I don't like the dress, it looks really cheap for a black-tie event. The middle parting hairdo doesnt do Sofia any favours, her forehead looks huge. All in all not very flattering.

I love this look! It's a great variation on an overlay, which has been done so much, but this draping is really interesting. The effect at the neckline looks really architectural and interesting.

I really love this look- it's my favorite since she got engaged. Well done.

I really don't like all the Sofia-bashing... but when I look at this, I have to say she has totally no feeling of how to dress princess-like

I think it looks alright I don't think it is THAT bad but I understand when you really cannot stand someone nothing they do is even half right, I like this Grecian style on her. She is not all that attractive really but she does no real harm here.. IMO

Do tell what your definition of a princess dress is, because if that's a ball gown and lot's of diamonds, I will gladly see her dress un-princess like for the rest of her life.

I don't hate the gown, don't love it. Doesn't really do much but it is one of her better dresses so far, design wise.

I love the look! I think the a-symmetrical contrasting draped overlay makes an interesting and welcome change from the black-over-white/cream overlay dresses we've seen lots of recently. I like the clean lines and lack of lace. I want to see the back, to see whether or not she's covered the tattoo. I'm hoping she hasn't, because I like it and I think it would be good to get it out there so everyone gets used to it.

Sofia has a lovely face and very good posture which helps. I don't think the centre part suits her, and I'd like to see a stylist make changes to her hair. She wears it very flat against her head, which could be simply because she has fine, straight, hair, which I do, too, and back-coming such fine hair to give it body wrecks it very quickly. We'll see.

Different strokes for different folks, I guess because I think the dress is fine but I don't like the severe center part of her hairstyle.

The dress would have been looked much better if the sheer black overlay would have covered the entire dress.

The dress is from BCBG Max Azria.

Love the dress! The colours are classic but the style is contemporary and adds an edge to the gown.

Just a reminder that this is not the thread to discuss Sofia's past. This is for her fashion, nothing more. As such, a handful of posts have been removed as they are off-topic.

Head over to the Swedish forum to discuss anything else relating to Sofia.

Further posts that do not discuss the topic of this thread - fashion - will be removed.

Back view, the dress looks even worse from the back than from the front.

Like her hair from the back, though.

I found the gown quite intriguing with it's nod to classical grecian design and she wore it very well (how many times can I go "Wow, does she know how to hold herself or what"!) . . . but oh dear, having looked at the back view, I really thing she needs to wear a strapless bra. And if it is part of the gown . . . forget it!

That being said, I love her hair and her earrings. They were both quite chic.

Sofia looks every inch of a true princess-to-be. Great dress, hair and make-up too.

I don't mind the back, though it's made me notice the straps. Surely they're not bra straps; they must be part of the dress. I'm going to assume the dress is not a "formed" one and needs the straps to hold up the dress.

I'm glad to see she's revealing her tattoo.

Love the back view of her hairdo. She seems to have fine hair and it seems shiny and healthy. I just wish she'd rethink the centre parting.

The dress isn't that bad and she wears it well. I have to say that her hair style is perfection (Kate, please take note!). Sadly, I don't like the tattoo that is visible at the base of her back neck. I wish she will have that removed before the wedding (...)
:(
