Very matronly.

Well, she is still mourning. So what would you expect her during such a phase? IMHO this dress is perfectly acceptable given the current circumstances.

I love the color, but the style and cut of the dress are absolutely horrid. Stephanie appears to be naturally slim, and this dress simply hangs off of her. It reminds me of something one would wear around the house, or to sleep.

From reading about Stephanie's life and looking at photos, it sounds like she spent her childhood and adolescence almost sequestered in an ancient castle with parents who were old enough to have been her grand parents. There are also several nuns and at least one priest in the family.

So under those circumstances it doesn't sound like the poor girl was able to develop great fashion sense. That said, I hope she learns fast because most of what she has worn publically since her engagement to the HGD has not been very flattering to say the least. The colour of that hunter green dress is superb, her hair is a beautiful warm honey blonde and her face is radiantly pretty.

But that is not a dress that should be worn by a young, pretty woman with a nice figure...unless she is pregnant.

After Oct20th, she will have almost unlimited $$ to spend on her wardrobe. All that's missing is a reputable stylist. For Stephanie's sake I hope she is open to advice.

That certainly is a sack of a dress Stephanie is wearing in the latest photo from the palace. It's a great color for her, and she looks beautiful until you see the lower part of the sack. But at least we didn't have to look at her wearing too-high heels again. I suspect she doesn't care a lot about fashion, but thinks she must get used to heels to be in sync with fashion. As others say, she will learn, but if she doesn't it won't matter if she has love. Hooray for love!

Mariel, from the day the engagement was announced Guillaume has seemed to treat his fiancee like some exotic hothouse flower that needs nurturing and protecting. As reserved and shy as he is, it's very sweet to see him come out of his shell the way he has.

No, it's not Guillaume's opinion of her I am thinking of. He is quite besotted it seems.

Stephanie will be representing Luxembourg as wife of the Heir. She cannot and should not embarrass her new country...not when she has the means to look elegant and presentable at her fingertips. Fashion can be learned. She has her fiancee's very elegant Aunt Sybilla, as well as her soon-to-be mother-in-law. Money will not be an issue at all.

If she stumbles in a major way fashion wise after her wedding, the press and public will not be kind. She seems a sweet young woman eager to do her best and I'd hate to see her humiliated by Karl Lagerfeld or someone else.

Its a lovely shade on her and she wears that color well. Darker seems to suit her way better than bright/pale/light colors. The dress is accessorized nicely with that necklace. The only thing that is missing with this dress is a nice belt for it not too look like a sack.

Do you want her to be dressed by Natan such as Maxima, Mathilde, Claire ?
She has her own personality and another background as Kate , Mary , Letitzia . We have to respect this.

Unfortunately she already dresses in Natan .

She has been seen in his outfits for example, the red layered dress with a matching bolero (official engagement photo) and this outfit is also by Natan.

maria-olivia I could not agree with you more. If the soon-to-be HGD Stephanie signs on with Natan as her official couturier she is going to be on her way to becoming recognized as the frumpiest of all the current CP's.

And that would be a crying shame because she will at only 28 years of age be the youngest of all the Crown Princesses.

My fervent hope is that Marc Jacobs or Karl Lagerfeld/Chanel will offer her some guidance, and become for her what Armani was to Charlene Wittstock when she first landed in Monaco in 2005/2006.

Remembering some of her very early outfits still sends a chill up my spine.

October 3, 2012 - Grand Duchess and Stephanie attended a concert. Grand duchess in a black suit and Stephanie in a lovely blue dress. Stephanie actually looks good in that shade, the cut is flattering and hair open suits her much better than pulled up. The silver heels are a bit to silvery for the dress IMO. Nevertheless this is her best look so far.

Maria Teresa's black suit looks a bit too sombre for me, although the addition of pink is a nice touch.

Stephanie looks gorgeous! I absolutely love the blue dress.
It's in a great style and colour, looks flattering on her and is complemented by well-chosen accessories.

Stephanie looks fantastic! That shade of blue is gorgeous. The outfit is very classic and elegant. One of her best looks so far.

You're spot on; the black suit is rather dreary and sombre for a concert. Stephanie looks fabulous. I love the dress. Another (soon-to-be) royal lady who looks great in blue.

I don't like at all Srephanie's style. It seems to be a little bit older for her age.

I'm not a fan of Stephanie's style either.

I love the color of her dress, but the style is just okay. I think the gold shoes ruin the look. I hope to see some new hairstyles on her soon.
