I like her, she is doing great IMO. I would love to see some highlights in her hair, but that's just me!

I do not see any mother-in-law pictures here, as you say KittyAtlanta. I see a woman who looks her age, nearly 30. This is not "old", it is just mature. She looks healthy and beautiful and 29 years old.
For Stephanie looking young, i.e. like an ingenue, like a young girl, we have had pictures on RF of her when she was in her early 20's, and was a student. She looked quite different, like a sweet young thing.
Today, we figure we are supposed to "look" ten years or more younger than we are, or as people generally looked in years past at certain ages. But we are still those actual ages and time marches on.

No, I've always been dying for some highlights! At least she cut her hair!
The citrine tiara looks best becasue she has had her hair done. The others are plopped on flat hair and don't show off.

I agree, the hair style has plenty to do with why she looked good in the citrine tiara.

At this year's National Day Gala HGD Stéphanie wore yet another tiara:

But is it the same small diamond tiara which Princess Alexandra wore at the pre-wedding of G & S? The photos are not clear enough to be sure, but it looks somehow different. There is a discussion here: Royal Jewels of the World Message Board

It's a new tiara featuring diamonds set in a butterfly motif.

It's very dainty and elegant. It reminds me of the Lannoy Tiara that she wore on her wedding day.

It looks quite delicate but really suits HGD Stéphanie and always good to see new royal jewels being worn and added to the collections.

Her new tiara is beautiful but what is even better is that she is starting to style her hair for each particular tiara. There is not too much bulk or puff at the top that would swallow the tiara but standing it up instead of wearing it as a headband allows the light the shine through and twinkle on all the sparkly bits. And the icing on the cake is how she has dressed the back of her hair - it's a masterpiece!

Sorry, that's the best view I have seen but, from the side it looks awsome.

I liked it from a distance, but up close it looks like a rhine stone creation (which I am sure it isn't). The stones must be very small. It is a perfect 1st tiara for a 18 y/o princess IMO. But Stephanie still pulls it of, though the design will look too 'young' on her in a few years.

I'm quite exited to see a new tiara on HGD Stephanie. But I can't say that I like it that much. It is a bit to plyful and dainty for my taste. Yet I agree with MARG about the hair styling, it is exellantly done and works perfectly for Stephanie and for the tiara.

I tend to agree with you. From the pictures seen so far, it appears very much a "starter" tiara for a young princess, as opposed to something that she may be able to use in a few years.

I'm not a fan of this tiara, it looks fake imo. I don't think this was bought specifically for Stephanie though, the GDF is not in the business of buying new jewels especially new tiaras. It does look similar to the Lannoy family tiara, maybe this also belongs to the Lannoy family?? That would explain why we haven't seen it before.

She seems to love experimenting with tiaras though. Maybe an anniversary gift from her husband?

She is a lovely young woman. The tiara looks like something from the Party Store.

I'm not sure about the anniversary gift idea, only because I hope Guillaume would have better taste than that tiara. He did a lovely job with her engagement ring, I can't see him backtracking with that cheap looking piece of jewelry.

I agree, Moonmaiden. I like the delicate and minimalist approach.
