The banquet's dinner is over now, the Table of Honour are leaving in procession up through the stairs. The dance in the Golden Hall will soon begin, and the Royal Family are heading for the Prince's Gallery where they will chat with the Laureates and their families during the evening.

Yes, very much so. She should be in a dirndl! She looks rather buff or "buffy" as some people say...

They shine and look much better at the reception then at the awards. They look wonderfull and I love the dresses but I was a bit dissapointed. I was expecting a "nobel" dress. I think those dresses would have been wonderfull for state visits and other occasions but i was expecting a bit more pizzaz.

I hope you mean the PM's wife here, and not the Mistress of the Robes, Countess Alice Trolle-Wachtmeister... I highly doubt she would ever wear "cheap earrings".

Ooh, harsh, but I also agree. That dress she was was certainly not a good colour. Only very few people can wear that shade of purple, and I'm sorry to say, but people who are that tanned just can't. Maybe if you were my level of paleness, but not like that.

That would not have been good. It would have caused heart attacks to a few males too! ha ha ha. And heart attacks for all of those who want glamour but class and elegance for these events. Anyway, bad fashionexpert. Stuffed sausage is right. ha ha ha.

and it would have been an even worse dress on madeleine than the one she actually wore...atleast that one was a nice model..im just not so keen on the colour

O, yes. I've heard of her. I mean those who do casual like you said really shouldn't talk about such events when it comes to fashion. I mean it's like in Music. You generally wouldn't listen to P Diddy talk about John Cage or whomever. ha ha ha. Watch out. I'll be proven wrong and P Diddy is an expert on John Cage...

My two cents worth :

I see a trend here .... with the Princesses dresses ... a few years ago they were plain. Then the last two years there was a beginning with pattern. This year, finally some good looking dresses for the two. And delightful tiara's too.

The one looking a bit dowdy now is the Queen. But at least the contrast she provides makes her daughters look good.

And a minor point to some writers here .... have we become cynical or are we becoming jaundiced? ... inview of comments like the dress is too plain and so on.
Perhaps it is one thing to have to go repeatedly to this event, but each year it is a new bunch of Bobel Lauterates, if you see my point?

In regards to Madeleine .... her face is a marvel to behold. When she smiles, she lights up the world about her.

Victoria ... seems to have come into her own. Her smile at the dinner bespeaks confidence.

Nary a comment read about Carl Philip .... oh boo hoo hoo !!! :(

- I thought Victoria looked wonderful. great makeup, great hair, great tiara. she smiled so sweetly. she seemed realy happy. i like the way the necklace matched the sash around her dress. that was different from what she usually wears. Victoria can still keep us guessing.

personally I would have preferred to see thicker straps on the dress. so much fabric and jewelry around the rest of her body and then just little spagetti straps on the shoulders-it seems asymetrical to me.

- Madeleine looked good too. not much to say about the dress, it was pretty. I thought her hair looked wonderful. it was very well done and the tiara was well situated in it today-that's an area she's struggled with in the past.

-Lilian-hmm...well she is still the only bernadotte who manages to wear the six button tiara well. kudos to her for that. the design of the dress was lovely, but I dont like that puke green color on anyone and Lilian is no exception.

-Silvia-delightful to see her wearing her wedding crown again. it's been languishing in the safe for too long. the color of her dress was fantastic. very regal. personally I dont think at her age her necklines should plunge that deeply, but that is just me. also, I thought she'd used too much eyebrow pencil. it made her look a bit severe.

anyway, all in all absolutely delightful royal Nobel. good work, ladies! can't wait till next year.
