Off topic, I know but I really hate this expression & "baby bump". What ever is wrong with "her pregnancy is showing more now" or "she is quite obviously pregnant" or even better "she is really glowing with pregnancy"

What a beautiful couple !

Ok, concerning the gowns of yesterday : Most of them were simply ugly IMO ... (Mathilde, Silvia ...)
Mette-Marit : She was so beautiful the day before . Why on earth did she choose such an awful dress for the ball ?????? Ugly colours and shape ...
Some were ok but not spectacular, like Madeleine's or even Mary's .
To me, the most beautiful gown of the evening was worn by Maria Teresa . I love it . Maxima was also fairly beautiful .
As for the queen of the ball, Queen Sonja, her gown was not that stunning, but this woman is indeed stunning and beautiful in herself, no matter what she wears ... WONDERFUL QUEEN SONJA !

I totally agree! Honestly: I was surprised to see how "big" the Tiara looks on Mxima ! I'm only used to see it nearly lost in the helmet.
The Tiara looks absolutely stunning on her!
The same goes for the floral Motive Tiara! It looked very beautiful on Laurentien and (the same as on Mxima) I never expected it to look so big!

Mathilde's lack of jewelry / Laurentien

I must say Her Royal Highness Princess Laurentien of the Netherlands has surprised me with the glitz and glam she can provide.

She has worn the Ears-of-Wheat Diademe, the Laurel Wreath Diademe, the Diademe from the Emerald Parure and Queen Emma's Floral Motif Diademe. All of them just worn excellently, giving them the chance to sparkle. In fact she wears these better than her mother-in-law or her aunt-in-law (Princess Margriet)...

Somewhere also a bit weird: the wife of the third son of the Netherlands Queen has worn more diademes, while she hardly attends royal functions, than Her Royal Highness Princess Mathilde of Belgium, the Duchess of Brabant, the future Queen of the Belgians...

Larzen: May I ask, where did you find that picture?


I've been searching a lot of photoagencies, but I can't seem to find a picture of Princess Mabel (I don't mean the grouppicture)

I guess it is from Scanpix. I don't have an account there, but I'm sure they also have pictures of Mabel!

I have though that Princess Mary should wear that red dress last nigth, it suits her very well has she is pregnant!!
Cristina of Spain was very normal has ussualy, nothing fashion at all!MM very bad choice to me, the dress doesn't suite her at all, makes her pregnant again!
Algouth everyone talks about Madeleine I really think she should get congratulations because she has wear what she likes, although a bit different from all but that Pink dress was really her. Last nigth the blue dress shuits her really well, to me she was the best!

Modifying a diademe to match your gown

On this picture you can clearly see that Princess Laurentien requested the Court Jeweller to replace the centre diamond by a big ruby, to match with her clothes. See this picture.

She only opted for one ruby. Queen Beatrix has worn the same diademe with three central rubies. See this picture.

I like it that attention is given to 'what matches with my gown?'.

Here is the Swedish fashion review, got to stay nationalistic is their motto it seems

Madde most beautiful in the Kings Palace
(graded with 1-5 *)

Madeleine *****
Re-used her Nobel gown, and let out her long blond hair under on of the Kings private tiaras

Victoria ****
A dress in a beautiful color that shows of her great body, on the head the fringe tiara that came to Sweden trough her namesake Queen Victoria

Silvia ****
The brown dress was made for the French state visit, as usually her court hairdresser Peter Hgelstam has created a stunning hairdo

Mette-Marit ****
She is often critisised but almost scores a full house tonight, sweet as sugar in a pink dress with white top

Maxima ****
Very pregnant and gorgeous as usual the Dutch Princess made her entrance, to her stunning green creation she had a big pearl tiara borrowed from her mother in law

Mary ***
Usually beautiful but her red velvet dress feels boring, on the head the same tiara and earrings as in her wedding

Mrtha Louise ***
Usually she takes risks and experiments, this night she took it safe and chose and classic Princess gown with her private jewels

Sonja ***
Always keeps to her Queenly style, for her husbands evening she chose a grey dress with the famous Norwegian emeralds

Tarja Hallonen **
Her gala clothes are never special, an extra plus for the colour

Princess Anne *
Her interest in clothes seems non-existant, for Haralds party she chose a white dress with a strange big collar

Pics here Aftonbladet: Madde finast i kungens sal


Norwegian dagbladet, not online, has big pictures of Mathilde, Maxima, Mette-Marit, Mrtha, Madeline and Victoria, and a small one of Mary, they like most dresses but thinks Victoria was a little to simpel, and they cannot praise Mathildes dress enough, they call it the most original and that the train reminded them of snow crystals which was the theme of the evening and the glows the most classy touch, and they say Maximas pearls are almost to big (Im sure some disagree )
