    Ok, looks like she's feeling more confident in choosing her outfits.
    She's really a nice looking and seemingly genuinely caring person so with a bit of effort on her wardrobe she can be a standout.

  2. Ah, quel grand plaisir de voir Stéphanie dans cette nouvelle robe-pull dont le plissé avantage particulièrement sa silhouette ; très bon choix que ces chaussures de couleur rouge à gros talon qui mettent ses jolies jambes en valeur - Par contre, ses cheveux auraient besoin d'un petit rafraîchissement mais elle est quand-même bien belle !

  3. I give her credit for making an effort by wearing a dress instead of those dreadful black pants and a jacket in a colour that can be labeled as "cat puke".
    The dress is rather well fitting, at least by her standards. But I am not sure if these are good colours for her. I think she looks best in "cool" jewel colours: turquoise, electric blue, fuchsia, raspberry red, emerald green and violet.

    And of course it is another art related event. Why oh why is she such a one-trick-pony? When her husband visited a shelter for homeless people some time ago, she couldn't be bothered to come along. It is above me that so many people think she is kind and warm while she never ever has shown the slightest interest in people living on the rougher side of life. What's about helping lonely people like she announced in her pre-wedding interview? Sorry, I am very unimpressed by this woman.

    3. What a sad comment. How do you know that she didn't want to go to the shelter? How do you know that she is not interested in the rougher side of life? A lot of what goes on in the private lives of royal family members is not reported and it always amuses me when people make wild assumptions when they dont have a clue!

      I like that she's wearing a dress, although I do not like the dress she's wearing. Her shoes are great, and it's excellent to see elegant shoes that are not stilettos but have proper heels and are not too high. She wore similar blue heels with the excellent porcelain blue dress a while ago. I find that women in her position, and that includes all other royal ladies, should promote healthy heels instead of stilettos. - I also welcome Romy B's other comments, and I find that judgemental are other posters here. - Ellie

      Romy, what a sad comment on the life of a woman you only know from photos taken at certain events. Photos are a one moment in time, not indicative of whether a person has been at any certain location, or occasion. It really doesnt matter if you are impressed or unimpressed by this woman. I like her, yet I've never met her. I've read about her, her husband, baby son, and life before and since marrying into the royal family. She is extremely well educated, has many interests outside of her duties as a royal, and attends the functions she is scheduled to attend. Please don't denegrate a lovely woman, just because she does not meet up to your standards, whatever they are. Have a great day, and blessings on you and yours. Annie

    7. There is a strange and contradictory argumentation going on lately. If someone makes a critical remark concerning the looks, the fashion choices, the apperance, the engagements of someone featured on this blog, people jump in: "How dare you? You don't know this person! She is lovely!" Really? And you know this - why exactly? Do You know her? I mean, we all - well most of us - don't know these people, have never met them. We only comment on what we see. On what we see on this particular blog. I for myself am here because this blog has a focus on fashion and I don't read loads of other publications. And I dont feel obliged before posting a comment to do research on a particular person and compare each and every photo that has ever be posted somewhere. I comment on what I see on this blog. And what we see here from Stéphanie is, that she makes a lot of unfortunate fashion choices, that she has not yet found a style that suits her and that she mainly takes part in events that are somewhat arts related. To tell the truth, I have been asking myself already, goodness, how many museums and exhibitions does a tiny little country like Luxembourg have? There seems to be no end :-)) And I, like some others, I would also appreciate to see Stéphanie taking part in a broader variety of engagements. I am getting bored to see her protrayed visiting just another exhibition. Romy B. had every right in her - very respectful comment by the way - to express her personal point of view on Stéphanies choice of dress and choice of engagement. No need for the 'Blog police' to jump in.

    This is a very good effort. The dress fits well and the colour is flattering. The stripes on the sleeves visually widens her at the bustline, but that’s a small quibble. The overall look, with the red shoes and good hairstyle, is terrific. (V.M.)

  5. I don't like her dress.

  6. What a lovely dress - I like everything about it. And I like the length on Stephanie a lot better than on the model. The red shoes are a great choice, also much better than what the model is wearing.
    Stephanie has good legs and looks great in skirts and dresses.

  8. Oh my. Whenever I see a headline with Stephanie (whom I like a lot) in it, I steel myself for one more inevitable display of slacks and a slightly bland, boring top plus slightly messy hair. And see what she's done here! Red shoes! And a dress! And her hair's been done, too! What a nice surprise - brilliant, keep it up, Stephanie!

    Lovely! This is how we expect Stephanie to dress for official engagements. This dress is very inexpensive, yet it makes a much bigger impact than what she has been wearing. The top half is too small, so she needed to size up, but I will take what what we get here. The waist band sits in the perfect place, just above her natural waist where she is still carrying extra weight. The skirt skims over her hips, erasing her trouble area entirely. She has beautiful legs which are highlighted when she wears a dress. I am thrilled she is not wearing a midi length. Now she and Guillaume look like they belong together, both dressed with the same level of formality. ~d

    1. I widely agree, I guess the dress exists in different lengths; I think she made the right choice, longer would have been heavier and hide the legs.
      Bearing in mind the knitted material, I don't think the top is too small, it adapts to move etc.

  12. Nice, if unexceptional dress and miles better than what she has worn in recent appearances. She looks appropriate for carrying out an official function. . Agree with-d that it flatters in the right places and disguises problem areas. Well done, Stephanie. More like this would be good

    This is a lovely dress, really like the trim accents and it flatters her figure very much.
    The shoes are a good choice and so different from her usual old lady pumps. I wish the dress would have been just 1 extra centimeter, but nevertheless, very nice indeed.

    HGD Stephanie looks awesome!

    The waistline and length are spot on, and work well with this cool summery colour story. Red shoes add the right foot note.

    Brava!

  15. My personal opinion is that perhaps she has been allotted the arts and culture while the grand duchess has monopoly on the humanitarian and women causes. This is the only plausible explanation why we never see her in other type of events. The Cour Grand Ducal is much more complicated than one could expect. No smoke without fire.

  18. This may not be perfect, but it is so lovely to see her in a pretty dress with great shows to match and her hair done well that I cannot express anything but delight. She looks very well indeed and although her posture indicates that she is still self-conscious about remaining baby weight this is an outfit to be commended. Well done.

    I am not sure why everyone is so critical of this woman. She j ust gave birth to her first child, is enjoying this special time in her life, and everyone fusses about her post-maternity clothing.

    Leave her alone. She does what is best for her, not for everyone that sees this blog. I think she is lovely inside and out, dresses for the occasion, even though it may seem dull to some, at least it is not over the top like Maxima in her choices, her constant messy hair, and over the top outfits, etc.

    I like Stephanie for who she is, a woman, wife, new mother and whatever she wears on any given occasion. Sure, some of her choices are not my choices, and other times, like today, she is totally spot on with her dress/shoes/hair styling, etc. Anne

      @ Anne, I am not sure what blog are you reading but with the exception of one comment above that criticized her duties, in my opinion unfairly so because I think she doesn’t have a hundred percent autonomy regarding her patronages, the comments are fashion based and rather positive. I can’t see the need of telling people “ to leave her alone” , why the drama? This blog is about fashion and we come here to read about such, we should enjoy the diverse opinions. I don’t think that because you like a person ( that you don’t know) you also have to love all her sartorial choices and according to your comment we just can’t disagree and she should be off limits, and BTW why having had a baby ( not just recently) has anything to do with dressing well like today, or dressing poorly like other occasions.
      These unjustified Joan of Arc tirades are getting as bad as the uncivilized personal attacks, would be grand if can say that a piece of clothing is good, bad, pretty,ugly, short, long etc., without having to justify it….

    Miss Marple, the comment WAS about Rony's post, as well as combing previous posts where people say she should step away from black pants and dubious colored tops. They have all been critical of Stephanie when she is just being a normal woman who has taken a natural route back to her pre pregnancy self. I think you duth protest to much. Miss Marple, dressing poorly is in your personal opinion. I thought she looked healthy, and may not have made the same choices, but that is her choice how to dress and we can only look on from the sidelines and make guesstimates about her and the choices she made that day. Have a great life Miss Marple/Rony/whoever. Anne

    @Anne I think you are loosing sight of the fact that this is a fashion blog.
    We discuss fashion. It should have nothing to do with personal feelings about the royal we are discussing. I have to accept the fact that there is a lack of maturity on the part of some commenters when they think everything a royal wears is "ugly" just because they don't like her, but that is generally not the case here. Stephanie is well liked, as much as you can "like" someone you don't know. She doesn't typically dress well. That is a fact. She struggles in that area of her life. I think the majority of us agree it is not a priority for her. Her clothes do not compliment her body, they make her look bigger than she is. The comment about her black pants, in my opinion, is due to the fact that she was wearing a kind of uniform of black pants in a few different unflattering cuts with a variety of white/off white tops in varying lengths, then throwing ponchos over top of all of that. In her position, as a royal, she should make a better impression. These are fair criticisms. I don't recall anyone criticize her about her body post pregnancy. We are all different, we all have recovered at different rates. As for the types of official causes she supports, it never crossed my mind that she could have much of a say in that. I assumed that her duties were basically assigned to her. I further assumed that MT would slowly off-load or create duties for her as time went on. I may be completely wrong, and that would be what I get for assuming. Due to my assumptions, I found the comments about Stephanie being a "one-trick-pony" and "so many people think she is kind and warm while she never ever has shown the slightest interest in people living on the rougher side of life" quite disparaging. These comments are uncalled for. The same commenter also decided to vividly describe the color of a previously worn jacket as "cat puke". It is fine to say you don't like the color, but the descriptive shows a disdain for Stephanie. These types of comments triggered the litany of responses we have above. Why say "she couldn't be bothered to come along" when Guillaume visited a homeless shelter? There could be a hundred different reasons why she wasn't there. These wild assumptions are not helpful and are most likely not true. In my opinion, we are here because of unkind, unnecessary comments that set off the commenters. ~d

  25. She is not a normal woman, she is the hereditary grand duchess of Luxembourg. As such she is a representative for her country but also a public figure. In this position she will be seen and judged, which by the way we all are on a daily basis. But again for her it comes with her position. Lets not waste any more time discussing if others on the blog are being too critical and not nice to her etc.

    As for having good taste and being fashionable she is most often not. What puzzles me is why she is not even looking smart in her outfits. Mostly we see her in ill fitting and strange looking outfits. She must have or at least should have the opportunity to have advisors.

    Again, my personal opinion is that it feels like a cry for help. One cannot avoid feeling that all is good and dandy in the Cour.

      Mikey322. Stephanie is a normal woman who happened to marry a public figure. Have you ever listened to her speak, or have knowledge of her extensive education? As a public figure that counts for a great deal. Whether you feel her clothing fits her, or not, is of no consequence. Maybe she just has a difficult body to fit clothing to, who knows. This does not mean it is a cry for help, or all the queens, princesses, etc who have made odd choices or go over the top in dressing would be crying for help, don't you think? lol
