The dress is by Jacques Zehnder, hand-embroidered in flower applications and beads all over, and was first worn during a state visit to Austria in 2007:

IBL Bildbyrå - Royaltyfria bilder, historiska bilder, illustrationsbilder med mera.

Not a real favorite of mine, because the embroidery is indeed rather too busy, but I suspect it certainly looks better in reality than it photgraphs.
The matching stole for example is of very light and transparent ottoman fabric, which does not come across in pics.

After arriving late the first day, Queen Silvia did come to the Theater performance during the intermission, wearing the avantgarde red Yuki dress from the Nobel Awards 2007, along with the Leuchtenberg sapphire parure.
Did anyone come across a picture of her from that first night?

Very elegant coat dress - she wear it in the Swedish Embassy in Brasil last month!

It's pity that we don't see pic of the queen on 15th April 2010 in Copenhagen with Leuchtenberg Tiara. She should wear a red(?) dress!

As I said above, with the sapphires she wore the red Yuki dress from the Nobel Award Ceremony 2007.
I hope some pictures might still surface.

If I had seen this gown on anyone else, I wouldn't have liked it at all. But it's always the wonderful Q.Silvia - doesn't need much to shine!!!

Not her best looks. The hair doesn´t look good and I think that black and white isn´t the best combination for her.

I actually like the look - the black & white gown is sleeveless with a seperate train flaring out from under a low neckline in the back. The matching wrap and her set of black pearl jewelry, to which apparently a new brooch was added, complement the dress nicely.
With the slim silhouette and in the stark, graphic black & white, it's an elegant overall look IMO.
Different pics:

I agree with Boris here. Q.Silvia looks very chic IMO. I like the colours, the accessories/jewels and even the hair.

At least is an interesting dress, although I don't like it

The lavender coat with its eye-catching lapels is definitely a favorite - Queen Silvia has worn it a lot, maybe rather too frequently.
It was first seen during a 2006 state visit to Canada, and if I remember correctly it's by Armani.

Boris, I know it - but it's not good, that the queen wear the same dress/coat on the same event as the world look to Sweden!

This lavender coat is one of a kind! It has such an interesting design. Q.Silvia looked fantastic, though she wore too many jewels IMO.

Why too many jewels?
Maybe you're referring to the colorful bracelet she's wearing with her watch: That's the new, 'formal' version of the charity bracelet from Queen Silvia's 'World Childhood Foundation'. Each pendant is meant to represent one article of the UN declaration of The Rights of The Child.

Thanks for the information Boris! It's not just the bracelet (and since it has a special meaning, it's more than fine). I think she wore different kind of jewels that clash (pearls with that blue brooch and a watch with a black, probably leather, strap, and a gold ring and then this bracelet). My point is she would have looked far more elegant if she hadn't used some of these jewels, but she still looks fantastic, as I said above.

True, the jewelry is a bit mis-matched...
...especially as the multi-colored pearls necklace is part of a set which includes matching earrings, and the flower brooch is part of a set with has matching earrings as well.
The double-faced watch is usually worn showing two different times when one of her children is in another time zone, and of course Princess Madeleine is six hours away currently.

I like the design of the top part of this coat. Jewelry is a bit mismatched which surprises me as Silvia is usually spot on.
