I think Queen Silvia has been the best dressed royal so far. The hot pink is just so pretty on her, the coral jewelry with the first dark suit and now the red suit. She looks really impeccable IMO.

I don't like the fuschia top at all. The second dress (is it brown?) really flatters her nice figure. The red dress is my favorite, very elegant and stylish. Are these the only photos there are of these events?

Of course not. There are links to galleries with lots of pics in the topic about this two-day event here:

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…):

I love both outfits. She looks wonderful.

Thanks Boris. I was mostly looking for more photos of the second dress since you can't see the front very well. Unfortunately there aren't any good pics of the dress in that thread. I am glad you provided that link though as it was nice to see all those royal ladies attending the same event!

The new dress that had draping around the neck looked really nice. The color looked really good and the cut was not to figure hugging nor to loose.
The red suit is very classic, fit nicely and looked like a rich piece.
Not sure for the concert outfit. The coat worn with it was to casual and to boring for an evening event. The purple jacket & black skirt is a cant go wrong mix/pieces but it looked to casual IMO.

I love Queen Silvia's red suit. Such a classic style.

I really liked Q Slivia in the Hot Pink Silk Jacket, but agree, that the tailoring was unflattering. The color made her stand out among all the royal ladies at the event, she really does know how to use color effectively.

The Red/Coral Suit is really stunning on Q Silvia, and really looks good with her hair coloring. The black shoes were a poor choice, IMO.

Actually, when Queen Silvia wore the red suit for the first time (last year in Portugal), she went for a remarkable "All-red" look.
Interesting how much more formal the suit automatically appears with different jewelry, red shoes, red hat and even red gloves added:

Wonderful comparison, Boris! It just goes to show the importance accessories do to an outfit. Ah to have a stylist to help put me together...:) I prefer the simple, classic look on Queen Silvia but she looks lovely and chic both ways.

Thanks Boris, you demonstrate in photos my point perfectly! The Red shoes, jewels make all the difference. (great hat too!) It was a better outfit the first time, IMO.

Agree Patra. What a difference. She looks much more regal and elegant in all red. Of course the hat helps too.

Nobel Prize 2009:

Queen Silvia recycled a green dress she first wore for the wedding of Mary and Frederik in 2004.

Nobel 2009
Nobel 2009

Copenhagen 2004

It's a little disappointing to see the Queen wearing a recycled dress for the Nobel Prize. The dress itself doesn't belong to my favourites.
Somehow it doesn't have the "noble" look most her other dresses used to have.

I was dissappointed too. Queen Silvia has many much more beautiful dress she could have recycled, than this.

I agree with you. When I saw this dress I was thinking 'nothing special' and 'hmmm, I remember this dress'... Queen Silvia is a truly beautiful women and she could choose better dress for this occasion..

Not one of her better dresses. Maybe she wanted the girls to shine today.

I don't like the colour of this gown. I agree she could've picked a better one, she has so many wonderful ones to choose from. But she still looks regal and every inch a Queen.

The color of this year's Nobel gown does not photograph well.
The light yellow two-piece dress actually has a top-to-toe overlay of lace, re-embroidered in purple and a slightly darker shade of yellow, and in some pictures it has a very greenish tinge.
Made by Jacques Zehnder, the craftsmanship and detailing of the gown is exquisite, but it's still disappointing: Too old, too frequently worn before, not quite glamorous enough, and simply a bit casual and comfy-looking with its two-piece cut.
Ideal for attending a royal wedding, which it was originally made for, but not for the Nobel awards ceremony.
The side view showing the silhouette with the train is very nice though:
