I like the colors of her suit, but I wish that she would have worn her hair down instead of pulled back.

She looks very messy in the top two pictures. Her outfit in the third picture is very boring. She needs to do something different with her hair.

She looks like a business woman in the last picture, and a boringly dressed one at that...

A businesswoman's secretary, maybe - but even then, a secretary who needs to make more of an effort regarding her appearance.
Touroing the Greek theater she has no hairdo, no make up, no accessories, and that pant suit looks as if the fabric was cut from cardboard. This is no way for a Crown Princess to dress for an official visit to a foreign country.
It was even worse when she was arriving at the airport, with her messy hair held unsufficiently together with a 99 cent plastic butterfly clip.
Wanting to project a 'serious' image is one thing, looking just shabby is quite another.

Yes,she has to do something more with almost...everything!For me,she looked older than her age and this is no good.And I also noticed some wrinkles on her neck.She disappointed me completely.These women can get all the help they need and Victoria here looks as if she totally "let herself go"...

This is a nice improvement! I like the coat. The style is very flattering and feminine. It would be nice to see her in some brighter colors, though. I just don't understand why she continues to wear this ponytail. It looks like something a university student would wear.

Boris,your comment seems harsh but I really can't disagree.I really love princess Victoria but I was very disapointed by her look of the first day.
Her outfit of the second day looks much better but again I hate this ponytail and again no make-up.
She really needs to change her hairdoo ,she is no longer a small schoolgirl

Today was a huge improvement! I love the two tones of grey, they look good on her. A little more lip colour with them wouldn't have hurt though...

I've always thought that Princess Victoria has a bad taste in matter of fashion . But, after being searching for a long time what's wrong with her, I think now that most of her fashion disasters come in fact from her hair .
Her last suit with coat could look nice . But she ruins all with this horrible ponytail ! Princess Mary or Queen Rania would have had of far more sophisticate hair-do with this kind of suit ... Why on earth do we always have to see this ponytail ????

Maybe simply to give everyone a good cause to baa or beef or nag .... people find something anyway. It is like the one error made for the auditor or tax inspector ... they keep on searching until they find something, so let's give them something tiny, minor voluntarily rather than waiting until they find something big . It is a strategy to keep life easy

I find life even simpler:
The ponytail is simply bad.
Not flattering on her, not appropriate for many occasions, not nicely executed, not age-appropriate anymore, not prettily 'upgraded' by hair accessories, not ever varied = bad.

Indeed... there was even a video clip of her on board of a plane on the way to an engagement in the Swedish countryside last year, and it showed her 'executing' the ponytail herself - with a rubberband, but without a comb or a mirror anywhere in sight.
She really has gorgeous hair with a natural wave, as you can see whenever she wears it open - which is all too rare. Just fighting the wave and volume by pulling it back so tightly and severe is quite a waste... she also looks ten years younger with open hair.
