  1. This is quite an improvement! I like the dress (dress!!), the shoes seem nice and her hair looks better.

  2. Much better! Yay! They both look more put together! I am not sute the stripes are placed well for her but she looks nice. The first picture is very good. She looks relaxed.

  3. Seriously? Is she purposely buying ill-fitting clothes. That coat is at least two sizes too big. How can a woman be this clueless about her own body? She doesn't have to be stylish but any grown woman should know when a piece of clothing fits and when it doesn't. I'm shaking my head hard.
    I will give her credit for the dress. I see nothing wrong with it. It looks ok on her, good fit, appropriate length.
    I hate comparing royal women with one another but it's going to be very interesting to see how she dresses when Kate makes her visit to Luxembourg in May.

    1. Oh yes Chelsea that visit just might spark her to make a change. Or not ;)

    2. Only time will tell Diane. I'm hoping she'll step out and wow us. It's going to be a very publicized visit with lots of photographers because Kate will be there. I'm one to admit that I'm not Kate's biggest fan, but I'm rooting for Stephanie to step it up because I'm sure she knows that there will be lots of attention on her and Luxembourg.

    3. I like do like Kate BUT I would love to see Stephanie looking put together and confident. If she wears those black slacks or those too small jackets I will lose it 😂

      She doesn't need to compete but this is going to much more on the world stage. We know she can dress well because she did prior to marriage.

      We shall see

    4. Oh geesh I just noticed the sleeves on the coat. Good grief. This shows poor planning or lack of care. She knew about the trip in advance and still just didn't have the coat altered? Smh

  4. Both the Duke and Duchess could use a professional stylist. The clothing colors, materials and poor fit don't help them put their best foot forward. When you are in their positions, and a public figure, your clothing style sends a message.

  5. This dress is much better than the black pants. And she looks engaged. Very red color of Guillaume's face is a bit concerning. I hope it does not indicate any health issues.

  6. If you are on the chubby side, stay away from broad horizontal stripes. Her posture is bad as always and his red face is frightening.

    1. I have wondered if he has high blood pressure or even Cushings Syndrome.

    2. Yes, Diane. I've definitely thought of high blood pressure. He really is not a healthy-looking person.

    4. Pin ,l'hypertension à son âge ? De toutes façons cela se contrôle trés bien.Je pense plutôt à un problème dermatologique.

    5. Probably he is very shy and flushes when being photographed?

    6. I don't think so Coralie...it is a deeper red than just being nervous or embarassed. He has physically changed much over the last few yrs. His face is rounder. Stomach is like a beer gut. He looks swollen sometimes. I hope it is nothing serious but he looks unwell to me. Of course it could be many things and I hesitate to mention some thoughts. Don't need the polizia on me. The nurse in me ...wonders. then again they say he cooks alot and maybe he is just fat. 😕

    7. Diane stop it and take a breath. You cannot make diagnoses just after few photos. High blood pressure very seldom shows up as redness in face. Also it is no job of you as a nurse to make any diagnoses at all, even if you had enough information what you do not have.

    8. I agree with you blondiini...this thing of the "Red face" has become uselessly repetitive by now.

      Delete
    9. I suppose you are right Blondini. Hard not to wonder .... it is kind of my biz LOL 🤔😜 Happy Easter

      Ignoring the other person 👎🚔

    10. Just one thing Blondiini ~ Nurse Practioners do make diagnoses. So I have not stepped out of my jurusdiction 🤗

      But I respect you and your views so I am taking that breath :)

  7. I like that dress, it is right length, lets her legs shine and color is nice. She has such a nice legs. But the coat, again something what you would never believe to see used as official engagement by royal woman. The coat is just shabby and shapeless.

  8. wow...no black trousers.... she looks much better in that dress. no comment regarding the coat

  9. At long last she's looking lovely.

  10. Fashion aside, they always look happy and relaxed together. Nothing phony about them.

    2. I get a weird sibling vibe from them too Romana. They seem happy and relaxed with each other but it's like in a platonic way. Something is odd about them.

    3. Well..if i am the police how should we call you? Marriage counselor? Or psychiatrist? No, that fits better for the "dianebrown"...frankly, judging people mental state from the measurements of a dress is a bit too much...take off your white coat, this isnt the right place.

    5. Hahaaa really Grazia Xx, you waited 3 whole days and on a completely different post to reply to a comment I made. It must have really had you fuming. And yes I stand by what I said, you do try and police people's comments on here. Rather you like it or not this is a FASHION BLOG, which means we have the right to critique someone's outfit.
      Really it's not that serious, and you should calm down.

      No one here is wearing a "white coat" because more than one reader picks up a strange vibe about Stephanie and Guilliame or whoever. It's called an opinion. Why don't you hop off that high horse of yours it must be cold up there. But hey I'll let you borrow my white coat if you need it.
      Happy Easter!

    6. You and few other people on this blog are not talking about fashion, but you are attacking people on these pictures suggesting they have mental illnesses or behaving insanely,as if they where not a real couple. Can you explain us What has this to do with fashion??? Is the purpose of this blog to discuss about the different kinds of style among royals or is it just one more bad way to express one's frustrations? There are many people here who write their opinion in a polite way, but those few who only think they have a "right to criticise" frankly spoil this place. Happy Easter to you too.

    7. Grazia this will be my last comment to you.
      You nor do I, have the right to tell people how they are allowed to comment. Yes this is a fashion blog but sometimes it turns into comments about other topics. As any blog does. I only see you coming on here to complain about other posters. What is that going to solve? Stop being the comment police and pretending like you're trying to make this blog better.

      If you dont like my comments or any other posters, ignore and move on. Simple. If you feel like we "spoil this place" then stop reading. But you can't control other people's word's. Honestly, it's the internet. Not that big of a deal. Get over yourself.

    8. Chelsea your words let us think that the policy at the bottom of this page is a mere formality since as you explain to me, "its the internet" and each of us can write whatever. Not a big deal? It depends. There are specific laws that have been created to rule the web.Each one will tale his /her own responsibility. Bye.

  11. Here we go again to the extraterrestrials! Nonprofit of course.
    Well, first of all Guillaume needs to lower his blood pressure; I guess. And for his young wife, where to start with fashion? Is there really nobody available to give her a fresh make-over? It is a pity.

  12. Has nobody noticed that all Stephanies illfitting clothes belongs either to Marie-Therese, Alexandra or Tessy. Very Little is hers.

    1. That's not true. Where did you pick up that rubbish?

    2. This would explain something. Because I thought the black coat above cannot be hers, it is so bvously two numbers to big, I mean nobody could have sold it to her. I was thinking, she did not have a coat with her for some reason and somebody gave ot to her because of the cold weather, but then again it does not look that cold, the gentlemen wear open shirts and jackets. So she could have done with a blazer too.

      Maybe she lent it from Marie-Therese? But why?? How does this work in the family? Does this mean Stéphanie refuses to buy clothes? And before the visit to USA Marie-Theres comes to her and says, dear, you don't have a coat, take mine....???? The whole thing gets stranger and stranger. And I start to think that something with this couple is not right. I start to feel embarrassed simply to look at the pictures, and don't feel like commenting on fashion here anymore, because their appearance is so weird.I sense some really unhealthy vibes from this uncharismatic couple.
      Sorry for my clear words, but I am on this blog to have fun with fashion themes. With these two I am done, I am out.

    3. I hear you Beth! There is something very off with these two. It makes me awkward with each post. I look at the photos and I almost feel like we should not be looking? Hard to explain. I don't know if it is the dismay at seeing a person contibue to slide into GrandMa Moses or bag lady panhandling on the corner look? Or my thoughta that these two have perhaps serious health issues on the mental health side?

      They have done an interview w Paris Match and the bits I read or at least was shared made me think they are probably the most boring and indifferent duo I have ever seen. She likes the arts and old people. But it read like shw would like to "do something w those interests ...someday". He does attend meetings regarding the law and the country. They are both flat and dull. He is not looking good to me. She continues to not look good either. Maybe they bonded because they share some issues? The article bits talked about how they are a team? Where? In a dark closet?

      As to clothes and this coat. I find it hard to believe she cannot buy her own clothes. Or that she does not have a coat. Luxembourg has Winter and cold days. Rainy days. It is all so odd. I cannot imagine them as the head of the family. Not at all! They have had more than enough time to be presentable and represent their country.

    4. Diane and Beth, Regina can easily be proven wrong just by doing a little Google search. I didn't find a single picture of Alexandra wearing the same outfit as Stephanie, and I'm sure it's the same for Maria Teresa and Tessy. By the way, neither Alexandra nor Tessy live in Luxembourg.
      As for the marriage of G and S, I seriously think that it has been a fake from the beginning. Have a look at one of the engagement videos. The way he rubs her back makes me creep, as if she is a dog or a horse. I've never ever seen a young man caressing his sweetheart that way.

      Delete
    5. Yes, Beth and Diane I noticed too something is happening with those two, they express some kind of uneasiness, discrepancy - I don't know how to explain. Like really something isn't going in their way in their lives. I hope they'll have energy to put it on the wright side.

      Look how pretty she is here? That dress and color is magnifique on her and her hair! She is poised and elegant.

      Yes I know she is little heavier but that doesn't mean you let yourself go!

      She had style and looked very sharp for many yrs. I don't know what happened but I do not think it is a lack of interest in clothes. It is something else.

      Still looking for the video you saw Romana. ..

    7. Yes, Diane, how sad is it to see these pictures of Stéphanie during her engagement time and before compared to what we see from her now. Sad and disturbing. This is only a few years ago, what has happened to her?

      Look at these beautiful portraits
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Z_mrMnus6k
      A beautiful young lady, graceful and charming, stylish and elegant, good choice of clothes, beautiful hair and makeup, even her posture and the way she held herself was much better, maybe a little shy but still happy, relaxed and confident.
      And compare it with the photo above, with that obnoxious thing of a coat, looking older than her grandmother, chubby and frumpy, hair not made, no makeup, bloated face, a forced smile....if you know anything about life, then you know things have gone wrong for her in the last five years, very wrong, I feel sorry for her.
      Normally the years before marriage and the first years of marriage are the best years in a woman's life, this is the time when the beauty of a woman blooms and blossoms and she gets more confident and finds her place in life....when,... well when!! she is happy. And this woman is certainly not.
      P.S. when people start to neglect themselves and don't care anymore about their appearance, what they wear, don't even bother anymore to get their hair done, or their nails, or are to tired to do a little workout....this is normally considered as a serious sign of depression. I do hope that she has people around her who really care.

      P.P.S. and for those who come up, that we can't judge only from photos, of course not, it would be much better do get a personal impression. But for those who can read them, photos tell a lot.

    8. I think this couple is much under pressure, as Guillaumes younger brother (sorry, I don't know his name) and his very beautiful wife (Claire) already have two children and are very polished and glamorous. Perhaps the "weird" appereance of Stephanie and Guillaume is a kind of act of defiance?

      Delete
    9. Coralie, it may well be that the pressure of having children is affecting Stéphanie or both. But we live in the 21st century and should not sacrifice personal lives to an idea of succession. If Guillaume and Stéphanie will not have children, they can still serve their country as representatives, and somebody else from the familys next generation can follow, nephew or niece or whoever. Or maybe Luxembourg will decide to rather have an elected president to represent the country. Things can change :-))
      Fertility issues - if it is the case here, what we don't know - can affect a woman or a couple very much. But we all face challenges in life and still have to deal with it. Giving up and neglecting oneself is not a solution.

    10. I didn't see pictures of Stephanie from time before and after her wedding till today, as you talked about them, and I'm shocked how charming, happy and inlove she looked, some of her dresses I liked very much. I thought she was allways like this, like on these pictures above.What on Earth happened here?

      Delete
    11. No clue Masha

      That is why so many of us are kind of stuned at her change. It is NOT personal attacks but rather what is going on here? She was very chic most of the time. Again she has fashion sense as pics show she did. So it is more than not caring about clothes JMHO

  13. Today I like her dress and hair😊. Well done Stephanie!

    And this! Look at these images MANY 174. See those deep red shoes? Someone who doesn't care about clothes doesn't wear those! Her hair. Her expressions.

    Something has been lost here I think.

    Oy

    I want to see this lovely young woman. She is so engaged here. She has a happy smile. Warmth is there.

    Somthing has gone amiss

  15. It seems this couple are stuck in a bit of a rut ! We've all seen the photos of them both before and after the wedding, and we see them now, and it's not difficult to see there's a stark contrast in their appearance! For Stephanie to embark on a foreign trip, and look like she's just thrown a few items of clothing in an overnight bag, seems wrong somehow! These visits aren't a last minute decision, they're usually months in the planning, giving her time to co-ordinate wardrobe jewellery and accessories. Unfortunately there seems little evidence of any planning here !
    It would be interesting to know what the Luxembourg press make of it ! You can but imagine, the uproar if that had been any other royal lady, she'd have been hauled over the coals, by the press, for not making the effort !
