Hee, my first post on the board but I had to de-lurk to ask, were not Luxembourg royals not invited? I didn't see any members of the family in the pictures. Otherwise thanks to everyone for the lovely pictures.

well, at least we got to see some pictures of the gorgeous dresses!

mary: i think it's a great dress. however, i am not sure of the combination of a broderie type of top with a black skirt with a stripped detail. it nevertheless looked very nice.
maxima: i love the dress. i don't think it was the most appropriate - i think the ocassion required something more 'classic'. however, valentino suits her. she always shines in their designs.
mathilde: perfection. great, subtle colour, classic cut but with a trendy detail. just perfect, as always.
letizia: no good pictures of her dress, but i love she chose to wear blue. it's a great colour for a night gown and she never wore it before. i hope we get to see the full dress (however, she likes recycling and i'm pretty sure we will get to see it in the next couple of galas).
victoria: oh no. not the purple dress again. i love it, but this was the chance to shine! why not recycling one we have seen a bit less?

Okay folks! ... having seen CP Mary's dress I'll have to admit that it wasn't her finest moment!

Carlota! Maybe Victoria knew that noone would know, apart from the royal fashion police at TRF .

That said: Mathilde is usually the most conservatively dressed and thus, the most royal of the European crown princesses, with CP Victoria running a close second! As for Mette-Marit, Mary, Maxima and Letizia, we should still expect the occasional sartorial disaster!

I don't understand your complaining about Maxima either, sorry. A lot of the other women there were pictured also leaving that hotel and we got pictures of them too now so I fail to see your point. Even if those photos had not been there, then maybe the paparazzi there were just more interested in her than in some of the other ones or maybe there car was further away.

Welcome to the world of active posting! I hope you stick around.

I'm not sure there's an official list of invitees, so we may not know if they were invited and refused or weren't invited. I believe the Monaco royals weren't there either.

Thank you for this milla Ca, I thought I was on the wrong thread until I saw this. I still think all the women looked fabulous and were appropriately dressed for a formal occasion.

The best dressed award of the night however, belongs to Prince Charles - remember him, it's his birthday!

The official portrait of Prince Charles is magnificent - really wonderful!

As for the party dresses:

Marie Chantal - total disaster from the Madonna hairdo (including the dark roots) to the ugly Goth outfit, swinging pearls and seemingly bad attitude - she looked like she didn't want to even be there

Victoria - looks like she was wearing her recycled purple haltered dress - it's like a reject from the 70's

Mathilde - looked angelic and gorgeous

Mary - just such a mish-mash of looks - Victorian lace top teamed with a modern skirt with white stripes - the fabrics clashed - each piece on its own would be wonderful but not paired together - her hair, make-up and jewelry were exquisite

Maxima - looked fabulous - she was going to a birthday party and she looked ready to party! Her hair and make-up were flawless - all of the other ladies were bundled up in the cold rain, how did she stand being bare-shouldered outdoors?

Letizia - looked too safe and bland - and she was wearing her favorite clodhoppers: those platform peeptoe pumps, but this time in satin dyed to match her dress

Sophie - hard to tell from a car window but she looked like she didn't even do anything with her hair -

Cristina of Spain - lately, she has managed to looked really wonderful. I liked her whole look -

Camilla - I wish that she had worn a darker color as light colors seem to wash her out with her light-colored hair - she looks stunning in navy blue -

Beatrice - looks like she has cut her hair - she looked older and more mature in the photo

Where were the Luxembourgs and Lieschtensteins?
Odd absence -
