Beautiful pictures, Humera. Thank you for posting them. :flowers: (BTW, is it just me, or CP Margarita's picture doesn't load properly?)

Anyways, my vote goes for CP Mette Marit. In my humble opinion, she looked the very best on this lovely day. Her tiara and hair combination was just perfect. She was a modern day Cinderella!

I also voted for Mette-Marit. This was one of my favourite tiara hairdos of her. But I also really liked Mathilde's, Madeleine's and Mary's hairdos. Queen Silvia looked also great (she chose the perfect hairdo for the large tiara) and I liked Queen Sonja's romantic hairdo looking like a heart. :smile:

It's kinda hard to tell which person matches the link in the poll cause there are no numbers to match.
I voted for CP Mary.

I voted for Madeleine. I love that tiara. It's loops of tiny forget-me-nots and is so delicate. When she appeared on the live-feed it was stunning.

A lot of other royal ladies looked great that day.
  • Princess Sarvath El-Hassan of Jordan looked fantastic. I really liked how the tiara went around her hair and the contrast of the diamonds against her hair.
  • Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway was almost my choice. The look was phenomenal- great hair do and the perfect tiara for her. Very minor deduction for the visible base, but overall great.
  • Princess Märtha Louise- she should keep the amethyst tiara, it looks great on her.
  • Princess Alexandra of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleberg- best of the minor royals
  • Queen Silvia- great hair, even better tiara.

Some were pretty disappointing:
  • Princess Margarita- the tiara base looks like it was wrapped with bright red fabric. It's drawing attention when it should be fading away.
  • Princess Astrid of Belgium- I hate the hair shelf she put her tiara on. I'm guessing it was to cover the tiara base but there are so many better ways.
  • Queen Rania- biggest disappointment of the day! Her hair was messy, the tiara was tiny, it was just bad.

Queen Silvia.
She looked fab and her tiara is the best out of the bunch.

2. Princess Madeleine ( love her tiara)
3. Mette Marit (her hairdo brought out the tiara)
4. Letizia (Love the braids!)

I don't know why, but my least favorite was Mary. I thought she could've looked better.

Marika86 01-16-2011 03:12 PM

My vote goes to Crown Princess Mary. I like her hairdo and the Ruby Tiara is amazing.
I also liked Queen Anne-Marie,Princess Letizia and Princess Mette-Marit

Initially, I ruled out most of the queens and other older ladies, since most of them did their usual hairstyle and stuck a tiara on it. They all looked great, but nothing new...not even from Silvia who has worn her hair down with tiaras recently to great success IMHO. Then I thought possibly Madeleine. She looked very pretty and even though the tiara still had the dark base covering, it wasn't distracting. But when I looked at all the pictures again...most of the younger ladies all had the same basic hairstyle - Mary, Maxima, Carina, Mathilde - its all basically the same. So when I looked again at who was innovative without being over the top, I voted for Mette-Marit. I thought the tiara was tilted a little too far back, but she looked beautiful and the hair from the back was very attractive.

And after looking at these photos (THANK YOU, Humera!) which showed many of the ladies from the back, I actually like Rania's hairstyle if she got rid of the strands. It wouldn't look near as sloppy.

There wasn't a picture of her, but I thought Princess Desiree of Hohenzollern (Birgitta's daughter) looked the best she ever has. For her wedding, she wore the tiara with her hair down, and for King CG's 60th birthday it was too...tight? Her hair at this wedding seemed the right balance for the size of the tiara and I thought she looked really good.

:previous: here you go: Princess Desiree of Hohenzollern
I'll also add her name to the second list above.

Little_Sunshine 01-16-2011 05:32 PM

1. Crown Princess Mary ( Very nice Hairdo and the Ruby Tiara is amazing)
2. Crown Princess Mette Marit ( She looke very lovely)

My favorite was Princess Martha-Louise. I loved the color and her hair style
I didn't like Grand Duchess Maria Teresa. I though it was too big(tall)

Wow, thanks, Humera! I didn't expect a picture and truthfully she wouldn't get my vote in this poll. I just thought that it is the best she has looked. Also, in your picture we get to see the tiara itself more closely than we have before. Thanks again!

JulieS 01-16-2011 09:23 PM

I voted for CP Mary. She was beautiful as usual.

Princesses Mette-Marit and Letizia were beautiful too.

sugarbaby318 01-16-2011 09:44 PM

I voted for Princess Mathilde. She is just the epitome of elegance and class. I love her tiara.

I also think CP Mary and Princess Letizia looked great too.

michelleq 01-16-2011 10:07 PM

Crown Princess Mette-Marit - the way she wore the tiara and her hair was amazing

Princejohnny25 01-16-2011 10:17 PM

Mette-Marit hands down. Though Mary's is really lovely and Letizia's looks stunning from the side, the front is just a bit to harsh for me.

agami.pearl 01-17-2011 10:09 AM

First, thank you Humera for this poll and great photos of different views of the hairstyles :flowers:
I voted for CP Mette-Marit - beautiful, delicate tiara and romantic hairstyle. everything is going well here - make-up, hairdo, jewelery and dress.
I also like:
CP Mary-great hairdo
Queen Silvia - typical hairstyle for her, but going well this magnificent tiara
Queen Sonja - amazing hairdo, but I would like to see tiara better (especially in front)

Hi, Josefine! We didn't get any really good pictures of it (maybe someone has one) but Maria, the wife of Princess Desiree's eldest son wore what looked to be a pearl (?) tiara-brooch in her hair and it was sitting toward the top of her head. The other daughters and daughters-in-law of the Haga princesses may have worn some sort of brooch or jeweled hairpiece but it would have to have been in the back, as nothing was seen in pictures of them from the front.
