I thought the dress was boring and a dull color, there is nothing special about the dress. Nevertheless, Victoria's hairdo and make up was nice.

I think the "dull" colour is prettier in real life. Plus, both Madeleine and Victoria had white and silver at each others night-before-wedding dinners plus Madeleine in a white-ish dress today. I think they do it on purpose to be neutral and let the spotlight be on the bride.

I kind off want to love this, but there is something that makes me feel meh. I think we have seen this before, so many times and the colour is quite boring and dull. But I guess it's nice dress otherwise and smashing outfit overall with the hair.

Really took my breath away. Nice twenties vibe to it. She can wear such fabrics with her fit figure. Love her hairdo

Tip-top! A very nice dress. Though I find that if I were to choose I would choose the white version on the model. It's a seriously nice dress. Really fine.

Crown Princess Victoria made a little faux-pas during the diner on the eve of the wedding. She wore (a big, clunky) horloge with the rest of her outfits. Ladies are supposed not to wear horloges for evening events.

Look at all the other ladies: Sofia, the Queen, the Princesses, the Hellqvist family, the foreign guests, none of them sported horloges with their evening gowns.

Some of them, especially Princess Birgitta of Sweden and Princess Ursula von Bayern wore sparkling bracelets (I think the one by Princess Ursula was with a horloge hidden in the bracelet). So Princess Victoria looked great, minus the horloge... It surprised me because Princes Victoria usually has eye for detail.

I agree... The shape and dress itself is pretty but that pattern has already been seen and the color is boring

Are you saying that ladies are not supposed to wear a watch with eveningwear, let alone a large watch.

I know in these days of cellphones that is what most use for telling the time but, to be honest, I can't say that I have seen Victoria waving one of those around either.

Etiquette has always been not to wear a watch, to avoid giving the impression that one needs to know the time because one has an appointment elsewhere, or is finding time dragging and would prefer to be somewhere else.

Victoria this evening at Radio Sweden's 90th anniversary celebrations in Berwaldhallen. She looks just gorgeous in this fantastic skirt from Baum und Pferdgarten. The top suits well with the dress and her shoes are fantastic

When I saw this skirt last week in Svensk Damtidning's fashion section, I thought right away that it would look gorgeous on Victoria.

I loved the Jenny Pecham dress, even if it was very reminscent of one The Duchess of Cambridge wore. I believe she did not wear white as a courtesy to the bride and I on the whole like her style but that is only my opinion. I love the way she and her husband look happy together most of all.

I love the blouse. The skirt is pretty but has a very odd length that makes it look matronly.
The shoes are ugly.

I love the skirt and dislike the blouse. I am not a fan of black. I don't recall CPV wearing black a lot!
