I really like the dress, it looks good and I like how half is covered with the black overlay and the other half isn't. I don't like her hairstyle, the parting isn't nice on her.

She looks really nice and I am usually a fan of black and white combination. The dress would have been even better if it wasn't for that weird (although creative) white spot that's not covered by the black silk.

I like the dress is diferent and she has a perfect body so everything looks good on her, however I think that she could wide the tatoo...she is in a diferent position now, she is not a commun girl so she must have a diferente approch, despite she could not change her past she can now have more careful when this things come out... a tatoo is easy to cover with her long her...despite that the dress is lovely and she looks beautiful.

This isn't Sofia-bashing, any other princess would be critizised for this outfit.
Visible Bra-straps are a big no-no, looks cheap.

The dress doesn't look good when she is walking. The white fabric looks like sheet and the overlay moves oddly.

The dress isn't the best quality. Like Pss Marie of Denmark it seems that Sofia H. goes for a lot of cheap lower-quality dresses instead of for less dresses of better quality.

Agree with everything....... Dress is not perfect, but not bad and somehow classical but with some Special details. Not a bad choice!!!
Definately going in the right direction!

But: every Dress will be destroyed with her tattoo in the back - just imho. I also would looove if she may decide to remove it Prior to her wedding..... but I fear, she won´t do me this favour

I am not so sure those are bra straps. I think that is part of the white dress....it looks like they connect to the material in the back.

Yes, for some reason, dressmakers/designers are totally unable to deal with the fact that women have breasts which need support. If they do build a bra into a dress, they still make it look like a bra. How hard can it be to build a covering element onto the straps? Her face looks so lovely in that extreme close-up.

Ladongas I think it's because they get this idea most women are 5'10 with 10 percent body fat and almost no bust.

Easily could of had an element in the dress to cover the strap.

I agree. She is on pointe, IMO.

Sofia Hellqvist's Fashion and Style Part 1: June 2014 -

Ugh that tattoo keeps rearing it's ugly head! I have nothing against tattoos but this one is not pretty or artistic. Looks more like a drunken mistake 😕

I also don't like the bra straps that are visible in the back.

Still love the hair though!

Sofia has a very nice bustline and, to be honest, looking at the back at those itsy-bitsy straps, there is absolutely no tension on them whatsoever, whereas if they were bra straps, there most certainly would be.

So my vote goes for a not very good design feature connecting the white front to the back.

Eliza Jane Howell claims on their Twitter, that Sofia's gown at the King's dinner for the Nobel Laureates is from them.

It's a nice dress but I would prefer it in another colour.

The top part is beautiful but the rest isn't. And the colour isn't best choice for her.
