Nobel Prize Awards Fashion 2011
The year is coming to an end and one of the last big events in the royal calender has been the awarding of the Nobel Prize in Oslo and Stockholm. Let’s take a look back at the royal ladies’ Nobel Prize fashion 2011!
For the Nobel Peace Prize Award Ceremony in Oslo, December 10, Queen Sonja chose a coral red skirt suit and quite an outstanding hat in matching colour (image). Crown Princess Mette-Marit arrived in a lovely red coat and offered an elegant look at the award ceremony in a figure hugging white dress with layered skirt by Valentino. Black heels, a lovely pair of pearl-earrings and an original black headpiece finished the look (image one, two).
For the banquet after the award ceremony the Crown Princess appeared in a slightly see-through beige and brown dress, also by one of her preferred designers Valentino. If the dress seems familiar to you – we have seen it on Crown Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece as well this year (image one, two). And for the following concert Crown Princess Mette-Marit chose the so called “Black Velvet dress” by Peter Dundas for Pucci. The dress’ highlight is the cleavage which is framed by a white collar with black bow and black lace sleeves. She combined the dress with black stilettos, a black pashmina and ruby earrings.

Stockholm, December 10th:
Queen Silvia arrived for the Nobel prize banquet in a repeated (she had worn it to her daughter’s pre-wedding party in 2010) dress by Jacques Zehnde (image). The perfectly regal gown with train has been slightly altered it seemed, she matched it with an interesting shell-shaped clutch (image). As for her jewellery – the Queen chose Queen Sophia’s Diamond Tiara (image).
Crown Princess Victoria delivered her most sparkly maternity outfit so far – she was wearing a midnight blue, sequined dress by Pär Engsheden, added the brooch, earrings and hairpins from the Leuchtenberg Sapphire parure and chose the Six Button Tiara (image one, two). While Princess Madeleine was absent this year, we got another royal lady to look at – Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxembourg attended the banquet as well. The Grand Duchess had recycled her burgundy gown by Elie Saab and paired it with the Chaumet Emerald Tiara (image one, two).
Stockholm December 11th:
For the King’s dinner Queen Silvia chose the royal-blue dress with see-through sleeves she had worn to the wedding of Prince Albert and Charlene Wittstock this summer before. The Connaught tiara and Victoria von Baden’s sapphire, pearl and diamond necklace completed the look (image). Crown Princess Victoria went for a silver-white lace dress with train, the Baden Fringe Tiara and her beautiful diamond earrings that had made their debut on her pre-wedding party in 2010 (image). Last but not least we got Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxemburg in a shimmering bronze gown with shawl. The Grand Duchess wore the Pearl and Diamond Choker Tiara (image).Filed under Luxembourg Royals, Norwegian Royals, Swedish Royals
