I had a tough time on this one. I see Margrethe went from the ridiculous to the sublime this week. I gave it to her sister Benedikte, who is always stunningly dressed. I did like Margrethe's powder blue gown, Rania's gown, and several of the others, and of course, Queen Elizabeth, rockin' that evening wear at nearly 90!

My vote went to Maxima's blue inauguration dress, solely because we saw it without the cape and were treated to more of the exquisite embroidery! Second place goes to Queen Margrethe's new lilac/blue gown. I have always loved these and because the style is based on the same pattern it is always fun to see the different colour and embellishment possibilities.

I voted for Queen Maxima's blue gown. She was stunning. I loved this dress since the first time I saw it at the Inauguration. I like the colour and the lace details are lovely.
I also liked the white gown worn by Crown Princess Mary and the green lace gown of Crown Princess Victoria. They both looked really elegant.

The problem with Queen Elizabeth's dresses is the predictability (always white) and the shapeless form. Of course the Queen is a very old lady, but I feel some improvement is possible in her evening wear.

The button next to Maxima's dress should be the 16th one down the list. Count them from top to bottom and choose the 16th one. I hope that helps

That helped me a ton ! May have bad eyesight, but I can count to 16. Got the right one. Thanks.
I had a little bit of a hard time. Loved Max in red- as I call it the strawberry dress, Queen Margethe in peach, and Camilla in gold.
But in the end it wasn't that hard a choice- Maxima in that beautiful blue gown, with tiara- says " Hello , Her Majesty the Queen is here." , and I love it when the Queen totally shows up.
2nd- would be the red dress. I probably would have voted it for it, had there either been a tiara, or had it had 2 shoulders.
3rd- QM in peach
4th- Camilla in gold. I like it- what can I say?

Glad that was helpful roseroyal.

I voted for Maxima as well. I almost voted for Lalla Salma in her stunning all-gold ensemble but in the end I had to go with the vibrant blue of Maxima's coronation gown.

I liked several gowns, the blue and red ones by Maxima's and Letizia's pale blue repeat. But in the end I voted for princess Lalla Salma. I really like caftans, and that one in particular was beautiful and suited her hair very well. The gold jewelry was a nice finishing touch. She looks amazing.

I liked Queen Margrethe's pale blue dress. Since it received several votes I can be sure that I'm not alone with that opinion. But she has already repeated it this month for her birthday dinner. That's a bit too early imo, but it's typical for Queen Daisy!

I voted for Queen Margrethe on March 17, because that shade of blue looks wonderful on her and she rocks gowns. She also looks every inch the Queen here.

Runners up are CP Victoria's green gown, Queen Maxima's blue gown, and Queen Letizia's dusky grey gown.

Lalla Salma indeed looked stunning, she knows what suits her and chose colours that flatter her so much. But the other Morrocan ladies in their caftons looked gorgeous as well. Especially the purple of Lalla Meryem's gown stands out, imo.

It's lovely to see more details of the dress. In the wide shots the material didn't really show. I love the lacy details of the shawl. Wonder if the skirt is also made with lace?

I wasn't overly impressed with the front view of Mary's black gown, but the back view has made me appreciate it. It's actually a lovely dress.

I like them all, as long as the fit is loose and comfort fitting. The style is dependent on the material, dependent on the occasion. Personally I like the pinkish, beige and brown combo. Either green, orange, yellow or pink with beige and brown and I could like it. Really though the March 11th with the satiny material and March 18th with the white ruffles I favor. I'd wear them all.

The thing I disliked about Mary's black strapless gown was the bust. I thought it looked a bit tight, almost like her chest was slightly squished/flattened. Although that impression might be due to the fact that the fabric was stiff and shiny.
