Good way to honor her husband. If that's the reason for the style and color of her dress then there's not much I can say about it.

This is off the wall but I think it is her take (as she is escorting Princess Beatrix) of "white tie". Black dress/white tie.

I think Mabel's gown is the epitomy of couture. She does love her bows. She looks fab to me.

This dress for me is just not pretty. I wish she would not have worn black on her brother-in-laws big day. And the fascinator (or dead bird I can't decide which), is not good. Bravo to her for even coming and being away from Friso for several days, that I can say I love.

It just gives the impression she is in mourning for her husband, which is confusing because he's not dead yet. Then you compound the situation with the dress she wore for Beatrix's dinner (red), and I'm really confused!
Maybe she just tried to stay understated with her fashion in order not to take away the attention from the 3 most important people of the day (Beatrix,W-A & Maxima) and the meaning and importance of the event.
If she had worn a festive,big gown fo the investiture,EVERYONE would have talked about her and why she wears colour when her husband is in such a sorry state!

Trouble is that black-and-white is a statement in itself... she could have worn beige or something..
But keep in mind that I'm not a Mabel-fan..

Despite that huge bow at the waist, this is a pretty, soft look for Mabel and I like how her hair is styled.

I like this last white and pink dress. It looks very fresh to me. I liked how she resorted to bows to keep friso present. Very sweet. Mabel has really grown on me, and it seems, on the rest of th RF.

I love her dress tonight. She looks radiant, which is a triumph considering her emotional state right now. Well done, Mabel!

Yes, hear hear! I looked at this picture of the pink dress and I was not sure which of the princesses it was, until I remembered it was Mabel, and I too thought it wonderful that she looks this radiant considering the hardships she has been through. A beautiful woman! And it is good that she is incorporated into the family like this. What a sweet though sad story, may the sweetness continue!

I think I've figured out Mabel's problem.

There's a well-known quote by Coco Chanel- "before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off."

That's Mabel's problem- she has these lovely outfits and then makes one bad decision and messes them up. For example, at Victoria's wedding she had a nice princessy dress but made a decision to tear off part of the skirt and wear pants, or the inauguration ceremony where she had a simple black dress and then tied that pillowcase around her arm.


Of course there is an exception to every rule- she looked fantastic in the pink and white during the water pageant! Classic yet still fashion-forward and interesting enough to be Mabel.

The flotilla outfit is the only one that hit the bar for me. First, with the red outfit Mabel presented a very bad copy of Maxima's dress, with an awful top design / wearing no bra / looking cheap & saggy.

Apart from the deeper meaning from the black & white dress, its one of the ugliest I've ever seen, and Mabel has worn a lot of ugly things (the trouser-dress comes to my mind), but this one is easily up there. At first I thought she broke her arm and had it in a cast.
