Alexandra's outfit isn't that bad. The cut of the dress doesn't suit her but everything else looks fine. Tessy's outfit isn't great though. I'm hoping to see better dresses on both ladies tonight.

Giving Tessy a second look, pregnancy would explain her outfit. Long jacket with a dress, belt around the waist is the oldest trick in the book.
I heartily agree about the posture and ability to wear heels.

i was watching the live coverage, and i didnt notice on Tessy that little belly because of the jacket.
or is the cut of dress with her posture or she is really pregnant, and i agree with the belt tricky thing, even Princess Marie was pregnant 4 months long and with a belt no one noticed until it was made official.

If Tessy is indeed pregnant (and I'm afraid the outfit does make it look as though she's expecting her third child), it makes total sense they haven't announced it so far: this is, after all, Guillaume and Stephanie's time. After the wedding though...

Tessy's outfit is OK but not particularly memorable.
Alexandra's is plain horrible; it must have taken the designer a lot of effort to turn an attractive young lady into a frumpy old matron.
Maria Teresa looked very nice in her gold ensemble for the civil wedding, but I have to agree with those who think it was too much for a daytime vent.

Queen Sonja at the gala.

Alexandra and Tessy at the civil ceremony.

Neither looks good IMO.

My favourite guest of the civil wedding is Maria Teresa.
I don't like Alexandra's dress, it looks ill fitted and makes her look fat.

From the pictures of the gala I've seen up till now, I'm going to pick Astrid as my favourite dress. Beautiful coulour and fabric, it suits her really well

I also love the looks of Mathilde, Paola and Marie-Chantal
Too bad Charlene couldn't make it, we could have finally seen her with a tiara.
But also good she didn't came for we would have missed fabulous Caroline

Mathilde definitely my favourite so far for this agree, and I disagree Alexandra doesn't look fat or pregnant, it's the style of the outfit which is extremely popular at the moment.

MT looked stunning in that gold outfit! Tessy and Alexandra's oufits don't impress me.

My favourites: Maxima, Mathilde and Märtha Louise.

I dislike the hairdo of Mette-Marit. It looks so "ordinary" like nothing special.

For me, the winner is Mathilde by a mile.

Although I dislike the colour green I loved the make and style of Princess Claire's dress.
