I love Mette-Marit to bits but the entire look is a mess.
The cardigan is out of place, the dress is ill fitting and makes her look pregnant (not saying she is) and those black tights really must go.

Still, everyone appeared to be having great time and looked happy, and that's what matters most, I suppose.

This should be posted on "what NOT to wear", IMO. The cardi & tights have no consistentcy with the dress, disappointed to say the least.

The black cardigan definitely looks out of place with a dress that appears to be very formal. Her hair also looks far too casual here. Not certain what type of look she was wanting to achieve.

I love the dress but why the balck cardigan and opaques I am really disappointed I thought that as she has lost wt and more confident that the tights would go into the the bin but no here we are again spoiling a perfectly lovely dress. IMO

The dress is lovely but ruined with the cardigan and the really dark tights.

Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit hosted a banquet at Skaugum.
- The outfit

There are no better pictures at the moment, but from what I can see, Mette-Marit looks lovely.
The black tights don't look out of place for once, and her hairstyle is just beautiful.

Picture originally posted by fairy tale in current events thread.

Although it's all black I really like her look (from what we can see so far). The dress seems to flatter her and I love her hairstyle.
She maybe wanted her shoes to match with Haakon's.

I think she looks terrific. It is interesting to note that varying degrees of the "Blackout" ensemble have predominated in European royalty over this last winter. Mette-Marit pulls the "look" off with some degree of elegance.

Thank you, fairy tale.
The picture gives a better view of the dress, and my opinion hasn't changes; Mette-Marit looks gorgeous.

The black look is all right. The dress might be by Valentino.

I'm really not overwhelmed by this look; too much unrelieved black!

The dress is a repeat from 2008, she wore it during a county visit.

I love her shorter hair back then, very flattering with the side part and bob style.
