Don't care for this look at all... way too Queen Mum. It ages her with that hat. Pretty smile, as always, and the brooch is lovely.

I can't decide if Victoria wore 2 pancakes or perhaps hamburger buns on her head, but either way the hat was pretty awful.

I thought that each piece was great sparately but together I didn't like them I thought the outfit was aging on her and I really didn't like the shoes. She is still a star to me though I think she is FAB

Very boring look. I think it's too old for her. That hat is horrid!

Close up of the hat, lovely colours. I like the jacket and the dress combination, the colours don't collide.

The length is more suitable for an older lady like Camilla
Her legs look fat with that long outfit.Victoria usually tends to favor that matronly look.
Both colors are ugly together.The coat is beautiful though
Both coat and dress are a size too large for her.
Nice hat

I like the coat and the colours of both the dress and the coat very much. Don't like the hat, or whatever that thing on her head is...
I think the whole dress / coat combo would have looked way better if it would have been a bit shorter, just at her knees, not below and maybe a size smaller. It looks like both things (coeat esp) are too big on her.

Victoria this evening at the concert of the Star for Life choir.

The blouse is from swedish Altewai saome, very similar than this one

Victoria's dress at the Polar Music Prize was also from Altewai saome.

The necklace is from Marni for H&M

Since this was a concert of young singers, I think that you can dress less formally. I like her braid.

...but can you dress without taste?

Sorry, but this utterly tasteless outfit makes it a bit hard to believe one's eyes... so bad that it's funny.
A horrid blouse made to look as if it consisted of a baggy t-shirt top and a plastic skirt which could be part of a jungle costume for a kid, worn over pressed business pants, with cocktail hour heels, cheap plastic jewels in vaguely African style, plus the hair in a prim braid...? A mind-boggling combo.
IMHO one of the worst royal outfits of this year and a pretty good candidate for the 'Most Terrible' topic, unfortunately.

This is a future queen? Victoria seems to be going from bad to worse lately. Is that a purse of the same plastic fringe that she is holding? It Is a mind boggling outfit for certain, Boris...

Wow.... This is just...wow. I usually try to find something positive about a given look, but this one presents very little opportunity for that. A complete miss in my book. Victoria can do and has done better.

I like the necklace. That's about as positive as I can get about the look.
Love Victoria but her recent fashion choices have not been particularly impressive.

The shoes are not bad . That's the positive I can find

Horrible look, it almost deserves the worst outfits thread. Victoria should get her stylist back who she employed between her engagement and early marriage.

The only thing I really don't like is the necklace.

The jacket is definitely from H&M's autumn/winter collection: I have identical jackets in both red and black. Now I feel like a Princess.
This look is better than the concert one, but it's still just passable for me. Nice but nothing special.

“Things that make you go Hmm…”
Link to ‘Order of Sartorial Splendor’ and its exceptionally funny review of Victoria’s horrid Hula-Lego-Jogging-Outfit from the concert:
