I don't like this top, it makes her soo big (..)

I can't link only the picture, so I link the netpage about the Corsica holiday. The last picture show MM with Marius, and I find her look very cool, so fresh and relax... A perfect summerclothing.

Love the red and white and Valentino shoes. Much better choice than the boxy black jacket completely unflattering

Always loved the combination of red and white.
From what I can see, Mette-Marit looks lovely.

Crown Princess Mette-Marit's ensemble is smart. I liked the colour combination.

She looks very lovely. Love the combination of the dress and the red jacket. The shoes look interesting.

Mette Marit is wearing the same lace used for the outfit Queen Silvia wore for Princess Estelle's christening.
Silvia's jacket was a one-of-a-kind design by Valentino, Mette Marit is wearing the Valentino collection dress, which was originally presented in red.

I'm not a fan of this dress, the colour isn't my favourite on her and it makes Mette Marit look bigger than she really is.

I like the dress and the lace but not too sure about the color, I like the red version better. I think if she had a different hairstyle, the overall would've looked nicer.

The sleeves make her shoulders look bigger than they are, throwing off the proportions of the dress. And then the peplum (is that what I'm seeing?) waist highlights the largest part of her mid-section. Not entirely flattering. I find that Valentino often cuts his clothes in such a way that are not flattering to anyone above a size 1.

However, I love the color, because I feel it give MM's cheeks a warm glow and highlights her eyes.

But its see through. Underwear is visible in this shot and the closeup posted earlier by iceflower. Or convince me I'm wrong cos I'd like to be wrong on this.

Apart from that, thank goodness she didn't wear the full original with flouncy sleeves and peplum - apart from size 0 models, who could wear it?

The dress is eh, the fact that it's made of lacy sheer material I would wear it.

I think there is a lining underneath the lace, and the lining is white/light pink. Maybe that's what makes it look see-through?

I agree. The cut of this dress is not doing MM any favors. I'm not loving the color either, I would love to see it in a pretty blush or taupe with a matching lining. It's not hideous, but I've seen MM wear much, much better.

The dress is all right, but Crown Princess Mette-Marit looks big in it.

mm not suree about the pink lace not doing much for her IMO the colour is really lovely but it makes her appear blocky and fat and she is not so bad choice better luck next time...
