Great colour on her and there's something really interesting about the whole look. But it's not quite 'there'... A more sophisticated hairstyle could have brought it all together better, IMO.

I didn't like anything in Mette-Marit's look last night. The dress is by far one of the ugliest evening dresses I have ever seen. The colour of the dress is lovely though. Her hair colour is awful and I don't like how it is parted from the middle, and I especially dislike how the tiara is on her head.

M-M is a risk taker, and Emilio Pucci is the king of fit. I don't see anything amiss with the cut of this dress. In fact, I think it balanced her out, since she can look wide in the hip and short in the shoulder sometimes.

As for her hair, it was very retro, and I still don't see where people complain about her hair color. The roots didn't look particularly dark? And she's Scandinavian, so the tint of her hair seems natural enough for that part of the world.

Overall, this was a wonderful outing for M-M. FWIW if she's into edgier fashion choices, this is the way to go IMO.

The dress is wonderful, nice color and the cut makes her posture so slim.
But the hair! Awful! Its like she has done it herself before minutes to go. Just all wrong!

MM looked good in her red dress ! The only thing that could be improved is her hair!! I don't think this is the best and suitable way to wear her tiny but gorgeous tiara however she used to be styled her hair in gala like that. Anyway, she was one of the best dress in yesterday's gala

I don't like the dress. The colour is too red, the T-Shirt cut hides her thick arms, but look sporty, the straps look like Herve Leger and her make- up and the tiara make her face look shiny.

The look is a miss for me. The colour is superb but the design is too much and not conclusive (Tshirt like top???). Hair is awful although I really like this tiara.

It doesn't suit her I'm afraid. Her figure looks even more unflattering in this gown. Great colour though, I agree!

Well, this shade of red doesn't appeal me at all. The dress itself is very interesting, but I don't think those short sleeves go well with everything else on the dress. The shape of the body is very good. I like her hair colour but that's all about it - this style doesn't fit her, it makes her look as if she had a small head compared to the size of her body.

I love the colour and the design of the upper part of the dress. I´m not loving the skirt, though.
Her hair is a mess. A bad ejecuted 20´s hairstyle, it doesn´t look right with a tiara.

Great dress, great strong color IMO. The hair was nice at first then looking again it was a bit messy but somehow it worked with the dress. I wish she wears more shades like this.

I don't like the style at all; just the color is attractive. The top is too busy in its design and I don't care for the T-shirt-like sleeves. I can't figure out if she got a haircut or it's the style; either way, I think it's unflattering for a tiara event. Speaking of which, I feel the amethyst tiara would have looked better with the color gown, but the hairstyle wouldn't have done it justice.
