Letizia was a real Princess, although her extreme thinness looks really bad on her face!

I forgot to add Mathilde to my best dressed list! This photo really shows how well the dress fits her.

First Place: Mathilde (stunning, stunning, stunning!!!)
[DNF] Fotoarchief Denieuwsfoto

Second Place: Princess Aime [DNF] Fotoarchief Denieuwsfoto she is just so radiant. She looks amazing, and I love that coppery brown gown
Third Place: Maxima--normally, she would be my top pic, but Mathilde really stole the show! [DNF] Fotoarchief Denieuwsfoto

Even though no one asked,
Worst Dresssed:
A tie:
Queen Beatrix (I hate to do it, but it must be done) Something went wrong here. [DNF] Fotoarchief Denieuwsfoto

and Sophie, Countess of Wessex. Bless her heart its hard to be pregnant-but, very nice shoes. [DNF] Fotoarchief Denieuwsfoto

Best photos of the night, IMHO, [DNF] Fotoarchief Denieuwsfoto I just love Seeing Maxima with the children and [DNF] Fotoarchief Denieuwsfoto the whole family, looking perfect!

My favorite one by far must be the lovely dress, or wrap, whatever it is technically, worn by the princess from Jordan. I am not familiar with this person, but she caught my eye the most with her simply exquisite attire.

For #2 and #3, I suppose I must go with:
2. Mathilde
3. CP Victoria (I like the brown color and fit on her for some reason, surprisingly nice for me)

My top three are Mathilde, Maxima and Letizia. Every time I look at the pictures I end up changing the order of these three ladies. Very well done! Prince Felipe is looking pretty hot, too!

Oh dear, I can't imagine what she was thinking.
Better luck next time.

Best Dressed

1. Aimée (10 out of 10 - she knows how to pull a maternity wear)
2. Mathilde (Mathilde surprised me - in a positive way, during the last couple of Royal gatherings - you expect her to wear something eternally classical and she turns out to be the boldest. Nevertheless, wonderful look!)
3. Letizia (a very nice and elegant dress, wtih bold earings and smart purse. And a husband besides, who looks as though he can't believe his luck)
4. Mette-Marit (beautiful, pretty and radiant are my words for Mette-Marit. Haakon must be extremely proud, with two gorgeous Ladies by his side)
5. Máxima (I admit the dress might terrify me if anyone else were wearing it, but Maxima was super-radiant. No wonder Willelm-Alexander looks as though he might kissed the land his darling wife walked on )
6. Victoria (Usually I prefer to see Victoria is lighter colours, but this was certainly an exception - she looked brilliant)
7. Mabel (I generally have nothing against the Mabel style - it's her trademark, and I love individual styles, but Mabel looked especially nice during this event)

Best dressed for me would have to be Mathilde, Letizia and Victoria. All three ladies looked fabulous in their differing styles.

If the poll were for best smile or most radiant Maxima would be a winner without a doubt. Her dress, imo, was awful, the neon pink colour was terrifying and it did nothing for her figure. It just emphasised her hips and stomach making her look larger than she is, the same goes for Infanta Cristina.

I am the only one to vote for Sarvath. The Spanish doñas lead by a landslide.

My Top 5:
1. Maxima (the gown fits thousand per cent to her)
2. Laurentien (she looks very sporty)
3. Aimee and Sophie (aren't pregnant women pretty?)
4. Marilene (she looks very elegant)
5. Victoria (she looks good, whatever she wears)

I believe that some female person at this party had an agreement what who wears. Or what do you think?

I thought Laurentin looked the best I have ever seen she usually looks a bit odd. Victoria lovely Maxima terrific Sophie Wessex I thought looked better than she had for a while at least she didn't look ten years older as I think she has done lately. I have to say I am a great fan of hers. Letizia I just don't know I have tired really had to like her but I just think she's a bit too thin and lots like she is going to blow over but I don't want to start that whole drama so I will leave it there.

I thought Maxima's stood out in that pink/fuschi dress, might of not fitted well nor did her any good but color on her was beautiful & loved all the layers. Another nice dress was Mabel, & yes I say Mabel who has the weirdest style. Liked the dress, color, cut and the band of embroidery. Others were nice, some could have done better. Intersting poll though.

1. Mathilde - Wow! I didn't know she can be so elegant! She really made a great choice! She looked stunning.

2. Maxima - this is a great color for her. She really looked fantastic. This necklace made a perfect look.

3. Aimee - that's one of the best maternity dresses I've seen!

Oh my, it is very hard to pick only one!

Mathilde, in my opinion is a very stylish princess and here she is absolutely gorgeous! Same goes for Victoria, that brown grown is excellent!

But suprisingly enough, I voted for Aimee. I never see much of her, but when I do, she looks absolutely stunning! I think I am in love with that dress, can't get enough of it...
