Princess Madeleine, this gown said *pure elegance*, the color, the style, the fabric all came together for one very elegant gown. Princess Madeleine looked very regal and stunning with the jewels to match.

My favourite was CP Victoria's purple dress because I love the colour and the flowing material, especially in the top part. My second choice would be Madeleine on the first night, but that colour bored me and I don't find the neckline appealing. It looks a bit too buttoned up for my taste.

Gown alone, Victoria's dark purple.

But the whole look, definitely Maddy's first look. The gown was beautiful, even if the color was not as striking as some. But paired with the elegant hair, the koshnik tiara and makeup, she was stunning.

I voted for Victoria's purple gown. She looked elegant and effortlessly regal.

My favorites:

1. Victoria's purple dress
2. Madeleine's grey dress
3. Silvia's red dress

It was a toss up between Victoria and Madeleine but Madeleine had the edge because Madeleine had the aquamarine tiara on the first night. I wasn't a fan of Madeleine's 2nd gown. Victoria looked great on both nights.

My vote went to Victoria on December 10. I always love her in purple and found her gown to be the most feminine.
Madeleine's pale gray dress was also beautiful. It looked almost ethereal on video, with the beads twinkling as she moved. I liked Sofia's gown from the second gala, quite pretty, but nothing too original.

Victoria's dress reminded me of Mary on Madeleine's wedding day (the chiffon cape part of it anyway). It's a lovely, delicate detail.

Victoria's purple dress on 1st place for me, and Mette Marit's white gown on 2nd.
