Besides does longer hair make one appear as though they are not mature?

Heavens, no, Aurora810.

This is called a forum after all, a place where people come to voice their own opinions, just as you are voicing yours. But imagine how boring the world would be if we smiled sweetly and said how pretty Mary's x,y and z were in an effort not to upset !!!

That's kind of weird to me. I really understand that she gets stylists to suggest things for her and help her out with her image. It's just that I really hope she got the haircut because she wanted the haircut. I completely understand that she's a princess and there's an image there to uphold but princess or not I really hope she wasn't forced or coerced.
As UserDane already pointed out in post 94 this article of hola is complete nonsense.
First, Mary is obviously following a fashion trend. I personally think she wanted to be trendy not look more mature.
Second, she has not given up her patronage for Copenhagen Int. Fashion Fair and Designer's Nest. And there will be a fashion engagement in February.
Third, she became patron of the Children's Aid Foundation a few weeks after she became patron of CIFF. Regarding her patronages there hasn't been much of a change in the last months.

It's really strange to see how the media is creating an image that has nothing to do with the actual facts.
First they unfairly claim she is only attending fashion shows and then they claim she wants to change her image.
They really should have a look at the DRF's online calendar.

And if Mary really would have wanted to change her image and appear more serious and less fashionable
then it would have been a bad move to start her change with a new haircut.
It took the attention away from the cause and to her look again.
(On the other hand hola and others may never have reported about the cause without the new haircut.)

The bell sleeve cropped A-lined shaped jacket with rounded exaggerated collar, worn at today's event, is very Burberry London, Stella McCartney, and Phillip Lim:

I see the look she was going for, but I don't believe it worked for her. Instead of wearing the tight black shirt, Mary should have opted for a loose fitting silk blouse instead with the tight black mens pant.
jacket designer - such styles are in fashion again for spring season.

mary looks so good in this pragnency. her hair cut and the hair styling is so perfect. i like it.

in a german magazin are an articel about her hair cut. the say she do it because she has problems with frederik and she is jealousy on alexandra and joachims new girlfrind.

i think she simply wants a new look. the short hair are only simply practical with two children. even if she gets much assistance.

Yes, Dazzling, I did see that coat previously. All of the coats are from the Fall/Winter collections 2006.

This is the sort of dress she should wear for Baby # 2's christening:

Much more flattering than the blue number she wore for Chris'.

More tailored; the Jackie O look is flattering. I feel like she had a conference with two rival dressmakers for her outfit at Chris' christening, and then decided to go with a top from one, & the skirt from the other. Solid color does her right.

As it was, she seemed to be dressing for July in the blue number from the first christening; maybe she'll get the seasonal wardrobe right this time around!

I love the red coat, but the hair I'm still out on this one.

Whatever Mary decides to wear for the christening of her next child I'm sure it will be a stylish ensemble.

A christening is a bright, happy event. Not a dour, somber one. It may have been January, but is there some rule that states only dark, solid colors before May? She looked great and refreshing.

I actually think her outfit at Christian's wedding was outstanding, something to remember.
First I too thought that each piece seems to have its "own life"
but somehow the combination was really charming and refreshing.
And Mary looks simply gorgeous on the pictures.
That light blue and cream suited her so well IMO.

This red coat is very nice but nothing special, nothing to remember.

I think Mary looks like Eva Longoria in this photo: http://img49.imageshack.us/img49/614...polfotoda1.jpg Like the new hair cut.

Mary's a doll and I think it's admirable how she does her job so well.

Perhaps. But imagine that red coat remade into a warm rosy pink dress made of a stiff summer fabric (like a dupioni silk) with three quarter sleeves. Pin on a beautiful diamond brooch (with a sentimental and impressive provenance, like her sapphire Christian brooch), and a lovely summer hat and white Jackie O long gloves. That, in my ever so to be humble opinion, would be a beautiful christening outfit for Mary for Baby # 2. (And you can see I am rooting for a little girl this time!).
