Je ne comprends pas pourquoi on peut dire "la robe la plus belle"?
In French you have two possibilities to form the superlative, which differ by the placement of the adjective:
la plus belle robe -- la robe la plus belle
The definite article is repeated in the second case. If you want to know why, I don't think there even is a "why" for that except that's how it is.
@Chris - but this second case is not mentioned in the lesson, is it? Would be great to see more examples.
I think it is discussed in this lesson: Forming the superlative of adjectives in complex cases
