Finally a nice look again for Mette-Marit, have been looking forward to this for ages! Everything looks really good on her. This is the way her hair should be!

I don't care much for that Giambattista Valli dress. The Crownprincess looks like she is wearing a nightgown. The Valentino one was a bit better, but not much. The most beautiful were the mint green one worn in the evening on that boat trip. Not lovely, but much better than the other too.

Too bad she picked such ugly dresses for such an important event. She wrote herself into history as the woman who came to the goodbye dinner for Queen Beatrix (queen at the time) in a night gown. Hideous beyond words, there are no shape whatsoever on that dress, and the floral print makes it look like sleepwear for a 96 year old.

The Crownprincss know how if she want to, but in Amsterdam she was disappointing big time.

This mint green dress was pretty and the best of the lot by default only because the other two were so awful.

I like the gown on her the colour is very flattering and the style with a waist really suits her. It is miles ahead of the tablecloth she wore in Holland IMO

On a funny note,lovely Dolly´s quote came to mind (she is always so disarmingly funny and makes jokes about herself all the time!)

“It costs a lot of money to look this cheap”

― Dolly Parton

I do not wish to pick on Mette-Marit because I like her as a person,however her styling is like a roller-coaster ride, sometimes ugly or strange, and than suddenly fabulous and feminine like her latest apperance!Just wow;-)

She needs more consistency in her styling,like CP Mary who knows what type of silhouettes and colours work well-she should find what suits her best and stay with what looks nice on her IMO.

Looks lovely in the mint green boat dress. It would seem hard to wear a dress like that but the waistline flattered her unlike the other flowy nightgown number.

Lovely coat and lovely overall IMO. I would've liked the coat to be an inch or so shorter though.

The white coat is ruining the look for me. She should've left it behind. If she got cold, she could've used a wrap IMO.

I don't really mind the coat. Here's a picture of the Valentino dress without the coat: Mette-Marit in 2010

Much nicer without the coat. The coat in general is not pretty nor do I like the fact it's short sleeved.

One of my favourite hairstyles on MM so far! Very elegant and graceful,also it seems like a hairstyle that is comfortable and does not need high maintenance which is good for an active person like Princess Mette-Marit :-)

The white coat looks like a 50ies inspired design,something that Jacqueline Kennedy or Audrey Hepburn would wear,very nice and classic. The yellow/gold/curry (what should we name this colour?) dress has a very charming colour,it looks great with MM´s hair and skin tone.
To me it seems like it is getting better and better on the sartorial side every day since that Giambattista Valli-hippy-dress, congratulations!

Like the fabric and cut of the white coat except the collar.
Love the gold color of the dress and the cut, but it looks too maternity for me.

Maybe it looks a little bit "maternity" because Mette-Marit does not have such a tiny waist like e.g Catherine does,but I find the dress quite nice and flattering,especially the colour!

It looks maternity to me because the waist set high, almost an empire waist and certainly not at the natural waist.
Whenever you attempt a waist that is not natural waist, which has nothing to do with how tiny your waist may be, or how thin you are, you risk the maternity look, imo.
