horrible. that dress looks ugly and cheap. the fit is also most poor.
one of the worst outfits of sofia in (at least) this current year - i'd be inclined to put it in her worst ever, honestly.

I quite like Sofia's dress but the pattern does appear to be busy at a first glance. I'm not a fan of her hat though, it's too big and awkward for me.

The hat, its design is okay to me, the real problem is the placement. It is so big and Sofia places it on her forehead It covers her face! Slightly backward position may look better.

I thought the very same thing when I first saw the picture of her in that hat, it is to big for the shape of her face and put on to much to one side. I actually like the hat as I am a hat lady and have many hats........over all the dress is nice on her, just place the hat at a different angle or a smaller wide brim hate would be nice. At least she is trying hats now.......which is a good thing.

I like her dress! She and Madeleine are wearing almost matching shoes.

Now this is a much better maternity dress!
And yes, she and Madeleine have very similar shoes. I guess they know from earlier years that high heals and this lawn is a bad match :)

This dress is lovely! Much better than the earlier choice. I like when she pulls her hair back, too.

Her husband, OTOH, needs to either get a haircut or find a style that doesn't involve so much product. The top of his head is gleaming!

Except for the hat, her two outfits were fine. Her hair was nicely styled but the wedges can be hard to walk in when pregnant.

OK, I wasn't really sold on the dress but there was nothing dreadful, ill fitting or ugly about it. Now the hat, that was a work of art that needed to be either smaller or set back slightly from where she placed it. That way we would have easily seen her face.

Sofia really pulled out the stops for the concert and she looked great. Hair, dress, shoes, all pretty and practical.

Her day dress was lovely color. But the pattern was too busy on her pregnant frame. Be good post pregnant.

The host was a mess. It would be great if it was smaller, too big on her head, and set right. Kind of Hephburn feeling. But even if smaller, doesn't suit dress, mismatch in style.

The concert she looked great Fit and great style. I love the print.

You have echoed my thoughts about the Hat, which clearly is not well placed on the Princess Sophia's head. I do wonder whether such people put on their own hats or whether a well meaning but clearly incompetent hair dresser sets it on what is definitely not the right spot. Ideas anyone?

Sofias both outfits were pretty. The only downside in the morning outfit was her hat, it wasn't pretty and she didn't wear it well.

I agree that both of her dresses are pretty. But lets face it. Her hat was a disaster.

The outfit is stunning! I don't agree that the dress and hat aren't a good match, I think they make up a perfect combination and outfit. When I first saw the hat I thought it was a masterpiece, very sculptural. The only thing is that it could have been placed different, further back or at different angle, I don't know.

Her dress is fine, but I think the hat is too big for her frame. The concert dress and the shoes are pretty much perfect for the occasion and place, well done!

I quite agree with you about the dress and hat, that hat is a work of art, I tried to make a hat once, the result nobody will ever see thank goodness. I just think that it is placed wrong on her head, a different angle as you say would be better. It is very nice to see her trying different things in dressing and hats now......she is a beautiful young lady with those gorgeous blue eyes, she is finding her way and that takes time and some mistakes as we all do in life, I call it 2nd chances and she gets that.
