Mabel is going to pass to history (along with Princess Margarite, but don't make me go there ) as the Dutch Royal woman with the biggest set of scandals and bad press; God, not even Camila got that kind of media slaughter when she was Charles' "significant third" and that's saying something; I agree with some of you, she must really like to be talked about even if it's all bad things; that woman has the worst friendship circle in the world and seems to be dressed by the enemy, so...

Ooops...I think you misunderstood me...:(I was assuming that Mabel liked her dress and was pleased with the results. Wasn't bringing up scandals or anything negative. "Unbowed" was implied about her attitude toward her dress. That really was a bad pun... :(

Hey, don't worry, the thing is I have wanted to say that about Mabel for quite a while actually and you gave me the perfect opening so...

But it wasn't about you, it was about me and my *evilness*

Was Silvia already queen when she married? The dress does have a bit of a "70s feel" to it...but it is simple and lovely. Again, an instance where she wore the dress, it didn't wear her (i.e, you noticed her not just the dress).

She became Queen the moment she said 'I do'.

well silvia and carl gustaf got married 1976 so it would be a rather correct that she wore a 70 style dress

To me Monicas' dress looks like a winter coat, not a wedding dress

If I am not mistaken, it is a bridal winter coat with the bridal dress below. The dress is revealed afterwards during the wedding banquet/party.

Actually, i have not seen many of those here, but I do recall my eldest cousin wearing something similar at her wedding.

I was a kid but I recall we used to have real winters back then, so she wore a similar gown to that one - a bridal winter overcoat with a bridal dress below- so on her wedding pictures she seemed to wear a gown in the church ceremony and a different one in the party.

Awful hair, bad vale and wrongly worn tiara, too heavy for her, made her look shorter and having a little head in the top of a big and loooong shapeless body.
Instead of making her look higher and majestuous beside the very tall Felipe (1m 97cm!!!) they made her look very short, without neck at all !!! She was giving the impression as unable to move! Poor girl, i do not know if they obliged her to take this old Pertegaz or if it was her own choice, but what a pitty!!!
As regards Diana, I've saw her dress which was exposed in Kensington Palace, when she was still alive. It's made under different fashion opinion!!
Now I can not judge it, it provokes such bad feelings !!! so no opinion!
Quite funny :) I think exactly the opposite. Letizia's dress was gorgeous and Mary's was a mess...

Letizia is quite pretty IMO, you really can make her apprearing stunning (as the day before), but this day they made the opposite.

As for Mary, her vale was placed exactly as a Moyen Age vale, the whole conception of the dress was this, it fitted her and make her look like a Castle lady, a Queen.
I think it made Mary look like a made rather than a Queen :)

Well I think Princess Sayako looked terrible at her wedding. The dress is very ill fitting. Not flattering at all.
yes, there's a shocking contrast between the high quality of the cut, and the ill fitting to the Princess figure.
