Really don't like it either. Are those brown shoes with the ever present black tights?

I thought the shoes looked black but I could be wrong.

I don't think that crown princess of Norway looks her best in this outfit.

Seeing this dress from 2008 in this particular picture doesn't exactly thrill me. It's nothing special really.

Seeing the 2008 picture just reinforces my unexcited reaction to the all-black attire, which really looks too youngish a style for her. What looks like brown two-toned shoes with black tights has me really shaking my head. Thanks for posting, Larzen.

Crown Princess Mette Marit in NY for the reception and presentation of Nina Skarra's "Pure Fashion" line. Love the color and the shoes, hate the long bow at her waist. She doesn't have straight enough posture so the bow looks scrunched.

I only like the ice-blue color; otherwise, the dress is just too frumpy and baby doll for her.

Great hair and makeup. Hideous dress.
I love the colour and even don't mind the style of the dress; but it's just a very bad fit on Mette-Marit and doesn't compliment her figure at all.

I feel like this dress is for a younger girl.

I'm beginning to think that most of her evening "misses" are really due to the fact that her poor posture doesn't do anything for high fashion. ?????

I think the dress is beautiful but it just doesn't fit on her. It's a beautiful color and the material is nice and elegant, and I especially love the shoes matching the belt; but it needs to be tailored to her body.

The dress was a lovely color for Mette-Marit and her hair and makeup looked beautiful but, although I like the actual dress, I do not think the style of the dress was very flattering on Mette-Marit (but perhaps I need to view clearer photos...).

The dress has an awful fit and cut to it. The bow/tie is quite big. MM pulls the color off but the rest is disappointing.

Upon closer inspection, this dress was not good, IMO. But I do love the color!

Exactly what I thought!!!
Not a good look at all. Those shoes are superelegant, too bad MM has such a bad posture.

I like the dress, it's beautiful. It just seems too big for her.
Anyway, CP Mette-Marit looks beautiful.

The dress doesn't even look that good on the model. The seems look cheap and the overall dress looks unfinished.
