Well, but I think the suit is really beautiful. It somehow does not look like the other Natan stuff that is worn by some of the Benelux-ladies and Mum Silvia.

The cut of the skirt-part of the dress looks a lot like other Natan-creations (the skirt of Maxima at the christening, the skirts of Mathilde in early pregnancy and in summer 2007, etc. etc.)
I think it had looked better if it was cut as a classical pencil-skirt.

Darn it, no whoppers!

The ladies look nice though, especially the Grand Duchess. Is she wearing the Belgian tiara of Josephine-Charlotte?

Is that Prince Carl-Johans wife behind Victoria and Carl-Philip in your first picture?

The Grandduchess looks very nice, but Queen Silvia...., I think the yellow sash from the order doesn't match very well with her pink gown
Princess Victoria looks quite nice.

I believe that is Countess Wachtmeister a lady-in-waiting of Queen Silvia.

Not so fond of the queens outfit tonight, we have seen it many times before and it didn´t look so good against the sasch and the saphires, but Victoria looked great - a really beutiful dress, i just wished she would have worn a necklace to it but she always looks great in that tiara. I haven´t really decided about Madeleines dress yet... The Grandduchess looked good.

I like Victoria´s dress, and she looks beautiful. Madeleine is too much like a Hollywood Star, I don´t like her style and dress at all tonight. And she should have put her hair up. Queen Silvia, I´m not so fond of that color of her dress. Grand Duchess Maria Teresa has a beautiful dress, maybe she should have chosen a different color.

Wow! Everyone looked fantastic, I am thrilled. Perhaps the only gown I'm not thrilled with is Silvia's gown - retire it for ten years please!!!
Thanks for all the pictures.

Silver and Golden Princesses

Both princesses looks so elegant.
Maybe if Madeleine (little chubby but qute) would took her hair up and take shoulder straps she would look much better.
Victoria should take her tiara not so high.
Both looks great during welcoming. New hats and outfits for them how good specialy Viki.

Comparing Silvia with her daughters they win the competition for the best swedish gown. I hope to see her in better gown.

Maria Teresa once again elegant. Maybe if not this tiara but it was ok.

I have to say that I am disappointed by hats worn by Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Madeleine. The suit worn by Crown Princess Victoria has got a nice style, but I am not sure about the colour. Yes, Crown Princess’ suit does liken suits worn by Crown Princess Mathilde very much. Princess Madeleine’s jacket was ill-fitted; I do like her ponytail though. Grand Duchess’s grey outfit is perfect.
I am not sure about the snow white gala dress worn by Grand Duchess Maria Teresia. Queen Silvia’s dress has got a nice cut, but the colour is totally wrong. The gala dresses of Crown Princess Victoria and her sister are acceptable, but could have been better.

The Grand Duchess looked magnificent, I thought. The white dress set off her colour nicely, and the jewels were just the right size for her.

Silvia… the dress looked like it didn't fit quite right, and while she looked good in the colour, it definitely did not mix well with the order she was wearing.

After Victoria and Madeleine's interesting colour-coordination, and put together looks, earlier in the day, I was a bit let down by the evening.

Since "shiny" and "heavy recycled" are my enemies Nr1 in connection with watching the SRF and their style, I can´t say, that this evening was a success...and so all points go imo to the Grand Duchess.

Victoria´s dress isn´t just shiney, but reminds me of a shower curtain (you know the cheap ones, they have in motels and hostels) meeting alu foil I´ve liked her look at the Norwegian Opera Opening soooooo much better...or her daytime style...

Why, oh why ...

Marie Terese just can't get it right. Her arrival outfit totally overwhelmed her with a thick fur wrapped around her neck and a squishy hat. It probably looked great as a design on paper, but on her - no. She's short. She needs to wear clothes which elongate her figure, not push her down. A white gown may look good with her complexion, but it doesn't do her any favors figure-wise. She needed that shawl ariound her shoulders and arms. Same hairdo as earlier just doesn't go with a tiara - it's too girlish. She really piles on the make-up. Her face always looks very oily and shiny.
Queen Silvia is starting to show her age. She still has a great figure, but she looked so old ladyish with the white hat plopped on the back of her head and the fur coat. Her gala gown was a lovely cut, but looked old and worn.
Victoria looked amazing - her pink suit was refreshing and her gala gown looked young and trendy - I loved the halter neckline.
Madeleine looked so-so. Her gray suit was uninspiring and her gala gown was just a nice dress.
I don't know why, but Madeleine always looks like she'd be more comfortable in jeans and a t-shirt.
