Elie Saab is an amazing designer and I've very seldom seen a dress of his hit a wrong note. If Victoria used his dresses occasionally for big-time events, that would be amazing. Nothing wrong with using her current stable of dressers, but having a major designer like that dress you sometimes is a huge deal. Not to mention great publicity for him!

because the look quite similar, except the swapped shoulders and the detailing on the bottom.
This dress did nothing for Gwyneth Paltrow, but on Victoria it looks stunning!!

I'm glad that Victoria altered it a bit, because the shoulder looks awful on G.Paltrow! It's a beautiful gown - I can't imagine all the work that needed to be done for this piece!!! It looks exquisite!

Elie Saab is an exceptional designer, in reality I don't think that I've seen someone wearing one of his dresses that looked distrastrous. All of his designs are wonderful. Hopefully, we will see CP Victoria in more of them, they seem to fit her really well.

That's Victoria's dress.
From what I can see of the back of Daniel's sisters dress, it kinda looks like velvet, whereas Victoria's looks like silk.

It certainly looks similar, I could see it being from the same designer.

I think the green one might be the same dress just with the belt added. The pink gown is not the same you can tell from the bodice .

Simple and nice, I like the cut of the dress. The flower in her hairdo looks so good.

I like polka dots but I'm not persuaded by the material of the dress. Anyway, overall a nice outfit. Lovely hairdo.

The dress looks an everyday dress, surely not a dress for a formal dinner.
Those flowers looks not good for summertime, not sophisticated and so lightless.
I don't like this outfit

I like the polka dot print but I don't like this dress, it ages CP, and these flowers in hair don't look good. Thumbs down.

This rather average polka dot dress would be a not-too-pretty but okay-ish choice for a daytime engagement in summer, but it's not an appropriate, actually quite disappointing choice for this bicentennial dinner.
Compared to her sister and her mother, dressed down CP Victoria simply looks a bit drab.

Not many people can wear polka dots, but she looked okay.
I agree that Madeleine and Silvia looked better.

I like the dress´print, but I´m not fond of the dress itself. I don´t like the hairdo thsi time.

I like the flower in her hair. It adds a nice touch and the red adds some colour to the black and white polka dots.
