No baptism and Luana isn't baptised in any particular faith, which is very odd as I wonder why they baptise her at all?

I think it is just a weird business, but that can be my odd perception of the matter...

I want to see pictures! Such a shame!

How does one get baptised if there is no faith associated with it? Or is it a non denominational service in which it wouldn't officially be a baptism but is called such because it would be easier to explain?

Is Mabel of the Protestant faith too? Or is she of another faith that would make it difficult for them to choose what to baptise their daughter if Mabel and Johan-Friso are of different faiths?

So nice to see new photos of Luana.

Was the christening gown designed by Viktor and Rolf? I was wondering because of the bows.

What a cutie! I love the way she's holding on to her mom and looking right at the camera. And I love Mabel's outfit. I'm so happy they released a picture.

I think it is a victor and rolf christening gown! (and I'd meant that as a joke when i said it earlier)its definitely not the same one amalia and alexia wore.

mabel's outfit is actually rather nice. so restrained I'm impressed. I like the peter pan collar. and she looks great with her hair down.
but those shoes!!! ug.

and also can't Friso manage to look a little happy for his daughter's baptism.
he stands there so awkwardly if i just saw this photo and didnt know any better i'd think he wasnt the father. (maybe a bachelor uncle or something)

the baby has a very cute face, eyes of her father I think.
Do not care for what seems to be grey ribbons in the material for the baby,
too avant garde.
Friso's looks in this picture like if he is not too bright a button.

Yay! Finally we got a picture! Luana is sooooo cute! She looks like a little adorable lady! Mabel looks very nice too, except for the shoes. :) And it wouldn't hurt Friso to smile a bit, but well, that's just him. I hope they are a really happy little family, the three of them.

But those bows on the gown! It's becoming a little bit ridiculous, this obsession with bows... I'm sure Viktor & Rolf are very talented designers who can also sell clothes to Mabel without bows on it... I suggest they give it a try!

i agree... Mabel is definitely bow princess...

little Luana looks like she's wearing mini version of Mabel's wedding dress...
she still looks extra-cute, though..
