And by the way, I cannot imagine sheer hose would keep a woman's legs warm during cold winters. Is there some sort of new type of panty hose that keep their legs warm?

For some strange reason you actually can feel the difference between bare legs and sheer hoses.
In Denmark the shops start selling more densely vowen (is that the right word?) stockings as well as soon as autumn comes - some with a bit of wool in.
I quite like the autumnal style with warm fabrics and these types of stockings.:smile:

Marie Cavalier has a very simple style.

I am so pale that you can see all my veins through my legs. So I have to wear hose at all times. And I can't use lotion, they don't make a color for my legs, it looks awful and doesn't stay on either.

Try a tint next time from Neiman's.:smile:

Stay away from the tanning lotion's. There is nothing more tragic, in the fashion and beauty world that is, when a woman's skin tone is bright burnt orange like an Oompa Loompa essentially looking like she ate one too many carrots and/or went a bit crazy at the tanning salon.:rolleyes:


All right, we really need to get back on topic.

This thread is about Marie, Prince Joachim's girlfriend, remember.;)

Funny! Thanks Glittering Tiaras for making me laugh on this dreary Friday!

i thought pantyhoses were quite an important thing in royals and it was quite a protocolar thing to use, never wear bare legs. i totally agree that the black hoses with the pink dress wasn't the best, but wouldn't go as far as saying "never use one again". black pantys can look extremely chic as well.

i definitely agree that marie has everything to become a fashion icon, such as mary. i believe she just needs some help with ideas and a new look. perhaps mary's stylist can also give her a hand considering her results with mary. marie has a nice ladylike figure, lovely hair and skin tone and her skin still looks fresh and healthy. i'd love to see what she would wear as a princess, for galas or official events if she were to become one.

Shall I change the title of this topic to "The Great Pantyhose Debate?"
Or shall we move on to discuss Marie Cavallier's fashion and style?
:biggrin:
Final word about this emotionally charged discussion that has nothing really to do with the topic:
I hate pantyhose whether nude or colored. Several people love their pantyhose, cannot live without them, and some may have even invested in the company Hanes because they love pantyhose so much. Lovely.
Let's move on shall we?:flowers:

This is my first post and I never thought I would be posting on The Great Pantyhose debate. I, myself, despise hose. I hate them. I avoid them whenever possible.

I am surprised that nobody has mentioned that Princess Diana made in chic in the mid '90s to go sans pantyhose. Before her tragic death, when, in my opinion, she was at the very height of her fashion she very rarely wore hose and had bare legs with heals. This looked very good on her.

I also thought that Marie's black hose with the pale pink outfit was not a good fit. I do realize that pink and black often go together but not the way she had it. I suppose I thought the black hose were a bit too harsh for the delicate colour.

And to answer a question from before, I think it was a coat dress but I wouldn't bet my life on it. I thought it was a bit ill fitting. Like the rest of you I think her fashion sense will evolve and it will be interesting to watch.

I think with abit of time marie would indeed be a fashion icon as prince's wife. as i said before she knows what is casual and what is formal. she has a fun style.

the pink jacket she recently wore, was a great choice, yes might have been somehow a copy but it was fun, not too formal nor casual

agapi 08-22-2007 02:30 PM

Marie has attended the copenhagen fashion show along with a friend. I find it natural to be intrested in fashion and from what I have seeen in videos and photos she is an elegant and confident person. If she becomes a princess, she will have not an problem becoming a fashion icon. By the way I don't want to imply anything, but Mary attended the copenhagen fashion show a year or so before marrying Fredeik.

hm..well from my male point of view i would say..as much as i looked at pictures of marie..she has a good style for dressing..tough i have to admit them iīmnot really a fashion expert..(i just have to categories..like it or donīt like it...kinda simple) so...
..and for the pantyhose thing...hm seems obvious that black and pink might not be the best combination to go..but iīve seen much worse things and combinations...so this is a matter of personal tast...
staying with personal taste: i have to say...that IMHO womens legs (to me) look much better when glad in hosiery...no matter which color, ultrasheer..nearly not visible or opaque...they make the legs look better give a much more even(overall) skin toneif used in tan colors...and a nice shape legs are simply highlited by them...if etiquette or not stays out of my knowlege..but in austria and i guess over the world too hosiery is used for events which hav kinda solemn character...so think this takes tooo long now..so i just cut..might get into a independent thread...otherwise..greetings to all

The white suit, I have no problems with (at least not in this picture)

But black shoes? If you are wearing all white, only white, the black looks stupid. She could wear most any other color shoe and look better.

Didn't Letizia Ortiz make the same "mistake" on her engagement day? :biggrin:
She also wore a white suit and black shoes.
That was the first thing that came into my mind when I saw the pictures.

Yes, correct. Letizia wore a pantsuit though. Not sure this one is a fitted costume? It looks like a jacket and a skirt. However the black shoes don't go with it and I will never understand why royal women chose a white outfit for their engagement day.

I think the black shoes goes weel with her white outfit as the buttons are black and she has got dark hair. If she was a blond it would look strange.

dazzling 10-03-2007 09:32 AM

Well, cant get everything right all the time, especially on your first day when millions of things are on your thought. I think the last thing Marie thought of was her shoes, and a very common mistake made by many women are black shoes with a white ooutfit.
I wonder what her bag color was? f it was black, than the shoes werent a bad mistake.

I like the suit, especially the skirt.
