I love this new dress. It's by Erdem.
The print and the colors are very nice, the cut is flattering and the belt from the same fabric adds a lot to the waist. The hair pulled up was done nicely. Her overall was quite simple and effortless and it worked.

Why is this awful to you? Just curious! I like the print of the fabric, I bet it's a nice silk fabric and just so summery and fun for a change. She has perfect hair, perfect jewels and she is one very pretty lady...........she carries herself well, seems very well mannered and behaves in public like a lady.

The short Erdem dress is lovely, but it's very different; the neckline is different, the style is different (the gentle billowing of the hem on the short dress is lovely), and the short one is sleeveless.

Mary's dress is long, flat and has puffed sleeves that look nice on young girls. They don't look nice on women 40+.

I think colour mixes are great, but in order to really work, they need to be either in "cool colours" or "warm colours". These dresses have a mix across the borders, and in the long one in particular, it hurts the eye.

Mary's hair is lovely, and the earrings are gorgeous.

I did not see any puff sleeves on this dress. And I think it looks marvelous on Crown Princess Mary. This dress is demure and suitably for any women who are confident of their figure (be it >.40 <)

The dress is a little busy for me, but I love the bright colours and Mary looks elegant, as usual. Her hairstyle is great.

If you zoom in on this photo, you can see little puffs on her sleeves, which I think is what redtulip was referring to.

Mary recycled an ugly dress of hers:

The top half of the dress isn't that flattering, neither are the colours. Mary would've looked elegant without the belt. Having said that, her hair is great.

Even glorious Mary cannot make this dress look elegant much less pretty. It does nothing for her what so ever..

The style and colours are very Scandinavian, but it looks like a shower curtain from Ikea.

It actually looks much better in these pics. It's soft and floaty and feminine. It's still not on my list of favorites, but it's not as bad as I first thought. Her hair looks lovely. Thank you, Roskilde!
