Its a Vera Wang gown, and she has worn it 4 times already, but only one with the ostritch feathers on the shoulders, official portraits before the wedding, dinner for Stortinget in 2001, WA wedding in 2002 and dinner for the bishops in 2004 Crown Princess Mette-Marit's Eveningwear Part 1: March 2005 - March 2009

Well, I would love to see it again one day anyway.

oh, i loved that dress! in fact, i think there's no gala dress of mm that i don't like. while her day clothing is much more austere she really dazzles at night in her gala gowns! she has some lovely ones. it's a shame the norwegian royals aren't as keen on galas as others.

They have quite a lot galas and dinners compared to other Royal Houses.
The problem: many of them are officially announved , but "private"... so: no pictures.(just remember the Dinner for the Bishops... officially announced as a big gala... but not a single picture).

I think she could use more color. Vera Wang and Valentino gowns are perfect for her. Even though she is fair and blonde I have to agree with G.Tiaras that the jewel tones would look absolutely beautiful on her. She could pull them off
easily.

I agree with you completely. She looks fabulous in colour and the washed out beiges that she often chooses really do little for her. A few posts back, Her_Majesty suggested gowns with more drama or colour- I completely agree.

I would love to see her in this, this, this, this, this, or this

I love her streamlined and modern style- I'd just like to see a little less 'safe' eveningwear!

Definately! Less bows and beige and more colour and sophistication. She's tall and thin, she could really pull off some of the haute couture stuff and look smashing.

She always looks great (except for those icky gold pants from three years ago). It is nice to see that even a princess recycles her clothes. It makes her more human.

Royals.web-log has wonderful pictures of the white "angel" dress Mette-Marit wore for the "Angel&Devil Motto" Birthday Party of Marie Chantal and Pavlos in Greece.

Have a look here:
royals.web-log.nl: Glamourprinsessen. Mette-marit.

This was really a stunning dress!
I really hope we'll see it again! (maybe without the wings )

Another of my favourite dresses: the blue dress worn for the wedding of Frederik and Mary in 2004.
Blue Dress1 Blue Dress2
Blue dress without jacket (photo taken from above)

I loved the idea of the dress: the beautiful "jacket" above it. Really clever. I actually liked it better with the jacket then without it.
Sadly I think it is one of the "worn just once and then never again" dresses...

Actually she is wearing a top over the dress (which makes it look like she has no waist), Im guessing its a kind of revealing dress underneath. Kristian Aadneviks dresses are all on the sexy/vulgar side The top she is wearing she has worn before under the white coat she wore for Princess Isabellas christening and in south Korea

I totally agree with you, Her Majesty about Princess Mette-Marit's the blue dress that she wore at Mary and Fredrick's wedding in 2004. That's also my favourite dress! I like her jacket too but not without the jacket. She looked better with the jacket. It looked so beautiful and chic. I love her tiara which is my all time favourite tiara. It looked prefect with the the blue dress!

Dinner for the Bishops 2007

There appeared some pictures of the Dinner for the Bishops 2007.
Mette-Marit recycled the pink galadress she first wore in Thailand and for the official Portrait of the Royal Family, used for their website.
She wore it with a black (or dark purple) belt this time.

Larzen posted some photos here:

The dress looks really nice. I wish we could see it from the front, because it looks like it has some interesting beading on the one shoulder area.

Her dress is ok, but she ruins everything with her hair, it looks awful.

The dress is beautiful, I would say this is one of her best dresses. The color is lovely on MM.
This is a also a big change from the high waisted skirt dresses she has in every other color.

Interesting design. I like the way the material drapes over one shoulder like a sari.
