Good look on her. Suit fits her quite well and for once it doesn't look like she will trip over her pants. Very professional look I do wish she would try a different part in her hair but good choice over all

Isn't it the same suit that she wore at the Global Child Forum in South Africa?

Christening Prince Alexander

I don't like the white lace dress, especially not for this occasion. I like the pearl headband, but not with this outfit.

The middle parting hairstyle is most unflattering for Sofia.

I really like her hairstyle! I was hopin for a updo and she did it. I also very much like the headband.
The dress is not bad, I would say it is fine but it is reminiscent of Victoria's white outfit at Prince Oscar's christening.

I quite love her choice for the christening. Even the pearl headband, which can easily become really cheasy looking, looks good.

white lace custom made Ida Sjöstedt suit

I would not have guessed that this suit was custom made.

^^^ That designer is too much overrated imo, and Sofia's wedding dress didn't look custom-made either.

I like it, it gives a Nordic feel.

I liked it, both dress and headband.
Yes, it is a repeat of CP Victorias White dress at the baptism from her son.... but white Mama dress and white baptizm dress simply works perfect together!

So a clear GO for my side!

I'm not going to comment on what they were wearing, because I don't care very much because I think that's very superficial. I'm sure everyone was wearing what he/she had been told to wear. What I did notice is that Chris and Daniel are absolutely wonderful fathers, giving their children the level of attention they needed at the time to feel comfortable at the event. In Daniel's case, I am sure he was also appropriately educating his sweet little girl as part of her continuing education for her important future role.

I like the dress...but I'm not a fan of these headbands you see on the Swedish ladies.

If you want to wear a tiara wear one...don't wear a girly looking substitute.

i thought the dress was okay, nothing too outstanding but not bad either - i guess i'm just not a fan of Ida Sjöstedt, who seems to have become sofia's go to designer for big events (like the wedding, the nobels and now christenings). the shoes were bad though - something a bit more classy would have been nice, like a simple set of pumps with no platform.

i liked the headband, i thought it was refreshing but sofia seems to favour that middle part which just looks ghastly.

There is a difference in a hairband and in diadems (tiaras). As this was a festive event with a 'dressed up' dresscode and as pearls are perfect for daywear, I thoughg Princess Sofia looked great on her son's baptism.

It was an unfortunate choice for Sofia to wear white at the royal christening, because Victoria and Estelle already wore white only some months ago at Oscar's christening. White doesn't look very good on Sofia, she needs softer colours. The outfit ages Sofia 10 years. The headband doesn't suit her and as some kind of tiara imitation isn't a good choice for this event. But with a different hairstyle the headband would have looked a lot better.

I think princess Sofia was the best dress royal lady today, by far! The dress and the pearl headband were very beautiful and her hairdo was one of the best she has had ever. Didn't like her eye make up, though, too dark in my opinion, especially when combined with white dress.

Yes I am well aware of the difference.


The headband should of been left off, for reasons I already stated.

I thought the white dress, the typical "Sofia hair" and the headband gave her a very Nordic look. You know, Brünnhilde, Sieglinde, Isolde, and that sort of women ;-)
