Yes. That's how I felt too. She looks more like a bride at Victoria's pre wedding gala and I love that dreamy gown!! This gown is not for a bride but just a normal evening gown (even if it's Elie Saab) she could wear to any gala dinner.

Beautiful setting. What a lovely place for a wonderful pre wedding dinner. A fairytale.

It boggles my mind and quite frankly if it were my pre wedding dinner I would ask them to leave. All in all though, I have to say that most guests looked beautiful and chic and classy. Thank god. I am done ranting. :)
Here's my view:

The jut don't respect themselves.

With the royals, none of them know who they are and none of them know or care about their ancestry. CP Stephanie was one of the FEW females there who actully LOOKED like she was royalty and looked like she belonged and looked like someone who knew who she was.

Chris' mother Eva looks cocky and wears outfits which look good when you are 30, not 72 years old. Both the dinner dress and the bann dress were bad choices. Chris sisters from Eva's side are like their mother's copies, look every inch a high-class woman, no warmth to be seen in them. I'm looking forward to see Chris' sisters from his fathers side, maybe they are more likeable women
I don't think Eva looks cocky at all. She looks like any high society woman to me. In my opinion his sisters' gowns were entirely suitable for the occasion and I'll refrain from judging them and deciding if they're likable or hateful from this one occasion I've seen them.

Expressen's article about the party: Madeleine and Chris' closest friends held presentations about them with photos from their lives. There were many speeches and much dancing, long after midnight with music by live DJs. "It was a really fun party, much more fun than Victoria's party with more friends and a light atmosphere. They had fun with skits," a guest said.

Wow Victoria looked beautiful! Madeleine looked lovely but I guess she didn't want to overdo it since she'll really be dressing up for the wedding. I don't care for Sofia and I'm not trying to be mean, but that yellow dress looked tacky.

I thought it was just me who thought Sofia's dress was not attractive since they were raving about it in the Swedish media.

I think she looked awful...hair, makeup, dress...everything.

It sounds like it was a fun party though!

Sofia's yellow dress was the worst of the night. If it was in blue or purple it would've looked stunning on her. I just don't think yellow is her color.

I wonder if it was awkward with Emma and her fiance being there...

I disagree. This was the worst - I think I can see spanx and there is too much skin and not enough material.

Did Chris' paternal half-sisters not attend the dinner? I missed them!

Is Chris more "connected" with his maternal half-sisters?
