It seems like it has been a very long time since we have seen Tessy de Nassau participating in any events. It would be nice to see her again.

I know that Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria-Theresa will be there I wonder what other members of the ducal family will attend this state visit? I can't wait to see photos of this coming event in November.

Prince of Chota 11-03-2008 12:49 PM

I wouldn't expect to see either Tessy nor Alexandra wearing the Nassau jewels. Alexandra in unmarried (and still quite young), and Tessy is treated as morganatic (there was not even a tiara at the wedding). Nonetheless, I think it would be nice to see them participate, and even without antique jewellery they would look wonderful.

Yes, but both Tessy and Alexandra wore tiara's on National day this year that the Grand Duchess has worn herself so there might be a chance of more jewels.

The Grand Duchess looks very pretty in these pictures. She is such a classy lady

Tilla 11-24-2008 11:04 AM

Also with longer hair, Maria Teresa looks very pretty.

I like the longer hair - the color is pretty blah.
MT needs to give the longer hair some style - it just hangs very limply around her face - her hair needs some volume and waves.

pamk 11-24-2008 11:50 AM

Also, if MT had switched her colors in her outfit - if she had worn a pink top under a black jacket, the whole effect would have been much more flattering figure-wise.

I must say MT looks refreshing in the gala dinner gown. It kind of looked like she had dyed her hair brown.

I'M LOVING THE GRAND DUCHESS' TIARA!

JessRulz 11-25-2008 06:54 AM

From earlier in the day, MT dyed her hair dark brown! It makes the tiara (turquoise jewels?) stand out even more.

The President of Finland seems to get along with many royals, she's always invited to a lot of their major events.

Nitefeatherz 11-26-2008 02:40 AM

It could be that she was dying it BEFORE and this is her natural hair color? ;)

I do like the parure,on her daughter Alexandra that is,not on Maria-Teresa,it is too "small" for her.She looks like a matrone on a night out.
Talk about hair?No comment,awfull.This whole outfit & jewellery isn't becoming her at all.

What I do like is the brooch,something in that order is more befitting with a Lady the size of Catherine the Great,allthough much nicer,sweeter,a person.

I agree with everything you have said. Her hair looks terrible (dirty?) and the tiara is not the right size for her. I worry about Maria Teresa when I see her like this.

MamboQueen 11-26-2008 03:27 PM

:huh:
I have no idea what the previous members are talking about in regards to MT's look.

She looks fabulous! Her hair is dark, shiny and she looks younger to me than she did with blonde hair. I'm glad she made the change and hope she keeps it that way, after all Luxembourg happily welcomed a beautiful brunette when Henri married her.
You go MT!
:clap:

I totally agree. MT has so much at her disposal she could look much better. The hair is mousy and drabby the tiara makes her face look even more round. She is no longer 22. An updo and one of the other beautiful pieces of jewelry would make her look more royal. She also needs to lose some weight again. However her smile is as bright as it has always been.

Does anyone know if the parure was a previous gift from Finland? Was it designed by a Finnish designer? This would help to explain why she wore this parure when it is so unflattering (i.e. the tiara).

No,it has nothing to do with Finland really,just her choice for the night.

There are experts here:

MT looks awful in the gala photos. The turquoise tiara is lovely but needs an updo to help frame it - it cannot be plopped onto such a flat hair-do.
MT does not look healthy - her face looks puffy, very oily - her complexion has really gone downhill. A diet would help immensely.
What a difference from earlier in the day when she looked much better.

Thank you for the link, Lucien. It seems that the parure is just as popular on that site as it is here.

ChantalC 11-27-2008 04:11 PM

Thank you, everyone for the photos of the State Visit from Finland to Luxembourg. :flowers:

MT looks different in the gala photos. Her hair colour changed. I like her tiara and the jewels but It would be nice to see her hair up.:smile: It actually made her young.;)

Yes, I do agree with you on the complexion, hairdo and weight issue, although the latter is such a sensitive issue for most women:ohmy:. I have a feeling that hormomnal changes are the cause of both the complexion, puffiness and weight gain, a shame the GDuchess was such a beautiful woman in her youth and does have the means at her disposal...

Tilla 01-03-2009 12:07 PM

Wow, now I am just somewhat speechless, after having seen such a large number of films, Jewelleries, Historical informations .... all this is, nevertheless, rather new to me. Thank you.:rolleyes:
