I was actually hoping you could link to a picture that showed the fabric better up close.

Defensive much?

There are plenty of photos of it up close, right on this thread. (...)

Mary looks wonderful, I love her dress and hat and the colours looks great on her, certainly my favourite Ascot outfit from today. And such a nice surprise to see her in attendance.

It is a lovely dress, a gorgeous colour. I like it very much. Mary wore it to an award ceremony in 2012, apparently. Her hat is lovely but also a repeat. Mary wore it to Estelle of Sweden's christening and Princess Charlene of Monaco's wedding.

She looks fantastic . What a beautiful dress, I loved it the first time she wore it years ago. The color looks great on her.

I am unimpressed with Crown Princess Mary's ensemble. Most of the ladies around her wore dresses with long-sleeves or jackets with short-sleeved dresses. The teardrop detail on the dress made it look awkward on some photos. Crown Princess Mary at Ascot 2016 | Getty Images Moreover, it crumpled badly.

Somehow the colour just doesn't work for me at Ascot [just insufficently Summery].

This is one of my favorite dresses on Mary. The color looks great on her (whatever that shade is, I LOVE it!!) and the design is really flattering. Her hat is one of my faves, also.

I like this dress but not for this occasion. I am surprised to see Mary kind of underdressed at such a high profile event for her. British Royals are known around the world, much less people know that Denmark is a Kingdom let alone the CP couple. Mary could have so much better.

The dress is too low cut, the bra shows, its wrinkly after the carriage ride. I don't like the hat but its the only piece that hits the fashion mark for today.

I like the dress and I like her hat, but together it doesn't work and the dress is a bit too underdressed for the event.

I have never really thought that dress was anything special to be honest the whole look is very boring IMO and agree underdone for Ascot

Top points for the color. It looks great on her, and I find it summery

But while I quite like the dress, I have to agree with others,that it wasn't the right one for Ascot. She looks under dressed for the occasion, and the lower cut neckline seems a bit much (not for a normal event but Ascot has pretty modest dress codes in the enclosures).

Mary indeed looks wonderful today. Gorgeous color and dress. I have been looking forward to see that red dress again, it suits her. And I love that hat! Perfect for the Ascot and it makes the whole outfit the epitome of elegance!

But she is such a beautiful and smiling woman so it also helps a lot. (Beautiful hair)
