I like the cut of the dress. The colour is also great on Sonja.

Another great outfit:

She really has a great figure for an almost 76 years old woman.

She looks good, although I personally don't like this shade of green at all.

I think she looks excellent! She always looks best when understated.

Lovely simple and flattering gown which shows off the emeralds!
Sash is particularly flattering to her petite figure.

I'm not a huge fan of this outfit. The dress isn't my cup of tea, but seems to suit Sonja. I don't think the coat goes too well with it.

My first thought on the dress is " prison uniform
I like the coat, but not with the dress

For the State Visit from Germany Queen Sonja wore a blue gown she recycled many many times.
She first wore it in 1997, for her 60th birthday!

Queen Sonja 2014

Queen Sonja 1997



Btw... thinking about recycled gowns... she hasn't worn her "yellow nightmare" in quite a while now.

Queen Sonja often recycles some of her very (very) old dresses. Her favourites seem to be:

The shiny blue gown
The light blue gown
The shiny pink gown
The "salmon"
and of course:
The "yellow nightmare"

I love today's gown. Cinderella.
I love the shiny blue gown.
I love the light blue gown. Cinderella take two.
I love the shiny pink gown.
Not a fan of the salmon gown. She looks well, like a salmon. A shrimp. A crab. Seafood. You get the point. Just not a fan of that shade in general.
And that yellow nightmare- I can see why you called it that.
Never seen that -that needs to go as far back in the closet as possible.
And I thought Maxima looked like Big Bird the other day. Wrong. This is the ultimate Big Bird outfit. This is Big Bird on steroids.
Didn't she also used to repeat a horrible gown that was yellow, and had lace, and looked like a wedding cake?
That's what I thought you meant at first when you said yellow nightmare . Then I saw the real thing.
Overall though, I love her style. Very regal.
I loved what she wore at MM wedding. Does she also have a sparkly lavender/lilac gown? I seem to remember one. She looked amazing.

I don't know why... but personally I always quite liked the salmon dress.

You probably mean this one:
http://www.kongehuset.no/aim/kongehu...29a96bedac.jpg

The Queen owns several yellow gowns.
The yellow lace gown
The yellow "nightmare"
An old yellow dress (she didn't recycle since a very long time)
Another yellow lace dress
A rather new yellow dress

At this blog you can find an entry about Queen Sonja - the yellow queen
