I didn't like the hat; it was too small and out of proportion to her head.

I agree. I thought she looked absolutely enchanting. The colour is beautiful and looks really good with her dark hair. The style and material were perfect for moving around with a baby. After all, who wants to look all creased and messy when they hand over the baby in front of the Church and everybody else!

I loved her hat. It is totally unique and those flowers nestled beautifully in the sweep of her hair. Anything with a veil or a brim would just have gotten in the way during the ceremony. Fabulous colour contrast too.

The jury is out on the shoes although they are beautiful and I bet they are comfortable which, when you are on your feet in front of millions and trying to handle a baby gracefully, has got to be a major consideration.

I thought Victoria looked absolutely beautiful at the christening. The design and shade of the dress, the jewellery, her hair, the makeup and the hat were all very elegant and feminine and timeless. Yes, the fit of the dress was slightly off but not so much it bothers me, however the shoes do!

IIt seams that pale pink is the colour for Christening this year..both Princess Victoria and Marie use it, they both use very similar dresses...

I thought Victoria looked very beautiful on Christening day. Little Estelle looks just like her.
Absence is, in my opinion, important to find out whether something in your life is meaningful and important! It may be difficult to endure, but the end result is always revealing.

Its a cute summer dress, I like the detailing in the front. I wish she styled her hair differently.

Forget the hair! I'm impressed that she can fit into her pre-pregnancy clothes so soon! Good job Victoria. She's looking great.

Cute dress, beautiful jewelry, nice hair. Victoria looks great!
But what is truth? Not easy to define. We both have truths, are yours the same as mine?

I have always liked this dress, it looks good on Victoria now too. Her hair looks good from the side view:

I love her hair pulled back and flowing; nice to see her in this style. I like the polka dots and accessories, and those earrings look like they're pearls and lapis lazuli.

Respect people who find time for you in their busy schedule. But love people who never look at their schedule when you need them.

This is a very cute dress, and Victoria pulls it off wonderfully. She looks great, and I love the hair and accessories she chose.

I loved Victoria's Christening outfit. The colour was lovely on her and the make of the dress showed off her beautiful figure. I adored the hat.

What a pretty polka dot dress. Victoria looks so young with her hair styled like that.
