I liked the clutch but the dress was a bit inapropriate for this kind of reception IMO. The perfect occasion ti wear it was indeed A&C' wedding back in July 2011

First time I've seen this dress. I love pink and purple, but what was she thinking? The top makes her breasts look lopsided. Big miss.

inappropriate? In what way? Because, let me tell you, far worse than a one shoulder gown has been worn to the Representatives Dinner in the past.

Is this the same dress that Victoria wore in Monaco??

If so, I absolutely loved the way it was worn:

Compared to this week's event, it looks incredibly frumpy:

as if had been in the wash and not been properly drycleaned.

Do you mean the bust area looks a bit too lose? I thought that when I sew the pictures that the dress top part didn't fit so nicely but ignoring that she looked good.

yes, the top part looks lose and frumpy, as does the skirt part. The monaco appearance was superpolished, I don't know what happened to the dress, the fabric looks worn out.

I guess it's her chest that has changed. It does that after having a kid, you know :P

It gives me a summery vibe and I think it was better for a summer wedding dinner as it was in july 2011... It just didn't fit the setting IMO. The fact that it was one shoulder doesn't matter to me

It is the dry cleaning's fault and bad material !

For Mathilde and Maxima , Natan's materials are often frumpy...

I think you're comparing photographs and not the gown. JMO. The two photographs are taken from a different angle and the lighting in both is massively different. In Monaco the camera flash (in the dark) washes out the details of the fabric, while the indoor photo, far more up close and at a level, reveals far more detail, to disadvantage according to the comments here. JMO.

I like the gown in both instances, though in terms of a prize-worthy photo, the Monaco photo wins hands-down. Photo-shop touch-ups are also possible. Victoria looks far more vibrant in the Monaco photo - tan helps - which impacts the 'sell' of the clothes. This is a perfect example of the 'sell' factor. To me the gown sits the same on her in both photos.

The dress looks interesting but I'm not sure if I like it.

When I looked at this earlier all I really considered wat the colour, hair, tiara and jewels. So now, looking at the whole effect . . . Yikes! At the very least it needed pressing but, either it stretched in the wash or, more likely, I think Victoria may have actually lost weight. There's more of the skirt lying on the ground.

Or, it stretched; she wore it for Prince Andreas' birthday celebration in June 2013, where we see that it's baggy round the bust, the pleats in the chiffon all over had lost it's tension.

Wow, if her best friend didn't tell her, surely her mother would!

I think she lost weight + her chest area has "relocated" a little since having Estelle. Totally normal, but maybe not pretty in this dress.

I love the colours and they're very 'Victoria', but I'm not a fan of the belt. It looks awkward and clunky with the dress, which is quite flowy and elegant. I think her tiara is alright, but I like it with her hairstyle.

This is the same dress that Victoria wore on October 22, 2014. But the colour looks so different! It must be the lighting.

Green looks in different shades at different photos. I liked this dress already at the first time and on Friday it looked even better. The hairdo is beautiful and the hair jewellery looks good.
