The silver suit is interesting. It has the potential to go so wrong, but in actual fact it doesn't, and it does have good potential for recycling.

That dress.... it must be the world record holder in the category "Most recycled dress ever".

World Record Holder - Congrats.

This dress is unusual choice of Queen Sonja. She look like a sun. I would say "A sunny Queen".

I really don't want to see that dress anymore. Never again! Everytime she wears that dress I think to myself: "This has to be the last time we see that dress. She's going to retire it now."
And then, like 2 gala events later, the yellow thing appears again.

Why doesn't Sonja recycle this stunning red dress (jamd) she wore for Fred's & Mary's wedding? This is a beautiful gown and she only wore it once. On the other hand she wears that ugly yellow thing again and again. Maybe the bright yellow colour had quite a "wow"-effect the first 2 times she wore it... but now it's just ... old and ugly.
My least favourite dress ever... combined with the most ugly Tiara in the Norwegian collection. She made Norwegian Royal watchers cry ().

I actually LOVED this dress the first time I saw it (which coincidentally was the time she wore it with flowers in her hair, not some tiara from out of space).
The 2nd time I liked it, 3rd fine.
But now its time it was retired!!!

I like the yellow dress too, but it has been worn too much. The tiara reminds me of something from Star Wars. I would prefer to see her in another tiara that is more traditional.

WHY does she like that dress so much? I really don't understand this. I think it's sort of cool with the yellow flower in her hair, worn ONCE or TWICE to a summer event but this is completely out of control. And it does look far better when it's worn with the flower instead of a tiara.

Instead of recycling the yellow dress to dead Sonja could wear one of the galadresses she only wore once so far:

Galadress worn for Harald's 70th Birthday - it's such a gorgeous gown...it has never been recycled so far

Yellow Galadress worn for Spanish SV - I don't really like it... but it's still better then the yellow dress.. and has also never ever been recycled so far

Gorgeous red Couture dress - why on earth doesn't she recycle it? WHY? It's a gorgeous dress!


She also never recycled the dress she wore for her own birthday (although it's not a good Tiara-gala-dress... it would still look lovely for non-Tiara gala events ).
One of my favourite gala dresses worn by the Queen is this yellow galagown.
I guess it doesn't fit anymore (it's 10 years ago since she last wore it )... anyway; this was a great style on her!

Furthermore it would be great to see HM recycling one of the following suits:
Raspberry-colored suit - I love the colour!
Cyan suit - great cut, great colour (crazy hat )

You're so right! Why doesn't she recycle something pretty?

This suit from her Egypt trip has always been one of my favorites. I think it's especially cute in the full length picture because of the round-toed flat shoes - so cute!

Each Queen Sonja's outfits are great, it doesn't matter if it's a day time or an evening dress. The main thing is that she isn't afraid to change.

I really like the shade of yellow on her (much better then the bright yellow of her infamous galadress ). All in all it was a very lovely outfit choice. Nice and summery colours.

I love fashion from the 1960s. I've always felt like that era produced some great styles. I loved the brown dress, the gala dress, and all of her pillbox hats. She was quite stylish back in the day.

She had a great a style back in 60's. I like all of the shown outfits. The last one, the light pink suit with belt was very Jackie O of her. Very elegant. Love it.

Her hat kind of looks like a cowboy (or cowgirl) hat.

It does a bit doesn't it?! The colour (of the coat) is ok, but I think it would be nicer if there was a lighter colour, white or cream maybe, to contrast with it.

Well, I can say I really like her coat, both the colour and a style of the coat.
