excellent idea.

The overkill fits with the theme of the Wiener Secession, the pattern of the top of the dress reminds of the pattern used for this program book: picture

The flower motifs on the skirt reminds of the building of the Seccession in Vienna: picture.

So The Princess of Hannover remained wonderfully close to the theme of the event, which was displayed behind her anyway: picture
