I want to like it, but it's probably the most unflattering thing I've seen on her.

Catherine's evening dress is, for me, a case of liking the fabric and liking the design but not on the same dress. I'm wondering if the fabric would have been better suited to just a jacket or skirt?

I do love the neckline and the 70's vibe, it's very feminine and delicate but would suit, perhaps a lighter fabric in a lighter shade (I can't resist posting this photo as an example of a highneck dress:

The green coat is fabulous!

I am not sure about those fur hats, but she seems to love them, and they are becoming on her.


I like green coat too; love all the fur details. The fur hat does match the rest of the outfit.

As for the evening gown, well I don’t care for it. But- I give her credit for wearing something a bit different. Her hair is styled beautifully though.

Omigosh....... That's a surprise. One of those dresses one has to say: you had to have been there (seen it in person). It does not photo well imo. However, I applaud her taking a risk, going for out-of-the-box. Good effort.

This outfit is amazing. Not only do I love the dress, but the green coat is very regal and beautiful. One of her best coats.

I find the gold dress terrible. I love the print but I find this dress to much. Although its interesting, it's one of her worst looks.

Get rid of the neckline, ridiculous bell sleeves, dust ruffle attached to her knees and destroy the design.... and the dress just might be passable.

I can't believe my eyes in front of this horror frock....I think the fabric would have been nice in a little garment.... not a full long dress ! On the contrary the green coat is to die for !!!! Perfect !

I’m with you. I dont like the Erdem. Too, too much going on. Pleats ruffles etc etc. Simplified a la 30s style and it would have worked.

However, I do like the fact she tried something different. People do complain that she doesnt try anything different. She has so thats ok.

Neither were successful with the clothes tonight but liked the hair and jewels for both.

But for the day, wow do I have a lot to catch up with today:

I love the casual look. Love, love, love. The coat is amazing, I'd steal it. I even love the Canadian boots and the toque.

The green coat is great. I even like the fur trim.

That said I hate the hat. And I find the pants under it just bizarre. If it was too cold out for her to just wear her dress, she should have worn trousers.


The green dress is pretty. Love the color. But its plain. Needs a necklace.


The evening look is hideous. The mustard color is not flattering, and the material makes me think upholstery. The ruffles, the sleeves, the neck, the over all style screams 50s housewife who is hosting a dinner party for her husband's boss. The print just sends it OTT.

Add to it the matronly hair style, and the high fly she was on fashion wise today, just did a nose dive into the ground.

I hate everything about this gown!!! After two successful outfits for today, I wonder what she thought when dressing with this mess.

The mustard color is a no no, the print is horrible and the style is not my cup of tea at all! But I applaude her for trying something new, though she didn't manage to succed it.

Now I'm actually quite curious to see what she has in store for Norway's evening appearance.

Actually I like this print, but it's horrible to see a whole floor length dress is in this pattern. I think it may be better if the skirt is shorter, or the print only uses on the skirt.

A dust ruffle or a bedspread with a skirt attached. Really appalling as a dress. Wonderful earrings and pearl bracelet

I think the dress design and the bold color/print were at war. It was too much. A simpler dress in that fabric or the design in a different fabric might have been prettier. But it was bold and different.

The pattern itself isn't too bad, in small amount. If different color (not mustard) and in say a pencil skirt with a simple blouse, it would be much better.

I was thinking it looked more like my 1970s dressing gown.

I think she looked really great at the outdoor events. I especilly liked her first outfit with that pom pom hat. Her evening dress looked lovely but those ruffles were a little overkill with this kind of print fabric.
