To my eyes they look youthful, colourful, clean cut, minimalistic, somewhat scandinavian... so I like them.
Because he can make a beautiful woman look like she shopped at a mall discount store and didn't try the dress on to see if it fit properly before buying it.

If that is the case, she is doing a great job!
It might be the case but i think that the Palace should help, at least for the official outfits. I do not think that CP Mette Marit or Letizia paid their outfits from their pockets, after their engagement!

Lol, good description,
I can always tell if Mathilde or Maxima have him on, it may be making a statement , but not in their favor.
Stephanie has to watch the shoes, I agree she walks, as my mother would say, like a horse, not in a ladylike way at all which makes me think she doesn't have practice in heels.
She would have looked beautiful in the Valentino Princess Marie wore for her daughter's baptism a few days ago.

Artemisia, I join in here - - not a good ensemble at all. But I do like her the way she wears her hair

I quite like her outfit from Princess Estelle christening. I think skirt was very short for that event but rest of outfit is ok. She looked nice.

I didn't like Countess Stephanie outfit at the christening.I dislike every single piece.
It's really too short for a church event.Call me,old fashioned but I find it silly when women wore shorts skirts for official and religious events.
Her shoes are ugly .I didn't see the video of her walking but I believe those who say that she doesn't walk gracefully.I wonder if any woman will work gracefully with those inelegant shoes.
I agree with those who say that the palace could have helped.
It was her first international event,I would have expected her to shine.
I hope she will do better next time.

Well Maria Teresa did try to help she loaned her the hat. Maybe, Stephanie likes her own style and chose to wear what she likes

Was the entire outfit from Natan, or just the dress? Were the dress and jacket sold together as one ensemble by Natan? They don't seem to go together, so I'd be surprised.

Hi Lindy, I have no idea if each separate piece was Natan, or just the dress. I read on another fashion blog that said simply that her ensemble was by Natan.

July 16- Stephanie looked very pretty in this pink dress. I think it's a great color on her.

The dress itself IS very pretty but it was accessorized badly, imo. That neckline cannot take any competition, and Stephanie had at least two or three necklaces on.

She should have foregone the necklaces and stuck with some beautiful dangling earrings instead.

I think we should give this young woman some time to adjust herself to the international royal world. The Luxemburg princesses are not used to step into the world of royalty that much. Mostly it was the elder son and the parents who represent their country. This very young woman still has to learn a lot and create her own style. Did not many princesses to be fall into the fashion trap? Give her a year and than we can judge.

As for my part, I liked her outfit on the Christening of Princess Estelle. Not bad for her first entrance as representative of her country.

July 31, 2012 - Stéphanie de Lannoy during the olympics in a printed dress matched with a white jacket. Disappointing look, the print of the dress is hideous IMO and I also think its a bit too young for her.

I like a simple white jacket but the print of the dress is awful.

New pictures of Stephanie - the dress is too big and makes her look pregnant I'm afraid. I dont have high hopes for the bridal dress!!!
Very matronly.

Well, she is still mourning. So what would you expect her during such a phase? IMHO this dress is perfectly acceptable given the current circumstances.
