I voted for Princess Marie, January 1, simple because it was the only dress I somewhat liked. My second vote would be Beatrice Borromeo, March 19.

Princess Astrid, March 3 - immaculate. Gloves, gown, posture, and everything.

Queen Mathilde got my vote. My second and third votes would go to Crown Princess Mary and Princess Marie both in white.

Since I couldn't make up my mind about 3 appereances, I chose the second one listed in my mind Princess Caroline of Monaco.

I liked Marie's white gown. She is usually quite elegant and she was here, though the fact of her putting on a sleeveless gown on a January day in Denmark did make me wish she'd put a warm jacket over it! I did like Beatrice B.'s vibrant red gown even if it was rather dressy for the occasion, so that was second

Oh this is so tough! But my vote went to Queen Margrethe's red gown on March 15th as I loved the drapey material and embroidery on the bodice. I also secretly wanted to make up for dismissing the gown a year or two ago when Margrethe first wore it as I didn't like the shape of the neckline, but seeing it again at that event it looked better.

My second choice was Queen Maxima's eye-catching purple and black gown in Paris - so different and unusual and perfect for the occasion!

I just loved Queen Maxima's statement gown in France. When I first saw it, my first thought was 'wow'. I still think it.

1. Marie's white gown. Stunning.
2. Beatrice's red dress. I loved the pop of color and the fact she embraced the theme of the ball. She would have got top vote except for her hair.
3. Mathilde. Stunning detail and gown. Color not my favorite though.

I voted for Beatrice Borremeo. The dress is and styling are a bit too 'Holywood' perhaps, but what a fabulous dress it is.

Beatrice for me too. She made quite an impression in that red dress.

I seem to be the only one who voted for Martha Louise's gown from January 17 but I simply loved it! The black with the gold embellished pattern kept catching my eye. It's such a different look for a royal evening gown. I wish we had more pictures of it.
I guess my second favourite would be Sofia's February 3 gown (I must be in a mood for glitter!)
I liked Maxima's March 11 dress for its unusual, bold look. It seemed to complement her personality really well.
Lots of navy blue dresses in this poll, the best for me was the one Mary wore for the New Year's reception.
