Hazel eyes tend to be brown around the iris and green around the rim(mine are hazel) So yes depending on what your wearing they may look more brown or more green.
I think Maxima looks better when she dosen't try to look so pulled together I don't care for alot of her daywear(I love her evening gowns though and how she looks then and her casual wear too) some of the daywear you see in this thread for her is quite good-not so boxy looking.
I love how Mett-Marit keeps he 'working' clothes a little on the casual side.
I think Mary has quite a unique style-alot of prints for example and wears pant alot too.I think she looks contrained too much when she wears a suit though.Letizia is always chic no matter what she wears.Madeleine is a true beauty.

You are right. Quite impressive, those pics of december 1997!


I wonder if Máxima still wears hairclips...

I think Rania had the most dramatic transformation. With most of the others, it was mostly losing weight, getting better clothes, and doing something about their hair and makeup. For instance, Mary looks the same, yet different. She's lost weight and gotten better style. She doesn't look that much like a twenty-something college student anymore. Rania looks very different, but then you have to remember that she was very young when she got married and became queen, so she still may have matured a little bit, also lost weight, fixed her hair, and maybe had a little surgery.

Haakon and Mette Marit:

2. ImageShack - Hosting :: haakonmetteoslo17ukp0bn.jpg
I think Mette-Marit does something with her hair. It used to be darker, and it is VERY blonde now, the color of Marius' hair. I thought he got that from her, but now I'm not so sure.

But other than that and better makeup and style, she's not that different. She was always very pretty.

I think aside from her nose job Rania doesn't really look any different. Her face still looks the same, the photos from her school in Kuwait demonstrate that the most.

So, was Mette Marit's hair like a honey blond or was she a brunette?

It's totally my thoughts,and I could not say it better.

For me Mary is exactly the same,unless she lost some weight,i mean no plastic surergy on there,and the pictures posted above are from her at Sydeny Olympics looking tired under sun with nomakeup and no fashion clothes,for me she was still looking ok .

As for Rania of course it's the most dramatic change around here,it's not only the nose job (at least,some of her last pictures it was abvious she had injections on her upper lip,and her forhead and around eyes,look very botoxed, you can see that from her expressions,no expressions actually!) ,but also the hair,weight,clothes,and skin bleaching...somebody talked about skin bleaching of princess Mary,I find that ridiculous,she's european originally,she doesn't need that,she was tanned under australian sun,and now in the north cold weather,she is back to her original complexion,you ca see that on her sleeves and neck,but for queen rania,it's more obvious from her previous photos,she had olive skin before when she was a kid,teen and even a princess,and the culte of skin bleaching is more popular in middle east,asia and africa,never for europeeans,who tend to tan instead bleaching,like princess Madeleine,queen silvia and duchess of luxembourg!

Personally I think she looks overweight in those photos with stringy greasy hair and poor skin. I don't see how anyone can class that as "ok". Those photos were not taken at the Olympics but at the cinema, a year plus later.

I think I rememeber the photos you are refering to and somebody pointed out
it simply looked like she was wearing alot of lipliner. This seemed to be the case especially as the day before and the following day her lips had seemed the same.

If that was the case she wouldn't be laughing and smiling in the recent photos at the Children's Museum. Yet she is clearly doing both.

Mary's skin colour dropped several shades in the space of a few months. She went from having a very natural tan and in some cases not so natural, probably due to too much bronzer, to a deathly pale colour. Considering the large number of holidays she took, I find it hard to believe that the Danish climate was the only explanation for her dramatic skin colour change.

The bleaching trend is not just reserved for non-White socieities,. There was an interesting article recently about the rise in skin-bleaching creams in the West as over recent years the very pale look as seen on actresses like Nicole Kidman is becoming inreasinlgy popular. I actually have a colleague who started using a cream containing a bleaching ingredient because she wanted the "porcelain" look.

I personally do not think she looks overweight in those photos, i think she looks healthy. And also, bear in mind she was not going out anywhere classy, she was just going to the movies with her friends.

^well I don't agree with all your sentences,but we agree at least that Rania lost lot of weight,had plastic surergy at least on nose (i believe that botox is not eternal,it stays 3 to 6months depending of the intensity of the product ,and Rania looks in many pictures with no expressions,so i believe she had sometimes botox injections,plus i read an article about a famous plastic surgeon(i will look for his exact name) and he quoted Queen Rania and one of his famous clients)who uses often his injections..As for Mary,youself you talk only about weight,so there's no plastic surergy,maybe both got or not a skin bleaching(imo Rania did and not Mary)but between A Queen Rania who lost dramatically weight and had obviously at least one plastic suregy and A Princess Mary who lost only weight,so the most dramatic change,is Rania's one not Mary's...

Ps:Olympics or cinema,she's not wearing fashion clothes and doesn't put makeup and ok"greassy" hair,but she's exactly the same,i am not talking about fashions,but about features,when you see that pictures,you can say very easy that is Mary,inlike Rania,where lot of people and her fans don't want to believe that it was her,some accusethat the pictures were modified to make her ugly!

By the way,Nicole Kidman is naturally very pale,as she's a redhead,and if she used a skin bleaching process so she wanted to back to her natural complexion,as she lived also before in australia,and it's not to get a complexion totally different from the one she had naturally,this is the difference between the treatement used by "non-white" societies and the white one,there's a diffrence between avoiding to tan and bleaching chimically one's skin.

I guess it's a matter of pride then, I would never leave the house with greasy hair and wearing clothes like that. Everybody has different standards.

I personally disagree, but you're entitled to your opinion obviously.

Actually I do think Mary has had several cosmetic procedures, amongst them chemical peels and skin bleaching. i certainly didn't say I thought she had no surgery.

Rania dramatically lost weight?! She always looked slim to me. Even her graduation photos show that, as she still has great legs in those pictures and regardless of her cap and gown you can see she had a slim figure.

That's your opinion. My own is that she looks quite different facially and I stand by my opinion that she's had work done. Having shown old photos of Mary to a Mary fan she was shocked; she didn't recognise her.

I'm well aware of Nicole's natural colouring, I used her as an example of the recent trend that people have emulated.

Thank you but as I come from a "non-white" society I know all about the attitudes to skin colour. Perhaps you are not aware of the recent fashion trend to be pale as opposed to simply not tanning.

Bleaching? After becoming a princess, you mean? I do remember her porcelain look at the wedding..

Images that provide a good contrast of Mary's before and after ...

Mary looked good both before and after. She just polished up her look and lost a few pounds.

The only change in Mary is she lost some pounds & got major tips from hair to wardrobe. Other than that, i think she hasnt changed much. I prefer her after look, looks more elegent & more up for a princess job

Thanks for all the pictures everyone. Most changes in princesses I'd allready seen before. But I had never really seen any old pictures of Mary. It really surprised me to see she was a bit chubby even, wow she definitely lost weight.

I read that Mary used Ole Henriksen's bleacing serum. I don't know how true it is, but Mary is clearly lighter. I don't she's naturally pale, but I guess it doesn't really matter?

I agree that she's lighter, but I think it's because she's doing less activities outdoors, for a number of reasons: she has her official engagements, many of which take place inside; she has two babies under the age of two to care for, which robs you of some of your free time, and it's chillier in Denmark, so outdoor activites are sometimes harder in the winter.

If she's using a little bleach, that's fine. Just don't go Michael Jackson on us, Mary!

I agree to the abovementioned reasons. She came from, let's say Australia (Tasmania) and now she lives in Denmark, with a considerably less friendly weather..!! How tanned can you get?

Besides the first close up one, the others aren't so bad. She looked like a normal woman. Of course, now that her financial situation is changed I expect she'd look different. If you look at her two sisters, they don't look much different than they did before. If I was Mary's sister, I'd want as much beauty advice and help as I can get! But, I guess they can't afford it? (or aren't interested)
