This is a nice look on Mary. It's different and fresh from what she normally wears for evening events. I love that she takes chances and doesn't limit herself.

I like Mary's dress as well. It's pretty and I like how the background is plain and black; but the prints on the foreground are colourful. I also like the flowy effect the dress gives off.

Not fond of the dresses print but the style and the overall styling is lovely. I like the heels and the way they tie.

Too much of everything for me, it would have looked nicer with hair up.

September 25, 2016 - Mary at a dinner and presenting the Carlsberg Foundation Research Prizes 2016.

Mary in a new floral dress. A nice style but don't like the stitching around the bust area, it's so unflattering. The colors of the dress is nice.

The print is quite lovely but the style of the dress is definitely unflattering, to say the least. Mary has made some very strange choices of gowns of late.

Finally a new dress for Mary, and a nice one :) I don't care too much about the print, but love the A-style of the dress, so feminine. ( I like that she shows her cleavage )

I don't mind the dress, but Mary looks underdressed to me. It's something for dinner by the beach during a holiday but not for a gala evening.

What a really ugly dress, she should get her money back. The bodice is so unflattering, especially for someone flat chested like her. The blackout line, the very wide open chest area, and the darts just emphasizing how flat she is.the huge print, with one big flower on one side, just awful. Not to mention hair parted in the middle and a v neck, not a good look for her and neither is the color yellow.

The dress is lovely, but this style on Mary isn't the most flattering. I like the print and color though.

The style of dress is great but not on Mary, doesn't flatter her body. On someone else, the style would be lovely.

The print is horrible, especially in the chest area. The color is nice enough though.
