What a stunning sapphire blue, though I'm not so sure about that bow. I'd have loved to see some of her sapphires paired with that dress.

I think Sylvia looks very fine - but I am riveted by the other woman's white lace dress - just gorgeous.
Full-View. The other woman is also very classy - love seeing an older woman dressing classy with good physical presentation. I think lace is not used enough. I am particularly partial to beautifully wrought lace being back-grounded with sheer fabrics in another color.

Oh yes, that dress is stunning also!

The blue cocktail dress was first worn in 2010, but the top has been altered since - unfortunately, perhaps.
In the original, the complete fabric of the top was gathered loosely across into a loop on the shoulder instead of ending in a not so appealing bow - more extravagant and probably not easy to wear originally, but making much more sense design-wise than the flat bow which is sitting there now, IMHO.
Notice that there is no seam in the top part above the wavy seam running down from the hip - technically difficult though looking simple.

I prefer the original design better, not a fan of the 1980's version bow.

This rich shade of blue is exquisite on Queen Silvia. Absolutely lovely.

I like the first version. That seam looks off and not very well done IMO. Lovely shade of blue!

I also like the original version better. On a different note: Joop looks fab here too.

Queen Silvia wore a very beautiful and elegant white suit during the reception of the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall in the Palace on the first day of their official visit to Sweden. She matched the outfit with black belt, black shoes and stunning black, white and cream pearl necklace and matching earrings.

The Queen looks absolutely gorgeous! The entire ensemble is so well-matched and elegant.

She looked young, fresh and beautiful in that white suit! Two thumbs up.

I'm in love with Queen Slivia's creme suit, especially the waist detailing, and the back is a wonderful surprise. I like the cut of the shoe as well as the hairstyle.

On a second viewing, I never even noticed the wrist brace on her right hand- clever fashion camouflage. Silv's the best, IMO!

I always like when an outfit is as interesting in the back as in the front; mark of a well-made garment with an eye to the details. It's a beautiful suit, love the black and white pearls (especially the triple-pearl drop earrings), and I'm so happy that she wore cream hosiery. Classic!

Everything is just perfect here – a great overall look.
The back bow detailing and belt on the suit are actually not real but an application with embroidery suggesting the three-dimensional effect, a very nice ‘trompe l’oeil’ detail.
Btw., the pearl set worn consists of pearls in four colors: Back, light grey, cream and pale yellow.
