It seems to me this outfit of infanta Elena has its own place in the topic.

Victoria has done her share of terrible outfits but has drastically improved in the past couple years. But I wonder why Victoria makes such huge jumps when it comes to her outfits? The ones I'm posting all came from the past two years.

Casual Official Outfits:

THE AWFUL (ImagineScandinavia): http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...9&d=1114011800
^the awful trio: over-recycled velvet jacket, glasses, and the ponytail

THE GOOD (Face to Face, originally posted by purple_platinum): http://img21.imagevenue.com/img.php?...=41385_v10.jpg
^hair down, no glasses, and a chic outfit. I love the boots!

GALA OUTFITS:

THE AWFUL (Polfoto):

^Two words: Frog Dress, need I say more?

THE GOOD (UK Press): http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...1&d=1147525072
^gorgeous pink color, hair down, no glasses, and beautiful jewelry

I think CP Victoria looked gorgeous in that pink gown you posted. She should wear that color more often. I thought the purple outfit was ok, and would have been in style a few or five years ago. The only thing I really didn't like about the "frog dress" was the tiara she was wearing with it- come on, she's a CP, they can get her a new tiara!!! Oh well.
And that outfit on la Infanta Elena?
AAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My eyes! My eyes!

Then again, that is what I normally say when I look at Laurentien's get-ups...

Cool

I love this thread! When I saw Claire in that pantsuit I thought "I have a pair of pajamas with that print." I like Princess Laurentien, but her wardrobe is always a treat as to how far out she has gone. The gown at Frederik's and Mary's wedding was a Yikes! What was Elena thinking?

I think this outfit is just awful!!! Madeleine's fashion-sense has improved so much from this! We'll blame this one on the awkward teen phase.

Please tell me she was wearing one of her father's jackets, please!
This is the definition of incredibly-awful-outfit

Well, I don't think this dress of Queen Sonja is terrible or awfull, but anyway it seems to be a fashion mistake!
Maybe it's just me, but I think it doesn't fit to an older (still beautiful) woman like her! The neck seems to be a bit too big.. Don't know.
...it just doesn't look good on her!

Her Majesty usually looks divine. Let's hope this was a oncer!

Even though that's too much skin from Queen Sonja to show off, I have to say she does have the courage to show a sexy side of her I did not know she had. The dress, the hairstyle and the necklace gives her an aura of glamour we never see in royals. It also shows how confident she is about herself and her age. If the picture was from an official event I'm sure her King was very amused to be seated next to such stylish, sophisticated and beautiful mature lady.

At first glance, I thought the dressmaker forgot to do any fittings.

Well, it seems she made this "mistake" another time:

Fotomarktplatz

She's a beautiful woman , but I think she should stop wearing holder-less tops / dresses . Anyway she seems to be very brave and very self-confident still to show as much skin as she does.

I disagree that at a certain age women should stop wearing strapless dresses or off the shoulder dresses. Why? Because their skin there may be more wrinkled than the skin of their much younger daughters or daughter-in-laws? Would you want someone to come to you on your 50th birthday and say, "No more strapless gowns for you or gowns or any other item of clothing that bares too much skin."

I think Sonja looks very nice in this strapless red dress worn during the U.S. visit. There is nothing revealing or inappropriate about it. We are not exposed to anything private, certainly not anything that some cap sleeves would've covered up more. She also wore it at a reception with Amercian politicians and other business people. Had she worn this outfit to a mosque or something it would be inappropriate on a different level.

I think Sonja, like Silvia and Sofia look amazing for their ages and if they feel comfortable wearing strapless gowns (wich Sonja and Silvia do while Sofia does not), then why shouldn't they wear such gowns? We should applaud them for wearing such gowns or Silvia for still wearing bikinis.

Well, I didn't mean that woman should stop wearing strapless gowns since a special age.
I just think that Sonja looks much better with straped tops...
I don't like the cut of the red gown (the 2nd one). The skin under it looks a bit squashed (because of the cut)...
The first dress looks much better on her! You can see that she still has a very beautiful skin she can show it if she wants.
I just don't like the cut of the dresses in general.
I think I wouldn't like them on younger Royals either.
But in general I agree with you, Alexandria.

Some woman in her age looks good in that kind of strapless gown and some other do not. I think it is not because of the gown style itself but more about the one who wearing it, I don't think Queen Sonya looks good in that pink strapless gown, well just my opinion.

What did Marie Chantal think about her attire..she wore a light summer/spring dress with that "heavy snowing winter" hat http://s2.supload.com/image.php?get=...0605163134.jpg Posted by Elsa. M

Oh man! This hat looks awful! The dress itself looks good, but the combination with this hat is terrible!
