And especially because she decided to attend at this rather official event in the last minute. If she would have been the main honorary guest I wouldn't have minded her dressing like this.
I'm not sure what the point is here. Madeleine's gown was not outré in colour or style in any way. Are you saying that if her parents are present and the Vice President of the USA she should not wear red?

I think a quick look on the current affairs threads of many royals you will find ladies who are not the "star" of the evening dressed in red. From weddings to concerts, Nobel presentations and gala's, etc.

Yes, I would understand if people get upset if she wears red at a sad event like a funeral,or when the dress code expects everyone to wear muted colours or when she visits a place where a tragic thing has happened etc. but I do not think she did anything wrong here-no risky decolleté ,no ultra-short skirt or strange cut-outs and no ridiculous head gear....

I have some reservations to wear a bright red or white at a wedding-because I would not like any guest to steal my show or also wear white when I am the bride, but for any other occasion I do not mind the colour as long as the cut and design is not too revealing.

I understand the no white at a wedding , but a guest can wear any color there is no way that is going to take away from the bride.

My cousin had specified only red or black could be worn at her wedding to which I retorted there will be no red or black at mine....

Anyway I liked Madeline's dress...

The princess looked lovely in the red dress. A very beautiful bride-to-be...I think this style of dress suits her very well.

LOVED her in the red dress!

The earrings, not so much.

And if she just HAD to wear her hair swept to the side, I wish it would've been more anchored/smoothed at the back of her head.

She is much prettier than the dress. The color is fine, her hair is unremarkable, as most young people, today. The dress is second rate, not a winner, Madeleine outshines the dress. Looks like something you can get off any rack.

She looked absolutely stunning in that red dress! One of her best looks.

Madeleine at the publishing of the banns, in a dress designed by Pär Engsheden (who designed Victoria's wedding dress).

I don't like the shiny material for the church service, the colour is lovely. This kind of dress isn't Madeleine's style at all and she looks uncomfortable in it. And I wish she had had her hair up.

Oh dear, this dress isn't good, far too shiny{which always emphasises even the slightest excess weight}, and the flaps are simply horrible.

Sad that on this special day, she is eclipsed by her elder sister !

I like the color and neckline however I don't like the dress. I really dislike the fabric and I wish she wore a dress like Victoria's.

I like the colour and style of her dress, not sure about the fabric but overall I think she looks lovely. Nervous but still lovely. I love the colour and style of her hair and her bow/fascinator was very attractive. The way her hair waved down on one side over the neckline and her collarbone made her look quite ethereal.

We won't mention the flap thingees!

I am sorry I simply do not see what you mean - the peplum is ultra fashionable and Princess Madeleine has no excess weight to accentuate! The colour and fabric are both lovely, it is an important day in her life, so of course the shiny fabric is appropriate.
It is not a competition and Crown Princess Victoria also looks lovely.

Yes I thouht the same when I saw it.

I could imagine that Madeleine´s wedding dress will be similar to the dress today. Atleast the upper part and neckline is looking really good.

I don't have any objections with regard to the shiny fabric, but Princess Madeleine's dress could have been tailored less stiffly and exhibited a more romantic, not so angular design i.m.o.. Cf. her gorgeous dress at the wedding in Monaco http://www4.pictures.zimbio.com/bg/P...XyLemCVJex.jpg. Its nested mini-sleeves and neckline as well as pleats running further downwards (thus loosening the skirt part) make quite a difference. Besides, I would have preferred an intricate updo.
