I like the dress from waist down. I will prefer to have a simple veil without the lace edge. It's sort of messy with the upper bodice. Also do not like the 2 lace stripe on the shoulder, they are quite redundant with the lace edge veil.

Its a very pretty cut and shape for her. The lace is pretty but there was something off. I wasn't fond of where the lace was placed on the body of the dress, it just wasn't studied better as I thought it cut her. Moreover, the lace border on the arms where not flattering.

The veil was beautiful!

Make up, too boring, looked like her make up artist didn't show up.

Well, I would have to add Princess Elisabetta (Lilie?) to that select group of royal women whose entire wedding ensemble was a perfect personal hit and fit. By which I mean:
  1. The gown was not only beautiful but suited her personality.
  2. The veil fell beautifully and didn't obscure the gown or the tiara.
  3. The jewellery was a perfect compliment the overall "look". Her tiara and earrings were a perfect match in style.
  4. Her hair was perfect for both the tiara and the veil.
  5. Her makeup was perfectly natural. Enough to give her a warm blush but not "stage" paint.
  6. Like CP Victoria, she seemed to be uttlerly joyful and totally comfortable.
I also thought her shoes were pretty well thought out. No sore feet or blisters from teetering through her wedding day on 6 inch heels on "her" most important day.

I loved her wedding dress and she looked great. People elsewhere have said that they're fed up of Valentino's designs since lots of Princesses-to-be choose them for their weddings, but I never tire of seeing them. The spotty detailing on the top half of Lili's dress was very pretty.

I have a question: since this thread will be about the Belgian Princess's fashion and style, can we post about Elisabeth, Eleonore and Laetitia Maria here? I'm asking because they're still children and often get mentions in the 'Fashion for the Little Royals' thread.

Yes, Lili (not Lilie) is her nickname.

I like the color and I LOVE the emerald earrings. Are they part of her mother's large emerald parure?

It's the same dress Princess Madeleine wore to her daughter's christening last month.

Everyone who could afford I presume!!

A lovely dress in green, gorgeous. The negative point with this type of dress is that they exist in very cheep copies. Of course the quality of the fabric is not the same, but the effect is similar.
