It is the first time I think she was really badly dressed. This dress is a disaster.

She looks huge in this dress

She is tall, thin, she has money, she could dressing up as a modell, but her taste in fashion is very individual. This dress is horrible, like a candy-floss... But I see other people in the gala, and others had also ugly dresses...

This dress seems to be Valentino. Eventhough I don't think is a very beautiful dress, it could look wonderful in a very thin women, like Mette-Marit's friend Rosario Nadal. It's not a dress to Mette-Marit's shape: she's tall but not thin at all

For me, Mette-Marit is a complete disappointment, she turned out the worst of all CPs. Ok, she and Haakon were always special, preferring humanitarian issues to "real work", no problem with that, if only MM would throw herself into such causes.

Instead, the only thing I see of her is wearing unflattering couture at jet-set events, to me she embraces the role of the easy going socialite at events she finds suitable for herself rather than serving a country. She seems to splash out the money on herself (fashion & beauty regimes) but what does she give in return? Twittering some pictures of herself & family about her whereabouts, like a celebrity?

She doesnt even co-ordinate her "events" with stuff she should be attending due to her functions, such as weddings or christenings.

Yes, I also have the feeling, that she makes only things, what makes her passion. What did she make in this year?? Nothing. I don't know what the Norwegians think about, but I would be a little bit angry, if she so "earn" my money (tax)...

I think it's good that she didn't cancel her engagement, the Young Global Leaders summit, which collides with Princess Estelle's christening. She has been accepted the invitation for this summit before the christening date was scheduled. For me it's right that she sticks with her original plan.

Your observations are accurate. Although MET Gala is one of the most important social events in New York, it is not the place for any reigning royals to make appearances. I was perplexed to see Queen Rania in a much better dress attending it.

i quite understand what Duke of Marmalade said, i mean, she isnt taking any searious duties in behalf of her country and sometimes she attends those ''celebrity-like'' events that dont have any profit.
i like MM, but i dont see her embrace in working hard for her royal life, like we see with her european counterparts crown princesses. even Lalla Salma and Princess Sarah of Brunei do a better work for their countries.

I don't think the real problem is her clothes, that's another story. I have to admit that I like Mette-Marit, but lately she is just pure dissapointment to me for the same reasons Duke of Marmalade stated. She is more or less invisible in Norway. Apparently she is afraid of flying and therefore does not accompany Haakon on engagements abroad, yet she travels to destinations that are out of reach for her private purposes. As for her not attending Estelle's christening, while it's nice that she sticks to her "original" plan, she attended a similar summit a month ago, missing one wouldn't hurt her IMO.

I have to agree with DOM. MM seems to have no trouble traveling from Norway to NYC yet can't travel to Sweden for the christening? She seems to be the most work shy of all the CP's.

I would guess that Mette-Marit had agreed to attend the meeting in Seattle before the Swedish court decided what day Estelle was going to be baptized. If MM had decided to break her previous appointment for a christening people would be complaining that she don't want to keep promised appointments if she gets an invitation to a more newsworthy royal event.

Well, we've been having very nice weather here in Europe. I don't know the weather-conditions in Norway, but a few hours in the backyard at Skaugum might have done the trick too.
