  1. Overall I like it but it's a risky dress with the seeming shapeless look of the fabric's design. Hard to define her figure. But she polishes it off well with the bag and shoes. I love the top and its color on her. Overall good, but again, a tricky design to make work. It's daring, polished.

  3. I think it's a disaster of a dress for her. It just doesn't suit her, and it looks cheap and shiny. It may be that the dress needs a person with a darker complexion. But it is does no favours for Mathilde. - Ellie

  4. Joli modèle en satin imprimé qui convient toujours à Mathilde ; en effet, le satin est un tissu difficile à porter car il peut mettre en exergue les défauts d'une silhouette... Petite pochette et escarpins assortis de la même couleur Bordeaux !

  6. It looks like they are all keeping a distance in the photos, due to the COVID-19, I guess. A beautiful dress.

    1. I noticed that too! Very possible and not a bad idea.

  7. It's interesting but, I'm not sure it fits well around the mid section.
    The bag and shoes do go well with it. What I really like about here is that her makeup is so natural.

  8. It’s a gorgeous dress but I’m not sure it’s all that flattering to Q. Mathilde’s figure. The lighter print across the hips accentuates the width there. What beautiful colours though. (V.M.)

  9. I love the dress, the colours and the fabric pattern. Not sure that it's the right dress for Mathilde, the way it fits on her, but she accessorizes it well with the purse and shoes.

  10. A very colorful dress. Q Mathilde looks good wearing it.

  11. The neckline is odd, then maybe it was just not quite fitted right, it makes her look lopsided somehow, which makes the dress look odd as well.... JT

  12. Its a beautiful dress, I think the Queen wears it as best she can. Love her accessories, her shoes and bag are the perfect choice.

  14. I don't think all this is very responsible. We have a lockdown in parts of Europe, for heaven's sake, precisely because nobody thoght to reduce the transmission rate of corona virus by encouraging (or enforcing) social distancing.If the monarch can't be bothered take part in mitigating measures, why should the people be bothered to help?
