Yes, from the front it is OK - her shoulders and bust area look fine - BUT - the rest of the dress is fitting her like a sausage casing.
Skin-tight through the tummy area, the rear area and on her legs.
A pretty empire-style dress in the correct size would show off her shoulders and bust line but then fall gently around the rest of her body.
A tight sheath style dress looks like something a Hollywood starlet would wear to garner attention from the papparazzi.

Princess Marie attended a spring consumer fair in Tonder Denmark on 27 February 2009 with Prince Joachim:

I think that she looks very nice. She also wore this coat to Christmas Eve services in Denmark last December. Purple is one of her best colors.

Perhaps she found the happy medium with the dark purple top and black pants. I didn't care for the "sausage casing" look or the gray dress. There were elements of the gray dress that looked fine but I still did not like it that much. Today however, her outfit was just right.

She's due in May,Odette.I didn't notice what Joachim was wearing,I just think Marie was much more elegant with that purple coat than on the other occasions.

the purple swing coat is a great look for pregnant woman as it is very stylish but allows some freedom for Marie's expanding bump

Yeah, the purple jacket is quite old-fashioned and does nothing for her. Is it the same one she wore around Christmas time? I think she looks better in fitted things, but not as fitted as the previous sausage dress...she is so nice and pretty, I really hope with time she finds her style....

I like both dresses Marie had worn: gray and black. Some pregnant woman look perfect with tight/well fitting dresses. It is when they manage to be thin during pregnancy like Marie and only belly is showing. Gray dress is cute but it could be more fitting.
I am not crazy about purple coat though, color was nice(it is Marie's color, I think) but style I don't know...

Well, I may not be overly enamoured with either of the recent outfits, but I do think that overall her fashion sense is developing

Developing into what?? She still has no fashion sense and as I have said before, I am beginning to doubt that she will ever will. There's always hope, however...

Well, Pregnancy isnt the best days to be fashionable IMO. Yes you can but its not easy. So far, Marie's outfits arent too bad. She seems to be a person who isnt to into fashion.

Does Marie have a stylist?

IMO, Marie doesn't look that bad. It could be a lot worse!

Of course it could be worse.But it could also be a lot better and Marie has a great example,her sister-in-law,in her environment.I just hope that her fashion sense will be more inspired after she gives birth.Let's just say that she doesn't have many choices right now.

Marie wore the same purple coat to the Christmas service on the 24 December and to the opening of the fair in Toender.

Well, I'm entitled to my own opinion, but mentally replace the word "developing" with "evolving" if that makes you feel better...

Marmi, that's not fair. It's not a matter of my feeling better but rather just My opinion. I just do not see any "evolving" sense of her style/fashion! I keep waiting with baited breath, to see just a Bit of her beginning to look Royal, but so far I see no improvement at all. Surely she has had enought time to get together with a stylist to assist her....but perhaps she just isn't into clothes per se. Somehow I truly doubt that... but what do I know?
