madeleine was for me the best dressed today. i am a sucker for anything by fadi el khoury and this is no exception.

expressen reported that apparently the designers spent hours working on the dress tonight as madeleine wasn't completely happy with it. whatever happened, this was a winner for me. and i guess so it was for madeleine as i am sure she would have worn any of her other many gala dresses if this one wasn't finished to her taste.

Don't want to sound crude but her top half looks massive. Her sister in law, who was an actual topless model, doesn't look nearly so big. Did Madeliene always look like this because it's the first I've noticed it?

I like it. She pulls it off as she usually does.

Often (for some women) after they have children they can have a larger bust after. How old is her baby? If she's still nursing that can also cause an increased bust size.

Sophia is more petite also so perhaps when she's next to or in the same frame as Maddie it's more noticeable.

she didn't look like that at last year's Nobel. While she may have gotten bigger after having kids, the dress is the problem here. It's made in such a terrible way, it makes her top half looks ridiculous.

The entire dress is a mess. A shame as her hair and jewels are gorgeous.

why do you think the dress is badly made? it looks great to me, but i am no expert on tailoring.

as i said before, expressen reported that apparently the designers spent hours working on the dress tonight as madeleine wasn't completely happy with it. maybe whatever you noticed has to do with this?

Whatever the problem I'm sure it was fixed. Madeleine looked like a true princess in that gown; like she just stepped out of a fairy tale. Just my humble opinion.

what they did with her chest area is awful. I think the fabric looks cheap and the way they decided to pin it/sew it/however you want to say it, makes her look like she got a lot bigger, which we know isn't true.

I think Fadi is hit or miss in terms of whether I like the designs or not, but I haven't noticed anything wrong with the tailoring until this dress. The chest doesn't sit right, I guess. Maybe it's the fabric. Maybe it's the tailoring, I don't know. But I don't like it.

This is not my favorite of hers, though the color,is,perfect. The skirt is too much and gives me the creeps. I actually like the sleeves,the best part of all.

Madeleine's dresses from last three Nobels, all from Fadi el Khoury. This year's dress is just badly made and low class compared to two others, and it makes Madeleine look weird.

Her gown last year, paired with the kokoshnik, was perfect. I can see why she uses the designer, the gowns are amazing on her. This years was just a bit if a miss. My favorite gown though by the designer is the one Victoria wore to Madeleine's wedding,

Princess Madeleine -as always- was the belle of the ball, but I feel she has reached a stage in her life and maturity, that she should leave this sort of pinky Disney dresses behind her.

Princess Madeleine's Fashion & Style, Part 7: June 2016 -

Well I actually like the dress. It is certainly not perfect but on Madeleine it works IMO. She looks like a princess in a fairytale and I love the hair and the tiara on her. Very beautiful!

I'm undecided about the dress. I like the design, but somehow it looks a little off on Madeline, perhaps because the colour is not the best on her. She looks beautiful, though, and from the neck up she was surely the most stunning lady.

She looks a bit busty but I quite like the dress. As usual, make up and jewellery on point.

Completely agreed! While I was not a huge fan of 2014 or 2015, they are miles ahead of this dress. What a shame.

i agree while I loved parts of last night, tonight is far better top to bottom. I love the detail and style. Her hair is lovely. I had hoped to see the kokoshnik again but not surprised she us wearing her wedding.
