I wondered the same--anorexia or bulimia but I hope it's not an illness of any kind. Yes, it is possible to be too thin in spite of what the Duchess of Windsor supposedly said. I believe at one point Victoria was treated for anorexia? I could be remembering about the wrong person but I certainly understand how someone who is high profile/stress level can be prone to an eating disorder.

You can see that the material on the shoulder is wider on the First Lady, the colour is different, and the first ladies dress has a band around the middle, whereas the Princess' doesn't.

So they have bought a dress similar, or the dress that she wore?
I would think that Letizia would keep the original?

Crown Princess Victoria and Daniel Westling's wedding: Queen Rania and Crown Princess Mary voted most elegant guest

I was shocked when I saw this in the latest Hello issue.

I thought it was one of her better efforts. In addition, while neither Rania or Mary looked bad IMO, neither of them were exceptional.

I don't know if they only focused on the younger royals, I didn't see the poll myself.
I agree that Mabel was the worst, Laurentien wasn't that bad I loved the colours in the dress, my only concern was the fact that it wasn't floor length.

I loved Mary's dress, it was my favourite and Silvia was my second. Rania should have been second to last.

Thumbs up Princess Victoria Wedding Cake Information

If you go to the Swedish Association Of Bakers And Confectioners website, you find all the details on the wedding cake and huge photos. It is in both English and Swedish language.

Beautiful photos. The cake seems so plain when seen from a distance, but seeing the high res photos you realize how much detail is in it and how much work it took to put together. A lovely work of culinary art.

Victoria's wedding dress looked OK but perhaps a few beads and sequins here and there would add a little sparkle.

Why does the picture of the piece of cake not look like it came from the whole cake? The outside doesn't look smooth and there is a chocolate circle on it. (I'm guessing it's chocolate.)

Now that my appetite is thoroughly wetted by the photos and description of the cake, I'll have a piece, thank you very much!

I think Victoria's mega-watt smile would have totally eclipsed any tacky beads and sequins. It's a wedding dress, not a contender for a Latin American Dance contest.

I agree; her dress was elegant!!! It suited her perfectly and IMHO, one of the most beautiful wedding dresses. Her lace veil was beautiful as well ( it appears to be the one her mother wore as well).

Victoria's dress is now within the top 3 of my picks.

The dress was spectacular just becasue of the absence of such stuff.
