I think the Countess looks very elegant. Has she got the same boots on that she wore on her birthday visit?

Wow! Doesn't Mette Marit outshine both Princess Anne and The Countess of Wessex? In the pictures of the three royal ladies sitting together, you're definitely drawn to Mette Marit as she looks so glamorous compared to her royal compatriots.

I agree, MM looked great: lovely dress (lace?), pink sash, makeup and I really like her hair this way. I even liked the fur (though I would have worn fun fur).

And I think she was dressed appropriately for the event compared to either Sophie (too casual) or Ann (outdated and frumpy): elegant cocktail attire.

I don't like the white pantsuit at all, esp for an elegant evening event. I think the white pantsuit was too casual for the event, and way too big - it swamped her. It looked like it was the wrong size.

Ann's dress was outdated and frumpy, which is even worse.

I thought Mette Marit looked great: elegant dress (lace with a pink satin sash), nice shoes, with lovely hair, makeup and jewelry.

I agree completely! I thought Mette Marit looked stunning whilst Anne looked ridiculous in comparison and the Countess looked somewhat out of her league in the style stakes

Love, Lone

I am not someone to jump to conclusions too easily but that's what I thought too.

I thought that after seeing the photographs taken in London - her and Haakon looked close, and the style of the sash on the black dress may have been to cover a swolen tummy?

But none of the women looked a glamourous as Queen Sonja:p I think it was she who "outshined" all the other ladies. But alas, she is Queen :)

I don't know, I suppose it comes down to taste. I liked it - my sister thinks it was several sizes too small.
And yes, that was what I was thinking - but as they say "watched kettles never boil" - so that will be the end of that.

Queen Maud's Dresses

The dress in the center is the one Maud wore for the pic taken in 1909. The dress was made by Lafferrière, who appears to have made some wonderful examples of formal dresses for Maud at this time; composed of ice green silk satin, it is embroidered in green and silver. The dress is 'shaped like a pinafore over a blouse of metal lace, and the right front drapes asymetrically over the left'. Although it appears to be quite simple in cut, upon close inspection it is very cleverly constructed to apear as though the fabric is simply wrapped around the body; many small tucks and discreet pleats enable this elegant effect to be created. (From the book "Style and Splendour: The wardrobe of Queen Maud of Norway")

The dress worn at the coronation of her nephew, George VI in 1937. It is made from gold lamé that has a very pale pink tinge to it. The pink element is continued with the elbow length sleeves of pink chiffon, which are only just visible in the photo and which are embroidered with gold beads and edged with gold fringing. The skirt of the gown is bias-cut; this starts from a point at the front of the bodice and ends in a long train at the back. (From the book "Style and Splendour: The wardrobe of Queen Maud of Norway)

The costume worn by Maud for the Devonshire House Ball held in 1897 to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Princess Alexandra had attired herself as Marguerite de Valois, the wife of Henri IV and Maud and the other women of their party were attired as ladies of the court of Marguerite. The gown was made by Morin-Blossier and is composed of pink silk satin duchesse, appliquéd with a silk organza with a silver thread lattice pattern. It is also trimmed with silver sequins, silver and glass beads and diamanté on the gown, the lace collar and cuffs.

The Coronation gown worn by Maud in 1906. This gown is fashioned from gold lamé, has scalloped lace sleeves and is cut "en princesse"; it has a very decorative pattern of flowers and ribbon bows which are embroidered in gilt metal thread, gold sequins, artificial pearls and diamanté. The dress itself is very sculptural, as the fabric is backed onto thicker material and lined; the hem is quilted and rolled to ensure that the dress and train stay flat when they hit the floor.

This dress is by Lafferrière and is dated 1902. This dress has a silk foundation with an overdress of machine made lace. The gown is cut "en princesse" (although the intrivcate beaded embroidery creates a point at the waist that draws the eye in and creates a waist effect) and has a generous train that indicates the very formal nature of the occasion for which the gown was required. The lace is embroidered with gilt metal thread and the floral motifs of the lace are decorated with diamanté and silver sequins; the overall effect shimmers and glitters in the most magical way.
