I think Stephanie is trying too hard. She should had over her wardrobe duties to Elie Saab --- she looked fabulous at her pre Wedding dinner and at the wedding.

All of the Royal women with the exception of Mette-Marit look stunning. For me the standouts are Maxima and Mathilde. Letizia looks elegant and gorgeous as she always does in evening wear but she is so tiny and thin that I am not sure black is the right color for her...it makes her look almost frail.

Maxima looks gorgeous, gorgeous. Mathilde reminds me of Princess Grace in her heyday. I am so happy to see the Duchess of Cornwall there and she did not disappoint, very elegant and so is Princess Mary. I adore Princess Stephanie's shimmery sea green, she should take the wrap from her shoulders for full effect. I am a little disappointed with Victoria's gown but she is pretty anyway.

I don't know what went wrong with Mette-Marit. It looks like a nightgown you'd wear on the farm during a cold winter's night.

This is my favourite picture of the night, simply cos I am a great Prince Charles fan, and also I'm flying the flag for the over 60s (lots of v lovely 40 somethings there tonight)

Britains Prince Charles Of Wales And Camilla Duchess Of

Its as if he's telling the photographers to take pix of Camilla cos she is looking great. He is obviously so happy with her and she is a lovely to him now as she's always been. They work really well together.

And you were totally right, darling. MM is tall and beautiful and can look like dynamite when she wants. I have seen her do it!

I hate the Daily Fail, what a pointless rag it is. And that is one of their tackiest headlines EVER.

Ooh, that's a view I didn't think of, I just thought that he was doing a nice little jig down the red carpet and they were both very happy

Whichever way you/I look at it - I am so loving this picture of them, they both look soooo happy and it's lovely seeing Camilla in all of her finery

Except it turned out not to be the Stuart diamond, but apparently a diamond from Queen Emmas devante de corsage. Nice big diamond though that added some nice glitter to the evening.

Queen Beatrix looks amazing! Cannot say I am a fan of Princess Irene's black and white tartan skirt.....Not the best headline either!

Everyone looks utterly wonderful! What a lovely event and glittering with smiles and diamonds!!! Crown Princess Sarah chose a very clever design for her dress with the orange flowers against the blue background!
I do hope Masako is ok and hope maybe she has seen her parents?

I'd like to know what was on the menu too!

Hola Gallery:
La última cena de Beatriz de Holanda como reina y de Máxima de Holanda como princesa

Will you, royal watchers, burn me if I say that I think that Ms. Annan and Ms. Barroso were by far the best-dressed ladies tonight?
I think all the CPs looked quite blah, with the possible exception of Victoria (I love her dress). I hope tomorrow they´ll do better.
