Mette-Marit opening a climbing wall

Rather boring outfit I must say, and whats up with her only buttoning one button at the top (she also did it on Iceland and to an art show) it would be more elegant if she buttoned all three, it looks sloppy. At least there has been an improvement in the hair department lately:)

Thank you for posting the pictures.
Strangely I didn´t notice the outfit (until I´ve read your comment), but her warm and great contact to the kids. I think that MM is a beautiful woman and I further think, that she has wonderful stylish outfits in her closet, also a few terrible looking.
I can´t explain it... but when I look at MM it´s not the style that I "see" firstly, but the things she´s doing (in a great way!). This is an complete opposite to my view on other Royal ladies. E.g. Queen Rania, crown princess Mary, princess Caroline...those women catch my eye through their looks (good dressed or bad dressed...doesn´t matter...firstly I look at their style)

I totally agree with you. I think she is very stylish, but that isn't what I see first. It is always the way she interacts with the people she is speaking with. It seems to me she has a very big heart! I really like her!

The same feeling you have for MM i have for Mathilde, I often thinks she dresses rather boring, but I dont notice because she seems so interested in those she meets and the things she sees, that is what is important. Totally agree about Caroline, extremly overrated IMO, she looks great in Chanel but there is not much more. Rania certainly is involved in many good causes, but her constant couture clothes takes away the attention from the causes and puts it on her clothes. Mary has not been around that long, I suppose she does everything shes supposed to but for me thats it, I have not yet gotten the good vibes that i get from Mathilde, Märtha Louise and Victoria.

As for MM, sometimes she looks great other times not so good, but she does seem very natural around the children, but I wish she would wear some more collours and loose the turtlenecks.

I think for an event like opening a rock climbing wall that she should have worn a pair of pants, just my opinion. The one buttoned blazer isn't particularly flattering for her in the bussom area, in the last picture it looks like she needed more "support".

Other than that she looks great.:)

I agree, not flattering, I think this outfit could have looked nice if it had been buttoned properly, now it just looks messy

Also on Iceland

Remember, the lady is breast feeding. That has to be uncomfortable. Special bra, & all that swelling.

That is another reason why she should button up her jackets more, instead of drawing attention to the area by buttoning up only the top button.:)

While I agree with you on the jacket it's possible she's having problems with it due to the breast feeding, know what I mean?

She doesn't need a huge allowance or even expensive designer clothing to look great.
That's true, you don't need that much money to dress well. I'm sure she has more than enough of a budget for that. Just look how nice you can dress even at Banana republic.... www.bananarepublic.com
