I just love that Sofia wore traditional folk dress for the christening, that was unexpected! Although I thought the same as princess gertrude at first - before I watched more of the livestream and realised I was being ignorant when it comes to Swedish traditional costume. Would've been nice to see someone else joining Sofia so she didn't look like such an odd one out, but I'm glad that she wore the traditional dress.

The traditional folk dress would have been a good choice on a visit to Dalarna, but an odd choice to a christening. And Sofia's hair was a big mess.
The press always writes that Sofia is from Dalarna, but she lived there only about 11-12 years, she lived with her parents in Täby close to Stockholm, moved to Älvdalen in Dalarna in 1991 and moved to Stockholm when she was eighteen.

Not uncommon. Coming from a kid who moved around a lot growing up, often when asked where you grew up, or home town, you mention the city where you spent the majority of your childhood. I say western Canada as honestly we never lived anywhere that long. 12 years of her childhood, which basically is all of her education, is more then substantial part of her childhood. Its fair to say she grew up there even if she wasn't born there.

I agree, while the traditional costume is a nice tribute, perhaps not for the event. And her hair looked messy under the hat.

I love that Sofia wore a traditional dress. What a lovely nod to her heritage and the heritage of her sons.

I like the traditional dress but not for this event. Its an odd choice to stick out among guests when everything is supposed to be about baby Gabriel.

Is it traditional to wear national dress at a Christening in Sweden or an old royal one?

No it's not a tradition but the regional dresses can be worn at black & white tie events since it traditionally was your best dress. The dress itself can be worn at all occasions but it gets adapted as the occasions change for example for funerals, weddings etc...

The fabric is beautiful, but the design is not good. Especially the top part is boring (..)

A beatiful dress with great fit and a flattering waistline, plus a pretty tiara. The only thing missing is colour. I would prefer the dress in, let's say, violet like queen Silvia's. A lovely look overall!

Wow she really looks lovely. The design is beautiful, one of her best evening looks I have seen.

I do agree, a brighter color may have looked better, just because the dress is so simple.

She looks lovely, a good color for her, not a fan of the design really...but the tiara looks really nice with pearls (may we never seen the emeralds on it again!).

http://www2.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/N...9fEJr9rAAl.jpg I like this dress on Sofia, it has a nice flow. But compared to Madeleine's similar dress, this one is boring and the design doesn't hold up to the high standard of the night.

I think Sofias dress would have looked much better in a brighter colour.

I think she looks absolutely beautiful. The details on the dress are very soft but elegant.
