She looks good today. I like these Greta blouses. And the grey jacket is nice.

Having looked at the galleries over on the Current Events thread I have come to the conclusion that Victoria is trying to bring a little fresh and younger look, possibly because she has been hammered for looking very matronly.

Being pregnant does not help the confidence and Victoria has never been a fashionista. I don't think she has the time to shop for herself and I am not sure if she has an assistant or stylist, although I think not. She has always taken a practical approach to her "working" wardrobe, happy and confident climbing over large machinery at construction sites wearing safety clothes, gumboots and a hard hat.

Her "Crown Princess" persona has always been relegated to formal wear for funerals, opening of Parliament etc. and gala wear for State functions such as the Nobel's. Almost like working uniform and dress uniform.

I really like the pants and the jacket. The blouse is all right, but that bow is too big for my taste.

Victoria´s beige blouse wasn´t from Greta, it is from Malene Birger. Very similar than Greta´s blouses.

I think Victoria has always had a tendency to look frumpy and matronly, until she employed a stylist (at least this was circulated on various internet forums) and started to look fresh, stylish and young. Well, if there was a stylist he or she has left by now (to be precise when the pregnancy was announced), because Victoria is back to frumpy and matronly again, and being pregnant is not an excuse. Her appearance has aged about ten years or so, no comparison with the fresh timespan between engagement and shortly after the wedding.

The 3rd blouse in a row in the same style is ok but can still be worn when Victoria is 80 years old and I am not even getting started on the inevitable ponytail with hairclip.

The same black pants, big white blouse and odd jacket looked like she was scrambling to find something to wear. Some women get much bigger up top, as in Victoria's case, and that's a lot harder to dress than the growing tummy.
She could use some help, she obviously doesn't want to wear anything revealing, good, but a little simplicity, a few comfy stretchy pants and tunics, maybe nice double knit wool, would be better than this.
If I were her, I would have somethings made.

I think that has been the worst I have seen her hair, perhaps a tie with her hair at the Monaco wedding. I see no reason to wear maternity clothes when you are only in your first months, they don't start looking good until the belly is noticeable anyway. I guess I have just been spoiled by Victoria's outfit to the BRWedding and her engagement outfit, because apparently those are rare hits when she frequently has misses.

I somehow like this, it´s glittery but looks nice. Nice shoes. And I have always liked her ponytail, so I don´t mind it.

Best outfit for a while, minus the ponytail.

Oh dear.
The glistening fabric of the dress looks like it was wet, or made of fetish lycra, or if it was the backside of cheap silver lamé - along with the overall black, the careless ponytail and a very visible neckline insert added to reduce the cleavage, I actually find this quite unappealing and of low quality.
The comparable little black dress with the subtle glitter worn to a recent evening event was far classier.

To me, Victoria is glowing and happy and looks great. I do have to laugh at a lot of the comments, because I'd really like to see pictures of the severe critics of this very attractive young woman. You know, lots of places in the US are not known for their great sense of style,
Germany has never been known as being anything but rather frumpy and yet we sit here and criticize
Victoria. I sure didn't look as good when I was pregnant as Victoria does. Let's cut her some slack. You know the old saying, those that can do, those that can't criticize- and I mean that in the friendliest way

Well-oh-well…
I don’t quite comprehend the recurring appeal to focus on a Royal’s state of mind when posted under topics which are meant to focus on a Royal’s state of wardrobe.
The subject matter here is neither CP Victoria’s mood (she sure looks happy) or whether her pregnancy makes her glow (it does), but a discussion of the clothes she currently wears – her maternity fashion.
And in this case, the maternity fashion on happy, glowing Victoria IMHO simply happened to be quite bad:

I don't think that's exactly what I said. Tell me, do you visit WalMart much?:?

I should hope not...

well speaking as a mother who dressed up for work everyday of her horrible pregnancy, there are some days that one wants to look nice but just cant muster up the strength to put an outfit together. So you just grab some work clothes that look nice, match, are ironed, and a pair of comfortable shoes.
Every day I put on nylons and yanked them over my belly, which made me feel horrible. Then I stuffed my feet into my 4in heels. Once I was finished, I felt decent, not great, but decent. then there were days that I felt pretty.
I'm sure that almost every woman goes thru this in her pregnancy. And I'm sure Victoria is just trying to figure out what she likes to wear and how to dress her new body while continuing to be comfortable, look nice, and do her job.
Boring or not, she looks good whatever she wears. (but on that last look, I would have lightened up the nylons. A little more sheer, but still black,)

The reason I ask is that in WalMart you can find some real examples of bad taste and bad fashion. In fact, I'd bet that 1/3 of the people in there should be arrested for indecent exposure. There are degrees of taste for people and I really think we should let Victoria alone- you can criticize when you are pregnant and trying to look like a fashion model.

Just as a PS: My only consolation with all the critics is that I doubt that Victoria reads this topic and I also doubt that she'd care if she did read it.

The visible insert on the black dress did detract from it. Some jewelry would have helped.
The shoes looked very nice, I agree that the hose would have been nicer if they were sheer.
