Two articles on Mabel's dress

"Dutch fury over dress of Princess Mabel"

"The Huffington Post on the Dutch Princesses: Quelle horreur!"

News Summary Royalblog.nl: Dutch fury over dress of Princess Mabel


She should be thinking of her two daughters that will someday see
pictures of their mother at "Queen Victoria's Wedding"

charlottestreasures, thank you so much for posting those links...fascinating!

The thing about Mabel is that she has a GREAT figure, super slim after two children and being in her late 30's. I can't understand why she keeps getting it so wrong..didn't Viktor and Rolf design her "Attack Of The Killer Bows" wedding gown as well?

It's obvious that she and Friso couldn't care less, and rather enjoy making waves.

Either that, or they both simply have mind bogglingly bad taste.

Assuming that Mabel and Friso are invited to Albert and Charlene's wedding, whenever that may be, any guesses as to what she'll wear? :-p

I shudder at the thought.

Sometimes I wonder if Mabel isn't doing her best to thumb her nose at the establishment as payback for Friso having to give up his succession rights in order to marry her. She can't be wearing the disasters that she wears just because she thinks she really looks good in them.

Oh come on, even if he didn't give his succesion right up, (and he only did it so he were able to marry her without any complications rising up), him becoming the King is a looooong strech.

First, I didn´t like Mabel´s dress but I would like to say she has a beautiful figure and a lovely face and I can´t understand the headline "Dutch Fury" I would have been far more furious if I were Dutch at some of the getups that Laurentien wears, It was lucky in my opinion, that it was a Dutch designer that thought up that half and half dress.

Why everybody is talking about Mabel's dress? Yes, it was awful, but at the swedish wedding, Infanta Elena was hilarious with that dress created by Lorenzo Caprile.
It is not possible that a 47 years old princess to wear such a thing.

There is not much to say about that outfit except "Olé".

The dress would have been nicer if she didn't throw that hideous matador bolero on over it. I think if she had a nice shawl or maybe a gauzy wrap to go with it, she would have looked better.

I agree. Elena's gown was very pretty and then she threw that bolero on and ruined it.

"Chick" is a derogatory term.

Laurentien's may wear terrible outfits frequently but they are tamer and less laughable than the getup Mabel wore to Victoria's wedding IMHO. That outfit was a disaster.

Victoria's wedding is not New York Fashion Week where it's ok to showcase avant garde designs by Viktor and Rolf.

Yeah...that was not attractive at all, was it? The Infanta usually has pretty good taste in evening wear.

I'm really sorry, but in this outfit that's exactly what she is... That's why you don't show up to a future monarch's wedding in such attire. What a waste.

This thread is hilarious... OLE

Eureka! I have been validated! If that outfit could have been redesigned by making her slacks and the skirt out of a more silk like material and a short matching jacket, it might have had a better chance....but then perhaps that might have been too safe.

I fully agree as I thought that a few days ago when looking again at Mabel. If she could have had a silk skirt and some flowing silk pants, with a short jacket, it could have been very pretty, instead of the awful dark men's tailored pants.

I saw a picture of Elena from Corbis. The bolero jacket is a tad busy but the gown itself I find to be rather pretty....Laurentien looked a lot worse!!!
