I loved Crown Princess Victoria's look for baby Oscar's christening. Just loved it. However, the lack of a slip took a couple of points off for me. Not prudish and Victoria NEVER does that, but it was a tussle between Victoria's look and Crown Princess Mary's look for me, and Mary's stylish hat, dress, shoes, combo just won it. (I adored the colour of Madeleine's dress and her hair piece but wasn't a fan of the dress's sleeves.)

Victoria's dress had a slip, it can be clearly seen from this photo. It just wasn't thick enough. Obviously Victoria and her chambermaid didn't know that the slip wasn't thick enough.

1. Madeleine. Loved the color and style of the dress, except the sleeves. Her hair was stunning and she actually made me a fan of fascinators.

2. Mary was a very close second. Loved the hat and the style of the dress. But not a major fan of pattern.

3. MM. Loved the color. And I loved her accessories. Her dress was a bit boring though.

Victoria unfortunately I couldn't get past the thin slip, and not a big fan of her fascinator. No one had a flawless look IMO from head to toe, but Maddie came the closest for me.

It wasn't really that hard to vote. Princess Madeleine was the best-dressed, even though I'm not a fan of that sleeves. But I found the other dresses underwhelming or, in one case, awful.

For me it's a toss up between Maddie and Mary...very close, but I picked Maddie's outfit.

For me it was Mary. Hat & outfit were perfect for the event. Madde not bad either but Mary was a classic winner.

Madeleine was definitely the best dressed adult lady at the christening.

For me it is difficult to choose which royal young lady was the best dressed. Estelle and Leonore looked both very nice.

Mary and Madeleine were my favourites. I picked Mary just for bringing the old big-hat glamour.

I voted for CP Victoria, her dress was very light and summery and I like how it coordinated with Princess Estelle's. My next favourite is Queen Silvia's, but I'm not keen on the others.

The poll seems to be a close race between Madeleine and Mary. And these two outfits are easily those which I, too, found best. I love the sleeves on Madeleine's dress, they looked great with the soft colour of the outfit. But Mary wore this stunning, elegant hat, which won her lots of points with me. And I adore the pattern on her dress and how it graduates from dark bottom to light top. So I'm on team Mary this week.

I was torn between Crown Princess Mary and Princess Madeleine but in the end I voted for Mary. The only thing I didn't like of Princess Madeleine's dress were the sleeves, too wide for my taste. Crown Princess Mary was really elegant, I loved the dress and the accessories.

I loved CP Mary's outfit, so she got my vote. My second favorite was Princess Madeleine. She would have been my first choice, but I didn't like the sleeves of her dress.
