Well, perhaps she thinks they´re not horrible at all....

"Dana Press" claimed the CPss appeared "fairylike" "beautiful" and "exquisit" at this gala banquet! How much taste can differ....!

The dress is from the Lebanese designer Sandra Mansour.

The dress is two sizes too big. The pattern is possibly pretty, but the fit is not good at all.

Imagine the thought: fashion is subjective! What a crazy idea

Reminds me of Princess Grace in the early 1980's

I agree, cdm. I think MM looks lovely but the gown is ill fitting. A shame as it is feminine and MM's style that she usually looks good in.

I don't like the gown, and its also not a flattering look on the Crown Princess.

I so want to like what Mette Marit wears, but this is just another in a series of bad choices. She has as rather "thick" waist (I know she has back issues, and perhaps cannot exercise), but these prints do nothing for her. She looks as if she is wearing a nightgown. JMHO

I like she is wearing a tiara, that is about it. Dress looks either like she borrowed grandmas night dress, or at the very least, made a dress from grandma's couch not flattering or attractive at all

I love Mette-Marit's hair, tiara and makeup which is a truly lovely look but, there is no way in hell you can convince me that Pokemon-type cartoon characters belong on a Gala Gown!

i can see the craftmanship in mm's dress. i think it could be beautiful, but the size is far too big. if it was properly sized/tailored it would be a whole new story. not saying it would be ground breaking but a lot better. like this, it looks like a shapeless sack of potatoes.

And I'd bet that the vast majority of us here could not afford to even look at the fabric in the gown. Which I have chosen to see as whimsically elegant.

This is just terrible. The dress is too big and just plain not attractive. She looks like she went into a thrift store and this was hanging on the rack and she just decided "why not". Sorry to be so harsh, but she has much better looking dresses.

I still think the problem is that the dress is far too big on her! Even that said, it is hardly flattering. Her hair, makeup, and jewels are lovely, however.
