Although I will always adore Victoria no matter what she looks like, I don't like the stern look (hair pulled back, in combination with these glasses, clothes that sometimes look as it they're a bit too large) she's been having the past few weeks/months.


But as I said, a wonderfull crownprincess who makes her country happy and proud!

t4p the photos GrandDuchess!

I think her glasses looks to much like sunglasses in those photos. With the dark suit they are to much.
When I saw them irl they looked ok, but they dont look good in pictures, way to dark and you cant see her beautiful eyes at all

Did I read that someone thought that perhaps Madeleine was wearing a scarf around her neck at her father's birthday the other day because she might be trying to hide a love bite? Perhaps this is the case with Victoria now, too?!

Thank you very much for posting, GrandDuchess:)

Wow, with that style, Victoria could play the evil one in a lifetime movie
http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...hmentid=136566

Hm, why is she always dressed so dark and dull in Sweden?? (I guess today I beat my record of "nagging because of Victoria´s style")
I´ve thought Victoria is a right hander...I´m one, and I always have the fork in the right hand and cut with the knife in the left hand. How do you do?

I like those sunglasses. They look like movie star glasses.

http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...hmentid=136572
A Mafiosa perhaps? :) I feel like I should warn Melissa Gilbert or Tracey Gold or some other brave Lifetime heroine...I use that same method but mainly because my left hand is stronger. I am left-handed. Technically, it is an unusual third way. There are two standard styles. In the American style, one cuts the food by holding the knife in the right hand and the fork in the left hand with the fork tines piercing the food to secure it on the plate. Cut a few bite-size pieces of food, then lay your knife across the top edge of your plate. Then change your fork from your left to your right hand to eat, fork tines facing up while dropping your left hand to your lap. (If you are left-handed, keep your fork in your left hand, tines facing up.) The European or Continental style is the same as the American style in that you cut your meat by holding your knife in your right hand while securing your food with your fork in your left hand. The difference is your fork remains in your left hand, tines facing down, and the knife in your right hand. Simply eat the cut pieces of food by picking them up with your fork still in your left hand. Apparently, this idea goes back to the colonies. The English were among the last Europeans to use the fork.(Forks weren´t regularly used in Europe until the 1700s). Thus, the colonists did this strange switching method. The predominant theory pointing to the origin of the switching method of eating is that many Americans, in the absence of forks, and because knives had come to be designed with blunted ends, began to use their spoons to steady food. They would then switch the spoon to the right hand to scoop up the bite of food because they were accustomed to wielding eating utensils with their dominant hand and because the blunt tip of the knife made this cumbersome. Finding their non-dominant hand (usually the left hand) largely neglected when eating in this manner, American table manners came to adopt the habit of dropping the neglected hand into one’s lap which is still found in many kitchens and dining rooms across the US to this day.

More lessons on dining etiquette later...:)

I'm sorry. I didn't see this before. Thanks Larzen. Ha ha ha. :) My hatred of those shoes stems from my hatred of feet. Victoria must read articles in newspapers/magazines about herself, or at least she hears about them; why can't she then do something about it (in this case it's "the shoes")? I can see this will be like the pony-tail. *sad sigh*

I am not asking her to spend $500 on shoes; that is just ridiculous. But for all we know, those shoes could have cost that much - we just don't know. What I object to is the fact that she wears them all the time and that in my opinion, they are ugly. She has much better shoes that would suit outfits she has worn them with.

Well maybe she likes them and they are her first self choosen ones! Didn't she say she was not that much interested in style. Maybe mum or ETW chose her clothes in the past.

When this black&grey-style (+ white shoes) is that, what she chooses, then I even would want ETW as fashion advisor back. But of course I would prefer, that Victoria is (after Australia) again in the grip of this mysterious bad fashion advisor...then there would be a chance, that this drama (and when you look at the pics in this thread you will see, that it´s a drama) could find (after a phase of emancipation) an end.

I could only find a little thumbnail from Victoria´s visit to the graphic house in Mariefred. It´s from SCANPIX
GrandDuchess and me have bet, what she would wear. Unfortunately I couldn´t persuade her to vote for "colourful clothes". She said like me "dark"...so we have both "won". Is there anyone, who dares to bet with me for the premiere of the Pippi longstocking-ballet? I would say she will wear black/grey or beige.

Here are some pictures of Victoria in her extremly original black pantsuit, her elegant hairdo and delightful glasses.

Is there some label on her Australia and Japan clothes that says that they can only be worn abroad. She blends in with the men in her dark boxy suit and there is nothing feminine about the suit nor the hairdo. No matter how much I adore Victoria her clothes the last moths has been so extremely boooooring and it does hardly look like she spent two minutes on her look before heading out for royal duty....

I agree she has no fashion style.
but there something about her which make me say that she does not really need to have one.
She radiates kindness, intelligence and beauty (I do not say she is beautiful, but there's something beautiful about her). I think it's called charisma (something her sister does not have, which may explain why she spends so much time on her clothes)
