I think the color and the gown work well on Mette-Marit, but the cut of the sleeve should have been longer for a winter gala IMO.

Loved the gown on MM. The colour suits her colouring and I didn't even mind the red lipstick.

I liked her dress and really suits her. The hair style is also nice.

Live the dress and evening make-up, just perfect.
But hate the way she wears a tiara, makes it look so insignificant like it is just an accessory

Thank you so much, Iceflower. I had despaired of ever figuring out the details!

Really like this dress - white is a great colour for Mette-Marit. I would have prefered her to wear the diamond and amethyst tiara to provide a contrast
This is the stuff of fairytales

The dress is a lovely piece but its simply ruined for me with the short/t-shirt sleeves. I would've loved this dress to be cap sleeves or of the shoulders with a slightly lower neckline.

Great dress, very delicate! I'm just not keen on the hairstyle - too flat and I think she looks nicer when her hair is side-parted.

Yes, the back is definitely more interesting than the front; thank you for posting, Iceflower. I still think the dress would have looked nicer with long sleeves or straps and a scoop/sweetheart neckline to give the top a more evening look. And a more elaborate hairstyle to showcase that small tiara.

Yes, cap sleeves would hve looked better. Loved the close up and you can see the silver sequins, silver and white ice princess.
All she needs to do is pull her shoulders back and stand up straight! (takes one to know one)

Mathilde looks wonderful in the white dress. She pulls off white well with her blond hair.

or get her a better tiara. The one she always wears looks so pathetic compared to the other royal ladies.

MM looks wonderful in the white dress. Although her tiara looks less impressive comparing to the other ladies, it is a lovely jewel, quite delicate, but still beautiful!
