How come? I think it's very well tailored...
Underneath the banded layers, there's a perfectly fitted, very tight undergarment with bustier top - the actual dress, so to speak. The bands are sewn on that dress.
It's rather difficult to keep that kind of horizontal banded look fluid when it's cut so close to the body, because it tends to appear somewhat bulky.
But here the fabric is light, the bands are in different pastel shades, and they end up as loose flowing ends in the train at the back - all this helps to make it look light and soft. It's really well made and a good design, I just wish I knew who the designer is.

Thanks for the explanation,Boris
It's not that I'm not persuaded,but there's still something with that dress that doesn't let me consider it No1.Let's just say it could be my No2

I was so surprised today to see Demi Moor wearing the C.Dior "gala dress" Victoria wore.It wasn't strapless,though.It formed an "X" under the neck and she wore it at the Golden Globes

Just for the record:
The 'Golden Nobel dress' is silver-beige and was worn at a 750-year-anniversary of Stockholm event, not for any Nobel-related occasion.

Green Danish wedding dress is the favourite to me.

Does anyone happen to know the designer for this dress?

Hello Poppy

I cant answer the question, but if no-one in this thread is able to help you, then feel free to post a link to a picture of the dress and ask your question in this thread: Royal House of Fashion: Who is the Designer and Help Topic

Oh my, I'd like to know as well who committed the crime and made the 'Frog Dress'... tastes differ, and that one is definitely one of my least favorite dresses of Victoria. A negligée see-through overcoat over a shapeless, strapless frock underneath, and all in the ugliest shade of yellowish green...
I'm eternally grateful that she never wore it again.

Wow! What a great collection you put together for us. THANK YOU so much for taking the time to accumulate and post all of these. Also, the collection of pictures shows how much she has changed over the years, and bounced back so well from eating disorder.

I personally like the two part embroidered black dress with the b/w lace top and duchess satin black skirt. To me, it's a very Spanish look, and a look that she carries off very well. My second favorite is the shaded/graded black dress from last year's Nobel. It shows off her shoulders very nicely.

My personal favorite in recent times isn't shown (unless I missed it). I believe it was the dress she wore to the second Nobel gala night. Champagne colored basically made up horizontal strips of the fabric. It was strapless and she wore it with a great strand of pearls and something in her hair if I recall. She looked fantastic that night!

She really is a lovely young woman but she does need to branch out and try a few new styles. Maybe something columnar and one-shouldered? But I don't think she is really that interested in fashion to the extent that we would like her to be.

I think Victoria looks stunning in this purple gown: everything, from clutch to well-matched jewellery, is just perfect.
I'm also rather fond of this dress: it's relatively simple yet very elegant. I find her choice of jewellery (especially necklace) particularly spot on.
This two-piece black gown is another hit, in my opinion.
