Well as previously noted, both are totally tasteless but, I've just realised where the inspiration for the unbelievably awful concept of "cone breasts for weddings" comes from!

Ah, but where would Maxima be without her "statement" that says "I'm Maxima . . . deal with it!

I love her entire ensemble and her hat is fabulously, gloriously, whimsically, Beatrice. To be honest I'd love to see a few more butterflies but she seems to have been brow beaten to blah!

Too much cleavage is bad enough, but the back view is arguably even worse.

Not a dress to wear for a royal wedding. Especially if you are hoping that next one will be yours.
Who, with any clues whatsoever would wear such "immodest" tat to a Church wedding?

Oh, so I am guessing that we will not hear a lot from you on this or any other "Royal" thread since just people are of little interest let alone a source of interest and spirited discussion.

I kept thinking "where the hell is the rest of her dress? Did she have the clothes off her back stolen by Highwaymen on the way to the wedding?

Well Mutton dressed as Lamb has that effect!

Dress appropriately no matter what "type" of wedding it is.
Ah but not only is that common sense but also common decency. Unfortunately Common Sense is a most uncommon commodity.

I think Princess Caroline is one of the world's most elegant women. She looked amazing in that Chanel outfit for the Luxembourg Nuptial Mass, imo.

The only other female guest who could hold a candle to her was Letizia, Princess of Asturias.

Lee-Z: Thank you for sharing this photo with us. Totally made me laugh. And, yes, I agree the main problem is the shoes. But, also, those outfits don't seem to be a good choice for the wedding of a prince.

Gadzooks, those are the ugliest, most uncomfortably hideous shoes I have ever seen! They look like they are wearing black duct tape on their legs. So ugly

I think their shoes are fine, although decidedly Goth in the popular sense.
