I'm with the others re this dress. Something just doesn't look right. Flawless hair and make-up, however!

It's like the designer couldn't decide- Ballgown or trouser suit? It's like they started out thinking ballgown , changed their minds halfway through.
Looks thrown together.

I love the color but not the style.

Silvia today:

It looks to me like she is wearing a Whiteley Hat- Philippa Pillbox Hat with Feather to be exact. What do you think?

I'm not sure if I've commented on this one, but I like the outfit Silvia wore during her visit to Latvia. Is it a repeat from her birthday gala? I'm sure I've seen this outfit before.

Here's a full view of Silvia's lovely outfit today, just incase any of you were interested.

I'm just not liking this coat on her. It makes her look dumpy, and I don't like that it is shorter than her dress. Queen Silvia rarely makes a mistake, but this is one time she did imo. It lacks the smartness and elegance she usually has.

I don't know if I should post this here because it is an old article- however here is an old article about Silvia's hat maker.

Also- here is an biography of her

Queen Silvia recycled one of her worst dresses, the cheap looking red dress from Madeleine's pre-wedding dinner and the Nobel ceremony last year.

I don't know-. This time I kind of like it.
Though it still is definitely one of her worst.
I still don't like the ruffles, and the glitter on the top.
The Dutch ladies look much better.

When I was about to click on the links, I thought I would be viewing an awful, 'what was she thinking' dress, although that's not what I saw. I actually like this dress, my only complaint would be that the ruffles aren't really my cup of tea.

I agree about the ruffles. She doesn't look as elegant as she always seems to look. Maybe her hair? She also seems tired..

I do not know why, but I kinda like it. Look good on Queen Silvia and express her divine silhouette

The ruffles kind of make it look like crepe paper.

The arrival coat looks like it is padded! Just awful. Love her red gown, accentuates her fabulous aged 70! figure!
Grey suit for museum, just perfect.
She does looks tired to me too.

Queen Silvia's Fashion and Style Part 4: April 2013 -

Silvia's dress for the Belgian introductory visit appeared new. It did however remind me of her purple dress.
