Queen Silvia never fails to impress me! She looks so good in the red beaded dress, and I like the cape as well. I wish we could see the purse better, it sounds very interesting....The Jewelry IMO, could have been better, perhaps something with Rubies, and chandelier style earrings, in lieu of a necklace.

IMO quite perfectly glamorous. Late-1930s Hollywood inspired but adding modern elements, with jewelry wisely understated here and the cape a great choice to wear over it.
A detail: Her purse is in the shape of a deck of cards (the hearts, of course) set in colored rhinestones.

I don't like the dress on Silvia, looks quite tacky.

Thigh-high boots are tacky... necklines too low might be tacky... platform peeptoe shoes are tacky... black nail polish is... but this gown I don't find tacky at all.

I have to agree. I'm not liking all this red lacey material the Queen has been wearing lately. She has a wonderful body, no one is disputing that, but, these clingy lacey dresses are not good for her. I hope she gets this out of her system before he daughters' weddings. I really don't want to see clingy lace at that event.

There's not a single piece of lace on this dress...
I wouldn't want to see her in those 'clingy' glamour gowns at the wedding festivities (or the Nobel Awards) either, but anyway we won't.
Queen Silvia always makes the distinction of wearing more regal, elaborate gowns for formal occasions and reserving the sleeker dresses for less formal, glitzy night events - where they belong.

I came across a better view of the purse with the 'Queen of Hearts' in rhinestones - the 'King of Hearts' is on the flipside, making it a whole deck of cards.
The purse was actually included in the 2006 exhibition of the Queen's Nobel dresses, though she has never carried it at the ceremony.

I have to agree. From the very beginning the queen has been dressing in very elegant outfits. A bit on the conservative side but never tacky.
BTW I have seen her wearing this dress before. The bouquet of flowers was a bit too large but I do not supposed she can be blamed for it.

I think it's a good classic outfit.
Queen Silvia looks wonderful.

The purse with the "Queen of Hearts" is lovely. I'm glad we had the chance to see it clearly.

Queen Silvia always dresses appropriately and elegantly. She rarely disappoints me. And this red dress is no exception. Very nice!

It's a cute idea for a purse. Beautiful red dress!

Red is a good colour on Queen Silvia.
Boris are you saying the purse is made from an entire deck of cards in some way?

Of course there won't be actual cards... The motif is a deck of poker cards, opening like a book in the center and held together by what appears to be a thin leather ‚belt’ with rhinestone clasp.
Sorry, but the pic in post # 368 is the closest view I could find online.

It reminds me of the designs by Judith Leiber that are sold here in the states.... Her designs include everything from frogs to lady bugs and just about anything one can dream of.... all simply exquisite! To own one is to display it somewhere among your treasures, after wearing it, of course. :)
Wonderful close-up, by the way...

Thanks for the explanation Boris. I understand now. It sounds like a clever design.

I have a weakness for purses (I own 50!). What a novelty item! Oh her dress is nice too.

Yes, she has some unique designs. I wish the Princesses would be more creative with their purses/clutches. They can really add to the outfit.

I don’t care much for the jacket & skirt combo worn by Queen Silvia for the UN convention of the Rights of the Child jubilee concert – a cocktail suit or dress would have been nicer, and though the strong color is good for her, the soft tailoring is muddled and unflattering:

But IMO she was the best dressed during the day in a new dress, draped around the neck, sleek and fluid, worn with her coral set:

On Day 2 of the meeting today, she wore a favorite Jackie Kennedy style, nice red suit (next to a collegue who dressed as if it was ca. 1925…):
