The article doesn´t tell much new. Only again, why Gustaf planned the party like this. How many guests were present and where they celebrated. And that the Swedish singer E-Type was present.
The article in Aftonbladet was a little bit more interesting:
It played with word plays a la "dressed up-and dressed off" (as caption to a pic of Madde). And has asked it´s fashion know-it-all Sofi Fahrman, who isn´t too fond of the hat (ok, she´s right...but who says, that ppl in the gustavian time looked good?!? Isn´t it quite good, that little Len wasn´t just interested in showing her "assets"?)
An other fashion expert thinks, that a red dress would have been better...to strengthen the sinful look
The article also tells that the party went on in Christina´s villa Beylon (according to Expressen and SDT the future home of Vickan and Daniel) Talking about Vickan and Daniel...Daniel (in a red 17XX-inspired costume) and his Co-sufferers Emma and Jonas arrived earlier (probably when the lazy photographers were still hanging around at home or in the editoral office). Gustaf (to the amusement of his cousins Victoria and Madeleine) arrived to the party on a white horse.
Daniel and Victoria were not seated together...but only two tables away from each other, so that the could glance (according to the author, who is no lower than the great Nyhlén self...and who probably was banned from the party as soon as he begged for entrance) in love at each other
If Daniel Collert has noted or ignored that, isn´t revealed of the author, only that he was present...
The food was from the high class restaurant "pontus by the sea"
(GD is much better in such things...):
with mild smoked tuna
back of the veal with risotto
birthday cake, coffee and cognac/liqueur
wine, beer and mineral water
