Aha! I've been trying to think what it reminds me of . . . and that's it. The colour is fabulous in the dress and the dress falls beautifully but those shoes, while a gorgeous style, are just so awful because the colour is so bright that it is the ensemble statement and not in a good way. Oh, Mary, whatever were you thinking!

The bodice is not well designed. The deep v neck is not for her and the scalloped waistline looks funny. The color and fabric do look very eighties, and not in a good way. The shoes look ridiculous

I was just about to say this
The purple shoes only add to the desaster!

Too much dress. I love the purple shoes, but not with this dress.

The blue dress was not flattering at all. The whole look was off and not up to her usual standard.

The red outfit is a return to form, thankfully. Very pretty shade of red on her, showcases her lovely figure without hitting you over the head, I like the detailing on the skirt and hair and make up are spot on.

Glad to see Mary wear the skirt with the original top! She looks lovely.
