It's not that prints are a deal-breaker for the camera lens, one just has to be very aware of one's background (which the solid color as shawl or sweater neatly provides on one's own terms).

Me too, that's once again a wonderful print dress she wore today!

I would give her the benefit of the doubt, after years in the public eye, she knows what she is doing with prints. Not accidental.

The dress is fantastic. Love the color and style. Jacket is great with it.

The pink was kind of blah. Pretty but not a favorite of mine of hers.

I think this is a really elegant coat design and I really want to like it.

But in full photos, it just looks BIG. In another fabric, maybe?

The collar looks bulky to me, or is it a hood?

Just some thoughts: for this coat to look 'good' (in the way I think is being meant) Sophie would have to be a stick figure.

This is an example of how the camera's eye creates impressions of body image that impact self-image. It is okay to look 'big'. JMO.

Lovely coat but agree, seems too big on her. Much better if it fit her better.

Lovely coat, I really like it. And can see this in lots of different colors. I would venture to say that the collar is a hood also. She looks very elegant and stylish in this coat.

I have to wonder about coats. It seems some people only think of them in terms of coat-dresses, not something to keep warm in. I love this coat and I am pleased she went with a light colour as there is a tendency for outerwear to get darker and darker as we move into winter and there stands Sofie in what almost looks like a swing coat with a hood. Yummy.
