What colour was the outfit - was it black? Is it okay to wear a black outfit for a christeing? The other ladies, I noticed, mostly wore lighter colours.

Dark eggplant colour with blue and burgundy accents, too dark, just as Marys sister Jane, they both looked like they were going to a funeral. I thought the ribbon was silly, she is a grown up woman, not 12.

I thought the ribbon was okay, a touch of playfulness as a contrast to the drab colour of the outfit.

I liked the ribbon - a hat, like Jane wore, would definitely have been too severe.

But would it have killed her to wear something light under the jacket instead of the black/dark thing? Had that been another colour, paler, with different shoes and stockings, I think the outfit would have looked lighter, and much better. She can look like a fairy-tale princess when she puts her mind to it.

Don't ask me. I don't understand it either. I mean, it's a joyous occasion, right? And it's not as if it didn't matter what she wore since she couldn't hide in the back rows but was a godmother - an even more joyous thing to be. Sometimes I just get the impression she doesn't care enough.

Maybe because it was so cold or something. I must admit, since we have been seeing Mette-Marit becoming a little more adventurous with her wardrobe (a good thing IMO), I was quite surprised to see her dressed in such dark colours for a christening.

But I did like the ribbon in her hair, subtle but a nice touch.

Well she did just have her third baby and I dont think she cares as much to get back in shape as quickly as Mary and Letizia. She probably still has baby fat on and wanted the dark bigger outfit to cover it up.

i like the crown princess' outfit.. including the ribbon on her head...
the only thinng i'd want to change is the colour.. mette-marit looks really great in pastel or bright colours (like icy blue, pink, or at least a much brighter burgundy colour)...

Mette-Marit also only gave birth after Mary and Letizia did, so they've had more time to lose the pregnancy weight if they were so inclined.

I liked this hat much better yesterday during Sverre's baptism.
