I agree the black and white outfit is very elegant I don't really like the bag she's carrying,though(I don't like this kind of bags,generally)

I also agree that the black and white outfit is very smart-looking and looks great on her! Unfortunately, the bag is large and isn't meant to be worn over the shoulder; so it "scrunches" up her jacket making it appear ill-fitting. Too bad she didn't carry a smaller bag or simply carried this one in her hand.

Or a small beautiful all-time-classic clutch!

There's no question that she looks relaxed and happy. Her face is softer, fuller. Prince Joachim seems to be beaming - nice to see that he doesn't look strained.

The dark stockings, heavy looking platform shoes, in my opinion, work against her personal soft look. I personally don't care for the platform shoes, no matter who wears them. I think they look klunky and detract from a classic look. I know that a few royals have opted for them due to their stature (Princess Margaret, Letizia of Spain, and now Marie) - but I still don't like the look. I also believe that exaggerated spike heels don't look particularly good - in my opinion, the look is too forced. Classic closed toe shoes are better suited for royals,I think. It's amuch more elegant look.

I've got now clue how old you are but with younger people in their teens, twenties and begin thirties those kind of clothes are the mode. It's great to wear, nothing wrong with it and you can't go wrong.

I Was too harsh about my comment re: her sweater for which I apologize! She did look cute with her tummy showing off her pregnancy! However I will stick my guns re: her dress revealing too much. Not approriate for anyone to have to show that much whatever one's age. And... speaking of my age, what does it have to do with this topic we are discussing??

Bags like this with two thick straps are too bulky to wear comfortably on the shoulder and it does bunch up the jacket. A thin envelope style or "Baguette" style of bag with one strap would have been lovely or just carry this bag by its straps.

Marie seems to love clothes made out of very flimsy fabrics which can have a tendency to look cheap and clingy.
The blue/violet dress is a perfect example.
Marie loves low-cut tops and that has got to stop. In private, OK but not at official events.
She tends to prefer to dress in a very casual, sportswear kind of wear and the DRF seems to like to pull out all of the stops dressing for public events so she always looks under-dressed. She needs to step it up a lot - which is where a good stylist could help!

I loved this dress:

Aside from her casual clothes, this was my favorite look for Marie since the wedding. I think she looks very elegant and sweet in this dress.

I don't know. I still think she misses "it". I don't care for her flesh-colored stockings, much less her platform shoes. Maybe if the skirt was abit longer.... It just doesn't look right to me. Sorry, but she still needs a stylist, IMO.

I agree udyusa she misses "it" and often. I have liked only one outfit the creamy fur suit in Russia... for the rest all just mean well but don't come off. She needs help and fast. IMO

It is very cute and feminine dress that P.Marie is wearing. She looks very happy BTW.

Did I miss something? The dress is blue - not black - and I don't think it's satin. Marie's shoes are once again the platform heavy style which do not match the style of the dress at all. She needs to learn about stocking colors as well. Perhaps a taupe color or grey tone would improve things.

She did look terrific in the brown dress, brown boots, and brown stockings she wore for the ballet. She's fine with browns. The bag was way over the top for the rest of the outfit - it made her look as though she was ready for a sleep over after the ballet. She is a small woman and needs to think about proportion.

Save the platform shoes for slacks MAYBE. At least they're pretty well hidden with slacks. A heavy heel with a cocktail type dress is not a match.

She'll get it, I think.

Her hairdo was not great at this embassy function, but the hair is getting sorted out now and she looks more put together. She is still a pretty woman, and that smile makes up for a few shortcomings.

It must be hard for her to have to make so many adjustments at once, the language, the new country, duties, the pregnancy, not to mention getting used to married life, and a very public one at that.

There is a lot on her plate now. If she doesn't have a stylist, or intentions of getting one, I think it would be helpful if she sought out pictures, even magazines to see how other royals do it (not limiting herself to the Danish royals). Even the internet could help her. She's a modern woman who knows how to obtain information.

Your age can influence your opinion on somebody's style. And when you were a galagown, are you showning too much?(Which is something she has to do quite some times) I think a whole lot more, and it still wouldn't look slutty.. She doesn't has to dress like a nun. She's young, pretty and happy with the way she looks. She can show that and it's not innapropiate and she is not showing too much.
It's the way you wear it and she does it allright.

My age has never influenced my opinion on someone's fashion sense or style. I have always relied on my common sense and my eyes! "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" and I see nothing beautiful about one's bosoms popping out. I have No objections to showing cleavage when wearing a well-designed dress or gala gown but have a little restraint. Just IMHO, of course! Can we just agree to disagree? :)

I agree with udyusa. No need to show what you have when attending a public function. She may be young, but restraint is more refined.
