The tiara and the 1960s-themed hairstyle are lovely.

Wonderful look, though I don't understand the shawl: not sure it was a good addition and in white??

She recycled the dress she wore at Madeleine's wedding.

I thought this "look" was far better than the fussy, floppy hair with the stand up necklace and the neck high lace shrug that obscured the neckline and the sleeves.

Removing the shrug exposed a beautiful neckline and lovely sleeves. Add a classic hair style and her daisy tiara and you have a winner.

The only things "off" were the ribbon-style belt which needed to be stiffened and the wierd shawl/cape/?.

That officially makes it a bust!

I think she looked nice. I like how everything was kept very simple since the dress pattern/work was busy. Ive always liked this Valentino dress but think it's slightly tight.

For some strange reason I like the dress from the parliament dinner. The pattern is interesting and her red order helps break it up some. I do wish she could get some height to her tiara or would have worn the amethysts.

I love MM's blue dress - I like it more than I did when she wore it to Madeleine's wedding. The colour suits her a lot and I've always loved the Diamond Daisy tiara, it's so pretty and delicate. The shawl/cape manages to work well with the dress. Given her recent fashion choices, I thought this look was a breath of fresh air.

I'm not so sure about her latest gala dress, though I don't dislike it or hate it. I recognise it from somewhere but can't remember where exactly, but I'm thinking King WA and Queen Maxima of the Netherland's inauguration? The colours and patterns together remind me of Delft pottery. I do know that I'm not a fan of her shoes, however. It would be interesting to see a close up of her tiara or the back view of her hairstyle.

Yes, you are correct in saying this dress was the one worn to King Willem's inauguration. I think it is one of the Gala dresses that looks better with the riband and orders as they break up the somewhat fussy pattern. I like it! It is a nice look on Mette.

Now that is the best description of the gown ever, and I so agree with you, wasted money on that one.................and bad taste in choosing that gown to wear.

MM has gotten quite thick around the middle for a lady not that old, almost exactly the same shape as her MIL. She might want to rethink the whole sheath dress silhouette. Perhaps a boned bodice with a more flowy skirt would be more flattering.

Lovely dress and the color is divine. I'm not sure about the satin ribbon belt as it is bunching a little.
