I like Q.Sonja's pearls but I don't care for this dress. It isn't ugly, it isn't beautiful either. JMO

For me it was awful, not pretty at all. But yes the pearls are great.

Wow, I agree with Melibea - awful outfit. Don't see anything I like about it!

I agree, the yellow is pretty bad - the way the top and skirt meet is so awkward and shapeless.

I believe this is the dress worn at Margrethe's birthday and I don't mind it.

The one she wore to Margrethe's party had a lot more ruffles, making her look like a wedding cake. It was similar to this one with, also yellow with lots of lace, so it's possible it was altered into this.

I have to agree with the previous opinions. I don't like the dress and I don't know what I dislike more - top part or skirt. Nevertheless lovely pearls.

Once again a strange choice.

I agree with all of you: not nice at all.
The Queen has lovely dresses she never recycled (this one, or this one). I hope for a nice one at today's wedding.

I wish the bottom of the dress and the shawl weren't in that style, if it had just been "straight" instead of folded like that it would have been beautiful.
The top part of the dress looks beautiful, and the colour suits her.

Wait.... the salmon-dress for Victoria's wedding??? I was hoping for a NEW dress. How old is that dress? 10 years?

Quite disappointing once again... I don't know, she simply can't get it right lately. The emeralds look stunning though.

The dress isn't my favourite, but she could have chosen a worse one (yellow... ). I am disappointed though that she recycled an old dress...
Here are some pictures:

I'm always hoping for a new one, too, but this is one of my favorites of her old ones. I like the color, the texture, and the cape. It's actually 18 years old (which I admit is sort of ridiculous) - she first wore it for Margrethe and Henrik's 25th anniversary in 1992!

Nice dress and color. The emeralds don't look right with the coral color.

I didn't like it. The color was too 'acrid' and overall the dress looked too old fashioned to me. Too bad - she's a really beautiful woman, but her fashion choices are rather odd.

Not my favorite of her dresses. I hate the sleeves.

It's much older. She wore it already at the Silver Wedding of Queen Margrethe II. and Prince Henrike in 1992. And i believe also to an State Visit to Sweden (or from Sweden to Norway) in the early 1990's.
