Gorgeous Ladies in Gorgeous Gowns!

I haven't checked this thread for a long time. The postings are fabulous! :)

The gown matters, but the gown is more striking on a striking figure and when the woman has a beautiful face. Queen Rania would look gorgeous in a burlap bag even if the color of the bag didn't match her. She also has wonderful taste in dress. Maybe she had or has a good fashion advisor. She knows how to pick 'em so they do complement her and there don't seem to be any exceptions. Princess Maxima fits that description too.:)

green is a good color for her! the first dress is fantastic. the second dress...i think it would fit better if it had straps of some sort.

crisiñaki,
I can't even make myself like the first dress but I have to agree with you and pollyemma on the green one. It's lovely but am I biased since green is my favorite color.:)

Thanks for the pics!

I think that Mette-Marit's wardrobe during the state visit to the United Kingdom was absolutely breathtaking. (source: Getty Images)

I've been asking myself several times whether that red dress Laurentien wore in Denmark was the same as the red dress I saw Letizia wear (don't remember the event). Does anyone have a picture of that event? I really really love that dress...

Mary does look good there. That dress of Letizia's was great. Unfortunately, it also showed just how skinny she is. But what a vibrant color.

No, we can not! I agree with you on Madeleine's light blue gown. That is probably her best dress. I do indeed like the halter gown from Victoria's trip to Australia. I also like the reddish-purple gown from the same trip as well. Perhaps even more.

my most wonderful working outfit (Princess Letizia's), because of the color. from Getty:


and my most wonderful gowns, because of the details, meckline (i love Chinese collars!), cut/style, and also of the color:

I have to say that this is one of my favorites of Maxima's:

She has continued to get better and better in my eyes as far as fashion goes.

I agree. Maxima looked absolutely wonderful at King Carl Gustaf's 60th birthday celebrations. I must say I was impressed with Victoria's dress. The cut was simple but looked fabulous on her. I really liked the double straps. The shimmer at the top of her dress was also fabulous. It also helped that she was wearing the Baden Fringe Tiara. :) Is the dress two separate pieces? It kind of looks it with the cut near the middle but that could just be how the dress was designed.

^I read somewhere in the birthday thread that Victoria's dress was ice-blue. To me, it looks white, does anybody know for sure what color her dress was?

BTW, I wouldn't mind if Victoria repeated this dress; she looks so great in it!

I must say that I thought she looked pretty stunning myself. But then again I'm hardly objective. Yes, at least she didn't wear the 4-button tiara!
