I loved Queen Silvia's Nobel gown this year. It was so elegant, and it looked absolutely beautiful on her.

I´m not so fond of the Queen´s hairstyle yesterday, it makes her look older than she is:

I agree with you about her hair. It looked really stiff. It was the only thing that didn't work. Otherwise, she has looked so beautiful during the Nobel events.

This dress is Natan. He added sleeves for her and closed the front because on the runway there is a long split and you could see the models thighs.

I would very much like to see this dress in its original version! I wasn't able to find it on Natan’s own website, so could you please be so kind and post a link to the picture you’re describing?

Silvia looked nice. But thats about it. I'm from the camp which likes to see new dresses for the Nobel ceremony. The gloves were a nice touch, and when you look at the detail (embroidery) on the dress that is nice too. The colour is good, but I prefer those of her daughters, as they flattered them more.

I wouldn't say that 'nice, and that's about it' is really a fitting description for Queen Silvia's Nobel dress.
You hardly find this kind of exquisite embroidery with its three-dimensional quality anywhere anymore (it's actually an embroidered lace overlay on the whole bodice), the beading's pink touches are a perfect match with the pink topazes (and doubtlessly made with them in mind), the overall silhouette was great, and it's the kind of regal gown that can only be worn by a Queen these days.
All in all, one of my favorite Nobel dresses of Queen Silvia.
It's her custom not to wear new dresses for the ceremony (last year was the only exception), and I really couldn't care less if this gown by Jacques Zehnder was worn (only once!) before in Denmark.

Yes, the white Gnyuki Torimaru (formerly Yuki) gown worn by Queen Silvia at the Bicentannial dinner has been seen several times before.
It was first worn for the state visit to Japan in early 2006.
IMO it was a great to choose this dress with its Camelot-like flair to wear along with the medieval-looking golden chain, which is part of the Queen’s Finnish order. A very elegant overall appearance.
Here’s a closer look at it:

I love this dress. White is a very difficult color to wear, but Queen Silvia wears it really well. I also like the way that the Finnish order looks with the gown.

Thanks for the close-ups of her hairdo - I just couldn't figure it out in other photos.
All in all, I prefer her hair worn in an up-do with a tiara.

This outfit is a little too bright for my taste.

I like this suit, but maybe it would be better with some other part, maybe the bluse, blue like shoes, gloves and bag...the hat is very singular in my opinion, but nice...

Queen Silvia's outfit is all right. The design of the suit flatters her figure. The orange colour does not become her much. The bright colour situation was further aggravated by shiny material. Although whimsical, the headpiece looked nice on her.

Nice suit, but the colour
I would call it "garbageman-orange" http://www.awista-duesseldorf.de/cms..._winkender.jpg (garbageman in Germany are dressed in bright orange)

The cut of the dress is nice, the headpiece is weird.
