I think on her head it might be a band of sea urchins.

I think she was having a craving for sweets...that head band looks like pink marshmallows or Bon bons or those pink snowball cakes in miniature.

The floral print on the dress is beautiful and fresh. The 'sea urchins' head-band suits the nature theme. I must have different taste in formal wear. Her style seems to be for pretty, comfortable evening dresses rather than more stylish ones that make the most of her figure.

I really rather like Mette-Marit's evening gown and have started to like and enjoy the style she has adopted for evening wear. I am not sure about the sea-urchin idea, but I guess if you're going to wear them, Mette-Marit has chosen a clever way to do it - somehow it suits her, the whole ensemble from top to bottom.

I think she looks lovely, very feminine, yet with a touch of elegance.

Her hair always drives me crazy- bleached out with black roots! Horrible...it looks so fake.
A more natural tone would be much prettier...

It's a nice dress, but the rear view is particularly unflattering. I agree that spanx might be a good idea.

Also, I am those shoes look odd with that dress.

Every time I read a remark that some royal women should be wearing Spanx or some such it sets my teeth on edge.

In the '60's and '70's bras were not the only thing they burned (Well actually they didn't actually burn them, but that's a whole other story). Girdles went the way of the Dinosaurs too. And yet here we are in the 15th year of the 3rd millennium, the 15th year of the 21st century, demanding Hollywood red carpet standards for the everyday life of royal women.

Personally, I am persuaded that both the old fashioned brassieres and girdles were a lot kinder to women's bodies than Spanx and others of that ilk. These wondrous creations have returned women to mere objects, things to dress up, look at, and pronounce judgement. They also account for the re-emergence to the concept of fragile, fainting, females. Brides and bridesmaids toppling like cordwood.

Perhaps we should reexamine the need for smelling salts . . . the 21st Century kind of course. Just think of the money high-end accessory designers could make, or even jewelers, there's a whole new market opening up.

I am not sure about the dark roots. I have two nieces who have fair or blonde hair. One is wheaten gold and the other almost white/platinum. Both had, and still have, darker roots with their hair lightening and streaking every summer when the "dark root" effect comes back.

Perhaps MM decided her hair wasn't perfect enough, but in the following photo compilation her dire shift from wheat to platinum with a brief deja vu moment of wheat, we see her hairline and parting seems to vary from day to day and from indoor to outdoors.

With all those advisors MM has/could have at hand, the result is a desaster. Dress too tight, shoes don't match ... I am always stunned how how she manages to look that bad and how sloppy she prepares her public outings.

The shoes is ugly and the dress so tight. Even a black dress is awful on her.

In my humble opinion some of the comments on her are a tad harsh. Where is her husband, so we can talk about him from head to toe? Oh that's right, he is a male, so it is a different set of rules. I agree with the poster who said it is the twenty first century. I am not crazy about the dress, but that is my opinion. I am not the fashion police.

I think she looks lovely although I'm not hugely keen on the shoes. I like her hair despite her tiny roots regrowth.
