I love this dress! It looks perfect on Victoria. The pink details are really nice, and that shade of red really works for her.

This is one of her loveliest evening gowns.
I love the train on the back of this gown. The pink bows at the shoulders are a detail the dress really didn't need (though I do like the pink band around the waist!). Gorgeous color, a vibrant red.

I like this dress.I love the color and the train.But,I too don't like the pink details on her shoulders but also aroud her waist.I looks too girly.I don't know if it's just me but I think that she wears too much satin dresses.I find this boring.I love when she wears dresses done with with different and more sophisticated material.
I loved this one ANP Beeldbank

Gorgeus look ! Very nice dress for CP. I don't like only this pink accents- I'm not a big fan of combiantion 'red and pink'. Vibrant colour, good accesories, lovely tiara

Very little girly. It would have looked great without the bows and sash. They are the preserve of little girls.

This dress was also worn by Victoria to the Gala during the Swedish state visit to Denmark a year or two ago.

I loved both the red/pink and the light pink Dior evening gowns
They made Victoria look so much young and fresh,like a 20 year old girl,and I like that.She's still very young and she has so many years ahead of her to dress like a middle aged woman

I'm sorry,I have to make clear that only the 2nd light pink-the gala gown-is Christian Dior.Not the red/pink one.Demi Moor wore almost the same at the Golden Globes last month.

Sorry, but to me it does not look at all like the same Dior dress 'altered a lot' for Victoria.

One thing is sure: Demi's dress is an original Dior,because I've also seen it in the Greek Harper's Bazaar(February issue).So what we've got here for our Princess could be a very nice copy of the original Dior dress

Victoria’s dress is not even a copy, because it’s a completely different dress. No wide skirt as the Dior, no halterneck, different fabric & color & tailoring...
The only slight similarity of the two dresses is a banded style of the bodice - and even that is different.

I'd really like to find out as well because it's such a (great!) departure in style for Victoria.
It doesn't look at all like it was designed by her regulars Wallin or Engesheden. Swedish mags didn't carry the name of the designer either, but I hope someone here might still come up with it.

Boris,do you think it could be a Dior indeed?Sometimes famous designers-J.Galliano in our case-that come up with a great idea create different versions of the same dress/gown/jacket/whatever.It's not something uncommon,plus Victoria can afford a Dior dress without any doubt.
