Looks like the dress Sophie (Countess of Wessex) wore recently, only with white background instead of black.
The dress is probably nice, but the print is just too busy for me. It might have worked for an outdoor event, but not indoor one.

Princess Astrid has posed for birthday pictures (she'll be 50 tomorrow), wearing three different outfits,
you can't see much of the first ones (a nice white blouse and a recycled jacket), but you can see the
dress, which is quite nice:




** Outfit 1 ** Outfit 2 ** Outfit 3 dress **

Princess Astrid attended a concert for the Belgian National Day this evening, July 20, wearing a nice skirt and a nice jacket
- I like both on her, but am not 100% sure if they should be combined. I can't decide

I like them separate but not together.

The Chanel jacket nicely matched a simple white top. The glittery skirt is no for me.

Sigh of relief!! Astrid is one of my favourite princesses, but when it's time for galas she may do fashion disasters!! Not tonight, she's wonderful, dignified and attractive! Any idea about the designer? I think the dress is new, right?

Another Elie Saab for sure. She looked great last night!
Today's coat-dress made her look huge or is it my idea? It's quite elegant though.

She looked ok at the gala. At the wedding, everything about her ensemble was nice, except the final result on her body.

Yes, she don't look very thin in it, but may that be because of the dress she's wearing under the coat?
The peculiar think about cold-season weddings is that, if you want to look good in photos, you have to be more careful to the coat and to how you look in it than to the proper dress!

I like this dress very much. Maybe she was caught at a bad moment, but good posture and a smile would do wonders
