I love the color...but the style...it's just matronly. I don't like the top part of the dress/outfit.

The dress is too tight to a church event, at many photos too much is showing, the bow at her hair is awful and she should have had her hair up, now it was a total mess.

To some other event her outfit would have been fine, but not to a christening at a church.

I like the colour but not much else - the fitting is off, too tight around the bust, loose at the back and the chocolate box ribbon in her hair looks silly.

I don't see the dress as 'too tight' at all. It is merely form fitting but she was truly covered up, and, in fact, her dress fully covered her knees when she was sitting down in church, unlike all the other royal ladies in her row. That tells me she is aware of presenting modestly, and she is definitely not trying to draw attention to herself. IMO she dressed appropriately for the church.

I notice her bow is the same pink color as Estelle's.

I love the color of the dress, but that's it. The style is aging Sofia somehow. The hair is a disaster. It looks like she rolled out of bed, put the bow in her hair and left the house.

I agree fully! I loved the dress. Very modern with it's 70s feel in the model :) I'm so so on the hair and bow. Not hating it, not loving it. And the dress is not tight! It's fitted.

I'm not sure about Sofia today. The hair is okay, but she could have done better. And the bow ... well, I'm switching between Yes, it is nice and No, what a silly thing The dress is nice (color and style) except for the arms. I can't help it, but I always have Dianas wedding dress in mind when I look at Sofias arms today. They look to 80s-inspired for my liking and I don't like 80s fashion very much.

The dress was nice but maybe a jacket or coat would have completed her look.I didn't like the bow in her hair at all.

I think Sofia looks fine. The dress is modest and covers everthing it needs to cover, and it's a lovely colour. But it's too 80s inspired for me to like it. I don't recall 80s fashion with fondness. I couldn't stand those bow-things around the neck in those days and my opinion of them hasn't improved with time. And that big bow in her hair is ridiculous for a woman her age, in my opinion. Bows like that belong on little girls, not grown women. I suppose church-going protocol required her to wear something on her head and she went with the bow. I also think this would have been a good time to wear her hair up or tied back.

I think Sofia's dress was nicely fitted rather than tight. Either way, I loved the soft lines and colour. However, she needed an elegant updo instead of sausage curls falling out with time. It is not a good look on an adult, but the ribbon fascinator could have worked on an updo and made her at least look elegant.

But my best in dress was a tie between Princess Victoria and Princess Madeleine. I loved Victoria's ensemble and the colour and cut was quintessentially Victoria. Madeleine's ensemble was a total surprise. Her updo with the beautiful hair ornament was really elegant and worn with a dress that started with gold and sage and varied down through lavender, lilac, blues, pinks and finishing at the bottom with the same, almost magenta, colour of her fascinator. Utterly brilliant.

[QUOTE=Frelinghighness;1828357]She looked wonderful, great color nicely fitted dress, and the only lady whose knees were covered when she sat which shows she is trying. Loved the 70 vibe with the ***** bow and gathered sleeves. Those sleeves are very in now
Loved the bow, she could carry it off. Her deportment was excellent

I liked Sofia's look. Loved the color of the dress. I didn't like the color of the hat. I think it should be a more intense shade to match the dress. She was one of the better dressed royals today. can't wait for the Nobel celebrations.

personally I hated her whole look. Too many bows. bows at her neck, huge bow on her head, bow on her order. Overkill. The bow fascinator would have been appropriate for a girls baptism and w/o the netting. her black clutch purse with the rhinestones was more for evening. her hair...oh God, don't get me started on that! I hate it. I looks as if she was running late and did not run a brush thru it! As for the dress itself, I would have had it NOT tailored as much as it was. Because it was tailored to perfection, it gave the impression of being to tight, therefore giving the impression of being wrong for the occasion. If it was loosened up just a smidge in her bust area, it would have been very appropriate. But overall, it was just not her day. She looks very messy.
