The gold part says 3 as well. I saved it and then rotated the photo and then zoomed in on it.

Interesting dress... I´m not sure I like it :P
It looks like a "cleaning dress" imo

Yes, I would have to agree. I'm checking out the list. Some of the names I don't recognize. Ylva appears to be with the government. Nalin deals with immigration issues. There's Robyn. A singer who once was a favorite of my favorite. Couldn't figure out Christina totally. I got that she's now on her board of her father's company.(Pappas, I had to look it up. Trust the instinct). And that her stock is on the rise and that she is goal-oriented and cocky. Well, I know Annika. I've met her. Apparently, Carola has saved the new generation with her singing. Odd. Asne is a war correspondent. Krig. Another non-Swedish word origin. Maud did something. I'm going through the words. A lot of little words that don't tell me anything. Then I see skitsnack. Not a good word. O, well. I give up with her something about Goran. He forgot something. Apparently, she is also cocky. Got it. EMU. European monetary union. Stop him. Odd that it's the same abbreviation. Anitra Steen. I know her. So does Goran. Margareta works with medical policy and working on föräldraledighet. There's a word. And Gudrun is in the parliament. Who did I forget? Madde.

"Medan Victoria tyngs av plikter och blir vintrigt gråblek som vi andra kommer Madde hem från solandet och partajandet på Franska Rivieran,'

Apparently, this makes her more admirable. Victoria is being weigh down by duty and I didn't get the second part. So Madde goes partying in the French Riviera.
I love the headline. Family's youngest takes care of herself for the most part. I love how the word "minsting" is translated. I would have to wholeheartedly disagree.


Victoria Svensson would have to get my vote. Hate to do it in protest. She's sweet and great to watch on the field. So is Ljungberg and the rest of the great team. Great memories. Yeah, that reminds me. What about Anja Pärson? She did great this past year. I know. It's not just about sport. I suppose they couldn't put in Anna Lindh because that would be largely a sympathy vote. Not that people didn't love her when she was alive. It would be an unfair poll. Good grief. Must learn to scroll down entire pages before responding.

This is such a populist paper. I mean the readers must gobble up the stuff on Madde too. Like it was said before, the editors and the readership largely agree on Madde. But take a look at the poll. It's clearly a race between the athletes, Madde and the TV journalist. Interesting.

The list isnt really based on who has done "most" during the year. Its just a question of popularity and then Madde wins :P
Its nothing serious really... its just a list "for fun"

Carolina Klüft appears to be the winner. Dare I say, she is running away with the lead in first?

Who is Carolina Kluft? I don't follow track. But she seems to be popular.

She is a heptathlete. In 2002, she won the World Junior championship as well as winning a gold at the European Championships. She won another gold at the 2003 World Championships this past summer. She is the 3rd woman to reach 7,000 points in her career. She is 20 years old.

From expressen.se

Nästa vecka blir rena öknen för Victoria

Biträdande finansminister Gunnar Lund får celebert sällskap på sin tripp till Saudiarabien den 16 januari - nämligen kronprinsessan Victoria.

En stor näringslivsdelegation åker först till huvudstaden Riyadh för att samtala med kronprins Abdullah och företrädare för den saudiska regeringen.
Därefter blir det Jedda och Jeddah economic forum, där Gunnar Lund håller ett tal om den svenska välfärdsmodellen. Även Bill Clinton och jordanska drottning Rania kommer att ta sig en tur förbi podiet.
- Det blir även lite grann ett svarsbesök, efter att kronprins Abdullah var i Stockholm för två år sedan, säger hovets informationschef Elisabeth Tarras-Wahlberg.
Huruvida det blir huvudduk eller inte för kronprinsessan står dock skrivet i stjärnorna.
- Hon kommer att anpassa sin klädsel efter deras normer, det är klart att man i muslimska länder har kläder som täcker mer av kroppen, kommenterar Tarras-Wahlberg.


Victoria will meet crown prince Abdullah, when she´s going to Saudi Arabia next week...and she will adjust her clothes/dresses to the islamic conventions.

Here's an idiotic article from today's Aftonbladet. I see no point in them publishing it. But I guess it's for public consumption. I'll post it here so that you all can complain about it as well:

Victoria och terrorister lockas av sagobröllop
Polisens mardröm när spanske kronprinsen gifter sig i maj
MALAGA.
För Spaniens kronprins Felipe är det livets lyckligaste ögonblick. För den spanska polisen är det rena mardrömmen.
Sveriges kronprinsessa Victoria är en av världens alla kungligheter som bjuds till kronprins Felipes bröllop med tv-journalisten Letizia Ortiz. Mellan 1 200 och 1 400 gäster kommer till bröllopet den 22 maj i Almudenakatedralen i Madrid. För terrorister är evenemanhet ett lockande mål.
Hoten består främst av terrorgruppen ETA som vill frigöra Baskien från Spanien och av al-Qaida som vill straffa Spanien för att landet stödde kriget i Irak.

Some of the things in English of what was said before:

" Minister for International Economic Affairs and Financial Markets Gunnar Lund is to head a large delegation representing the Swedish business community which is visiting Saudi Arabia on 17-19 January. The delegation will also include Crown Princess Victoria.

The delegation is to participate in the fifth Jeddah Economic Forum on 19 January, at which Gunnar Lund will speak on the Swedish welfare model. Other speakers will include former US President Bill Clinton, the Prime Minister of Turkey and Queen Rania of Jordan. In all, some 15 Swedish companies and business organisations have signed up for the trip.

Talks with Crown Prince Abdullah and representatives of the Saudi Government have been provisionally scheduled for 17-18 January in Riyadh.

“Saudi Arabia is Sweden’s largest trading partner in the Middle East, with Swedish exports worth close to SEK 6 billion”, says Gunnar Lund. “Many Swedish companies have long been active in the country and this visit is intended to promote their and other activities. I see very good chances of further trade expansion and of extending trade to new areas such as IT and environmental protection.

“This trip also serves to confirm the good relations between our two countries, as demonstrated most recently by the visit of Crown Prince Abdullah to Stockholm in May 2001. The Crown Prince is one of the people behind our visit”, says Gunnar Lund.

Swedish imports from Saudi Arabia consist mainly of crude oil, to a value fluctuating between SEK 2 billion and SEK 300 million per year."

Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden is seen in the audience during the second day of the Stockholm International Forum 2004 "Preventing Genocide" in Stockholm, Sweden, January 26, 2004. Representatives of some 60 governments have been invited to Stockholm by Prime Minister Goran Persson to discuss key issues of a humanitarian, political and moral nature relating to genocide.

I love Victoria's style but she needs to find a different way to wear her hair. She needs to look a little bit more put together. Perhaps a nice chignon or wearing her hair half up and half down would look cleaner than a ponytail.
Anyone have any other suggestions? :flower:

I doubt that she will change this ponytail-habit soon...and I´m sure she knows, that most people wish, that she would wear more different hair-styles...last spring she wore a great hair and make-up-style for a low-key-event/affair...and she got great feedback for that...the magazines wrote about it and the journalists even talked with the mentor of Victoria about her "new style"...but then she started again with the ponytails...I don´t know, what she´s thinking...maybe it´s just a matter of less time , or maybe there´s a little sparklet/droplet (I said little !!!, Dennis) of a punk in her...and she´s thinking that she doesn´t want to do all, what we want of her
