The fit of Stephanie's dress is a bit too small around the bust, and I wish she had worn either nude pumps, or slingbacks to match the shade of her dress...which is really very elegant and pretty. The color is to to die for. In fact, Stephanie and Gui and most of the GD family seem to be wearing some version of peach/blue....the colors of the House of Nassau. Nice touch!

Stephanie's hair looks divine. What else is new.

Glad she didn't wear matching shoes or nude. The white looks good.

The dress color is amazing. She always loos fantastic in bright colors. Simple but chic look for the late summer baptism of her son.

And of course as usual fantastic hair. Never fails on that end.

I think yellow shades are difficult to wear, and look better on brunettes instead of blondes.
I don't believe that dress flatters Stephanie.

Stephanie's hair is a dark honey blonde. I think the peach orange color is gorgeous for her.

That last photo of Prince Charles smiling over her shoulder at the camera melted my heart.

I am not really into babies but he looks straight from the angels...just perfect.

ETA: Princess Claire is a brunette and is wearing one of the most unflattering yellow dresses EVER.

Her dress didn't fit well at all (she probably expected to have lost a little more weight by now) and her hair pulled back makes her face look rather 'strict'; but her motherly love comes through nonetheless.

Stephanie, is lovely, happiness is glowing on her.

Yes, her hairdo is divine, as always, she has very good hairdresser.

Yes, fit of the dress is not good, but I think that fit of outfits war never her cup of tea, her clothes were always either too tight, either too large, so I do not believe is matter of loosing pregnancy weight, is just that she does not really care about, or her stylist does not care either..

Overall there is a lovely happy family and they will do a great job.

The yellow dress is by Paule Ka

Pink dress is also Paule Ka at the Bourbon-Parma and Habsburg wedding.

The dress is way too tight up top showing lumps and bumps and doesn’t fit well even in the arm holes. Also the harsh yellow color is not for her. She doesn’t seem to have a stylist. There are many other styles that would be flattering to her, I would start with sleeves. A slight bell sleeve, half or three quarters.
The hairdresser is a dream, and beautiful diamond earrings though I wouldn’t wear drop earrings around a baby that age. The necklace is too old for her
The whole idea is to feel comfortable, and confident.
Feeling like you can’t breathe in a dress, that the baby may grab the earrings shouldn’t be happening

Problem with a stylist you clearly cant please everyone.

The yellow isn't harsh, its fantastic on her. She looks great in vibrant colors. If anyone looks bad in yellow at the event its Claire who looks like a banana.

Not all babies are grabby. She has common sense. If she was worried about her son grabbing for her earrings she could have worn another pair.

And 'old' is like the color, a matter of opinion. Some people love when royal women wear pearls. Others think they look like they belong in the 50s. Same issue with this necklace.


The dress indeed did fit tightly. When it was chosen she likely thought she would have lost more weight by then from the birth. Its unfortunate size wise she didn't change the dress. The style itself is fine, its the fit.

It looks yellow in the photos, but peach on the HGD. It's a pretty dress, imo but the fit especially around the bust not good.

I agree with Countessmeout that Claire does not look her best in that frumpy yellow dress and those flat blue Mary Janes.

What a lovely idea! Stephanie looks fantastic. I wish she had worn those shoes with the peach dress.

yes, stephanie has been a fan of paule ka for a long time, and she tends to pick it for big events (state visit by belgium, kate's official visit). i wouldn't say it is my preferred designer on her though. i'd stick with the lovely gowns by elie saab for the evening gowns for example.
