What a pity, as I thought some years ago - GREAT, SHE HAS IT - (i.e. at the wedding of CP Victoria, she was one of the best dressed!)

Why has she lost the sense for Fashion, which really suits her?

BYe Bine
I think you are right about her being unsure about her style , due to her figure changing , which is still lovely , but you have to dress diffrently when your figure changes , and when she was younger she was very slender , so if you arent used to having that extra weight it can be hard, before any one says anything I think the princess has a lovely figure.

That's just what I was about to post until I had read yours! I could also picture it as a tablecloth too as well as wartime dress material (especially when paired with those shoes, the outfit has a very 1940s/WWII feel). Having said that, it's quite a pretty pattern.

Dress, hair, posture and skin all look horrible. She in NO way shows she is a future queen.

This is one of the most horrible dresses ever, what was she thinking or maybe she wasn't thinking is the problem. Here is this woman who when she got married was so pretty and natural looking and now, no designer clothes, no fat bank account, no jewels is going to help her. She is going from bad to worse and I wonder that's next..............grrrrrr. Doesn't she have friends, family or stylist who can help her. If this is just her picking her clothes she certainly does not know how to dress for most occasions.

I always come to the Mette Marit fashion thread when I need a good laugh. I rarely leave disappointed.

Anyone familiar with the People of Walmart site? Most of MM's ensembles could make a Princess of Walmart site.

If she does, she should dismiss him immediately.

Yes she gained weight, but not soooo much. I know people with more weight and they dress very accordingly and nice.
Yes, she does not like fashion, but she could dress simply, not extremerly trendy, but tastefully. Simple trousers, simple dresses, it is not so difficult to find, especially when you have money.
Nevertheless, I do not really believe that she does not like fashion, because on her first wedding years she was very expensively dressed, and while in London, she was running the shops like Prada all over the days.
I just believe that she likes too much designers and she becomes a victim of sellers, advising her to buy things do not fitting her, just because they are luxury items.
Surprisingly, the field she less misses is the evening dresses, sometimes she has nices gowns, maybe because you take the full gown, if it is nice it is all nice. She always fails when she has to combine, she has not taste to do it.
It will be funny when she will become Queen....

I think she went wild for the expensive clothes off the Paris runways when she was first married and fell into the trap of listening to these people who would tell her anything and everything that she wants to hear because they knew she had the big bucks to spend. I don't remember where I read and saw pictures, yet I believe that there is a sewing place int he palace for QS to have her clothes fitted to her, these people surely could make simple tailored trousers, dresses, coats, an entire wardrobe for her and it would be much more cost effective also. I think the way she is dressing is showing something that is going on inside her, I know moderators, it's speculation yet having had tons of experience in that field, as so many others have, it's not hard to spot somethings in life that are going on in people when you follow or watch them closely. Her hair is so bad, it's looks like it is going to fall out any day now, the color is atrocious on her, her make-up is off, even her posture is slouchy and forget her clothes.........therapy time and less pressure is in order! Stress is a killer, and I know this is true 100%...........been there as most of us have!

I do not know why but this photo gave me a creepy feeling..the hair and her face colour looks ghastly - she looks like a old woman trying too hard to look young. But she is one of the youngest Crown Princess (same age as Mathilde) among the 'M' Crown Princesses and young Queens generation. And I have not even touched on her dressing yet. She put on some weight but I do not see it as a problem - Grand Duchess Maria Teresa has the same problem but she is always such a pleasure to watch. With her money, MM could have some perfectly tailored outfits instead of been a Brand slave.

Missed seeing the 'old' MM years ago.

The photo and the look are unfortunate, indeed. It is nice that Crown Princess Mette-Marit does not use excessive beauty treatments though.

What do you mean by excessive treatmennts? She does not need.
Her face just need stop self tanning, another color of hair, and another hairdo, in fact a real hairdo, because she just not have one..

The problem is she doesn't know how to dress for her shape and has no clue what looks good on her. I would think with all her money she could find a designer that would help her to dress in the correct clothing.

I meant that Crown Princess Mette-Marit did not use too much botox. I fully agree with you about tan and better hairstyle.

Sorry, I like that dress and I don't see anything wrong with her face, she has the normal face of someone in her forties. A pic not photoshopped, which becomes rare !

What beauty treatments are you talking about? I can't recall anyone nor an article in the news that said she had beauty treatments of any kind. Please show a link to that reference of her beauty treatments?

Al_bina stated that Mette-Marit does not use excessive beauty treatments, not that she does.

She also repeated and clarified this two posts above yours.
