Wonderful and thoughtful postings. In a word, after reading all the interesting analogies I think it boils down to "respect" a word one poster used,
as the reason to dress well for the job of CP.

Though I really dislike Stephanie's dress, MM for me is the worst dressed this evening. Shame...

I see a brooch at the waist and a bracelet. No tiara? Or one worn on the back of the head?

Its a typical hippie MM appearance. The dress looks nightgownish, ok for an evening beach party. I can't really see, is she wearing a tiara?

Wow! Did MM think the dinner was on the beach or yacht? This is an unflattering dress. She has far much nicer dresses. Its a pity her tiara is lost in the hair do.

Oh my...she looks awful...bad fit and cut of the dress. I can not decide if she just does not care, no clue or awful taste in clothes. Really sad...

2013 just seems to be a year when MM has given up on everything. She just seems to thrown on whatever is at hand and hopes it is good enough.

Is the nightgown in question by Valentino? Did Crown Princess Mette-Marit wear the same dress attending some gala in New York?

Wow, I am shocked by her selection. She is such a beautiful woman, she could just about wear anything, but not this. It looks like my grandma's kitchen curtains, just awful, what was she thinking?? I know she owns a mirror, she should of looked before she left the hotel or wherever she is staying.

It's not the same dress. I think its a Giambattista Valli dress.
The dress in New York was said to be on loan to the Crown Princess at the time.

This is just not working because it doesnt fit. If it did she would look fine. And the colours are blerg

There are pictures of Salma walking behind MM. She looks beautiful. Similar style of dress with high necks, long sleeves and belted. So, so different. Because Salma is wearing the dress. The one on MM looks like its in charge.

Thanks for the information! I can not believe that this dress is by Giambattista Valli. His designs are usually exquisite. This particular dress made Crown Princess Mette-Marit appear bigger that she might be.
