Lovely and simple dress for Marie, I would have liked a different hairdo though. Nice brooch, it looks good with this outfit.

I love the dress on Marie. Very feminine and pretty.

A boring dress, a tacky looking brooche, a bit too much make-up and uncombed looking hair.
But her smile and the baby in her arms were lovely.

I think Marie looked wonderful in that dress! Great cut and colour.

I thought she looked, simple, elegant and beautiful! Hate the brooch though.

Marie looks smashing. She demonstrates that beige/khaki colours can look great when you have the right colouring, which Marie clearly does. The colour doesn't wash her out at all.

Very pretty! The nude color looks good on Marie. Love her brooch!

Marie looked lovely! The simplicity of the dress was very elegant and classic, and its color complemented her so well. My only 'complaints' are the hair (I do not mind the style, but think it looked a tad unkept - perhaps it was windy) and the brooch (I think the amount of jewellery was sophisticated and understated, but I am undecided on whether I like the brooch or not - I find parts of the design to be ok, others not so much).

She looked lovely in the dress. I just wish for the same dress in a stronger color.

Pretty dress, I like the simplicity of her overall look.

I think this is the dress worn by Marie at the Christening yesterday

Valentino Powder Swing Dress

Looks like the dress and I like the bias cut style; I'd love to see Marie wear that in a bright color.

It most definitely IS the dress! Thank you, Marika. $2000 plus for That!?? Not worth it, IMHO. It did look very comfortable to wear, however. That awful brooch looked paste to my eyes. I hope that wasn't Joachim's gift to her. :(

I think Marie did a bit better than usual, I liked her make up, other than that I thought the dress was very blah, messy hair, clumsy shoes. I'm in the minority but I have to admit I like the brooch.

Definitely the same dress, or a copy at the very least.
I must say I really like it and wouldn't mind buying it myself.

You and me both; I like the brooch a lot.
It seems to have been made to go nicely with her engagement ring; while the latter is not my favourite, the brooch looks quite delicate and elegant.

Loved the dress and the colour suits her dark hair. Nice simple style which showed off the beautiful christening gown her daughter was wearing.
