Looking good. The blue dress is very flattering. Much better than the red one she wore to the Sweden dinner. She's dressed for the occasion. Good job!

I agree. She is slipping in effortlessly. Keeping it low-key. Part of the family. Now for the baby.

The dress is very pretty but the hairdo is awful. She needs a fringe, her forehead to too huge to pull the hair back so severely.

Speech was given in a black&white combo

I really like Sofia's arrival outfit.


I like the blue dress but I do not like Sofia's hair, since the dinner took place the same day she arrived then maybe she did not have time to do anything with her hair, and if so this is probably better than wearing long.

The black and white outfit is nothing special but is appropriate for the event. I like Sofia's hair in this picture and at the Sweden Dinner. I don't have a problem with this hair style on Sofia (or Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge) in and of itself, it is only a problem when there is a lot of fiddling with the hair or if that hair style does not complement the outfit or is not suitable for the occasion.

I think that the dress Sofia wore to the Sweden Dinner is a nice dress overall but I think that she should have worn a dressier dress to the dinner, among other things, it would have been a better complement to her husband's tuxedo.

I agree Carlotta. The color is a great choice and the style is flattering.

This photo says it all. Sofia's hair is relatively fine and flyaway without being dealt to fairly severely by a hairdresser who meant business. Just look at that fine fluff and then look again at the hairstyle she wore for the Swedish dinner.

http://z.cdn-expressen.se/images/4b/...abb/680@80.jpg

You had better believe that hair had been beaten into submission.

I loved the style she wore for the dinner, it was soft, feminine but not overly fussy or inappropriate to the occasion. As indeed was her LBD. I think CP must be so proud of his Lady, she's doing him proud.

http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2015/...0676035559.jpg

I thought the trouser suit Sofia wore was elegant and absolutely perfect for the occasion and, since she was inside in a controlled environment, her hair not only suited her ensemble, it looked elegant. The biggest plus is that in a controlled indoor environment her hair is not exposed to the vicissitude of the weather and she doesn't seem to be addicted to playing with her hair.

http://w.cdn-expressen.se/images/75/...f3b/680@80.jpg

What is apparent from the above photo is, that when needs must she is going to take a leaf from Victoria's book and tie her hair back to present a professional face. And, when time affords, she'll do something a little more special, or rather she'll have time for the hairdresser to do something special.

http://40.media.tumblr.com/90eb12e4d...sagxo5_500.jpg

While giving her speech, she looked fine and even though her hair was down, the big screen shows the story. Everyone can see her whole face, her expressions, how she holds herself, how she communicates and so far it's all good. Initially a little hair in the face but no self-conscious hair fiddling.

What is becoming clear is that she seems to be taking her cue from Victoria and dressing and acting accordingly. So from rain, with damp frizzy hair and gumboots to snappy, pin-striped pants suits, she looks like she means business.

Yep. She only touched her hair a few times, and that was to push it back when it flopped over her face when she was leaning forward to refer to her notes. Perhaps in future we will see those shorter bits tied back when she's giving speeches so that doesn't happen.

She has certainly impressed me so far.

Two fashion items worn by Sofia.

First a raincoat by Stutterheim: https://app.box.com/s/azitjpr4dt23onb86l4fvzslmpvod8t8

And a dress by Dagmar: https://app.box.com/s/pbcup9x8xjc4og0w57aeqm96og2wvy0k

Sofia has been rocking it so far - I look forward into seeing more of her outfits as time goes on. I think she has been having a trendy but conservative style since she married Carl Philip.

The blue dress is stunning.

Sofia looks very nice, and I have to say, that since she married she really hasn't had a major wardrobe blooper yet. Very impressed.
