I don't mind the orange with the ruby jewels, but I don't like the repeat. I need something new!

I like the neckline and the pleating on the bodice, but not the color or the sarong-type wrap around her hips. Great tiara hairdo as always.

I love the orange dress! I think she pulls of the color well and the style is very elegant, I also love the neckline. Though I don't like that wrap on it. The rubies work well with the dress to me. However, I wish she wore something new.

I love the orange dress but I was hoping for a new dress... And those rubies are gorgeous!
Absence is, in my opinion, important to find out whether something in your life is meaningful and important! It may be difficult to endure, but the end result is always revealing.

I also love the neckline and the pleating, but I don't care for that wrap around her hips. It is too heavy and distracting.

I don´t like orange on Mary, much less combined with the rubies, but the dress itself is very nice, except for the shiny wrap at the bottom which looks quite odd against the light fabric of the dress. I think that the neckline is very flattering (and perfect to admire the rubi necklace) and I like the bodice too. I think Princess Marie has the same dress in a grey/light blue colour and without the wrap around the skirt that is much nicer.

I love the hairdo, elegant and perfect for that tiara, and a great improvement from the alien monstruosity of last year.

PD: I would love to see a close-up of Mary´s clutch, because it looks super cute in the photos Roskilde has posted

I love this dress on Mary! It's beautiful. What are the stones on the neckline of the dress? Wouldn't a tiara to match those look amazing? The rubies with the dress don't seem as jarring as the first time she wore this, but I still don't like them together.

I don't like the orange dress on Mary at all. I think it doesn't really look good with the rubies. I don't think orange is the best colour on Mary.
Have a look at TRF Rules and FAQ

The necklace matches the tiara Mary is wearing. It's the Parue set.

The gown is gorgeous. The ruby parure is brilliant. But they don't go together well.

Beautiful gown and rubies. I'm not sure I love them together but she looks gorgeous. Orange is my favorite color but I think it looks better when you have some tan to your skin. Mary's hair is perfect as usual at these events.

Though I'm not particularly fond of orange, I really like this dress. It looks lovely on Mary.

I love the color, but not sure that I like it on Mary. The shape of the dress is great on her though. And I have to agree with many of you, I love the ruby set but don't like it paired with this orange. There is just something off about the whole combination. Her hair is stunning though.

I was really hoping for a new dress!!!! This dress is a very flattering fit, colour is pretty, have not been a huge fan of this one though. Jewels and hair are very gorgeous.

I think the rubies with that shiny orange clashes as well. IMO Mary needs another substantial necklace and tiara if not a parure.

Mary looks sensational in the jewels, but not so sure about the dress. She can pull it off, but I wish it were of a different color.

I was dissapointed that she used the same dress as before but inthe ohtr hand it is good she saves some money and recycle! I really don't like the over skirt, may be it this time she was using it without it, could have been better! I ile the top part of the dress suit her and the jewellery very well, the colour....hum.... not sure not my favorite! but what it is hard for me to understand how she can wak in sleevles in the streets with that cold!!!! how does sh do it?
