Victoria Chan seems to be one of her top designers. She has designed many of Sofia's more formal looks.

The dress for,the wedding in Spain is not flattering. She is a busty young woman and most.likely nursing which generally increases,the bust size. This dress just accentuates things and does nothing for her. The print is way too big fir her also

Not a fan of that at all. Doesn't do anything for her. Except make her look a lot heavier than she is.

Very unflattering and granny style. The MIL looks much more stylish at the age of 73.

I think the chan dress needed a v neck that neckline just made her chest appear bigger.

I think a thin belt to match one of the colors of the dress would have been a nice finish to the dress. I also think there might be a bit of baby weight that still needs to come off as she is a petite lady. In all Sofia is really working on a great style of clothing that is acceptable to being married to a royal prince. Both she, Carl and Queen Silva look very nice and happy together.

The print itself reminds me of a flight attendant's shirt...

The shape of the dress is fine, but too loosely fitted, maybe she's still very conscious about her post-baby weight?

Also not a fan of the seam line on the waist, seems sloppy

A most unattractive style for her. How about something like a sheath with no waistline instead. The gathers at the waist make her look so big. If she wants a waistline, then a belt would have helped

Its not a good look. Length awkward, the print is meh on her

We have seen her in more tailored looks since the baby. There is definitely more flattering ways to hide baby weight if that is the reason. We have seen them on her.

When this dress makes even slim model look heavy/bigger around her hips and waist, then its definitely not very flattering style on any woman who have hips and boobs and don't want to look bigger than she actually is! Perhaps thin belt and v-neck could have made this style look more flattering.
On another note I'm glad Sofia has given up on her usual central parting. Side part hairstyles look so much better on her.

I love the color and general style of the dress but I don't like that neckline on her. It would be more flattering to be a little more open.

Sophia's gown is gorgeous and really suits her. However, the Halo Snowflake tiara looks better with it than the emerald incarnation for her last official photo. Her hair and makeup are outstanding.

Muriel I think they are calling Sophia's tiara the 'halo snowflake'.

I am a big fan of the removal of the emeralds. I really like the tiara this way.

Well the way it sits on her head like the Halo does with her hair in that style there is no dark behind the tiara and the dreaded pinecones spread out and look like snowflakes, hence the Halo Snowflake. Whatever it's called, it's got to be better than "That Emerald Thing that Sophia has".

I prefer the tiara with this base, much better than the one used at her wedding.
But removing the emeralds makes it so bland...

This gown is one of her best.
