The dress is from swedish Jennifer Blom. "It' a great honour that the Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden decided to wear a customized exclusive dress ..."

I'd bet this dress was beautiful in person. The print is unusual but not unattractive at all. And there is something about a voluminous draping skirt that makes a woman feel so jejune! At least that's how it makes me feel.

What a wonderful dress! It looks very similar than MaxJenny! dresses and other outfits, they have city prints. Victoria looks absolutely gorgeous in it. And her posture is amazing.

I want to like Victoria's dress, but for some reason it just doesn't click with me. The idea is fun, because I like how it seems that the sights of Stockholm are printed on the dress. Perhaps I'll warm up to it.

Great cut and colors, but I really can't get past the very shiny fabric....

This dress is awful. Too much in design.

I really like this. This is fashion being fun while still very appropriate. She wore black/navy all day before this. Give the woman some space.

I love this! Shiny fabrics usually turn me off, but this looks great! I guess because the print of the fabric detracts from its shiny-ness.

I'm surprised by how much I love this dress, as well! The fabric is a little shiny but not too much, it fits her perfectly and the shape and silhouette are gorgeous. She's also kept her hair, shoes and accessories simple which makes a big difference.

I just think Victoria should change her footwear. She wears those high heeled pumps, red, black, many of them shiny and they just somehow don't suit her feet or legs, imo. Maybe it is the brand she is using or else the style just isn't for her.

I love the cut of the dress. Beautiful and flattering. Color is wonderful.

But I find it way too busy. The print and shiny material too much. The print is a good idea and would be interesting, but not in this shiny fabric. Pr the shiny colourful fabric without print. But not both. I'd prefer print and not shiny.

Sadly I haven't liked the evening looks on either lady both nights.

First there were swans and then there were houses...I don't know why but those fabrics remind me too much of a furniture and curtain fabrics!
Victoria has done some heavy shopping and we've seen lots of new outfits in this spring but her hairstyle has stayed the same..the same severely slicked down hairstyle for both day and evening events It would be great to see something else for a change! But somehow I doubt it.

This dress is simply awful.

I agree, her hairstyles are the same, nothing new for daytime or evening.

May 27 at her cousins wedding:

Dress like a Princess — Crown Princess Victoria at a family wedding, 27th...

A very beautiful gown. Not fond of her hair but the dress is stunning. I hope she wears it again.

I wish we could have better photos where we could see the dress properly on Victoria, but judging by the model I think the dress is beautiful. I love the colour.
