Truthfully, I really don't like Rania's outfit there at all. Anyone know who designed it?

I think this was one of the best cocktail dresses Mette-Marit has worn
ANP Beeldbank
The color was great, and the sleeves and asymmetrical cut of the skirt gave the dress an interesting appearance.
Another recent cocktail dress, worn during the Austrian state visit.
ANP Beeldbank

This is a dress she seems to have gotten a lot of wear out of

This picture is from the Spanish state visit, and IIRC, she's worn it at least a few other times.

Red velvet dress - its a nice red shade, nice length too

The best cocktail dress, and by that I mean short evening dress, I've ever seen on a Princess was the one that Diana wore the night Charles went on tv with Dimbleby. I cant remember who designed it, but it was short and black with the trailing sash and was dubbed the 'Screw you Charles' dress by the media. Her legs went on for days.

See the first picture posted in post #21 up above.

That too is my all time favorite cocktail dress and to me it the epitome of what a cocktail dress should be.

Thanks for that information. Diana wore alot of cocktail dresses. I tried finding Sophie Countess of wessex wearing cocktail dresses and I didn't seem to find her wearing any. She stays with less formal day type dresses or goes with a full length gown usually at night.
