  1. Meghan´s dressed too dark, both for summer and for a wedding.
    Eugenie looks like she´s wearing goggles and a (ripped) slip for a dress.

  2. The crowd were singing happy birthday to her.

  3. Easy summer dress in a light-weight fabric that moves well with colors that do not detract from the bride. The fascinator can move easily into Fall.

  4. Warum sagt ihr denn niemand , dass bei Hochzeiten keine dunkle Farben üblich sind ??

    1. Frag ich mich auch. War letzten Monat auf zwei Hochzeiten und konnte Feststellen, dass sehr viele Frauen dunkelblaue Kleider trugen. Das "kleine schwarze" für Hochzeiten, nur dass es nicht schwarz ist? Ich weiß nicht, warum derzeit so viele Gäste dunkelblau Kleider zu Hochzeiten tragen.

    2. Weil dunkelblaue Farbe sehr schicke und elegante Farbe ist. Und außerdem - wenn Männer schwarze Anzüge tragen, warum dürfen dann Frauen keine dunkle Farben benutzen. Wir sind doch im 21. Jh. Hier wird berichtet aus dem 19 Jahrhundert.

    3. Helle , freundliche Kleidung ist nun einmal für Hochzeiten , Taufen etc. passend und besonders in der Royal Family ist schwarz zu solchen Angelegenheiten ein absolutes No Go ! Prinzessin Eugenie hat ein bezauberndes und vor allem richtiges hellblau gewählt !!

    4. Meghan war bunt angezogen in Navy, nicht schwarz und hören Sie mit Eugenie auf, sie war peinlich angezogen und sie selber war bei Pippas Hochzeit in Navy angezogen und sehen Sie sich die Bilder von Royal-Hochzeiten an, dann sehen Sie, wieviele Leute dunkelblaue Farbe bevorzugen. Und nochmal - wir sind im 21. Jahrhundert und sollten auch moderner denken. Was für Sie NO GO ist, ist für andere TOP und für mich war Meghan SUPER angezogen.

  5. Happy birthday, Meghan. The dress is nice on the Duchess but too dark, IMO, for a summer wedding. Eugenie's dress is a bit bland. The bride looks amazing and joyously happy 😀

  6. Oh, that's a very disappointing look on Meghan. Too somber for a wedding and not very attractive overall. The shirt with the cap sleeves and the thick belt are too casual. The shoes are pretty but the hat is ho-hum. Would love to have a better look at Eugenie's dress. Her sunglasses are very strange.

    1. Shoes are pretty, I agree, but too formal for the dress. This is not a well-curated outfit, to me - I don't understand how or why the hat goes with the dress, the dress with the shoes, etc. The clutch stands out to me as perfect for an afternoon wedding. But it is a bit disappointing if one's handbag is the high point of the ensemble! This is not to omit a wonderful happy birthday to the DOS!!

  8. Horrible Dress for a wedding in the summer. Eugenie looks great though.

  9. I have read that the main color of Meghan's dress is navy, but it certainly looks like black in these photos, and while I don't necessarily subscribe to strict rules about color for summer, I have to agree that black does seem odd at a summer wedding. The dress is very visually dramatic -- however, it just doesn't quite work and I'm not sure why. Maybe it is something about proportion, or too much of a disconnect between the darker and lighter areas on the dress, or both. If there were a bit of one of the lighter values at the shoulder, imo the effect would be more balanced and attractive. And I finally love something that Eugenie is wearing! The light blue dress skims her body flatteringly and has an understated elegance. Eugenie often looks uncomfortable in her clothes, but that is not the case here.

  10. I'm ok with Meghans dress, but she did better before.

    The bride looks fantastic, her dress is very nice. I like the flowers on her dress, matching her name, Daisy.

    Eugenie.. omg.. sorry, but that's a horrible outfit. awful dress, not fitting, no shape, stupid cutouts, and the glasses.. omg...

  11. Liked this look on Meghan. Although it is partly a darker colour, the accent colours and the lightweight fabric make it a lovely look for this event. I’m wondering if she was trying for a slightly understated look so as not to detract from the bride’s special day.

    1. Elce I thought the same like you about understatement but didn't know how to explain that in english. So I agree with you on this thought :-)

  12. The bride looks like Alicia Vikander, and her dress is simply wow!! Does anyone know who is the designer?

  13. I like Meghan's dress, but not for a wedding. The headpiece does not coordinate well with the sunglasses. But the bride... her dress, flowers...what a beauty!!

    1. I am not well versed on hats. Are hats and fascinators supposed to coordinate with not only an outfit, but all the accessories such as shoes, handbag, and sunglasses? If so, what do the average ladies do if they do not have a large wardrobe of sunglasses to choose from? For instance, mine are prescription. I could never afford a dozen pairs for all occasions.

  14. Yes, the dark color blocks were too dark for a summer wedding (but I know others who wouldn't have an issue), but the dress wasn't too casual. I checked other sites for photos and movies and some guests were wearing sundresses. For some reason I'm more bothered by Eugenie's look. She took her jacket off and it was much a better look with the jacket. She looks like she's gone without a bra and the dress looks to have open flaps on the sides just below the bust. The skirt is split on both sides and in one movie I could see midriff skin on the side. I just thought she looked odd (with the goggle sunglasses) and a bit sloppy.

    1. Totally agree with everything you said about Eugenie. Those flaps are so weird.

    2. Linda M., I had the same thoughts about the other dresses at the wedding. Meghan's dress provided more coverage than many of the other guest's dresses. I noticed the sundresses and a strapless dress, too. As far as the style of the dress, it was very appropriate as this didn't appear to be a terribly formal event. As for the color, navy has always been acceptable for spring and summer, but I understand the concerns about the dark color. Having the color blocks at the bottom, plus the fact that that the fabric is so light, does make this quite acceptable. The "fashion rules" that applied at one time are simply outdated now. It is just very difficult to change out ways. Eugenie's dress fit right in with many of the other dresses in terms of coverage. I haven't seen a really good view of this dress, just random shots. She probably wore the jacket in the church and removed it after the wedding. I have a feeling I won't mind it very much. As for the sunglasses, they can't be that big a deal! They are just sunglasses. Fun sunglasses for a fun, happy wedding.

    2. I agree, wonderful choice. And most importantly, she wasn’t stealing the limelight. In that case there would be hundreds of comments her being too flashy, tacky etc. Meghan is lovely. Eugenie did well too.

  16. Its lovely dress but not the best place to wear because it looks too dark and gloomy for the summer wedding, especially teamed with that black hat/facinator. The bride's dress and veil look dreamy. Perhaps hair up would have been better.

  17. La robe de la mariée est vraiment belle!... Je n'aime pas la robe de Meghan: trop sombre pour un mariage et en plus en été...

  18. As opposed to some other comments, I dont like the bride's outfit even a bit. Her hair looks totally unkempt, the strapless bodice seems to slide down the front of her small torso, her petite frame, any minute, and the gown itself has nothing to wow me. The only thing I very much like are her flowers, her bouquet. I'm surprised to find me liking Eugenie's outfit a lot. As for the DoS, I see her as her usual self, right, but maybe would have liked the dress better if the collar/the neckline had been different and not so much reminded me of a business outfit.

  19. Meghan just never gets it quite right. The dress itself is nice but the ensamble looks weird. Additionally she flashed her bra, look at the pictures in DM.

  20. I also agree with Anna B in reference to Eugenie.

  21. I think Meghan's dress is a miss, although she wears it well.

  22. Looks like one of Fergie's old "horror frocks". Honestly, Meghan needs a stylist.

  23. Stunning wedding dress. I like Meghan's dress just not for a wedding. Eugenie's dress I like, a nice colour.

  24. Meghan - mmmmmm....maybe not appropriate for a wedding? not a great dress.
    Eugenie - is she even wearing a bra? come on, you got grannie's boobs, support them appropriately!

  25. The dresss is not so bad, but definitely too dark for a summer wedding, we all know that she likes neutral colors but for a summer wedding she could try something else. Two weddings so far and not good outfits.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I don't love Meghan's look - nothing to do with the dress which I quite like - but we're in the middle of a heatwave here and it looks strange to me in all that bright light amongst the summer dresses.

    I think Eugenie looks good - the colour is beautiful and I like the style.

  27. The lovely bride has a lovely gown, but she completely ignored her hair. Not styled at all! Not at all! Perfect for a grocery run, but not for a bride in a formal gown and wedding.

  28. Megan looks wonderful. Lovely summer evening dress. She is not an English Rose. Let’s not try to make her match every other wedding gueat’ style. That’s not who she is. That’s not who Harry chose to be his wife. She is a wonderful, warm and genuine woman and that comes across. Style is how you wear an outfit and she wears this one just great. Love her dearly for staying true to herself.

    PS : check the fabric on Club Monaco’s site before you judge how summery it is. Some of that fact-based information may prove useful.. :)

  29. I like Eugenie's. The color is perfect on her. Meghan's dress is a bit too dark but it is a beautiful dress that suits her very well. The shoes are well coordinated with th dress but not the hat. The clutch is ok. The sunglasses are beautiful but not the same style as the whole outfit. Harry is elegant, as usual, happiness suits him very well. The bride is so WOW. The dress is simple but very elegant. They look so adorable!
