And they have a dignity and formality that is so different from Hollywood stars and starlets and other celebrities, they carry the weight of history and honor of their respective countries on their shoulders, so to speak, and they do it beautifully, and I guess it's best exemplified in their choice of gala gowns and carriage at those events. Kings and princes, you made the right choices in your lady spouses !

I love mathildes dresses but they seem to make her posture look really bad, especially the slash neck dresses. She looks better in sleeveless dresses.
Queen Rania's dress in #103 is one of my all time favourites!

Maxima's orange dress which Her Majesty posted is from Valentino. She also wore it at her engagment dinner. Personally, I thought the dress looked a lot better the first time around.

Sorry for the bad angle but I think this hair-do is better than the one in Norway.

I never realized that this is the same dress . But now when you said it...
Well, I agree: Her hairstyle looks much better in the 2nd picture. I didn't like this curls on Maxima.
Well, anyway I really like this dress. It looks pretty on her both times she wore it.

I really like this blue dress of Princess Mary .
It's one of my favourites on her!

That the thing I don't understand about this thread. It is not about evening dresses, it is supposed to be about gala gowns. Some in the early pages like those of a young Queen Elizabeth are fabulous. Others, like Mary's blue dress are just evening dresses, nothing special and the occassions were nothing special.

Queen Margrethe's gown for the wedding of the Crown Prince was amazing, as were many of the other, older royals. They make a lot of the young princesses look more than a little underdressed! Mind you, it takes maturity and elan to carry off those sorts of dresses.

I think a lot of the younger royals are a little too intimidated to try and instead tend to look more like someone you would see on a Hollywood red carpet. Couture, but not gala! (As for the 'Jacqui' dress, the less said the better).

I would dearly love to see the return of glamour to gala events. Gowns like those lend themselves to the discreet display of amazing jewelery. Little couture numbers look either swamped by a tiara or diamond necklace, or just plain tacky.

Consider CP Mary's silver/lilac sheath. Desiree's Ruby Parure would have looked ridiculous. Even the embossed silver grey dress she wore with the parure did not do it justice. Now that fabulous red gala gown was another story again.

While we are looking at they young CP's we are missing some truely wonderful gowns on Queens and Consorts. Queens Elizabeth, Margrethe, Silvia and Sonia all have the wow factor. They know how to 'dress' for a 'gala' event.

I don't really see the difference the queen's gowns are simply more elaborate evening gowns.

IMO, this is one of the beautiful gowns worn by Queen Sonja.

It's very figur-accentuated and makes her look slender. It also has a nice décolleté neckline. A good choice, imo.

Maybe in sleeves
but for me Sonja's choice of color and material wins
