Can’t really see the outfit, to me it looks like a royal blue jumpsuit with a black is certainly low cut

This is what Sophie was wearing. It's a miss for me (which is rare, very rare)

Not a good choice. I'm no prude but the neckline is distracting and the shawl doesn't work. I also agree she needs a sharper hairstyle.

Rather disappointed in this...I really expect better looks from Sophie.

Not a fan of the low cut at all and her shawl/wrapover doesn't seem to go well with her outfit. Sophie could have chosen a much better outfit for such an event - a rare miss!

Hmm. Well, that's a surprise.

I think this one comes under the heading of "What on earth was she thinking?"

What was she thinking? She usually dresses really well; maybe she was focusing on her daughter and forgot that she needed a nice and appropriate dress as well?

I agree that this was a rare miss for Sophie.

Too low-cut and her hair looks a bit bedraggled.

It doesn't photograph well, but had she a necklace it would have been smashing, I think. Maybe she chose the dress thinking there would be bling and then they all opted out of that so she got caught out. (I do think they all discuss it somehow, maybe via e-mail? I don't think it's necessarily a directive from 'on high', though maybe sometimes it is. JMO).

P.S. I think the outfit is fine. I am not put off with all the skin. It's fine. Just not blingy. When Sophie 'misses' (for me) it's with her regular casual wear at outings these days. (..)
