Empress Merel, she is one of the tallest princesses around and as for thinner, the woman has given birth to three children. Not everyone is Victoria Beckham, for goodness sake

Then don't wear a dress like that. I'm merely saying it would look better on someone with a smaller figure (iow: a really good waist-to-hip ratio). That's all, nothing more. Same goes for the Valentino.

Here's the runway version:

Agreed that this dress could only be worn by a runway model, which, if you saw how thin they are in real life, you would gasp!

Frankly, I don't even like it on the runway model much less on the CP!

I like it. I really really do. It seems so simple until you notice all the lovely details.

It's a nice dress but nothing special.

I can see there's intricate embroidery on the dress and I like the train, but I don't care for the T-shirt-like top. It's too casual a look for me.

Crown Princess Mette-Marit looked absolutely gorgeous. Given the embroidery, my guess is that the dress is by Mr. Peter Dundas for Pucci. http://home.emiliopucci.com/collecti...ng-summer-2012

White is definitely her colour and the cut is great. Love it when she wears bold make-up, only the lips are a little too red, from what I can see.

Mette-Marit looks fabulous! The simplicity of the dress is perfect for her! White is definitely her color.

She looks lovely in this dress. I especially like the little train, takes it from simple to special.

She really looks nice in white. I love the cut and style of the dress on her

I love the shape of the dress but on most of the pictures MM looks really pale. So IMO white isn't her color. And the red lips don't look good either. She's such a natural beauty and doesn't have to wear a lot of color in her face but maybe a stronger color on her dress.

The top part is kinda boring but the embroidery on it makes up for it. So pretty!
