I agree about the coat, it was a virtual white-out and completely washed her out.

I miss her "lighter" touch, softer hair around her face and colour!

Interestingly, the worst anyone can say about the coat/dress combo is that it's quite dowdy. Overly conservative in my opinion...


But I bet if she'd worn a dress/coat the length of Princess Madeline's, if would have been criticized as too short. Perhaps "nun like" is the best she can do right now to avoid being labelled in a negative way.

I think she looked fine... I agree that the lengh over down the knees was a bit too much... Simple knee lenght woud have been the right one.

She looked fine, she is a brunette and white colour suits her very well.

IMO these few missing cm are not so important. What counts is that Sofia has improved her style and she "fits in" while standing in public with her future family.

She would have been skewered if her dress were as short as maddies.

Yes, just like several posters are pointing out in Maddie's fashion thread that her coat is too short. Sofia looked nice outfit wise but I didn't like the length of her dress. She needs to improve her hair too. The SRF women are experts when it comes to elegant hairstyles.

I thought her hair was wonderful when she became engaged. Now it is invariably slicked back and boring. Same thing happened to Daniel when he became engaged . . . . and it hasn't improved much since!

Sofia's dress was too long and Madeleine's too short. The coat is nice. Next!

Oh I hope she is not going to wear 'High Street' clothes, it just leads to photos having a running money total beside them. Do we really need another 'discount duchess'?

I think the dress looks lovely on Sofia. Reiss does not have shops in Sweden.

I think a combination of High Street and couture is great for a working member of a royal family. Unfortunately, IMO, the Duchess of Cambridge is increasingly only seen in couture now.

Would someone please explain what "High street" clothes are and why they are wrong for a member of a royal family.

I always assumed it was stuff like you could get a niceish store in the Mall? Not haute couture or designer but not Wal-mart either. The impression of a Royal Princess trolling a mall and picking out ready made of the rack sounds shabby and definitely not Royal to many people I guess.

This is what I thought they meant by High street. I am probably wrong.

If any royal only wore couture they would be called money wasters. I think they have to mix it up to not seem out of touch with their citizens. I think they all shop high street Mary and Victoria both wear H&M. As for prices being listed it is not hard to find out the price of any outfit Unless it is especially made

Thanks, that's what I was thought, too.

I think if the younger royals are the right shape to be able to look good in "High street" clothes, they should wear them for their day to day activities. It shows they're not wasting money and that they don't think they are too good to be wearing such clothes. I think the only thing they should be careful with is to make sure they mainly patronise shops that supply locally designed and produced clothes.

Looking at the latest picture of the week entries, I think a lot of younger royals are buying at "High street" shops.
