  2. Très jolie et distinguée Princesse, avec de jolis yeux bleus. Toujours vêtue avec beaucoup de goût.
    Sa famille doit être ravagée de tristesse, d'autant plus qu'elle n'était pas très âgée.

  3. People in Bavaria are in shock over Princess Marie’s sudden passing. I must pay tribute to this definitive, yet unlikely style icon, who entered the royal family of Liechtenstein when she married their prince, Hans-Adam II in 1967. As I recall, even then, her wedding ensemble foreshadowed a distinctive style which favored simplicity and impeccable tailoring. She was tall and instinctively gravitated toward couture which favored her lithe frame. Throughout her lifetime in the spotlight at Hans-Adam’s side, her thick hair was always perfectly coiffed, and she was well known for “frosting the cake” on her simple outfits with distinctive parures and demi-parures (small, matching sets of fine jewelry), and a quality gold watch. Most impressive and appearing many times over the years was her signature double strand pearl necklace, which she wore with countless outfits, from sweater sets to long gowns. She was someone for whom jewelry always followed and complimented fashion. There is much for women of any age to find worth emulating in her simple, well-considered approach. She will be missed.

    2. Thank you @ Muriel J for your comment.
      My condolences to her family, the people of the Principality of Liechtenstein and of Bavaria.
      Although I don't know much about her fashion history, but of what I do know, she appeared to be a woman (Princess) who helped to confirm the "E" in elegance.
      May she rest in peace.
