Yes!! Why oh why doesn't she do something with her hair? It's always strained back in a dowdy unflattering way.

Of all the royal ladies, I think Victoria has the worst hairstyle.

In Sweden, wearing hose in the summer is very uncommon, even among lawyers. It would have looked very matronly. Even my grandmother wouldn't wear them when she was alive. It is mostly people sensitive to draughts or people with visible veins that wear them. She might chose to wear hose if she were visiting in the US, though, where I understand it is considered more appropriate.

Apart from this, I thought her dress was a bit too short. But then I know I'm a bit conservative in that area.

i disagree. you have that opinion because you rarely see Victoria with her hair down, she likes up-duos more so she wears them more often.
besides, she is the princess in my opinion with the best up-duos out there! (aka: nobel prize, she got all this years amazing hairstyles and with diferent up-duos)

The dress is from swedish Mayla, as was the dress on her birthday:
Mayla | Designers | Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Stockholm
Pretty dress! The way everyone was talking I thought it would be a mini dress. I think the length of it is fine.

For these I can forgive the ever-present ponytail! Actually, it seems that she has shortened her hair around her face and when she does wear it in a ponytail it is no longer the utilitarian, severely scraped back, affair we were used to seeing. It seems softer somehow, and no, not just since the announcement of her pregnancy.

Can we focus on Vicky and her pregnancy? She's gained a few kilos, her hair is a bit messy....but who cares? She looks radiant.

She is going to be a great mom.

Is Victoria not just wearing plain, boring, ordinary, if not exceedingly expensive, fashionable clothes? I have yet to see her wear anything that could be remotely described as "Maternity Fashion".

When she is showing and wearing low heels I might just think it's because she is pregnant.

By the by, aren't the designers more than a little pipped at their latest "collection" being reduced from Divine, elegant, chic, to "Maternity Wear"?

Are we no longer to drool over a beautiful evening dress (last post on the evening wear thread 32 July) or stunning day wear (last post 3 August)? If so this could (fashion and event-wise) be one of the longest royal pregnancies in history!

Is Victoria's entire calendar to be marked by "Maternity" wear and relegated to just plain "Pregnant Victoria" instead of Princess Victoria wearing . . . . . ?

Haven´t we before posted comments about princesses´ fashion under "maternity fashion" thread immediately when the pregnancy has been confirmed.

Victoria yesterday at the wedding of Daniel´s sister Anna and Mikael Söderström.

Yes LadyFinn, that's how we've always done it - once a pregnancy is announced, out comes the Maternity Fashion thread and the others are shown the broom closet for six-seven months

So far, Victoria has gotten off to a good start with her pregnancy clothes - which can also be used after pregnancy as well. The purple tunic may have been a bit to short, but was a really nice colour and cut. The teal evening dress at Anna's wedding was also a nice colour on her, but was a little overdressed for the occassion - all the other women in the picture were wearing knee/cocktail length dresses.

I like the color of her dress/wrap. Very pretty. However, I think her best feature is her smile (just like the Duchess of Cambridge).

I don't understand why people complain that Victoria is wearing dresses that are too short, as I don't think the dress that CPSS Mary of Denmark is wearing in this picture is much longer: http://www.jv.dk/modules/xphoto/cache/14/615714_980_550_0_0_0_0.jpg and she is standing a bit bent forward here.

I find it too short, in general & especially for the event, and the silly hairpieces are back

Victoria looks beautiful at this sad day, her warmth and compassion are unique. The dress has lovely details, it is beautiful and not disturbingly short, especially because the concert wasn´t at a church.
