Now that's the way a future Queen should dress! I love it and so does everyone I've talked to about it. Even the Swedish fashion journalists are ecstatic about that dress.

It seems you are not in the minority after all. As Scooter has to eloquently said, "Victoria knocked it out of the park!".

I think this must be the most expansive, intricate, and truly dramatic gown Victoria has ever worn and more than worthy to be worn at the Nobel's. I love the cut, the colour and style of this gown, more than that, I am glad it screamed at the jewellery vault "Go Big or Go Home"!

This truly is a picture of a future Queen.

Victoria looked stunning with that majestic dress... she has the right body-shape to pull it off

Thats some princess dress on Victoria. Its such a contrast to her recent slimline dresses. It reminds me very much of former Princess Alexandra of Denmark who use to wear big full skirt ballgowns. We rarely see this style of dress anymore

Dare i say you couldnt get much further contrast between the furture Queen Victoria in this huge dress and future princess Sofia in her pink sequin dress. Victoria giving lessons on how to dress and be a princess at the Nobels
This is the stuff of fairytales

A great example of a lady wearing the dress, instead of the other way around (plus I'm a sucker for royal ladies in red LOL!)

I do know if a like this dress as a dress, but Victoria with this dress is STUNNING!!! REGAL!! A real perfection.
I could easily see her with this dress getting intronised as a Queen. Nevertheless, the diamond cross is wrong, too long, goes into her clivage, a miss.

I don't know if the dress she wears on Thursday is a altered version of the dress for the official pictures before her marriage in 2010.

Victoria on Thursday, wearing a dress which is much more interesting than you could see from the first photos. The blue colour is regal and looks good on her. Blue and black are a good combination. She has a nice hairdo. Although it is a bit disappointing that she wears the Baden Fringe Tiara again, it suits well with the dress. And Lilian's corsage, of course.
I love that Victoria didn't play safe with her Nobel dresses. Both dresses are totally different style than she usually wears. And a refreshing choice among all the dresses with a lot of lace.

Waiting for a better photo from the back view

Crown princess Victoria's dress is stunning but I kept seeing this picture and wonder why did she wear black bra/bustier?

I like the red but I don't like the style of the dress. The skirt is just too big and over the top. I think a skirt that wasn't so full would have looked better and been more appropriate. To me this dress screams 'all you prize winners you think you are at the top but you are wrong because this night isn't about you- it's about me because I AM the CP and you are nobody.'

Boring dress on the front, awful from the back. Shame as she looked so stunning the day before.

No she didn't, the gown was wonderful, only thing it had to much bunching on the side, the full skirt was perfect and she was only saying that to just a few members at the noble's, not everyone.........after all she is Crown Princess Victoria heir to the wonderful!

the blue/black dress is such an anticlimax compared to the day before. the front is boring and plain/cheap looking, the back is really ugly.

I like the front of the blue dress, the back looks like a badly wrapped present.
