I am not particularly fond of the purple dress. It looked like someone bleached the middle portion of the dress.

I first saw the a photo of Victoria from the waist up at the Swedish Style dinner and I said "WOW", and then I saw the rest of the gown.:( I am really not a fan of iredescent dresses part of the dress, that is my only complaint. I loveher hair (no ponytail!!!--yay!:p ), make up and jewelry.

Congrats to her for having a such successful trip!!

Thanks to all for the photos and articles.

Thanks for the photos and the articles! That dress is stunning. Too bad about the watermark though. Boo to the lighting. It makes it shine so much! But besides that she looks gorgeous.

Love her shadow in that one photo! Neat.

Thank you everyone for the photos. I am impressed by what Victoria wore last night. From what I can see (my internet is playing up and I can't open all the photos :() she isn't wearing those dodgy white shoes, and the equally dodgy ponytail is nowhere to be seen. I'm happy! The dress is really beautiful, and the detailing at the top really made the dress. It would have been a little boring otherwise. I don't know about yesterday's dress now. It was nice, but there was something I didn't like about it. I know, I am fussy and complain about everything. :p

Two more pics from Cover.

Agree, the dress is indeed beautiful. I, especially like the beading around the neckline upto the waist. Except, she should really change the shoes. White shoes don't really go with the dress.

You are most welcome, Danielle and Thank You for posting such wonderful photos of Victoria.

Let's both drag her shoe-shopping and get her some wonderful pairs of shoes Also, take this white pair and incinerate them, so they are gone for good.

What a wonderful idea! I'm in. :) I think a pair in a more suitable colour would have gone better with some of her outfits. There is only so much white goes with, and that design is very limiting. I know I shouldn't over-analyse her shoes, but they annoy me so much, and I think everyone knows that by now. There are some really great boutique stores near her hotel, so hopefully she will stop in a few of them before she goes home.

Article from SMH

This is from today's Sydney Morning Herald.

Apart from the headline it is a very sympathetic, and intersting, story. Victoria reveals a bit about herself, and comes across as vulnerable and endearing.
Sweet.
Queen's training begins in the kitchen

By Jordan Baker 18 March 2005:

When the Swedish embassy sent Crown Princess Victoria a suggested itinerary for her trip to Australia, she was not pleased. "You are not working me hard enough," she said.

Unlike other royal visitors, the tireless heir to the Swedish throne left herself little time for sightseeing during a 10-day visit to promote the Swedish Style in Australia festival.

Her final schedule involved 36 official events, including business seminars, an Abba musical, a trade fair and a talk on design innovations and home appliances at the Swedish company Electrolux. "When I go on trips like this I try to be as efficient as possible," the 27-year-old said on the second last working day of her visit. "It's a lot, but I like it. I'm having fun, too."

Princess Victoria became first in line to the Swedish throne at the age of two, when the country changed its constitution to allow a woman to be monarch even if she had a younger brother.

As part of her training, she has studied political science at Yale, worked as an intern at the United Nations and is now doing a course in crisis management and conflict resolution.

"There's no such thing as a school of queens," she said. "You try to learn as much as possible about so many different things in order to be able to talk to everyone and understand what they're talking to you about.

"It's difficult to be in the spotlight, yes, but you sort of get used to it as well. What I see as difficult is to live up to the expectations ... and help Swedish companies and Sweden in the most efficient and best ways possible and do my best."

Lessons in diplomacy are paying dividends. When asked her views on an Australian republic, she replied: "I am not supposed to have any political views. So I'm sorry, I'm passing on that one."

Princess Victoria believes it is harder for people not born into royalty, such as Australian-born Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, to cope with the pressures of the job.

"My advice [to Mary] would be to be herself and try to find balance in life, which is hard sometimes for all of us," she said.

"I've felt particularly that living up to people's expectations was one thing, but it was hard to live up to my own expectations and maybe I had too high goals. But you learn. Hopefully."

It wouldn´t surprise me, when all earrings, she has worn in the past during the days, were designed of Madeleine.

Thank you so much for the pictures and articles, Danielle, Monalisa, pdas, smudge and Warren :) :) :)

BUNTE is comparing Mary´s and Victoria´s styles in Australia directly. Photo-show ("weiter" means "forward" and "zurück" means "back"):

http://www.bunte.t-online.de/c/37/08...self,si=0.html

The article to the photoshow (BUNTE seems to be really fond of Daniel Westling. According to them, or a smitten journalist working for BUNTE, he would be Victoria´s best "accessoire" )... on the top (right corner) you can vote for the princess, who had the best look in Australia (Options: 1. Victoria...2. Mary and 3. "Am schicksten sind die Koalas!" = "The koalas look chicest" ) I suggest to vote for Victoria. Mary is a person, who seems to have a natural and big interest for style. There nothing needs to be "encouraged"

Thank you for the pictures, GrandDuchess :)

I admit one of my many gaps in education (call me Westling ): I´m really confused of the Australian system of government. In the past days I´ve heard of governor Bashir, premier Carr and now governor-general Jeffrey. As I get it, at least the first two are heads of new south wales (?)
Why a governor and why a premier for new south wales? Usually I´m used to governors for federal states/counties and premiers/prime ministers for the complete state/country.

Nettavisen in Norway has yet another article about Victoria (This is what happen when you dump the pinstriped suit:p ). The article is basically the article about Victorias new style translated by Lena, but it has a nice pictureshow with big pictures without watermark at the bottom of the article. Thr Article is called "Victoria charmes everyone"


http://pub.tv2.no/nettavisen/side2/m...icle362893.ece

As for the Bunte Victoria-Mary poll it is very easy for me to vote for Victoria, not only because I like her very much and she dressed better than usual but I accually prefered her style in 6\7 pictures posted. The red dress was beautiful from the waiste up and the hair perfect but the bottom was to shiny for my taste, and I still think the red dress is the best dress Mary has ever worn.
