I also love the dress.
I'm glad she wore shoes and has a purse in similar clothers. That's a better combination then what she had for Prince Charles' wedding.

I think Mette-Marit no matter what does not look like a princess. She seems very simple and even with a tiara, she does not represent the glamour that most princesses portray. I think that Maxima and Letizia are by far the best dressed. Mary, on the other hand, has a very unique taste, which to me, must be very danish. Mette-Marit needs work. Her posture, her gestures, her smile...

You are, of course, entitled to your opinion. (I expect Mary would be thrilled, if she'd known, that you found her taste Danish :))

I agree that there are points Mette-Marit has to work on. Her smile isn't one of these points, though. I think that glamour is possibly not her strong point, though she certainly does look glamorous enough at official occasions. Where she is great - and the article recently translated by KikkiB states this, too - is her personal warmth and her ability to connect with people. I think she's done extremely well, considering the point from where she started, so let's give her some credit for that!

Fashionverdict from Nettavisen:

The fashion experts thoughts on Mette-Marits norwegian dress was ranging from boring, neutral and OK, but that she herself looked fresh (Me: No comment on the ugly shoes ). The head of the fashionweek said they were happy that she was there, that he knows that she has for several years learned about and used norwegian fashion.

On the show: Everyone is disappointed. Some thinks they had seen it before, that the show was unprofessional and that Norwegian fashion has a long way to go before it can ever compete with Paris. They need more confidence and become more professional says Kikki Sørum, Mette-Marits harshest fashion critic, she further says that if Mette-Marit should choose a working wardrobe from what was presented yesteday it would not be easy for her.

Margrethe Gilbo who helped Mette-Marit with her wardrobe in the beginning said the show was a disaster, the models hair were overstyled, they did not do their job well and that the stage partly colapsed infront of the minister and Princess was unforgivable. The music was to loud and the Models did not walk properly even if there was some good design.

Kjell Nordstrøm (friend of Ari and Märtha) said that it is not Mette-Marits fault that Norwegian fashion is not better and that the designers should go home and work harder and get better. He was also angry that his work had not been credited in the show, but he liked the styling and concept of the show.

All in all not to good.
some more pictures of the clothes

When Mette-Marit left she said she looked forward to seeing more later this week, maybe that means that she will be on the show on Saturday where the more exclusive Norwegian designer will show their work, nothing on the agenda though.

Today she and Haakon hosts in their home a dinner for80 people with mental health problems.

Edit
Dagsavisen has a smal interview with her
"Are you particularely interested in fashiondesign?"
MM: It depends on what stage in my life Im on, when we moved I was very interested in things to the house, furniture and everyday use design. Now that Im pregnant I take and extra interest in baby designs.

"Will you attend other shows in the fashionweek"
MM: Im not sure yet, tomorrow we host a dinner for 80 people so I dont know if I will have time, but I would like to. I did see Arne & Carlos show last fashionweek also, I was very impressed it is very thought trough.

Carlos Zachariasen from Arne & Carlos says it does not matter to him what people wear, Im a designer not a fashion police he says.

Unlike other people, I like the dress - it's the deep tan that I'm more concerned about. Wasn't it just a few years ago that the princess was severely burned by the sun? I think if I were her, I would be using a sunscreen with an SPF of 1000!

Mette-Marit is at that pregnant stage were she has a slight pouch, not really a bump. It is easier to dress with a bump, but at the moment tight things just make her look like she has a belly.

If she went for the tight look the press would say it looked awful , so she can't win.


I do like the midnight blue colour against her tan, her shoes are a good shape but I think silver shoes and bag would have been better.

I love her hair this length, really suits her. I was looking back and pictures of her early royal days and it was shorter and darker hair. She is so meant to be a blonde.

The thing is you can have all the money and stylists in the World, it DOES NOT make you fashionable. Some people have a natural style (I think Victoria Beckham dresses herself well, I may not wear the clothes myself but they suit her) others learn to dress well.



It is not as if Mette-Marit became a princess and suddenly for all this fashion flair.

Yes it is nice and adds to the fairytale of the whole princess picture, look at Princess Diana. In the beginning she was shy and stayed "safe" but as she got older, gained confidence her outfits were beautiful and it added to the whole fairytale look.

Personally I am not too harsh on women Roayls, they have so many functions and dates it must be hard enough to decide what to wear.

BTW- Does Mette-Marit have a lady-in-waiting like Mary? Mary's wonderful lady-in-waiting seems to go to most people with her, never really noticed anyone with Mette-Marit.

I think Mette-Marit looked nice, a very summery outfit. The shoes though, they were..how should I put it... Terrible! :) I'm always amazed at how "Nordic" Mette-Marit looks somehow, her special blonde hair and light face makes her stand out as sort of a Nordic "stereotype" (in a good way). I think she's very naturally beautiful. Thanks Squidgy for posting the pictures!
