I'm looking forward to the Polish visit too. Mathilde'll probably wear a dress we haven't seen before. She's very good at recycling her gowns descreetly. E.g. the silver-grey gown she wore in Copenhagen, she also wore it a few weeks later at a charity ball of the Belgian aristocracy. that way she wears her dresses more than once but the second time, it hardly got any attention (because it was a private affair)...
I just love the dark blue gown she wore for the the Goldene Kamera film awards February 4, 2003 in Berlin, Germany.It really suited her, also the lilac one is so beautifull.It is the first time i have seen pic's of it.She does have tast.Simple dress's, simple make-up and simple hair duo's.
I think the Green dress in Shanghai is the best gala dress she has ever worn, its deffenetly one of my favourite royal dresses in 2004 (and we have seen many!!) I also really lliked the flowery one for Frederik and Marys wedding, Natan really brings out the best of her
On the other hand I was not a superfan of the Armani dresses this summer, they have been posted elsewhere but I thought Id post how they looked at the Catwalk just for the comparrison (Could not find the exact copy of the pink one but the white one is similar)
They were as Catherine has written both by Giorgio Armani from his autum\winter 2004-05 collection. Usually I love Armani, very feminie and elegant and they dont scream B-list celebrety like some other labels. Unfortunatly I thought both dresses made her look a little pregnant. The Pink colour was smashing on her though
Mathilde has the most elegant way of carrying herself which makes even the dresses I dont love look good, and her hair and makeup always looks perfect with the gowns.
Greek state visit to Belgium. The duchess of Brabant wore an outfit from Natan: the beautiful lace top she already wore in Poland combined with a pair of wide trousers. A very elegant effect IMO, it made her look fresh and young and 100 % elegant!
