Jacob Wallenberg's 50th birthday, January 2006

When did this take place?

From billedbladet
According to BB Victoria looked like a million dollars when she came to the 50th birthday of the Swedish finance man Jacob Wahlenberg at the Grand Hotel

Thank you for finding this picture Larzen, Victoria looks absolutely gorgeous - definitely like a million bucks!

Of all the big shots (who can be quite full of themselves) in the corporate world, Jacob Wallenberg is one of the few that I really have respect and admiration for. He's quite down to earth and a very open and natural person, unlike many of his colleagues, and despite his family name (Wallenberg, being the most known family of Sweden, the Bernadottes excepted). He turned 50 this past Friday, 13 January, but I don't know when the party was held (I guess it could've been the same day). Dagens Industri had a great interview with him to honour that day, they have it online as well - you can read it here.

Pardon, what does "look like a million dollars" mean? I'd like to understand, I'm sorry I'm Italian...

Question "Million dollars"

To "look a million dollars" means that someone looks absolutely stunning, as if they have had a million dollars spent on them to look that way if you can get what I am saying.

Well, Victoria really looked gorgeous, she is getting more beautiful everyday, but I didn't like the dress. Just my opinion, though.

Here are a few more pictures of a gorgeous Crown Princess Victoria (or to put it as Billed Bladet did, "looking like a million dollars") at the 50th birthday party of the Jacob Wallenberg at the Grand Hôtel in Stockholm in mid-January.

Pictures by Charles Hammarsten via Svensk Damtidning.

Thanks for scanning, GrandDuchess.
This outfit is very sexy From behind it looks like a bra and black skirt. So nothing for the NPA ; but for the occasion it looks appropriate.

I'm a little bit surprised at the back on the dress too, but the good ol' pony tail saves the day () and covers up part of it. Thanks GD for scanning it.

She should have a young modern hairdo to go with that sexy dress, not a messy ponytail

Question Stunning

Crown Princess Victoria looked stunning but did she really have to wear a ponytail?!

Maybe she's trying to find her own "helmet hair" (the hairdo that never changes), which is a trademark of the european queens (Beatrix, Sofía, Silvia, Elizabeth, etc) to practice when her time comes

Thanks for the pics GD! Victoria looks good... her back is a ehm, surprise :)

Wonder if she changed the dress to look more "2006". She wore it back in 2002 aswell

see here at this photo taken in Norway at Märtha Louises birthday
