I've been waiting forward to this poll. Great selection of pictures!
Have to say though that the religious wedding disappointed me somewhat fashion-wise; there were some hits, but mostly misses.
The good (in my opinion):
- Queen Silvia of Sweden
(clean, elegant look).
- The Countess of Wessex
(the quirky print works for me).
- Lalla Salma of Morocco
(love the vibrant colour and the matching jewellery).
- Princess Tessy of Luxembourg
(it's a very bland look but there is something about it that I like. A successful attempt at minimalism).
- Princess Maxima
(this outfit is atrocious. Especially the hat. And yet somehow Maxima makes it work. For sheer individuality of it, it's in my "best" list).
One lady not mentioned in the poll is Princess Zeina
who looked really lovely.
I also thought the de Lannoy ladies were very well dressed, especially Countess Alice de Lannoy
The OK (in my opinion)
- Princess Letizia of Spain
(a lot of people loved this ensemble, but to me it's just pretty average. Unmemorable is probably the word I'm looking for).
- Princess Mary of Denmark
(this would have definitely been in my "best" list, had it not been for the horrible hat).
- Princess Martha Louise of Norway
(honestly, it doesn't get any more minimalistic than that. Even the hat and glittery shoes/clutch don't salvage the look).
- Queen Margrethe of Denmark
(love purple, love Queen Margrethe, love the brooch. And yet something is amiss).
- Princess Sibilla of Luxembourg
(how can vibrant red look so dull?!)
- Princess Claire of Belgium
(OK. Not bad. Not good. Just OK).
- Princess Caroline of Monaco
(honestly, this isn't in my "Bad" list because I don't have the heart to list one of the most elegant woman of our times there).
- Princess Margaretha of Liechtenstein
(I actually rather like this look and would have loved it had it not been for the shawl thing).
The bad (in my opinion):
- Crown Princess Victoria
(it pains me to put Vicky in this category but I have to: a horrible fit, plus I have a thing for coats that are longer than the dress).
- Crown Princess Mette-Marit
(can't figure out what I dislike more - the lace coat or the hair).
- Queen Sonja
(too much white, especially stockings-wise, and a horrible fit).
- Queen Beatrix
(now, I know the Queen has her own very unique style so I wouldn't have minded the outfit had it not been the wallpaper print on it).
- Crown Princess Mathilde
(the craftsmanship on this outfit is atrocious. And I hate the hat).
- Princess Astrid
(another wallpaper print and a UFO hat)
- Archduchess Marie-Astrid
(mismatched and boring)
- Grand Duchess Maria Teresa
(I love Maria Teresa and I love the colour of the outfit. But the design is horribly unflattering and I can't forgive the fake brooch).
- Queen Paola
(the HAT! My grandfather had a hat like that back from his days of service in the Soviet Army. He looked dashing in it. Queen Paola did not).
- Countess Diana
(the red and the print of the dress clash too much for my taste.
