It seems this is the same dress Madeleine wore 2 years ago. I never liked this dress. I love the style but I think it's too much.

It is a great dress, and looks better on Victoria because her hair is up. The dress looks more serene and calm when you can see the whole top part before the pattern starts. Elie Saab dresses look always good on Victoria. I like her soft hairdo.

A glimpse of the brooch at her hairdo. I hope it is a royal family brooch, not some accessory.

Since Victoria has worn many Elie Saab dresses, maybe the dress has always been Victoria's, Madeleine normally never wears Elie Saab.

Ah, here we are.

For formal gala events Victoria tends to have an updo. They are very practical for many reasons, not least she doesn't end up eating hair. When you are seated at a banquet table etiquette dictates you converse with your neighbours and if your hair is down a la Catherine's favourite style, every time you tip your head even slightly narrows your peripheral vision. So, when Victoria does wear her hair down at a gala you get this sort of effect:

Many swedish reporters have told in various interviews, that Victoria hates her hair down and open. Earlier she had a ponytail and during the last years she has her hair at a bun. And that is a very good choice, she looks very stately and regal with her hair up. And it seems to me that it is the image she wants to give, besides the plus point that she doesn't get her hair to her face when it is down. Obviously she doesn't like that. She is the future queen regnant, and she is preparing to that. As such she is a woman who lets her personality, charisma and warmth come through and doesn't want to be defined with how fashionable her clothes or her hairdo are. She trusts that the Swedes love and respect her because of what kind of person she is and the work she does, not because of her clothes or her hairdo.

I agree Lady Finn, Victoria puts her best foot forward whether she is wearing a tiara and gala gown or a hard hat and high vis safety gear. She always looks like she has figuratively rolled up her sleeves and is ready to get into action.

She knows that when she is "on duty" so to speak, that her personal preferences take second place to what she is there to do. So for me, I can't wait for the next Nobel Ceremony for the most shallow of reasons. She knocked our socks off last year and I can't wait to see what comes next. And, the best thing is, she's actually working for the SRF and Sweden!

Everyone wins!

recycled green dress for Victoria, I never liked this dress on her, the colour and sequin style looks very cheap and Las Vegas. The tiara only adds to that.

I think the gown is okey, however the gown ang the Cut Steel Tiara is not a good match.

She carries it off very well, IMO. I would never wear such a gown and I wish she had chosen something else to wear, but it's Victoria. She will always look graceful, never cheap.

I love the green gown. The color, the cut, and the style are exquisite. She looks very regal. Although, I did not like it for the Nobel Prizes.

This isn't my favourite evening gowns on Victoria, but this evening she looked really good on it, much better than at the Nobels. The cut steel tiara suits well with the dress. And the strong colour of the dress doesn't need big jewellery. And because it is summer, it's nice to see a dress with a bold colour.

I don't like much that dress either, even because green is a difficult color to wear... But I agree that Victoria looks much better tonight than the nobels... I suspect it is because of the make up: not brown shades... it changes all IMO

I do not believe this gown was cheap in any way. Not in cost or effect. It definitely deserved another outing. I loathed it at the Nobels and now, looking at the formal photo, I see that it was the Jeep! That totally unappealing four button tiara had the effect of squaring off her head creating this odd, flat-headed look . . . ugh!

The use of the Steel Cut tiara with this particular gown was a very well-thought-out strategy. The light, airiness of the tiara with it's high centre point echos the width and depth of the neckline of her gown creating a totally different effect. Bravo Victoria, she took the lemon and made lemonade.

I agree. Victoria looks to have slimmed a bit so the gown sits better than at the Nobels. The color is gorgeous and goes well with the Queen's ensemble. All three women look beautiful. A very nice picture.
