I had wallpaper like that print in my childhood bedroom! The bodice doesn’t fit and the dress is too long. The pretty colors, volume and gorgeous jewels save it

The material of the gown ruins everything, it's look like a plastic bag. Softer fabric may be far better.

A total miss IMHO here. I have a bathrobe almost the same type of floral print and gasped when I saw this. Got my bathrobe out and it is also to long on me......, so even though I like my bathrobe for it is fluffy and warm, this is not fluffy and warm to me.......entire year of noble's awards gowns for Victoria are a big miss.

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.
I totally agree. I thought to colour and pattern was lovely and suited her so well. The waist was very 1950's and the flare of the skirt was gorgeous until I tapped further down the page and found the weird bell-like effect pulling in the fabric. OMG, it was like fingernails on a chalkboard. Had the flair continued to the floor it would have really kicked a**! Instead, it got it's a** kicked.

Victoria looks gorgeous today at the formal gathering of the Swedish Academy in a beautiful velvet dress.

Stunning and must magnificent today, that is one really becoming color on her and she should wear that color more often. I love the style and the way it fit from what I can see, and her hair, WOW, down and so pretty and such a nice change. She looks so happy and content with her life, in love works wonders and she is still that way after all these years.

She had this similar hairstyle at Polar Music Prize in June.
Then a brooch at her hair (at the background)

I love a good velvet gown, and she's always fantasic in red.

The hair, hmmm, better than a big fake bun, but still not top-notch

LOVE the red velvet dress! She looks wonderful in it! Very reminiscent of CP Mary's New Year's Gala red velvet dress.

I don't like the hair at all - looks like a last-minute decision TBH

I totally agree, plus that I think that almost always present bun makes her look like a spinster. And she doesn't need that, she's only 40.

This is a refreshing change
