Mette-Marit is very very rarely dressed well. (...)
I can not understand this obsession for black stockings, especially combined to light colours and summer tissues.
(...)
Mette-Marit does not care about fashion, but this is not bad, since she does not care, she should just dress very simply. A little black dress, or a trouser's suit could be enough, why these strange dresses, half-long, halg short, lace and ruffles.
Fail fail fail.

Truly if MM is not interested in fashion, that is fine. Then, why not wear simple, classic, tailored clothing? A LBD with pearls, a tan/beige trouser suit with varying button down shirts. A very good idea instead of appearing to be dressed from a quick reach into a costume bin.

Absolutely correct. It is so easy for her to appear elegant without spending a lot of time on shopping.
And I'm not so sure that she is not interested on shopping, she rather has no taste.
After her wedding when the couple moved to London for a sort of studies MM was cought on pics spending her whole days on shopping, with Rosario of Bulgaria and Marie-Chantal.
And I remember her carrying the green croco Prada bag, which costed 10.000€.
This is not logic for a person supposed not to care for fashion.

Her fashion choices are very poor. It is past time for her to grow out of the hippie stage and remember who she is. Her hair is very seldom ever styled. The hair parted in the middle with no style makes her look like she does not care. She has the money to dress properly. It appears she just does not chose to do it. Mary and Mathilde are also busy mothers yet they manage to look well groomed and pulled together anytime they are out. She has time to go on these trips for "inner peace" then she certainly has time to visit a designer to help her.

Very accurate post. That is true about the "hippie" style, she indeed looks still having her "flower kids" revolution.
That is non compatible with the CP status and priviledges.

I don't understand why MM must dress in a certain way. She knows that she is privileged and rich, but she comes from a different background. She dresses in what makes her comfortable and uses the amount of time for styling that she wants to put into it.

I like that attitude, a crownprincess (or any other member of a royal family) should be more than a mannequin, especially MM strikes me as a thoughtful, intelligent and down-to-earth person, so kudos for her decision to be herself.

I respectfully disagree, she is paid a salary to represent the royal family. There's a status and a standing that she represents. IMO it's part of the job description to present the royal house in the best possible light. I find it odd that people think the dressing well and being thoughtful and intelligent and well-dressed are diametrically different concepts. Frankly, I think if one can't pull off reasonably pulled together looks it makes one seem arrogantly unaware of ones role and dumb. I have several friends are are attorneys. They're considered the best and the brightest in their field. They make a hell of a lot less money than many of the princesses who are given a pass on how they present themselves because they're "thoughtful and intelligent". My lawyer friends, get their clothes tailored to fit their figures; they have separate wardrobes for work and play; they comb their everyday and when it's unruly they try and pulled it into some semblance of order. They hold themselves to a standard so that when they're in front of a jury their clothes either help or at least are not a distraction. It's insulting to intelligent working women everywhere to say that the manner that one presents themselves shows a lack seriousness.


Also, Prince Charles pays exacting attention to his appearance, always. His clothing is immaculate and expensive yet he's considered intelligent and thoughtful. But the royal ladies who make the effort to look their best are looked down upon because it seems women apparently must either be superficial or intelligent. I just don't agree with that supposition.

I hate the words "she should", I really do
I love fashion, I like giving my opinion about royals´clothes, but I´ve never understand why people dare to judge the quality of a person job by the clothes she uses, really

Well said. I agree completely.

Why not? When we go for job interview, do we dress accordingly to the position we apply for? Or do you simply go for a job interview in t-shirt and jeans for a top management position, thinking that you will be hired regardless the clothings you wear? I considered MM's job as a top position since she is a royal and represent a Country whenever she attends an events in the capacity as a Crown Princess.

I think that you read something into my posting that is not there in both sentences I quoted above. I'm not thinking the way you describe the thinking of "people" and I disagree with both statements.

But the fact is that she hasn´t attended that event in t-shirt and jeans. She´s wearing a dress with a jacket, of questionable taste, yes, but appropriate.

As long as she doesn´t appear in jeans or sneakers, I don´t get all the hard judgement she receive.

When i mentioned about t-shirt and jeans, I am not referring to MM but your comment that you could not understand why one should judge another quality of work by their clothings. Even when one is wearing a jacket, there are certain protocol to follow in terms of company, office culture or the nature of events etc. So comparing a sharp business suit or a frumpy jacket, you think that both are ok as long as it's a jacket so it's appropriate? And by putting effort into their clothings, it shows respect and thoughtfulness of the event, meaning homework are done. Take for example, some royals always incorporate a part of the events (be it a pin, a scarf or some relevant colour code) into their clothings. These are not just for fashion but as a acknowledgement of the events and it's also good publicity when pictures are taken and published. In other words, a public person's clothing can be a life-size publicity palates to bring awareness to the events they attended too. So it's not just put on a piece of clothing and get out of the house like us when they are on official events. In addition, I am sure the organizers of events will dress-up for the events in view that a Royal is the special guest. So what do you think if a special guest shows up in a mess? The problem with MM is that she pile-on too many things which is not age and event appropriate. If she really do not care about fashion, just show up in a simple dress without any accessories.
