I agree. She seems to get the dresses in the last decade wrong and then right and alternates like that to the present day.

Queen Silvia's Nobel Gowns

Does anyone have any good images of Queen Silvia wearing her black and white gown at the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize ceremony?

1985, 1995 and 1997 are just..............no. Especially 1985. God, that dress is just tragic.

All the other dresses were either really good or sort of bad, but not bad enough to make the Hall of Shame.

IMO most of Jørgen Benders gowns looks the same, one colored satin with big skirt and sparkly stuff, he used the same recipe for many of Princess Alexandras gowns as well. My favourite are the zebra dress fromNina Ricci (stunning and dramatic), the black and white one from 1994 by Zhender and the pale pink one from 1999, also by Zhender, they look like Nobel gowns are supposed to look. I can understand Felicitas from Stockholm only got one chance, it looked like she was wearing a left over costume from Gone with the wind with all that velvet and lace.

In post #20...wow! She looks great in this style of dress, even the color looks great on her! She should wear this style of dress, not the puffy creations she tends to favor.

That dress is very "fairy princess". I like it. It's miles better than those monstrosities she wore in the 80s/early 90s.

Silvia was pregnant with Madeleine at that time so it was a maternity dress, a very beautiful one though

I love doing this (tehehe):

1977: Great tiara, dress pattern should remain safely in the seventies

1978: Lovely- the dress seems to perfectly match the sapphire necklace
and tiara, very elegant and flattering

1979: Very pretty

1982: Cinderella, Cinderella, Queen Silvia's Cinderella

1983: Tomato Soup with giant cans for sleeves

1984: a breath of fresh pretty air between two disasters

1985: One big giant swirl of butter with giant buttery swirls for arms

1986: Lovely gown, matches the Amethyst tiara she wore, reminds me a
little of one of the official portraits of Princess Alexandra of Denmark
taken when she was still married to Prince Joachim

1990: Is she pretending to be Queen Elizabeth I?

1993: Such fancy feathers for a jail bird

1994: Lovely

1995: "Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday
dear---oh wait, that's the Queen!

1997: Oops, do you think I should tell Her Majesty that we mixed up her
dress fabric with the new curtains?

2001: da Dum da dum, da Dum da dum, Do you take this dress in
matrimony? Queen Silvia: "I do!"

Nice to see Sylvia's pictures in those "big tiara", parure and gala gown. So far she is the only queen with commoner background who wears one of the most beautiful tiara collection in the world. Sonya of Norway doesn't wear many of big tiara since Norway RF doesn't have collection as many as Swedish RF. Her appearance on the photos above, Sylvia looks like a queen in fairy tale story in children books. I can not wait to see her appearance in the next nobel prize event

At the 1990 Nobel, Queen Silvia was indeed still in mourning, tough for her father who had died shortly before, not her mother who died from Alzheimer's disease a few years later, if I'm correct.
So the circumstances have to be taken into consideration when reviewing her choice of that that rather heavy & sombre dark blue velvet gown (which she had worn before but without the white lace collar).
My prediction for the Nobel 2006 gown is the silver embroidered one she wore for the state visit in Thailand. She really hasn't worn many new gala dresses for years on end, so this is about the only one left!
