I find that people who are fashion "icons" (for better or worse) tend to be uncomfortable in there own skin, or just plain unnatractive. Mette Marit is would be just as beautiful in a burlap sack. clothes don't make the woman.

True...but clothes often make the photo.

you couldn't be more right. I don't have much fashion sense as it is, it's natural for me to defend others that are in the same boat.:)

I think that Mette-Marit is of the H&M school of dressing. Mostly basic, comfortable, everyday stuff. She doesn't strike me as a pantsuit kind of person, if you know what I mean. I suppose she feels like dressing up when she has to wear formal clothing, and that makes her move less natural and look a little bit uncomfortable. It's a pity. She's one of the prettiest CPss around, but also the least glamorous one.

I do agree she has terrible dressers and makeup artists/hair stylists. Mette Marit call me!!! Much of her clothing is ill fitting, and not flattering. She doesn't have to be a major fashion person, but needs to be taken shopping for decent simple clothes that both suit her figure and she likes.

It's also unfortunate but studies show that we tend to forgive more to beautiful people than we do to the ones for whom Mother Nature was less generous in the look department. Sad and mean but awfully true.

To get higher popularity ratings, MM should not only show us her inside beauty - something she already does wonderfully - but also and always her outside beauty. Our world is vain...

MM and Mary should hang out more together because they both could learn from one another.

Mette-Marit is very beautiful. I wish she would use it to her advantage and stop hiding it. She has an amazing smile and needs to smile more.

just due to her upbringing and lifestyle beforehand...it's tough because at heart Mette Marit is not a princess, just a regular down to earth gal. She's beautiful, naturally, but not glamorous. In my opinion, that's a heck of a lot better than being unnatractive and glamorous.

And then there are people like me who really don't care too much about clothes . When I was 15 I wore my favourite jeans for about 6 months in a row (my mother had to wash it at the weekend)

I don't know a ton of details. But a German station did an outdoor interview with Haakon and Mette-Marit. Something to do with the lights and sun caused them both to be severely burned. I think Mette-Marit's were second or third degree.

I don't believe I saw pics of Haakon after this interview but I have seen the ones of MM. I thought that she was badly sunburned. Now I understand. What a shame since she is so beautiful.

I remember seeing pictures of Haakon and he was so burned and peeling badly, almost like shedding a layer of skin. It was awful really.

Mette Marit got it bad under her eyes, she had these dark brown blotches, looked like moles or birthmarks. Whatever it was it went away or got removed, luckily I don't notice any permanent effects to this day.

Just watching the interview they seemed so at ease and comfortable, but Mette Marit squinted alot so something was definitely bothering her. Bad job by the German TV crew, you have to know how much light you can shine on a persone before burning them to a crisp!

I agree. Hopefully the royal couple received a heartfelt apology from the German tv station.

The TV station apologized, they were very embarrassed about it all. As far as I remember, the sunlight was strong, too, and they didn't take this into account when they rigged up the lights.

If MM kept squinting, that should have sent off alarms that something was wrong. Anyway, despite the lights and burning, does anyone know if the interview was a good one or at least revealed anything of interest about this beautiful couple?

Thanks for the article, Valhalla, I never knew about that accident. If Haakon's burns were considered less severe then Mette-Marit's, then I really shudder to think what happened to her.

I think she is the most shy and quiet of all the Crown Princesses. Plus, someone pointed out since she was allready a mother when she became Crown Princess, she had been used to raising her child completley on her own, so she wants to keep doing things that way. Mary, Maxima and Letizia have had to combine motherhood and being Crown Princesses at the same time.
I honestly think Mette-Marit finds being in the public eye a little scary, but I also think she does incredibly well. I really like her.
