How do you know it's haute couture? Have we already found out about the designer? Would love to know that.

Victoria looks beautiful tonight!! I love everything about the dress. The things that I love more of the dress are the colour and the backside. Also the shoes are fine

Victoria´s hairdo:
The reporters speculate that the dress is from Elie Saab.

I love this dress paired with this tiara. Something about the design of the front of the dress matches the tiara's look. I think she looks fabulous!

Victoria looks stunning! The tiara matches the dress so well. I love the Roger Vivier shoes!
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.

When I saw the gown, I actually thought of Basil Soda, another Lebanese designer. It reminds me of the dresses from his haute couture ss2010 collection. (Although I will admit it is not unusual for Lebanese designers to copy/reference each other.)

This is now one of my all-time favorite gowns for Princess Victoria. I never cared for this tiara but it matches perfectly. Love the Roger Vivier shoes and the Ellie Saab (I think) gown....perfect!

Victoria astounds. I sincerely fall in love with her jewelry, dress, and hairdo. She's everything one could hope for from this heiress. I wish I could be there. I hope their day went well and they enjoy and they marvel at such a happening. She is so beautiful. They are good to see.

This is why I don't like empire-waist dresses. Regardless if you're pregnant or not, an empire-waist dress will make you look preggers!

This is a gorgeous dress and not like many of the other evening gowns Victoria has worn. I love the embellished bodice and sleeves. The draping of the skirt and train are very glamorous and the back is indeed very 'old Hollywood'
I also like the up-do, very intricate. Victoria looks lovely.

Yes, empire waist bridal gowns were the saving grace of many a bride

I could go on and on about this evening gown and dissect it down to it's core as to why I love it, but the short version is quite simply that it's beyond stunning.

And the choice of jewellery, absolute perfection. The cut steel tiara, 'simple' collet necklace and pearl pear drop earrings could not have been any better matched to the gown itself.

I've truly never seen her so well put together than how she was last night.
