Both time she wore the dress with the same jacket so this is the first time we are seeing the dress.

I own the skirt version of this design and it's quite creative how the dress and skirt were made.

Mary has an ability to pull off a mix 'n match of outfits that would look ridiculous on anyone else. I like the look

Absolutely gorgeous from top to bottom. I love the coat with the dress, and the hat looks great on her. Mary very rarely misses!

I love the dress and the coat, not too fond of the hat but it sure could have been worse. I think Mary looked quite stunning today, very elegant indeed.

Really wonderful dress. Who made it? How lucky are you Avee to have a skirt of it??
The coat looks soft and lovely and she really looks stunning except for the hat. Too big and silly looking for a christening.

The hat reminds me of ones the Countess of Wessex and the Duchess of Cambridge have worn in the past. But I don't care for it, too OTT for me.

@ Baroness of Books: Mary has already worn the hat for the Monaco wedding. I have to say I love the whole outfit. Once again she looks stunning and I am sure she is a great godmother to Estelle.

I liked the hat better the first time she wore it. I actually think it looked better contrasted with the turquoise dress she wore it with then. Sadly, the more I look at the hat the sillier it looks. Maybe it is slightly over the top for this event. Also, she looks like she's wearing a lab coat over her dress.

The designer is Strenesse. I was looking for another Strenesse item and came across the the skirt. There was a matching top too but it was too small. The first two times Princess Mary wore this outfit, I couldn't tell if she was wearing a dress or the matching top and skirt. Finally, we can see she is wearing the dress.

the coat is strange and doesn't match the lovely dress...

Wow! She has the whole look wrapped up. That hat is divine and it certainly needed another outing. I adored it the first time and I love it this time. Surprisingly, it can be worn with entirely different colours (Monaco/Sweden).

The dress is beautiful with it's elegant body line and wonderful caramel gold geometric pattern softened by a silk/chiffon overlay? that gives it a soft feminine finish.

The coat is elegant and a fabulous counterpoint of texture against the softness of the dress. Its colour a perfect match with the lighter tones of the flower on the hat.

Accessories? Perfect! The handbag is to die for and oh how I wish I could wear shoes like that!

Altogether, a perfect ensemble and perfectly suited to a Baptism.

(Saddly that's the only place we mere mortals get to wear our hats . . . weddings and baptisms . . . oh, and the occasional Race Meeting!)
