I think the fur would have been a better idea if, on Marie, it had not been a wrap but a coat something she didn't have to hold. I all looked too cluttered the evening bag the fur both hand in view holding the bag, and the husband she was a balancing act there. IMO

I wonder she is ashamed by her growing belly? I don't think she worn ANYTHING to show it off yet, and we could see in the "courtseeing" photos, that she does have one. :-D

I liked the gown, but the shoes were not very pretty. They looked like they were made of plastic, and the style was clunky. Perhaps she chose them because of the cold weather, or swollen feet due to her pregnancy? Either way, at least they were mostly covered by the dress.

I completely agree, it all looks too messy. The colour of her dress is lovely as is her tiara and makeup. But withall the things she had to hold, it dosen't look 'polished 'enough .

She never quite looks 'polished' enough. She always just 'misses the mark'. As for all she had to hold, she is Always grabbing onto Joachim in some form or another. Perhaps now she has a good excuse to do so as she is pregnant, but I don't remember seeing other HRH's constantly hanging onto their husbands quite like Marie. It's as if she's afraid he'll get away!

I personally dont have a problem at all with the stole, it looks fine to me.
I agree.

About the stole I love that natural colour against the blue dress. It gives a softness no other colour can provide. All in all - she was simply stunningly beautiful .

Have a look at some of Mette-Marit photos where she's grabbing Haakon's hand/arm as though she's about to go into a panic attack. She's been hanging on to him in one way or another ever since their wedding day. The difference is that Marie who is so much shorter and petite than Mette-Marit (who is approximately the same height as Haakon) looks like she is being dragged along by Joachim who is much taller than her.

Being thrust into the royal limelight would be quite intimidating, I imagine. They've only been married less than a year. I'd like to think that as Princess Marie becomes more and more comfortable being a royal, we'll see her stand more apart from her husband. All those flashing cameras, having to walk in a gown on high heels, the possibility of a trip-up... all these would make ME hold on to my husband if it were me.

Completely agree...how daunting must it be turning up to an event, with camera flashes going off and knowing that your every move will be in the public domain in a matter of hours...personally I would feel very awkward. By holding on to Joachim at least she's doing something..I used to get the same impression from Letizia in the early photo shoots with Leonor - she used be forever pulling at her, but I put it down to the need to be doing something rather than just standing there in front of the cameras. I guess like you say it's a matter of developing confidence.

Yes, she's got the looks --- she just needs expert guidance and maybe, a bigger clothing allowance. Her clothes tend to look cheaply made and fit very poorly.

Some members get upset when she is compared to Mary, but look how immaculate and wonderful Mary always seems to look.

Mandy I completely agree with you regarding MM but it didn't seem the place to say it here on this thread thought I would get a telling off from mods and that is worse [MM I mean] as she will be Queen. It still doesn't help ol' Marie in he current situation. She needs to be highly polished look at the Queen's sister their is still expectations of her and she is terrific. Yes born into it but none the less standards have been set and need to be maintained and that is that.

As I said before in a previous post, and I will say it again. Marie is just not 'polished', she 'misses the mark, and the spark', that '"certain something", the "elegance" that sets a HRH apart from All others! It is almost beyond my ability to put into words and I just do not know how else to explain it. She just doesn't have IT. Hopefully she will get IT with time but I really think not. Hopefully, I am totally Wrong!!!!

to be honest, i thought the same of mette marit and mary, and look at them now! they really got that "extra something". i think the same will happen with marie. i also think she is much more low-key than her sister-in-law and her role will also be more low-key, therefore the difference in the attitudes.

I agree with Carlota. Marie has made statements before where she has said that she is not overly concerned with fashion. I love her casual style. She (IMO) looks best when she is dressed casually. I think that as time goes by, her formal appearances will improve. She's just starting out, and is getting used to the royal life. Also, she is pregnant, so she's probably still trying to figure out what she can wear comfortably, and what she can't. I like Marie, and I am looking forward to seeing how her style evolves (or doesn't).

Agree that Marie looked very regal from the neck up. She is certainly a beautiful woman, as is Mary. Problem for Marie starts with the low neckline,continues with oversized fur and end with the somewhat clunky looking, not gala, shoes. A color match is not enough for such an event in my opinion.

She and Joachim do make a striking couple and I like the way he escorts her, not leaving her to her own devices going up stairs, etc., in a long gown.

While Mary's look was more flawless, there are issues with the hem and seam of the skirt. They look pulled and badly pressed, not at all regal.

It would be nice to see Frederick offering his arm to his wife now and again.
