Princess Mette-Marit

Princess Mette-Marit looks so good in that vibrant pink blazer. It really makes her seem both elegant and fashion-forward. Her blonde hair and beige like skin are complimented by the strong shade of pink. That is why I chose it as my favorite photo

For me no question, picture A is an epic one both for the style of the picture, the story that's behind it and the fact that it captures the mood of the occasion very well...
