You're really into statistics, aren't you Josefine...? I'd say Queen Silvia has worn the dress now for the sixth time; it was first seen during a state visit to Japan in 2007.
The white gown is by Japanese-British designer Yuki (= Gnyuki Torimaru), who specializes in draping and gathering fabrics into shapes, cut on a circle with a minimum od seams.
Here in a terrific Grecian silhouette, gathered below the bust, falling wider below the hips, and finishing in a train in the back - understated and elegant IMO, one of my Yuki favorites on Queen Silvia.

It's an elegant look, I like the black top in particular.

I really like the black top. It's unique and goes nicely with the simple white trousers.

This dress has a very lovely colour, but otherwise I don´t like it. She could have her hair done better.

Queen Silvia's gown is by Japanese-British designer Yuki (= Gnyuki Torimaru) and was seen only once before, at the Imperial state banquet in Japan in 2007.
In Yuki’s signature style of seam-less draping of tightly pleated fabric cut on the round, I like it a lot – an original design in-between Fortuny and Japanese influence, great fuchsia color, interesting silhouette.
Along with it, Queen Silvia wore her new ruby and diamond pendant, first seen last year.
Two more pics from last night:

So happy to see Queen Silvia out and about after her recent hospitalization! She looks wonderful, especially in that color.

I can't decide between nice and strange.... The colour looks lovely though.

Love the color, don't like the design of this dress. She kind of looks like she's about to take fllight or something. Different is good, but this is too avant garde for me.

The gown is interesting, I adore the color. I saw pictures from state visit when Q Silvia wore it with grander jewelery and sash, it looked much more better. The worst is the button in the middle, reminds me piece from my mom's couch. But overall not bad. I like new haircut.

Yellow suit is nice, but I would prefer beige accessories.

Love the fushia dress on Queen Silvia. I'm not sure anyone but a Queen could really pull this off but she looks lovely. I also Love the jewels. The bar brooch adds such a nice touch!!
