As I see, I loved the Sofia dress. The blue one was great in her body. She looked stunning.

Queen Silvia made a good choice wearing pants, because it seamt confortable. Victoria and Madeleine looked great.

The fabric is see-through down to the waist. There are however skin coloured pasties covering the nipples.

It is exciting to see what the wedding dress will be like. I doubt it will be boring!

I thought Sofia looked beautiful and happy. Queen Silvia's ensemble a question mark for me. Both Victoria and Madeleine looked beautiful. Madeleine and Chris looked very very happy.

Um no. That could very well be flesh-colored fabric added to line the dress.

Ok, I get it. No-one wants to believe that it's a really daring dress. But I see the borders of the skin-coloured bits and they only cover the middle of breasts.

I have no problem with this. I hope she dares to wear something more bold tomorrow. We've seen so many boring dresses. Like the reporters said, something with a "Hollywood feeling".

If there were a flesh covered lining in the dress why would we see those glaring pink pasties?

While I thought the dress beautiful from afar, I'm starting to wonder what was she thinking?

I have reviewed all the images of Sofia's gown tonight. I see flesh colored fabric or built in bra into her bodice. The bit of pink that you are seeing I believe is reflection of the red carpet they are walking on in the crystals of her bodice. They would reflect pinky shades.

That makes sense, I was starting to wonder if that pink weren't a reflection of something.

Yes, I designed couture bridal gowns years ago with emphasis on crystal beading. My bet is there was an inner corset in flesh silk fabric, could be taffeta, with heavily beaded lace bodice of Swarovski crystals. With strong sunlight on the red carpet, water and crystals the diffused light through crystals would amplify reds and pinks.😏

Could not agree more.
Sofias dress is divine, a wonderfull and beautiful gown, the "Princess" of the evening. Suites her perfectly. Agree on Victoria and Madeleine and the questionmark on Queen Silvia.

Since my favorite color is blue, I am in love with Sofia's gown. I think the nude color heels play up the color of the dress. They look happy and I look forward to the wedding tomorrow. I hope I wake up in time to watch it!

I think Sofia looks fantastic and so very happy. Her gown is wonderfully imaginative, the colour is gorgeous on her and she has the fuller figure to really carry it off. Thanks baguetteprincess for you insight. I have been reading the posts and have to admit to giggling more than a little at the notion of "skin-coloured bits" being the only thing covering her breasts under the crystals.

As we all know and have seen, Sofia is quite generously endowed and the notion of her wearing a backless gown and no bra just doesn't hold up. I think her gown is a tribute to the skill artistry of the designer. Sofia has dressed perfectly for this occasion and looks set to fare well for the wedding gown.

I thought Victoria's gown was beautiful and a little more daring in the decolletage than we are used to. Regardless, she wore it with style and the elegance of her updo finished it perfectly. I thought Madeleine's gown looked wonderful. It is really difficult to find something comfortable to wear for a woman so close to term and I think she did remarkably well.

As to Silvia's pantsuit, the less said the better. The colour just didn't do it for her. There were several ensembles with pants and they were gorgeous, such as this one. Don't know who she is, but love her ensemble:

Yes, princess Christina attended yesterday at the graduation ceremony for the Sophia Sisters and delivered the exams at the Stockholm City Hall, she came to the dinner after that. She is the honorary chairman of the Sophia Home.

Why did Mette-Marit come with Prince Daniel and Victoria? I saw a photo about Haakon leaving the boat. He was also there... When did he come on boat? And strange that they leaving the boat separat... ?

The last pictures shows Mette-Marit alone:

Haakon came by car to the dinner, like Madeleine and Chris. He had a work event with king Harald yesterday, maybe he didn't get in time to catch the boat trip. Photo

I really like how warm their invite was to Mette-Marit. Many of the continental royals seem to be very warm and inviting people.
