Patricia1966, your repetitive criticism of Mette-Marit is all over this forum indeed - just how many times will you repeat the 'Peasant Woman' expression under different topics here?
I find this redundant rant rather annoying.

Actually, I don't happen to be a fan of Mette-Marit's very individual style at all - but I always appreciate it as such when a person does find an individual style of his/her own. Too many just follow the fashion flow, while MM's look is unmistakably hers.
The worst thing about it is her liking for the omnipresent black stockings, which too often look like leggings.
They do not look too good here either, but her cocktail dress itself is very nice, in an interesting fabric with beautiful detailing, and with a very good color for her.

I even do like the black stockings, with normal stockings, the whole outfit would not be as interesting as it is now.

First of all, I think Patricia1966 is entitled to her opinion like we are all are. It may get boring if you're not sharing the same opinion, but you could say the same about other posters who perhaps don't forget to mention all the time, how they love one Royal's style.

However, I too like Mette's individual style, I always prefer that more than the style of people who just follow the fashion flow, as Boris said it so well.
I'm a fan of glam and aplomb in fashion and I don't think Mette-Marit really has that. But otherwise I just like Mette for her natural, uncomplicated look. Only her black period hopefully will find an end now.

Honestly all the CP's can wear pajamas to an event and I won't care b/c they represents her country so well! So what if MM doesn't have Mary's style or Diana's, Caroline's and Grace's? She has her own sense of fashion and feels good about it. Part of being a fashionable woman is being comfortable in your own skin and confidence which she has.

I agree with you! It would be so boring if the CP's all had the same style.

I love this blue gown. I could've done without the frilly straps (it makes it too much going on) but it's still a gorgeous gown.

This dress is simply gorgeous! I agree with ZUBIAUR: she would look stunning with a sophisticated bun

I love the dress! The colour is gorgeous on MM.
It would be great to see this dress with a tiara.
This dress is really... well, "princessy".

When looking at this gown in these pictures, I don't like it at all.

I watched her live on tv earlier tonight, and when she was moving the dress was beautiful. She was beautiful.

The back view of it as I saw it on tv was interresting. It looked too old fashioned for someone at CP Mette-Marits age.

I have a hard time to decide if I like it or not. It is a good thing that it is in a bright color. I think it is the ruffles on the skirt that bothers me, and that I think that a front view and a back view to me seems like it is two different dresses. The ruffles wasn't that obvious in the back of it when I saw a back or sideview of it.

I hope to see more pictures of it soon.

I wonder if this is a Valentino gown? Anyone know?

I am disappointed with Crown Princess Mette-Marit's gala dress. There was something incredibly refined in her choice of soft blue colour. However, the overembellishment (a ruffly neckline and draping on each side) absolutely spoilt this look for me. A sleek updo would have suited her busy ensemble much better.

Dress is by Valentino Resort 2009

The dress is a stunning piece, the color and all the detailing going on in the cut. It is a very flattering dress and I thought the embroidery was just perfect, nothing too much.
One of her best looks.

First off, let me start by saying how much I love the color. Its a nice refreshing shade of Blue. But, I am on the fence about the dress itself. I think the concept was wonderful but somehow the execution fell short of a complete WOW!

I really liked the detailing around the v-neckline but the ruffles just don't do it for me. The hair was nice but I agree an updo would have had a more stunning effect. Mrs. Obama actually impressed me more in the hair department.
