Exactly! I don't think it is very pretty, but imagine it in a solid, pretty colour and it would have been a nice dress!

I think the dress works for a church service. A jacket in black, or red would have livened it up, and better foundation garments would do wonders, but that's about it. Nothing to make a fuss over.

The dress looks tight in the top and it makes her look busty in a cheap way. This dress is drawing criticism on other boards; when Sofia is being compared to Kim Kardashian in this dress the outfit is a fail.

A lot of people can't wear this colour - I think she pulls it off really well and looks smart and appropriate.

She was probably just focusing on the ceremony, Carl Philip and Victoria don't look terribly happy either. But, I can understand why you would think that.
Thanks HereditaryPrincess, I believe again it is one of those, 'split seconds ' caught forever by the camera thing, so glad I am not royal !

Yes I agree. If chocolate brown shoes and clutch with gold. and chocolate earrings of small gems and long strands of matching gem necklaces would have been worn, believe outfit would have been a stunner and no nasty complaint would have been written.

I guess this somewhat singular article from Royalista can be put here: Does Princess Sofia dress like Kim Kardashian? | Royalista

Royalista refers to Svensk Damtidning, which had today two articles about Sofia and Kim Kardashian looking alike. Here is the other

I will say this ..... the all one color was beautifully matched and that is a difficult thing to accomplish. Not a particular fan of the dress but .... oh well .... some days are better than others. If this is the worst Sophia ever does then she is doing just fine. As to comparisons to Kim K., good grief NO!!!! Just because she has long dark hair and occasionally wears a form fitting dress (not tight) does NOT make her a KK look alike.

I agree. Better undergarments would make a world of difference.

The dress for me is okay, nothing exceptional, I would have looked better with a jacket.

I bet Sofia picked that dress thinking it couldn't possibly be controversial because it was simple and neutral! Personally, I think it's fine if a little bland - some contrasting colour or jewellery would have helped.

Bless their heart! Sofia must've torn her hair out trying to find a black dress, a couple of white tops and black bottoms in order to sartorially imitate Kim Kardashian. But at least the Daily Mail is mixing it up and not claiming that every other royal and celebrity are copying Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

I don't necessarily find the dress inappropriate, but I do find it ill fitting and I just cannot stand that color. A little beige is fine, but an entire dress is just ugly, imo.

And I hate turtlenecks, so that makes this dress very ugly for me.

i agree. the dress is fine and neutral, it just doesn't fit well and makes her look washed out. the double colouring of the hair doesn't help either...
