MM fashion at 2011 Nobels
Gala, Valentino

Not liking both dresses. The Valentino dress is too messy and transparent for me, but I love the hairstyle.

The Pucci dress can look nice on a young woman, but not on MM. On her, it looks very cheap and tacky, like an aging Saloon girl.

In general I have the impression that MM is overdoing the tanning and bleaching, not a good look for an almost 40 year old.

Sorry, but her choice of clothing is terrible.
I don't like her dresses nor her hair

I fully agree with you. The Pucci dress is more appropriate for a younger celebrity or actress. I find tan gauche.

The Valentino looked a little peasant-like to me. However, I did favor the Pucci black, but most of the pictures show it from the waist up- wonder how the full view looked?

The Pucci dress was a big risk but she pulled it off well. She looked beautiful!

Oh dear. The full length photo is even worse than the top photos! She just looks so.. cheap. The shoes don't help either.

I love the shoes and it's a nice dress, but it somehow doesn't suit MM very much. Don't think she's too old for such a dress, it's just a bit against her type. Overall she has looked so great in the last two years or so, I can easily forgiver her.

Dress is nice, but she already worn better outfits. MM seems to like ruffles and pastels but sometimes it's too immature for her. I like her is minimalistic style, monocolor outfits. With her Nordic beauty she doesn't need too much ornaments.

You've got to watch the bows and ruffles once you hit age 10. I also never met a bow or ruffle I didn't like, but I know to avoid them or keep it to a minimum for effect.
There is just TOO much for the black dress. I love the lace sleeves, and the shoes, the bow around the neck was just too much.

Like the lace sleeves but the bow is too cutesy for this type of dress.
Luv the shoes with the multi ankle straps.

I donīt like either dress, donīt suit Mette-Maritīs type, IMO. The first one is a bit shapeless and the top is too sheer, in the second one she looks as a saloon girl, yes, it was well said in one of previous posts.
However I like her bleached hair and make-up, I think she looks very attractive in it.

Thanks for this picture, who is the designer of this dress? I like the ruffled color, to an otherwise tailored look on MM!

I like the red dress. The colour and shape suit the princess.

I applaud her or having the courage to wear that Pucci (it's not the easiest to pull off imo) and she does it quite well. But it would look better on someone taller and thinner.

The Valentino is just utter crap.
