Wow, this is truly awful. Is that a modesty patch sewn in at the very last second when the zipper was already closed?  Yikes BTW the zipper sure is under lots of pressure.  Sweating Sweating
...


 Blink Yikes Blink

Not for modesty - imho a patch added because she didn't fit in any longer without such a patch (I guess the zipper went a bit higher previsouly).
Seriously - I appreciate that she wants to recycle even dresses not longer her size, but if THIS is how she does it ... NO.
What tailor does that that way and thinks it's OK for a Grand Duchess to enter a church on National Day with all eyes on her back ...?
And how she thought it's OK to wear that also totally escapes me.

Since thereís a patch in the back because it canít be zipped up all the way, the seamstress should have added something like a drapery at the back to hide it. They could have used the same fabric as the one in MTís sleeves. The drapery would have matched the flow the design of her dress sleeves.

Good find.  Thumb up Star
Mind blowing that no one dares to talk her out of this dumb idea. I mean which self-respecting seamstress would do this to a dress by choice?  Yikes Crazy

Itís ranks among the most horrible outfits worn by a royal woman to date IMO. Mostly because itís incredible that it wasnít fitted properly for her. At that price you would expect that. It also looks very, very good from the front. Itís almost obscene with such a poor fitting for such a dress (and event!).

When I was over 20ish I actually bought my own clothes... my parents paid before that but I was not a poor relative in terms of recycled tat .... my mother would have been so embarrassed if I turned up in her cast offs
Indeed. MT almost always turns up in new clothes for mayor events, while Alexandra and Stephanie wear her hand me downs and they rarely look good in them. Gives a strange impression imo.

MT's teeth look different, whiter and straighter. Did she get veneers?
It looks like something has been done. Her smile is different.

Wow ... so she bought that NEW from Lanvin and could not bring this French Luxury Label to make it fit properly for her with a 15 cm higher back?

That is even worse than having someone amatuerishly patching an old dress for sizing reasons ...

It looks like the sleeves have been altered too.  Confused Wondering what the house of Lanvin thinks about that. Crazy

It actually looks as though the patch is a different fabric to that in the dress - slightly different colour and texture.  And the very visible stitches...  Nerves

That brooch Stephanie was wearing is just fabulous!  Wonderful against red.

Would have been better if she used similar to the translucent fabric from the sleeves as an illusion back and go up to the collar,  than this cheap fabric patch.

She should've just bought the right size and not altered it in this horrible manner.

It was probably not available in the right size and the original shows a back that is too low cut for such an event. So she let somebody put in a modesty patch and this ruined the dress and made it look as if she is bursting out of it. I don't think she realized how bad it looks from behind and she clearly wasn't herself during the event. She and Henri even forgot to bow at the altar when they left church. Pics from today's garden party are available, so far I only saw MT and Henri.

It was entirely amateurish, and MT should know better by now.  This family has a preternatural ability to make any outfit frumpy, but this was special.

It was way too small to begin with, as evidenced by visible rolls around the modesty patch. The alterations were badly done and turned a bad choice into a horrible choice.

I wonder how Alexandra will look in it later?

Thanks for all the pictures .  Star
Good grief! Her forced smile doesn't show in her eyes. It must be painful after a time.  Sad

Well there must be sth going on. Linus and Gui didn't attend any of the garden parties and at least Linus has no excuse not to go. Claire didn't attend the National Day at all and Felix left before the Te Deum. Henri and MT seemed to cling onto each other for dear life. They all seemed very tense during the whole event and MT and Henri even forgot to bow to the altar after church. I think this is not because GD Jean passed away, there seems to be sth else going on.
