The color is lovely.

I love the earrings

But the dress is ill fitted, probably do to lack of support. And overall the style doesn't suit her. She looks much better when she goes simple.

I like her choice of earrings!
Yeah, I think her breasts are where they’ve always been, even with nursing.
It’s the high waistband and all those ruffles + a turtleneck collar that makes it seem like there’s no support. Trust me, there is no way a nursing woman with a bigger cup size leaves her house without some heavy duty support.




Anyway, I love her hair and her earrings.

I agree about proper undergarments, they are much needed. I don't like the middleparting at all, hairstyle is a bit sloppy with hairpins sticking out.
The dress could have been nice but looks cheap/badly done.

Nice colour dress though a little ill-fitted and I wasn't mad about the parted hairstyle it doesn't suit Sofia.

The dress on the model has a completely different upper part. I'm not sure the model version would have been in sync with the venue. Sofia's upper part was the best for the venue, and public sensibilities maybe (imo).

The Queen and the First Lady both had hats on when they were outdoors, and most likely took them off when they came inside. Sofia probably didn't get the memo...

On the other hand, horizontal stripes are DEFINITELY NOT flattering for her figure...

Definately too much volume on the skirt part, makes her look wide indeed. Looks much nicer when you cover a bit of the skirt both sides with your fingers. Or if it was a floor lenght dress it would be fine. With her body type and height a knee length, stiff, wide hem is just not flattering at all. I like the hat and overall I think it's a well coordinated outfit.

At first glance I thought it was not a good choice but it is growing on me. I would like to see it from different angle.

Completely agree with you about the dress making her look wider than she might actually be, and the hat is terrible. One thing I can say, is that I do like the texture/design of the fabric. On another cut of dress it would be lovely.

I'm wondering why that would be a bad thing? Some of you have echoed this idea. (BTW I actually think the dress looks great). Is it so bad a thing to appear to be 'larger' than one is?

I have occasion to work with some young girls regarding body image and this being slaved to the camera lens image (as self image) is a key element we discuss.

I like this dress. Would love to see the design up close. She looks great.

The evening dress is a much better choice, the fitting is perfect and combined with her lovely updo and the tiara with pearl tops I think she looks great, very pretty!

What's going on with that neck bow? Is this dress another product of H&M?
