Victoria looks stunning. Love the dress and the color. Totally agree Dazzling, I so wish she would wear real jewelry as well.

Victoria wanted to pay a tribute to Oscar de la Renta, the earrings were from him.

Victoria should've matched a belt to the look for it to not look so plain. The original version in while is so much nicer since you got to see the fine lace very clear unless Victoria's dress doesn't picture well. Moreover, I don't understand the hairpiece she used, doesn't match the outfit well not did it look good with that hairstyle.

I'm sorry Dazzling but what does it mean " a conscious collection"?

I liked the H&M gown and the hair piece. I don't like the white wedding gown.

Everything in the HM's conscious collections are made from ecologically produced fabrics.

I love the style and colour of the gown, apart from the lace in the chest area. That spoils it for me. Its nice to honor OdlR but these earrings do not work with the dress at all.

The earrings are stupendous, but not with this gown.

I really like the dress Victoria wore to the Parliament dinner which is unusual because normally I hate just about everything she wears. However, the earrings spoil the look. They are just to heavy against the delicate lace. I appreciate the idea of a tribute to Oscar de la Renta but if she is going to do a tribute to a designer of his caliber, she needs to do it with pieces that work together.

I just wish she had chosen an Oscar de la Renta gown to pay homage as these earrings have too harsh a silhouette against the fine lace.

In fact, the picture itself is beautifully composed. Nicely done.

You are right, it is a wonderful profile. And she would look even better without those earrings. Never mind, I'll settle for a fabulous profile, and this is a very good one as it captures a moment in time as opposed to a posed shot.

The dress is lovely and very feminine. But this is NOT the way to pay tribute to Oscar! His earrings are all wrong for this gown and he would be the first to say so. Way too dangly and heavy for such a delicate top.

In Sweden and Denmark the collection is usually sold online and in a few of the biggest HM stores in the biggest cities. I guess it would be the same in most countries.

Victoria and Daniel attended in the evening at the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences' formal gathering. Victoria delivered the gold medals. She had a very beautiful new gown.

I actually loved the lacy part. It gave the gown a slightly more glamorous look. I wonder if it's removable.
