I agree with everyone that the black dress looks horrible. The style of the dress is wrong for her body shape. It looks like she doesn't have any bras on and I think it looks frumpy on her. I don't like her dark black socking but her shoes is nice.

I do not think the dress is that bad, its just nothing
it doesn't make her looks good or bad, just none

Perhaps national clothes is a good way to look good when you don't know what to wear

The style is very similar to her bright pink one. This works better than that one, thankfully.
Its very dark but not black so points to MM for that.
I'm going to wait in the hope that there will be more pics before I 'judge' it though.

MM looks beautiful but a bit washed... maybe a little more make up would be great

The fabric is very nice, and the length is good, but to be honest I think that I would prefer it either without the sleeves or with a different neckline. Just me, but I think it would differentiate it from the pink dress and also give this one more of its own point of interest.

EDIT:A dress like the one below has more shape to it, but is a similar cut. This is the sort of thing that I would like to see MM try, even without all of the detailing the lines are more flattering for a womans body.

The evening dress is quite pretty, she can pull off such big print because of her height. Like the color as well. I would love too see this dress off the shoulders and/or with a more open neckline to give it a younger look. is this a new dress?

I like it but think there is something missing - the cut is very, very conservative, almost a bit boring. But still a good appearance.

It's by the same designer. MM actually wears many dresses of that designer.
The green dress for the Henne Cover, the light pink one for Harald's birthday
and the beige one for Willem Alexander's birthday were also made by her.

Yes Duke of Marmalade good way to put it the gown is boring her makeup is pale and uninteresting. The gown looks too small I just can't decide. She also needs style guidance or a change of imo.... she lacks any of the appearance of a CP.

I quite like MM in blue, the dress is ok. I agree that she needs a bit more make-up.

It seems to me that Mette Marit is making an effort not to make an effort. get it? She seems to have gained some weight as of late ( I am not criticizing) I know from my own experiences when I let myself go a bit, and the extra ponds piled on, I hated myself, and made no effort to lok anything special untill I got back into shape.

I like the color of the dress, but the bow looks silly, and the neckline and sleeves are wrong. I feel like the dress would look better without the sleeves and bow, and definitely with a slightly lower neckline.

When looking at this link, I see CP Mette-Marit in a navy outfit with a white/offwhite hat with some navy stripes on it. I really like that outfit! The CP has always looked great in navy!!!!

Tha gala dress on the other hand........not the best I've seen her in.
Color is ok, but that is all. I think the cut of the dress suit women much older than CP Mette-Marit, it is possible to find a moore youthful looking dress for a 35 year old Crownprincess.

Better luck with buying a new gala dress next time CP Mette-Marit.

Ah thanks for that HM, makes sense now.

Thats sort of what I was getting at with Brenda Strong's dress.
Would take 20 years off her age with just slight adjustments to her dresses.

I agree with you totally. The print is lovely but the cut of the dress is not my favorite on her. The color is great, but she needed to do something different with her hair and makeup.
