The dress and clutch are really lovely, but I also agree about her hosiery. Too much blue.

Everything but the blue hose is great! Good neckline, brooch, (wish I had a better glimpse), and length of dress. Flattering, elegant look, a low chignon would have made my day.
BTW, I had predicted V would be waving at the Finnish president from the hospital so she may make it to March!

Those ankles...

Her ankles are still fabulously slim- most women's ankles are the last thing to "go" before childbirth. But go they do! Perhaps she has another week or two before the big day.

Not much she can wear and look good in at this stage of pregnancy IMO but she does look good in that dress. The color is great but I don't like the same color stockings.

I like the dress but I wish she wore it without the stockings.

I'm with other posters: nice dress but the stockings are too much, colourwise.

That is not a brooch but an order she is wearing?

The dress is ok, but the blue hose is terrible

Victoria looks good! I really like the dress but no the matching stockings. Nice clutch

I love the dress, but agree about the blue stockings. I think nude ones would have been better. She looks lovely.

It is a brooch, designed by president Tarja Halonen. The little blue "thing" doesn´t belong to the brooch.

Queen Silvia wore the same brooch today:

President Halonen gave the brooch to queen Silvia on their visit to Finland in 2003 and to Victoria on hers and Daniel´s visit to Finland in 2010.

Victoria looks very good! She doesn't look "big" for someone who is due very soon!

I think this is the best she's looked during her pregnancy. As with what Kate wore today, matching tights to create a 'block' of colour is very much in right now. I liked the whole outfit.

Now that its over, I will officially say that nothing Victoria wore while she was pregnant impressed me. In all the one word I would use to describe her fashion choice while pregnant is homely and plain....perhaps that is too harsh, maybe unimpressive is a better word for it.

Yes, Victoria rocked with her maternity Nobel appearances, I thought. Her daywear left much to be desired, though.

Well all I can say and IMO am pleased the pregnancy has come to an end in the fashion stakes as I just could not look another horrible sack dress and dark tights she was not at her best ... but it's over and on to better fashion choices.
