  5. This is a beautiful picture. It shows her as a charming and lovely young lady. But what about her birthday present? Shall we collect money for a voucher for a tailor?

    1. A joke is a joke is a joke. Probably Stephanies well-known black slacks are a joke also.

    2. Just keep that in mind when someone tells a joke about the other royals ladies (Sofia included). After all, "A joke is a joke is a joke. "

    1. You make a good point @Grazia BUT I love fashion and want her to also! She probably doesn't give a hoot about fashion but she is a royal being covered on a fashion blog. This a lovely photo of a lovely royal.

  8. She is very lovely. No attack, just an observation. As the Hereditary Grand Duchess the world is watching. She represents her country and the Grand Ducal family. A stylist would help with her public appearances.

  10. Happy Birthday Princess Stephanie. You look lovely and radiant.

    And the snide comments are obviously made by people who were probably raised by wolves, since they demonstrate no manners or tasteful breeding.

    1. I wasn't raised by wolves. I have impeccable manners and my "breeding" is of course as impeccable as yours Virginia.

      I find that comment to be very rude dear. YOU are attacking people PERSONALLY. Which is not appropriate here. Be nice.

      Comments about Stephanie are directed at her style NOT her personal being. Therein lies the difference.

      Today is National Wine Day on America. Please have a glass and try to to nice. That comment was very much a smack.

      Where I come from that very comment is very much in poor taste and definitely not reflective of having manners OR breeding.

    2. I agree with you, Diane. That comment was rude.
      In the interests of good "manners" I shouldn't say more, but "tasteful breeding"???? What year are we in?
      I will join you in that glass of wine!

    3. Dear Virginia, you'll never know how much effort it took me to learn to typewrite with my four paws. Or to learn not to chase the "mouse" yummy yummy! Or to find a tailor who makes dresses suitable to my fur! Grrr...

  11. Good grief, Virginia Dogwood. What a vicious, nasty comment and personal attack on other posters. Your comments are much worse than any of the relatively mild and overwhelmingly supportive comments about Stephanie above.

    1. I so agree and I hope my comment to her is posted Pine. I am rather mad actually about that vile comment that certainly shows no manners or breeding.

      WOW Virginia that was so uncalled for here.

      Delete
    2. Yes, Diane. Just...well, you said it.
      And, just a small aside...wolves tend to be good parents to their offspring, as far as the wilderness allows. They also mate for life. No need to denigrate poor wolves.

    3. Agreed Pine! I happen to be passionate about wolves myself. Many hours spent picking up road kill for a sanctuary and fighting for their survival in the wild. They are very loyal to their pack and love their pups. Very much like us.

      They are above being denigrated.

  12. About Royal style... There is a very interesting post on http://queensconsortofengland.blogspot.com.au/2017/02/the-princess-expectation.html#more which it would be good for Princess Stephanie to read.

  13. She looks lovely here but I don't think its a recent portrait and we all wish she would look this way again.

  14. Very good picture, that green is lovely color to her.

  15. This is a reminder of how she used to look just before and just after the wedding. Quite lovely. It doesn't have a high maintenance look, so something that could be replicated easily, on days she's attending events. Bit of mystery as to why she doesn't want to look her best all the time !

  16. How lovely this photo is! I hope Stephanie had a truly happy birthday.
    Dear Virginia, if you follow this blog for a little you'll see most of the commenters here rather sympathise with Stephanie DESPITE from time to time noting some strange fashion habits of her and occasionally speculating about the origins of such fashion habits (or the lack of fashion, to be precise). No rudeness intended here! :)

  17. I try to refrain from criticizing a person's appearance but I have to admit when I saw this picture of Stephanie I immediately thought " I forgot how attractive she was". In saying that what I mean is that before the marriage, she seemed to take more care in her appearance and dress. Now I don't know what to say about her, I actually am a bit disappointed in both her and her husband ( appearance wise). They don't come across as "Royal" looking especially in the family that they belong to. I have yet to see a picture of the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess where they look less than totally put together.

  18. Lovely photo of Stephanie and at the risk of a full blown onslaught, I agree with Virginia. Many of the comments re. Stephanie on this blog are like wolves attacking a newly born lamb, they are very personal, rude and insulting (in my opinion) and would be very considered so, should Stephanie herself ever have the misfortune to read them.

    I won't comment on anyone in particular, but take for example one rude and ridiculous comment some time back, a comment that suggested Stephanie's sister-in-law would simply on looks be a better Hereditary Grand Duchess! How ridiculous, how insulting, how vacuous! In 2017 and particularly as women, we should not be so harsh on a young woman. Stephanie doesn't always dress perfectly, and she might not be "Princess perfect" but in REALITY we all know that fairy tales aren't real. Life isn't perfect. Life isn't always happy. The woman who was almost the epitome of the perfect princess, the Princess of Wales' life wasn't perfect and her life didn't end perfectly, in fact the pressure on Lady Diana to "look good" resulted in her developing eating disorder.

    Perhaps comments here could and would be better served being better thought through.

    1. All I will say is that Diana developed an eating disorder in her teens long before the pressure of being a Princess. Her parents divorce and her guilt (wrongly placed) that she was the fault for having been a girl caused the bulimia.

      It arose again with the unhappy marriage. Diana was struggling with the disorder due to stress and guilt and not so much the need to be perfect. It was bow she coped with being unhappy. While it is has been said that she lost much weight prior to the wedding due to an offhand remark Charles allegedly made about her weight that point has been denied repeatedly. He never said it. I always found that ridiculous given the fact that Camilla was a chunky women. I do not think Charles wanted a stick figure. But Diana stopped eating because of stress and worry. Oh and that her fiance was still shagging his old GF. Fact.

      As to the comments about someine saying the sister in law would be a better HGD? As I recall it had nothing to do w what Stephanie looked like but in that she behaves as if she doesn't care. No one body shamed. But her very sloppy attire reeks of indifference. The role requires elegance. Style and grace. Maybe that is a 19th century mentality but it is what it is w royal decorum. You do not see any of the other CPs, Queens,Princesses, Duchesses and Countesses dressing so badly. They all have misses but NOT ONE OF THEM GOES OUT WITH AN ELASTIC TIE IN THEIR HAIR. Yes in CAPS. That was the day I gave up on Stephanie.

      It is a fashion blog. I can call a spade ....a spade.

    2. Diane,

      I can and do call a spade a spade too (hence my comment), so I did and gladly so!

      I don't like bullies or bullying, even when I don't know the victim.

      Stephanie is treated appallingly in this blog! She is a well educated modern young women and it is up to her, her husband and her husband's family to define her role.

      What she wears is incidental to her role. She may have decided she does not want to be a fashion ambassador or maybe she is a fashion ambassador, her own style of fashion ambassador.

      As for Stephanie wearing an elastic tie in her hair, Crown Princess Mary, whom I consider very stylish has worn an elastic tie in her hair and looked fantastic doing so.

      It is the 21st century. Royal decorum has changed, particularly with the younger members of Royal families, I suggest you get with the times, skip over certain posts or just stick to following women such as Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. I am sure you would appreciate her style, dress code and decorum (Her Majesty, being more old school, 20th century, closer to the mentality you prefer).

      While I agree this is a fashion blog, some of the comments Stephanie receives are rude beyond belief and if the women making those comments received the same comments in their personal lives they would be mortified, because the comments aren't merely "like or not like the outfit" they are deeply personal comments to the point of being really rude and hateful. In fact this blog as developed a group of "Stephanie bashers".

      Thankfully Stephanie wouldn't give a damn that you (whoever you are) "gave up on her" as your opinion would be of no significance to her, her husband or the Grand Ducal Family.

      F.Y.I. - It is considered rude to type in CAPITAL letters, it is like shouting.

      Good day.

    3. Honestly - nobody in this blog is "hateful" or a "Stephanie -Basher" You really exagerate...

    4. She always carries on Coralie LOL
      Guess it is OK to bash another poster. She matters not to me. I don't care what she thinks or what Stephanie thinks and never have. Blog + fashion. "Whoever" she is ?
      I put it in caos because I was yelling about a elastic band. Was yelling about that NOT YOU "whoever you are dear".

      Thank you Coralie 😊 for the help. I generally avoid that person anyway. LOL

    5. You are right, Diane. Better avoid the person. I'll never understand why some women act like an eleven-year-old defending their best friend on the schoolyard.

  19. Best photo of Stephanie, in my opinion!
