The nailpolish and the showing bra are NO GO imo. The gown looks beautiful on her, but she should know better than to wear the same colour all the times. I think she needs a better stylist!

i don't like shoulder-straps, but the colour suits her, and the cut of the dress is perfect for her pregnancy

I don't really like purple but the color seems to be a popular color for the Danish Princess's. I think Marie looked nice, dress is ok but the tiara makes up for any shortcoming on the dresses part. IMO

Nail polish is tacky I agree but the dress looks beautiful and the way it falls is nice. the color suits Marie and the embroidery is not too much which just gives some shimmer to the top part of the dress. The color is really nice IMO.

Marie just never seems to get it right. A shame really. The only thing beautiful about this outfit is the Tiara. Even with that said, her hair doesn't do it justice.

I think Marie is the forums' favourite fashion pinata. I find her whole outfit beautiful and the nail polish is very fashionable and matches perfectly with the outfit.
It seems that Marie favours some colours and she prefers to dress in darker shades that match her complexion. For a lady two months away from giving birth she is mighty glamourous. Go Marie!

Princess Marie's outfit was rather usual: deep decollete paired with her favourite purple colour. However, she should avoid exposing her lingerie.

The lingerie showing could be a gusset sewn in at the last minute to enlarge that very tight fitting, though gathered, bodice. It looks as though the seam had to be rippped open, there was no matching material, so black was used. The effect is awful, just like the sleeves on the trench coat, not royal looking at all.

Enough has been said about the dark nails, so I won't add too much. Getting a manicure is one thing, but painting the nails to go with such a dark outfil is the least classic way to go. Poor, Marie, does she not know how to say no to a bad idea, or is it she who initiates these ideas?

I prefer her long hair done up in giant curls, such as her wedding day and the new year's event. Perhaps there wasn't enough time to get around to that since there were obvious alterations to the dress that had to be taken care of.

The big purse she carried was out of proportion to her size. It looked like she was trying to hide the pregnancy (senseless after wearing the super revealing dinner dress). She would have been fine with a smaller purse, even the one from the new year's gala (though I think it had a pink knob for a closure - maybe she rejected it for that reason). The one she ended up with was way too big for an evening bag for a short lady. I'm confident she'll improve after the baby.

Both the queen and her sister looked like true royals. Simplicity, exquisite fabric, polished look. Mary was trying too hard with the purple satin fabric wrapped around her all over the place. Not terribly refined either, in my opinion.

Marie's dress is nice. I know she really wears too much purple, but still I like her last dress. Hairdo was nice too, going very well with her tiara. Two no-no's: black lingerie showing trough the dress and nail polish color.

Marie could get away with wearing other colors: cream, soft gold, bronze, taupe - she needs to get way from the purple -

Perhaps ... Princess Marie is too fond of the purple because the latter is considered as regal and historically associated with royal wear.

True royals would never think of painting their nails purple as well, royal color or not. If she wanted to appear royal, she overdid that royal color.

Once again, where was Joachim? Didn't he see this mistake?

Obviously not. But why would he have to? She should know better by now! Just an aside, but has anyone else noticed just how thin and gaunt Joachim looks lately??

I am not a fan of most of Marie's fashion choices, but I have to say that some of the comments seem a bit harsh. Her dress isn't the greatest, but it's not the most unflattering thing that I've seen her wear. My biggest problem with it is that it looks like her lingerie is peeking out from underneath.

I've never been a big fan of nail polish and I think that matching it to your clothes is a big no-no. I'm more of a manicure (french if you like) kind of girl. But, in Marie's defense I have seen many other royal ladies wearing nail polish from time to time including Mette-Marit and Maxima for example and I didn't think that it was that bizarre.

I'm very tired of seeing her in purple or shades of purple, but it's not as if Marie looks like someone who was dragged in off of the streets. She can always do better, but for me this wasn't terrible.

I could imagine that the gown was designed to be worn with a certain size of a baby belly,
perhaps with a tolerance for stretching further, but then the gown didn't work like planned,
it stretched a little bit too much, thus the show of the lingerie?

Anyway, I like her apperance a lot! She's radiant and that's more important than having every
tiny little detail in perfect order.

Not many women so pregnant like Marie would go for soft colors, it would just make them look biggger therefore I do understand why many go for dark colors. Maybe when she has had her baby, we will see her in lighter shades.

I think lighter colors would was Marie out. As for her dress, I think she looks nice. She was very beautiful. The black material peeking out does not bother me. I don't think it was lingerie. I think it may have been a body stocking that some pregnant women wear when they get further along in term. Sometimes it happens. I don't think it's a major incident or tacky. Just an accident. The purple polish was not my favorite, but fits with her age.

Whether it was gusset or lingerie, or body stocking, they are all tacky, especially for a formal evening. The dress is a great colour and shape otherwise. IMO, if Marie has the guts to wear the strappy gown, she should have skipped the modesty coverings underneath. Just go for it!

Whatever Marie wears is mosty acceptable (at least to me) since she always looks happy and smiles a lot. A lot of ladies watch every little detail and their outfits may look perfect on a manequin or hanging in a closet, but are either pouty or look like they are bored and the whole appearance is miserable.
Marie made some mistakes but overall she has her own style and always looks radiant and happy to be wherever she finds herself to be. That is what class is all about.
