Since i think that oll the main royal women wore underwhelming outifits, I voted other: Princess Leonore of Sweden was the best dressed IMO.

Yes, I'm afraid I was a bit underwhelmed as well, and the Royal children WERE all nicely dressed. However, as I quite like the colour of Victoria's outfit, though not the cut or length, (and why the cutesy little girl headbands on her and Sofia's heads?) I voted for her.

Not impressed by most of these looks but I voted for Victoria. Very beautiful color and design. I also loved Leonore's dress.

I voted for Sofia. Nice length, nice cut, nice place pattern (this coming from someone who normally doesn't like lace very much), a perfect colour for the mother of the child who's to be christened. I also liked her hair and headband. It reminded me of CP Mary's christening facinater somehow. Sofia looked perfect and elegant.

Silvia is a close so fond for me. Nice colour, nice flower applications.

Victoria has the thumps up from her neck upwards. Hair perfect and I also liked the 50th style headband. But her dress was a total miss for me. Awkward length and to much holes. Would have looked good on the beach with flip flops and sunglasses but looked out of place at the christening.

Similar goes for Madeleine. Great hair, nice hair piece, but a total more as dress wise. To dark for a christening. And the white collar looked just plain weird on the to dark dress. Without the collar and with another colour the dress would have been great. Maybe brown/beige or pink/white or blue/gray. Especially blue/grey would have been great, because it would have accented her beautiful eyes perfectly.

Use your chance, Sofia. You're doing a fine job so far.

There seems to be a slight coordination between Sofia and Victoria's outfits. I was surprised to see Madeleine stand out completely in her printed dress. But perhaps the slightly matching ensembles were meant to be confined to the mother and godmother of the infant. Either way I always find it interesting when the Swedish royals ladies coordinate.

My vote went to CP Victoria. The wide swing of the longish skirt was just to my taste. And the pink lace was lovely!

All under whelming and was tempted to vote other for the kids who were all well dressed and adorable. The adults all had misses

Victoria got my vote. I absolutely loved the color and it made me ignore the lace. I loved the length and style. My only complaint is the headband.

Marianne came in almost a tie. I think she looked very lovely. Nice to see he there.

Madeleine came in third. Hated the collar but I like the style and color. And the print is even growing on me. He hair styling certainly took the day.

Sylvia and Sofia were near a tie for last. Sylvia I have nudge out Sofia as I love the color. But not a fan of the 3D flowers on her head or dress.

Sofia I found a total miss but for her glowing happiness. I find it a failed attempt of mimicking Victoria at her son's. The lace was cheap looking, and white seems too severe on her. Her pearl headband looks like some costume head piece from a period movie and not in a good way.

I like Sofia's outfit the best, as even though I think she could have done better I also think that the lace was beautiful and suited her. Silvia's was my next favourite, I thought it was a quirky outfit and I loved the colour. Like a few of the previous posters, I found the other outfits to be a bit underwhelming.

I voted for CP Victoria. I really liked her dress, the color and the style.
Next runner up was Madeleine.
