1) MABEL- This is scary because she's usually hideous and over-the-top.

2) METTE-MARIT- She has her moments...

3) VICTORIA- Some people think the color is too dark but it's almost Fall.

4) MIRIAM- Simple, black, and flattering.

Poor SOPHIE. She looked like she was wearing a sundress and the cornflower blue shawl did not match the turquoise blue in her gown.

I'm sorry but MAXIMA had too much going on. Her necklace and bracelet set are obviously real (and very expensive) but the color of the dress was too bold. I know she figured the purple lace on the ruffle of her hot-pink gown would bring out the amethyst in her set but it didn't work for me.

It pains me to say it because LETIZIA's my favorite, but I have to say she's looked better. I didn't like the top of the dress or the way it fit and her the texture of her hair seems different after having her second child. I also noticed she lines the bottom of her of her eyes with green eyeliner...that's a little too 80's.

I agree to Regina. I would have given Máxima the #1 in 'general appearance', because she did look sexy and captivating, but I hated the ruffles and I am not really keen on that shade of pink, too bubblegumish.

1. Maxima (incredible beautiful)
2. Mette Marit (not always the best, but today I like a lot)
3. Aimee (so pregnant and so pretty)
4. Letizia (she is far away from the beauty in Mary and Fred pre wedding dinner - so thin now- but even, I like the dress a lot)
If I help only a person to have hope, I will not live for nothing.
Favourite royal: Maxima

For me, the most outstanding appearances were made by Mathilde and Maxima. I am fascinated how both ladies are able to include their personalities in the way they dress and their overall appearance: Maxima showing her vibrancy and Mathilde her true elegance. Well done

I liked the dress of Princess Letizia best, I would love to wear that myself but Maxima and Mathilde impressed me more.

1- Maxima. The colour of her dress was beautiful. Not many could carry it off, but she has the right 'look' and personality for it! I also loved her necklace and hair.

2-Mette Marit. I liked the design and colour, (but not such a fan of the black bow!)

3-Letizia. I liked her dress a lot, particularly the bottom half. It was very pretty.

I also liked Victoria's dress, but I personally found the colour a bit boring on her.

I'd like to point out that Mathilde's BEAUTIFUL and INCREDIBLY WELL FITTING dress, was made IMHO of a very similar fabric and identical shade of orange than the one Máxima wore recently in Norway, for Queen Sonja's 70th birthday:
