Compare the same diademe on this picture.
This is not Barbie.

But of course, everyone likes or dislikes it on his/her own way. I do not meant it negatively.
I know you didn't mean it negatively. I guess what makes the first picture look strange is maybe her hair? It seems more blonde than in the second picture and also in the first one it is down. And I know how you feel about hair Henri.

Wrong way

She looks like Paris Hilton 2 wears that pink dress.
Really why need to keep way of #2’s if you was born be #1.
Next she can do, like Britney Spears, cut her beautiful hair and that way took a lot of attention.

Yes the hairdo in Oslo ruïned the whole appearance.
I thought the second picture with the hairdo up, and for the rest exactly the same jewels resulted in a most poised and elegant and sophisticated appearance.

Madeleine's appearance in Oslo was everything except sophisticated.

She looked VERY sophisticated in that dark blue dress the night of the ball. It fit her well, her hair was gorgeous and the tiara was lovely. Sophistication does not equal "hair up". You can wear your hair down neatly and look just as good as someone who has it piled on top of their head. Or is there some rule that says royals can only be sophisticated if they don't wear their hair loose. And can you tell me what's wrong with lipgloss? As a woman, this interests me greatly. Is wearing lipgloss the sign of some negative character trait or something? Are princesses not allowed to wear lip gloss?

In favor of Madeleine I will say she is young, hot and snexxy (princess by deffinition are not usually hot and snexyy lol), remember she is only 23, that is a decade younger of many other princesses; so her looks should be young, make up hair and all. I think she has a lot of sense of style, unlike her sister, who looks like a secretarian mosst of the times and we rarely see her beautiful hair

I think we would have to be severe on her if she, in look for elegancy end up looking like her mother, if you didnt like the hair fine well she cant win them all


And to henri M, more than Barbie it made me think of her as Miss Sweden :P, but she looked really beautiful

I agree, she's only 3 days younger than I am. People are coming down on her, IMO, far too severely. She looked great the night of the concert, but she would have looked even better if the dress was longer. She looked downright dreamy the night of the ball. And I'm still confused about what the problem with lipgloss is. She wasn't wearing fire-engine red or some outrageous color...it looked like a pinky-nude color. Is that not appropriate or something?

We are still discussing the pink dress and style? My first association was this lady
http://img181.imageshack.us/img181/8880/mispigbl6.jpg
Sorry folks...bash my brain for it
She is not 23, but 24 and will turn 25 this year. And as someone, who is self out of the year 1982, I think it´s slowly time to dress a bit down. But that should be of course up to everyone. And some women never do it (auntie Birgitta for example)

Well, at least women like Madeleine and Mabel give us and the tabloids an entertaining time
One should though note, that Madeleine and Mabel are in the Royal ranking quite different. Mabel´s husband is even not a member of the Dutch Royal House...while Madeleine is third in line to the Swedish throne and seems to aim a life in the cosy nest of taxpayer´s Disneyland

Funny picture Lena. I agree Madeleine needs to dress down a bit. For the most part, her gowns are beautiful, she just needs not to show so much cleavage at times. As for lipgloss, I like it and wear it myself. It helps to prevent chapped lips, among other things.

When you have an interview about your application for a serious job in a serious company, I would recommend ladies not to wear lipgloss. But the same counts for make-up and lipstick in general.

A fresh, clean and healthy looking face without a layer of pancake, lipgloss and blusher is appreciated in most companies. What is seen as 'decent' in serious companies, should also apply on serious public figures, I would think. The trick is to use foundation or whatever in such a manner that another person hardly can see you have used foundation.

Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway is a timeless beauty. She uses make-up as well but in a most natural way. She is giving the right example.

Hm, maybe it´s for this little OT discussion important to know, where one is coming from. Here in middle Europe lip gloss is something for kids and teenagers. It was more popular in the late 90ties, but also more for younger women.
And here I´d indeed agree with HenriM...don´t apply to a new job with heavy Makeup. The emphasis is on "heavy", because most women wear Make-up...but also most wear it so, that it isn´t directly noticeable...and this is, what Make-up (IMHO!) should be. It should make you looking better, but not fake! And this is also, what most ppl feel attracted to. There are of course exceptions and some job descriptions even ask for heavy Make-up.

And to get back to Madeleine...I´ve a hard time to say, if Lipgloss is appropriate for her. I´ve noted, that this "Barbie style" seems quite spread in Sweden...esp. Stockholm. So maybe she is just representing her country. After all these pink and light blue dresses and peeling skin through tanning and her dark hair roots and heavy cake Make-up and plastic claws...ehm...nails, I´d wish, she would represent (IMO!) more stylish countries (like France) every now and then Where has the cute and natural 15 and 16 year old Madeleine gone

She's a 24 year old woman now, she can't look like she's 15. And her nails aren't plastic. I'm sure she has them professionally done, and she probably takes care of them, so they are her real nails. A French manicure, which she seems to favor, doesn't mean her nails are fake.


In the States, lip gloss is worn by teenagers, young adults, mature women....my mom wears lip gloss, and she looks good. As for make-up during a job interview.....I don't care how serious the company is, if the person you're interviewing with is more transfixed on your lip gloss and not on your credentials and interview ability....you don't need the job. Most women, in fact I'd say ALL women who interview for a job are smart enough to look appropriately, including makeup. To say that if it's a "serious" job you shouldn't wear any, is silly.

I don´t care, if they are plastic or real...they look fake and for my taste they are way too long. And that one is 24 doesn´t mean, that one can´t look natural anymore. It´s even so, that many women go back to the natural style at this age.

I totally agree with you!!!!! wearing makeup does not bring down your chances of being successful,in fact, it helps you be more successful in my opinion and just like you said credentials are whats important not necessarily how you look. As far as fresh faced as someone mentioned earlier, are you kidding? lip gloss does not make you look younger but a fresh face certainly does especially in a professional environment. As far as Madeliene is concerned I do not see how she overdoes her makeup. She looks great and I never knew that it was a " bad thing" to look like a barbie. I admire Madeleine because she knews when to dress all the way and when to tone it down. The girl has got beauty and style!!! which not too many people have. I do not care that people are trying to make her look fake and overdone that is just jealousy in my opinion, she is a very classy and elegant woman.

I'm sorry to say that I could not disagree more, but hey... what the heck?
Live and let live. If Madeleine feels comfortable in a babydoll and with lipgloss, so be it.

I agree. Most women wear make up when applying for a job. I know I do. The whole point of make up is to hide the things you're not happy about and make the things you feel proud of, stand out. I feel more secure that way. And it's not that Madeleine wears make up every single day, so I don't see what you are all complaining about. Het make up was fresh and not over the top, so....

Does anyone have pics of her hands (nails) cause that's something I haven't paid attention to :p

You can see she has a French manicure, which she favors a lot.

Ugh. I have to agree, her nails are horrible.
I don't think her make-up is so much the problem, more her extreme tan.
