    5. I agree with the responders. Horrible thing to comment about her weight. Maybe she likes the extra pounds and doesn't want to lose the weight. Ever think of that? It's her body to do with as she likes. Not your business to decide what is a good shape for her.

    8. @Anonymous9/19/20, 8:10 PM i cannot understand that women who have more weight wear dresses like that (without sleeves). it's no problem for me that you have gained weight during pregnancy but you can dress a little more to the situation.

      Delete
    9. You may be right from a technical point of view - losing weight is hard for very many people in very different stages of life -, but telling a new mother that she needs to lose weight is just very judgemental and unkind. It can be such a difficult time for women, maybe we can just focus on their personalities and not their looks during early babyhood of their kids.

      Delete
    10. The issue for me is not Stephanie's weight; it's just that she should perhaps not be wearing such a tight dress.

    11. @Anon 8:10 You are rude! Do not come here and body shame a woman that has just given birth a few months ago. You will not get support. Your comments are disgusting. Leave this woman in peace to enjoy her child.

      @Iris There is nothing wrong with Stephanie wearing a sleeveless dress because she has gained some weight. Some may argue that the sleeveless dress was not quite appropriate inside the church, but you went to her weight. She does not have any excess skin sagging or flapping. That is the time women think about covering their arms.

      Delete
    12. Unfortunately that is very true, it’s not easy to lose pregnancy weight, but all in good time. She has a baby to enjoy and focus on now. The best thing one can do, is choose outfits that are flattering to a (temporary) larger figure. Be kind, this is real life and she’s a real person. LadyM

  10. What an absolutely beautiful baby!! And what a wonderful day for Stephanie and Guillaume. They look so happy and proud.

    Princess Claire's dress is lovely, but I think it would be more attractive if it were a bit shorter. I like below-the-knee, just not so very far below the knee (similar to my feelings about the pretty dress Catherine wore recently at a bakery). On a day dress, a skirt length that is closer to the ankle than to the knee risks looking a bit dowdy, imo.

  20. I love how there is a colour scheme for both the families. Yellow/Orange for the Nassaus (I'm guessing because it is the colour of their Order and Charles is the heir) and floral pattern for the de Lannoys! Also, fashion-wise, Charles is the winner. Who can compete with those cheeks after all?

    1. Well yes, the color scheme is a very good idea. Stephanie and Guillaume have the very proud look/glow of new parents, so lovely to see! Prince Charles is still a very cute baby. Love the christening gown. Felix and Claire still look very much in love also.

      I love it when I see royal families glowing like this. It shows that they are, before royal, first and foremost just normal families who care for each other too.

  23. Looks like a very low-key event, I´m sure it was scaled down due to corona restrictions and would have normally been a lot more high-profile given that Charles is second-in-line to the throne.
    Anyway, everybody looking happy, and I actually like this looking like a private family occasion rather than a state affair. Fashionwise though, I find it very disappointing. I don´t like much of what I see. Best dressed to me is the (pregnant?) lady in the green dress with the white coat. In the ducal family, the ladies all look off for various reasons, but I do like the colour coordination with yellow as a recurring theme.
    Stephanie looks very happy which is great to see. She is clearly still carrying baby-weight and that is totally fine this short after giving birth. I would comment though that given the baby weight, her dress was a poor choice.
    Charles is a cute baby and looking alert yet calm.

  24. Is Princess Claire pregnant again? Where is Princess Alexandra? Sebastian is a hottie, liked his hair with the blonde streaks in the Austrian wedding photo a few days ago. Everyone looks relaxed, enjoying a happy family celebration, looks like dress code (if there was one) was casual chic. Would have been nice to get a simple listing of the godparents.

    1. I thought the same, and I don't understand why to be so tough, as here above, on Stephanie's shoes, not the hottest but to me ok. Claire has probably taken spare shoes for indoors parts of the event.

  26. Love the colour coordination of the dresses in the family photo. Cannot understand Grand Duchess Maria Theresa's casual white trouser suit for this formal occasion. It's nice enough in it's own right but for the christening of the heir to the Luxembourg throne, just no!. Don't think Princess Claire's dress does anything for her at all--it's too long and not helped by the ugly flat shoes. As said above, Princess Stephanie seems to be struggling to lose her baby weight, which is fair enough but she can disguise this with ore flattering outfits. having said that, this dress is 100% better than the one she wore at the wedding of Prince Henri and Archduchess Gabriella last week. The outfits worn by the de Lannoy family are much better than those of the royal family with the with Countess Luisa de Lannoy being the best of the day in my opinion.

  30. Stephanie and her husband look so content and happy. Stephanie's hair was well styled, her dress suited her in her new motherhood. The baby was composed and attentive to everything going on around him, an absolute darling. The sister in law's dress was appropriate for the occasion, though her shoes looked too casual. The mother in law, Maria Teresa's suit was not appropriate in color, fit, or style. Her makeup looked over the top, just "too much." The rest of the group looked relaxed and enjoying the occasion. May blessings be upon the new family and their son.

    1. Maria Teresa's suit was appropriate for the event. Nothing wrong with the colour or it being a suit instead of a dress. In contrast, Stephanie should have worn sth else, the dress she wore was at least 2 sizes too small and had no sleeves, not exactly a dress for an event in a church.

    2. No, the Grand Ducal Palace in Lux City is their office so to speak. Henri and MT live in Colmar-Berg, Guillaume and Stephanie in Fischbach.
      Claire and Felix live in Germany or at their vineyard in Southern France.

      This orange-yellow does nothing for Stephanie, that colour is for dark brunettes, it works so much better for Amalia, Claire and the two models.
      Look at the colours of her sister Gaëlle's dress (the godmother). Each single colour of that floral print would look stunning on Stephanie.
      The baby is too cute for words and it is great to see his parents so very happy.

    3. The Grand Duke and Grand Duchess live in Berg Castle, Prince Guillaume and Princess Stephanie in Fishbach Castle.

    4. The answer is a very simple "No". The Grandduke and his wife live at Chateau Berg, the Hereditary couple lives at Fischbach Manor, Prince Felix and Princess Claire do live in the South of France, as far as I know. The Grandducal Palace in Luxembourg City is only used for representative purposes, and mainly not for living. Prince Louis is divorced from Tessy de Nassau, but they both hold custody for their children and they once were based in London, so this still might be valid. Prince Sebastien and Princess Alexandra could be living at Chateau Berg as well, as they are unmarried.

    6. Because when you have a precise question, go to sources which know the right answer, and not guessing or out of date info etc.. A reasonable approach is to look on the website of the royal families where the info is reliable! And limit questions to facts and not gossiping.

    7.

In the spirit of friendly discussion, you know. If it doesn't interest you ignore, instead of policing perfectly innocent questions that were asked in a totally civil way!

  41. Sleeveless dresses are not suitable for a Catholic church for baptism. Stephanie's dress doesn't flatter her at all. Open toe pumps are not nice and should be worn on the bare foot. Her jewelry doesn't match each other - what's that weird neck strap? The hair looks matronly.
    PS: To all who are going to accuse me of being a terrible person, because I am critical of new mother's outfit: This is - so far- a fashion blog, I evaluate fashion from my point of view, not the character of a person. I wish Stephanie good luck, she is definitely a nice and kind person.

    Replies
    1. I don’t think you are a terrible person, and your fashion points are valid. I do disagree with your statement about short sleeves on a catholic ceremony, I am catholic, I attend mass, funerals , weddings etc., and in the summer in my country we wear short sleeves all the time, so your statement is subjective and uninformed about the diverse customs of the catholic faith in different countries. So your opinion is just your own, not factual.

      Delete
    2. As a Catholic, I always wear something while inside the church to cover my arms if my dress or blouse is sleeveless. I know that is not the case with all women. Her dress is too tight, and a poor choice for her body, but I don't think she has any guidance where her wardrobe is concerned. I completely agree about the shoes, but will go a step further and say that they are ugly. They feel very outdated to me. As for the jewelry, it could have a very sentimental meaning, which is why she chose it. I have done that, wearing very special pieces on very special occasions. It is just a thought. I also agree with you about Stephanie as a person. I think she is a very dear, kind person, and is probably relishing every moment of motherhood right now. Her wardrobe is most likely the furthest thing from her mind.

Anonymous @9:50 PM, I don’t have any issues with you being curious about where every person in this family lives, obviously that is of some importance to you, and the answers are easy because they are factual. Asking the people on this forum about whether they know if these women get along , or love, or dislike each other is just ridiculous because we don’t know... and most importantly we don’t care, because we aren’t nosy.

  45. I suppose such mustard-yellow colour of dress of Grand Duchess Stephanie symbolizes the happiness of being a mother and having an adorable child:) . Everyone is looking so happy!

    I think the size and shape of the dress can suits her better if it was better fitted to her figure, she deserves to be beautifull! However, towards her inner shining the style mistakes definitely fade away.

  46. Anonymous @8:15, nope!! you are just nosy. People that are interested in the family dynamics of perfect strangers are just nosy, and yes I do believe that the participants of this blog know nothing about that, because the only way to know these details would be to be part of their circle, and if that was the case I seriously doubt that they would share it with you.

      And yes, as I'm not a complete twat I have heard of the word privacy. Have you heard of the words condescending and patronising? Probably - I expect you hear people using them when talking about you.

    2. And just because something is "your belief" doesn't make it so.

  47. Wow 11:27.. aggressive much.. your language is rather rude, perhaps clean it up a little?
    I still think you don’t get the meaning of private life, family interactions etc., and no they don’t need to share that with you, all you should get is pictures in public appearances, speeches, and authorized interviews. If you feel the need to know more that that, perhaps you need a hobby.

    1. Right back atcha with the aggression. Especially of the passive kind.

      Inability to read what people say - much?

      I didn't say they were obliged to share the details of their pri vate lives, I said details sometimes are in the public domain - could be for any reason.

      If you feel the need to police what other people are interested in perhaps you should move to North Korea.

  48. Anon@ 8;56AM, so that is your solution? When somebody points out in that your need to know private details of the lives of strangers is nosy, you tell them to go live in North Korea. Not policing as I never stated that you shouldn’t write your opinion, just a healthy debate. I understand that there is a huge demand for details about public people’s privacy, that is why the trash magazines exists, , but I don’t think you would get that type of info here....

    1. 1. I don't need to know the details of the private lives of strangers.

      2. As I said previously the question was not mine - do you need interpretive dance to get that?

      3. I just don't think the question warranted the response it got - but then I didn't read it as a request for all the dirt on them.

      4. It is a matter of supreme indifference to me as to how the members of this family get on with each other.

      5. I stand by my view that a blog about ROYAL fashion might have some people visiting it who know something (anodyne - again not scandal just to be clear) about Royal families eg. "No reason to suppose they don't, they always seem perfectly civil in each other's company but who knows as they probably don't see other that much."

      6. You have told people things aren't their business (that isn't debate) and told me to get a hobby - based on your inability to read what I actually said. You have very strong opinions on what people should be interested in and what they should do if you think they shouldn't be - a dictatorial tendency that made me think North Korea would be perfect. So that wasn't the solution to your calling me nosy.

  49. Anonymous @ 7:47 PM how can anybody answer to your comments if you don’t even sign with a name... nobody knows who said what anymore... on the other hand, just admit that you are nosy and move on. Stop labeling people as dictators.. seems to me that you are the one being overly rude.

    1. Well Isabel L - you've managed to answer me so it doesn't appear to be a problem.

      No, I shan't admit to being nosy because "sigh" YET again - I don't think the question was nosy AND - now this is the important bit so I'll say it nice and slowly so that it is quite, quite clear for those who are slow on the uptake - I DIDNT ASK THE ORIGINAL QUESTION. I DON'T CARE WHAT KIND OF RELATIONSHIPS THEY HAVE. IT DOESN'T INTEREST ME IN THE SLIGHTEST.

      How about you move on and stop labeling people as nosy?
