I also love this gown except for the black zipper down the back which cheapens the gown. Tiny buttons would of been much better and more elegant IMHO. I love, just love the fabric, what detail it took to make and hours of hand sewing.
It is so different and nice to see she is not afraid to take a chance on something new. Would love to see it up close and feel the fabric, bad habit of mine is always touching fabrics in stores and shops to get the feel for it......bet this is heavenly gown in person.

Interesting choice of words by the Daily Mail when referring to the CP's diamond, ruby and spinel convertible necklace as a "stunning, decadent tiara". I leave it to the jewelry experts on TRF to judge the quality of the stones in the CP's new go-to tiara.

I've been within reach of Crown Princess Mary as she wore the tiara and it had no sparkle at all. It's an attractive tiara, but not that impressive IMO.

The dress is ok , but because its has a pattern to it , she shouldn't wear so much jewellery with it
( I know she had to ) but I like her is bold colour

The Queens should see how to wear perfectly a Collar of an Order ON a Dress.

I agree. The collar's placement was a little off, but, to be fair, the gown's neckline made it difficult to place the collar.

I really like this look from the front. The gown sets off the Order of the Wlephant chain quite nicely, to my eye, and I like the more subtle sparkle of this tiara with that fabric. But that back zipper...it’s a trend, I know, but I’d rather see the trend confined to less formal attire.

I think the dress is hideous!
A rare miss for Mary.

Thanks for the link! I did change my mind about the dress after looking at the pictures. It's a work of art. Her best? No, but a great dress for New Years Court.

Thanks for the link on the gown......yes it is a work of art for sure. In viewing the link you can see how luxurious the fabric is. What I gorgeous piece of fabric this is, if only she did not have to wear so much jewelry with it..........let the dress speak for itself!

Thanks for posting the link. The additional context was very helpful. I didn't dislike the dress initially, but I was underwhelmed. Having seen the richness of the embroidery, and the details of the fabric, the dress makes a lot more sense to me now. It's still not one of my favorites, but at least Mary didn't look underdressed for the occasion, which was my first impression.

It happens a lot on the fashion threads: the first photos come out, and the first reaction is positive or negative, and then additional photos or video footage end up giving a totally different impression.

I agree with you with the zipper in the back, also the original model has a black belt and here looks it is the same fabric, I think I like more with black belt.
The fabric it is stunning, wonder where he Found it?

I would have add a shall because of the cold and wind but I guess the palace it is very well heated!
It is a fairy tale dress I think , but agree probably quite heavy!
Humm ….shoes.....wonder what shoes she used?

I sincerely adore the dress and I bet absolutely wonderful in person. Sometimes photos do no justice. What I always hate is the official orders that hang around the chests of everyone and these woman are forced to wear that to me spoils everything. Although I must admit these are not as bad as those darn awful sashes thrown across their chests which usually clash with everything. Why spend many thousands on a lovely dress and have to spoil. I know it is supposed to be an honor but a small delicate pin would still show the world their rank rather than all that overdone stuff. JMHO

I don't care for the dress - the zipper is horrid - but I think it suits the occasion. Great to see Mary trying something new and toning down a bit in terms of colour and in the jewellery department. She used to look like an Xmas tree at this event with the ruby parure and some colourful gown, worst I recall was the orange dress in 2013.

I have mixed feelings. I think the dress looks better in reality - as in the pictures all of the details of the lace disappear in the dark background - BUT - overall, I think the colour is a tick too dark for Mary. I understand why she did not choose the rubies - this tiara is a much better fit.
So overall not bad but not one of her most splendid appearances ...

As I expected, this dress looks better in motion. You can tell the colors aren´t as clashing as they looked with all of those flash photographs. It´s not a WOW for me, but it´s a good dress.
