This gown is such a perfect color and cut for her. The waist cinches in a little high and the skirt is just full enough. Love her hair, tiara and makeup

Even though I'm sick of lacy-clothes, its good to see this evening gown recycled again. It has lovely frosty blue color that goes well with her eyes. Her hair were also very lovely styled and looked pretty with that restyled tiara. I didn't quite like the fit around her belly but I guess she's still loosing some of the pregnancy weight.

But removing the emeralds makes it so bland...

This gown is one of her best.
Her tiara isn't as bland as CP Mary's wedding tiara

I love the cut and style of her gown too

With the emeralds, no. Without it, hmmm...

I mean, Mary's wedding tiara is small and with tiny diamonds, but it does have some old-styled designs.

I'm just not feeling the 'palm leaf' design of Sofia's? It just feels really modern and looks glaring white in most pictures (I'm assuming that's due to the way the tiara is made, not an expert). Everyone's got their cup of tea I guess.

I just hope the Danes and the Swedes give Isabella, Josephine and Estelle some decent 18th birthday tiaras, no barbwire please.

The Bernadottes should buy back Queen Louise's tiara from the eventual heirs of Princess Desirée and give it to Estelle as a starter tiara.

I've read about the rumors that the swedish court has bought Estelle Bernadottes tiara for princess Estelle. Do you think there's any truth to this? Trond Norén Isaksen: Royal jewels: Queen Sophia’s alleged coronation tiara (Estelle Bernadotte’s tiara)

I hope so but seems strange for that a substantial tiara going through two so well known jewelry collections without being used

For me, this is one of the best evening appearances from Sofia recently, a decent dress that suits her and side-parting hairstyle.
Ok the tiara is not on the level of the other SRF tiaras and it still looks skimpy but better than with the emaralds.

Its classic style but with this horrible hairstyle this whole look looks like something very outdated from the 90s.

I absolutely love her coat. Nice look for her.

But the hairdo doesn't suit her at all.

I missed her gown the other evening. The color was beautiful on her. And the overall style one of her best evening looks. But too much lace IMO.

I for one like the tiara without the emeralds. I am not fond of the tiara either way, but better this way. The emeralds remind me of spearmint candies. Without though, looks like a nice wedding tiara found in any store (for normal off the street bride I mean).

Princess Sofia at her youngest son's christening today, December 1 - that colourful traditional choice is a wonderful idea in my eyes:

I just love the traditional outfit that Princess Sofia wore, she is such a very beautiful lady and the pictures show how well she and Queen Silva have become, that is so wonderful. I see so much change in her from the time she met and married Carl Philip to this day.........amazing young lady and very smart.

Always love to see traditional outfit! The only thing I would complain is her hair, I prefer a neater look.

I was completely wowed by this regional, family-made version of traditional dress for an occasion like this.

That's saying a lot, as my opinion of this tradition of the ladies going traditional dress while the men dress in in suits is that it seems such an affectation, JMO.

But I can understand her wanting to look traditional for her child's christening. Good for her.

The traditional dress is really beautiful! I know these dresses are so comfortable to wear and warm, too, so it's an excellent choice for a winter christening. Seeing this makes me wish we would see more traditional costumes in the independece day ball in Finland this year. And have to add, that blue lace dress she used again is one of my favourite dresses on her, glad too see it again!

I have to say at first I was like "what in the world is she wearing", but then after I read that it's the traditional dress for Gabriel's dukedom and her home, I realized how meaningful it was. Good play by Sofia today. And on a personal note, I love the way CP is with this boys. You can see the love he has for his family, written all over his face.
