Fashion Poll: May 8-14, 2017

We're trying something new with the polls. You now have the option to pick more than one outfit. As you can see, the poll doesn't limit the number of outfits you can choose per vote, so please only pick your top 3 favorite outfits. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. We hope you enjoy the change.


Welcome to the Picture of the Week poll for the best fashion outfits worn by royals between May 8 and May 14, 2017.

The poll will close on May 21, 2017.

Please feel free to discuss which 3 outfits you voted for, but remember to tell us why.

A small group of team members/advisers have assisted the Picture of the Week coordinators in selecting these pictures. Their names are listed below:

We had a busy week, so a number of outfits didn't make it in the poll. Here are few of the other outfits that were worn during the week:

I had to give it to HGD Stephanie in the striking deep red Paula Ke ruffled wrap dress, with the Duchess of Cambridge a close second in the powder blue Emilia Wickstead coat dress..

Duchess of Cambridge from the 11th.

I have picked three on a not particularly outstanding week for fashion IMHO, though busy!
1 Queen Letizia's May 11th outfit for its unusual and distinctive pattern and her accessories (shoes) which perfectly matched.

2 Crown Princess Mary May 11th. Plum is an unusual colour and not particularly flattering to the complexion of many women, so a brave choice! I was not that in love with the blouse. However, I liked the skirt very much.

3 Queen Maxima. Again May 11th. Maxie is a vibrant person and the dress (surely a repeat) suits her personality. She is never afraid to use colour.

Fantastic idea to allow us to choose three - I'm always stuck on choosing a favourite and now don't feel so bad!

My choices are:

1st - Hereditary Grand Duchess Stephanie's red outfit complete with frill - because of the coverage of the event, we got to see better how it moved and how she looked generally and I think it was elegant and perfect for hosting.

2nd - Queen Letizia's black and green dress, I like the unusual pattern and colour combination

3rd - Princess Alexandra's black and yellow outfit, she looked chic and elegant!

It was a close call for me between HGD Stephanie and the DoC but in the end Stephanie won because of the way her dress moved. I don't think still photos did it justice...that, and her elegant loose updo gave her a push past the DoC this time imo.

I went with Kate's blue coat dress. She looks lovely in it, great color.

I do like Stephanie's red dress ..it was almost a tie.

I voted before reading the post, so I got stuck in the old routine and voted for one outfit only. But that doesn't matter much, but I like Queen Rania's green and black dress so much more than all the other choices, that I'm fine with voting only for it.

I picked Queen Letizia for May 8 and May 11. And my third pick is Crown Princess Mette Marit. I think Letizia is very stylish and she always looks good in whatever she wears. She has a lovely fashion sense, and I think she wears both dresses so well. I also like Letizia in the May 12 pale skirt and top ensemble. She looks so well pulled together, elegant and at ease.

I love the modified poncho that Mette Marit is wearing on May 10, with the black pants with flared bottom and heels. The poncho with side buttons is very unique and Marit looks so stylish and pulled together wearing it. Such a good fit on her as well.

My fourth choice is Queen Raina May 14, in the casual elegant white pants with gold top and the silver shoes; fifth choice is Duchess of Cambridge May 11, in the pulled together powder blue suit dress with it's perfectly draped folds; sixth choice is Princess Sofia May 10 in the lovely wide-tapered white pants and unusual gray shawl-shouldered top; 7th choice is Queen Rania May 8 in the striped b&w skirt with white blouse.

I'm surprised to see HGD Stephanie's red ruffled dress in the lead. I would have it further down in my standings behind my 7th choice Queen Mathilde May 10 who looks so lovely in the colorful pink & white ensemble with gray pants, and also behind my 8th choice Duchess of Cornwall in the elegant pale mauve dress suit on May 9, and 9th choice Duchess of Cambridge in the white dress on May 13. So HGD Stephanie would probably be my 10th choice, or maybe in 11th behind Duchess of Cornwall's white dress suit ensemble of May 10.

I think that the Duchess of Cornwall and Queen Elizabeth always dress neatly, beautifully and generally look good in their attire which suit their maturity and individual body types. They get good advice from their stylists/ designers. What QE is wearing on May 9 doesn't stand out as much as her outfits usually do because she generally wears more color. However, the white suit does have nice details and is attractive on her as always.

My top three picks stand out for me because Letizia and Mette are wearing the outfits, not the other way around. And they look elegant, stylish and comfortable. Plus, I love the unique choices (in print, cut and fit for Letizia, and in styling and flair for Mette). My other top choices also demonstrate elegance, comfort, and unique touches that stand out.

Princess Alexandra in the pants ensemble on May 10 looks neat, but nothing really stands out in a unique or stylish way, so I wouldn't have her on my list, though she would be over a number of other ladies who don't have any votes. I think HGD Stephanie's ruffled red dress looks good on her and it fits well, but it doesn't appeal to me that much. It seems too much for a daywear occasion.

From this sampling, I think Letizia and Rania, as well as Duchess of Cambridge, Mette Marit and Sophia are probably the most stylish and fashionable younger ladies of the group. Queen Mathilde, Queen Elizabeth, and Duchess of Cornwall are perhaps the most stylish older ladies.

Letizia and Rania are in the same age group as Queen Mathilde...the early 40-something age group.

So if Mathilde is an "older lady" so are Letizia and Rania.

Definitely. Mathilde is only 44. Sophie Wessex would be young end of the older group

Maxima, Letizia and Mary are all older than Mathilde. MM is a few months younger and Rania is a year younger. victoria would be the young end.

Kate would be high end of young group, which this week would included Sofia, Stephanie and Alexandra.

My choices

1 Stephanie was fantastic in red. A young fresh look. Age appropriate. Great styling.

2 To my surprise Letizia in green second. Still not fond of the mid section close up, looks ink blot. From a distance it really is lovely. Love the colors and over all style. Her hair is great.

3 Sophie in her great red coat and scarf in Norway. Bright cheerful look.

So my three votes above but not voted:


4 Maxima in her coral dress

5 Kate in her blue dress. Just barely makes my top five. Lovely but just another blue coat dress. Feels like we vote on this look all the time

6 Stephanie day look in Norway

7 Rania first look

8 Maxima day look in Norway

9 Letizia light skirt and top

10 Victoria pink coat in Norway

Ah, I didn't see the update about the new option of multiple choice when I voted! I shall have to remember that for next time.
Anyway, I voted for the Duchess of Cambridge on May 11. That shade of blue is beautiful and the coat is cut in quite an elegant style to. My runners up would be Queen Letizia on May 8, Queen Elizabeth on May 9, the Countess of Wessex on May 10 and Crown Princess Mette-Marit on May 10.

Oh well, I didn't know how old Queen Mathilde is, and from the pictures she did look a bit older than Rania and Letizia.

Lets face it, Letizia and Rania are the most stylish and elegant of all the ladies, regardless of how old they are. The Duchess of Cambridge is not far behind, although Kate does tend to be a bit conservative these days in how she dresses. But she always looks smart and pulled together.

From what I see of Stephanie, she dresses fine to suit her body type and she looks comfortable, but I don't see anything she's wearing as particularly 'young, fresh, and age appropriate.' Some of the older ladies look younger, fresher, and more stylish. JMHO.
