who knows... to me there was an effort, at least by some, to wear blue and white (otherwise it would be too much of a coincidence). why madde and sofia chose to do otherwise is a mystery. they would have fitted right in with some plain white dresses and the family photo would have looked rather adorable, what a shame!

IMO - the days when everyone wears the same color in a group photo are a bit over. Lots of family photos now have a main color and an accent.

While I agree that I would have spaced the two tans differently, I think had it been all blue, that it would have looked like Mrs. Cromarty's third grade wearing uniforms portrait.

Just my taste.

It's a fashion thread, which is why the mention of no baby blue for Madeleine and Sofia was raised. I think the BRF was just used as an example as to how this could have been done (for those who find the colours mismatched) rather than a comparison.

Interesting ensemble. I like the way Madeleine put her hair up to showcase the neckline.

Hate the shoes! I had a pair just like them last time those heels were in fashion and I have to say they only look good if a woman has trim ankles otherwise the heels make them look like cankles!

Well..it's not horrible...but it's not great either. She looks rather harsh in the face for some reason...maybe too tan or something.

The outfit looks very Sewing bee to me. Ending up third place and sewn by a retired male firefighter that for some idea thought that Velcro would be a great way to close the top in the back.
The skirt would have Esme howling like one of the dragons in Game of thrones.

Her shoes are Chloe (found by Laura on Twitter), Her earrings are her Ebba Brahe Star Studs, and her jacket dates back to 2009 and comes from Chloe.

Love the shoes, and the skirt length and the nice big slit in the skirt. Just don't like the black boxy jacket, not good for her hourglass figure

Not one of her better looks, IMHO.

I think Madeleine's latest outfit is a bit old fashioned in appearance; more like something that Silvia's generation would wear. I think the skirt would be nicer and more youthful if paired with a different cardigan and blouse/top.

Understandable choice given her announcement. Context is important.
