  1. Pattern is interesting, I would have liked this dress without ruffles.

  2. I like Marie for a change has something in colour and with details on her dress.
    I think the author is a 'she' not a 'he' ????

  3. To me, this dress is the kind that you love - on the hanger - but it looks silly on you. Too much is going on with the ruffles and print and odd belt. It's like a child designed it and didn't know when to stop.

    1. K Hass - I agree! Far too fussy and it overwhelms her. (It might work for a garden party event or for something in the evening but not for this.)

  4. Talk about retro. I made dresses exactly like this style(different color)for my twins 6th grade chorus concert. They are now 42 years old.

  8. I think Marie looks great and I like her ruffles more than Charlotte Casiraghi's shiny PRADA pyjama!
    But why so few pics from this event …… Paris Match shows many more ?
