Queen Sonja's tiara and hair are gorgeous in that picture. It really goes well with the overall tiara shape. A pretty tiara can look really ugly with the wrong hair. I think tiaras with pointy edges (like the Baden Fringe - Crown princess Victoria) look better with a curvy up-do (like Sonja's), it gives the tiara a more soft and beautiful effect.

While curvy tiaras, like the Swedish Buttons should be worn with a more angled hair style (am I making any sense?)
This "round" hairstyle http://img78.imageshack.us/my.php?image=31yh.jpg is not good for the Button Tiaras. It doesn't look good on the person and doesn't complement the tiara very well.

Have anyone seen a picture of Victoria wearing a tiara with a ponytail?

Not really, thank goodness! Victoria has worn her hair in a ponytail-ish style but with huge curls that it looks different. Her hair in Nobel 2001 is a good example, here's a picture: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...5&d=1052756132

Here is one of Queen Sofia. The photo was taken yesterday.
I think that this tiara looks perfect on her!

You know, it is just my opinion, but I think given the origins of Tiara's, they deserve a complicated hair ensemble. Think backto when tiaras were first used. The hair was not washed often andit was easier to manipulate into complex coiffure. For goodness sakes, women would often have a whole bird cage in their hair (this is FACT).

These are precious items that are very special, and should thus not just be thrown on the head willy nilly. I applaud and appreciate the time and effort that these women put into their dress! They know that people wait for it now just as they did in centuries past, and make preperations accordingly!

A tiara should be treated with respect by the people who are priviledged enough to wear that bit of history on their head!

On a different note, these tiaras definately make up for her hair, not that her hair isn't pretty, it's just been the same for so many years. Nice to see a little glamour with her.
Even though the Duchess' hair has been the same for decades, I believe it is maybe the most suitable style for this impressively gorgeous piece of headgear.
