Well, it wasn't ugly per say...but the black dress she wore to the Danish wedding was entirely inappropriate. I mean, who wears BLACK to a wedding?! It was a nice dress, but it was not fitting for the event AT ALL!
yeah... like 1 time... maybe 3 yrs. ago at the pgfusa thing in nyc... she was wearing a clashing 2 piece green & gray combo at the 'after awards' deal... & she was très angry with herself... cuz... she wouldn't let anyone snap a shot of her... & so she was left totally out of the photos of that part of the shindig... but she looked totally ok b4 until she changed!!! & when she goes casual... it's totally casual 2!!! i mean like u'd think she was going 2 wash her car!!!

To me, in all the pictures I've seen, Princess Caroline goes for a look I'd describe as sophisticate, jet-set chic. Sometimes, she drops that completely, like, at the Danish wedding with that stiff black number and that gigantic tower of hair topped by that anal-retentive crown- i don't say tiara, because a crown is what it looked like- in other words, much too large and imperial for a wedding like that- (the whole garb aside from making her look like a widow, made her look older as well). She has made faux pas like this, but, aside from that, she's bang on with her intentions and the majority of her look- although I would recommend more spring colors to her- especially light blue and peach, as they would be much more flattering to her age and bone structure than always wearing basic black or taupe as she has tended to do. I do fear (not too much, as too much fear over things like this is stupid) that she'll go towards frumpiness as she gets older- which, to be honest, would accentuate her wrinkles and make her appear to have many (which, if you've seen pictures of her without makeup, she has quite a few- but, she's a 47 year old smoker- that's what the devil sticks will do to you) Ok, seems like I'm getting much too long winded for my own good, so, I think I'll now take a deep breath and search my apartment for my inner zen. Love, peace, and rich husbands to all, Grecka

I wouldn't call it a "faux pas" but I think she looked quite messy at the wedding cerimony in Spain.
She looked absolutely (she even won Hola's competition) ravissant at the dinner the night before, but for the wedding she looked as she had picked the first thing from her closet. (Her hair, the way she hided below her hat, her almost washed out face )
I would say 90% of time she looks very elegant. But I miss her happy look with the first husband. It was a happiness that made her glow above the dresses the make-up...
I agree. Some one named her the best/worst dressed at the wedding. By far the best dressed the night before and one of the worst on the day of.

Over the years .. I have seen Caroline - like with that stringy black and white creation, and at the Spanish wedding - with the occasional outfit that just doesn't seem to 'fit' some-how ...
let us imagine ourselves in her stead, and wring our hands just a bit .....

I think Caroline looked stunning and very beautiful when she wore the dress you have on ur avatar Tosca (1990's Rose Ball & Carl Gustav's 50th), the blue dress for 1988's Red Cross, and the floral dress from 1978's Red Cross Ball.
i like the black dress she wore to Letizia's (wait or was is Mary's?) wedding...black is a strange colour to wear to a wedding but i though the dress really looked nice on her it looked real elegant! ^__^
