19.000 kroner are about 2500 Euro. It's actually the price of the Valentino clutch

Too much money for an unflattering look.

A bit better than last night but the dress would be far better in a slimmer body ! Too much pattern
on the dress !! And the head piece is just not formal and not good looking !!

MM's "What Was She Thinking" file is growing progressively larger.

I love MM style, but unfortunately, this is not working for her! This and the other gown, just look more of a night-time dress (bed time).

Oh no! Did she have to take down the drapes in the hotel room and whip this one up herself?
The cut of the dress only serves to accentuate the negative. And, she is proving she doesn't want to wear a hat? And doesn't have to?
Her "hippie" style is showing this outing

The good news is, that she improved outfit by outfit.
But the beginning was nothing but horrible, so it could not have gone worse

Out of all her dresses for this occasion, I'll go with her daytime look.

I think the dress is not bad (on a slim woman) but not on somebody as large-ish as MM. She looks ultra-matronly in this dress. As other posters already said, you just cant pick a dress & wear it because it looks good on somebody else.

And then these flower hairclips... seriously?! Did she steal them from IA because they only look good on females under the age of 10.

Hello to all of you: I find some sentences regarding Mette-Marit very very offending, some of you are only critizing her the whole time in a type of style who is very disgusting. If you do not like her, than please do not look her. I find the majority of you are very jealous, because she received a gift from life: from a simple girl to become a princess. So please stop your criticizm and look to your bodys and brains...!!!!

Another awful dress! The print is simply too much.

You have a right to defend Crown Princess Mette-Marit, whereas TRF members have a right to criticise her fashion choices. It is a usual thing in any fashion thread. So telling TRF members what they should do can be viewed as ill-bred.

I'm starting to wonder if she's doing this on purpose.

If an individual poster generally criticizes the style of Mette Marit but generally offers praise for any of the other simple girls who were offered the gift of becoming a princess, how does that equate with "jealously" for Mette-Marit's status? Just wondering.

To Albina: Of course in a fashion thread you can critize the choice of the cloth, but the art and the arguments (she is becoming fat, how disgustous, and so on) are no words to write.
You can do criticizm in another way, but I find the latest phrases that are chosen here are not more convenient for this sort of thread. I am not ill-bread, I am very polite woman and I do not have said that you should not criticize, my intension was that you have to write about her in a non-offending-way, and the most of you here are offending her a lot and the whole time. This shows me that lots of people are malcontent and use internet to offend.

To Grazie Giraffe: If an individual poster generally criticizes the style of Mette Marit but generally offers praise for any of the other simple girls who were offered the gift of becoming a princess, how does that equate with "jealously" for Mette-Marit's status? Just wondering

You most know that most women critize other women (e.g style, make-up), because the y do not like herself...if somebody writes that Haakon was the only good accesoires of her than it is logical that there is jealousy. And you have to admit that the most women are jealous and have a problem when a women is more beautiful...this is the real word, so do not hide behind some phrases.

Once again it is the fashion thread. Demands to "stop ... criticizm and look to [one's own] bodys and brains..." come across as utterly rude. There are TRF moderators, who can address the issue of "... people [who] are malcontent and use internet to offend". Cheap dramas and accusations of jealousy are for vulgar herd.
