That is the fashion, retro 1950's. Als other royal ladies can be spotted with this sort of skirts. These seldomly become the wearer well, I must say.

:ohmy:

udyusa 04-29-2014 02:50 PM

I must say that I agree with you that it is not a flattering look, Duc_et_Pair.

Thanks for the close-up!:flowers:
The pattern looks like a shibori dyeing.

roseroyal 04-29-2014 03:23 PM

I like the dress she wore today. Love the hot pink handbag!

HereditaryPrincess 04-29-2014 04:07 PM

For me, the brown ruins what would've been a great dress. I think that's because the other colours are softer and more pastelish, whereas the brown is quite bold and strong. Other than that, Mathilde looks elegant and the hand bag is cute.

Barbara21 04-30-2014 04:59 AM

Pretty dress. Nice combination of colors, goes well with pink hand bag and shoes. But i don´t like the horizontal striped effect.

A lovely and elegant outfit - I'm desperate to see a diamond brooch with it!!

Who is the lady they are with? She looks rather elegant too in dark blue.

dazzling 04-30-2014 07:34 AM

This is such a lovely dress and color.
It would've looked better with a brooch though.

Al_bina 04-30-2014 11:40 AM

The brooch would have added a nice touch to the ensemble.

udyusa 04-30-2014 12:32 PM

Lovely dress and color. But as other's have said, it needs a brooch.

roseroyal 04-30-2014 01:08 PM

That color is absolutely stunning!
But it looks better with a brooch- like she had it in Monaco.
No complaints today though.

HereditaryPrincess 04-30-2014 03:07 PM

I guess I'm on my own here as I think the dress is fine without a brooch. Mathilde looks elegant and I love that shade of purple. However I'm not a huge fan of the extra layer of fabric (I'm not sure how to describe this, this may be a confusing description) on the top half. It looks a little odd.

roseroyal 04-30-2014 03:38 PM

I know what you're talking about, and it is a little odd, I still like the outfit.

Frelinghighness 04-30-2014 10:48 PM

Where's the brooch? the other horrible N outfit with the hips and weight addeing invertted pleats was really unfortunate, even beautiful mathilde couldn't save it.
I liked that she wore low heels for her shorter hosts, for me a sign of respect.

Lovely shade of green and a lovely fit. I wish she wore more of these style dresses rather than Natan.

Good to see London based designers like Issa, Erdem (with Crown Princess Mary) and Jenny Packham (with Crown Princess Victoria) make a headway with the European royal ladies. Come on Ladies, London is the hot bed of fashion, come and try more of our designers than the established French and Italian houses.

I love the detail on the waist, it's very flattering on Mathilde. Here's a picture of the dress under better lighting:

Al_bina 05-07-2014 01:05 PM

Dresses by Issa look flattering on most women. I like the bright colour.

HereditaryPrincess 05-10-2014 12:48 PM

I absolutely love Mathilde's Issa dress, that colour is my favourite! It seems to be the "in" colour at the moment, since I've seen others wear clothing of that colour and I myself have a pair of shoes and a vest top in that colour.

Frelinghighness 05-10-2014 11:06 PM

Adore this look on her, so flattering! The color is terrific on her too, great earrings. The shoes, no, look like Daisy Duck.

Mathilde looks wonderful in green and this particular Issa design is very flattering. However, I think that with her very long legs, it is a little too short and therefore looks at best, a little unbalanced, and at worst, reminiscent of a gangly schoolgirl. An illusion that isn't helped by the added height of her platform shoes making her legs look even longer. :ermm:

Duc_et_Pair 05-11-2014 06:40 AM

I agree the dress on itself is nice but the size and fit looks a bit unbalanced.

udyusa 05-11-2014 12:32 PM

That was my first impression, as well. I just think it is a little short. I also just do not like those peep toe platform shoes on anyone.

julliette 05-11-2014 05:20 PM

I agree that it looks a bit unbalanced. The detail in the front is very nice.

Very nice pants and shiny patterned jacket combo, the blue dress and cardi look way too matronly

Very flattering , I hope at the end of the Competition we will see Queen Fabiola.

udyusa 05-17-2014 12:09 AM

I don't think the pants are flattering at all. The floral jacket is nothing special, but the colors are pretty on her.

HereditaryPrincess 05-17-2014 01:35 PM

I like the outfit she wore to the Queen Mathilde Prize. I think the colour combination is great. I'm not so sure what I think about her outfit to the Queen Elisabeth Singing Competition though, sometimes I like it and sometimes I don't. I like it because I love the colours of her trousers and do think they're flattering, whereas I dislike it because the jacket isn't my cup of tea. It's a little busy and I'm not a huge fan on the colours used.

Duc_et_Pair 05-17-2014 01:49 PM

I like Queen Mathilde and she often makes good fashion choices, but -for me- it always misses thát little extra touch to complete it: a hat, a pair of gloves, an eyecatching brooch. Show that you are Queen of the Belgians!

I am not sure but i thinks it a dress of Dries van Noten.

Barbara21 05-27-2014 05:41 PM

The overall impression is very good. Nice dress and the floral print is my favourite. Only the earrings are not to my taste.

HereditaryPrincess 05-27-2014 06:24 PM

I guess I'm on my own here, as I'm not a huge fan of the floral print. To me it looks a little odd. The dress is lovely overall though, and Mathilde looks elegant.

roseroyal 05-27-2014 06:53 PM

If it was all that floral print, or all-white I would've loved it.
As it is, they look like they took couch covering fabric, and stuck in the middle of the dress. It looks like they tried to reupholster a couch on a dress. In other words, remake a dress. It's like she had a white dress, and a floral dress, and they smashed them together. If you did that,that would be the result.
Hope it's alright to say this, but the way they placed it around her bosom looks really unattractive.

Mathilde seems to almost always look elegant. I have a suspicion she would look elegant even wearing a sack! (With elegant shoes of course).

Mathilde looks lovely. That shade of green looks nice on her, and I like how the little pattern reminds me of leaves. (See the 'upper part' photo.)

Yes I agree! CP Mary is another royal who could make a sack look elegant, too. :smile:

I am not sure about the dress. I like a lively green apple colour and jacquard looking material. Based on the photos, it seems to that the upper part is not properly fitted.

Once again Mathilde shows how to look good and a little summery with a slightly off-the-shoulder dress. I love the three quarter sleevs as they are a little bit more formal and give the dress a sort of "royal" stamp.

I love the colour on her. Green is definitely not a colour that everyone can wear and her earrings just finish the whole "look".

Barbara21 05-29-2014 05:20 AM

Nice dress and Mathilde is so elegant. The color is beautiful and stands out. But I agree that the upper part is not properly fitted.

A truly beautiful. Somehow, a very delicate and feminine look. Usually I do not like such headpiece, but Queen Mathilde wears it beautifully and elegantly. On the other hand, the headpiece is perhaps too circular.

I think we have a theme running here. Lovely, elegant, colour suits her, looking cool and stylish and last but by no means least, it makes her look years younger.

Well, far be it from me to disagree. She looked uttlerly magical and definitely very regal. In short, she nailed it. The epitome of a lady and of a beautiful Queen!

Truly a summery look. The blouse is probably too colorful for my taste, but the overall impression is good.
