The dress is meh and boring-matronly, the collar all wrong. I quite like the hairstyle, its good to see Sofia leaving the middle parting/scraggy long hair to Katniss Everdeen.

i thought the dress was a bit boring and adds years on her. i like her make up though, it is always very nicely done. i wonder if she does it herself or she has professional make up artists working for her on a need basis.

Not a fan of the dress, but it did look good on her. At this point of the pregnancy it must be quite difficult to find a nice ever-changing look. And Sofia is already big!

Princess Sofia's Maternity Fashion: October 2015 -

Don't like this look at all, there's a way to dress conservative but not matronly. And one doesn't need to be covered up just because they're pregnant but also, no one wants to see too much either. There's a delicate balance and Sofia didn't hit the mark this time. I also don't like how dark the dress is. Dark hair, dark dress, standing next to a dark background plus clashing with CP tuxedo. If this were a different color I'd like it much better.

Not that big really considering she is some where between 6 and 7 months pregnant depending on when in April she is due (could also be end of March as they sometimes give later dates). Its nice to see a bump finally, even at the Nobels she didn't have much of one.

I keep feeling like she is taking a page from Vic's first pregnancy. Vic was a lot more matronly, and favored that peter pan collar, when pregnant with Estelle. She has shown a lot more style this time.

She can't win, can she. If she shows off a lot of flesh or her clothes are deemed too tight, she's criticised. If she covers herself up, shes criticised.

Why is it that women are held to a higher standard than men when it comes to evening dress? All a man has to do is turn up in the same dinner suit he wears everywhere and he's fine. A woman is expected to wear different outfits to every event and strike just the right balance of elegant and dignified and sexy, plus wear just the right amount of makeup and the right jewellery and have her hair styled just so. Sofia's covered up as much as Carl Philip, but it's deemed too much by some. I loathe these double standards.

My only complaint about her dress is that it's too long. She's able to step on it and in addition to standing on the hem of your dress not being a good look, it seems downright dangerous as she could trip on it.

I agree, her dress is too long and someone will always complain. She looks fine and pregnant.

I don't find the dress matronly. Perhaps the colour could've been more vibrant and the fabric a bit more formal but the style of the gown isn't bad.I would get rid of the collar though, two severe and makes me claustrophobic just looking at it but then that's just me being partial towards more open necklines.

I don't understand how this is matronly either. First of all, the silhouette is a classic sheath style with a bit of fluting at the hem. The fabric is more body-hugging rather than loose, so it's accentuating her. And the color is a rich navy blue, not a dusty shade of something or other, or a print that's gone out of style.

Its the neckline which makes it look matronly IMO. Its old fashioned, and what you would expect on an older woman. Honestly with a big more modern, simpler neckline, the dress would be much better. Its a bit plain, but appropriate, just needs a hem. It seems to be the collar which is putting people off the dress. I know the 'matronly' comments were made about Vic and Kate when they wore similar collars.

I think she got pregnant just after the wedidng and she is due in early April. I do think she is quite big and has put on weight. But it is understandable, as the belly usually starts growing from the fifth month!

Princess Sofia attended the memorial ceremony in the Great Synagogue in Stockhol,I liked the overall look with the coat on,however I'd have preferred if the Duchess had her hair tied back.

I think she looked fine for such a serious occasion, but I didn't like how her hair was curled...

Katniss Everdeen hairstyle does not look good on Sofia

Again outfit is a bit non-descript and boring, nothing special, but still a good choice for a somber memorial event as such.

But the hair??? Not a good style. She was doing so well lately hair wise
