Thanks everyone for posting links to photos. It's been wonderful to see the all the royals together.
I am not sure are Princess Mathilde's dress ! But the photos of her in the brown outfit in the snow certainly make up for it.

Who is the woman (red hair, grey dress) on the far right (as we face it) of the large group photograph on the Danish royalwatchers website?

The group picture of all the young princes and princesses is horrendous!! The guys look weird. Maxima looks amazing!!! Her dress, her hair, she looks like a true princess. Mette-Marit, I'm sorry, as much as I want to find something nice to say, there is nothing I like about her dress/hair/etc. No matter how expensive the dress/tiara, she does not look like a princess to me. Mary looks okay. Nothing spectacular. I love Cristina's dress. She looks great, great. She is a true princess!!! She has class, she is elegant, she is who she is. Great!!

OMG! Best event of the whole birthday!! I loved all the gowns, except Mathilde's (the bottom half reminds me of fish scales ) and Astrid's (a little too poofy for my liking).

All the ladies were lovely tonight. I loved the way Maxima looked. Her hair was a classic! Maria Theresa was also very elegant and Martha Louise.

It may be one of those dresses that just looks too busy when photographed but I imagine it was quite impressive in person.
I had that same thought! I haven't been able to decide whether I like it or not. But I imagine it probably looked very nice if she and Philippe danced at all. I can picture it really flowing very well on a dance floor.

That would be the president of Finland.

Spot on in both cases.

Absolutely. Such a strange photo.

This is a cute picture of Martha-Louise and Leah Isadora.

Looks like it was COLD!

Mary was quite stylish despite the weather. I'm jealous of her skinny legs.

I really like the tiaras on Mary and Maxima. Can anyone identify them?

I was not that fond of Maxima's dress. The color looks good on her but tonight the effect was casual rather than glamourous. Maxima didn't stand out.

Looking at the pictures again, i must say that Mary looks much better from the dinner and that dress lookes nicer than when she wore it the first time. The picture of the Norwegian royals on the balcon was nice, looked like it was a very cold night, but they all looked great
