The top of this outfit is really pretty. I love the fabrics and colors. I can't tell if it is a top and skirt, or a dress. Does anyone know?

My bet would be skirt and top - on the above linked picture it seems as if the colour of the top is slightly brighter, more pale, than the one of the skirt. Also the drapery doesn't seem to be consistent.

I did wonder that to be honest but concluded that it was a sheer jacket because of the detailing and the way it sat, but I could be quite wrong

I think it's a nice gesture on Victoria's part that she opted to wear something less revealing but I think the outfit is a bit of a mess. The colour is ok but the sheer "bell" sleeves are horrible and the overall style is very mature. I would epxect her mother to wear something like this.

I don´t like this dress at all. Here´s good photos:

The top is not beautiful and it makes Victoria look much older than she really is.

How does the top make her look older? I really don't see it, if there is anything that shes wearing that has a 'older' look to its the necklace. Honesty I don't think that those are sleeves, more like something shes wearing over/with the top.

I quite like this - it is nice to see that the top works well enough with the shorter skirt.
Its quite a nice outfit IMO in that no one could accuse her of being 'sloppy' and yet its not excessively formal.

I like this top with this skirt. It has kind of a 1950s look, but it still looks modern.

This dress is not my favorite, the gunmetal color is pretty, but when someone, anyone, wears this color, they have to have he right makeup and hair, which IMO Victoria did not. her other outfits on this trip have been lovely, but this one is not my favorite.

This outfit is rather similar to the one she wore on WA's birthday party in september 2007.

If I remember correctly it was by Escada.
I quite like it; although I prefered it with the long skirt (the way she wore it in Oslo).

I think it was 'best' with the long skirt but I'm really pleased that she wore it with the shorter one.

Troonopvolgers!: Victoria in India

i dont think this is a flattering cut of a dress on Victoria at all - it makes her look matronly and big.
in response to questions about the sheer sleeves - i think it looks like a stole rather than part of the actually dress

Oh what timing, she must have been able to sense the conflict over her clothes. "who are you calling boring?

The dress is beautiful, and she would look much more beautiful without the ponytail.

This must be one of the ugliest cocktail dresses I've ever seen.
Gorgeous purple color ruined by big and tacky gold print, poorly tailored like something from 1987 'Dynasty', plus an unflattering banded neckline.
Sorry, but IMHO it's horrible - and judging by the Bollywood star's facial expression, he seems to be less than impressed as well.
