: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:

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 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.

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.

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...

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:
