I don't think Mathilde looked great...she wears strong colors that do not suit her IMO.

Love Mary in the pink dress. Victoria, Marie and Madeleine looked beautiful at the dinner.
Stephanie is wearing silver lace over grey or bronze lining.

Highly dissapointed in Cp Mary outfits. Princess Victoria lovely but seems to be hiding something, I Hope.
Madeline, the star of the evening.

As a woman, I try to be fair to about other women's beauty. I think HRH Princess Madeleine of Sweden would have to really hard try to look bad - she is a truly natural, always-radiant beauty. She does remind me of a younger Grace Kelly, aka HSH Princess Grace of Monaco.


HRH Prince Carl Philip of Sweden appears of a short stature in a few pix of him taken today. Is HRH really shorter than his younger sister, HRH Princess Madeleine of Sweden, and many of the princesses of European royal houses/families, or did stylish high heels of today make him seem shorter than he is? Anyone know how tall he is? Although very handsome, he seemed to fade into the background of the festivities in Monaco yesterday.

Carl Philip is 179 cm, Daniel 180 cm, Victoria 168 cm and Madeleine 170 cm.
Carl Philip´s trousers looked odd in the evening:

A former German swimmer Franziska van Almsick looked very beautiful:

Naomi Campbell in the evening. Very tacky. She was even worse than Madeleine.

Beatrice was stunning imo. Tatiana was such a disappointment though, I hoped she'll dress way better...
Completely agree with this.

Pierre's girlfriend, Countess Beatrice Borromeo, looked very very chic at the wedding ceremony. Tatiana Santo Domingo, not so much...She looked a bit messy actually.

Thanx for the info on HRH Prince Carl Philip of Sweden's height. I have only been acquainted with metric system at a distance. But I have enough sense to know that at 179 cm, HRH CP is 9 cm taller than younger sister, HRH Princess Madeleine of Sweden, who stands at 170 cm.

Fashion wise IMO was quite disappointing. MM was far the best dressed and best overall. The rest of royals either tried to hard and got the look wrong like Mary's hat and others went elegent but tried to keep it simple with a simple hat like Caroline of Monaco. Victoria's outfit was pretty but hair was messy, something you would expect from Maxima. Stephanie's dress was a bit too girl but loved her daughter Pailina's dress.

Everybody looked stunning and fashion-wise, saw very little mistakes. Charlotte's church outfit was rather pretty to me. I didn't really like the top because it emphazises the fact that she's got broad, thin shoulders with little breast but she still looked gorgeous. Her evening outfit was a hit aswell.
Beatrice Borromeo' outfits were just amazing. What a fine dresser she is. Tatiana looked too much like a hippie, per usual.

Caroline and Stephanie looked great aswell. Credit to Pauline for making that hideous Chanel blue sweater dress look great. First time someone has done that. And Camille looked very pretty.
Love Madeleine's hair color, it looks fantastic on her.

But the top credit goes to Charlene who was just stunning on both her days.

Having seen this link, no one can say that the royals did not turn up in droves !!

A good omen for the future - or the last of the royals ?

church ceremony:

maxima: i just love this. i think the colour and the fitting is just perfect.
mette marit: nice hairpiece, but the dress is very typical, nothing special.
madeleine: i very much liked the beige dress she chose. very feminine although maybe a bit overdone with the hairdo.
victoria: okay but... the hair ruined it. such a shame.
mathilde: lovely hairpiece, but the dress looks like what someone older would wear.
mary: i love the colour combination.
marie, claire: rather boring.
lalla soukaina: i just loved seeing her. whatever she was wearing, it was an ocassion to see how much she had changed from the last ocassions when she was pictured! what a change. she's not recognisable!
maria margarita: wow. she looked great! the dress definitely did suit her.
maria teresa: definitely not the type of dress for her.
clotilde looked lovely. fierce dress!


while i was a bit disappointed at the earlier events, i think the most ladies looked stunning at the gala dinner after the church ceremony. it's also nice to see all the guests arrived not with their couples but with someone else...

gala dinner:

charlene: so pretty and simple.
caroline wore a lovely dress, great colour but i don't think her arms are the best asset, i think something a bit longer on the sleeves would have done her good. amazing jewel match though.
charlotte: i loved this. i love the cape and love how the dress flows. a big yes for me.
beatrice borromeo: she was flawless at any of the events. just perfection. i loved her day outfit also.
tatiana: much better in the gala dinner than during the church event.
mary: great colour and perfect fit.
marie: i'm not so fond of the upper part, but isn't the skirt a dream?
victoria: lovely. nice stonework in the dress.
mette marit: okay, but nothing special.
clotilde: gorgeous dress. not so fond of the hairdo.
margarita: pure perfection. i wish the make up would have been different.
maxima: i adore. the fabric is amazing. it looks very valentino to me?
claire: nice!


by the way, any pictures of lalla soukaina at the gala event?

I was so happy to see Princess Siriwanwaree of Thailand there -- she is such an exquisite beauty! My other favorites were Princess Mary of Denmark, Princess Michael of Kent (what a style goddess!) and -- a pleasant, big surprise -- Charlene's mom. All of them so chic!

I like the pink dress Charlotte wore to the wedding. At first, like almost always with Charlotte's choices, I go, errrr...she could have done better! But then like always, it grows on me until I get to really like it. Very edgy choice and then a safer one for dinner. Her makeup and headpiece at the wedding were to die for though.

Alexandra's such a sweetheart! I've always said she was going to turn out to be a beauty. I totally approve that she wore flats to the wedding...I just never really like seeing kids wear heels.

Pauling and Camille looked perfect as well. I think Pauline looks better with her hair down though as that softens her features better.

Anyone else notice how the royal guests always, always smile perfectly and look good at all angles? They project themselves really well and it shows that they're the ones with the most experience in these kinds of things.

I never realized this (I've seen so few pictures of them) but all of the Casiraghi children have protruding ears. Is that inherited from Caroline or from Stefano? Or does it just look that way in this photo? Monaco royal wedding: Is this the world's biggest wedding cake?
