I think Maxima and Mette Marit looked both gorgeus

Mette Marit
for Ingrid alexandra baptism!

I vote for Infanta Cristina in Irene Baptism.

Maxima looked superb at C-A's christening. My second choice is Mary, even though her outfit was more suited to a spring christening.

Maxima's suit for CA's christening was beautiful.
One of the best ones ever on any princess.

I also like the liliac one that Infanta Elena wore. Very pretty colour.

I like both Maxima's outfit's which she wore on C-A and Alexia's christenings:)

I agree with you Magnik! I liked them best as well, very festive and yet very elegant and royal as well!

Yes, specially a flower-hat

For a Spring baptism, my favourite is Máxima at Catharina-Amalia's christening:

For a Summer baptism, I pick Infanta Cristina at the baptism of Irene:

For a Winter baptism, my favourite was the Duchess of Bragança at the baptism of Dinis:

Maxima's outfit at C-A's baptism is my absolute favourite, but I did like Letizia's at Leonor's baptism too. Mathilde and Mary also looked adorable, though I didn't care too much for Mary's headpiece.

Both Maxima's outfits were the best I thing.

Here are some outfits worn by royal moms through each of their children's baptisms. It's interesting to note the different outfits and styles worn and the evolving fashion sense in some cases.

Mette Marit's outfit at Sverre baptism
Indeed, I do not understand why she wore black colours for her son's baptism! I think it was so sad, and in comparison to the outfit she showed for Ingrid...

my vote is for princess diana in harry's christening, she really look beautiful

tiff_tiff_tiff2000 03-06-2006 12:18 AM

I'm bias..but I thought CP Mary looked stunning and very appropriate for her son's baptism. It was lovely to see something bright on a cold gloomy winter's day and it was a very unique outfit.

Second, it would be a tie between CP Letizia and CP Maxima. They both looked really beautiful!


bigheadshirmp 03-06-2006 12:28 AM

CP Letizia definitely looked gorgeous on Leonor's baptism......
my second choice would be Maxima at C-A's christening...and Mette-Marit at I-A's christening...

RhapsodyBrat 03-06-2006 12:38 AM

Infanta Cristina's dress during Irene's baptism and Crown Princess Maxima's outfit during Alexia's christening gets my vote, although Maxima's headdresses can be outrageous at times :D

Crown Princesses Letizia and Mary also looked fab!

Letizia's christening look was very pretty. Simple but elegant. I thought it looked very appropriate for a christening.

Mathilde has to be one of the classiest Crown Princesses out there but I thought the red boots for Gabriel's? christening looked very out of place and inappropriate for a christening.

Mary's look for the christening was very nice. The blue was a nice touch of color. The only "thing" I have about the outfit is the skirt. I like Mary's look from the waist up.

Maxima looked stunning at Catharina-Amalia's christening. She just looked radiant in silverish-white with a bow at her waist. :)
