The dress is beautiful on her (though I have always loved the 2009 Nobel gown more), but I don't like the tiara at all. Somehow it makes her face round and pointy at the same time. Maybe it's just the pictures. Also I think it is way too small to go with this dress.

Victoria is showing a great figure in this dress! I admire her body shape as she just gave birth to a baby about half year ago!! However, I think that to repeat a dress in a crown prince's pre wedding gala is not a good idea while I used to admire she did it in daytime outfit !!

The dress is great, BUT the tiara ??? Which tiara is that and no - you can do so much better, Vicky !!!

What tiara is that ??? The dress is one of her best. But why didn't she wear the steel cut tiara again ? Would have been a total repeat, but never change a winning team!

I agree about the dress being great but the tiara not really working with it well.

Great dress and colour for Victoria, odd-looking tiara...

If it is really another Cut-Steel Tiara, then I would count this one as completely "under-dressed" for a White Tie Gala Evening for the Wedding of a reigning houses heir to the throne.
However - the Dress is one of my all-time-favourites of Victoria´s

That dress is wonderful. I love everything of it, the front and the bacl. The detailing is gorgeous.
The "new" tiara looks fine to me

I like the colour combination and the sleek look, but the jacket doesn't seem to sit/fit right.
Otherwise, a welcome distraction from Victoria's more questionable recent sartorial choices.

Oh dear. I liked the yellow jacket - blue shoes outfit definitely better than this one.

I think this is one of the worst outfits of Princess Victoria, the skirt seems too short, a black blouse with a neckline that does not fit into this jacket.
I think dress would look better with this material.

Victoria's hairdo and make up yesterday evening were fabulous, she looked really good. The Cleopatra-look suits her.
The outfit would have been better, if the skirt had been black too.

The jacket and the skirt are from swedish Hunkydory

Oh dear. I agree with LadyFinn - the jacket would have been ok but the matching skirt is just no-no. Rest all black would have worked.

Sparkly! Too much for the eyes to take IMO. The ruffles make it look a bit frumpy too.

I quite like the pattern and glitteryness of the suit, but the fabric seems really heavy and inflexible, so the ruffled blouse underneath is way too much. Maybe a simple black sweater or shirt would have been better.
The skirt is too short indeed and it looks a little like a lampshade, it does not move at all.

I liked the sparkly suit she wore the wrong blouse with it. I know it has been said she still uses her stylist from the wedding but looking at some of the things she is wearing I wonder if the stylist just picks the clothes and Victoria puts them together.

She looked so pretty, but this outfit is just UGHH! It doesn't do anything for her.

Good grief. This doesn't do her any favors at all, imho. Awful fabric. I love her make-up, but I think her hair style is just a bit too severe.

I think this outfit was fun and appropriate for the concert setting. That type of jacket - which I don't know how to name - is classic. I suspect it sat better in some pictures.

I liked it. It may have been a little short, but I like the silver and black, and it looks kind of casual and fun.
