I love Marie's top. It's elegant and unique with the jeweled choker collar.
It would best be worn with black palazzo pants or an A-line or pencil skirt.
I think the very wide taffeta ball skirt overwhelms her petite frame. Too much heavy fabric for a petite person.
Also such a heavy, voluminous skirt looks strange in tea length - like it shrank in the wash.
The design requires height - either a tall wearer or a floor length skirt.
Marie's updo isn't flattering on her. It's too severe for her age.
There's no way I would buy Mary's gold-embellished coat even if I could afford the $2K price tag. She looks geriatric in that outfit.
I much prefer Marie's cheaper outfit even if it isn't perfect.
I think Margrethe and Benedikte both are better (and more youthfully) dressed than Mary and I bet their outfits each cost less than Mary's coat.
Mary’s doing that ankle jiggle she does around classier women she feels awkward with or doesn’t like.
And poor Marie only ever looks stressed when she’s thrown into frame with Mary.
I'd like Mary's sheer trench coat much more, if the embellishments had ended at the waist. The ones on the sleeves are too much.
I like Marie's skirt and top very much, just not together. The top, even with the crystal neck, seems too heavy for the skirt.
I don't understand why either woman would wear black (which looks so severe) to a Springtime event, on a boat no less. I know there are no rules when it comes to fashion anymore but black still seems like a fall/winter color to me.
