A blog-entry by Livia Firth about Mette-Marit's dress she wore at the gala in Luxembourg. She says designer Peter Dundas followed GCC (Green Carpet Challenge) criteria focusing on eco fabric and embroidery by using organic silk georgette, crepone and organic silk organza and it was intricately decorated with 100 per cent recycled glass beads.

Adore the dress worn in luxembourg - fanatastic colour on MM. Though the hairstyle is poor with the tiara and that lets the styling down

The purple skirt looks like the one she's worn in Malaysia in 2010.

It's not a blanket, it's a shawl.

I now understand that she's wearing because it was a gift from her host but it still looks like a blanket to me because of the size. She has done v well cos she has obviously put this outfit together to try and match the gift. I guess that is reason enough.

That appears to be how shawls are worn in Indonesia. In fact, it's a great way to show off the beautiful workmanship and design of the piece.

I know the shawl is a gift, but I don't like it. It looks like a blanket to me also.

Very nice silk coat and hairdo. Love the orchids in the hair and the aquamarine brooch.

I like the flower in her hair, but I'm not liking the outfit at all. The color is really boring and she looks like she's wearing a shiny lab coat.

That's exactly what I thought as well about the coat, that it looked like a lab coat. I don't like the short sleeves at all, but her hair looks beautiful arranged with the orchids.

Love the hair as well ... like the idea of the coat but she just doesn't pull it off it's too white and too unflattering I love the flowers in her hair as well.

I quite agree, the hair is lovely with the orchid but the coat's fabric isn't flattering nor is the style. The dress underneath, I wish we could get a better picture.

In this picture we can see at least a bit more of the gorgeous dress.

The shiny coat ruins everything, and I wish that she wouldn't bleach her hair so white.
