I was very tempted to vote for the sheer chutzpah of Queen Maxima's outfit on September 20th, but in the end gave my vote to Princess Madeleine of Sweden (September 16th) for daring to wear a gown that was fresh and summery looking but with an unusual one shoulder bodice.

Finally CP Mary repeated this gown! I loved it the first time she wore this unusually patterned gown, and I still do. Full marks and my vote.

Some fantastic looks

1 Madeleine. Gown is fresh and different, styling is great.

2 Mary. Her styling is sensational and accessories. But not a huge fan of the print

3 maxima. I love the chances she takes.

I find Sonja and Victoria both look quite beautiful too, but nothing too exciting.

Such a tough choice! I was torn between Princess Mary and Queen Maxima, but went with the latter in the end only because it was cleverly put together for a day-time event.

I do have a third, which was Queen Silvia's gown in that lovely shade of blue and very elegantly worn.

I love Queen Sonja's dress, great neckline (is that how it's called? ).

Btw, there's an unattached third hand on Mary's waist.

I voted for Queen Sonja on September 26. She looked every inch a queen and the colour suits her a lot, too. My runners up would be CP Victoria on September 16, Princess Sofia on September 16 and CP Mary on September 28.
