EDIT:
I just hope Sonja will leave the yellow dress at home.... we already got to see it twice this year: during the State Visit to Finland and during the State Visit from Brazil.
I wouldn't survive a third time. ;)
Btw: maybe the Queen will wear her dark blue silk dress. She wore during the last State Visit to Germany, too.

I think the tiara is not so bad then the necklace. She has worn it also with an other necklace with rubies, or red stones which had a nicer desgin.

Lichtenstein 10-15-2007 03:45 PM

I don't think the tiara is too bad. It does match great with the colour of Sonjas dress and her hair.

Her_Majesty 10-15-2007 03:52 PM

I'm not sure what to think about Sonja's new Tiara-hairstyle...
She used to have this "Sonja wave" ;)... now she pulls her hair back.
It looks quite usual... and I'm missing her stunning hairdos.
Okay, the Tiara and the dress match the German flag (nice idea)... but I think this Tiara will never be one of my favorites. I just don't like it.
Sonja looks elegant anyway.. she can wear whatever she wants ;) (except of the yellow nightmare).
I think she looks pretty: her make up looks beautiful and I'm glad she returned to her original dark hair color!



Viewimages has fantastic pics (also of the Gala):

Just search for "Sonja"
