Today's version of the coat is far superior to that of it's 2008 incarnation. I think, as others have stated, that Mary has found a terrific seamstress, and the alterations are very flattering.2008
I personally like it better in yesterday's version, without the collar. I thought Mary looked splendid thanks to the outfit, apart from the hair and those fussy shoes, what an ugly pair.
In this case I think removing the collar made a great difference and the coat seems a little more fitted, But I still love the delightful nonsense that is the shoes.
I also agree with many other posters that this occasion called for a really fabulous up do. Mathilde's was amazing.
