"The pattern is from the spring/summer 2013 collection, but this dress never showed up on the catwalk - it's most likely custom made."
This could be true, here is what I found from GV-the pattern looks very much like MM´s dress!
mytheresa.com - Giambattista Valli - Luxury Fashion for Women / Designer clothing, shoes, bags
I would not go so far to say that her dress is completely awful, but it is not the right choice for a formal event, it would be better for a relaxed party with friends or something like that...

Here is a front view of the lovely mint gown. Finally a lovely dress in a lovely color. I like the hair style with this dress and its a very boat trip/party style IMO. I don't care much for the jacket, it matches well.

She looks lovely for the first time in these two days!
I´m pleased
It´s a beautiful gown. She does quite well those soft, feminine looks, IMO.
Her hair looks pretty, as well.

Much, much better both in color and the soft flowing style. That looks like an interesting bracelet, too.

She could also just hire a stylist, give them some restrictions and a budget and let them find things for her. Stylists can do modest, you know.

I wonder if perhaps she was feeling that the Reception and Inauguration was not all about her fashion and style but rather that of Maxima. After Max had knocked our socks off Mette-Marit finally came out to play.

I can't quite understand why MM's consistently poor dressing choices of late should be attributable to 'modestness and reservedness'? MM is as fond of expensive designers as any of the CPs - she just doesn't seem to have the gift of knowing what she looks good wearing.
A reserved person would not turn up at a royal engagement with the combo of the white H&M mullet dress with black shooties, stockings and mismatched jacket as MM did lately; a reserved person would go for a more neutral look IMO.
MM can look smashing; I don't know if it only happens when she listens to advice from others. Especially lately, however, most of her choices have ranged from weird to downright ugly (sorry, no other term comes to mind). It's not a money thing - she has loads of expensive items in her closet.
She is usually very good in the shoe department though; she has an impressive and beautiful shoe collection. She just needs a consistent - and well-chosen - strategy for her clothing to go with it.

I too wonder why some people see MM as a modest and reserved person. I personally never met a party girl (appearing on TV when highly pregnant) who was modest and reserved. I have seen her twice in real life and reservedness was not my impression. I don't know how modest she is but IMO she clearly loves her position.
MM once said she took drugs because she wanted to be special, different.
IMO she dresses in this special, different way because that's the way she likes it - the majority here obviously does not.

For me this 2nd evening dress is just as ugly as the 1st.
But she looked fine at the day event. Her body has become rather plump though and the dress accentuated it.

I think MM beats even Mary on high class designers ... modest is something different and she spends an awful lot of money on stuff that doesnt suit her. But nobody seems to tell her, including the haute couture desginers themselves.

Its a strange way to show that one is 'different' or 'special' ... for me MM simply doesnt have a clue after almost 12 years of marriage what is befitting for a CP and what is not. Thankfully she lives in Norway where she gets away with it and is not being ripped apart for spending issues.

Back to the Amsterdam fashion, of course the flotilla outfit was the best one (not difficult, eh?) and the only one that hit the bar for such an event.
