I looked at this gown again and again even on different websites, so I do not like this gown, in fact I do not like anything about the way Victoria looks tonight. I really can't stand the pleats, the collar, the hair, the shape of the tiara on her. There is nothing I like, the tiara does not belong on Victoria, it is the shape of her face that throws it off, it belongs on Madeline with her blue eyes, that was made for her. The gown, to much there, it is overpowering her I thought. Yes the color is nice as most like blue, in whatever shade of blue.......I do not like any shade of blue so the color does not suit her, it belongs on Madeline also. The hair, that part is so off, she needs a softer style of hair for a change, this is not a business event in that sense. Everything was off IMHO for Victoria and that is rare. Her very best gown was that gorgeous red ball gown she wore a few years ago, that made her an instant queen IMO.

Hold your ears M Payton—I thought she looked lovely except for the collar.

It is the collar that made Victoria shrink........it looked like her head was sitting on her shoulders with no neck........this is not a good style for Victoria, this needs a woman with a very long neck to carry it off which she does not have. Maybe if the gown had a different neckline, with sleeves it would of worked, this did not work for me. I really liked the detail work on Sofia's gown, those tiny buttons on her sleeves are gorgeous and really make that gown stand out for me. Everything about Victoria's outfit tonight was off IMHO of her. We agree to disagree here Ms. Jersey!

The dress is pretty, just that collar is a bit much. Loved seeing her in the aquamarine kokoshnik, she does look lovely. But after having seen Madeleine in it, Victoria’s outing pales in comparison.

Without comparing I think she looks fab

Cut off the collar, simplify the neckline and I think this is gorgeous. I'm not sure it's the right shade of blue for Victoria, but I love the way it fits her.

I don't get the dislike. If Victoria looks good in a turtleneck (and she does) then this should be the same thing. It is. In fact, I think the collar works with the tiara. The tiara is pretty dominant, could be overwhelming, and as it is, that collar complements the tiara. JMO (of course). Victoria looks great.

No, to me this doesn't look the same on her as a regular turtleneck. The joint between the bodice and the collar is far too prominent and a little too low, so it makes the collar look strangely wide for one that's going up so high. That combined with the pleats and almost ruffly bits on the collar make her neck look stumpy, wheras a more streamlined turtleneck makes her neck look elegant.

The print is very beautiful but I dislike the fabric on the bottom of the dress.

Wow, Victoria surely knows how to surprise! Two surprises with Nobel dresses this year. Yesterday's blue dress which totally suited with the Arctic Theme of the Nobel ceremonies this year.
And today! This wonderful new flower dress, totally different than yesterday. Great choices with the jewellery, not too big guns so that the dress can get the attention it deserves. The dress is so beautiful, and it is from one of Victoria's favourite designers nowadays, swedish Camilla Thulin.

Plus points for Victoria for wearing swedish design on both evenings, and it is always great to see the Laurel Wreath Tiara on her.

Interesting analysis, but 'stumpy' is okay by me.

It does look too long and stiff, like it's standing on it's own. Lovely colour and pattern, though.

are we to assume that she made two dresses for victoria and we may see the red and black dress in the fabric sometime soon on victoria?

i like the fabric, but agree on the skirt looking off.

Actually, Camilla Thulin wore the other red and black dress to the Nobels herself on the 10th.

I think all in all this look is a little busy. As lovely as that necklace is, I think this particular dress could have done without it.

Victoria- impeccable sense of duty, dubious style

Excepting the under bust fold which is either/both a posture/fit issue, I am enjoying this. It's grand. The fabric has a antique vibe and the colors in it are heavenly. Victoria can do ball gowns well and this is an example of that! I bet it was wonderful in motion. Pretty, pretty, pretty.

She seems to be in a semi large motif print period in her choices. They are not safe choices, but I do like the change of pace that they bring to royal watching!

I like the colour and the print, truly. But that FABRIC, what is it?! It looks kinda shiny, and reminds me of Daisy's yellow raincoat. The bottom half seems like a deflated balloon.

I can't believe I like neither of Victoria's Nobel dresses this year. She usually stuns me with at least one of them.

The pattern and color is beautiful. I love the top half, looks stunning

But I agree on the deflated balloon look to the bottom

Bit disappointing. While she didn't have any bad look, she didn't have a wow look this year. She usually has one breath taking look that blows everyone else out of the water. Not the case here.
