Perfect dress for the occasion. As usual, the devil is in the detail and in this case an elegant dress with a perfect coiffure that somehow manages to look like and updo, and yet not. The look is finished by her refined jewellery, beautiful but simple earrings and bracelet.

Everything speaks of restrained elegance and of a lady who is not there to overshadow the event and what it is all about.

Perfect description, of a real Queen!

I like the silver dress I think.
It's not like some silver glitter dresses where they look like they're wearing tinfoil.
My only complaint about the blue dress, which I love the color of, and this one, are that they are too short. I love cocktail dresses, and there are some occasions when that is appropriate, but when I think Queens, I think ballgown.

Mathilde's latest outfit looks lovely on her, although there's something about the dress that's not quite right which I can't put my finger on.

Same here- and also with the blue dress. Both are lovely, but there's something wrong with both that I can't put my finger on.

She does look lovely but the [problems are that the dresses dont fit - that simple.

The silver one has problems around the armholes as they are pleating/creasing towards the bodice - that means they are either too tight or there is not enough room across the bust. The waistline is also not sitting correctly. Ergo - badly finished.

As for the blue one (which is a lovely dress) it is pulling across the bust causing creases.

Agree, terrible fit on the silver dress. The armholes gaping in the back instead of lying flat, from the front, you see there is no room for the bust, it is the wrong spot, as is the waist. A shame. Nice material.

I like the silver dress. Not too glittery, and she does look elegant. A nice haircut and earrings are my favorites. A real eye-catcher.

The dress is by Temperley London Spring 2014

It's a very nice dress and it looks really pretty on Mathilde. I am glad that she has found a new designer with flattering and feminine cuts.

Lovely dress.

Its also very good to see London based fashion houses like Temperley make inroads into the "European Royalty" market.

Mathilde looks fantastic. The dress is elegant on her and she wears it well.
