My fashion critique:

  • Q. Silvia: very nice, would even better if the color was a little more saturated.
  • Margrethe: The bow is way too big. Remove the bow and it'd be a great look for her.
  • Beatrix: Prefered her wedding look. I think it's the combination of the lace and the printed skirt.
  • Sonja: Like the lace and the chiffon-type skirt but not feeling the yellow or the choker.
  • Anne-Marie: The flower at the waist makes her look a little... it's not flattering.
  • Maria Teresa: also doesn't show her figure- A waistband (maybe empire?) added to the dress would flatter her curves. Love the topazes with the black, though!
  • Madeleine- lovely, love the tiara as a necklace, but the fabric reminds me of the sequined tulle my childhood ballet tutus used to be made of (ok, that's a little harsh)
  • MM: She looks great. It fits, light pink is one of her best colors, and she's even standing up straight!
  • Sophie: lovely, if not for the furry silver shoulder pads. Also, a little more color in the makeup wouldn't hurt.
  • Charlene: lovely, the pearls go with the purse which goes with the shoes which go with the dress... I'm not usually a fan of the shawls but this works.
  • Mary: love the dress, the fabric, the jewelry. I don't like beige dresses but at least Mary chose a beige that does not look bad on her skin tone (cough, Letizia, cough)
  • Letizia: She really pulls out the stops at weddings, doesn't she? I really like the dress, if the slit wasn't there I'd love the dress.
  • Máxima: She looks good but a few tweaks would make it better. Remove the rosette, it's not good for anything, then connect the sleeves to the dress and remove the illusion netting. The cabbage-rose fabric pattern is a little curtain-y but for some reason I'm almost liking it
  • Mathilde: I can't figure out why I don't like this look. I know that I don't like the wide black belt but I think something else is off too.
  • Märtha Louise: looks great, the color and the neckline are fab on her. Not sure about the hair.
  • Rosario: She's really slim. Not bad, classic. Would have liked to see a bit more jewelry.
  • Elena: This outfit says "I'm a Spanish Princess, people!"
  • Cristina: yawn.
  • Tatiana: love the color, don't like the droopy shawl covering the top of the dress.

My choice was Madeline of Sweden. I love it was so simple and elegant, very classical type of dress and I think it just looked wonderful on pretty princess Madeline.
But I also liked Beatrix dress material pattern: black flowers on white and black lace on top.
Sonja of Norway dress had nice skirt color, and overall looked very feminine.
Martha Louise’s dress was cute and feminine too, but too pale IMO.
Elena of Spain dress was glam; I love this color and style. The dress seemed so Spanish. This drees was my second choice after Madeline.

My first choice is CP Mary but a very close second is Queen Sonja.....if I look that hot when I am her age I will be more than happy.

Initial reaction was Madeleine. Looked every inch the princess and loved the way she wore the Rose Brooch in her hair.

But I had to vote for Letizia. Too skinny, but man can that lady wear red!

Unfortunately my favorite (who was also a GUEST even though it was in her honor) was not included in the choices. Victoria was perfect from head to toe. Incredible dress, amazing jewels that although substantial did not look overdone or over the top, and nice hair and makeup. By far the best looking woman at the event.

Older ladies: Queen Silvia, without any competition.

Younger ladies: Tie between Princess Madeleine (better than her dress at the wedding itself) and CP Mette-Marit.

I'm a bit surprised that so many liked Letizia's dress... perhaps an attempt to be as fabulous in Red as she indeed was for the Danish CP wedding, but a failure in this rather odd Las Vegas show kind of gown.

I love Princess Mary's dress (Getty Images), but could someone start a worse dress thread? I really like Princess Elena of Spain but there are times when the ship of fashion has sailed without her.....

On second thought, Elena's gown isn't that bad. It's unique and the more I look at it .... well.... maybe the jury is still out on this one.

Marys dress was a little too raggedy for my taste.
