She looks quite stunning. :smile:
I'd prefer the jacket to have longer sleeves, to cover those of the dress, but that's just my preference.

Mary has worn that lovely combination before in the USA in March 2009:

The dimensions of the dress is a bit weird but she definitely looks beautiful.

Never a favourite outfit for me.

This not one of my favorites on Mary. I agree that the coat sleeves should be longer and in fact, the length of the coat should be a little longer as well as it isn't quite covering the dress. Am I making any sense here? :)

The length of the coat sleeves and hem should be longer, and I dislike the dress pattern, too, but that's a gorgeous ruby red on Mary and I have to say her dress coordinates well with the coat. A short-sleeved outfit would have looked better with the coat, which I actually like but not worn with a long-sleeved dress. I love her brooch and earrings.

I love Mary dearly, really I do but THIS is a no-go for me. The coat itself is great but the dress underneath is horrible. Love her earrings though.

Grandduchess24 03-24-2012 12:45 PM

I dont think that the sleeves of the dress poking out of the jacket's sleeves is a very good look I would've preferred the jacket sleeves to be longer, but that's just my opinion. The outfit is nice though.

I never liked this combination. Coat is nice, she has similar one in purple but pattern of dress is old fashioned. Nothing special.

ANNIE_S 03-24-2012 01:09 PM

The coat is very beautiful, I love it. I donīt like the dress, the sleeves are awful and looks wromg with the coat and the pattern looks like a curtain, imo.
I liked the outfit ore the first time she wore it. Today her hair and make-up doesnīt look too good.

I think Mary looks splendid, I was thinking I would never see that diamond brooch again. I am in agreement, dress sleeves are strange but I still like the whole princess look!

Archduchess Zelia 03-24-2012 02:36 PM

Mary looked marvellous today, the jacket is one of my personal favourites and it goes well with the floral dress, although the sleeves looked kinda out of place. The brooch and the earrings looks stunning too.

Lumutqueen 03-24-2012 02:43 PM

Always loved this match, would have loved a hat!

Marika86 03-24-2012 03:00 PM

This is one of my favourite combination. Mary today looks lovely.The shoes are good too. I like the brooch.

Roskilde 03-24-2012 03:46 PM

Mary looks splendid today and this outfit is one of my favorites. Maybe because red is my favorite color on her.

I haven't been here on TRF for awhile, but am glad to be back :)

Dierna23 03-24-2012 03:48 PM

I like the coat, but the dress is not pretty. She could lend it to a royal lady aged 60+ and I'm afraid not even then I'd like it.

IloveCP 03-24-2012 04:29 PM

It's a lovely outfit but I wish the sleeves were shorter.

EIIR 03-24-2012 04:49 PM

The sleeves are horrible, why on earth would anyone ruin a perfectly nice pattern with those sleeves?

As I stated in the QEII fashion thread the other day, I have a bit of a bug bear where people wear coats which are shorter than the dress underneath. Either make them the same length, make the coat longer than the dress or keep the coat waist length. Mary's coat is slightly shorter than the dress and it just looks messy.

Daria_S 03-24-2012 05:14 PM

I love the combination of ruby red and light pink. Mary looks fabulous. The only thing I don't like are the shortened sleeves on the coat, but the style and the fit of the said coat are prefect.

dbarn67 03-24-2012 08:04 PM

If the dress' sleeves weren't peeking I'd be 100% on board with this outfit. As it is I give it a 90%.
