Gosh, how many beautiful children and so well-dressed for different occasions.
I love the way CP Mathilde dresses her children, classical yet up to date. Laurentīs children wear more modern outfits but also nice. Beautiful, my darling Irene in her yellow dress and of course what to say of the Norwegian pair who are like out of a fairy tale and the engaging Danish very chic in their jeans. Isabella keeps getting better and better as she grows and you can see she is a little girl who likes to be fashionable too.

^yes i agree!!! i always LOVE seeing the young royals, and sometimes i do more than the royals grown-ups. i also agree with Isabella fashion, it seems she already 'puts her finger' in choosing her clothes, as shes getting older, she is dressing more fashionable, neat, clean, cute and apropriate to her age (it makes me forget those horrible times before Mary got pregnant with the twins)

Leonorīs dress is nice but the colour doesnīt suit her. She needed something pink or light blue or even a darker colour. Like that it blends too much with her skin IMO.

Nice photos, she is such a little lady already
But I agree that the colour of the dress is too bland for her.

I donīt like at all the way the three AAs are dressed and itīs not because they are wearing different clothing. Most of the times they look dishevelled with clothing that is badly pressed. They look like Isabella used to look when she was smaller. Tawdry is the word. And itīs a shame because they are such lovely little girls.

Maybe they chose it themselves because it cosy to wear. Pardon me, but I think that it is a fairly harsh judgement you're making. They're only children, not fashion models. If that is supposed to look tawdry I must have looked downright horrible as a child because my mum let me wear whatever I felt comfortable in.

I think that Amalia, Alexia and Ariane look lovely. It's nice to see them in something not matching, they're getting too big for that anyways.

Leonor also looks precious (and I love those pictures of the three generations).

Tawdry has a connotation of dirtiness or corruption. I don't think that was the word you wanted.

Tawdry is a little harsh for children's wear IMO. You may not like it but they are not dirty or gawdy. Personally, I really like Princess Alexia's dress and the other to are fine. I'd find the outfits "tawdry" if they were too short or too tight. The dress fit correctly for their ages IMO.

I think Leonor looks lovely, but the color is indeed too bland. She's very fair, and something darker would have been preferable. The Dutch Princesses look very cute and comfortable. They weren't there in official capacity, so they looked just fine (and comfortable too).

This little cutie has a lifetime of wearing the most flattering color(s) ahead of her. At her age, she'll look fine in any sweet little frock. That dress is adorable, and actually a bit chic.

I think the word you are probably looking for is NORMAL...they look like normal young girls in non-matching clothes that may look a bit worn and well-loved and not at all what our perceptions of what the word 'princess' should embody...But first and foremost they are just children and children should be allowed to be comfortable and exercise some will in the clothes they wear and this is what I see this as...A very informal occasion with a parental advice being: your choice, wear what you want...And they did!

Isabella has always been nicely dressed. Of course she dresses differently now that she is a 5+ "big" girl compared to when she was 2-3 years old...At that age it's better to dress practically at certain times/events.

No matter how well a dress was pressed when it was put on it would have looked dishevelled or badly pressed after playing on the ground like she did at times.

I think it's great that many of these little Princesses and Princes are allowed to look and behave like "normal" children.

Maybe I had the wrong word, since Iīm not a native English speaker.
But my point is that these are not normal children.These are three princesses and no matter where they are, theyīll be photographed and seen. As a matter of fact Iīve aready read critiscisms similar to mine .And for heavenīs sake, I remember how Isabellaīs outfits when she was little were dismaying people for the same reason.
These three girls were always very well dressed unmatched outfits or not. Lately theyīre not. This is my opinion, and I have a right to express it. Compare them with other royal children and you swill see what I mean.
Itīs not a question of being casually dressed. Christian had on casual but neat clothing for his cousinīs birthday.
Everybody in this forum is free to express their opinion. If you thought I was offensive, that was not my intention at all. Iīm a mother and grandmother and adore children. Iīd never offend a child.

They're royals, but they're still children. They should have the exact same right to wear normal clothes as other children their age. Besides this wasn't a formal event, don't expect them to wear fancy dresses and be dressed up over neatly. They're dressed for the occasion.

Itīs so funny, because a while back when they were wearing those red Mexican dresses, there were several people here that expressed how they didnīt like the outfits, etc..
I donīt expect anything, ARCHDUCHESS. I only expressed my opinion.

sorry but i have to disagree to that, i remenber clearly how Isabella was dressed when she was smaller (before Mary got pregnant with the twins), there were LOTS of ocassions where she was sloppy and many clothes were not exactly fit for her age, IMO, i remenber many people saying the same thing back then.
its just the taste of Mary and probably Isabella (now that she's probably be able to choose some of her clothes) that got way better.
but she wasnt that 'nicely dressed' before as she is now!

I like the three Aīs outfits very much, especially Arianeīs. I donīt understand why all these complains, to be honest I donīt think that Alexiaīs and Arianeīs outfits are different from Leonorīs, really. Amaliaīs one is different, and maybe thatīs my least favourite, but I wouldnīt call it ugly, either. Sheīs the oldest, so she dress like an older girl, and thatīs fine for me
Isabellaīs clothes were just plain awful two years ago, I agree completely on that. Now she dresses very nicely, and even trendy.
Leonorīs dress is cute as always, though a little bland in colour. She obviously is a very pretty girl, so she looks like a doll in everything, IMO. Iīve always loved how Letizia dresses her daughters, their worst dresses would be between the best among the others little princessesī, IMO.

Ok, so we'll disagree then. I have liked most things Isabella has worn even when she was smaller.
She has always, IMO, dressed very much like little girls "up here" in the north do.

How much does cultural differences and climate play in to this, I wonder?!
