I thought the dress was a rather nice change compared to the dreary suits that are always worn for these occasions. It seemed more of a intimate and casual function for the family. I liked the dress but the shoes sucked!

Oh, I also have a quick question. In this photo is that Princess Olga of Greece behind Marie-chantal? If it is can anyone tell me if her fiancee prince Amadeo attended as well. Does anyone have a seperate shot of them? Much appreciated! Thanks! :p

Thanks to all, who have posted pictures :)
I can´t help...I absolutely dislike Mette Marit´s blouse.
I don´t think, that MC´s style was tacky...IMO that´s a "normal" summer dress.

I love MM skirt, interesting style with the green band and flirty bottom layer. But I think the top/jacket was little too formally cut for the skirt. Like the green stone earrings too (though maybe a little too informal for the formal jacket).

MC has a great figure, esp for a woman who has given birth to 4 kids! But she looks like she needs to wear a bra, and/or the dress should be less high-cut. But I like the dress overall.

Love Alexia's white linen maternity dress - flattering, appropriate for the occassion and the season.

Like Princess Alexandra's (I think that's her) pink skirt and top

I don't think the dress all by itself is that bad, but I do think it is cut a little low in the top for a christening.

Thanks everybody for sharing the pictures. :) Odysseas does not look so much like his brothers did at the time of their baptisms. I wonder if he will take after his sister or someone else in the family.

I think it is Princess Olga; it at least looks like her from the Vanity Fair picture I remember.

I am still marvelling at how grown up (and tall!) Phillippos is! I almost didn't recognize him standing next to his aunt Sofia.

I'm really surprised Alexia made the trip to Greece from Spain -- she would be in her last trimester now and even though it's the beginning of the last trimester it is generally recommended that you not fly. But nice to see her anyways. I wonder if she brought her daughters to Greece as they probably don't see their cousins too often and this would've been a prime opportunity to play with them!

As for the fashions, I think Nikolaos, Philloppos and Carlos Morales had it right -- the light-coloured suits considering the weather in Greece. I cannot imagine how incredibly hot Constantine, Pavlos and Robert Miller must've been in those dark jackets that look so heavy, too.

Like norwegianne, I didn't care for Mette-Marit's top either. It seems frumpy and ill-fitting on her. I did like her skirt however with the green band at the bottom. Reminds me of something Letizia would've worn.

I didn't like Marie-Chantal's dress. I don't know if I would say it was "tacky" per se, but just something about it I didn't like. (I did notice from some of the close ups of Marie Chantal that she is looking more and more like her mother, Chantal; the resemblance is uncanny.)

I think Alexandra Berleberg was the best dressed royal woman there, followed closely behind by Theodora -- Marie-Chantal might lose her place in the family as the best dressed woman! :p

Is Alexandra Beleberg the one in a pink dress with beige jacket?

Yes, this is Princess Olga.
There is no sign of Prince Aimone of Savoy-Aosta in any of the christening photos that I've seen, though. Unless he's had a make-over and shaved off his Salvador Dali moustache.

Yes, that is Princess Alexandra (first cousin of Pavlos)

Yes, I think the top half of her dress was a bit low for a religious occasion like the baptism of her son. Also, I think that a jacket would've been appropriate too over the dress. The other women all wore jackets over their dresses.

Is it just me or does anyone else think that this baptism wasn't as glamorous or as exciting as the baptism of the three other children. This one seemed quite down in scale and much more laid back.
