The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Royal Trend Watch: Metallics for Madeleine

My only favorites here are Victoria and Marie Chantal. I thought Silvia and Madeline's gowns are awful.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Prince Carl Philip & Sofia’s Wedding: The Pre-Wedding Dinner

I was not impressed but most of these but the best for me was Madeleine's stunning gown. I also loved Sofia, Mette Marit, and Martha's dresses. I did not like Silvia and Victoria's outfits.

Even though it's kind of dated, I loved countess Alexandra's gown:

This gown is stunning and divine.

I don't find it dated at all. It's stunning, and almost too regal for words.

Along with Victoria of Sweden, the best Royal pre-wedding look of all time, imo.

Did she keep the Alexandrine drop tiara after the divorce ? It is an exquisite and historic tiara, so I am surprised it didn't go back to the Danish royal family.

It was a gift so yes she kept it and have used it after her divorce.

Countess Alexandra's pre-wedding red gown is stunning as is the styling. For me, this was much better than her actual wedding gown and look. She, and her gown, looked dated to me.

Jorgen Bender, the same designer who did her wedding gown.

One of the reason I love the wedding of Victoria and Daniel the most is that, there isn't any serious terrible fashion disaster if we ignore Mabel's pants. In the pre-wedding dinner all the CPsses looks very beautiful, and the bride-to-be is gorgeous too, the arrow, the earrings, the ES gown (and her bright smile AND Daniel), are speechlessly amazing.

Alexandra's pre-wedding gown (and most of her gowns) has a theatrical vibe but not as exaggerated as some of Q Margrethe's gowns, it's on point and stunning.

In 100% agreement! Her wedding gown, hairstyle and overall bridal look are quite dated, imo.

I find it regal, stunning, and elegant. Beautiful details.
