Her Best

Okay these are my personal faves.

One of her better maternity outfits. Photo courtesy of DPA.



I think she looks FABULOUS. And unlike Maxima whose style I love...she can wear these type of shoes. You must have the ankles for it. Source: SeegerPress.


Only Laurentien could pull this off! Souce again Seegerpress.

I like these gowns also. I like the last one especially, until you get to the shoes! I mean, what is she thinking? Wouldn't you wear WHITE shoes? Its like she ruins it and its so unnecessary!

When she gets it right, she usually gets it perfect. You have to give her that. Of course, it works the other way too!

I don't think her dress was "not bad". Her dress was stunning!
in fact it must have been the best dress she wore so fast.
The veil and the whole dress looked really beautiful, imo.
Well, it seems she has more terrible dresses then nice ones, but sometimes she really wore beautiful gowns! (like the one she wore for MM's wedding!)

Princess Laurentien and Princess Mabel do have more freedom than Princess Máxima, who -as Princess of Orange- is bound to a bit more conservatism.

I'm happy that the Princesses use their freedom to wear designs from young, avantgardistic and contemporary couture-designers, no matter how much they might clash with the Grace Kelly-image of a Princess topping a wedding cake.

Moreover Princess Laurentien and Princess Mabel are strong and independent women with outspoken characters, who are no 'fulltime royals' and earn their own income. It is their full freedom and right to wear what they feel attached to. For so far I have seen wonderful and also absolutely awful designs worn by them. But never it was scandalous or inappropriate, so the ladies do know a certain limit indeed.

This would have been nice if she hadn't worn the carriage horse blanket over the dress.

Carriage horse blanket???

It is a most impressive bordeauxred silk stole with golden inside and decorated with embroidery! Undoubtedly the stole (embroidered by hand) was as expensive as the gown itself!

I agree with Empress, the dress itself was very nice but to put the stole over it was too much. I agree though that the stole by itself is very pretty but if she wore a simpler, red dress, one that was not too fancy she could have dressed it up with this stole. I feel it's two mis matched pieces put together, but individually they are very pretty. I just don't like it on the same outfit.

We must not forget that Princess Laurentien wore a stole.

A stole is a shoulder scarf which is only to be worn to cover shoulders during some moments, for an example during the church service and during the walking to the awaiting limousine in the chilly Norwegian night.

She could have worn a fur coat, whatever. Instead she wore an empire style stole which matched extremely well with her empire style gown. The embroidery of the stole came back in her gown. Her elegant 19th C diamond diademe was the topping.

She was one of the most regal dressed royals of that night in Oslo.

When I said "...not bad!" I didn't mean that I didn't like it. I actually loved her wedding dress. I meant it as "Wow!"
And I do agree that she has her hits and misses, but hey, we all do now and then. I admire her for having the courage to choose such expressive outfits with those wonderful colors and wear them in public. MORE POWER TO HER!

It's still ugly. And I don't like it with that dress.

The best thing is that Princess Laurentien did apparently like it and was visibly glowing and happy in that empire robe. She has to buy it, pay it, wear it and I think she has made an awesome impression.

Well I guess we agree to disagree because like I said, they are nice pieces but they don't go well together. And I'd actually perfer her in a fur coat better. The last pic you posted of the red halter dress was beautiful and there is a distinct difference between that red stole and the one she wore to the Norwegian wedding. The stole with the halter dress was smaller and thinner, the one in Norway was bigger and practically swallowed her so we couldn't see the beautiful dress underneath. Too big for my taste. If I were her and it was chilly that night I would have braved the weather for the short walk to the limo and she also has a little sheer jacket on top of her dress, underneath the stole that is covering. But that is just me and my opnion.

I like this last red halter dress much better. It looks good on her with her hair like that too.

You're talking about bad outfits here and you totally forget about this hideous pair of pants...


(seeger)

I actually think the pattern is nice, but not for a pair of pants. Next to that I really don't get the cut of the thing. It's so tight!

Laurentien also wore a jacket with this pattern which I like a whole lot better:

What does that have to do with anything? I could care less who bought it. It's ugly, it's too big and it detracts from the dress she's wearing.


I get the feeling you don't like people poking fun at her fashion sense....or lack thereof.

I like the jacket, but the pants just don't do it for me at all. That pattern is ugly. In a skirt, it might work, and a top would be best.....but not pants. They look like shiny leggings to me.
