Totally agree - this outfit needs binned

I dont like the all the sandals she has worn so far on this trip as those types of shoes are better for an evening event

I'm sure that MM is a lovely woman, but Dear Lord, would someone get her a stylist. I've read that she is a Valentino fan, however, she always looks like she stopped by the local discount store on her way to an event.

Perhaps ... it was meant to be like this ..? I do not think that Crown Princess Mette-Marit would show her underskirt.

I think that is a part of the skirt. I doubt that she would walk around with an underskirt or slip hanging all day long. I have seen a few designs like this, but this one is misleading and does look like an underskirt. The layering here isn't well tailored or perhaps the choice of fabric is the problem.

I think the cream or peach dress with the white jacket looked awful on her. The green skirt with the white jacket looked nice. It shows what a more tailored jacket looked like on her. The red outfit with the beautiful floral skirt looked amazing on her. She really hit the mark with that one. The accessories with it worked very well. Often she puts odd accessories with things and it looks awful.

I disagree with a few posters who say she should not wear a belt. She really does need one. Or she will look completely round without it. She has almost not waist, so the belt gives her definition. It is also the slimest part of her. But the right belt needs to go with the right outfit. A good tailor would work wonders for her.

I think it's the same jacket... but it looks much better with pants!

Indeed it looks better with pants. Maybe if she tied a scarf around her neck and left a button open on the jacket it might have looked nicer. At least the scarf would add color to the outfit.

MM's outfit colors have been all the same on this trip except for the red.

A scarf would be nice... but somehow it would look out of place in warm (very warm) Mexico.

MM's visit to the Culture Institute of Veracruz ... another cream/white dress....

The dress is recycled. She first wore it during the State Visit from Vietnam.

I don't always like to comment about Princesses clothing but sometimes Mette-Marit confounds me with her clothing choices. It is just as well that everyone sees something different and has different tastes because I found the only redeeming quality of Mette-Marit's wardrobe choices on this visit is that there was no black.

My favourite outfit was the red one as I found the rest to be ill-fitted and rather frumpy for a young crown princess. I certainly do not advocate that they dress in the latest haute couture clothing but Mette-Marit seems IMO to have seriously lost the plot with her wardrobe.

Mette-Marit's earlier clothing choices were IMO so much better. Looking back at older photos she has some really lovely outfits that haven't been recycled in a while. I do understand that body shape changes after children but as a princess (even one for whom fashion isn't important) she must surely have resources at her disposal that could help make choices to suit her body shape now.

This is obviously no reflection on Mette-Marit's character or warmth as a person, which is obvious from her interaction with the people she meets. (After all this is the fashion thread)

I do not want to dispute.... but I would like to say, that all outfits of CP Mette-Marit, really all, are liked and admired by me. They please me all. I find all her outfits of a very personal elegant taste. Kind regards.

looking at MM's latest outfits, is she expecting again? The white jacket with pink skirt ensemble looked positively like maternity wear to me.

No, she's not.

And I somehow don't get why everyone thinks she gained weight lately. MM has looked that "chubby" since quite a while now (since Magnus was born, actually ).
well, i agree that she often doesn't dress very flattering. Some of her outfits are quite boxy and make her look quite big.

Her outfits are not flattering and seem to be not suitable for her body shape. I dont think she has gained but the outfit choices are not right. Her posture also doesnt help. If she just stands straight, her stomach wont look like she is expecting.
