The Best dressed: easily Maxima that red dress really stood out. :)

The Worst dressed: hard to say because there were some real shockers but I'll have to go with Marie-Chatal that dress looks just plain ugly to me.

And I hope Madeleine stops tanning because she looks red.

Thank to everyone who has posted photos over the last few days. It has been wonderful to see all the gowns, jewels and beautiful women. I must also mention the men - there are some very handsome Crown Princes!

It seems to have been a popular design: Princess Anne wore a very similar one to her wedding and Pincess Georgina of Liechtenstein wore one, too, though her prongs are more prominent between the spikes.

I am so impressed with the gowns and jewels the royal ladies chose to wear.
Princess Maxima: Bravo! She always manages to look stunning and the Mellerio parure is fantastic on her.

Crown Princess Mary: I agree that the color of her dress seems to wash her out- especially standing next to the vibrant dress of Princess Maxima- but I am sure that in person Mary's dress must have looked stunning. Great jewels too.

Duchess of Brabant: The dress is gorgeous but the fit is not altogether there. The hairstyle is perfect though. Mathilde is always well put together.

Crown Princess Mette-Marit: The dress is a good color for her but the style looks a bit matronly for her and ages her. Perhaps a different hairstyle too so the earrings and tiara would stand out a bit more. And please sit up straight!

Crown Princess Victoria: She looks beautiful as always and the Baden fringe tiara in my opinion suits her the best. The color and cut of the dress works well for her and she looks fabulous!

Princess Madeleine: Yes, the dress is an old one and we're a bit tired of seeing it but the cut and color are just perfect for her. The jewels look great and Madeleine is one of the only princesses who can pull off wearing a tiara with her hair down (which I think she should have done). She looks exactly what she is- a young, beautiful swedish princess.

All the ladies looked stunning and I think did a fantastic job.

She has worn the tiara the first time ca. 1996/97 and it is believed to be a gift from her parents either to her or to her daughter Princess Maria Olympia. But is definitiv not from Queen Ingrid, she had no fringe tiara. Queen Alexandrine of Denmark had a fringe tiara which was inherited by her younger son Knud, and is now in the posession of his son, Count Ingolf of Rosenborg. His wife Sussie wore it at the danish Wedding celebrations in 2004.

What a wonderful event. Thank you to everybody who worked hard posting photos and comments.

I was wondering if Prince Nikolas of Greece brought his girlfriend?

Why didn't they pair Ps Mary with someone who didn't have a partner like Prince Nikolas or is there some sort of protocol or order they have to follow when they are at a formal function? (I am talking about the dinner where Prince Henrik escorted Queen Beatrix)

Princess Mary first walked with Prince Willem-Alexander & Princess Maxima, but toward the end of the evening when they all switched partners, Princess Mary walked with Prince Nikolaus.

I loved looking at the beautiful pictures.

Thumbs up to : CP Mary and Maxima for their elegance. I liked Maxima red dress and Mary green gown and mainly her hairdo. She should this kind of hairdo in the future.

I was really disappointed with M-Marit and Marie-Chantal who is usually very well dressed.

The iceblue dress CP Victoria wore was beautiful. So simple and elegant, I think she looked much better than her sister that evening.

About the Spanish royals

King Juan Carlos only attended the firtst part of the celebration of King Carl XVI Gustaf birthday. They left after massceremony in the cathedral in the Castle of Stockholmn.

It is´nt often now days th King of Spaing are going for parties but he and the Swedish monarch ar are very close friends in private with simular interests.

Stockholm's police department even gave the sovereign a global satellite positioning system, prompting his daughter Princess Madeline to joke that the gadget would likely take over from Queen Silvia as official royal map reader................

if noone has tanslated it yet, i can do it, let me know..( i just havent bothered to read every single post here, its to many, so mayb someone have translated it already)

ok here's my "opinion" since everyone else post theirs

first off, i enjoyed the celebrations as a whole, i was hooked by the tv n the pc all day....watchin whatever they showed n downloaded LOADS of videos of the king all day:)

mmm bout the cloths, on the luncheon... mary def had the best outfit..i just tooootally love it. but i also like Victoria & Madeleines outfits..but those hats..hmm bit tooo big/to far down..you hardly could see their faces!

mmm gala cloths at the evening. well i think victoria looked the best, that dress really suited her, and she had my fave tiara and a necklance which goes well with it...

madeleine...ok... im BORED by that dress *yawn* but at least she didnt wear one of the stupid buttontiaras (hate them) and for once she actually had the hair up in a hairdo which really suited her, it's soft. so she's ok... though how anyone can think that this dress is GREY is beyond me.
http://img61.imageshack.us/my.php?im...395334g5zj.jpg

im glad to see that one of the buttons tiara found another head *wish it would stay there* http://img15.imagevenue.com/img.php?...6_4a8c86b4.jpg

when i saw silvia...i was like WTF mmm awful top of the dress....
mmm the colour was pretty wicked though...but again..how anyone can find this colour "pale green"...that's definitly beyond me...
http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...5&d=1146473777

luv the "kröningsdiademet" (sorry i forgot the english name) mmm it really makes her look like a queen...

of the others, i like lillians dress..that lady is cool

mmm mary's dress was a disappointment imo... maxima well i like the colour but not the cut of the dress... & mette-marit... eh..*no comments*
