I love the "Mermaid"-dress she wore in Greece She looked great that day.
I think Cinderella is right. She has a unique style and most of the times I like her dresses because they look good on her. The dresses alone could look a bit strange, but on her always great

So true

I think the orange dress looked horrible on her and the brown pantsuit is... well, let's say ... interesting

I am surprised to see that jumpsuit between the evening dresses.

Thank you for the recap of Maxima's gowns. I love the floral gown that was first worn in Thailand.

It's so difficult to chose a favourite! I love the pre-wedding gown though!

Agreed! The cut and drape of those two are particularly beautiful!

It's so interesting to have these dresses all side by side. Mary certainly does very well when it comes to evening wear. I often wonder- is her stylist the one with the great taste, or is it Mary herself?

I liked the gala looks in the upper row. Others are not my cup of tea.

I think it's the combination of both. I mean, the way I see it: Mary has her own style and ideas, she knows, what she likes, and, according to her ideas, her stylist is picking what's best for Mary.

As Mary decided to hire Anja, it is quiet likely that they have a similar idea of what suits Mary

The Elie Saab gown was breathtaking and Victoria looked amazing in it!

Thanks for your explanation
The dress worn to Prince Philippe's 50th birthday seems nice.

For me the dress she wore in Greece was the most beautiful for her this year.

Although some of her choices are a bit more 'unusual' compared to other crown princesses they work for Maxima because she has such a vibrant personality.

For me my favourite this year was the bright pink with the black sash. She suited this colour a lot that I would have thought she would.

I really liked the two blue dresses - my favourite was the blue with the pink sash she wore for Margrethe's birthday.

I thought the blue she wore at Victoria's wedding was also beautiful and was the best dress of the Crown Princesses that day.

MM has made some fashion mistakes in the past but this year I thought she really shone. Hopefully it will continue into 2011.

Loved the red ruffle dress and also the lighter blue from the Greek wedding.

I really liked the teal green from Margrethe's birthday (although I think she may have worn this previously?). I also really liked the white dress.

I didn't really like the aqua and lace dress she wore to Victoria's wedding although I think I am probably in the minority with this one!

I agree the Elie Saab was amazing and Victoria looked stunning. I also really liked the black and white striped dress.

Victoria has been really happy this year and has shone in her evening gowns with her beautiful smile on her face.

Of Maries evening dresses this year my favourite would have to be the red one. With her dark hair she looks very dramatic in red.

Marie seems to have worn a lot of paler colours this year and although she looks nice in them I would like her to have the confidence to wear more colour next year.

I liked all the dresses although nothing had a huge 'wow' factor for me except the green one at the end where the top looked like it was two cabbage leaves.

Sorry I couldn't think of how better to describe it...

I tend to agree, it's a beautiful dress I suppose, but it makes her look older than she is in my opinion.

However I'm in the minority for sure on the orange dress (which I really liked-it was different and a risk, but I loved the color and the way it popped!) and the brown pantsuit (which, again, I liked....). When did she wear the pantsuit?

All the dresses are nice except for the 7th. I don't like the floral top and the lenght of the skirt
My favorites are
1 dress 8 --> lovely for summer with a really nice colour on Marie
2 dress 3
3 dress 6

I really don't like this first one and number 7.

Great gallery, I love the two Elie Saab gowns: the one she wore the day before her wedding and the one she wore recently (Nobel Awards). It's hard to top these appearances, IMO.

The first one is creative and I like the position of the straps. What I'm not fond of is the first and third below.

I think the choice in this case is tough as all of them are cute to my taste!

I love the first creation and Mathilde's radiant face. In a nutshell, this gown is my favourite.

The one with the hat is unusal indeed. A very vibrant option but I think I simply can't chew it over..
