Lovely color and a great Elie Saab dress. The length of the dress is a lovely length for her and the long sleeves worked well. The headband could've looked better on Estella, it's way too childish. Why not where a headpiece or a hat?

Elie Saab dress

A big LIKE!

I have to agree with you. I love this look. The dress, the color the length, everything. And of course Estelle in her matching dress was just adorable. And just as a side not, I loved little Oscar's outfit for the day, and the shoes were too fun, especially when he untied them.

The color of the dress is beautiful, but there is something off about the dress itself.

I am very rarely a fan of all lace dress but I really like this one. It's the color. The beautiful raspberry shade looks good in her and takes away the doily affect IMO. I even really like the length, it's different, and I like the sleeves.

The only thing I would have done different is the head band. I would have ditched it or put it on Estelle.

All in all among the royal women, she was my best dressed.

For me, her hair let's her down badly.

The colour was nice on Crown Princess Victoria but that headband looked silly!

Back view on the hair.

And yet another lace dress of Victoria that looks too transparent / revealing from the backside.

I think the colour and lace fabric of Victoria's dress was gorgeous, but I'm not so sure about her hair. It seems a little casual for the occasion, I think a bun with one of her beautiful head pieces would have looked better, but that's just me.

The color is lovely in Victoria, but the length of the dress is not really doing her any favors. In my opinion, it would have looked better if it were knee-length.

Loved the style, loved the colour. Both suit Victoria very well, but what on earth was she thinking wearing a pretty rough looking ponytail and a headband!

I can only assume she was not feeling quite herself when she dressed.

Crown Princess Victoria looked beautiful in the gown of elegant length and fashionable colour, and with a soft, pretty and intricate hairstyle.

I like the whole look, don't mind her hair and liked the coordination with Estelle's outfit. Only quibble - maybe flesh coloured slip or lining would help.

Not impressed by this look. I don't like that black bow.

The porportions are off. The shirt doesn't match (in style) the skirt either.

I am not a fan of the hair bows she wears either.

I agree with the poste who says the blouse looks a bit out of proportion. Nice overall, though.
