She looks very pretty. Interesting shade of green but it works with her beautiful brown hair.

To me this has always been one of the ugliest evening gowns Madeleine has ever had. The shade of green is odd and it shows too much cleavage. The silver lace at the top makes the gown tacky. Madeleine is a beautiful woman and she doesn't need this kind of showstopper as a dress.

I liked the dress better on her when she was a blond, here in 2008.

I think the green works well with her brown hair, but there's a tad too much cleavage on show. A smidgen less showy and I'd adore this look.

I love the color but not a fan of the silver lace with it.

Agree about the cleavage, disagree about everything else. The silver is subdued and light and lovely; the green is rich and pairs much better with her brown hair.

Agree, it's about the ugliest evening dress I've seen on her.

I think it looked a little better on her as a blonde. However, when evening dresses are designed with voluminous chiffon and little lace overlays like this there is an inherent danger of it ending up looking like an elegant nightdress. Match it with a really bad case of bedroom hair and you have a total bust!

Now if Madeleine had sported a very elegant and very feminine up do then she might just have been able to pull this off. Unfortunately she didn't!

Oh dear! How sad! Never mind!

Princess Madeleine in a nice short dress at the 5th annual Swedish-American Chamber Of Commerce Green Summit in New York City today, October 3, 2012. This shade of green looks very nice on her:

Really lovely style on her I am still not crazy about the colour on her but she looks great in that classic cut.

The dress during the day was beautiful, I love the colour and it suited Madeleine well.

I don't like this dress at all. The colour isn't the best possible for Madeleine, the dress is a mess with too much of everything. It makes her look much taller than she really is and the back view surely isn't flattering at all.

I really love the dress but I really dislike the cleavage. There was a historical period when it was considered polite to show cleavage like this, but today is not that period, not for royals who want respect. I guess this is an odd opinion I have...but I prefer the royals who are modest.

Princess Madeleine’s day dress from NYC is by Diane von Furstenberg:

Wow, Halloween is approaching fast! Madeleine looked so pretty in the green dress, the evening dress is plain awful!

Not too sure what she was thinking wearing the evening dress but the daytime dress was a winner.

Thank goodness I'm not alone in thinking that the gala dress was just a "hot mess". The fit & style were just awful on Madeleine. The sleeves were way too big and the rest was just way too tight and sheer. Hope we never see this one again. I can only hope that it was on loan and she didn't purchase it.
