I like the shoes. I think if she took the tights out and wore different shoes and put her hair up and lost the glasses it would have looked good. But this look is a disaster.

Th trousers are funny, but also not appropriate in a church, IMO.

She looks like she has a shawl with her, I hope she covered up before entering the cathedral.

This is bad - even for Mabel.

Very BAD! From the color of the trousers it looks like she has jeans on. She looks terrible.

That is shocking even for Mabel.
The colours are beautiful, but in a dress.

I'm shocked too. Too bad, cause the top part is beautiful - could be a beautiful gown. She would just need to cover her shoulders with a shawl during the ceremony and that's it... Thumbs down!

I wonder what Queen Beatrix, Maxima, WA, Laurentien, Johan-Friso and Constantine think about this? Did they say anything to her? This outfit is just terrible. A disgrace to the House of Orange and disrespectful to the Bernadotte/Westling families.

I have been thinking about this all day, and in addition to this outfit being just plain AWFUL. I, for one also find it very disrespectful.

This is a very formal Royal wedding....Victoria and Daniel (and Sweden's as well) special day and she wears this outfit?! Maybe I am being a tad bit sensitive but I find it insulting...you think Victoria's wedding is a joke? I don't know if she is trying to stand out apart from the crowd or making some type of fashion statement....this wasn't the place to do it. Didn't people put a little effort into HER wedding?

The fact that she wore trousers was not disrespectful. Remember the first one ever to wear trousers at a royal wedding was 34 years ago today by Carmen grandaughter of Franco. It made big waves back then. It was Victoria's parents. However that peekaboo tulle concoction leaves me.....speechless.........

But if you are going to wear trousers...then wear trousers. Don't do what she did. Trousers, strapless top and tons of tulle.

I don't think that is appropriate for a formal Royal event (but that is certainly my opinion) but I think this was about standing out and making a fashion statement at Somebody's else's moment.

Inappropriate and disrespectful to the House of Orange too. I agree with Zonk here. What does she think? That the wedding of a European CP is just like a celebrity/fashion party?! Heaven help us!

I am not siding with Mabel whose sense of taste is almost non existent. The whole outfit was bizzare, I just mentioned the issue of the trousers.
However as I was watching the guests at the dinner table there are so many faux pas fashionwise, one could fill a book. All that cupcake effect of bosoms and arms and upper backsides pouring over the strapless gowns are a sight for sore eyes...Still...This is Mabel's thread...At least her top was impeccable..

I get that Mabel is fashion risk taker. I, personally, am a conservative dresser...that's her and thats me (of course, I don't have her budget either but thats ANOTHER THREAD!).

Sometimes I get and appreciate her fashion savvy (not the wedding bows though) and sometimes I don't. This is one of those times.

As I said, I don't think this was the event to make a fashion statement. To me it reeks of Look at me!

And yes, I agree about the tons of fashion faux pas that are running around...but you didn't notice it at first right? You noticed this.

I understood your point, Odette. We don't disagree here. And you're so right: so many faux pas indeed! Mabel's stood out a bit more.

Her outfit is an embarrasment to the House of Orange, the Queen, the Netherlands and an insult to Sweden, the Bernadotte/Westling families and to Victoria and Daniel.

Whatever statement she was trying to make today was the wrong day. Even her husband looked miffed.
