CP MM looks very radiant and lovey...
She may have had her rocky start to the world or royalty...but she's seem to be making up for lost time now!

She and CP Mary are the only 2 Pss that have very individual and unique sense of fashion and seem to always be able to carry off what most women can't!

I would like to add Caroline of Monaco to the list...

Actually, these women have strong personalities that reflect onto their outer appearance. These women carry clothes, the clothes don't carry them!!!!

Thanks for all the pictures everybody!

It seems to me that each time Mette-Marit goes abroad she debuts a new wardrobe, or at least she sports new clothing more often on trips abroad then when on royal duties at home.

For example, the creamy coloured skirt and top on the trip to Iceland. This green top to Thailand.

I liked the pale pink Chanel outfit she arrived in. Personally I think the green top and whie skirt looked a little school girlish, but maybe it is very warm there now. I love the green color on her

What I dont like at all are those AWFUL dark roots showing, before you go on such an official trip you could atleast see the hairdresser before leaving,it ruins the overall impression IMO. Her shooes are very stylish but unfotunatly her posture has ben really awful so far in Thailand, I dont know why she had improved it, but maybe it is because she is very tall compared to many of the Thais, anyway it does not look good.

It seems she has gotten a new pair of earrings, looks like Amethysts to me, maybe a gift?

And silver shoes

The pink outfit looked very lovely an nice. I think she wears pink well. It is only a pity that she didn't do something different with her hair. The green top and pants were also nice, but her (bad) habit of slouching made the top look ill-fitting in some pictures.

They amethyst earrings will go quite well with the amethyst tiara.

DAY 2
November 24, 2004: Prince Haakon and Princess Mette Marit visit the Grand Palace. The crown princely couple all visited Royal Chitralada Projects.

I was actually impressed by Mette Marit dress yesterday, but today, she changed all that. Today, she looks so-so, as if she hasn't spent any time on her appearance. White top with White skirt--no splash of color. And the top looks ill fitting...

I agree that a little colour in the mix wouldn't hurt. Just white in the strong sun, with her light hair and complexion doesn't look very nice.

I also think the top would look better with a skirt that doesn't fall straight down, or the skirt would look better with another top. The two don't match.
