Crown Princess Victoria at the opera this evening as part of the Swedish Parliament opening events,
I loved the day time outfit, but this time I don't like her choice, not the best cut and fabric in my
eyes.

Here´s a HQ photo.

The dress is very similar that she has used during the last weeks. She glows such a happiness that she can wear anything and look good. Her hair looks nice and the necklace is recycled from the wedding of Anna Westling.

Even a glowing and pregnant CP Victoria is not capable of looking good in one of the ugliest outfits I've ever seen on her (or on anyone else, for that matter).
I'm sorry to say, but everything about it including the fake jewelry is just horrid.

You know something is wrong when the tights and shoes are the best thing in the entire outfit.

Oh well...we have several months to go. I am sure this is just a misstep.

Oh dear! Just when I thought she had it nailed, out comes this monstrosity.

Actually I am not keen on the actual style as, regardless of length, it tends to hitch up in the front. Raising her hand to wave really exacerbates this.

Ho hum, maybe better next time. As has been said earlier, there's months to go . . . . . .

Oy. This silver contraption has to be one of the ugliest things I've ever seen. At first glance it reminded me of a wrinkled raincoat, or aluminum foil. Sorry, but it's just a plain 'no'.

It looks like one of those metallic blankets they put on runners after they cross the finish line at a marathon. I think everyone is in agreement that the only saving grace for the entire outfit is her beaming smile.

The dress material needs used for it's original purpose, which must be for Christmas tree decorations.

The day outfit for the opening of Parliment was fab. Which makes the night outfit that much worse. Somebody please throw the silver wrapping paper dress away!

What a horror outfit - everything is wrong here, the silver shiny trashbag supposed to be a dress, the shiny tights and the fake ugly "jewellery"

That is a really bad choice of dress. Im sure there are many other nicer dresses she could've chosen. The fabric is too shiny and too silver to go with the tights and the necklace. Why would you wear an accessorized necklace to such an event when you have your hand at the real thing.

The horror!
There's not any part of this outfit you could say something nice about. I guess the people around had better worn sunglasses.
