She looks elegant and correct, what I would expect from her.
Her hair could use some help,I agree, only because it may look "fine" in real life, but she is not used to what photographs demand.
It must have been hard for her to attend a memorial concert.

She looks wonderful: fresh, classic, ethereal, really beautiful.

I love her look in the blue dress at the concert, and I think her hair is fine. The only thing I do not like are her shoes, and I think these shoes should be outlawed. I do not see how anyone can walk in such shoes. Now I may be ignorant; perhaps there are some very expensive shoes which a person can walk in, without damaging their feet, unlike the less expensive shoes average people wear. There may be a secret formula for being able to walk in such shoes. I believe, however, that these shoes are so extreme that I fear for her falling forward while wearing them. If she walks like a "horse", as some people say, maybe she's just taking care not to fall down.

When I was 16 I wore "toe shoes" with steel arches so I could run around on my toes at a sports pavilion at "half time" of a basketball game. I know that wonders can be done with construction. I still don't like it because Stephanie will have deformed feet later. My feet were not deformed completely because I quit wearing both toe shoes and high heels.

I'm with you Mariel1, I love the dress, but I hate those shoes! I think open-toe shoes look too old fashioned.

But the color of her dress is beautiful, and I think it's adorable the way Guillaume has tried to match his tie to what his fiancee is wearing.

The dress is lovely. Her makeup could use a bit of an amp-up; what she's doing probably suits in person, but it photographs very pale. But she looks lovely and composed, she's got such inborn class.

I agree about the shoes; they look uncomfortable and unattractive. I love Guillaume's attempt to match his tie to the color of Stephanie's dress. He gets major brownie points .

I don't think she should wear makeup more than this for now, I mean her mum has passed away last month!

Right, Royal Couturier, her mum just passed away, and anyway she has that Dresden China look which should not be overcome by much makeup.

As a couple, they do that often(try to match their clothes). I think it's adorably old-fashioned and sweet, and I love it.

I happen to agree about Stephanie's complexion. It is fair and flawless, but it photographs too pallid at times. She is probably wearing very light makeup for daytime(as she should) and I also agree with other posters that she might not be wearing much due to mourning for her late mother.

But for her wedding I hope she gets a skilled makeup person to show her how to play up her features for daytime.

Her make-up was always discreet I think, why would she change that ?

Well, all this talk about Stephanie style . . . . nobody in this photo looks good anyway.

rominet09, because in some photographs she appears too pale and almost homely to be quite honest.

And she is anything BUT homely. She might not be everyone's idea of beautiful but she has a very delicate, fine featured pretty face with a virtually flawless complexion. With the right grooming and cosmetics she would photograph better and show off her looks to best advantage.

I think she is lovely. She reminds me of the paintings I've seen depicting young noblewomen of the High Renaissance period.

Maybe she is happy with the way she looks. Why change it - he obviously loves her the way she is. As a previous poster said, she looks elegant and correct for the occasion. I am always surprised by the way that it is assumed that CPs et al must take an interest in fashion and "lead" the way. Why should they? Elegant and correct seems good to me.

She will be busy enough getting to grips with the (small p) politics that operate within all families, never mind royalty. That and learning how it all works. That's the priority. And she needs time to get over the loss of her mother and the stress of the wedding.

Hope she never reads some of the comments on here because it wouldn't help her confidence.

You are exactly right Mariel. Nothing that has been posted here has been mean or unkind...quite the opposite especially when you read some of the other blogs online.

I like Guillaume's fiancee...I think he made an excellent choice and that she is the personification of "class".

Making a suggestion about makeup can hardly be called "negativity".

I agree with you; having good make-up, or looking 'good' in the eyes of the masses really gets on my nerves. I don't wear make-up at all (don't know how to, and quite frankly, I'd rather sleep for extra twenty minutes than bother with eye shadow, and whatever else), and I get annoyed when people tell me that if I want to be noticed, I should change my hair, wear make-up, etc. And why? Not because I want to, but because it's what our society expects of a female. That's just wrong and disgusting. No wonder so many women have issues with confidence and self-esteem; being themselves is never quite good enough. I hope Stephanie listens to advice of those who know, accept and love her best, but most importantly, follow her own instincts. She can't go wrong there. Oh, and I'd rather look pale, and than be painted like a clown. Just saying .

New photos of the couple have been released today. To honor her mother Stephanie will wear her (mother's) engagement ring on her right hand during the wedding.

Stephanie looks lovely, especially in the blue and white wrap dress.

They both look so in love . Lovely ring on Stephanie, and she looks quite good in that shade of pumpkin orange. Don't care for the blue and white dress, however. Reminds me of a house coat.
