I love the color clutch and shoes but I really dislike the dress. It looks like curtains!

I like the look, it's very elegant and sophisticated. I prefer it without the jacket though.

I prefer it without the jacket, as well. It looks too busy with the jacket, somehow. She still always manages to look smart!

Queen Silvia last Friday at the 64th Baden-Powell Fellowship Event's reception, hosted by the city of Turku.

I just found bigger photos of the outfit:

I wish there would be a big full view photo, but I haven't found any yet. I love the colours of this outfit. Beautiful.

I like the top a lot. Very vintage and regal. But I dislike the huge black coat, it wasn't at all stylish, IMO.

Total black? She looks great, I just wish that coat had been a size smaller!

She has been wearing a total black outfit to almost every Opening since 1976, there have been a few times she's had some white accents but not very often.

The black and white that the Queen and princesses wear is a modern take on the traditional court dress that the ladies stopped wearing in the 1973.

In fact, since 1984.
That was the first year in which the Opening of Parliament took place in its present form; before, it was even less formal, with less ceremony, no royal carriage ride and Queen Silvia wearing all kinds of day dresses.
1984 was also the year Silvia started the homage to the former back-and-white court dress mentioned above by NGalitzine.
Over the years, she has usually worn black with bold white accents and not all-black like this year.
I too wish the coat with its nicely sharp tailoring was a size smaller, by the way.

The coat is a little too big on her but, she still looks elegant. Love the pearls.

The occasion was actually the annual concert in the evening of the Parliament opening, not the opening itself.

This cocktail suit is a repeat, designed by Carolina Herrera and made of floral jacquard silk – here’s the side view in a large HQ version:

The suit is great, but te flashes from the cameras once again skew the look. This is when I wish I could see this stuff in person.

Thank you all for the additional info and the explanation!
The black suit underneath the coat was perfection. Very elegant indeed!
I'm not too fond of the silk suit she wore in the evening though.

The color is nice but I don't like the outfit itself. Not a fan of the design.

She looks absolutely flawless in the gown at the International Gala! Silvia is the personification of a regal Queen.

Queen Silvia's gown worn at the Mentor gala is indeed a new dress – quite perfect, though I believe it will look even better when worn with full jewels, tiara and orders; here, she is wearing the 19th century pearls of Queen Josefina with the diamond clasp in the front.
