You know what's funny? She's owns this dress in two colors, and has worn both to rather high profile gala events. It's the exact same dress, which, in my post, was worn to a Hans Christian Anderson gala in the recent years (I think from after she and Joachim separated). The only difference is that the background color is black, and the bottom hemline is different too. The pattern, down to the color of the lilies, is exactly the same. She's even wearing the exact same hairstyle in both pictures!!!!!

Posts on this thread need to immediately change.

Until now, this thread has been a list of photos and links to photos that are posted in several other places on this board. Since the Royal Forums is not a photo hosting site but a discussion board, it is very important that this topic include discussion and not just photo links.

From now on, discussion about this topic will be required to keep this thread open.
Photos here are often posted several other places on this board- please consider linking to those places so all members can have some context about when that particular fashion was worn (where, when, why and who!). Understandably, photos are often needed to support discussion but we trust that all members here are very familiar with the more appropriate mix of photos, dicussion and news that is balanced almost everywhere else across the forum.

If this thread does not immediately change from a list of repeated photos to an active discussion, we will have to close it because it is of little value to the forum and is simply using up bandwidth.

So let's all start talking to each other!!
Why do you like royals in red?
Are there occasions when this wearing this colour was symbolic?
Maybe when it seemed completely out of place?
Who wears this colour the most strikingly?
Are there eras in time when this colour was more popular?
What style of clothing to you think looks best in this colour?
Are there colours that are OK for younger princesses, but not for more mature Queens?

Let the discussion begin!
Please refer to The Royal Forums Rules & Guidelines

Red has more personal associations than any other color. Recognized as a stimulant red is inherently exciting and the amount of red is directly related to the level of energy perceived. Red
draws attention and a keen use of red as an accent can immediately focus attention on a particular element.
It symbolizes heat and fires, danger, that's colour of blood and for the centuries it was a royal colour.

I think that almost all of our royal ladies looks good in red. But, it all depend of that of what red is it, I mean - tint. If one lady (never mind is she old or young) will wear red it doesn't mean that she will be looking good on it. But the other one can look great on it.

I like when Maxima (posted by maxima88) and Letizia (dress on Fred&Mary's wedding) wearing red. But I don't like her engagemnt red dress. Maybe it depend of the photos too - light and all that? They looks good in it. I like few of Victoria's red:
2005 National Day / Enthronement ceremonies (#339).
I like when Elizxabeth II wear red. HM looks so royal in that

Princess Alexandra of Denmark wearing red
on 15-12-2006 when she and Prince Joachim gave out grants from their fond at Amalienborg Castle in Copenhagen, once again the red colour fits very well with her dark hair and in this case it's a strong and impressive colour showing: I may no longer be an official part of the family, but I'm still here!

Red and ramifications

Red became acceptable to wear first again publicly by none other than Paloma Picasso in the early seventies. It was like she legalized her brunette hair ,red lipstick and red attire.
With regard to the royals red did look naturally lovely on Princess Diana; it looks equally amazing on Princess Victoria and Princess Madeleine of Sweden. It is a difficult colour to wear easily.The Queen Of Sweden,Sylvia contrarily to her daughters does not look good in red either.
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth has taken to wearing it lately and I feel it overpowers her.Earth tones in dress suit her better. I do not recall Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth ever wearing red when Norman Hartnell designed for her.Royals with finely chiselled features are overpowered by this colour unless it is a shade of burgundy.Bright red has the ramifications that one looks washed out.The colour effaces the wearer.I think accesories in this colour are more effective than the colour in a suit or gown itself.

Red does not look good on many people & then you have the different shades. I like it on Letizia, Maxima & Mathilde.
could red be worn to any event, or should it be something abit formal ?

I Think that red looks really good on both Silvia and Victoria, esp Silvia who can wear almost any colour and look great. Madeleine though only looks good in red in eveningdresses i think, not so much in daytime suits.
