Sophie of Wessex looked perfect for the occasion, not over or underdressed. She dressed appropriately for her age and doesn't seem to feel like she has wear something a woman in her 20s would wear.

I gave to say, I liked GD Maria-Theresia's dress, but the I only got the hang of it after seeing her picture couple of times. That tiara she is wearing steals all the attention form the dress.

  • Queen Silvia of Sweden: This is how you say "I may be the mother of the bride, but I am still the queen". Royal, regal, gorgeous! And did you see the size of those jewels?!
  • Queen Sofia of Spain: the silhouette, draping and lace really flatter her. I even kind of like the color. The Mellerio shell tiara seems to be one of her favorite but I wish she had worn a bigger tiara than her daughter! The other queens all pulled out some of their bigger sparklers.
  • Queen Margrethe of Denmark: It takes a special woman to wear such a unique, saturated color and Margrethe is it. One of her best Gala looks.
  • Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands: Am I one of the only people who actually likes this? The sparkly fabric is pretty, the hem detail is nice, and the puffy neckline balances her hair. The ruby parure tiara also balances her hair.
  • Queen Sonja of Norway: I've always liked this dress. The coral color looks great on her and the pleated fabric is so unique. The emerald tiara is probably her grandest and prettiest so I'm not sorry she wore them. At least it wasn't the modern wonder woman monstrosity.
  • Queen Rania of Jordan: messy messy. Why is the queen who is reliably glamourous looking so ugh?
  • Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxembourg: Something about this dress is making her look larger than she is. It should work and I can't figure out what doesn't. Maybe it's the shrug. She's worn that tiara much better but in the live feed it sparkled beautifully. I wonder how much it weighs!
  • Princess Madeleine of Sweden: Gorgeous. Great color, great fit, great silhouette, just perfect. I wonder if she coordinated the dress with the color of the sash (she wore) for the order of the Seraphim because it goes so well. I do wish she hadn't worn the Connaught tiara so tight (in a tight circlet). I've seen Queen Silvia wear it more loosely and it was really pretty.
  • Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway: Her best look in ages. Gorg
  • Sophie, Countess of Wessex: blah color, good neckline, the silver detail didn't sparkle like I was hoping it would.
  • Ms. Charlene Wittstock (guest of Prince Albert of Monaco): Didn't she this the night before? Dull and too similar.
  • Crown Princess Mary of Denmark: Neckline- weird. Asymmetry without reason. It looked like an inexperienced sewer made a goof.
  • Letizia, Princess of Asturias: Letizia is naturally thin but this made her look frail. The color was bad on her skin. Jewel tones are your friends, Letizia. Don't go to a gala without them!
  • Princess Máxima of the Netherlands: take one crinoline from the bottom on the skirt and I will probably like it.
  • Crown Princess Mathilde, the Duchess of Brabant: Again, one of her better looks. She always looks phenomenal in soft rose tones. Flatters her body too.
  • Princess Märtha-Louise of Norway: She should wear the amethyst tiara more! Not loving the wrinkled-tissue-paper effect on her chest.
  • Princess Rym of Jordan: good color but not body flattering.
  • Infanta Elena of Spain: This outfit says "I'm a princess of Spain, people". I like it.
  • Infanta Cristina of Spain, Duchess of Palma de Mallorca: not loving it, not the most flattering?
  • Other: Princess Claire looked amazing in her red dress.

,Now that I have had time to view all the still photos in Point de Vue and Paris Match I have changed my opinion..Princesses Mette-Marit, Mary Mathilde, Tatiana Blatnik and Letizia all looked stunning, in addition to Princess Claire and Charlene W.!

Perhaps I'm not the first to say this but I'll repeat it...I thought that Charlene Wittstock looked lovely but in this shot from Getty Images she doesn't look happy.

Nah...I think she just looks deep in thought about something, really.
Or maybe she's unhappy she can flaunt her ring around with the other royals yet.

Thank you for the link . I really liked what Sophie and Charlene had on. Not too flashy.

Madeline's dress was in a lovely shade of blue, but the skirt ruined it for me. Maxima's gown reminded me of 'The Little Mermaid', though the color (from what I could see) was quite lovely.
