a sweet anecdote: estelle and oscar's nanny was seen today wearing a dress which was previously worn by victoria. whether they both have the same dress, we don't know, but we can speculate that it is likely that victoria lent her nanny her dress - i thought this was sweet and showed victoria's approachable demeanor and humbleness.

Victoria's white dress first impression was a nurse outfit which had been dressed up with the belt and wedges.
I dont like the ruffle on her dress. The wedges look like something Letizia would wear. Hair do looks great.

The look was disappointing to me.

The dress is nothing special, and her hair is awful!
Her features are irregular and she needs a style that will soften and flatter, not something extremely severe.

Here are some pictures that show the dress to better advantage:

Swedish Royal Family Celebrates Crown Princess Victoria’s 39th Birthday

Especially love the one of Victoria and Estella strolling away. Estelle's posture and her steps exactly mimic her mother's!

I, too, sometimes wish that Victoria's hair was less severe- but when she wears it down, she looks a bit too glamourous- I think she prefers to appear businesslike.

I think that today Victoria looked lovely. I wasn't expecting anything glam or chic, as she usually wear rather casual or informal outfit on her birthday. I would say she makes a fine choice, as it results in being more approchable with people in Solliden.

The dress was just meh to me. And I totally dislike the shoes; they look so heavy and clunky to me. Her hair is the same old severe "do". I love her beaming smile and she radiates happiness!

That Oscar is just the best accessory. I am seeing a lot of his Mom in him and he clearly has a very kissable head. And a very cute Yawn! |-O
I think a white shirt-dress can be difficult out of doors in the summer because it photographs fairly flatly and styling details can get lost in the glare off the white.
The hair was normal, I thought.
The shoes made sense when I saw the belt - both a bit heavy, which is a trend, if not to all's taste. I thought it worked as holiday princess wear!

I thought she looked lovely. The dress wasn't exciting but for a simple courtyard event, didn't need to be. It was fresh, I even like the ruffle which gives some detail. The belt is a fantastic addition and while I don't like the wedge part, the shoes I love. Its the kind of dress I have come to expect from this type of event.

I still find it odd only her and her mother where the traditional dress at the concert. If anyone should be able to get out of it, its the birthday girl. She looks odd next to Maddie and Sofia in modern clothes.

I thought the same thing - when she was carrying Oscar, who covered her belt she looked like his nurse.

Dress is very simple and needs some accessories, I neither like the belt nor the shoes.

I liked Victoria's white dress. I only wish she had choosen different belt and shoes to go with it. That brown belt looked too heavy and those shoes were awful, so the overall look was kinda bulky and quite strange, but manly! Her hairdo didn't help either - its just too tight and severe with her features! She needs softer hairstyles!
Not the worst look by her but not the best either (I liked her last year's look much better).

The dress is beautiful and summery and just the right choice to an event with meeting people at a courtyard on a sunny summer day. The belt and shoes were a great choice, their different style gives edge to the dress's romantic style. And wedges are a good choice to walking at a grass. Victoria's hairdo was gorgeous, like always, the bun was so beautiful. Victoria's hairstyle is just the right for her, it looks so good on her.
And it's also good that she recycled this dress from the National Day photos.

Yes I believe that Victoria is a very warm and generous natured woman and it's moments like these when we see evidence of our "assumptions". We have even seen her beautiful evening gowns on both family and friends.

You nailed it. It is essentially summer holidays and her dress was perfectly lovely and feminine although the jury is still out on the belt. Her shoes, while not a favourite of mine, are actually pretty sensible for gravel and grass and pick up the theme of her belt.

As to Victoria's hair, well it was quintessentially Victoria and I thought the low bun was very flattering. Victoria has never been one for masses of loose hair and when it's down it's lovely and flattering. But who's going to take a chance on the wind coming up causing a mess or the absolute certaintly that Oscar would make short work of any 'loose curls' around her face let alone totally loose.

The dress is much shorter on Adeline than on Victoria. And the slip is much shorter than on Victoria's dress. It doesn't look like Victoria's dress at all, although it is similar.
