I loved the way she wore one of the tiaras to Joachim and Marie's wedding. It really looked lovely in her hair.

The second tiara is very pretty, but she didn't wear her hair in a style that worked with the tiara. It would have looked lovely with the hair up, or with some height on the top. I think that it would have been gorgeous in a style like this:

Carina is a beautifl ldy, but this outfit is too mature for a woman pushing 41. Carina sparkle just by smiling, but this dress is more suitable for a woman twenty years + her senior. But it was nice to see a picture of Carina again. She sure is a pretty woman.

The first tiara is a beautiful one. Was that worn at Marie & Joachim's wedding?

I agree; I posted on another thread that she should had worn the tiara similarly to the way Princess Alexandra SWB wears it. The gown did not fit her well at all; it just hanged.

A nice shot of Carina's ensemble at the Reedtz-Thott christening (she was the godmother.) http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/j...GavnCarina.jpg

It's a beautiful coat. I didn't know she was a godmother. Is this the same event that Mary was at?
The dress edge looks like Mary's she wore to Tattoo last year.

Yes, Lumutqueen, I believe that this is the same event that Mary attended (when she wore the mustard-colored dress). I like the shape of the coat, and her hair is really pretty. I am curious about the dress that she wore underneath the coat.

Carina wearing the same dress she wore to a public event in Denmark a couple of years ago. Personally, I'm not to wild about the chiffon cap thingy with the ensemble. And once again she is wearing her signature pearls with this number.

I really like the dress. The embroidery around the waist is beautiful. She looked great--imo one of the better dressed women at the christening.

I really like this dress. The black stripe on the bottom, and the detail at the waist are very pretty. I agree with Glittering Tiaras about the cape. It looks much better without the cape. I also think that she should have considered leaving the pearls at home. It doesn't have the right collar for a necklace, IMO.

Sharing the above opinions, I have to say that Ms. Axelsson's outfit was well-chosen. I like the shade of the grey colour. As much as I am fond of pearl necklaces, I tend to agree with sgl noting that the signature pearls did not suit the dress.

I love the dress that Carina wore, didn't care too much for the shawl. I like the fact that she wore her signature pearls. Shame she wasn't a godmother.

I like Carina's dress and the cape. The pearl necklace looks nice with the dress. I think she's better dressed than other women at the Prince Henrik's christening.

I think the dress is ok with or without the little cape since it is transparent. I agree she doesn't need the pearls though.

I didn't care for the cape at all; she wore it another christening last year.

We never really got a great shot of Carina wearing this dress at Prince Hendrik's birthday hoopla a couple of weeks ago. Many speculate that the dress actually belongs to Mary (not the first time the two shared clothing that has been published and photographed.)

Another ensemble and at Schloss Berleburg a couple of years ago wearing her signature neutral colors.

Thanks for the links, GlitteringTiaras! Do you know when/where the above photo was taken? I like the jacket, and the waist-detail. I'm not so keen on the dark stockings, but I think that she looks very nice.

Honestly, I'm not sure. Perhaps it was at some event in Germany whereupon Carina attended with Princess Benedikte.


And, I agree with you, SGL, I'm not a fan of the dark stockings either.

I also believe that it was a Christmas Function but for some reason in Denmark. Queen Anne Marie attended along with Princess Benedikte and Carina sat behind them. I remember reading that Carina spoke perfect Danish.

I wonder how she speaks German?

I really like Carina's style. She is very classy and understated. My ONLY critique of her appearance is her teeth. If she had them "fixed" she would be truly breathtaking.
