i'll have to go for the rather understated bournevilleana gown, the turquoise gown of her engagement dinner, the extremely colourful dress she wore in luxembourg (although perhaps i would like to see it again before judging) and this beautiful silver one.

(however, these are only few and doesn't mean i don't love her alexander mcqueen purple dress or the carolina herrera she wore in japan... to mention a few)

Her gowns are all lovely. She looks especially beautiful in turquoise, dark blue, purple and red. The turquoise gown is my favorite, although, I really like the dark blue gown.

I agree with the other posters. The Nobel Prize Gala gown worn in 2008 is the best of them all. She looked perfect in it.

My second and third choices are the Nobel bright purple and the embroidered red gown.

many thanks for these wonderful pictures and choices carlota...the princess looked very glamorous in many of these wonderful gowns...I'd vote for the nobel prize gala 2008 gown followed by the two part, black dress embroidered in picture number 9.

Great work, putting together this collection – thank you!
Unfortunately, most gowns of Princess Victoria lack both sophistication and a designer’s craftsmanship – many are simply not very well made. Others, especially older ones, are less than flattering, and some just don’t have the inner lining and construction needed for an evening dress to photograph well.
The ‘Edwardian’ style of embroidered corsage top and voluminous skirt with train suits her, but has been repeated eternally by her favorite designer in recent years, Lasse Wallin –with varying success.
For me, the choice is easy as well. The one dress that stands out, fashionable and regal at the same time, executed with expertise and very flattering, is indeed the last one she wore, the Nobel Prize Palace gala gown 2008.
It shows how great CP Victoria can really look.

My favourite is No10,the green dress.It reminds me of the ancient Greek style and the quality of its materials is so much better than the others,which makes it wonderful.I would love to see it in other colours as well

This muted green one is actually # 2 on my 'Best of' list!
With a very large gap following afterwards.

Boris,I respect everything you say.You seem really experienced in fashion.That's why I'm gonna ask you the following question:if you have a closer look at the Nobel prize gala 2008 dress,don't you think that it's not that well tailored?Because I have the impression that it isn't.

Carlota! What an impressive array of gowns--I know that took an incredible amount of time and I thank you for sharing!
I like these:
http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...0&d=1071094653 this one reminds me of Mary's blue gown a little bit (the one she just wore for the New Year's Gala)

I like this one because the fabric looks nice:

This one is lovely as well: http://lottaskungligamode.blogg.se/i...n_23350503.jpg

But, I LOVE This one:
http://www.ppe-agency.com/500px/May2007/07051152.jpg


But, this is also a favorite because it veers from her usual style:

Great collection, carlota!
This dress (her most recent one) is my favourite! I loved her whole look that night! Hair, dress, jewels!
