Can't she look at the mirror when she puts a brooch to her sash?

she is sitting and more pregnant, you want to put it where your brooch?

I meant that she should have put the brooch in the middle of the sash. Now it looks bad and doesn't give the gorgeus brooch the place it deserves.

After seeing this dress full length, I have to say the I'm not a fan. The cut outs are not necessary and the top looks cheap. But I will agree that it is better than last year. That dress was just plain awful.

it is unbelievable that to make a reflection on sofia, you have hit hard.

Because yes, I think she has looked in a mirror, and there is nothing worse in she than in others.

I really like this gown on her, the style is nice with the small cap sleeves, and I think that it can be reused again with the waist part taken in for future use. Any gown worn by any royal lady is going to cost for designers see the money walking through the door, so there should be a way to reuse all these gowns that the ladies wear for other formal events. I would like to see her wear this again and maybe shorten the hem a bit so she does not trip on it.

Usually "By Malina" 's outifts are not that expensive in comparison with others...

I think you are being both a little harsh and a little impractical. When faced with a sheer chiffon(?) top Victoria placed her sash underneath it, whereas Sofia moved the brooch down to the top of the satin(?) to anchor it.

Pinning a sash let alone an even heavier brooch to such fragile material merely makes it pull and sag. Sofia took a leaf from her sister-in-law's book and worked outside the box. On the other plus side, her order is perfectly placed.

I love the sheer femininity of this gown with its quite surprising volume in the skirt. Colours such as this focus us on the person and for kudos for wearing such a lovely maternity evening gown for only her second "big night out'. I have to admit I was a little iffy about the chiffon and beaded top, but a full-length look shows how both elegant and dainty the gown looks on her.

I'd call this a win. Far better than last year and she looks far more self-confident. She's learning fast and acquiting herself well.

If you closely look at that pic in the photo LadyFinn linked, it appears that the brooch is pinned (or could, and should, have been, IMO) to the heavier taffeta part of her dress and not to the sheer bit. The sash doesn't seem to be sagging and it therefore appears - to me, anyway - that the pin was not put in the centre of the sash but to the right side. I suppose it could be an optical illusion, but I don't think so.

Really beautiful. She is doing well. Good choice in dress imo given she is pregnant.

Love the dress, very classic odlarenta. Good idea for maternity at this point she will be able to use it as a normal evening dress

I imagine it's a steep learning curve for her, but she's adapting admirably. She looks good, and I think next year she'll look even better.

I really like her overall look! Great dress (looove the neckline), hair and jewels!
Great, that she got the matching earrings with the tiara.

I liked the gown, well not completely. The color is lovely but not for the event. The top part and the cut of the dress is very pretty but the top part embellishments doesn't work with the cutout on the bottom of the dress.
Her tiara is sitting a bit to far back on her head and thats a wrong hairstyle for a tiara IMO.

I agree, the top part is very nicely done. A big improvement with last year, though I assume she could spend more money on the dress this time.

Is the dress black or very dark blue btw?

I think the gown is a very dark midnight/inky blue. It's a lovely dress - I like the top with this embellishments and I like the skirt with that pattern, but somehow not both together!

Prefer it in red! And I prefer it to Victoria's maternity outfit.

I like Sofia's dress but hairstyle/tiara/placing of the tiara is just horrible.
