Troonopvolgers!: Terugblik: Victoria op huwelijk Letizia en Felipe. i thought wearing this trouser ensemble to Felipe and Letizia's pre-wedding dinner was a daring choice for Victoria
Has she ever worn the piece again?

I don't recall Victoria wearing this outfit, other than during the wedding. IMO, it is not a very flattering outfit on Victoria. The color is nice, but the shape of the outfit is not attractive. It was a strange choice.

No, I dont remember seeing it since either, PrincessofEurope

randomlyKeira 12-20-2008 02:16 AM

I do't rememer seeing that ensemble again either, but I am actually thankful, I didn't particularly like it the first time.

Boris 12-20-2008 08:57 AM

Thankfully it was never seen again.
Ill-fitting, not exactly appropriate for the occasion, and the weird design could be a gala uniform for the female crew members in 'Star Trek - The Next Generation.'

I loved seeing the recap of CP Victoria's gala outfits. Of all the gowns she has worn this year, none come close to the soft pink dress that she wore with the diamond headband during the Nobel Prize awards. That is the best look she has ever worn, IMHO.

Boris 12-30-2008 07:48 AM

I completely agree. The overall look worn for the Royal 'Day After' Nobel gala (NOT for the Nobel prize ceremony) was her best ever.
The gown of banded layers in chiffon with different shades of pastel blue is great to begin with - it's not easy to keep this kind of style soft and flowing, but this dress succeeds, also thanks to the fishtail train in the back.
I really wish we could find out who designed it - it's a great departure in style of the less flattering Edwardian silhouettes which Victoria has been repeating far many times in recent years. Maybe it's her first really sophisticated dress ever.
Open hair and diamond headband were beautiful as well, and I even liked the decision not to match the jewelry but wear it with pearls, adding a whimsical touch which is all too often missing from CP Victoria's styles.

Crown princess Victoria tonight at the gala of the official visit of the president of Finland
Beautiful recycled dress.

iakynthi 01-15-2009 05:53 PM

Yes,I remember that dress from the pole.It didn't impress me that much,though.I liked the hair very much :flowers:

sgl 01-15-2009 07:34 PM

I like this dress. It's not the prettiest dress that Victoria has worn, but it does look very nice on her. Her hair is really pretty. IMO, her hair (and tiara) are the best part of her look.

Maricar 01-15-2009 08:00 PM

I love her hair! The dress is ok. The top and bottom don't flow too well together, IMO.

marmi 01-15-2009 09:28 PM

Well this is far from my favourite as far as Victoria's gowns go, but it does work well for her, its a nice cut, has a few points of interest, and is not overdone IMO.

She wore it for a State Visit from Greece in 2008 and for the Nobel Prize 2007.

It´s a beautiful dress. I don´t like the colour at all, but I like it. Her hairdo is very nice:flowers:

Victoria's gowns are hit and miss IMO. Sometimes, she looks decades older in the really awful ones.
