I'll put Maxima first and then Mary. Both wore elegant outfits, but I prefer Maxima's red over Mary's taupe.

I love this dress! The shape and color are perfect for Victoria's figure and complexion. I have never seen her look happier.

I love the cut and color. The big smile on her face definitely completed the outfit.

I would have to say it is a tie between Mary and Victoria. I still think Mary looked lovely on her engagement announcement day but the gorgeous color and cut of Victoria's dress is lovely. Following closely behind them in my opinion is Maxima. I love the color she wore and she is so beautiful.

Mathilde had the worst. I can't believe after wearing that she would become one of my favorite princesses as far as style.

Letizia looked nice but it looked like something she would have worn on air while reporting the news.

Mette-Marit was okay. A little drab considering her personality. I don't think her outfit reflected her at all. It appears to me that someone not knowing her very well helped her with the outfit choice. But I can see why the ultra-conservative look was chosen based on her past. I'm sure the royal family wanted to be sure she was seen as serious.

Actually that's what I think, too.

Btw, for the official engagement photo MM wore a different dress:

For me it's definately a choice between Maxima Mary and Victoria! Maxima looked stunning and colourful. Mary looks good in more tonal shades such as beiges, browns and taupes with a slight pattern and Victoria looks good in block colours with a simple design. Victoria's enagement outfit was stunning for its simplicity and with the diamond broach.

It seems that if you want to look regal and royal, a plain dress with a broach does the trick (at least for the ladies!).

I am in absolute agreement. Surprisingly I don't actually think that was the look they were going for.

I chose Mary and Elizabeth for the same reason you stated.

However, Queen Margrethe and Maxima looked so happy and radiated such joy that it totally eclipsed everyother consideration.

Crown Princess Victoria looked every inch the princess during the interview with the press. I hope she follows a similar regal vein with her wedding gown!

I have to say that, although she was so happy then, both the red and pink suits (and her hair) was horrible - and a bit too short. I did like that she wore red though, as that is what Chinese ladies traditionally wear on their engagement day. I don't mid her outfit for the official photo, although I'm not wild about, I just like the colour:

Definitely Mary's one, I love that warm beige outfit, and that sofisticated detail of double chocolate brown belt.

there's not many dresses that i don't particularly like. perhaps we just need to take into account that times change and perhaps a dress which was great some years ago now looks aged and out of fashion.

i'd say letizia, mary, victoria and maxima did very well. i loved letizia's suit, great choice IMO, very clean and simple. it had so many imitations in spain. everyone was in love with the "letizia neckline". maxima's dress was so classic and well-made. you can tell it was made to suit HER and just her for such a big day. same applies to victoria, lovely colour and clean and simple. mary's dress and coat were both perfect, including her valentino shoes.

princess elizabeth looked great. even with so much time in between she still looks so stylish!

i'm not sure who was the responsible for the make up of salma bennani. she looks like she was taken out of a geisha film.
