Crown Princess Mette-Marit's Designers: August 2004 - April 2007
I will start with her wedding dress, it was designed and made by Ove Harder Finseth, the Queens seemstress Anna Bratland also helped make it. It is made with inspiration from Queen Mauds dresses. The tiara is from 1910 and a gift from the King and Queen

The wedding dress
Top from Märthas prewedding youth party from Stella McCarthy
(I think this is a good hairdo for her, it loose and styled but at the same time out of her face, I also like the colour for her, I wish she would use more strong colours like this)
Liv Tyler has a similar top from her friend Stella McCarthy

Just out of curiosity, I get the impression Mette-Marit, Mary and Maxima do not wear much by national designers--it's always Prada and Valentino and such. Is that true or a misconception on my part? You would think they would support the locals, like Mette-Marit's sister-in-law does, for example.
On the contrary Mary wears alot of Danish designers, her 14 day trip to Greenland and almost and all of her formal gowns are made by Danish designers. She likes Prada and wears it well, and she occasionally mixes up a Prada piece with that of a Danish designer. She also wears on many occasions pieces of jewelry from Danish designer Marianne Dulong.
Princess Máxima seldomly wears anything drom Dutch designers, which is a pity because I am sure there are lots talented fashion designers that she can choose from. However most of her outfits are from Natan, a Belgian designer.
