I was well and truely surprised by the skirt . . . and not in a nice way, it looked like someone had thrown a voluminous hooped skirt over the svelte little black lace number. There wasn't enough colour in the top to tie into the skirt and the colour combination had the wierd effect of the black top making Madeleine look very slim and trim and the maroon/wine/??? skirt making her look disproportionately huge.

I don't think I have ever seen such a mish mash of style and colour where the skirt declated war on the top and was chowing down on black lace. Very evocative of Little House on the Prairie. Ugh, just horrid.

I love Madeleine's hair. She has beautiful, healthy and to die for hair but, with that dress it just continued the theme of the skirt, only her (gorgeous) voluminous hair was snacking on the lace top. As a rule I think any evening gown with a high neck needs either short hair or and updo, because when it's loose it's the focal point. All that glorious hair is warring with the intricate lace design.

Nooo! Madde what did you do?

Beautiful hair but hideous dress! She seemed much older and it wasn0t flattering at all

I think this is there worst look she has ever had... But IMO it's the first true fashion mistake so I'll give her a pass

Great analysis of that gown, she looks a mess. As someone here said it reminded her of Kitty of Gunsmoke and she was spot on! She also had way to much make-up on, it looked really caked on in the pictures. She is a pretty girl and all this has distracted from her looks............

That was definately a very, very, very bad choice.
But I think, she did not (yet) get her waist back after the birth. No Problem, I am not a fan of having 2 weeks after birth the weight back...... but there are much more flattering Dresses around - also for 2 Pounds more. Look at Mette-Marit .....

I agree on this... She did the same with the dress she wore for Leonore's christening... I liked it but was too short for the event and it looked like it didn't fit...

Her hair really does look great, finally the perfect color. Love the top but yes with hair up would have been better. Skirt was a mistake, but not a tragedy

Oh dear. I am so disappointed now that I have seen the full length photo! The skirt ruined it for me, as well. It just looks, well, kind of cheap. I disagree about her make-up as I think she still looks beautiful. I just love her hair.

Like some others here, I do think Madeleine's outfit is a bit of a mess. The skirt is actually my favourite part of her outfit, it's the top that I think looks a little out of place. If the skirt had been a dress with no extra colours, then I would've liked her outfit. Her hair is alright.

I agree with other posters. The skirt is all wrong, it makes Madde look HUGE. A most unflattering outfit. Madde herself looks beautiful.

This dress is a total miss for me, too. It doesn't even look comfortable; it looks like something out of 1970s continental fashions.

To me, this isn't so much a case of:

What was she thinking?

As:

What had she been DRINKING?

Gorgeous as Maddie is, THIS outfit was an epic fail that NO amount of jaw-dropping beauty was going to save.

Better luck next time, hon.

SMH.

Madeleine's dress is a total mess. The parts don't look good together. And it looks very "heavy", with her hair hanging down. An updo may have saved the look a little.
The outfit is from swedish designer Ida Sjöstedt.

Weird isn't it that this particularly spectacular speedbump on Madeleine's fashion road is just so awful, such an incredible "ouch it seered my eyeballs" moment that we just can't help ourselves.

I think it is because 99% of the time we critique her outfits, we like or dislike some small jarring note. Perhaps the shoes or the hair and there have been times when everything just hit the perfect note. But this time is like everything that could be wrong, was and it looks horrid.

I can't remember Madeliene ever wearing an emsemble that was found to be uttlerly repellent by so many people.

So I'm just going to retreat to my happy place until the next photos remind us of just have terrific she can be.

Well, I don't find it utterly repellant, and the fact that it is an outfit, by a Swedish designer, softens my dislike a lot more than if shr chose the skirt and top together herself.

I don't find it utterly repellent, either. The model in the photo has her hair down, as well, which doesn't make it right. It just shows that it is the way the designer likes it to look. I don't think that it is possible for Madeleine to ever look horrid as she is such a beautiful woman. A mistake? Yes. Utterly repellent? NO!
