I quite like this look. Very nice colors.
Only thing that I don t like at all is the belt. Completely unnecessary.

I tend to agree with you on this one. While I like the color combination, I think it might be better if the jacket was blue and the skirt was black. As it is, with the blue on the bottom with the pleats, it makes her hips look as big as the side of a barn (old expression of my grandmother's). The skirt would probably be better in a straight or A line silhouette. The heavy tights always remind me of Maria in "The Sound of Music" and don't seem dressy enough but I get that it tends to be colder in Europe. I am surprised her hair isn't falling out from the over-bleaching.

In spite of everything, for once she is appropriately dressed for an engagement. So I will take this, imperfect though it may be.

I like the dress and coat, but not together. The second outfit is nice and I like that shade of purple, although the shoes don't really go with it IMO.

Although I am not a fan of lace dresses, I have to say a cream-coloured coat paired with a white lace dress is an excellent ensemble. It is so airy feminine. Other ensembles are all right. The purple dress, however, is very very unflattering. It emphasises Crown Princess Mette-Marit's not-so-svelte figure as well as it is crumpled.

The green coat is lovely. The purple coat is a lovely door on her but its just so tight.

Purple one is way too tight. The green one looks very good, that is a good style for her and waistline. don't know why she wore the white coat over the lace dress.

I liked this ensemble but she should have chosen a better bra. White, more than often, is very dangerous.

It appears that the mauve and the black and white dresses have bra issues they are nice garments but really she couldn't get that right IMO a bit messy but they could have been stunning on her.

The first outfit is my favourite. The green coat looks very good. Cream-colored jacke and white lace dress are nice too, but looks jacket looks unflattering.

I think a V-neck or more decolleté would flatter her more.

The sky blue printed dress dress is very feminine. I am not sure about the sleeves. I like elegant simplicity of the second ensemble.

I really don't like this blue dress - it's too old for her imo. Much prefer the second and love the ballet flats.

She needs to do something with her hair. It almost looks like she didnt even blow dry it. She has beautiful blonde hair, but it's always just hanging.

I like Mette-Marit's first dress, IMO it looks good on her and the colour is very refreshing and summery. I'm not so keen on the fitting of her second outfit, there's just something a bit 'off' about it to me. However it looks nice on her in general.

Mette-Marit's blue printed dress is from By Ti Mo:

She looks nice in the blue dress and the white dress and red jacket. They each have a little asian feel to them.
