Valentino dress

That is one pretty black dress, I really like the detailing of the lace and the semi high collar. She really pulls this piece off well with that hair do and make up all kept very simple.

She should wear not only Valentino, other designer has also very beautiful dresses. Or maybe she has by Valentino some discount? :)
But I must say, this black dress is stunning!!

The Valentino cocktail dress is incredible. The lace work is superb and black suits the Crown Princess really well. There's something about seeing the Scandinavian consorts in black lace that evokes in my mind a sense of Nordic contemporary goth, and It's beautifully expressed. Delicate, feminine, sensual and sexy.

I think her posture could do with a little work. She tends to hunch a little from what I've noticed. Either that or it's the natural curvature of her shoulders and upper back. She doesn't look so top heavy that it should be a contributing factor and it doesn't truly lend well to a dress like this.

That said, and looking past that, she does look beautiful.

She does have poor posture and needs to work on it, don't we all?
The black dress suits her beautifully

I know many people like change but what I really admire about Mette Marit is that she knows what she likes, what she feels comfortable in, what in fact, makes her feel like a Princess. And she sticks with it.

No embarrassing faux pas with weird fashion, just beautiful feminine and delicate dresses. Her LBD is absolutely divine and I love that lately she has taken to wearing her hair in an almost severe style to enhance the femininity of the gown.

Are these all Valentino? I love the soft grey one shouldered dress. Was this when she was pregnant or just the current style.

Yeah I wouldn't necessarily agree with that myself.

She may know what she likes, but in my personal and professional opinion, her choices don't suit her as much as one would expect of a woman who supposedly owns her taste.

I find the majority of her evening gowns to look unflatteringly clumsy on her. Not all, but most. Her body shape isn't what I'd call particularly feminine, per say, and she often adopts a style which draws attention to her poor posture and square shoulders. It doesn't help that she favours evening gowns which flow consistently from bust to floor and which are at times ageing by detail.

To me she gives the impression of a walking 'block'.

She makes herself look bigger than what she actually is aswell by choice, and I for one can make no sense of it.

I agree though that her hair has been sensational lately. Over the past year or so she has really embraced change and she looks wonderful for it.
