I love the vivid red of the Duchess of Cornwall's outfit on April 3rd. However, the ice blue outfit worn by Kate on March 17th was lovely, very elegant and suited her figure.

By the way, just an observation. I notice, because I usually vote early on these polls, that the numbers of people voting is often several more than those commenting on the outfits and why they voted as they did. This is so in the poll above. I know these polls aren't scientific and are primarily fun, but I hope that people aren't voting multiple times and/or not bothering to comment after casting a vote.

So many wonderful choices to make it is very hard. I have chosen Queen Margrethe because at her age she still rocks this style. Queen Mathilde was very difficult for me to go past. I also loved Mary"s edgy blue modern style of gown. Kate, Maxima and Camilla all good too.

Queen Maxima is stunning head to toe.

Queen Letizia is a close second in her beautiful ball gown.

Tie for Mathilde two looks. Stunning in both gowns.


Kate's blue dress is beautiful but unfortunately her styling loses it for me. There were some beautiful gowns but For me my picks had the whole package.

I'm still in raptures about Queen Maxima's gown from the Argentinian State Visit. The gown was perfection, imo, and Maxima wore it splendidly. My second choice would have been Queen Mathilde's orange number in Denmark. Letiza's gown in Japan was another stunner, but as it was a repetition, it only gets on my third place.

My vote went to Queen Mathilde's orange gown from the 28th. The color and style were superb. My other favorites were the Duchess of Cambridge's green lace gown (28th) and CP Mary's blue gown from the 30th.

I voted for the Duchess of Cambridge and her ice-blue dress. It was exquisite.

(I'm going to name a WORST- that is Mette-Marit's striped dress, it is simply hideous).

Queen Máxima. That gown looked sculpted, so perfectly as it draped on her.

Difficult choice but I voted for Letizia's purple dress, with my runner up being Maxima. I also love Marys blue gown, Mathilde's red and orange gowns, and Kate's ice blue and green gowns.

So many amazing gowns to choose from, we've been really spoilt for choice and it's tough to trying to decide!

But I voted for Empress Michiko's white and gold gown and cape because the detail was stunning and the whole look was ethereal!

A VERY close second was Queen Maxima's gown that we saw fully for the first time and not far behind was Queen Mathilde's red gown - her orange gown was beautiful too but I would like to see it in a different colour such as a light pink maybe.

I liked Maxima's, Kate's & Letizia's but went for Mathilde's. I think she shone on this vist.

I voted for Queen Maxima. Hands down the best evening gown. Loved everything about this look: wonderfully elegant gown, hair, jewellery, plus her stance...one of Maxima's best looks ever.
My second choice was princess Marie's dress she wore on 28th March.
Princes Caroline was my least favorite. Too dramatic and theatrical for my taste.
