MM's dress looked much better without the jacket! :smile:

I am quite disappointed by Sonja's dress... what's that strange belt-thingie?
Doesn't really match.
At least it's not yellow. Horray.

Mette-Marit has so ugly hair-roots :ermm:
she has to do something with it!!! :bang:

Victoria's dress is by Escada.
Mette-Marit's dress is by Valentino.
Sonja's is probably self made(just kidding) :biggrin:.

I really like Margrethe's dress, she looks very regal. Mette-Marit dress looks beautiful when the jacket is removed, she seems to have worked on her posture and is looking very elegant and beautiful tonight. Victoria is her usual wonderful self looking beautiful as always and I'm not quite sure what to think of Queen Sonja's dress yet, maybe when there are more photos of it :flowers:

Now that I've seen more of Sonja's dress I have to say I like it but she doesn't seem to be as dressed-up as the others.

Are the black sleeves on Sonja's dress part of the dress? :huh:I think the dress grows a little bit on me. It's not her best, but also not her worst. (yellow nightmare)

I think I quite like MM's look tonight. The dress looks much better without the jacket. She looked fine.
I just wish she would have done something with her hair!

I don't think the Chancellor's dress was that bad! At least in moving pictures!

I love the design of the new Opera House, simply amazing looking. The opening looked like fun and the women looked fantastic. Mette Marit's dress was divine.
