Mette-Marit always looks lovely in her national dress. I think that many of her successful fashion choices- mainly in evening wear- have the same sort of feeling that the national dress does. I like this gown a lot.

Nordic folksy look ? Her hair is a mess too.

The dress was aggravated by an unkempt hairstyle.

I see this a different way.
Her hair is texturized - or lightly waved. I see it all the time on people in photos. I'm not a fan either- but many people are and who am I to say? I see some tragic hair on other royals these days, JMO.
And while I personally would not aspire to a yellow, white and grey striped dress, this particular yellow and grey are good on her. I like the textural play in the tiers and I (for sure) have seen royals recently in far more ridiculous evening dresses.
I agree that the orders are not great on this dress.
I think she could win a lot more of us over if she were to just fake it until she makes it. By that I mean - do her job and look like she actually wants to be there. I smile at work all the time when when I would rather give someone the stink eye. It's my job. It's her job. Time to step up and not look bored and distracted. JMO.

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I think I like it? I mean the colour and the pattern are totally over the top, but she still looks good in it, which is often not the case with her evening dresses. I thing it would be great in a solid colour – royal blue, red or emerald green.

the colours are nice and overall it just looks like something different all together. a nice original take on a gala dress.

The style of dress is actually lovely IMO.

But the colors and pattern, and the texture, remind me of a nursery. Looks like a blanket for a baby when you don't know the gender. Not a good look.

Her hair needs fixing. And the tiara gets lost. I do wish she would wear something bigger. See,s odd a CP has such a minor piece.

I actually like the color of Mette-Marit's dress -- it has such a wonderful springlike color and somehow it looks so fresh and different from her usual style. Yellow-green-white colors work surprisingly well together. I would have preffered some cleavage because it would have created better silhouette.
Its a shame that her tiara gets lost in her blond hair.

Well, I like the colours, the material and the pattern and I like the idea that it could be inspired by a Nordic Spring - I even like the folk-style elements to it. But all these things combined is a little overwhelming - perhaps if, as previously mentioned, the silhouette was different or the sleeves were more fitted it would have worked better.

A different hairstyle would have helped as well, maybe put up higher.

Mette-Marit's style is really rather unique, incomprehensible at times, but individual and generally i think that's a good thing.

The colors are nice but the dress is not. I didn't even realize she had a tiara on as the whole look is so distracting.

MM's dress is just okay. Nothing exceptional about it. She looks nice, that's about all.

I love the embroidery detail but not the dress nor her hair.
