Royal Outfit of the Day: March 19

Well, I think Mary's dress might be one of the most princess-y dresses ever to princess. That neckline, that soft pink, that train! Tiara, pearls, and uniformed prince included, naturally. She lost her shoe for a moment on the entrance and this skirt even did its proper princess duty and covered for her.
The dress is by Australian designer Carla Zampatti and was created especially for Mary's photoshoot for Australian Women's Weekly. It's a custom version of a gown from the designer's existing collection, done in pale pink brocade and without the hemline variation. For the state dinner, Mary accessorized with her wedding tiara and a new pink stone pendant on her pearl necklace. If I have one quibble (and who am I kidding, of course I do) it's that the waist might be a touch too high on her - but nevertheless, I'd love to see her give this one a spin with the ruby parure at a New Year's Court gala some day.

I know some of you have been itching to talk about this state visit, so let me give you some linkage for a few of the events:
