You people really crack me up saying Stephanie has a 'John Wayne' gait. I think she looks like Drew Barrymore, actually.

I actually just finished watching live video of Stephanie and Guillaume at the reception that was given for members of the Government, the Military and the Church and Diplomatic Corps on the day of their engagement.

She is quite a poised, pretty and graceful young woman in a relaxed atmosphere...still photos don't do her justice at all, imo.

Guillaume made an excellent choice for the future Grand Duchess of Luxembourg!

Miche, I was just going on what one report on an online newspaper said of Catherine's heels, that they were 6 inches. Well, I realize that the platforms are part of that height. I realize the other princesses also wear these very high heels, including platforms. The platforms make it easier for them to wear these skyscraper heels. But I think Stephanie may not have worn these much. Never in my lifetime would I have been able to walk down those stairs at Berg with shoes like that on my feet, and I was a ballet dancer in youth. No wonder she had to hold on tight to Guillome, and he to her, to make it down the stairs. She will learn to wear them with practice. But I would prefer she wore lower heels for her health's sake.
I think she is fascinating and that they are the epitome of an excellent royal couple so far....may the "so far" extend forever.

^If those newspaper did their jobs and research they would found out from the companies website the height of these shoes (which included the platforms height in them) that most of Catherine's heels fall into the 3.5" to 4.5" and two of them being 5". A heels that is 3.5" to 4.5" are not even that high, completely average.

One can only hope that, unlike me, they won't be practically crippled by the damage that wearing those types of shoes cause.

Sadly some women who wear these extreme high heeled shoes will down the road if they wear them a lot will have damage to their feet and their back or other problems. God forbid if you fell or tripped while wearing these shoes.

At least Catherine wears flats when grocery shopping and when walking the dog.

Anyone who walks a dog while in high heels is a little nutty. Especially if the person doesn't have proper control over the dog and the dog decides to take a run for it.

So, I am hearing that Stephanie has been appointed to the Board of Directors of Henri and Maria-Teresa's charitable foundation...La Fondation Grand-Ducale?

There are some lovely and sweet photos of Guillaume and Stephanie attending a garden party yesterday at Colmar-Berg...he has matched his necktie to the dress she is wearing.

They look absolutely wonderful together, I wish I knew how to scan photos.

Why scan? You could just copy, paste and post the link.

Here's the facebook gallery of photos from the occasion:

Here's a very recent video of the royal family. Stephanie was accompanying them and although the focus of the video is not on her, she appears for a couple of seconds. She's dressed very casually and in my opinion, she looks better in slacks, a t-shirt and with her hair down than when she does all dressed up. In fact, she looks quite attractive here.

I agree that she looks great in casual clothes--softer, more natural things. And without the high heels (at least not showing). Together she and the HGD look wonderful. What a couple!

Countess Stephanie is lovely indeed. Grand Duchess Maria Teresia is a wise woman to welcome and support her daughter-in-laws.

Wow! She's so pretty. She has that natural wholesome beauty that some natural beauties have, the type of beauty that is best appreciated when a women is dressed down as she is in those pictures. What a difference from the day that she was presented to the world. That stiff, layered red dress, those heels and the hair combed up, did not bring out the best in her. What were her designers and the Grand Court PR people thinking? She will definitely be a princess that will give the other beautiful princesses of the world a run for their money. She is every much as beautiful as Mary of Denmark and Catherine Middleton of England, both whom I consider pretty princesses. The European magazines will undoubtedly enjoy photographing her. What a handsome couple!

I know I might get a bead down for this but I think they are both what I like to call actively unattractive. In that regard they are a great match.

Her clothes today were slightly too tight. I would be mortified to leave the house in a bra and top that gave me the appearance of back fat. She's a thin girl and shouldn't have that problem if wearing well fitting clothes.

Stephanie needed better fitting underwear than what she wore with that outfit, but I think she is much prettier than I originally decided. There is something almost fragile about her seen close up, and combined with her voluptuous curves I can see how he became smitten.

As someone on another board very aptly pointed out here is an upper class, cultured young woman, a linguist with a Master's degree educated in Belgium, France and Russia. She doesn't need to be a fashion plate and a whiz with cosmetics like some of these recent women marrying Crown Princes..she is almost undoubtedly aware that who she already is is quite enough. She is the most impressive and accomplished would be Crown Princess in well over a decade, and by marrying her Guillaime is scoring a personal coup not only for himself but for Luxembourg.

What strikes me about them as a couple is the way Guillaume looks at her with such adoration and pride. No matter what people say on the blogoshere, the one person whose opinion really matters seems to think she is perfect.
