That yellow dress is certainly a far cry of that smashing white dress of the day before.

Is it just me, or with that hat does she look like one of the (MUCH thinner&#33 teletubbies!!! I love Martha-Louise's fashion choices most of the time, but this one was a bit too much!

From a Yahoo Group. Don´t know where they got it from.


"Norway's Princess Märtha Louise grabbed an unexpected amount of
attention at the wedding of Spain's Crown Prince Felipe with her
flamboyant choice of festive dress. Crown Princess Mette-Marit also
attracted a number of dissatisfied comments about her relaxed attire
upon arrival in Madrid.

The Spanish seemed shocked by Märtha Louise's gaudy short yellow dress
with red tulips, the colors chosen by her as a tribute to the vivid
tones in Spain's flag.

Readers of newspaper El Mundo overwhelmingly voted the creation the
most tasteless of the event, and the general impression was that the
nation found the princess' splash of color at a conservative Catholic
ceremony vulgar.

Neighboring Sweden also ridiculed Märtha Louise's brave outfit in the
press, calling the Tulip & Tatamo design "hideous" and a "chicken
shock". The creators were happy with all the fuss.

"We have received many compliments and congratulations. Attention is
something you have to expect when you dress up public figures,"
designer Katarina Grasmo said.

"Märtha came to us with a request for a red and yellow dress in
connection with the royal wedding. She is a radiantly beautiful girl
that can risk a lot. We wondered if the dress might be a bit much but
Märtha said that 'it was just fun'. She is tough and untraditional and
when she is satisfied, we are satisfied," Grasmo said.

Grasmo knew that the princess had taken the original to the royal
wedding in Spain, but didn't know at which occasion it would be worn.

According to newspaper Dagbladet, Crown Princess Mette-Marit also came
under fashion fire in Spain for coming down the red carpet upon
arrival dressed in jeans.

Norwegian fashion commentators that spoke to Dagbladet agreed that
this was a faux pas, even though the arrival was not part of any
official program."

I don't know... maybe the dress would've been better had it been red instead of yellow, and the embroidery yellow?

It's an okay dress, but it's not suitable for the occasion.

I think they were extensions. Just before that her hair was the same height it is now.
