I don't like the puff sleeves, and the dress should be more loose from the hips down. Somehow this too looks outdated just like Victoria's dress. Really disappointing night dress-wise from the Swedish ladies, I'm missing Madeleine.

The red gown is a tad too tight and the pearl choker does nothing for it either so a bit of a miss tnight.

A hot mess, a lot of styles and nothing works together. As usual it shows that Sofia obviously uses a different hairdresser (or none at all) than the other SRF ladies.

Love the color and the idea of the dress...but the fit is off.

I love the colour of Sofia's dress and the design; though the fitting is indeed rather off and it seems like it's a couple of sizes too tight for her, making it rather unflattering on her.

Yes I wondered about that. She has a very poor hairdresser. My mom is hairdresser and when she saw Sofia updoo she said she done it herself, looks sloppy, unfinished. Quite a difference from the neat, stunning updoos that Victoria usual has for this event.

Oh honey... No... NO

There is SO MUCH going on. I get that she was going for statesque, but man.. No. The hairstyle does not support the tiara whatsoever. Genuinely one of the worst tiara hairstyles I have ever seen. They couldn't even line up the tiara with her hairline!

The idea of the Galadriel/Arwen sleeves are fun, but why the puffy upper part?

The choker is too busy and the glitter clutch ain't matching either.

I would ALMOST prefer one of her shitty prom dresses she wore on her first few go's.

Great colour - otherwise a bit tight and not loving the sleeves. None of the Swedish women looked great today unfortunately.

I adore it all. Such olde world charm styling. It delights me. This is a great example of when the sum of the parts (the styling) is superb and exceeds what I'd expect with any other combination.

And if you look at her seated, it is not too small at all. JMO.

On paper, the description of the dress, jewels, hairstyle sound great. In reality - a complete miss. The dress is too tight and just weird. The whole package just doesn't sit right and I cannot put my finger on what it is.

The colour is gorgeous. And yes - none of the Swedish female royals looked that great.

Positives: color is stunning, love her hair.

But sorry way too tight. Just looks uncomfortable to be in.

The choker doesn't suit her at all.

I like the bottom part of the sleeves but the puffy shoulders ruin it.

It's kind of a theatrical look: a bit too tight, a bit too puffy in the sleeves, a choker that's a bit too high and tight. I keep on thinking "Hello, Dolly" or "My Fair Lady" rather than a Nobel gala night. It's not bad, red is a great color on Sofia, but the overall effect is a miss for me.

Sofia looks lovely in that colour, it really flatters her, however, the gown is a mess. Words fail me and I find it impossible to describe the gown except to say props to Sofia for designing it and a medal for actually wearing it.

Color is lovely on her, but that’s about it.

Honestly- what really stands out for me is the choker. It doesn’t suit her at all. Rarely have I seen a piece of jewelry and had such a strong negative reaction. But there it is.
