For the welcoming-ceremony Mette-Marit wore a grey-black coat and no hat. (quite boring )
Queen Sonja recycled a green suit and small hat.

Aftenposten.no has pictures and article (in Norwegian): Mette–Marit frisk igjen, Ragnhild ikke med

Apparently, Princess Ragnhild isn't attending the gala, but her husband is.

queen sonja is beautiful i love this green-mate colour on her. i miss martha-louise in these ceremonies. Definitively lula doesn't fit on royalty the president turned turned his arrival in a jolly party screaming and walking out of line.

Please, please King Harald, when your wife is sleeping tonight sneak away to her dressing room, take the yellow dress and burn it in the palace gardens! Sigh

I love the butterfly Astrid is wearing, and Mette-Marit looks great.

I wholeheartedly agree about that yellow gown. Definitely not my favorite.

I like Sonja's yellow gown - or rather, I liked it the first couple of times she wore it. But this is an extremely recognizable gown because of the colour, and should therefore be worn sparingly. I like that she's good at recycling her clothes, but at state visits there should be a limit.

I can't wait to see the salmon flap dress again! I've been missing it for the longest time now, it should be recycled more often...
It seems that Queen Sonja really recycles half of her evening gowns to death while the other half is only worn once or twice. Unfortunately, the rarely seen ones are sometimes far more elegant than the favorite ones.
Nice to see Princess Mette-Marit with a natural tan, it suits her.
But Brazil's President remains hopeless when it comes to orders. In Sweden, although he certainly received an order, he didn't wear it.
In Denmark, he wore the order but not the sash that goes with it.
And now in Norway, he wears the order plus the sash - and still with a business suit at a white tie gala.

Why , oh why???
I never imagined this combination in my worst nightmares: the yellow to-bright-to-look-at-it dress and the "Star wars" Topaz Tiara...
the cut of the dress is so lovely... but the color totally ruins it!
Sonja has far better dresses she can recycle how often she wants.. she just wore this yellow dress in Finland earlier this year...
Btw: She did something with her hair, didn't she? It seems darker and shorter.. suits her very well!

Mette-Marit's dress looked lovely , but she looked a bit "naked" around her neck... a necklace or some bigger earrings would have looked lovely...

Jeje, I thought about you, Her_Majesty, when I saw the yellow dress and the star wars parure! But I actually like the dress the first time I saw it (Infanta Cristina´s pre wedding dinner?), but it should be a museumpiece by now.

Let´s hope she can get this dress in gold, together with the star wars parure that would be very funky! Though I think Princess Astrid wins with her antenna´s...

About Mette-Marit: I don´t understand why she doesn´t wear the Wasa necklace more often, the one she wore at he pre wedding dinner. It is a very nice piece IMHO. And even as a tiara it would be ok. Anyway, she has been looking rather well lately, healthy, glowing and she seems to take care of her wardrobe more.

--

The Brazilian President seems to be on a hurry during his ´state visits´. It basically is saying hello, have dinner, sleep and say goodbye again, or were other activities planned?
